San Francisco Cosmetic Dentist Gives Thanks for Five Crucial Dentistry Advancements
Dr. Greg Larson, a San Francisco cosmetic dentist, is thankful for five important dentistry advancements that improve patients' smiles and better their lives.
Dentists replace missing teeth with dental implants. (http://www.larsondentistry.com/
Sealants are generally used for children, though adults can also benefit from sealants. Dental sealants are made from clear plastic, and dentists bond the material to healthy premolars and molars. Sealants effectively seal the tooth from gathering food particles, plaque and bacteria. Patients can brush easily once the deep grooves on these back teeth are smooth and flat.
Neuromuscular dentistry deals with the ideal position for the temporomandibular joint. The TMJ is used when humans yawn, eat and talk. A misaligned TMJ can cause headaches, face and neck pain, tender facial muscles, tinnitus and clicking jaws. Neuromuscular dentists help determine the best position for the TMJ, and they use orthotics to guide the TMJ to its desired position. Alignment should reduce any associated TMJ pain.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures take smiles to the next level. Larson offers San Francisco Invisalign, tooth whitening, laser gum contouring and veneers to correct alignment, discoloration, chips, gaps and gummy smiles. Doctors combine artistry, dental experience and technology to create healthy smiles that are truly drool-worthy.
Dental anxiety and dental phobias are common deterrents for people visiting the dentist. Many modern dentists, including Larson, practice pain free dentistry with dental sedation. Conscious sedation, IV sedation and nitrous oxide are commonly used. Dentists enjoy increasing their patients' comfort and lessening their anxieties with sedation options.
Larson reminds patients to maintain superb oral hygiene throughout their indulgent holiday feasts. Happy Thanksgiving!
