When patients are excited about Invisalign treatment, the number one benefit we tend to focus on initially is the fact that they’re clear! The trays you place over your teeth to align them with the goal of attaining a gorgeous grin are composed of see-through plastic that means you can enjoy the advantages of orthodontic care without the visibility of traditional brackets and wires. So, keeping those trays clear and free of stains is sort of important. How to do this effectively? You probably already have a pretty good idea. Our quiz will make sure you’re on track.

Your dentist’s priority is always to save your tooth. However, some situations can result in an extraction or loss of the tooth. A missing tooth in the front of the mouth can usually seem like a higher priority because of the huge impact on the appearance. But a tooth missing in the back of the smile can have a huge impact on your mouth. Missing teeth can limit your chewing and biting functions. Depending on the location of the missing tooth, your speech function can also be impacted. A dental implant can restore these functions for you, as well as adding some additional benefits. (more…)
When you find out that a dental extraction is the best solution for your oral health, you might cringe for a moment.
