Invisalign: Discrete teeth straightening with Invisible Braces

invisalign-dentist

Do you have crooked or slighted crooked teeth? Do you hate the thought of wearing metal braces that look unsightly and also make maintaining oral hygiene much more difficult?  Well you are not alone.  Many people share your frustration.  Well, don’t be discouraged because there is a solution to straighter teeth without the embarrassment of metal braces.  The solution is Invisalign. Invisalign is one of the most well established invisible braces systems for the straightening of teeth in a discrete manner. They are referred to as “Invisible braces” because instead of traditional wire braces, a series of invisible clear aligners are worn that moves your teeth to the position you want.  The result, straight even teeth in about the same amount of time as traditional metal braces.

Advantages of invisible braces:

The treatment is very discrete

The clear aligners are fabricated specifically for each individual patient.  The results are excellent and the aligners are completely transparent and difficult to detect.  This means you will wear Invisalign with complete confidence.

The treatment is comfortable

Patients that have experienced the discomfort and irritation of wearing metal braces will find Invisalign braces more comfortable.  The clear aligners are made of a durable smooth material, which allows your lips and tongue to glide smoothly over the aligners.  No catching food in your teeth or pinching of the lip over metal braces or wires.

You can eat normally and clean your teeth easily

With traditional metal and wire braces food can get trapped or stuck behind the wires and bands and can be difficult to clean. This build up can then affect your oral health sometimes leading to problems such as gum disease and bad breath. With Invisalign braces you can remove the aligners to eat the foods you want and you can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, enabling you to maintain healthy oral hygiene.

You can whiten your teeth while straightening them

With Invislalign you can also whiten your teeth while straightening them.  The clear aligners can be used with whitening gel that you can get from your dentist.  Just add a little whitening gel once a day while wearing your Invisalign aligners and watch your teeth whiten while they are straightening.

With Invisalign, you are in control

With Invislalign you are in control.  You can take your aligners out to eat, brush and floss.  You change to a new set of aligners every two weeks and watch your teeth gradually move position over time.  Slowly, invisibly over time, your teeth are straightened without discomfort, embarrassment or anyone realizing you are wearing braces.  Your dentist checks your progress at regular intervals until you achieve the beautiful smile with straight teeth you always wanted.

5 Ways to Promote Good Oral Health Habits at Work

It looks like a lot of people need to step up their oral health habits not just at home but also at work! Based on a survey  released by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and Oral-B Laboratories, a huge number of Americans are actually neglecting the state of their teeth and mouth at work. 

Specifically, the survey found out that although 75 percent of roughly one thousand respondents ate twice or more a day at work, only 14 percent of  them are actually brushing their teeth. In addition,  40 percent of the respondents considered a person’s smile as the first thing they notice in a person at work while 32 percent responded that bad breath is a co-worker’s least attractive trait. Now, the early figures of 14 percent brushing their teeth may make you think about those who rated bad breath as a no-no. It seems like a lot would be complaining about Mr. Stinky Breath at work after all. 

Most of us here at our Palm Beach Gardens dental practice are part of the 14 percent who brush our teeth even at work. And we would like to see more people doing the same thing in the office. So here’s a quick guide to promoting good oral health habits at work:

1. Have a toothbrush for office use. Having a toothbrush handy at work will certainly increase your chances of actually using it in the office.

 2. Chew sugarless gums. Chewing gums could stimulate saliva production and saliva, in turn, neutralizes acids which could cause tooth decay and cavities. After having meals and snacks in the office, consider chewing sugarless gums!

3. No toothbrush available? How about some mouthwash? Rinsing your mouth with it for at least 30 seconds will surely make the difference and get rid of the garlicky breath after lunch!

4. You might want to have some floss handy, too.

5. Lastly, schedule dental visits regularly so we can help you figure out which part of your oral health needs improvement and give out recommendations.

Get in touch with us today if you’d like to have healthier teeth and gums for an awesome smile that your coworkers will surely notice! Contact Drs. Lerner and Lemongello for an appointment and information on all dental procedures at 561-627-9000 or you can fill out this contact form. We’d love to hear from you!

 

Dental Implants. What are my options? Part 2

smile-makeover-scottsbluff

In the second part of this three part series we will discuss options to replace multiple missing teeth with dental implants.

The popularity of dental implants has increased in recent years.  This is due to their ability to restore oral health but also provide a beautiful natural smile that is permanent.   Getting to know what implant procedure is right for you can change and improve your life.

Multiple teeth

Similar to the loss of one tooth, multiple teeth can be lost due to accident, decay or periodontal disease.  Multiple tooth replacement with dental implants is an ideal way to restore dental health.  Treatment with multiple implants is a option for those in the beginning stages of  tooth loss.  As we age we face the loss of multiple teeth even with good dental care.  Multiple missing teeth can be detrimental to your health as well as how you look and feel about yourself.  Replacing missing teeth is crucial to maintaining the rest of your oral health and slowing the process of losing additional teeth.  Fortunately there are many options available to replace multiple missing teeth.  Treatment may be as simple as placing implants in the site of  some of the missing teeth and placing a permanent bridge that is cemented to the implants.  This type of treatment works well for replacing as few as three teeth or replacing all the teeth.  It provides a predictable long term result giving you the look and feel of natural teeth and a beautiful smile.

Dental implants have the highest success rate of any tooth-replacement option and a successful history spanning decades, making them the best long-term solution to replace missing teeth.  Implants can last the rest of your life when properly cared for.   This is what makes them such a good value.

Smile Makeover with Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic Dentures

Just because you wear dentures doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful smile. People with missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures tend to become less confident, have difficulty speaking properly, or have trouble eating certain foods. It is for this reason the Drs. Lerner and Lemongello, in Palm Beach Gardens, along with their highly skilled team believe that dentures still make one of the biggest contributions in replacement of missing teeth. However, even with dentures you can have the beautiful smile you always wanted.

A smile makeover with dentures is no different than a smile makeover with porcelain veneer, crowns or implants when it comes to designing a smile. They are made of artificial teeth attached onto a plastic base, and sometimes supported by a metal framework fitted into the patient’s mouth but that doesn’t mean they should look fake.

That is why you want to choose a dentist that understands how to create beautiful smiles. At Dr’s Lerner and Lemongello’s office, creating a beautiful smile with dentures takes time. Unlike a “denture center” where one size denture fits all, a complete examination is performed to evaluate your needs. A smile analysis is completed to determine what type; size, shape and color teeth are best suited for your face and facial features creating the most natural, beautiful smile for you. The teeth are then set up in a wax denture to preview what your new teeth will look like before they are finished. Your speech is checked along with how the teeth bite together ensuring proper function and comfort. It is at this time that any changes needed are made. Once everything has been checked and you are happy the denture is finished and custom fitted to provide the best possible result.

At the office of Drs. Lerner and Lemongello, we work with only the highest skilled technicians who use the best materials available made in the USA to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking dentures. If you require new cosmetic dentures or would like to stabilize loose dentures with implants, call our office in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida to schedule a consultation today.

Rest assured the dental team at Drs. Lerner and Lemongello’s office is available to ensure your comfort and safety and are available to answer any of your concerns. So whether it is for a dental check up, a simple tooth restoration, a smile makeover, dental implants, or complete mouth restorations our team is ready to help you achieve the smile you deserve and the dental heath you want.

DSF9122-200x300Ask yourself this question: What is your best feature?

Why not?  How would a great smile make you feel?  How would it make you feel about yourself? How would a beautiful smile change your life?

Looking good and feeling good about yourself doesn’t have to be hard work.  You don’t have to spend hours at the gym or count calories to watch your weight.  There is no product, diet or training program that will increase your confidence in yourself in the same way a healthy and attractive smile will.

Cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you have always wanted.  A beautiful smile will change your life. If you are looking to enhance your smile, there are a wide variety of easy dental treatments available to meet your needs and your budget.  These range from quick, basic treatments like tooth whitening to more sophisticated treatments such as porcelain veneers that can transform your smile into the smile of your dreams in as little as 2 visits.
