Common Myths of Gum Disease # 2

I don't have cavities so I can't have gum disease
Being cavity-free doesnít ensure you are in the clear where gum disease is concerned. Thatís because gum disease is painless and many people have no idea they have it. Gums that bleed easily or are red, swollen or tender is a sign of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease and the only stage that is reversible. When caught early gingivitis can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at the dental office, followed by daily brushing and flossing.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 1

Gum disease is not that common
On the contrary, gum disease is extremely common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of adults age 30 and older suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Plaque that is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.

Invisalign Dentist

A Fast, Virtually Invisible Orthodontic Option
 Clear Dental Braces Dentistry Carmi IL

With Invisalign™ invisible aligners, you can have straight teeth in only 9 - 15 months. Dr. Roser is very pleased to offer you orthodontics that correct overcrowding, underbite, crossbite, overbite, or gapped teeth in just months!

This is a system that uses 3-D computer imaging to present an entire treatment plan. It starts with the position of your actual teeth and projects to the finished alignment of your new smile. A series of clear, thermoplastic aligners are made to fit your teeth exactly. They are similar to whitening trays. The first set will begin to gently move your teeth toward the new position. About two weeks later, you wear the next set of aligners and continue to make progress by replacing the aligners every two weeks for about a year. Total treatment time may vary depending on your needs and goals. You only come into our office to be evaluated every one to two months.

Consider the Advantages

Invisible Dental Braces  Dentistry Carmi ILThere are definite advantages in having the Invisalign system. Since they are invisible, there are no worries about changes in your appearance. Someone would have to look very closely to know you are straightening your teeth. This lets you keep your confidence when speaking and smiling while you are in treatment.

These invisible aligners are also very comfortable. There are no braces with wires that need adjusting and no headgear to wear. This means less time at the dental office. You will not have any mouth irritation or discomfort. There are no food or drink restrictions, as aligners are easily removed for eating and cleaning. Your teeth will stay clean throughout active treatment without braces to interfere with brushing and flossing.

If you suffer from bad headaches or pain in your jaws, shoulders, or neck, you may have a dental malocclusion. This means that your bite or your upper and lower dental arches do not come together or rest in the proper position. This puts strain on the adjoining muscles, resulting in pain you may have become accustomed to. We have techniques to return your dental arches to their proper position so you can have a better quality of life. Let us tell you what we can do to alleviate your chronic pain.
