Your Wheaton Orthodontist Explains How Accelerated Orthodontics Work

Wheaton Orthodontist accelerated orthodonticsAre you considering getting braces?  If so, you’ve probably asked or wondered, “How long will my braces have to stay on?” Typically the answer is about one to three years, or longer. However, your Wheaton orthodontist Dr. Danielle offers accelerated orthodontics; a new, emerging treatment that significantly reduces treatment time.

What Is Accelerated Orthodontics?

Accelerated orthodontics is a treatment that doesn’t replace traditional orthodontics, such as braces or invisalign; it makes the traditional treatment process faster.  In some cases it requires the daily use of a convenient device and in other cases it requires a minor procedure.

We Use Two Different Accelerated Orthodontics Systems

Propel:

Propel comes in 2 forms: a small, handheld device with a mouthpiece that delivers micropulses to the teeth to initiate bone growth, OR a small device that creates micro-perforations in the bone, both make the teeth move faster. Patients only need to bite down on the mouthpiece for 5-10 minutes a day.  The micro-perforations are done in the office by Dr. Danielle and take 10-15 minutes to complete.  It works with both traditional braces or invisalign. Users may reduce their time by up to 50%!  Sometimes teeth are very stubborn & just do not move as quickly, so the Prople micro-perforations are a great adjunct to those difficult areas!

Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics:

Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics, or AOO, also accelerates your orthodontic treatment up to 4 times and works with either braces or invisalign. AOO is a minor, in-office procedure that stimulates bone density and growth during treatment, often reducing your treatment time to four to ten months. This treatment is great for patients with compromised bone tissue who may not have otherwise been able to tolerate traditional braces.  This is typically done by an oral surgeon or periodontist.

Speak to your Wheaton orthodontist about which system is right for you.

The Benefits Of Accelerated Treatment for Orthodontics

There are many benefits to using one of our methods of accelerated orthodontics. Here are a just a few of those benefits:

  • The most obvious benefit is that treatment time is less, thus you are in treatment for less time. This is especially important for adult professionals who may not want to wear braces for very long.
  • These treatments work with any kind of braces–metal, white or clear ceramic, lingual or even with invisalign.
  • It increases bone and tooth density. If you are losing bone or tooth density for any reason, accelerated orthodontics will not only shorten your treatment, but it will increase tissue density, as well.
  • Both methods are fast and easy. Whether you chose to use a device for 10 minutes each day, or opt for a short, in-patient procedure, treatment requires a very small investment of your time.

Am I A Good Candidate For Accelerated Orthodontics?

Although this is a new field, there are no real adverse affects if the treatments are done properly. Accelerated orthodontics is great for children, adolescents and adults alike. However, there are a few factors that exclude someone from being an accelerated orthodontics candidate.

  • If you’re sensitive to frequent adjustments. Because your teeth will be moving faster, you will need more frequent adjustments. If you do not handle adjustments well, you may not respond well to accelerated orthodontics.
  • Your type of malocclusion may exclude you. Some types of malocclusions are less compatible than others for this treatment. Discuss with your Wheaton orthodontist to find out if you would be good for this.
  • Because accelerated orthodontics is such a new and innovative field, your insurance may not fully cover the procedure. Speak to our skilled office staff to see what insurance benefits you have.

Looking to fix a broken tooth that “needs” a dental implant but not wanting to spend the money? Here’s a great, cost savvy solution!

Elizabeth came into the office with a fractured front tooth. After falling ice skating, her tooth had broken at the gum line. After consulting with a few dentists about options and only receiving the advice of getting a dental implant, Elizabeth was in desperate search of a money saving solution to her problem. She came into Dr. Bauer for advice; he had the solution of extracting the root of the tooth from the gums and pulling the tooth down so there would be a larger surface to place a crown on.  This procedure is known as the surgical extrusion technique and is great for some teeth that are healthy but broken off at the gumline.

Elizabeth was thrilled with this idea!  Not only would it save money and time, but it would look natural and feel like her real tooth! After a few appointments, Elizabeth was able to walk away smiling with a new crown placed on her front tooth! She is ecstatic about her new smile and about the money she saved by deciding to go with Dr. Bauer’s treatment plan!

In the final photo you can see Elizabeth’s front tooth is fixed and she is very happy with the results! The natural looking crown was the perfect solution to her fractured tooth! If you have a similar problem and are looking for a cost effective solution that will stand the test of time, this could be an ideal procedure for you! Give us a call today to set up an appointment!

 How can you find out if you are candidate for this dental implant alternative?

Call today to make an appointment and find out if you are a candidate for this technique!  We will take one x-ray and complete an examination to check the tooth.   If the remaining portion of the tooth is in good health, the surgical extrusion technique may be for you!

Understanding The Process And Benefits Of Dental Veneers

Wheaton cosmetic dentistUnfortunately, the way you present yourself can mean the difference between making or breaking that interview, getting that client or impressing that company. First impressions are lasting and your smile is a big part making a good first impression. If you’ve tried everything, from the drugstore products to minor dental procedures, but nothing has worked, veneers may be the option for you!

What Are Veneers?

Veneers consist of several thin layers of material like porcelain or composite that are adhered to your original tooth. Your Wheaton cosmetic dentist can help you determine which types of veneers are best for you.

Veneers can be shaped to correct most defects or discolorations, leaving you with a straight, gleaming white smile. Though veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry, in some cases, they can even correct minor bite-related problems. When performed by a certified Wheaton cosmetic dentist, the end result will look, feel and function like your own teeth, only better!

Your dentist will create veneers specifically made to correct your smile. In order to apply them, your dentist must remove part of your tooth enamel, and then bond them to the teeth with light sensitive resin. Your Wheaton cosmetic dentist will cure this resin with a special curing light to ensure the bond is strong and secure. This will guarantee your veneers, and your fabulous new smile, will last!

Preparing For Your Veneers

Getting veneers does take some preparation. Make sure to do your part at home first. Brush and floss regularly after every meal and try not to irritate the gums by brushing them too hard.

Your Wheaton cosmetic dentist will help you prepare, too. Your dentist will schedule the procedure into two or possibly more sessions. The first session may consist of a check up to determine the health of your teeth and gums. Your dentist may elect to fix underlying issues before your veneer procedure to make sure your new smile has a solid foundation.

It may seem like the preliminary preparation is taking forever, but trust your Wheaton cosmetic dentist. A certified professional will make sure your veneers have a healthy foundation and are built to stand the test of time.

There Are No True “No-Prep” Veneers

Have you ever heard the expression “If it’s sounds too good to be true, it probably is”? The same principle works for “no-prep” veneers. “No-prep” veneers claim to adhere veneers directly on top of the original tooth, without removing the enamel. This sounds ideal, but usually results in an over-contoured, bulky, artificial look with a less than secure bond to the tooth.

There are minimal prep veneers that require only a small amount of enamel to be removed. However, this is based upon your tooth and gum health. Your Wheaton cosmetic dentist will discuss all options with you and the two of you will ultimately determine which procedure is best.

Benefits Of Veneers

Since veneers are created for each individual patient, it’s almost impossible to distinguish a veneer from a natural tooth. And, unlike natural teeth, veneers resist stains and other types of discoloration. This means a whitener, brighter smile without the worry of eventual dulling. Your Wheaton cosmetic dentist will schedule regular maintenance to make sure your veneers are adhered properly and they function as they should. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist may prescribe a mouth guard to keep your veneers looking great.

If nothing else has worked and you’re looking to straighten, brighten and whiten your smile, contact AACD member, Dr. Bryan Bauer at Bauer Dentistry. He can guide you through the entire process, bringing you one step closer to the smile you’ve always wanted. Visit our website or make an appointment to learn more!

Is Oral Surgery Safe During Pregnancy?

While it may be obvious to not eat sushi or go zip-lining, the line becomes blurred when it comes to some medical and dental procedures, particularly oral surgery. Is oral surgery safe during pregnancy?

oral surgery safe pregnancy Wheaton IlWeighing The Necessity Against The Risk

Oral surgeons and obstetrician agree that any elective surgery, like cosmetic procedures, should be put off until after the birth. Anesthesia, the physical discomfort of laying prone for extended periods, and the emotional stress that many people experience with dental procedures – are risks it’s better to avoid during pregnancy unless medically necessary.

The Best Time For Oral Surgery During Pregnancy

If an oral surgery procedure is recommended, but it’s not an emergency, the second trimester is the ideal time. In the first trimester the fetus’s vital organs are rapidly developing, so exposure to x-rays, anesthesia and other drugs should be avoided. In the third trimester, women can be very uncomfortable on their backs.  That is reasons enough but laying flat too long puts pressure on two major blood vessels, the inferior and superior vena cava. This can disrupt the flow of blood to the uterus, and the brain, causing dizziness and nausea in women.

The Safety Of X-Rays during pregnancy

While most routine x-rays are generally considered safe in pregnancy, most dentists recommend that pregnant women should postpone routine dental x-rays until after the birth. However, in an emergency situation where oral surgery is being considered, x-rays are often necessary. Rest assured, your dentist or oral surgeon will take extra precautions to shield the rest of your body and take as few images as possible.

The Safety Of Anesthesia

Local anesthesia and lidocaine injections, are completely safe during pregnancy.  Nitrous oxide, laughing gas, and general anesthesia are not recommended for pregnant women.

Antibiotics And Pain Relievers

There are certain drugs in both of these categories that are approved and deemed safe during pregnancy.

A complete list of drugs that are safe during pregnancy and breast feeding can be found here.

  • Mesial roots of first and second molars mostly had one large canal until 11 and 15 years of age, respectively. Pieris 2008

Most Effective Teeth Whitening Practices For A Beautiful Smile And Healthy Mouth

Most Effective Teeth Whitening PracticesThere are dozens of products on the market today that offer a gleaming white smile. Many are sold over the counter, at drug stores, or online. With so many options available, it’s hard for consumers to know what’s going to work best, and what the risks may be. What are the most effective teeth whitening practices?

  • Whitening Strips –

    By far, the most common DIY whitening product are strips, which you apply to your top and bottom teeth. Before you start any at-home tooth-whitening product, visit your dentist to check for any cavities or gum problems. Whitening strips contain low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, which acts as a bleaching agent, so they will whiten your teeth, but in very small steps; it may take numerous applications to achieve the level of whiteness you want. Strips may cause mild irritation of the gums if they’re not applied carefully.

  • Whitening Gel –

    DIY whitening gel is also available at retail stores, online, or from your dentist. These systems use a tray – which may be a custom-fitted night guard, if you’re buying it from your dentist – filled with hydrogen peroxide gel that’s significantly stronger and more effective than the strips. The downside is that this stronger gel can also cause tooth sensitivity or, if not used correctly, it can temporarily inflame or damage the gums. If you’re planning to use whitening gel, start using a toothpaste formulate for sensitive teeth about a week before, and keep using it until you’re done with the whitening treatments. For most people, DIY gel whitening is a process of two to three weeks.

  • Dentist Gel Treatments –

    Getting your teeth whitened at the dentist’s office is the fastest and safest way. They use a more highly concentrated gel, which requires application by a trained professional, so that the gums are not harmed in the process. This professional-grade gel can lighten tooth color significantly in a single treatment, which takes about an hour. Some patients will need a couple of treatments to achieve the final result they want. Your dentist will examine your teeth and mouth to determine whether you’re a good candidate for profession whitening, and will give you an idea of what results you can expect for your own teeth.

  • Maintenance –

    Whitening toothpaste and mouthwash products don’t contain enough whitening agents to reverse yellowing, but they do an excellent job of keeping white teeth white. By removing stains as they happen, whitening toothpaste and mouthwash prevent stains from penetrating deeper into the tooth enamel, which require more aggressive whitening treatments to remove. Use a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash daily, and you’ll need whitening treatments less often, and enjoy a bright smile daily.

Fast, Effective Teeth Whitening

At Bauer Dentistry, we use the most effective teeth whitening practices to offer our patients safe and effective ways to get that perfect smile they’ve been wanting. Contact our office to schedule a consultation and we’ll explain what results you can expect from professional teeth whitening.
