Keeping the Needles at Bay | Schnecksville Dentist

When you’re in the dental profession, there is one major question you are constantly asked by your patients as they step in the room – am I going to need to get a shot? No, you are not alone. Many patients are sitting in the same boat as you are and as dental professionals, we have to do our best to make our patients feel comfortable while in our dental chair. But despite the anxiety that is building as we begin a dental procedure, anesthesia is necessary. It is vital to performing a successful dental procedure. So, how do you rectify this dental dilemma? The Wand.

The Wand Anesthesia System is a computer-assisted way to deliver anesthesia to the patient that is revolutionizing the dental surgery industry. No longer are the days that you are staring down the barrel of a dental needle, now there is a plastic wand.

Within this handy wand is a very tiny needle that will deliver your anesthesia to your mouth in the most pain-free way possible. And because a computer is aiding its delivery, there is now a way to only numb the tooth in question. Not only that, but the computer will also administer the correct amount of anesthesia throughout the procedure. No more “fat lip” feeling, no more embarrassing accidents. In fact, you don’t even need to miss work because an entire area in your mouth hasn’t been numbed.  

So, as you can see, you have nothing to worry about at your dental appointments. Here at Extraordinary Smiles, it is our first priority to give our patients the most calming, efficient service possible. And we are proud that The Wand Anesthesia System is the latest addition to our patient care.

It’s Not Hard to Make a Good Impression | Schnecksville Dentist

When it comes time to get a dental procedure done, it is important that your dental professional gets the best look into your mouth in order to prepare your mouth for what’s to come. In the past, this impression was created with trays and gooey material. For many patients, this would trigger a gag reflex or other variations of discomfort, making the whole experience very undesirable. Thankfully, dental technology has advanced in this area and 3D impressions have changed the impression-making game.

These days, dental impressions can be done with an intraoral scanner. The scanner shoots a light at the area and a 3D digital impression is created in less than a minute. Not only is this a more time-efficient way to get a look at a patient’s mouth, but if the scan isn’t taken to the satisfaction of the dental professional, or the impression isn’t as clear as it could be, it can be easily retaken at that time. No more additional appointments! This not only saves time, but also money – no more impression trays and materials to keep on hand.

Taking time to visit the dentist is something everyone needs to do, but not always the most favorite task to do. With today’s technology, these appointments are becoming faster, safer and a comfortable experience for the patient. Here at Extraordinary Smiles, we have taken advantage of many of these soothing and relaxing methods to ensure our patients have the best experience possible. Soon enough, these experiences are going to be so enjoyable, you’ll begin to look forward to making those dental appointments.

Live Your Best Life with Dentures | Schnecksville Dentist

Whether we like it or not, life happens. And sometimes that life leads to the loss of our teeth. Because our smile is so intricate to our daily lives, having any issues with it makes us feel self-conscious. We don’t smile as much, and we may develop issues speaking or eating that cause us to even step away from being social. Thankfully, this isn’t the end of your smile – it’s just time to call your dental professional for a consultation. Because, for many, the solution to this problem is dentures.

You may be thinking, ‘Am I doomed to keep my teeth in a glass next to my bed for life?’ ‘What if my teeth fall out during a social event?’ And a while back, you really wouldn’t have an option. Yes, those may be instances you would likely face. But you don’t need to have those concerns now. While there are removable dentures available, there are also fixed sets of dentures available to alleviate those uncomfortable situations typically associated with traditional dentures.

Not only that, but here at Extraordinary Smiles, we are pleased to offer our patients both partial and full denture options. Your particular case is exactly that. We are here to design your perfect smile, regardless of the issues you are facing. In fact, we offer lots of various options with your smile makeover to give you the brilliant smile you’ve always wanted, and no one will be any wiser that your smile isn’t natural.

If you feel like your smile’s flaws are causing you to shy away from living your best life, give us a call to set up a consultation. Together we can make the smile of your dreams a reality.

Why We Need Straight Teeth | Schnecksville Dentist

In our culture, we associate straight teeth with beauty, vitality, health and even status. But being born with perfectly straight teeth is very rare. Unfortunately, many believe that straight teeth are a cosmetic choice, but that simply isn’t true. Having straight teeth have multiple advantages beyond a great smile.

Straight teeth provide the correct foundation for chewing. When your bite doesn’t align properly, it can cause pain along with dental problems. Misaligned teeth (crooked or crowded teeth) can cause issues from chronic jaw or tooth pain to excessive wear on tooth enamel. A poor bite increases stress on teeth and contributes to a shortened “life span” where teeth begin to crack and develop other signs of fatigue.

Another bonus? Cleaning straight teeth is much easier than cleaning crooked teeth, which have lots of hiding places for plaque and tiny bits of food. Not cleaning these hiding spots properly will begin to cause cavities. The next stage may be gingivitis, or an inflammation between the teeth and gums. If not taken care of with proper dental hygiene, science links chronic inflammation with a variety of health disorders, including heart disease and cancer.

Now to remedy the situation. Traditional braces were one of the few treatment options you could take in order to remedy the situation. But today, there is another option – an option that no one would even notice. Invisalign is a set of invisible aligners used to move your teeth into the correct places discretely and efficiently.

Have we gotten you intrigued? We thought so. Why not call Extraordinary Smiles and set up a complimentary consultation with Dr. Ladani to see if Invisalign is the best choice for you.

For more information about Invisalign, call Dr. Sandip Ladani in Schnecksville, PA at 610-799-0600 or visit www.extraordinarysmiles.net.
