Many times we get calls from patients who have a crown that came out or a broken tooth during the holidays. There is a quick fix. Most drug stores have a product that is called "Dental Temporary" . A putty-like material that can be pushed into a broken tooth or crown to get you by until you can seek proper dental care. While not ideal, it's better than walking around with a hole in your tooth.
Remember, if you have any dental emergencies during the holidays, my cell phone number is on our office answering machine.
Have a safe and healthy holiday season!!
Did you know that you can straighten your teeth "Invisably". Invisalign is a orthodontic treatment method that uses clear aligners (transparent plastic that snaps over your teeth) to straighten you teeth comfortably without the usual "braces" . A series of aligners are made to specific guidelines for each patient. Simply snap them in and wear them throughout the day. Many patients are amazed by how fast they work and how comfortably they feel.
In many cases, the treatment time is shortened. The beauty of Invisalign is that you can take the aligners out to eat and brush your teeth, so there are no diet restrictions!
Please feel free to call us with all questions you may have regarding your treatment options.
