Many people think Orthodontists treat only children… yet every day, more adults are discovering the advantages of orthodontic treatment. Eventually our jaw joints, teeth, and periodontium (or gums) are going to break down. Orthodontic treatment puts the teeth and jaws in the ideal position to postpone your breakdown point.

Contemporary braces are more comfortable, far less noticeable, and require fewer appointments. The new Invisalign system offers some patients treatment without braces, using clear aligners instead. Beautiful, straight teeth are for everyone… and straight teeth can improve your overall dental health, your appearance, and your self-confidence.

It’s important to understand that you are at the very beginning of getting dental treatment and things can go horribly wrong. Always be honest about your symptoms. Don’t get into a quagmire of misdiagnosis. If you have pain, numbness, tingling, swelling, or burning in your face, head, throat, mouth, or jaw, it could indicate the presence of a cavity, gingivitis, gum disease, or gum recession. Make sure you have dental X-rays or dental ultrasound to rule out the possibility of any of these problems. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, be sure to get a dental opinion before beginning any braces or teeth whitening procedures. Even if your teeth look fine, and you don’t have any cavities, you should be getting a dental opinion before you begin any major dental procedure, including braces or teeth whitening procedures. It is imperative that you and your family dentist discuss any dental problems beforehand so that you can avoid complications and minimize pain and risk, cosmetic dentistry isn’t something to take lightly so you should discuss things beforehand.

It’s important to have your teeth properly cared for. Periodontal disease is an extremely common and important health condition that is especially common among those over the age of 75. There are many diseases that can affect your teeth and gums; periodontal disease is one of the most common. Periodontal disease can range from mild to severe, and the type of periodontal disease you have can be determined by the severity of your symptoms and by the oral hygiene measures you take.

It is important to realize that not all periodontal disease is caused by plaque or bacteria. It can also be caused by a combination of things, including some oral diseases. Therefore, knowing how to recognize periodontal disease, what you can do to prevent it and where you can get the medical care you need is key. Periodontal disease is prevalent in the elderly population, and if you are a senior citizen you will want to know the symptoms and signs of this serious disease so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to your treatment options.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:

Your teeth and gums may change in appearance, become discolored or experience a foul smell.

Itchy sores may develop on your gums, which can be painful and painful to your lips.

Orthodontic treatment can help adults of any age achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile. New patients are always welcome. Initial evaluations are complimentary, referrals are not required, and early evening appointments are available.
