About general and cosmetic dentistry
General and cosmetic dentistry are the heart and soul of your total oral health. Despite huge advancements in dental materials and techniques, the ultimate goal for any dentist is to help their patients preserve his or her natural teeth for as long as possible. Unfortunately, due to tooth decay, accidents, and many other circumstances this isn’t always easy or possible.
In today’s cutting-edge society a variety of services and procedures are available for people to either maintain or improve their smile. From corrective and cosmetic procedures such as Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and removable dentures to preventative and rescue procedures such as cancer screenings, root canals, and tooth fillings, Dr. Schultz and the staff over at Schultz Family Dental of Park Ridge take pride in their hassle-free, patient-centered approach to dentistry.
The benefits of general and cosmetic dentistry
General and cosmetic dentistry is vital when it comes to the net health of your teeth and gums. Generally speaking, it’s best for individuals to seek out the services of a dental professional at least once every year. More often than not, these yearly check-ins will involve a cleaning and a diligent oral exam to check for any signs of gum or tooth abnormalities.
Something that people are often surprised to hear is the fact that symmetry in the teeth is directly related to symmetry of the face. This often means if efforts are taken to curb or otherwise correct asymmetrical teeth, the end result is usually a more handsome and appealing facial structure. Naturally this leads to a tremendous boost of confidence and self-esteem no matter the age or sex of the individual with restored symmetry.
The rise of self-esteem and confidence derived from having optimal oral health often translates to social settings. For example, a person experiencing some tooth decay may not want interact with others because of the bad breath associated with such ailments. Or perhaps a more pressing example would be a person suffering from severe physical pain who could benefit for a treatment such as a root canal or perhaps a tooth extraction.
Keep in mind that by following a regular check-up schedule put forth by your dentist you can better curb would-be problems and trouble areas much sooner. This ultimately means less time and money spent at the dentist because of issues that would have otherwise been fixed much earlier.
