Invisalign is an option for YOU!

Sep 27

Orthodontics has improved dramatically since the mid-eighties when I first became certified as an orthodontist. Braces are engineered to be more esthetic as well as well as more “patient-friendly.” They are easier to brush and keep clean, as well as healthier for the teeth and gums. Arch-wires also make the orthodontic experience more comfortable and efficient. They deliver lighter forces more continuously than in the past. This enables patients to finish treatment faster with fewer patient visits to the office. Since 1999, Invisalign has dramatically improved the orthodontic experience. Clear removable plastic aligners are worn in sequence to achieve orthodontic treatment goals. They must be constantly worn 20 – 24 hours per day to gain results akin to what achieve with braces. Additionally, they work best with full adult dentition which limits its use to adults and teenagers. We ask all prospective Invisalign patients to “know thyself” and envision whether…

Orthodontics is all about self-improvement. We are very thankful to have the opportunity to improve your smiles. Helping you look great boosts your confidence and enables you to optimize your dental health. The trend today is to want to look your best, stay healthy, and fit. Workout centers are everywhere and they are always busy. I urge you to seek self improvement in every way possible. The past few years, I’ve enjoyed staying fit, but also have focused on reading.

Night Time Dental Appliance for ALL!

Jul 26

Even if you accept having teeth that are not well aligned, you should treat yourself to a thin protective appliance. We all grind our teeth while sleeping and we do an enormous amount of damage to our fragile enamel and restorations. A thin, Invisalign-like night appliance is all that is needed to prevent future crowding and to protect you from tooth wear and dental restorations The process is simple – we either take an impression or use our digital scanner to create a model of your teeth. From there, we create your protective night guard for as low as $115. And you can sleep soundly not worrying about tooth wear or failed restorations which can cost thousands to repair.

Help Prevent White Spot Lesions on your Child’s Teeth!

Jun 24

Phos-Flur® Rinse is specially formulated for orthodontic patients to keep the teeth healthy and help prevent white spots! The first evidence of tooth decay is known as a white spot lesion in which the tooth’s enamel takes on an opaquee color in the area where a cavity is beginning to form.  Sodium Fluoride, the active ingredient in Phos-Flur® Rinse, is a mineral that works by making the teeth stronger and more resistant to cavities caused by acid and bacteria.  Safe, great-tasting and easy to use, Phos-Flur® Rinse provides clinically proven fluoride protection.  Adults and children 6 years of age and older should rinse once a day after brushing teeth with toothpaste. Vigorously swish 2 teaspoonfuls of rinse between the teeth for one minute and then spit it out.  No eating or drinking for 30 minutes after rinsing!  If your family dentist has prescribed you or your child a different fluoride product, please be sure to…
