What are Mini-implants?
dental implants are very strong, small, titanium screws that
are approximately the size of wooden toothpicks. They can
be used to anchor a bridge or denture, or for single tooth
Dr. Sweet will first do an exam or consultation to determine how many
mini-implants you will need. Then under mild anesthesia the
mini-implants are gently placed. If you have a denture it
is then created to fit over and "snap" onto the
implants, resulting in a tight fitting denture that doesn't
"float" around the mouth interfering with speech
and trapping food underneath.
Latest Trend in Orthodontics is No Braces at All!
"invisible braces" (which are not really braces at all, but clear
plastic retainers) are a new technique for adults to obtain the results of
braces without wearing braces! This technique, which is effective only for
mild to moderate crowding, utilizes a series of retainers (computer generated
or lab constructed) that are worn sequentially until the desired correction
Lasers are self-sterilizing, provide the maximum
amount of control, and are virtually painless during
the procedure and post-operatively.
Air Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder
that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat,
vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The
procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always
requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise
technology and usually removes less tooth structure
for a filling than a drill would.
