Getting braces (or Invisalign) isn’t as easy as just putting them on the teeth as they are. Rather, you or your teen will first need a thorough tooth cleaning to make sure we are starting off with a clean, healthy surface. In some cases, more extensive prep work is necessary — like a tooth extraction, which makes room for the teeth to move around and line up properly. Not all patients will need to have teeth removed before they can get braces, but some will. It is more common in adults.

If you’ve ever taken a physics class, you’re likely familiar with the idea of displaced pressure. When weight is focused on a small area, it absorbs more pressure. When splayed across a larger area, the pressure is diminished. For instance, standing on a frozen pond increases the risk of breakage compared with laying down on the same pond. Consider the increasing amount of pressure your teeth absorb as you experience tooth loss. A single missing tooth displaces pressure onto surrounding teeth, which can lead to changes in the way the bite fits together, excess wear on remaining teeth, or further tooth loss. Patients with numerous missing teeth are at increasingly higher risks for damage as individual teeth have to absorb more and more pressure while chewing. That’s why replacing lost teeth is so important. Dentures and partials are two of the most popular restoration options for patients with advanced tooth loss.

Your smile has always been your crowning glory – except for one problem tooth on the right side of your mouth. Although it’s not easily seen when you grin, the pain and sensitivity that comes and goes sporadically. When you go see your dentist in Attleboro, they tell you that you need to have the tooth removed and then replaced with a dental implant. But when you look in the mirror to take a look at your tooth yourself, it doesn’t look that bad on the surface. You don’t see any dark pits that would indicate a cavity, the tooth isn’t loose, and the discomfort you feel is only intermittent, not constant – you don’t think you should have that tooth pulled after all. That’s why you schedule an appointment for a second opinion with the team at Capron Park Dental, and they give you the insight you need to save your tooth.
