The benefits of Invisalign for patients in Hollywood

Posted on: 2015-06-02

 

woman with beautiful smile holding InvisalignAlmost everyone wants a beautiful smile. Crooked teeth can really detract from the beauty of the smile, but even more important, they can also be more difficult to keep clean and free of decay. Inadequate cleaning can eventually lead to gum disease, so straightening teeth is important for both aesthetics and oral health!

 

The problem with straightening teeth is many people are turned off by traditional metal braces. It’s understandable, while traditional braces are effective; they are not very aesthetic and can often be uncomfortable or even painful for some. Invisalign braces are a clear alternative to metal braces that offer patients a number of other benefits. Here are some of the reasons North Hollywood patients love Invisalign.

  1. They are aesthetically pleasing

Let’s face it; metal braces are just not attractive. Adults having to pick food out of their braces at a business meeting would be awkward. Invisalign trays are clear and virtually unnoticeable. The clear aligner trays blend in with the dental arch and are much less distracting than other types of braces.

  1. They are more comfortable

Invisalign clear aligner trays can be removed when needed. Metal braces are attached to the teeth and they remain in place until removed by a dentist. Invisalign trays can be removed for short periods to eat or clean the teeth. In addition, the BPA-free smooth plastic is more comfortable than metal brackets and wires.

  1. Less risk of damage to teeth or gums

Traditional metal brackets and wires can scratch or cause sores inside the cheeks and on the gums. There is also the issue of tooth decay or demineralization of teeth due to difficult oral hygiene. Clear aligner trays can reduce the wear and tear on the mouth. 

  1. Shorter treatment time

Treatment with traditional metal braces can take 2 or 3 years. While Invisalign treatment duration varies by the individual, most patients achieve optimum results within about 18 months. The key is compliance. Patients who do not wear the aligner trays the recommended 23 hours a day will not see as dramatic results.

 

To learn more about a faster, convenient way to a straighter smile, call your North Hollywood dentist today for more information on Invisalign.

 

Restore your smile with Dental Implants from your North Hollywood Dentist

Posted on: 2015-05-19

senior woman with beautiful smileA lost tooth can be a real inconvenience. Who really feels good about smiling if there is a major gap in the smile?

 

The answer is no one.

 

Luckily, dental implants are an extremely natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. After treatment, you can have your Hollywood smile back and no one will know that you suffered from tooth loss.

 

We all know that Hollywood is the land of beautiful smiles, and you want yours to be one of them. Missing teeth can occur for a number of reasons: trauma, decay, or disease, and all of them are equally traumatic. Unlike dentures, which rest on top of the gums, and dental bridges, which require the support of adjacent teeth, dental implants actually integrate into the jawbone and replace the missing tooth roots. This permanent solution will give you the confidence to bite, chew, and smile, but it doesn’t happen overnight.

 

The dental implant procedure is a commitment because it takes place over the course of several months. Before beginning treatment, your mouth will be examined for any signs of decay or gum disease, as these will need to be addressed prior to the implants. Additionally, the bone structure is evaluated to ensure it is sufficient to support the implant.

 

Once you are determined a fit candidate for implants, the process can begin. During the initial appointment, the dental implant is placed securely into the jawbone. After the procedure is over, the bone will need time to heal over the course of several months. During this time, a temporary restoration can be put in place.

 

Once the jawbone has sufficiently healed and fused with the implant, you can return to the office to finish the procedure. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, a dental crown, bridge, or even denture can be affixed to the implant and they will be held securely in place.

 

Missing teeth don’t mean you have to lose your confidence. If you are ready to see your dazzling smile back, get in touch with your North Hollywood dentist today!

    I've been a patient of Dr Edmond for several years. This dental clinic is very warm and welcoming, making it much easier to have treatment done. I just had 3 of my wisdom teeth pulled, in and out and not painful at all!

  • Rating: 5Dentist North Hollywood - Five Star Rating Sarine G.

    I called A-dental on Tuesday 10/23 almost to tears with pain I was experiencing from one of my many cavaties. I knew I had cavaties because I had been to a different dentist who I just wasnt comfortable with. Anyways, right from the minute Edith answered the phone I knew I would be in good hands. I figured they would take me in either the day after or near future but she was able to squeeze me in right away.

    I am so glad that I switched over to this dental office! They are always extremely thorough in their check-ups, using all of the latest equipment (it's amazing how many offices let their equipment go far, far out of date due to the cost of updating it!).

  • Rating: 5Dentist North Hollywood - Five Star Rating Matt J

    This place was amazing. I had an infected impacted wisdom tooth that was spreading to my head. The cost of the procedure to take this infected tooth out was too expensive for me and i didn't insurance and had to pay out of pocket. They worked with me on the cost so I could afford it. They didn't try and rob me of every nickel I had which a lot of other dental offices do. It was one of a few places I have been to where I felt like they actually cared more about my well being than money. The whole staff was incredibly nice and accomodating.

    I been going to Dr. Elzayat for years and he is just awesome. I was without dental insurance for a almost 2 years, so when I finally got it, I had about a total of 7 fillings to be done, but all were painless. He even calls to check up on you later that evening to make sure you aren't having any problems or in any pain. Dr Elzayat and all staff you rock!
