Clear Braces

Teens now have a clear choice for braces. If we think they’re right for you, you can get nearly invisible braces.

To be a candidate for clear barces, you must have lost all of your baby teeth and your second molars must be partially erupted.


Creating your aligners

We’ll take x-rays of your teeth and jaws, photos of your smile, and impressions of your teeth.

We’ll create a treatment plan and send it to the lab.

There, your information will be digitized into a 3-D model of your case, and your aligners will be fabricated. Each set is designed to gradually move your teeth into their proper positions.

The aligners also have a power ridge that, where needed, puts extra force on certain teeth to encourage necessary root movement.

You’ll wear each set of aligners for about three weeks, and then replace them with the next set in the series.

Treatment time varies, but most people receive 12 to 25 sets.


Easy to wear

The aligners have no metal, so they’re more comfortable than traditional braces. They can be taken out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. You can wear them while playing sports, or brass or wind instruments. They are nearly invisible, so teens don’t have to be self-conscious about wearing metal braces. But, you must remember to wear them almost 24 hours a day.

Clear brases can be an easy way to get a straight, healthy smile. And a healthy smile can last a lifetime.

Emergencies

Eagle Valley Dental General Dentistry Services
If you have facial swelling and are having difficulty breathing, call 911 or get to an emergency room right away.

A dental emergency is a condition that needs immediate treatment. Although most people would realize a broken or knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency, many don't realize that a toothache with severe pain and facial swelling may also require emergency treatment.


What are symptoms of a serious dental injury?
  • Severe toothache and jaw pain
  • Pain when chewing or experiencing a change in temperature
  • Facial swelling
  • Isolated bleeding from a particular area of the mouth
  • A change in tooth color, which may take place over time
  • Obvious pus from infection around the gum area
  • Difficulty breathing

When to go to the dentist immediately (serious emergencies)

Severe pain: Severe dental pain is a sure sign of injury or infection -- a signal telling you to see a dentist right away. The cause of severe pain in the mouth can be an injury, infection, abscess, broken tooth, or a reaction to recent dental work. In any of these cases, your dentist must assess whether you need antibiotics or other medication, and whether any dental procedures -- including root canal work -- need to be done right away.

Persistent bleeding: If your mouth won't stop bleeding even after applying pressure and cold compresses, see your dentist immediately. Persistent bleeding can lead to nausea and panic in children, and it generally signals a deeper wound or more complex injury.

Broken tooth: If you've fractured a tooth but haven't exposed the dentin (the more fragile inner layer of the tooth) and you're not in a lot of pain, you can wait a day or two to get to the dentist's office. But if the crack has gone deeper, reaching the underlying dentin or pulp, or second layer, you're likely to feel increasing pain and should see a dentist immediately. Dead pulp tissue quickly decays, causing serious abscess or infection. If the pulp, or nerve center of the tooth, isn't protected, it may mean root canal therapy is indicated to save the tooth.

Knocked-out tooth: Even if you've just fallen on your face or taken the brunt of a baseball bat, if you have dislodged a tooth, it's important to keep your wits about you. Whether or not your tooth will successfully be re-implanted is directly related to how quickly you're able to get to the dentist. When a tooth gets knocked out, find it immediately. If it's still in your mouth, be careful not to poke or push your other teeth -- you may unwittingly cause further damage to teeth that are loose or cracked but not dislodged. Be very careful to handle only the crown (the part of the tooth that is normally visible) and not the root (the part of the tooth usually hidden by the gum). Try to place it in a container of milk or a saline solution. If neither of these is on hand, you can tuck the knocked-out tooth between your cheek and gum (being careful not to swallow it) and transport it to the dentist that way.

Never scrub the tooth, because you may damage living root and connective tissue. A knocked-out tooth has the best odds of being re-implanted if you get to a dentist's office and have the tooth placed back in the socket within 30 minutes. Even if more time has elapsed, don't hesitate to see a dentist, because you may still be able to save the tooth.

Significant injuries to the cheeks, lip or tongue: Slight cuts from accidentally biting your tongue or cheek, or minor burns from gulping hot coffee or eating a baked potato or hot pizza before it cools are nothing to get excited about. You can simply rinse the injured area with warm water and keep it clean. But deeper cuts, tears, punctures, or burns should be treated right away in a hospital emergency room or urgent care clinic, as you may need stitches or further treatment. An emergency medical technician should immediately treat punctures or lacerations that have penetrated the mouth.


When to go to the dentist promptly (minor emergencies)

A lost or broken filling: If it's painful, use an over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen until you can see your dentist. Make sure to brush and floss to remove any bits of food that might slip into cracked fillings or open cavities and cause inflammation. Visit your dentist promptly to stop the infection from setting in.

Chipped tooth: This is by far the most common mouth injury. Chipping a tooth usually means you've knocked off a small piece of enamel, but doing so is no reason to panic. If the dentin has been exposed, the injury may cause discomfort or sensitivity to heat or cold. For pain, take an over-the-counter pain reliever and then call your dentist. Try to be seen as soon as possible so the fracture will not deepen. The dentist can determine if the tooth needs to be capped or filled, and make sure the fracture has not deepened.


What should I do to prevent and prepare for dental emergencies?
  • Make sure our telephone number is readily available. If office is closed, you will be provided with an emergency phone number to reach one of our dentists. Know what hospital emergency room you will choose if you have a severe emergency or can't get to a dentist.
  • Use mouth guards, helmets, and face masks when playing sports. Make sure your child's coach or sports group leader knows how to handle dental emergencies.
  • If you or your child have dental caps, bridges, dentures, or implants, note it on your emergency ID card.
  • Avoid eating and drinking in a moving car, and always use your safety belt.

What are the most important things to remember after an accident?

Medical emergencies take priority over dental ones. If a patient is unconscious or having trouble breathing, get to a hospital first, and call your dentist later. Anyone who is unconscious or semiconscious with a dental trauma must be watched, and should never be left unattended. Remove any dental apparatus from inside your mouth -- that means dentures, removable braces, retainers, mouth guards, and dental jewelry on pierced lips or tongue.

What if I've been in an accident and have a dental emergency?

Once you've been to the hospital emergency care center and it's been determined that yours is a dental and not a medical emergency, you can see one of our dentists for an emergency exam. At the hospital, a dentist or doctor will account for any missing teeth and will take stock of the injury to your jaw, nerves and tissues. A technician will take an x-ray of your mouth, and if the dentist suspects that a tooth has been swallowed, x-rays of the neck or chest may also be ordered. Depending on the injury, he or she may also refer you to an endodontist or to a dental or plastic surgeon for further treatment.

Remember, seek emergency dental care if you have dental pain accompanied by any of the following:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent bleeding in the mouth
  • Severe pain in the mouth or jaws
  • Facial swelling and inflammation

Dental emergencies are rarely life-threatening, but they may become so if not attended to. If you don't panic, there's a good chance your healthy smile will return.

Extractions

When tooth extraction is needed

Generally, we recommend treatments that will save teeth, but when a tooth is so damaged that it cannot be saved, extraction is the best choice.

Extraction might be best for-

  • teeth that are fractured below the gumline.
  • severe tooth decay.
  • advanced periodontal disease.
  • primary teeth that are too crowded or not falling out properly.
  • an impacted wisdom tooth.

The procedure

Before we start the extraction procedure, we may offer nitrous oxide to relax you, and we’ll numb the area with anesthetic to keep you comfortable. After several minutes, we check the area to make sure that it’s completely numb. During the procedure, you’ll feel pressure when the tooth is removed, but you shouldn’t feel any pain at all. If you do, we’ll stop and give you more anesthetic.

If the tooth hasn’t yet come in through the gums, we’ll start by making a small incision. To remove the tooth, we’ll use an instrument called an elevator, which is placed next to your tooth and is used to gently loosen it. Then, we use forceps to grip the tooth carefully and remove it.

Sometimes, if your tooth’s roots are curved or are held tightly in the socket, it’s helpful to cut the tooth into sections before removing them. If an incision was necessary, we may close it with a couple of stitches once the tooth is removed.


Taking care of yourself after the extraction

To minimize problems after your tooth is removed, you’ll need to follow our post-operative instructions carefully, especially for the first 24 hours. These instructions will explain how to control bleeding, how to relieve pain and minimize swelling, how to prevent dry socket, and what to eat and not eat.


The benefits of extracting teeth

An extraction is sometimes the best treatment choice for preventing many future dental problems. Depending on your situation, these problems might include the risk of infection, the spread of periodontal disease, cysts in the jawbone, or severely crowded or misaligned teeth.

CrackedTooth

When a tooth is cracked, it’s often best to protect the tooth by placing a crown to protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking.


Symptoms of a cracked tooth

You may have a cracked tooth if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • Your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold temperatures or to sweet or sour foods.
  • You sometimes feel a sharp pain when you chew.
  • The pain is intermittent rather than constant.

Some teeth look cracked, but may not be a problem. One kind of hairline crack, called a “craze,” occurs over time in the enamel layer of the tooth, and it may not require immediate treatment.


Why do teeth crack?

Teeth can crack for a number of reasons. One is that they endure a tremendous amount of pressure from biting and chewing every day, and as teeth age, they may lose some of their original strength. The heavy stresses of clenching and grinding can also weaken teeth.

Teeth also lose strength when tooth structure is lost, as with root canal therapy or large areas of decay. Teeth can easily break off when the crack is next to large fillings. Chewing on ice, unpopped popcorn, hard candy, and other hard objects can weaken teeth, and these habits can fracture teeth that are already weak. And finally, teeth can crack or fracture because of an injury or accident.


Diagnosis and treatment

We recommend that you see us for an exam if you think you have a cracked tooth, even if it doesn’t hurt. The exam typically includes x-rays. However, x-rays don’t always reveal a crack, so we may also analyze your bite to isolate the problem.

There are several types of crowns, including gold, porcelain fused to metal, and porcelain. If your tooth needs a crown, we’ll talk with you about the best kind for your situation.

It’s important to evaluate and treat cracks as soon as possible because they can grow quickly. If a crack reaches the tooth’s nerve, bacteria can infect the tooth, and root canal therapy may be required to save it. If the crack extends to the root, the tooth may need to be extracted.

To prevent a cracked tooth from breaking and to seal out bacteria and infection, we often recommend placing a crown over the tooth.
