Advances in Modern Dentistry
The only constant in the medical world is change, and the same goes for dentistry. There are always new techniques and technologies evolving to make dental procedures quicker, more comfortable, and more effective for patients.
With so many options available to patients to help replace, repair, and restore their teeth, a beautiful smile is within the reach of all patients, no matter the current state of your oral health. Your dentist in Jonesboro, AR has some examples of what modern dentistry has to offer.
One of the greatest advances – and probably the most exciting – is dental implants. For patients missing one or more of their teeth, dental implants are a dream come true because they replace both your tooth and your root, which protects the integrity of your bone and your natural teeth. No other tooth replacement option can offer those benefits.
A dental implant closely mimics your natural tooth and you’re able to care for an implant just like your existing teeth. It naturally complements your smile, and it’s durable enough to potentially last a lifetime with the proper care. You’ll forget you were ever missing a tooth when you choose to restore your teeth with a dental implant.
Invisalign allows patients to straighten crooked teeth by using clear plastic aligners rather than traditional metal braces. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and even that important business meeting. Aligners are worn 20 to 22 hours per day and changed every two weeks. Most Invisalign cases can be completed in 12 to 18 months and the final result is beautifully straightened teeth and smile that you love sharing with the world!
These are only a few examples of what modern dentistry has to offer. Dr. Lauren Harmon and Dr. Brett Burris would love to discuss your options for care and treatment with you.
