Wine Tasters, Beware

Wine tasters may be at high risk for enamel stain and erosion.
Why? Sipping wine many times a day — and swishing it in the mouth — increases the enamel’s exposure to damaging acids.
That is why it’s better to drink a glass of wine, soda, or sweet tea with a meal instead of sipping it over several hours.

Clear Orthodontics Dentist

Orthodontics - Clear Dental Braces Dentistry Savannah GAOrthodontics – The Clear Alternative
If you have always wanted straight teeth, but have not wanted to wear noticeable braces, we have a solution for you! We are happy to recommend to our patients Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ aligners. They are innovative orthodontics that are so clear they’re invisible, and they correct your smile in only 9 – 15 months! They address all the problems of crossbite, underbite, overbite, gaps, and overcrowding.
With state-of-the-art technology, 3-D computer imaging will produce the complete treatment plan for repositioning your teeth to a beautiful smile. Sets of transparent, thermoplastic aligners are made to fit your teeth and with the first set you wear, your teeth will begin to be gently repositioned to the desired alignment. Approximately every two weeks, you will advance to the next set of aligners as progress is made toward your goal. Evaluation will be made in our office every four to eight weeks. The total time for treatment is based on individual needs.

Straight Teeth - Invisible Dental AlignersBoosting Your Confidence
Although traditional braces work well, there are advantages to the Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems. Most wearers choose this option because they are nearly invisible. They are only noticeable if someone looks at them extremely close up. This lets you feel confident throughout your treatment.
As there are no metal or wires that need adjustments, you will have fewer visits to our dental office. There is no mouth irritation from these comfortable, one-piece aligners, and no bulky headgear to wear. The best part is you can eat whatever you want, as they can easily be taken out for eating and cleaning. There are no worries about plaque building up on the surface of your teeth during treatment, as you can remove the aligners to thoroughly brush your teeth.

Your Mouth Is Not a Bottle Opener!

Your mother was right: Never open bottles, packages, or other containers with your teeth. You might permanently chip or crack the enamel.
Gnawing on anything else — like pens or fingernails — or chomping down on seeds, popcorn kernels, or ice could have the same result.

White Dental Fillings

White Dental Fillings Savannah GANo Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!
The silver-mercury amalgam filling has been the standard material for restorations from cavities. It hasn’t been the best option, however, as a metal filling does not bond well to teeth, eventually letting decay seep into the tooth. Also, the appearance of a dark, contrasting filling is not visually pleasing, being very noticeable when you talk or laugh. While many practices still use this filling material, we offer durable composite resin fillings that bond very tightly to the tooth, greatly reducing the chance of decay. As the filling matches the shade of the tooth that is being restored, it is not noticeable and makes for an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
