We know Christmas is still a month away, but it's time to start thinking shopping! The gift of health is the best way to show someone you care. A Sonicare toothbrush is one of the best investments you can make for your oral health. We have several options from the base model to the luxury model. A waterpik is also an excellent investment for everyone. They are especially great for orthodontic and periodontal patients. We also carry models for kids!
Love your hygienist? Love that new same day crown? Can't say enough about those supermodels at the front desk? Check out our Facebook page or Google Page and leave us a review!
Just a reminder Dr. Bedi, our orthodontist, is here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you know anyone in need of orthodontic services please send them our way. For any patient that you refer who commits to treatment, we will say thanks to you with a $50 gas card!!
As many of you know we now have an orthodontist in our office on Tuesday & Wednesday. Dr. Bedi has been a wonderful asset to our office, and many of our patients have taken advantage of the convenience of having their dental team in one building. Most people associate orthdontics with children and teens. However we are finding that more and more adults desire orthodontics but may have thought they were too old for it, or hesitant because of the look of traditional braces. The good news is you are not too old! The great news is we offer Invisilign as an option for almost all teens & adults!
Invisilign is a series of custom made, clear plastic aligners. They are virtually invisible, and snug fitting. Each aligner makes a slight correction. Patients wear the aligners for 22 hours a day (removed only for eating, brushing and flossing). They change to the next aligner in the series every week or two. You will see us about every 6 weeks for Dr. Bedi to evaluate your progress and make any needed corrections.
There are many advantages to Invisilign in addition to cosmetics. You take them out to clean your mouth! Homecare is much more difficult with wires and brackets. You take them out to eat! Eating with traditional braces can be embarassing with food catching. They are safer with sports! With invisilign aligners, you don't have to worry about injuries from the wires or brackets poking and cutting your tissue. If you need to wear a mouthguard, simply take them out and insert mouthguard. Have a special event like wedding or graduation pictures coming up? Simply take the aligners out!
One more important note is that correcting the alignment of your teeth is not just for cosmetics. Making your teeth properly fit together and function better can help with TMJ pain, grinding & clenching as well as periodontal issues.
Also we are now able to digitally scan your mouth instead of taking impressions! This is great news to those patients that are hesitant to have treatment done due to their gag reflex.
So, who qualifies?

The disadvantage to Invisilign is the same as the advantage... they are removeable. In order for these to work they MUST be worn regularly. However they are very comfortable, esthetically pleasing, and WORTH IT.
