Adults Have Many Options Today to Get Straighter Teeth

My crooked teeth always bothered me, but I didn't want to wear typical metal braces for years as an adult. I thought that was my only option until I brought up the subject one day to my dentist. He told me that there were so many more options today that I should consider. I made an appointment with an orthodontist to discuss my options, and he said that I was a great candidate for invisible teeth aligners. He said that other people would not even notice them in my mouth, and that I likely only needed to wear them for a year. I was so happy I made that first appointment, because I now have straight teeth and am so happy with my smile. I created this blog to help other adults realize they have many discreet teeth-straightening options today. No should live with a smile they don't love!

Improve Dental Implant Success: 3 Foods To Help Build Stronger Bones

Because a dental implant is implanted into your existing jawbone, it is important that you take the steps to keep your bones healthy and strong. If your bones are fragile, possibly from osteoporosis, your dental implant could fail. In some cases, if your jawbone lacks the adequate density, the dental implant procedure will not be done – at least not at first.
