Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners

Want a confident smile without the “hardware” associated with traditional braces? Clear aligners are a significantly less noticeable option and can be a great alternative for most people. Made from transparent materials, clear aligners are custom-made for each patient using state-of-the-art scanning technology which creates a 3D model of your teeth. This scan is used to create the transparent aligner which gradually adjusts the alignment of your teeth. Teens, adults, and parents also love that the clear aligners can be removed. This makes eating your favorite foods more enjoyable and cleaning your teeth much easier. The orthodontists at Bradenton Family Dentistry are experts at creating healthier and happier smiles by using clear aligners to straighten teeth and correct alignment.

Clear Braces

Clear or Ceramic Braces are similar to traditional braces but are made of tooth-colored or clear materials to make them less noticeable. They are the same size and provide the same corrective benefits offered by metal braces. Clear or Ceramic Braces are made of porcelain, ceramic, or other transparent materials and blend in with the natural color of your teeth. At Bradenton Family Dentistry, we’re ready to answer your questions about clear or ceramic braces and how they compare with traditional metal braces. Our knowledgeable and professional dental staff are fully equipped and ready to help you walk through this journey towards a healthier and happier smile.

Orthodontics

Traditional braces are still an effective option to correct the alignment of your teeth. Modern traditional braces are smaller, smoother, and significantly more comfortable than those previously available. Modern braces are an excellent option for creating a healthier and happier smile. There are more benefits to straightening your teeth than just creating a more confident smile. Straight teeth are easier to clean, which lowers your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. And, by aligning your bite, you can help solve structural problems that create jaw pain and chewing difficulty.

Sedation Dentistry

A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway, and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

TMJ Treatment

The terms TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. The TMJ is the jaw joint, and a TMD is a problem with the joint. Let our TMJ specialist at Bradenton FL take care of you!

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long lasting esthetic and functional result.

Tooth Colored Fillings

A toothache can disrupt your life. Tooth decay, cracked teeth, and cavities will provide a constant and painful reminder. At Bradenton Family Dentistry we have completed thousands of fillings.

Root Canal

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root are exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, with well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shells that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. Our Bradenton veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.
