Prevention Prevention is the key ingredient in optimal dental health. Knowing what to do and not do are key to avoiding breakdown of the oral tissues, either teeth, gums or supporting structure. Poor oral health can have adverse affects on your systemic health….it's all connected. We start by performing a comprehensive exam which includes teeth, gums, jaw joints, muscles that are used in chewing, an oral cancer screening exam and an analysis of the plaque on your teeth to look for bacteria involved in gum disease. Diagnostic models of your teeth may be recommended for more complex bite issues. Restoration Teeth are important for several reasons, chewing being the main one. Over our lifetime, due to wear and tear, our teeth become weak; and weak teeth breakdown over time. A patient told us once that he wanted his teeth to work well and he didn’t want to feel them. We call that comfort and function. We help create smiles that work well, look good and can last a lifetime. From the simple to more complex cases we listen to your objectives and outcome you want for yourself and together we create a plan that meets those objectives. Enhancement First appearances are so important and one of the first things people notice about another person is their smile. Healthy attractive smiles open doors for people either personally or professionally. We take great pride in the smiles we have helped people create. It could be as simple as whitening your teeth or maybe you want a whole new look with porcelain veneers or crowns. A healthy attractive smile helps make a person more confident in their interaction with other people and a better sense of oneself is always a good thing. TMJ ( temporomandibular joint dysfunction) We live in a high stress world today and we all cope with stress differently. One common thread among people is clenching or grinding of our teeth. Ideally, if the teeth and jaw joint are in balance everything should be ok. When one of these factors is out of balance (a common occurrence) symptoms usually arise. Headaches, jaw joint noise or pain, earaches, neck pain, sore muscles…..these are all symptoms of your body telling you something isn’t quite right. Our studies at the Pankey Institute have given us the knowledge and tools to help people understand their problem and help them become pain free. How Invisalign Works Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
