Are Your Teeth Getting Straighter?

There is no doubt that everyone would like to have nice white straight teeth. Don’t resent the fact that your parents never had you wear braces when you were a child. As well you should stop thinking you are too old to straighten your teeth. It’s understandable that as an adult you are more concious about your appearance and wouldn’t consider wearing metal train tracks on your teeth for a few years, so think about Invisalign.

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners. Aligners are changed every two weeks until your treatment is over and “voila” your teeth are straight. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental practitioner. What’s more, ask your dentist to view a virtual 3D treatment plan that shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the completion of your treatment.

From the results of the 3D treatment plan, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you. The Invisalign treatment can fit easily into your daily routine, without any fuss or embarrassment. There are no metal wires or brackets, so no need to worry about mouth irritations, as the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing as normal. As the Invisalign aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn, they allow you to straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious. Should you have an important meeting or event coming up that’s causing concern, you can always remove the aligners for that short space of time.

It’s easy to understand how a straight, even smile of glossy pearly white teeth will look great. But a cosmetically perfect smile often means it’s also a healthy smile. Signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can surface when teeth are crowded or too widely spaced apart. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better gum health. To find out more about how Invisalign can help improve your smile, make sure you visit an experienced Invisalign-trained dental practitioner.

The Bionic Tooth

For those of you who have lost a tooth in your mouth, you know that it can be uncomfortable, painful and very often embarrassing.  Whether you lost it from an infection, sports injury or just chomping down too hard on your favorite biscotti, the results are all the same.  YOU LOST A TOOTH…..Fortunately with today’s technology in dentistry, no one needs to live life with the smile of a pirate.

Dental implants are now the standard of care for areas of tooth loss. Whether you have lost one, many or all of your teeth, Dental implants can give you back that beautiful smile and get you chewing good food again comfortably.  They really are the closest thing to real teeth

Dental implants are small, titanium, screw-shaped threaded cylinders that are placed into the bone where the teeth are missing.  Titanium is a biosafe inert material which is also used in other operations like knee or hip replacements.  The titanium metal implant once placed in the area of the missing tooth is capable of creating a very tight bond with the surrounding bone.The implant acts like a root of a natural tooth and bone actually forms around a special coating on the implant to hold it firmly in place.  This is a special process called osseointegration.

After the implant is allowed to integrate for a short period of time (usually 3-6 months) your dentist will connect a natural looking porcelain crown on top.  Very often people can’t tell the difference between an implanted tooth and your real tooth.  For people who wear dentures or any removable teeth, implants can be used to anchor them in place and keep them rock solid for those great steak dinners.

The success rate of dental implants are very high.  With good oral hygiene and healthy lifestyle, your dental implants will usually out live you and will very often be the strongest teeth in your mouth.
