Invisalign is a braceless or "invisable" orthodontic treatment.
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Invisalign addresses a number of common alignment issues, including spaces between teeth, overlap, and crooked or crowded teeth.
However, did you know that correcting these common smile issues could improve the overall health of your smile? Uneven teeth provide a number of places for bacteria to hide and stray food particles to become lodged. As a result, you can experience an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease, which threatens the health and beauty of your smile. After correcting your smile with Invisalign, flossing and brushing will be easier, allowing you to remove stray food particles and bacteria with ease. Invisalign not only improves the appearance of your smile, but your dental heath as well. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Jaksha to see if Invisalign is right for your smile.
When you are faced with a missing tooth, there are a few options you can consider to restore your smile. Modern dental prosthetics offers a variety of viable solutions for people, regardless of their age and budget. The many options available include:
A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are totally secure and no other teeth need to be treated to replace the missing tooth. A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
Bridges are commonly used because they span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Jaksha to discuss which tooth replacement option would be right for you.

Tooth Whitening is a common cosmetic procedure that provides effective results to brighten stained or dull teeth. Dr. Jaksha has found that custom whitening trays provide longer lasting results, unlike other costlier, quicker techniques that prove only temporary. Tooth whitening may not be an appropriate treatment for all stains. If you would like to discuss whether tooth whitening is the right option for you, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Jaksha to discuss what would be best for your smile.
