The joys of spring are finally upon us. The grass is a little greener, the trees are a little fuller and the temperature dentistis a little warmer. You are probably setting out your spring clothes. Are you geared for this spring? More importantly, are you teeth fully geared for another year and beyond?
 
Dental Implants in Nashua Improve Oral Health
Let’s say you lost a tooth or two recently. Have you replaced those teeth? If not, what prosthetic dental device are you interested in getting? 
 
For a permanent solution, we would recommend a dental implant. While it’s true that any tooth replacement will benefit your smile, dental implants offer the most advantages. Here is how:
  • Permanent and won’t budge
  • Stops jawbone loss
  • Feels comfortable
  • Easy maintenance 
  • Less hassle than other devices
  • Durable
  • Esthetically pleasing
  • Supports facial structure
Each one of those benefits factor into better oral health. That’s why a dental implant is the rising restorative procedure in the field.

February is a pretty eventful month. People crowded around the TV to watch the Super Bowl, and now we spend our nights invisalignwatching the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. People enjoy the excitement and suspense that come with athletic events. In regards to contact sports, they are tough, which means a person can get hurt.
 
If you enjoy physical activity, you may already know this. That’s why sports that involve body contact require players to wear protective gear and mouth guards. Now, imagine wearing braces during rigorous activity.
 
You would have to make sure that the brackets and wires don’t get damaged because it may cause discomfort; plus, if you did have a dental accident, you would need to take time out of your schedule to get the orthodontic device fixed. This is why Invisalign deserves a gold medal—it straightens your teeth without getting in the way.
 
How Invisalign Works 
In Nashua, dentist, Dr. Robert LaRocque, offers an array of cosmetic treatments, including Invisalign—removable aligners. When you wear Invisalign, take out the aligners, so you can keep your head in the game instead of worrying about damaging your metal braces.
 
Whether you are in the game or off the field, you know your smile is getting the treatment it needs with Invisalign.
 
To schedule a consultation for Invisalign, call your Nashua dentist at (603) 883-6010.
