A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.
A properly completed teeth whitening can give whiter teeth and a beautiful smile. Dentodent provides two different methods of teeth whitening. The first method is a gradual at home with specially molded mouth trays for you. You whitens teeth yourself at home for a few nights while you sleep. The second method is a clinic bleaching where we laserwhiting your teeth while sitting in a dental chair. With this method, your teeth bleached away.
