If you have crooked, misaligned, overlapping or overcrowded teeth, your dentist will recommend braces, but he or she has to examine your teeth and request for an X-ray first. This is important in identifying the braces that will best treat you and do so quickly. Here is everything you need to know about braces:
Your dentist may inform you that there are different types of braces, which may differ in how they look, how they work, how they are placed on your teeth and their price.
Your mouth and its parts (lips, tongue and teeth) form an essential part of your body. They make it possible to speak, smile, eat, drink and laugh. If you have an ailment, especially in your teeth or tongue, it might be difficult for you to smile, laugh, speak, eat or drink. It might also make you uncomfortable, especially if your mouth is painful or severely swollen. That is why it is always recommended to take care of your teeth.
Losing even a single tooth can have detrimental effects on how you eat, smile or even speak. Losing teeth has an even bigger physiological and psychological impact. Thankfully, there are multiple solutions available for missing teeth. Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. They help restore the appearance and function of your smile. Their design involves a plastic or metal plate with prosthetic teeth attached to it. The prosthetic teeth are created to mimic your existing teeth in terms of colour, size and shape.
Dental implant surgery involves the installation of synthetic tooth roots that anchor the replacement tooth. Usually, the dental implants are installed surgically into the jawbone, and the procedure is extremely safe. However, there are certain things you need to do after surgery to ensure you heal quickly and avoid further complications. This piece will share some of these guidelines, so be sure to follow them along with those your dental expert will provide.
