Six Month Smiles

Straight Teeth in Six Months or Less

Adult cosmetic braces can help you develop an attractive smile, rapidly and comfortably. If your teeth have large spaces, or are crowded and overlapped, Six Month Smiles™, in most cases, can work a correction in six months or less. This is done by gradually moving the teeth that are noticeable in your smile to a more preferred position. Not only can this be achieved in a short amount of time, it's also much more comfortable than conventional metal braces. And you can barely see them because clear or white-colored bands are used.
We also offer an oral appliance known as the Inman Aligner™. This unit is comparable to a retainer that is effortlessly removable and lets you to eat and drink whatever you wish during treatment, and brushing and flossing are no problem! With this inexpensive alternative, it is feasible to straighten the teeth in the front of your mouth in three months or less!

Mini Dental Implants

New Breakthrough Provides a Solution for Loose, Slipping Dentures

Has reduced bone density blocked you from obtaining the implants you really wanted? Are you exasperated with dentures that shift, slide, or wander, and you would prefer the strength and stability of implants if they were possible? If so, you will be excited to learn about the relatively recent breakthrough known as mini implants. Mini implants firmly anchor your dentures, abolishing slippage and trapped food. They can also be employed to replace one missing tooth, can be done in a single visit, and are essentially painless. In fact, you can look forward to eating regular foods the same day you obtain them. They can often be located where regular implants cannot, so it is feasible for you to receive the benefits of mini implants even if you are not a candidate for regular implants.

Regular Dental Hygiene Visits

The Importance of Hygiene Visits

An important motivation to visit your dentist should be to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. Plaque and tartar accumulate on teeth over time, wreaking havoc. Plaque is sticky. But normally, regular brushing can eradicate the bulk of it. The concern is for leftover plaque, which solidifies into tartar. This falls outside the scope of your standard toothbrush and floss in terms of removal. Tartar amasses below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth, triggering the growth of bacteria that produce gum disease. Modern research indicates a definite link between untreated gum disease and other life-threatening conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. If you don't remove plaque, you're taking a serious risk with your continued well-being. Having your teeth cleaned routinely is one of the easiest things you can do to stay healthy!
