A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
As cosmetic dentistry grows in popularity, dentists have begun to consider the aesthetic appeal of other procedures. Many restorative dental treatments now utilize cosmetic elements in order to keep your teeth looking great. Fillings and crowns, for example, are now designed in order to match the color and shape of your tooth, rendering them invisible.
Cosmetic procedures are also used as inform repair operations. Your dentist is likely to recommend that you fix a chipped, crooked or missing tooth in order to prevent future oral health problems — but that won’t stop the result from looking great. Consider asking your dentist what they can do to improve both your smile and your dental health.
Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance but your lifestyle as well. As an adult, you may be looking to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day. Or perhaps you’re a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective yet modern-day solution. Either way, Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold.
Drug stores and other retail health and beauty outlets are full of toothpastes, strips, and mouthwashes that promise to remove stains and discoloration from the surface of teeth. But if you’ve ever tried any of these over-the-counter whitening treatments, you’ve seen first-hand that the results they produce, if any, aren’t predictable, immediate, or all that noticeable.
If you want a truly whiter smile in less time, professional in-office teeth whitening from our cosmetic dental office can help you see the white smile you’ve been wanting.
The mouth may well be the most versatile part of the human body, as it is capable of the most functions including eating, drinking, speaking, breathing and even gesturing. Accidents are a common part of life and those that affect the mouth area can make life difficult for any person. For this reason, immediate dental treatment should be sought in the event of such occurrences. Attempting to hold off a trip to the emergency dentist may put one at risk dental compilations resulting in costly treatment options.
The teeth are among the body parts that have the greatest number of sensitive nerve endings. As such, any injuries or changes in the mouth often cause severe pain. Also, because of its level of moisture and temperature, the mouth is an ideal place for the growth of all kinds of germs, due to which it is constantly under the threat of infection.
A dental implant is a metallic insert that is surgically screwed into a properly sized hole inside jaw bone and acts as a metallic root for forming a tooth on it. An implant is normally a tapered cylinder with a diameter decreasing downwards. The surface carries threads which firmly grip the host bone. The crown of an artificial tooth is not formed directly on the implanted root. Once the implant has fully embedded itself within the jaw bone, a suitable prosthesis such as a crown, bridge or a denture is built over the implant.
