What are Mini-implants?

mini-implantMini 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 replacement.

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.

The Latest Trend in Orthodontics is No Braces at All!

invisaligninvisalignAdult "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 is achieved.

Soft Tissue Laser

Modern lasers are used to cosmetically contour gums, lengthen crowns to provide ample structure for restoration, and treat pockets of infection during gum treatment.

Lasers are self-sterilizing, provide the maximum amount of control, and are virtually painless during the procedure and post-operatively.

Air Abrasion

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.
