Why Dental Implants Are the Best Replacements for Lost Teeth

When it comes to most forms of restorative and prosthetic dental work, the best options are often those that most closely mimic your healthy, natural tooth structure. The goal isn’t just to address a problem, but to do so in a way that preserves or improves the overall function and appearance of your smile. If you’ve lost one or more teeth, then that realism is even more important, as the loss can have a dramatic effect on several different aspects of your oral health. At our Newhall, CA, dental office, we often recommend dental implants as the best replacements for lost teeth due their unique ability to mimic the complete structures of your teeth – including their roots.

How to Straighten Your Smile without Wearing Braces

Crooked teeth are too important to ignore. Not only can they dramatically affect your smile’s appearance, but they can also make things like biting and chewing more difficult, and limit your ability to keep your teeth clean. Most people with crooked teeth realize this, but for many of them, the thought of having to wear traditional braces can make them hesitate to address them. At our Newhall, CA, dentist’s office, we offer an alternative to braces that makes choosing to straighten your teeth much easier. With Invisalign®, we can create a treatment plan to correct the misalignment of your teeth using a series of clear aligners rather than relying on traditional, bracket-and-wire style braces. (more…)

3 Things Your Smile Shouldn’t Face Alone

When you consistently keep your smile healthy, you have a much smaller chance of experiencing potentially serious issues. For example, simply brushing your teeth twice and flossing at least once every day stops the buildup of plaque that heightens your risks of tooth decay, gum disease, and even chronic bad breath. However, that doesn’t mean good hygiene is the end-all of caring for your smile. The truth is, you’re not guaranteed a healthy smile if you ignore your oral health when you’re not at the bathroom sink. At our Newhall, CA, dentist’s office, we help ensure that your smile never has to face any challenge alone, whether it’s maintaining your healthy smile or dealing with a specific cosmetic or restorative issue.
