When I was a little girl, my most prominent trait was my mouth full of crooked, missing, and cavity-filled teeth. Though I was a happy child, so smiling from ear to ear was something I did quite often, though I was very self conscious of my teeth. When I was about 12 years old, my parents finally mustered up enough money to allow for my teeth to finally be fixed. It was then that we decided the rest of my adolescent life would be dedicated to fixing my teeth. Years of drilling, pulling, cleaning, appointments, and being called a ‘brace-face’ would eventually pay off. Finally by the age of fifteen, my teeth had been fixed, and my life had been drastically different than it would be if I was still self conscious about my teeth. I believe that having a beautiful smile is important for a lot of people, adolescents especially, to have confidence
Many adults are turning to braces to correct malocclusions and other issues they did not correct during their childhood. A confident and attractive smile is a big help in boosting self-confidence and making a good impression on others. However, wearing metal or even ceramic braces may not be a good option for adults who face the public, are looking for a job or are sensitive about their appearance. Fortunately, there is a viable answer. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that is virtually invisible for crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, under bite and overbite as well as serious malocclusions.

This actually refers to the dental practice of inserting and removing various types of dental braces. Your orthodontist can help to straighten the misaligned teeth and improve your biting by correcting the way your teeth come together. They normally use braces and dental aligners to
Invisalign is a series of plastic aligners designed to look like a mouth guard that is invisible. You progress through a set of aligners by swapping them out every two weeks or so on your own since they are completely removable. This means you can eat the foods you want by taking them out during mealtime. Invisalign will be the most costly option, and work best on adults since the size of their mouth is no longer
The methacrylate based, light cured, unfilled resin is perfect for filling small voids in the restoration. It gives the restoration a great seal which prevents any future leakage or failure. Before placing Permaseal, the restoration must be etched using the same phosphoric acid used earlier. After placing a thin layer, it is polymerized using the curing light and finally polished. The other two occlusal preps were similarly restored. Because all 3 preps had enough normal dentin thickness over the pulp tissue, the need for a liner or a base was not necessary in any of the restorations.

This was not always the case in the past. Even though teeth were being studied since ancient Egyptian times it wasn’t until the 18th century that dentistry was considered a real science. For thousands of years people who worked on teeth were considered physicians as they dealt with body related problems. In this paper we will touch on the major turning points that lead to what modern dentistry is today. From diagnosing decay due to tooth-worms, to extractions being the solution to tooth pain, to Paul Revere not only saving the public from the British, but also tooth decay, to advanced
Dental implants are a long term replacement of teeth that are positioned in the jawbone beneath the gums. “They are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth and act as an anchor for a replacement tooth, crown, or a set of replacement teeth” (Dominguez). Since these are implanted directly to the jawbone, the gum will need to heal first and when the post is connected to the original implant, that is when the artificial tooth will be mounted. The convenience of this technology is that the adjacent teeth do not need to be prepped or dealt with when replacing the missing teeth. When the implants are properly maintained, they can typically last a lifetime and it is recommended to always take better care of the tooth. Dental implant is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is used to replace missing teeth for a more natural look and feel (Kotrzewski). When there is missing teeth, chewing ability is lost; not choosing to replace missing teeth can cause other teeth to be lost as well.
