Restoring a Young Girl’s Smile

This is my 16 year old patient who had braces for 8 years and her orthodontist never managed to create contact between her back teeth. The only contact that existed was between her front teeth, which caused it to be unstable and detrimental for her teeth and jaws. In other words, she never had any bite on any of her back teeth. With accurate measurement and a great dental laboratory, @frontierdentallab, I was able to close her bite with some crowns on her back teeth. As you can see in the bottom pictures we got a very amazingly stable result!

Diagnostic Dental Wax-up

Diagnostic wax-up is very valuable model to plan for a cosmetic Smile Makeover. It helps determine the final outcome and offers a simulation of what the teeth will look like after shaping the teeth into an ideal appearance. This helps your dentist see the end result before cosmetic dentistry procedure starts. A set of dental impressions is taken of the teeth, along with digital photos to create dental casts, which then are shaped, modified, and positioned prior to the beginning of cosmetic dental rehabilitation. The final result is placement of crowns and/or veneers based on the wax-up model.

Helping Your Kids Learn and Love To Brush Their Teeth

Helping Your Kids Learn and Love To Brush Their Teeth
ANY PARENT KNOWS that getting your child to do certain things like eat their veggies, clean their room and even brush their teeth can be difficult. But the reality is that tooth decay is the number one disease affecting young children today.
To combat this, kids need to learn and love to brush their teeth early on in their lives. Our goal is to help your children maintain bright, healthy smiles and help them learn early the importance of good oral hygiene.
Let’s Catch Up On Some Of The Basics
Your child’s first dental visit should be when their first tooth appears, or around their first birthday. Once teeth emerge, you can start brushing them. Brush your child’s teeth twice a day with a child-sized toothbrush and only a smear of toothpaste (the size of a grain of rice). When two teeth begin to touch, it is time to start flossing!
From the ages of three to six, you can use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Remind children not to swallow the toothpaste. Continue to help your child brush their teeth until you feel that they can correctly do so on their own.
Our Top Tips On Teaching Your Kids Good Oral Hygiene
It may not be easy, but it will definitely be worth it to teach your kids the value of taking care of their teeth. Here are some things you can do to help them understand just how important a task it is, and even how fun it can be!
Teach Them Why
When kids understand the reason behind something, they are more inclined to do it. You can even make it more interesting by spinning it into a fun story and giving the bacteria in their mouths a name, like the plaque monsters or tooth bugs!
Let Them Participate
Allowing your child to pick out their toothbrush, toothpaste and floss is a great way for them to participate. If you use a timer to help them brush their teeth for the full two minutes, let them press the button. Find ways to get them involved!
Use Positive Reinforcement
Parents know better than anyone what kids will do for prizes. One idea is to use a sticker chart. Every time they brush their teeth well, without complaining, they get to put a sticker on the chart. When the chart is full, they get a prize!
Make It Fun
Whether you turn on their favorite two-minute song or have them brush their stuffed animal’s teeth first, making it fun is key to helping your child love brushing time. There are also many Smartphone apps out there dedicated to making oral hygiene more fun!
You can even show them this fun video to help encourage them to brush their teeth!


We Are Proud Partners of Parents
Although getting your child to love brushing and flossing their teeth is difficult at times, remember that we are your allies in helping ensure their lifelong oral and overall health. If your child is still struggling with brushing and flossing, let us know, we are here to help.
Thank you for your trust in our practice.
