Merrimack Invisalign

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.

Set up a consultation and examination right now to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

Londonderry NH Gum Treatment

Gum Therapy in Londonderry NH

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.
