- Appearance – The aligners appear virtually invisible when placed over your smile. Unlike metallic braces, Invisalign is made from a clear plastic that doesn’t show up in photographs and is not noticeable in conversation.
- Comfort – There are no brackets or wires. The plastic aligners are smooth and fit comfortably over your smile.
- Diet – Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removed during meals. This means that you don’t have dietary restrictions while you straighten your teeth. Just don’t forget to brush and floss after!
- Health – Smile alignment also improves your overall oral health. People who are happier with the appearance of their smile are more likely to continue to care for it after their treatment!
- Confidence – When people are happy with the appearance of their smile, they are more likely to feel confident when smiling and talking to others.
- Long Lasting – Custom teeth whitening trays are designed for your unique smile. They are reusable and can keep your smile bright for a long time to come.
- Oral Health – When people are happier with the appearance of their smile they are more likely to keep it that way with regular brushing and flossing. Even though teeth whitening is a cosmetic service, it can have health benefits too!
- Anti-Aging – Teeth whitening is a great way to create a more youthful appearance.
- Restorations – Are you looking to restore the appearance of your smile with a crown or veneers? Many patients opt for teeth whitening procedures prior to their restoration. The restorations are then customized to match your bright new smile.
- Toothaches – Rinse your mouth with warm water. You can also use floss to remove lodged food or apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth.
- Chipped Tooth – Save the pieces and rinse your mouth with warm water. Apply a cold compress until you can get to the office.
- Lost Tooth – Rinse off the tooth, but do not scrub it. Try to put the tooth back in place without forcing it into the socket. If you can’t reinsert it, place the tooth in a cup of milk with a pinch of salt. Getting to the dental office within the hour gives you the best chance of saving the tooth.
- Objects Stuck – Use dental floss to gently dislodge the object. Never use a sharp object.
- Lost Crown – You can ease tooth pain by applying a small amount of clove oil to the area with a cotton swab until you can get to the dentist.
- Soft Tissue Injury – If your tongue, cheeks, gums and lips are bleeding, rinse your mouth with a mil salt-water solution. Apply pressure with a moistened piece of gauze – if the bleeding doesn’t stop, visit the dentist for treatment.
- Titanium Implant – The implant is attached directly to the jaw bone. Through a process known as osseointegration, the jaw conforms to the base of the implant. This securely holds the restoration in place and acts as the root of the tooth.
- Abutment – The abutment attaches the implant base to the custom crown.
- Crown – Each crown is custom created to match the shape, color and texture of your natural smile. The crown provides patients with a natural appearance that looks and feels real.
- Daytime sleepiness.
- Decreased productivity and performance at work.
- Strained personal relationships.
- High blood pressure.
- Increased risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and depression.
- Memory and concentration problems.
Across America, millions of teeth are saved by root canal procedures completed under dental or endodontic care. The root canal procedure has been exaggerated to be extremely painful; however, this pain is often mistaken for the pain prior to the treatment. The soft tissue known as the pulp is surrounded by the white enamel and the softer layer called dentin. The pulp, which is vital during development, contains nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. Issues regarding the root canal often point to either an infection in the pulp or inflammation of the pulp which have various causes such as: deep decay, faulty crowns, or even repeated dental procedures on that tooth. If left untreated, the tooth undergoing infection or inflammation can lead to abscess under the tooth causing pain.
The procedure that dentists use in order to treat an infected or inflamed pulp is simpler and less painful than most people believe. The dentist will first take an x-ray and apply local anesthesia to the tooth to numb the area. An access hole will be then drilled into the tooth where root canal files will be inserted to remove the pulp and decayed nerve from inside of the tooth. After full cleaning, a temporary is placed and on the next appointment the root canal will be sealed by inserting gutta percha (a rubber) into the root canal. Finally, the tooth needs full restoration so the dentist would typically apply a post and crown or would do further work depending on the nature of the patient.
