If you’ve been hesitating to have your teeth straightened, our Merrimack Invisalign could be just the thing to spur you to prompt action. Here at Londonderry Family Dentistry, we offer braces that are invisible, comfortable, removable, and that don’t require adjustments. If it sounds too good to be true, let us assure you that you will have all of those benefits with Invisalign braces.
For various reasons, your teeth can become misaligned. And when that happens, there are several disadvantages that result. The most obvious is that your smile is not aesthetically appealing. But you can experience discomfort and your jaws can be thrown out of sync with each other. Your oral health could also suffer, since it is often more difficult to effectively floss between teeth when they are improperly positioned. Metal braces are one solution, but you might prefer to enjoy the benefits of our Merrimack Invisalign. Unlike with metal braces, they are virtually undetectable to the eye. No one but you will be aware that you are wearing anything on your teeth. Also, they are made from plastic, so the potential irritation and soreness that metal braces can cause are something you will never have to worry about with our Merrimack Invisalign. You will also be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods during the course of your treatment. Take out your Invisalign braces when you eat. Also take them out when you brush and floss, which makes your oral hygiene routine more efficient. One additional bonus is that due to the fact that you will wear not one, but multiple Invisalign braces, each for two weeks, there is no need to adjust them. Instead of coming in frequently, you only have to come in every six weeks for a progress checkup.

If you are experiencing gum problems, you should visit us at Londonderry Family Dentistry. Our expert dentist, Dr. Jana Trnovsky, can provide you with complete Londonderry NH gum treatment to help your gums become healthy again.
If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, an inflammation of your gums which can also be a precursor to gum disease, she will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. Gingivitis is generally caused by plaque that builds up at and below the gum line, and clauses gums to become inflamed. However, if our dentist discovers that deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, and that tartar, plaque, food debris and bacteria are gathering in these deep pockets, your diagnosis is mild to moderate gum disease. At this point, you will need to have gum therapy in order to help your gums to heal. When a patient has mild-to-moderate gum disease, they are usually treated with a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. During this Londonderry NH gum treatment, all materials are removed from the deep pockets and this should help the gums to heal. Our dentist may also provide antibiotic treatment to help treat any infection which may be present. Oral antibiotics may also be prescribed. During this treatment, the tooth roots are also planed so that it will be more difficult for plaque and tartar to stick to them. You will remain perfectly comfortable during this treatment due to our use of local anesthesia. This type of periodontal treatment is often extremely effective in helping gums return to a healthy condition. Sometimes this treatment will need to be repeated more than once in order to achieve the desired effect of healthy gums. If this treatment is not effective, you may need to have periodontal surgery to allow the deep pockets to heal.

If you want to make sure that your teeth stay healthy and cavity-free, and that your gums remain disease free, you will want to become a patient of ours at our Londonderry Family Dentistry practice. At our Londonderry dental office, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Jana Trnovsky, can provide you with a wide variety of dental treatments and comprehensive dental exams.
The best way to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy is to see our dentist at our Londonderry dental office every six months for a complete dental exam. At the same time, it will also benefit you to have a teeth cleaning at our dental practice. Many of our patients make these appointments for the same date so that they can take care of all of their dental needs in one office visit. Dental exams are a great way to determine if there are any problems developing in your teeth, gums, or bite. The dental exam will also contain an oral cancer screening which is extremely important. Teeth cleanings on the other hand will help ensure that your teeth stay cavity-free, and that your gums stay healthy. During a teeth cleaning, all plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris is removed from your teeth. This will help your teeth stay cavity free since plaque, which contains cavity-causing acids, will be removed from your teeth. At the same time, when the tartar and plaque is removed from your teeth it will most likely keep gum disease from developing. When tartar remains on teeth, it encourages the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris will all gather in these deep pockets and infection will form. At this point you will have gum disease which definitely needs to be treated. Gum disease will never go away by itself and can cause many serious problems ranging from loose teeth to serious medical conditions in other parts of your body.

For replacing missing teeth in the most effective and reliable way, we at Londonderry Family Dentistry provide dental implants. They mirror a natural tooth with a root beneath the gum and a tooth on top of it. You can speak, laugh, and chew with them, even the toughest foods with an implant from our 03053 dentist.
Cosmetic concerns are often the most pressing reason for wanting a dental implant. You look in the mirror and you see empty space where you used to have one or more teeth. But there are practical considerations, as well. Without a full set of teeth, the others on your jaw can start shifting, causing you discomfort. And when back teeth are lost, your ability to chew is compromised, potentially having a negative impact on your digestion. Our 03053 dentist will do an initial examination to determine if you’re a good candidate for a dental implant, including taking x-rays to make sure that your jaw bone is thick and strong enough to support the post. Fortunately, thanks to bone grafting, even if your jaw does not meet the proper standard, it can be corrected so that you will be able to benefit from dental implants anyway. The post, which is made from titanium, is surgically placed in your jaw, which will grow around and fuse with it over several months. The second step will the commence, and that’s when you are measured for the creation of a tooth-colored crown that will be cemented to the top of the post to complete your implant. It looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. Brush it, floss between it and your other teeth, and just go about your normal routine.
With proper care, there is every reason to optimistic that your new implant from our 03053 dentist will last a lifetime. Schedule your appointment right now.
