Pleasant Orthodontic Solutions
People who want to do something about their crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth are often discouraged when they think about the painful process of wearing braces. The uncomfortable brackets and wires and intense wire tightenings are a bit much for many patients, especially adults. There’s no denying that braces are an effective way to treat extensive alignment problems or bite issues, but in this day and age they aren’t the only way. And it goes without saying that not everyone needs extensive orthodontic work. Most folks simply have a mildly problematic situation going on with their teeth.
Here’s what our office is doing for anyone that is able to make improvements without braces: we’re using a system known as Invisalign. In contrast to traditional orthodontic treatment programs, Invisalign doesn’t require any fixed appliances. It instead uses clear plastic aligner trays to move the teeth into a more appropriate position. The treatment is not only invisible and more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also much more comfortable. You’ll never have a wiring tightening, and you won’t have to worry about pesky brackets or wires scraping against your gums or cheeks. The best part is that you can take them out whenever you need a break for eating, brushing your teeth, and so forth.
Laser Dentistry For Gum Treatment
The teeth get the most attention, there’s no doubt. But if your gums become infected with gum disease it will ravage your smile. It’s a serious problem that is also the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults.
The older way of treating gum disease involves oral surgery, scalpels, and stitches. The infection is cut out and then the stitches help reattach the teeth and gums. As you might have guessed, this process is highly invasive and requires a significant amount of recovery time.
This is part of the reason why we have introduced the use of laser dentistry into our practice. Using the laser means there won’t be any scalpels or stitching. The laser just evaporates the infection and the teeth and gums naturally reattach. The entire process can be completed with little to no pain, and you’ll know that there won’t be any more dangerous infection spreading in your mouth.
A big part of what our welcoming dentists’ office focuses on is treating patients who need to have functionality restored to their mouth. This kind of complex treatment is greatly helped by relaxation dentistry. Relaxation dentistry not only calms your nerves, but it gives us a great opportunity to complete all of your dental treatment in one sitting.
As it happens, we are one of the few dental offices in the region that is certified to deliver general anesthesia during your visits. We even have an in-office nurse anesthetist. In a nutshell, if you are intimidated by the fact that you need extensive dental work, all you’ll have to do is receive the relaxing anesthesia and then wake up with a better-looking, healthier smile. You’ll never have to deal with the sights, sounds, smells, or feelings of the procedure, and you won’t have any memory of being in the chair.
