Cosmetic dentistry is getting more popular than ever. This article will detail the different types available today and when they are indicated.

Teeth grinding Teeth grinding can occur while you sleep, often during stressful times in your life, which means you may not realize just how much you’re damaging your enamel. People may grind their teeth plenty during daylight hours too, and even though the pain of teeth grinding can make you very aware of your problem, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to stop this habit on your own. Finding the source of this act is one way to begin treating it, and new research has discovered one source of bruxism: social anxiety.  (more…)

With new improvements in dental technology being made each day, caring for your teeth and gums is easier, less painful, and more convenient than ever before. We have prepared a list of five modern dental advancements that we’re thankful to have. Read on to learn about these fantastic solutions—and share the things you’re grateful for in the comments below!Tension headaches

1. Natural-Colored Fillings, Veneers, and Implants
Advances in ceramics and dental materials have significantly improved the look of fillings, veneers, and implants. Each of these dental restorations can be handled with tooth-colored materials that are matched to the natural color of your teeth. Fillings, veneers, and implants can also be contoured and textured so that they look even more realistic.

Canton-OH-Dentists2. Dental Lasers and Cameras
Though dentists used to rely solely on what they could see from looking into a patient’s mouth, technological advancements give today’s dentists more information to work with. By using cameras and special dental lasers, dentists can diagnose problems more efficiently and provide better treatment.

3. Digital X-Rays
Many dentists use digital x-rays to diagnose patient problems. Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to and are better for the environment. They make the processes of storing, transferring, and producing dental x-rays safer for everyone involved. We only use digital x-ray at Dr. Cirka’s office!

4. Invisalignporcelain-veneers

Invisalign treatment is a great solution for anyone who suffers from crooked or poorly-aligned teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible and easier to care for than traditional metal braces. For many patients, Invisalign is a simple, painless, and low-maintenance treatment option. Not to mention, Dr. Cirka is one of the best InvisAlign providers in the city!

5. Better Knowledge
With advances in dental technology and general scientific knowledge, dentists today know much more about oral healthcare than their predecessors did. Modern dentists are also able to better understand the connections between oral health and a patient’s overall health. By understanding this important relationship, dentists can help their patients improve their dental health and reduce their chances of serious health problems in the future.

Call us today at (215) 568-6222 to schedule a cleaning with one of our amazing hygienists.  Patients have come through our office and said that the cleaning they had here was the best of their life.  We also provide an exam with Dr. Cirka and cavity detecting x-rays (which are FREE for new patients) so we can make sure that all of our patients are in the best oral and overall health.  We’ll see you soon!

Erstwhile character actor Steve Buscemi has become a leading man in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. While his less-than-perfect smile may keep him employed as a 1920s politician and cheat on cable TV, sporting a set of stained, crooked teeth might actually be preventing you from getting ahead in your field.

Of course, missing teeth affect how you look, but they also impact your ability to eat well, speak clearly, maintain proper alignment of your smile, and care for your teeth.

The reason why you’re missing teeth is irrelevant – gum disease, extraction, sporting incident, accident. What is relevant is that your smile can significantly alter your overall health, not to mention your self-confidence, which impacts your daily life. (more…)

Good nutrition starts in the mouth – and goes on to affect the rest of your body – which means that oral health issues can compromise your overall well-being.

Loose teeth, ill-fitting or uncomfortable dentures, missing teeth, broken teeth, gum disease – all of these dental concerns can affect how well you are able to eat. Biting into a cob of corn, a juicy steak, or a stick of celery can be downright frightening to someone whose teeth are anything but stable. (more…)
