Your Ocoee FL Dentist
Most people consider dental visits an afterthought or an unpleasant experience that they can postpone as much as they feel necessary. For many, dental visits only become necessary either when they have a dental emergency or in situations where they have been referred to a dentist as a result of pain in the teeth. The truth, though, is that regular dental visits are imperative in ensuring proper oral health. At Classic Smiles, we offer various dental procedures to keep your oral health in good condition.
Most people follow the general oral health recommendations that encourage them to brush their teeth at least twice daily or after every meal, and to floss at least once every day. However, even with such regular cleanings, food and debris are still likely to get stuck in difficult-to-reach areas.
This is where the dentists come in; they will conduct a thorough cleaning of your teeth and mouth, removing any lingering food or debris, and getting rid of the bacteria whose accumulation might end up causing tooth decay.
After you have had years of yellowing on your teeth, you can choose teeth whitening to make your teeth look whiter and more appealing. We perform in-office whitening where we place a whitening gel on the teeth, allowing it to act on the stains and make the teeth look whiter. Our dentist may also provide take-home teeth whitening trays that are custom-made for you. These trays come with a whitening solution or gel that you place in the tray before putting the piece in the mouth.
After an initial consultation, we come up with a treatment plan and design your unique removable, clear aligners. Our 3D computer imaging aids with the creation of the treatment plan and the aligners. Each set of your Invisalign clear aligners has to be put on for about two weeks before you switch to another set. You only remove the aligners when cleaning the mouth, drinking, eating, or cleaning them. With time, as you move on with each aligner, you find that the misaligned teeth are moving slowly to the target position. Within a span of nine to 15 months, you are able to complete your alignment treatment.
Whenever you find yourself with missing teeth, it is imperative you replace them in order to maintain proper oral health. Without teeth, you lose chewing ability, other teeth begin shifting to the empty space, you start losing more teeth, and your face becomes sunken. Dental implants offer a foundation for missing teeth. They provide you with artificial teeth that look natural and feel and function like the original teeth you lost.
Our dentist places small posts of the implants to serve as the replacement root of the lost or missing tooth. The dentist places the post into the jawbone where it fuses and bonds with the bone. After it has fused, you get your artificial tooth fitted over the abutment. Dental implants can last decades or even a lifetime with proper care.
