Commonly Asked Questions From Our Patients
Dental implants are small posts that Dr. Sommer can insert into your jaw where you have missing teeth. They will actually fuse with your jawbone and become a sturdy base for anchoring replacement teeth. You can replace a single missing tooth or a full mouth of teeth using implants, plus they will help keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
Rather than using metal hardware that can detract from your smile, Invisalign treatment involves clear plastic teeth aligners that fit securely over your teeth. They will gently move your teeth into their proper positions in months – not years like standard braces can take. As a bonus, since the aligners are made of transparent material, other people will hardly notice them, if at all.
A person’s oral health is a reflection of their total body health. It’s important to keep up with regular dental cleanings and exams so that our team can catch and treat small oral problems before they worsen. Early treatment can help you avoid dental emergencies and the need for more extensive treatment later on. Plus, you’ll enjoy the confidence that having an attractive smile gives you.
