Share Us On:



People often associate braces with the teenage years or adolescence—the awkward phase of life. However, adult braces are becoming more and more popular, as people determined to improve the alignment of their teeth and their smile, invest in braces that are less cumbersome and less noticeable. If you are an adult considering braces, below are the top four reasons why you should get braces. Your Smile Is Important Like it or not, your smile is one of the first things that people notice when they meet you. It can convey warmth and openness, and it has a tremendous impact on the way that people talk to and interact with you.

What To Expect After Your Root Canal

Share Us On:



Root canal procedures are performed to treat infections in the soft tissue (nerve) inside the root of your tooth. This infection can be really painful, and if left untreated, lead to further infection or tooth loss. During a root canal, your dentist will remove all the infected nerve, clean the canals, and then fill and seal the space. After this, a crown should be placed over the tooth to restore function and strength to natural tooth structure as root canal treatment can cause the tooth to become brittle and subject to fracture. Following a root canal, it’s normal to feel some tenderness around the affected tooth. This should only last a few days. If there is significant pain, or if it lasts longer than a few days, you should contact your dentist immediately. Jaw soreness or discomfort is common after root canal procedures; over-the-counter pain medication such as Advil or…

Can I Get Invisalign After Braces?

Share Us On:



Traditional orthodontic braces are incredibly common, with most people getting them during adolescence. Since the bite is still developing during these years, it is more malleable, and braces generally have a better effect on younger patients. However, many adults who had braces when they were younger experience some shifting as time passes, with teeth perhaps becoming crooked or the bite becoming misaligned. If you want to correct your bite after having braces, but don’t want to go through the discomfort of having traditional braces again, Invisalign is actually a great option for straighter teeth, minus unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces! Invisalign straightens your teeth using custom-made, clear plastic aligners. They are similar to teeth whitening trays and are removable (so you can take them out when you eat!) You will be given a series of aligners, which make small adjustments to the alignment of your teeth over time. Every two…
