The school year keeps families busy. Between school, homework, sports, and other activities, finding time for dental appointments can be difficult. But, with the end of the school year just around the corner, family dentists in Boaz at Wall Street Dentistry want to help you kick off summer with a healthy, beautiful smile.
A great smile starts with good oral hygiene
Remember that the American Dental Association recommends that each of us brush our teeth daily, floss once per day, and see the dentist once every six months for a check-up that should include a dental cleaning and an examination. Dr. Jonathan Renfroe at Wall Street Dentistry suggests you take some steps to improve your dental hygiene regimen at home. It starts by purchasing an electric toothbrush, which is easier to use and can clean teeth more effectively than a manual toothbrush. Change the head on your electric toothbrush every four mouths. Dr. Renfroe also advises purchasing preloading flosser sticks to help make flossing an easier habit while on the go. Also, add an alcohol-free oral rinse to your daily dental routine. As for those dental check-ups, go ahead and make both appointments for the year, when improving your oral health still is fresh in your mind.
Want a better-looking smile? Brighten your teeth
Whitening your teeth by a few shades can make a dramatic difference in the way your smile looks. Consider receiving a professional whitening treatment from the cosmetic dentists in Boaz at Wall Street Dentistry. We can complete this procedure in less than an hour, and the results are visible right away. Our whitening procedures are administered in our office under the supervision of Dr. Renfroe, making sure to protect your oral health. Many store-bought whitening kits are known to cause enhanced sensitivity in teeth, and no over-the-counter whitening treatment or product such as a toothpaste or rinse will yield similar results to our professional whitening treatments, which use a higher concentration of the whitening agent that is not available to consumers, making for more dazzling results that last longer.
Straightening teeth improves the form and function of your smile
When your teeth are straight and well aligned, they are easier to keep clean, and you also are less vulnerable to alignment problems with your bite and jaw. Wall Street Dentistry can straighten teeth with braces, but Dr. Renfroe also is a practitioner of functional orthodontics. This refers to the school of thought that can use orthodontic treatment to guide the growth of the face and jaws, or address issues with the airway such as the case with obstructive sleep apnea. When detected at an early age, children with issues such as crowding, bite misalignment, mouth breathing, and even aesthetic flaws can be corrected through a course of functional orthodontic therapy.
Veneers and implants can transform your smile
Beautiful materials produce beautiful results in the science of dentistry. Veneers are made of very thin dental porcelain, a stain-resistant, and translucent material, and can be placed across the front of teeth to resolve aesthetic issues such as chips, cracks, unevenly sized teeth, or an undesirable gap between teeth. Veneers also can be used to whiten teeth that do not respond to dental whitening procedures.
If you have lost permanent teeth, replacing them with dental implants is the best option for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Implants look and feel more like natural teeth than any other tooth replacement available. A dental implant also is the only type of tooth replacement that is considered virtually permanent and replaces the root of the lost tooth, helping to safeguard against the eventual deterioration of supporting bone structure.
Wall Street Dentistry is adept at working with veneers, as well as implant dentistry, a specialized procedure that actually qualifies as oral surgery because the implant screw itself is inserted into the jawbone. For individuals living with more significant tooth loss, implants also can be used as anchors to support dentures. We actually plan out every implant installation procedure, using a state-of-the-art three-dimensional conebeam imaging laser to ensure the implant screw is placed as accurately as possible, which also helps minimize healing time.
