A straight, white smile is the perfect accessory for any outfit. If you are looking for a convenient and effective way to straighten your teeth, look no further than Invisalign and start to enjoy the following advantages over traditional metal braces:
Invisalign Is Versatile
Whether you have issues with crowded teeth or you struggle with a crossbite, Invisalign can help. This effective teeth-straightening option can conquer a wide array of orthodontic problems that prevent you from having the beautiful, straight smile that you deserve. Talk to your dentist if you have issues with spacing, an overbite, or an underbite to see how well Invisalign can work for you.
The Aligners Can Be Removed
Unlike braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat and drink. You can also take out Invisalign when you brush your teeth or floss, which means you can maintain a thorough oral hygiene routine even during your treatment period. Instead of dealing with pieces of food stuck in your braces, you can remove the aligners, eat, brush your teeth, and put them back in your mouth without any fuss.
It’s Practically Invisible
One of the biggest benefits of choosing Invisalign over another teeth-straightening option is its appearance. You do not have to suffer through months of wearing clunky, unattractive metal braces to get the smile you want. With Invisalign, you can wear your clear plastic aligners without anyone else knowing about them. This aesthetic appeal makes Invisalign perfect for teenagers and working professionals.

The gums protect sensitive tooth roots. If the gums recede, this can lead to serious issues with sensitivity to hot and cold and even cavities in the roots.
The position of the teeth, trauma, heredity, and periodontal disease can all cause gum recession. If your gums are starting to recede, it is very important to see a dentist to get the treatment you need. Learn more about this condition and its treatment by watching this video.

Fast action could save your tooth during a dental emergency. You should immediately schedule an appointment with your dentist, and use the following tips to handle a dental emergency until you can see a professional:
A Broken Tooth
When you chip or break a tooth, it is important to hold on to all of the pieces. Gently rinse your mouth with warm water and feel for additional pieces of the tooth. If you are bleeding, place some gauze over the affected area. You can prevent swelling by placing an ice pack or a cool compress against your cheek near the broken tooth. Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can to get the oral care that you need.
A Lost Tooth
If your tooth falls out completely, pick it up by the crown and gently rinse it off. You may try carefully placing the tooth back in its socket, if possible. If replacing the tooth is too painful, put the tooth into either a cup of milk or a cup of water with a pinch of salt until you can make an appointment with your dentist. The sooner you can see your oral health professional, the better chance you have of saving the tooth.
If not properly cared for, infections in the mouth can spread quickly. An abscess is an infection near a tooth root that causes extreme pain. Without the proper dental care, this infection could even spread to other parts of the body. Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as you possibly can. Rinse your mouth with some salt water throughout the day to minimize pain and try to prevent the infection from spreading.

If you do not like your smile, you may tend to shy away from social interactions. Discoloration, chipped teeth, and other signs of damage can make it difficult to show off a smile with pride. Luckily, Lumineers make it easier than ever to improve the look of your smile and boost your confidence!
Lumineers are similar to traditional veneers but are less invasive and easier to apply. During your first dental visit, your dentist will take an impression of your upper teeth and lower teeth. This impression will be sent to a lab and used to create custom Lumineers. A couple of weeks later, you can return to the office to try on the Lumineers. If they fit well, your dentist will bond them to your teeth.
Get more facts about Lumineers from Steven A. Corben, D.M.D., and his dedicated dental staff. Contact us at (888) 707-1084 to get answers to dental questions and discover more about our services available to residents of Danvers, Salem, and the North Shore.

Brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. Oral hygiene can seem like a chore at times, but it only takes a little bit of dedication to prevent painful and annoying dental concerns in the future. Working with your dentist to keep a healthy smile will offer many benefits, including:
Protecting Your Heart Health
Did you know that oral health is linked to heart health? If you maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly, you will lower your chance of developing gum disease. This disease causes inflammation that has been shown to increase the risk of developing cardiovascular complications, including blood vessel blockages, strokes, and heart disease.
Having More Confidence
When you are happy with your smile, you want to show it off! On the other hand, you may try to shield your teeth at all times when you are dissatisfied with your smile. Your dentist can help you straighten, whiten, and improve the health of your teeth, resulting in a smile that will make you feel proud. The more you smile, the more confident you will appear.
Making a Better Impression
It is normal for people to base their first impressions partly on appearance. That is why it is important to feel confident in your appearance when meeting new people. When you have a healthy smile, the people you meet take notice. A healthy and attractive smile leaves a much better impression than a crooked, discolored, or otherwise flawed smile.
Keeping Your Teeth for Life
Your teeth will not last if you do not care for them! Learning how to take proper care of your teeth is important for protecting them from damage that can lead to tooth loss. A healthy smile will stick around well into your later years, while an unhealthy one can force you to turn to dentures or dental implants as you get older.
