I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1992. Dentistry is a challenging and fascinating profession; dentists must have diagnostic skills, dexterity, extensive scientific knowledge, and good visual memory. Dentistry also requires artistic ability. In addition to the technical aspects of dentistry, I really enjoy interacting with my Maple Grove dental patients.
Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary to Achieve a Healthy Smile
Many so-called Minneapolis cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Champlin dental procedures such as tooth replacement are smile-enhancing and, more importantly, prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss, and difficulty chewing and speaking.
Most Champlin people probably know how a pediatric dentist differs from an orthodontist. Some Plymouth, MN, folks may even know the unique focus of endodontists. But few Minnesota residents are probably aware that the American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties. Today’s post looks at the specific disciplines within the fascinating world of dentistry and the years in which they were formally recognized by the ADA. (If you want a challenge, see if you can name all nine before you continue reading this post.)
Another way to get those teeth looking beautiful is by undergoing some routine cosmetic dentistry procedures. If you want to close spaces between the teeth, improve your gumline, or repair chips or cracks in the teeth, then dental bonding, crowns, or porcelain veneers might be what you’re looking for.
Our fun staff is committed to helping our patients achieve superior oral health. We always encourage our patients to build good dental habits in their Champlin, Plymouth, or Osseo homes so that the whole family can benefit.
