Some people associate the term “cosmetic dentistry” with vanity and high expense, instead of realizing that the deterioration of healthy looking teeth can be a symptom of a more serious oral health issue. Discolored, misaligned, discolored teeth are not necessarily signs of aging or simply a reason not to smile in public. In addition to achieving a bright new smile, keep reading to learn more about some of the health benefits of cosmetic dentistry at our Lighthouse Point office.
Of all the options available from our cosmetic dentist in Lighthouse Point to replace missing teeth, dental implants offer a strong, long-lasting solution over dentures or bridges. Patients with dentures are prohibited from eating certain types of foods, and dental bridges can sometimes erode adjacent teeth over time. In addition, both options tend to alter your facial appearance, which can further contribute to a person being more self-conscious about speaking or smiling in public.
A dental implant, on the other hand, is like having a brand new tooth with all the functionality of natural teeth. Dental implants are attached to your natural jaw bone, are easy to clean, AND there are no restrictions about what you can eat. Beyond getting a smile you are happy to flash in public again, replacing missing or broken teeth with dental implants from Florida Smiles Dental helps to restore the pleasure of eating as well as the ability to properly nourish the rest of the body.
The body is interconnected and we often see patients with misaligned teeth that result in referred pain causing persistent headaches. When the bite of a mouth is out of alignment, certain pressure is imposed on gums and nerves. Exploring the options for realigning the natural bite of the mouth can go a long way in preventing further daily aggravation and pain.
At Florida Smiles in Lighthouse Point, Invisalign is the preferred method because the patented system offers the most discreet method of straightening teeth while providing the most flexible options for eating and good dental hygiene. Unlike braces, which restrict food options and often uncomfortably scrape the inside of your mouth, Invisalign uses removable liners that slide over the natural teeth; this means patients can simply remove the liners to eat, brush, and floss. Another advantage of Invisalign is the reduced number of visits to the dentist because the prescribed aligners don’t require the ongoing adjustments needed with metal braces.
According to our cosmetic dentist in Lighthouse Point, periodontal (gum) disease can be associated with your misaligned, chipped, or otherwise unhealthy teeth. When there are noticeable signs of illness in teeth, the gums and roots are likewise unwell. In addition, when your teeth are cramped and misaligned in your mouth, it can be challenging to access between the spaces in order to properly manage and maintain optimal gum health. At Florida Smiles Dental, our cosmetic team helps you improve the integrity of your natural smile and bite with the added benefit to your overall health of helping you avoid gum disease.
