Saint Augustine orthodontics
Among the varied dental services we’re pleased to offer here at Dental Doctors of Florida are our Saint Augustine orthodontics. If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, there are complications and difficulties that are associated with that situation. First and foremost, for most patients, is that it is not cosmetically appealing. You might find yourself reluctant to smile or even speak so as to not show your teeth to other people. In addition, you might notice discomfort from the position your teeth are in. And your oral hygiene may also be less efficient, since flossing between teeth is more challenging. This could lead you to tooth decay and gum disease, putting your oral well-being in jeopardy. All of these are great reasons to come see us and find out what options you have.
Metal braces are a common way to move your teeth into a more ideal alignment that promotes better dental health and makes your teeth look better in the process. There was a time when braces meant a clunky set of criss-crossing wires and brackets that looked as if you were conducting a science experiment instead of getting your teeth straightened. But our Saint Augustine orthodontics represent a new era and a modern take on metal braces. The ones you wear will be lightweight and even stylish, especially when compared to the braces of the past. One thing that is certain: they are very effective in doing the job for which they are intended. And in the case of particularly stubborn teeth misalignment issues, they may be the only choice to achieve the results you want.
If you would like to avoid metal braces entirely, there is another possibility that is very exciting. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that do the same job as traditional dental braces, but with some distinct advantages. For one thing, Invisalign is made from plastic that is nearly undetectable when you wear it. This means you won’t have to feel self-conscious about being treated with our Saint Augustine orthodontics. No nosy questions will be coming your way, either, because the rest of the world won’t need to know that you are wearing anything on your teeth. Furthermore, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear, won’t irritate your mouth, and won’t dig into your gums.
32084 teeth cleaning
If you are concerned about the health of your teeth and gums you probably are sure to brush and floss your teeth every day. However, it is important to also have periodic dental cleanings if you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. If you want to get a 32084 teeth cleaning that will help ensure the good health of your teeth and gums, come see us at Dental Doctors of Florida.
At our dental office, Dental Doctors of Florida, our expert dentists are Dr. Christine Trunk and Dr. Merlin Ohmer. They specialize in preventive, restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry. At our practice we also offer orthodontics, clear braces and Invisalign. We want to make sure that our patients have healthy and beautiful smiles. One of the most important things to do to ensure a healthy smile is to have a 32084 teeth cleaning every six months. When you have your teeth cleaned at our office, you can be sure that all tartar, plaque and bacteria is being removed from the surface of your teeth. This is so important because ordinary brushing and flossing alone cannot remove tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that forms on your teeth when plaque is left on it for just a short period of time. And it is tartar that creates deep pockets between your gums and teeth – and this is where gum disease forms. When plaque, bacteria and tartar gather in the deep pockets of your gums, infection is created. This infection, known as gum disease, can go all the way down to the jawbone if not treated. When this happens, teeth will loosen and begin to fall out. This infection can even spread as it moves to other parts of your body.
However, if you are sure to get a 32084 teeth cleaning at our office on a regularly scheduled basis, this problem generally can be easily prevented. We also recommend that you have a comprehensive dental exam at regular intervals to make sure that your mouth, teeth and gums are healthy. We will take x-rays to search for cavities or other problems that cannot be detected through visual exam alone. Our dentist will also be sure to screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. If you would like to come to our office for a comprehensive dental exam or a periodic teeth cleaning, contact us today.
