You don’t need metal braces in order to fix your crooked smile.invisalign

By adulthood, most people assume that they will have gone through all those awkward years of acne breakouts and metal braces. Of course, not everyone is able to get braces as a child or teenager, which means that they face crooked teeth as an adult. If you are tired of people looking at your smile rather than noticing you, our Bowie, MD, dentists Dr. Siamak Aalemansour, Dr. Fariborz Bail and Dr. Sherwin Esfandiari might have the answer you’ve been looking for.

What is Invisalign?

You’ve probably seen ads and commercials talking about Invisalign, but what is it really? Instead of applying metal to the front of your teeth for the whole world to see, our Bowie, MD, general dentists will provide you with your very own unique set of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit right over your teeth. Each aligner is specially crafted to apply the right amount of pressure to your teeth to begin moving them into the proper position.

What problems can Invisalign fix?

While traditional braces can fix your misalignments and malocclusions, Invisalign may not be able to tackle all issues because this system works a bit differently than regular bracket-and-wire braces. Of course, crooked or overlapping teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites can often be treated with Invisalign aligners. When you come in for your consultation, our Bowie, MD, general dentist will be able to better determine whether your smile is a good candidate for this orthodontic system.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Just knowing that you’ll wear clear aligners instead of cumbersome metal over your teeth is reason enough for most adults to choose Invisalign. Of course, you’ll also enjoy:

  • Removable aligners, which make it easier to continue eating and drinking whatever you want throughout the course of your treatment. Brushing and flossing also won’t change, since you can remove your aligners prior to cleaning your teeth and gums.
  • A faster treatment is also possible with Invisalign as compared to traditional braces.
  • You’ll also get to see a computer mockup of the results you’ll achieve with Invisalign, so you will get an idea, even before you get your aligners, of what your smile will look like after Invisalign.
  • You don’t have to come into our office for checkups as often as you would with traditional braces.
  • Aligners are made from a special thermoplastic, so they are more comfortable and less likely to irritate the gums than metal braces.

Omni Dental Group in Bowie, MD, is ready to help you get that straighter smile, whether you choose to do so with invisible aligners or traditional braces. Schedule your consultation with us today.

When your teeth are chipped or crooked, or you have a missing tooth, it's hard to feel good about your smile. Bowie, MD, family dentists cosmetic dentistryDr. Siamak Aalemansour, Dr. Fariborz Baik and Dr. Sherwin Esfandiari discuss a few treatments that will help transform your smile.

Dental veneers

Do you have a small, yet very noticeable, chip on a tooth? Adding a dental veneer to the front of the tooth will make that small flaw go away. Veneers are tooth-shaped shells that are just about as thick as a fingernail. They're available in a variety of shades, making it simple to match the shade of your teeth exactly. Veneers offer a good solution for many imperfections in teeth and not only hide the flaws you don't want to share with the world, but can also close gaps between teeth, whiten teeth or make a tooth a little longer. Veneers are attached to your teeth with dental cement and hardened with a curing light.

Dental implants

Losing a tooth alters your appearance and may also weaken your jawbone, making facial sagging and the loss of additional teeth a possibility. Because dental implants act as replacement roots, they perform all of the functions of natural roots, including applying the pressure on the jawbone required to keep it strong. The implants bond to your jawbone and support one or more artificial teeth called crowns. You can even take advantage of this innovative tooth restoration option if you've lost all of your teeth.

Invisalign

Metal braces offer an excellent way to straighten your teeth and improve your bite, but they aren't exactly subtle. Luckily, there's another option available today. Invisalign correct most mild to moderate orthodontic problems without metal wires and brackets. The system relies on a series of aligner trays to reposition your teeth. The clear trays never call attention to the fact you're improving your smile and can be removed when you eat. Each set of trays exerts gentle pressure that realigns your teeth. You'll wear the trays for about two weeks before starting a new set.

Can you benefit from any of these services? Call Bowie, MD, family dentists Dr. Siamak Aalemansour, Dr. Fariborz Baik and Dr. Sherwin Esfandiari at (301) 809-0029 to schedule your appointment.

Want a healthier smile? Poor dental hygiene can lead to several issues such as cavities, periodontal disease, tooth loss and infections. oral hygieneOmni Dental Group, which is located in Bowie, MD, offers a full range of dental services. Read on to find out what your dental regimen should consist of.

Proper Brushing

Brushing regularly is one of the best ways to keep our gums and teeth healthy. You should brush at least twice a day for 2 minutes each time. Start from the gum, and go up and down in circular, up-and-down motions. For the vast majority of people, a soft-bristled brush will be the safest and most comfortable choice. 

Daily Flossing

Dental floss is used to remove food and plaque from between teeth in areas a brush is unable to reach. The ADA recommends flossing once a day. This is important because dental plaque that's not removed by flossing and brushing will eventually harden into tartar. Flossing also helps to prevent cavities and periodontal disease.

Using Mouthwash

If you want to do something healthy for your gums and teeth, make mouth rinsing part of your daily routine. Therapeutic mouthwashes can help reduce plaque and tartar, periodontal disease and tooth decay. When selecting a mouthwash, look for products that carry the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which have been tested for their safety and effectiveness.

Cleaning Your Tongue

Don’t forget to brush your tongue, too. Brushing your tongue helps remove plaque, which can encourage bacteria growth and cause bad breath. Brush your tongue from back to front. Put some toothpaste on your toothbrush when you do this.

Seeing Your Bowie Dentist

The ADA recommends children and adults visit the dentist every six months for exams and dental cleanings. Some individuals may need to see the dentist every few months. Regular visits will get you on the road to good oral health.

Good oral hygiene is important to maintaining healthy gums and teeth. To keep your oral health on track, call Omni Dental Group in Bowie, MD at (301) 809-0029 today to schedule your dental appointment. Everyone deserves a healthy smile!

Could a dental implant give you back the smile you once had? It’s time to find out.

Dental implants are a pretty amazing solution for your tooth loss and we are pretty sure you will agree. After all, there is no other tooth dental implantsreplacement like this one. It offers a host of benefits that other treatment options like dentures or bridges just can’t. From the office of our Bowie, MD cosmetic dentists, Dr. Siamak Aalemansour, Dr. Fariborz Baik and Dr. Sherwin Esfandiari, find out how implants can replace your missing teeth for life.

Dental implants are an amazing way to close the gap left by missing teeth to give you a full smile once more. Tooth loss can cause serious issues for your smile such as bone loss and misalignments. It can even make chewing or speaking more challenging, and not getting the proper nutrients in your diet can affect your overall health, as well.

But dental implants offer a permanent solution, so say goodbye to tooth loss. An implant is a small metal post or screw that functions like tooth roots. Our Bowie general dentist will even surgically position the implant into the jawbone where over time the bone and implant will naturally bond together. Once they have fused together the implant is there to stay (if, of course, you properly maintain and care for it. Maintaining a healthy smile is key!).

A dental implant can support everything from a single dental crown or even a full set of dentures, depending on the severity of your tooth loss. Plus, filling that gap with an artificial tooth means that other teeth won’t shift out of alignment. And as if this wasn’t enough of a reason to get implants, you’ll be happy to hear that implants also preserve the health of the jawbone since they stimulate the growth of new bone cells.

Omni Dental Group in Bowie, MD is ready to help you get your smile back on track. If you want to get dental implants then it’s time to book a consultation with us. We would be more than happy to find out whether your smile is right for implants.
