This device is a form of dental braces to adjust and align teeth. It is an alternative solution for people who prefer to straighten their teeth undetected. Invisalign contains no metal, are custom-made for your teeth, and nearly invisible.
Every two weeks you will receive a tray gradually repositioning your teeth into place. It works like a metal dental brace fixing and correcting gaps and crowded teeth but without the uncomfortable and painful irritation from the brackets of the wire braces.
The retainer is also removable so you can clean your teeth and eat normally as you would without braces. Consult your dentist first for proper application and treatment.
Dental implant surgery is a procedure where the root of your tooth is replaced by metal and your teeth are replaced by an artificial one that functions and appears like a real tooth.
It can be an alternative to dentures that don’t fit properly or tooth replacements for gaps that will allow dentures or bridgeworks to be applied. Before the surgery, you will undergo a thorough dental checkup, a review of any medical conditions or medications you are currently taking, and planning your treatment. Dental implant is done in stages to allow healing time between procedures. The procedures are:
- Removal of the damaged tooth
- Grafting or preparing the jawbone (when required)
- Dental implant placement
- Healing time that allows the bones to grow
- Abutment placement
- Artificial tooth placement
The procedure may take months to complete depending on how fast you heal after each process. you may experience swelling of your gums or face, your skin and gums may also bruise, the implant site may become painful and minor bleeding. But if you follow your instructions from your dentist and the implant fused with your bones properly, you will have successful results.
