All aspects of your appearance are important but without a doubt your face is the one physical feature that will be noticed more than others. Your face identifies you and each part is so unique that often they can become the main focus of attention. For instance, you may have heard people describe themselves as having a "pug" nose or "sleepy eyes. General dentistry, includes conventional bridges and crowns, dental veneers, replacement of missing teeth with dental implants and replacement of old amalgam fillings with tooth colored material. It may also types of dental implants include power stain removal and instantaneous laser teeth whitening. In general dentistry, the dental hygienist thoroughly cleans your teeth and advises you about your oral hygiene and how to look after your teeth. These days, flexible dentures are also available. These flexible dentures are based on a flexible material, they are easier to wear, comfortable, easily adapt to slight changes in the shape of the mouth (e.g. when eating) and are cosmetically indistinguishable from your natural teeth. What more is needed?
Dentists specializing in orthodontics, provide treatment for straightening of misaligned teeth and correcting bite problems. Conventional orthodontic braces are made from springs and wires that are often visible, permanently fixed to the teeth and can be unsightly and embarrassing. Fixed braces can also interfere with the oral hygiene. But this embarrassment can be avoided, thanks to advancement in cosmetic dentistry. Invisalign, the latest in cosmetic orthodontics, are virtually invisible, removable clear aligners. Now it is possible to have your teeth straightened without it being obvious to everyone around you. You can easily remove the clear aligners whilst eating and when cleaning your teeth.
Traditional dentures continue to be chosen by many people, but they have their limitations; removable dentures can be difficult to manage, sometimes they do not fit properly which causes problems speaking and eating. Wearers of fixed dentures which are attached directly to the jawbone and can only be removed by a dentist experience the same problem of achieving a comfortable fit that plagues the removable type of denture as well. Caring for your denture on a daily basis can heighten your sense of well being, and compliment your appearance. In addition, clean dentures help keep the tissues in your mouth healthy and free from unfavorable changes. Your dentures have been fabricated using high quality materials and it is extremely important that you provide them proper care to get the best service from them.
The cost of quality dentistry, especially cosmetic dentistry is best considered as an investment in your health. When you have experienced physical trauma and need to have teeth replaced, keep in mind that the cost of dental implants is based on their prominent function. Teeth play a role in your ability to speak clearly, prepare your food for digestion by your body and support your facial features. Your mouth is the gateway to your body and oral hygiene or the lack of it can be a contributing factor to the support or the deterioration of your health as a whole. Many dentists have flexible plans to accommodate credit cards, insurance and cash payments. But beyond financing the procedure, the most important thing is for you to discuss with your dentist whether cosmetic dentures or dental implants are the best choice for you.#
