June is Oral Health Month, so it’s a good time to reflect on the health of your smile and those of your loved ones. Enjoying the benefits of a vibrant smile in tip-top condition is not something that you can take for granted. The best way to avert the development of cavities, gum disease, and other issues is with good oral hygiene, a nutritious diet, a healthy lifestyle, and a program of preventive dental care. Remember, it’s important not to hold off seeing the dentist until you’re in terrible pain or think there’s something wrong. By scheduling a routine appointment for a comprehensive checkup and professional cleaning, we can help you keep your smile looking and functioning at its very best.
As skilled and experienced providers of care, we emphasize the importance of dental prevention to help maintain optimal oral health. We encourage patients to come in twice a year for routine checkups and professional cleanings. In this way, we can monitor your oral health, reduce your risk of dental disease, and detect any issues early in their onset when they are typically the simplest to treat.
While proper dental care is essential at every stage of life, it’s especially important for children to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health. With routine checkups, preventive treatment, and age-appropriate education in the best methods of taking care of their teeth, we can help your little ones protect their smiles from dental disease. We also monitor your children’s dental and jaw development as they grow; keeping a close watch to determine if any orthodontic intervention will be needed to align their smiles.
We’re proud of the reputation we’ve established for providing skilled and compassionate care while achieving outstanding treatment outcomes. We look forward to helping you keep your smile in tip-top condition. For more information on our office and the many state-of-the-art services that we provide, give us a call today.
The alignment of your teeth and bite affect your overall oral health, as well as your self-image. With Commack clear braces we make it easier for image-conscious teens and adults to attain the harmonious smile they desire with comfortable, discreet aligners. Using Invisalign®* aligners, we offer a virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces, allowing you to straighten your teeth without having to feel self-conscious about wearing orthodontic appliances.
If your teeth are crooked, crowded or spaced too far apart, you may find yourself holding your smile back from the world. Misalignments and malocclusions can also make your teeth more difficult to clean, increasing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. With Commack clear braces, you’ll be well on the way to enjoying the beautiful smile you deserve. As a first step in care, we’ll discuss with you your treatment goals and perform a comprehensive examination to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment with Invisalign. To begin designing your customized treatment plan, our dentist utilizes advanced 3-D imaging technology to analyze the alignment of your teeth and bite and determine the precise corrections required. These images are then sent to our Invisalign laboratory, where they fabricate your custom sequence of BPA-free plastic aligners. The aligners gently and gradually deliver calibrated orthodontic forces to guide your teeth into place. Every two to three weeks you’ll receive a new aligner, to accommodate the subtle repositioning of your teeth as treatment progresses. Our friendly professional team will teach you how to properly utilize and maintain your aligners, for the most effective outcome of care.
If you’ve avoided orthodontic treatment due to concerns about how braces will compromise your appearance, Commack clear braces may be the solution for you. At Elisa B. Nelson, DDS, we provide state-of-the-art solutions to make dental care more convenient and better suited to your individual needs.
