Contributed by DentalROI

Wisdom Teeth ExtractionApproximately 90% of people don’t have room in their mouths for wisdom teeth. Despite this fact, wisdom teeth start to form at about the age of 10 years, typically emerging between the ages of 17 and 25 years of age. Wisdom teeth are a third and final set of molars that helped our ancestors eat foods like roots and raw meat which required a lot of chewing force. So-called because these teeth erupt at a time in a person’s life when they reach maturity and develop a certain level of wisdom, these teeth often bring a lot of health-related issues with them.

For this reason, correcting misaligned teeth is a practice that’s been in play for several centuries. But while traditional braces have been around since the 1700’s, Invisalign didn’t hit the tooth straightening scene until the year 2000. Despite this fact, many of our patients at Green Tree Dental are interested in Invisalign as a popular alternative to traditional braces, but the final decision about which tooth straightening technique is best requires some careful consideration of the pros and cons of each.

What Are Dental Implants?

Contributed by DentalROI

Dental ImplantsSmiling, laughing, sneezing, and eating - these are things that our dental implant patients at Green Tree Dental can do easily and comfortably, without worry that their prosthetic teeth are going to move, or fall out. In fact, because dental implants have become so popular over the past 25 years, few people ever even realize that our patients have false teeth! The whole definition of “false teeth” has been completely renovated by the use of dental implants. As a result of the titanium metal posts that form the basis of implant dentistry, people can lose their natural teeth and replace them with fake teeth that don’t budge, just like the real thing. By fixing dental prosthetics like crowns, bridges, and dentures to implants, patients can go about their lives as they always have, even after they’ve lost all their natural teeth.
