Preventative Care in Mobile

When it comes to preventative care, that means at-home as well as here at the office of Sonya White, DDS where you will get a full dental exam and a teeth cleaning every six month.

You need preventative care because of dental plaque. This film-like bacteria grows on and between teeth, as well as at the gum line. It decays your tooth enamel, resulting in the formation of cavities. And when you have a cavity, the risk becomes greater for toothaches, infections, root canal, and extraction. Your gums, though, are also in danger from the effects of plaque. Initially, you may have redness and irritation, even if you don’t feel them. Those are indications of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. If you come to our dental office in Mobile two times per year, gingivitis will be reversed by a thorough teeth cleaning. However, if gum disease is permitted to progress to the advanced stage of periodontitis, the symptoms are more obvious, and they include persistent bad breath, receding gums, bleeding when you brush, loss of gum and bone tissue, and loose teeth. At home, you should brush in the morning and before bed, with a thorough flossing included for the bedtime session. However, plaque that escapes your oral hygiene hardens into tartar. It’s impossible to get rid of it without a cleaning at our dental office in Mobile. Our preventative care makes new cavities and gum disease less likely, along with addressing existing gum disease. And cavities detected early and filled promptly reduce the possibility of complications, up to and including the loss of a tooth. Prevention now is always preferable to treatment later.

Don’t let it slip your mind. Call us right now while you’re thinking about it. Book an appointment for preventative care at our dental office in Mobile right now.

Invisalign Braces in Mobile

From a time when your only choice was metal braces, we’ve reached a point where you can enjoy the benefits of our Mobile Invisalign, the system of clear aligners that do the same job as traditional braces do, except without the negative aspects of them. Here at the office of Sonya White, DDS, you can get your teeth straightened easily and comfortably; and most of all effectively.

Invisalign braces are made out of clear plastic, making them virtually undetectable to anyone else. You can go about your normal daily routine without the rest of the world having any idea that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. That’s not the only great thing about plastic, though. It also provides far greater comfort than you can get from metal, which may cause you irritation or soreness as the result of friction. Instead of wearing just one set of braces that have to be adjusted frequently, our Mobile Invisalign is spread across an average of 18 to 30, with each serving a specific role in the process for two weeks before being discarded in favor of the next one. That’s easy to do because the aligners are removable. Just take one out and replace it. You should also take out your aligner when you eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise, keep it in all day and night, even and especially as you sleep. And because you eat your meals free of our Mobile Invisalign, you don’t have to observe any restrictions on what foods you have. Indulge yourself in even those that are crunchy, sticky, or chewy. You get optimal fit from them because they’re made at our office, designed using 3-D computer software, and crafted with state-of-the-art machinery.

If you’re convinced that Invisalign braces might be the right ones for you, just schedule an appointment to come in for a consultation and find out. We’ll answer any questions you have. Call us today.
