One of the questions dentists hear most often from patients is, “What toothpaste should I use?” Most patients don’t love the typical answer, “It’s up to you.” However, the most important factor in picking a toothpaste is choosing a product that you like. Whether it’s the flavor, aroma, or the texture you like, as long as you consistently brush your teeth, your toothpaste should do its job, keeping your teeth clean. In this post, you can learn some basics to better understand what to look for and how to make the right toothpaste choice for your unique smile. You can also be one of the patients who asks their dentist for a recommendation during your next preventive dentistry checkup. Dentists and dental hygienists are always happy to help their patients make these choices.

When we first mention dental implants as an option for patients with missing teeth, they often have no idea what to expect. The entire idea seems foreign to some patients and frightening to others. While the dental implant supported tooth replacement process does require a little more time than other tooth replacement options, the results last longer and look and feel more natural. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, please contact the La Plata Dental team to schedule your dental implant consultation.

For nearly 20 years, Invisalign clear braces have been the trusted brand for discreet tooth alignment. Whether you’re an adult who can finally afford bite correction or a young person who doesn’t want the embarrassment of metal braces, Invisalign can help you straighten your teeth without impacting your confidence. In Framingham, MA, Dr. Marianna Gaitsgory of Framingham Premier Dental provides outstanding Invisalign treatment to invisibly perfect your smile.
Invisalign vs Traditional Alignment
Traditional braces use tension between your teeth to shift your bite into alignment. Using a system of brackets and wires, the teeth are slowly shifted overtime. This method works fairly well for adolescents and teens because their teeth are still developing and shifting. The older you are the more your teeth fuse with your jawbone, and become more difficult to move. Adults who choose to have traditional braces often experience a great deal more pain than young adults because of the added pressure are their teeth. Additionally, there’s the embarrassment factor. You may not be in high school anymore, but it’s still difficult for people to take you seriously when you’re smiling with a mouth full of metal. At Framingham Premier Dental, we think you should be able to keep your confidence while you perfect your smile.
Invisalign has been the clear choice in discreet dental alignment for nearly 20 years. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can help reduce the pain associated with adult dental alignment, are not as noticeable as traditional braces, and have a less significant impact on your lifestyle. Invisalign straightens your bite using a series clear, plastic alignment trays. The trays are worn for about two weeks, and they exert pressure on the teeth to gently shift them into places. Because Invisalign doesn’t rely on resistance from surrounding teeth to pull a tooth into alignment, patients often experience less pain. Because the trays are clear and removable, it’s easy to straighten your smile without attracting unwanted attention. On most days, your trays are hardly noticeable, but if you are taking photos or have an important event, you can take your alignment trays out for increased discretion. Finally, Invisalign alignment plans usually take about a year, and require less than half the number of dental office visits that regular braces do. This means you don’t have to take as much time out of your schedule to achieve a beautiful smile.

At Framingham Premier Dental, Invisalign just got even better. We use 3D imaging technology to create higher definition images of your current bite, and the ability to plan every step of your alignment from a computer screen right at your chairside. You are involved in every step of the process, and this improved technology makes your aligners extremely precise and further reduces the number of dental visits you’ll need during treatment.

You may know that Botox can be used to treat wrinkles and lines on your face, but did you know that it can also help alleviate some TMJ symptoms as well? No matter what your reason for wanting this treatment may be, at Framingham Premier Dental we can provide the treatments you’re looking for.
Dr. Gaitsgory received training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to learn how to administer Botox and dermal fillers. This special training ensures that you’ll receive the best possible level of care during your treatment. Botox is used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and brows, while dermal fillers are used to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

This is a quick appointment that you can have during your lunch break or on your way to or from work. It only takes a short amount of time for treatment, but it could have a big impact on your life.
