Get Straight Teeth With Cosmetic Dentistry
One treatment that falls under the cosmetic dentistry category is Invisalign. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal braces. This method of straightening teeth is perfect for people who do not have complicated dentofacial issues involved in their straightening prognosis, but instead who have a mild misalignment of their teeth. The process that is used in Invisalign treatment uses a series of trays, similar to thin, closely fitted mouth guards. The series of trays slowly shifts the position of the teeth, leaving you with straight teeth at the end of the process. Invisalign is perfect for people with mild misalignments and for those who have a little extra time for the straightening process. Because the trays are removable for up to several hours a day, Invisalign is a great treatment for those with big events coming up for which they do not want metal braces, who play a mouth-oriented instrument, who play sports, and for those who simply want to avoid the extra pain and trouble of traditional metal braces.
Another field of expertise that Library Plaza Dental offers is dental implants. Implants are an amazing feat of modern dentistry. We will discuss implantation at length in future blogs, but to summarize, an implant is an artificial tooth attached to an anchor that is implanted into your jaw bone. This is a permanent and low maintenance solution to a missing tooth or teeth. Entire bites, either upper or lower, can be replaced with implants. One of the amazing benefits of implantation is that the anchor in the jaw acts to keep blood flowing to the jaw bone material and in doing so keeps the jaw from being absorbed into the body. Keeping the jaw healthy will keep your current jawline and facial structure.
