How the Breadth of Cosmetic Dentistry Services Can Be Key to Oral and Mental Health

October 24

Vanity aside, cosmetic dentistry plays an important role in good oral health. It is easy to tag it as a purely superficial and aesthetic endeavour, especially given the obviously visible effect it can have on people’s teeth – perfectly straight, gleaming white teeth are how cosmetic dentistry is usually presented, especially by famous celebrities.

However, its role in good dental health and in tackling other related oral issues should not be downplayed. Cosmetic dentistry can help to maintain the shape of a person’s face by preventing cheeks from becoming hollowed out by spaces caused by missing and crooked teeth. This in itself can lead to premature aging and have an effect on facial skin and muscle tone. In addition, the spaces between teeth can also cause other teeth to drift around the mouth, causing even more problems.

As well as dental health, helpful cosmetic dentistry can also substantially improve mental health, by giving people back their self-confidence. Newcastle Village Dental is an Ontario dentist based in Newcastle that offers a wide range of dental services. One of these is orthodontics, which can play a significant role in helping people to attain aligned teeth that support and encourage good oral health. The clinic offers two principal methods of orthodontics – traditional metal braces, and the newer plastic aligners called Invisalign.

Metal braces have been used for decades and are still popular due to their strength and durability. They are fitted to the teeth and slowly force them over time to move into the appropriate alignment. It is most common for them to be in place for around two years, during which time they will be occasionally tightened and altered to ensure the teeth are moving in the way they are supposed to. It is also usual for patients to wear a retainer in the immediate period following the brace’s removal, to help secure the teeth in their new positions.

Invisalign is the more modern substitute for metal braces, and are often appealing to patients because they are made of clear plastic that is moulded to the teeth – meaning there is minimal self-awareness over wearing them, compared with the often severe-looking nature of heavy metal braces. They are similar to metal braces in that they usually stay in for two years, but have a key advantage in that they can be removed for eating and cleaning. And rather than undergo periodic adjustments like metal braces, they are instead replaced every two weeks.

Newcastle Village Dental also provide dental restorations and a range of cosmetic dentistry services such as veneers and ceramic crowns. They can also carry out dental implants for a more permanent solution to missing teeth, and deal with more serious oral health problems such as endodontics and periodontics. Here a range of procedures such as gum grafting and pocket depth reductions can be carried out, in addition to root canal treatment – which can be essential in saving a tooth.
