If you lose teeth for any reason, it’s important that you discuss your replacement options with a dentist as soon as possible. Restoring lost teeth is essential to restore your dental health and to restore your appearance as well. To avoid the side effects that come along with having an incomplete smile, our dentist here at Family Dentistry of Maryland can discuss options such as Annapolis MD implant dentures that can help to improve your dental health and restore the quality of your daily life.

Losing teeth can be painful, and it can also be difficult to deal with for other reasons. Some people lose teeth due to damage or decay, whereas other people may lose them due to injuries or other purposes. If you have lost teeth, however, things like eating and speaking will never be the same. Your appearance may also change, whether your mouth is open or closed. Aside from these cosmetic factors, any inconvenience that losing teeth can have, living with an incomplete smile will put stress and strain on your bite, even potentially causing your remaining teeth to shift in place. To avoid all these things, it’s important that you have lost teeth replaced as soon as possible. There are several options available to people who have this condition, including Annapolis MD implant dentures. Dental implants are known for looking and feeling more like real teeth, and this is because they are surgically implanted into the jawbone like real teeth are. In fact, implants meld with the bone itself via a completely biological process called osseointegration. This allows you to eat and speak confidently with your implants, without having to worry about them becoming loose or falling out like dentures. Here at Family Dentistry of Maryland, we can discuss these options with you as well as determine whether you’re a candidate for the procedure.

21401 Teeth Cleaning

Dental cleanings versus periodontal cleanings in 21401

There are two main types of dental cleanings. There are regular dental cleanings and periodontal cleanings. Both of these treatments are available at our Family Dentistry of Maryland practice. If you need a 21401 teeth cleaning or periodontal cleaning, you should come to our office where you can be seen by one of our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Jun Tae Bae.

When a patient has gingivitis, or is simply coming into our office for dental maintenance, they will have a regular 21401 teeth cleaning. During this type of teeth cleaning, all plaque and tartar is removed from the surface of the teeth, from between the teeth and from just below the gum line. This treatment is very effective in helping to prevent gum disease as well as preventing dental cavities. If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums which is a common precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have a regular teeth cleaning at our office. If our dentist finds that deep pockets have developed between your teeth and gums, you will need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums. During this treatment, all bacteria, tartar, plaque, and food debris is removed from the deep pockets. At this time, local antibiotic treatment may also be applied. Hopefully, this gum therapy will help to reduce the size of the deep pockets and allow the gums to heal. Sometimes this treatment may need to be repeated more than once several months apart in order for the gums to return to good health. When periodontal cleanings are not effective in helping the gums to become healthy again, it may be recommended that the patient has gum surgery. Gum disease cannot be left untreated because it will always eventually advance and cause teeth to loosen and fall out.

For an appointment to come to our office for a 21401 teeth cleaning or periodontal cleaning, contact us today.

Annapolis Invisalign

Invisalign braces in Annapolis

Annapolis Invisalign

Invisalign braces derive their name from the fact that they cannot be seen when you wear them. You won’t have to feel at all self-conscious as you get orthodontic treatment, because no one else knows you’re wearing anything on your teeth; unless you tell them, of course. At Family Dentistry of Maryland, we are pleased to offer our Annapolis Invisalign as an outstanding alternative to metal braces. Their cosmetic edge is only one of the benefits they provide.

Traditional braces do a great job of realigning your teeth, but they can cause mouth irritation or soreness, especially in the early going. In addition, you are restricted as to the foods you can have during your treatment. Sticky and chewy foods can get caught up in your braces. And crunchy ones can lead to damaging the braces. But with our Annapolis Invisalign, those negative aspects are non-existent. The aligners you will wear are made of clear plastic, which will not cause you any discomfort. And they are removable. So when you eat, just take out your aligner. Enjoy all of your favorites. You should also take out our Annapolis Invisalign when you brush and floss. Your oral hygiene will be more effective without something in the way. Other than that, your aligner stays in 24/7, even while you sleep, always moving your teeth steadily into a more ideal position. On average, the total number of aligners during the course of your treatment will be 18 to 30, with each serving its purpose for about two weeks. The aligners are made at our office with the assistance of 3-D computer software and state-of-the-art machinery for optimal precision.

If you have been putting off getting orthodontic care, this might be the perfect time to take action. With Annapolis Invisalign braces, you can have a smooth, comfortable experience while your teeth are being realigned. Call us to arrange an appointment.

There are many times when a patient may need a dental crown in order to restore a tooth. If you are in need of receiving a dental crown or other type of tooth restoration, you will want to visit us at Family Dentistry of Maryland. At our Annapolis dental office, you will be able to be fitted for an attractive and comfortable dental crown by one of our expert family dentists, Dr. Jun Tae Bae, Dr. Yeonjin Choi, or Dr. Akbar Masood.

A patient can need a dental crown for many different reasons. At our Annapolis dental office, we provide many patients with dental crowns for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes a dental crown can be used purely to correct the appearance of a tooth. Other times a patient will need a dental crown because a tooth is damaged and needs to be strengthened. A dental crown is often used to protect a tooth after a root canal procedure is performed. Today porcelain crowns are commonly used as the top “tooth” portion of a dental implant. Porcelain crowns are also used to attach bridges to adjacent teeth, or to protect a cracked tooth and keep it from becoming worse. Crowns are commonly used to cosmetically restore discolored or stained teeth to their beautiful, natural appearance. Porcelain crowns are made in a laboratory and can either be all porcelain or can have porcelain baked onto a metal substrate. At our Annapolis dental office, our dentist will make sure that your new porcelain crown not only perfectly color-matches your adjacent teeth, but also will make sure that it fits you precisely, and is perfectly comfortable in your mouth.

For an appointment to see one of our dentists at our Annapolis dental office for a new porcelain crown, or for any other type of dental care, contact us today.
