Many people suffer from insecurities regarding their smile. Believe it or not, your lack of confidence in your smile can leak into many different aspects of your life. If you have crooked, gapped, or generally misshapen teeth, Dr. Sherif Albert is able give you the confidence you have always wanted with Invisalign!

By changing your smile, you can change your outlook on yourself and the world. You will be able to join your friends in a laugh, and never be worried about making a good first impression with a dazzling smile. If you feel as though Invisalign is right for you, make an appointment with Dr. Albert, and let him be a part of your new journey.

Dr. Albert Can Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in Downers Grove

Is the appearance of your smile marred by missing teeth? You have many options available to restore your smile, so there’s no need to put up with an incomplete smile any longer.  Esplanade Dental Care offers dental implants for a secure replacement option for missing teeth.

When you lose teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible so the health of the rest of your smile won’t suffer. Missing teeth increases the risk that you’ll lose more, and it could lead to your teeth moving around which will impact your bite. It’s important to call us as soon as possible so that we can help your smile with restorative dentistry.

Dental implants work by having a titanium post inserted into your jaw bone. Over time, this post will fuse with your jaw bone, creating a secure base for your replacement teeth that also mimics the root of a natural tooth. We’ll craft a custom crown and attach it to the post for a secure replacement for your missing tooth. Dental implants can also be used to support bridges or even dentures. Give us a call to learn more or to see how dental implants could be a great choice to complete your smile.

General Dentistry Care for a Healthy Smile

We offer a variety of dental services here at Esplanade Dental Care. General dentistry plays an important role in the health of your teeth and gums. Procedures that fall under this category focus on maintaining and improving tooth health, as opposed to cosmetic dentistry, which focuses on the appearance of your teeth.

There are a wide variety of general dentistry procedures to meet all your smile needs. Invisalign is a clear braces solution that can help to straighten a crooked, misaligned smile. If your teeth have been ravaged by disease or decay, they can be restored to health with a porcelain crown. If your teeth or gums are diseased or infected, we can help with root canal treatments (endodontics) or periodontal treatments. Extractions are used to remove severely damaged teeth, so they don’t affect the rest of your smile. We also use ViziLite® Plus technology to screen our patients for oral cancer, a serious threat to your oral health.

General dentistry is an important part of dental care because it focuses on the health of your teeth. If your smile is in need of some care, we can help.

Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

Regular dental checkups are the foundation of your dental health. Without regular checkups, your smile is at risk. We recommend you visit Esplanade Dental Care twice a year, about every six months, for your regular dental checkup.

Many times, patients think that because they brush and floss their teeth regularly that there’s no need for them to visit their dentist. Unfortunately, this isn’t correct. Brushing and flossing alone isn’t enough to ensure the health of your smile.

Plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth and cannot be removed simply by brushing or flossing. It has to be removed with special tools by our caring staff at your dental checkups. Also, we’ll check for signs of gingivitis, also known as gum disease. This bacterial infection is a serious threat to the health of your teeth and gums. We also have ViziLite technology to help us screen our patients for signs of oral cancer.

It is important to make time to care for your dental health. A simple way to do this is by having a regular dental checkup twice a year. Regular dental visits result in a healthy, beautiful smile. Show your smile the care it deserves by calling our office today to schedule your next dental checkup.

Dental Tips and Advice for a Beautiful Smile

We want all of our patients to have healthy, beautiful smiles. The staff here at Esplanade Dental Care have come up with some dental tips and advice to help you keep your smile shining bright. There are lots of simple steps you can take to help keep your teeth and gums in good health, so remember to keep these in mind.

One of the best pieces of advice we can give to our patients is to come and visit us twice a year for your regular dental checkup appointment. At these visits we will inspect your teeth to make sure your smile is healthy and answer any questions you might have. Also, make sure you’re brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. If you want a healthy smile, it’s important to start with a good foundation.

Another important tip is to remember that your teeth are designed to be used for chewing food only, not to tear open packages, chew ice, open bottles, untie knots, or anything else. This increases the risk that you will break a tooth.

Also, remember to change your toothbrush about every three months, or after an illness. This will help ensure that your toothbrush is free from germs and the bristles won’t get so worn down that they are no longer effective.

Finally, after eating, make sure you rinse your mouth out or chew sugar-free gum. This can help to increase the flow of saliva which will help to neutralize the acid that can affect your teeth, as well as remove some bacteria that will be hanging around on your teeth.

If you have any questions or want to learn more, simply call us. We care about the health of our patients’ teeth and are here to answer any questions or provide any advice that you need.
