Has your dentist recommended that your child undergo orthodontic treatment? This video explains why you should consider Invisalign.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that corrects malocclusions without braces. Instead, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth. Teens in particular enjoy Invisalign treatment because it eliminates the attention they would typically draw with metal braces. In addition, Invisalign aligners allow teens to maintain normal extracurricular activities, such as playing instruments or participating in sports. Parents like Invisalign because it can produce the same excellent results as traditional braces. In addition, Invisalign provides teens with the opportunity to brush and eat as they would without orthodontic obstructions.
Is your child a candidate for Invisalign? To find out, call Dental Care of Stamford at (203) 883-4464 to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist in Stamford.

A dental emergency can unexpectedly derail your day. When you know how to handle it, though, you and your dentist can quickly get your schedule back on track. It’s important to remember that no matter how minor the emergency may appear to be, you should notify your dentist of it. As the following emergencies demonstrate, ignoring problems now can lead to more serious dental concerns in the future.
You dislodge a crown
If you have undergone extensive tooth decay treatment, you may have one or more crowns on your teeth. If you dislodge a crown, your tooth may be at risk for a number of problems. It might be exposed to bacteria that can cause infection. It may also crack or produce pain when you eat. Should you be able to locate the loose crown, clean it with gently running water and attempt to reposition it over the tooth. Contact your dentist for further instruction.
You suffer a toothache
When getting a checkup, many people might be surprised to learn that they have cavities because they weren’t experiencing any pain. Because tooth enamel does not contain nerve endings, minor tooth decay may be present in the absence of discomfort. If that decay progresses beyond the enamel and into the tooth interior, pain may develop. So if you experience a toothache, it may be the result of significant cavity. Call your dentist to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
You chip a tooth
A chipped tooth can weaken the integrity of a tooth, making it susceptible to further damage during the chewing process. If the chip produces a sharp edge, it can also lacerate the tongue and interior mouth tissues. Should you chip your tooth, try to find and save the broken piece, as your dentist may be able to restore it. You may also want to place orthodontic wax or sugarless gum over the chip to dull it. Seek immediate dental help.

Dental anxiety can arouse uncomfortable feelings, but its effects can surpass emotional distress. If dental anxiety prevents you from going to the dentist, you may eventually suffer serious health complications. Skipping your checkups and ignoring tooth pain can result in extensive tooth decay, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. To gain control over your dental worries, consider these coping strategies.
Evaluate Your Concerns
If your dental anxiety is getting in the way of your oral health, take a moment to figure out why it is a problem. Do you get anxious about the dentist because of long-held assumptions? Does your anxiety reflect the attitude that your parents passed down to you? In many cases, dental fears stem from the opinions and thoughts of others. Under other circumstances, they can develop from a previous dental experience that caused discomfort. By uncovering the source of your anxiety, you can take steps to manage your emotions or seek treatment from another dental professional.
Practice Calming Exercises
Dental anxiety can cause physical changes to the body. It can lead to rapid breathing, accelerated heart rate, and sweating. However, you can control these side effects by practicing conscious relaxation. Even as you sit in the dentist’s chair, you can create a more comfortable experience by concentrating on your breath and relaxing your muscles.
Talk to Your Dentist
If you have dental anxiety, confiding in your dentist about it can have a highly positive outcome. Your dentist can create a warm, safe, and comfortable environment in several ways. He can explain your procedures so that you become less fearful of the unknown. He can provide you with hand signals to use if you want to pause treatment. Your dentist can also offer sedation dentistry options to relax your mind and body. By talking to your dentist about your dental anxiety, you can eventually overcome it.
Are you hesitant to get the dental treatment you need? Then call Dental Care of Stamford at (203) 883-4464 to speak with an associate at our Stamford office. We would be happy to discuss your individual anxieties and find strategies to alleviate them.
