Whether from disease, malnutrition, genetic disorders or an accident, it is occasionally necessary for patients to have some or all their upper and lower teeth extracted. While this can be upsetting news, partial or full dentures can be fabricated to restore an attractive smile, provide needed support for normal facial contours, and reestablish a highly functional occlusion.
Sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as twilight sleep dentistry, relaxation dentistry or dental sedation. This allows you to be sedated just enough so that you are unaware of the treatment and are pain free. So, if you have a fear of dentists, sensitive teeth, hate needles or have a bad gag reflex, ask your dentist about sedation during dentistry procedures.
This remarkable technique requires only 4 implants in either the upper or lower jaw to support all of the replacement teeth for that dental arch. All-on-X typically involves only one surgery to place all of the implants, avoids the need for additional bone grafting procedures, and provides the instant gratification of a full set of temporary teeth immediately on the same day as the initial procedure.
ClearCorrect is a form of orthodontic treatment that works to correct many different types of malocclusions through the use of a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. In many cases it provides an excellent treatment alternative to having traditional orthodontic braces and metal wires.
