No need to hide that smile with invisible braces

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Nobody wants to be told that they need to wear braces. Teenagers and adults who have crooked teeth often fear that they will have to endure the humiliation of wearing metal braces in order to straighten their pearly whites. While this was often the case and a rite of passage for teenagers in the past, today people no longer have to wear unsightly metal braces to fix crooked teeth thanks to advances in modern dentistry.

Called “Invisalign,” the new dental procedure is essentially “invisible braces.” The Invisalign process uses a series of clear plastic and removable “aligners” to gently straighten teeth and ensure they are properly positioned in the mouth. This is a safe, effective and gentle way to fix the problem of crooked teeth. Gone are the days of dentists tightening or winding braces tighter and tighter. Best of all, the Invisalign system is clear and undetectable in a person’s mouth. Family and friends will not be able to see that a person is wearing the teeth aligners. Individuals wearing Invisalign can continue to smile and laugh with confidence knowing that their braces are virtually undetectable to the eye.

People who fear having braces because they will be uncomfortable or ugly need fear no more. Invisalign offers a positive alternative to traditional metal braces – one that straightens teeth while allowing people to retain their dignity and appearance.

Patients at Smiles On Seven Dental Centre in Markham, Ontario are encouraged to ask questions and talk to the dentists on staff about the benefits of the Invisalign system and how it can keep their teeth straight. The staff at Smiles On Seven Dental Centre are happy to show clients the Invisalign system and procedure used in their office. New customers are welcome and consultations are free of charge.

Regular check-ups prevent long-term problems with teeth

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Life is busy and people are on the go constantly. In today’s hustle and bustle, many adults neglect to get their teeth checked on a regular basis. Many people think that they don`t have time to go to the dentist. Even parents who ensure their children have their teeth checked regularly often fail to get their own teeth examined by a professional dentist. This neglect can lead to serious problems over the long-term. Teeth that are not cared for properly or checked by a dentist on a regular basis can develop major problems and cause discomfort and pain.

Smiles On Seven Dental Centre in Markham, Ontario knows the importance of regular check-ups for children and adults. Gum disease, tooth decay and other painful ailments are all treatable if caught early enough.

Regular exams, X-rays and cleanings by qualified dentists help to keep teeth in the best condition possible and prevent long-term problems. Over time, and as people age, teeth weaken and protective enamel breaks down. This makes it even more important for people to get their teeth regularly checked by a dentist.

Busy adults who think they don’t have time to visit the dentist are wrong. Getting to the dentist on a regular basis is important for everyone’s long-term health – children and adults.
