The Time is NOW! for Invisalign

Filed under: Orthodontics — Tags: , , , , — Dr. Farshad Farhoumand @ 1:47 pm

Invisalign can help get your teeth straight in disguise.A misaligned smile is one of the worst experiences for any patient to go through. Not all of us grew up having a perfect smile, let alone all of our teeth. A misaligned smile becomes that way based on various variables. Thumb sucking, an overbite, underbite and other factors have a lot to do with how straight or uneven your smile appears. Traditionally, metal braces have been the preferred form of treatment, but that’s old news. Adult and teen patients don’t have time to deal with unsightly metal in their mouths. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we carry some of the most advanced orthodontic treatments available. We’re not just a dental office – we can handle all your orthodontic issues as well.

When you come to our office in Tysons Corner, VA, you’ll be greeted by a friendly staff and team of dentists. We’ll work hard to get your smile straightened and beautiful. Our orthodontic treatment can deliver results that you can enjoy for a lifetime. If you’re ready to do something about an uneven smile, we’re here to help.

Effective Dental Hygiene Between Visits

June 17, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-76765623When you leave a hygiene appointment with the outstanding staff at Avanti Dentistry your teeth look and feel their best. They are completely clean, and it feels great. By the next morning, that wonderful squeaky clean smile is a thing of the past. At Avanti Dentistry we want our patients to keep their teeth feeling like they just left a hygiene appointment. Some tips and tricks for effective at-home dental hygiene can help your teeth look and feel their best. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our skilled hygienists, at our convenient Tysons Corner, VA location.

The Basics

Preventive dentistry is the best way to avoid oral health issues that can be painful, difficult to treat, and hazardous to your physical health. We all think we know how to care for our teeth at home, but what you don’t know may surprise you. Maybe you know that you’re supposed to brush twice a day for two minutes and floss between your teeth at least once each day, but did you know there are multiple brushing and flossing methods or that using mouthwash directly following brushing is not encouraged? Like so many routine activities, tooth brushing is often done in a thoughtless, automatic way, but by making a change to your routine, you can significantly improve dental health.

Most of us are taught to brush our teeth as small children, and we are instructed to use one of two brushing methods a horizontal scrub (quickly moving a brush back and forth across the surfaces of the teeth), or the preferred fone’s method of using circular strokes to clean each tooth. While these methods are great for kids, there are techniques that would be much more beneficial for adults. The horizontal scrub method is damaging to enamel over time, and the fone’s method does not always adequately clean between your teeth and gums to remove plague and reduce the risk of periodontal disease.

There are many other methods for brushing your teeth, ask our hygienists to thoroughly explain them to you at your next appointment. The key to all of the brushing methods is ensure better cleaning of the places that periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay causing bacteria are most likely to grow. This means a thorough cleaning between and behind the teeth as well as along the gum line. A fast vibrating or rolling motion from the gums upwards is often effective.

Flossing is a dreaded chore, but the results speak for themselves. Your teeth look and feel better, if you floss on a daily basis. One easy switch that can make floss less of a chore is to use a single filament floss. Multifilament floss is more common but it tends to shred or break making flossing more difficult. Single filament floss is made of one single strand that slides more easily between teeth. When flossing, remember to always move floss gently back and forth between teeth until you reach the base of each tooth. Curve the floss around each tooth and gently clean below the gum line. Then, slowly move the floss back and forth to remove it from your teeth. Remember never to snap or pull floss between teeth. Gum tissue is extremely sensitive and can easily be cut or bruised.

Mouthwash that contains fluoride is a great way to retain the strength of your bite, but it shouldn’t be part of your brushing routine. After brushing, your teeth are coated with fluoride from your toothpaste which should contain at least 1350ppm of fluoride to be effective. Using fluoride mouthwash is a great after lunch dental hygiene solution. It’s easy to find a few minutes to swish your mouth wash, and you don’t have to worry about carrying along a tooth brush to work, school, or a restaurant. Travel sized mouthwash bottles are easy to carry, and refilling them from a larger bottle makes them cost effective too. Remember not to eat or drink for 30 minutes following the use of fluoride mouthwash.

A Few Tough Choices

Between visits there’s really only one other way to keep your teeth healthier and cleaner, and that’s to make a few tough choices about the food and drinks you consume. Foods and beverages that are high in sugar, acid or color can cause long-term damage to your teeth. Building a habit of rinsing with mouth wash or brushing immediately following meals is one way to combat the potential damage, but if you consistently struggle with tooth decay or gum disease, it may be time to start considering eliminating problem foods from your diet.

If you experience a dental emergency (lost tooth, abscess tooth, severe cut of mouth or tongue, etc.) try to visit us as soon as possible, but hygiene is essential to avoid bacterial growth that can lead to infection or decay. Be sure to clean any affected area with warm water, and slow blood flow with a cold compress or ice. Never remove debris from between your teeth with anything other than floss. Until you are able to schedule an office visit, continue to clean the damaged area as part of your hygiene routine, but take special care not to reopen cuts or further damage teeth.

Finally, if all the extra cleaning and change in diet still don’t give you the movie star grin you desire, we have numerous cosmetic dentistry services that will brighten any smile. Often a simple whitening treatment can change your entire smile. Call today to schedule a consultation to determine if any of our cosmetic dentistry options might be right for you.

Smile with Confidence with Cosmetic Dentistry from Your Tysons Corner Orthodontist

February 22, 2015

Your smile is as unique as your personality, and it’s an important part of who you are. You share it with family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers. If you feel that your smile is sending the wrong message due to aesthetic flaws, you’re certainly not alone. Millions of men and women feel insecure about their smiles, but today’s advanced cosmetic dentistry options make it easy to achieve the luminous, attractive look you’ve always wanted. At Avanti Dentistry, your Tysons Corner orthodontist offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions, including Invisalign, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and much more.

Get the Beautiful Smile You Deserve

Straight, healthy teeth serve as the basic foundation for an aesthetically pleasing smile. If your teeth are crooked, gapped, crowded, or otherwise oddly spaced, you may feel hesitant to share your smile with the world. With personalized solutions from your Tysons Corner orthodontist, it’s possible to correct misalignment problems in a way that suits your unique lifestyle. If traditional braces don’t sound appealing and you’re a candidate for clear aligner therapy, we may recommend Invisalign. These comfortable plastic aligners are virtually invisible, making it easier than ever to see results without metal brackets and wires.

Other cosmetic dentistry solutions that help perfect your smile include professional teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. The treatment that best works for you will depend on a variety of factors and our doctors will discuss each service in detail with you at your one-on-one consultation.

Adult Braces with Your Tysons Corner Orthodontist at Avanti Dentistry

January 22, 2015

If you are an adult with crowded, crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth, you may feel that you missed your chance at a straighter smile as a child. Today’s advanced orthodontic options, however, now make it possible for even the most image-conscious adult to achieve healthier, straighter teeth without bulky, conspicuous metal braces. In fact, nearly half of orthodontic patients today are over the age of 18. At Avanti Dentistry in Tysons Corner, VA, our team specializes in providing patients of all ages with orthodontic solutions that suit their unique lifestyles.

Reveal Straighter Teeth Faster than Ever Before

When most people think of orthodontic treatment, they imagine a shiny mouth full of metal that can detract from overall appearance. While this may have been the only option for straighter teeth a few decades ago, dental technology has evolved considerably since most of us were in middle school or high school. Today, it’s possible to correct malocclusion issues in ways that are virtually invisible, almost entirely undetectable by others. With the Invisalign clear aligners system and Incognito Hidden Braces at Avanti Dentistry, only you and your Tysons Corner orthodontist have to know that you are undergoing treatment to straighten your smile.

The Invisalign system features a series of customized, clear plastic aligners that are worn every day for an average treatment time of about 18 months. These comfortable, custom-fit trays fit precisely over your teeth, gradually shifting them into their desired position. For adult patients whose orthodontic cases require the stability and capability of metal braces, we offer Incognito Hidden Braces. These lingual braces are attached to the lingual surfaces of your teeth; this means that they face inward, toward your tongue, rather than outward where they are visible to others. Now you can straighten your smile without any of the embarrassment or self-consciousness associated with traditional braces.

Your Trusted Tysons Corner Orthodontist

If you are curious as to how your smile can be improved with adult braces, please give us a call today to schedule your consultation. You may be a perfect candidate for invisible braces with Invisalign or Incognito Hidden Braces. Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Tysons Corner, VA warmly welcomes families from throughout the surrounding areas of McLean, Vienna, Arlington, Washington, D.C., Fairfax, and beyond. Come see us today and discover why Avanti Dentistry is so widely known throughout Virginia as the most trusted and experienced Tysons Corner orthodontist.

How to Avoid Costly Dental Work with Tysons Corner Endodontics

January 5, 2015

No one likes to spend inordinate amounts of money on healthcare, and the same goes for dentistry. There are, however, some cases in which you simply have no choice but to spend a substantial amount of money when it comes to your mouth, particularly if you find yourself with missing teeth. While today’s technology is making it easier and more affordable to replace missing teeth, the most cost-effective solution involves preventing tooth loss and extractions in the first place. With your trusted Tysons Corner endodontics specialists at Avanti Dentistry, you can preserve more of your natural smile for longer, allowing you to keep your teeth and your hard-earned money.

How Your Tysons Corner Endodontics Dentists Can Help

The most common cause of tooth loss in America is periodontal disease. The second most prominent cause is advanced tooth decay. At Avanti Dentistry, our team offers every service your smile needs to stay healthy, staving off periodontal disease and tooth decay for teeth that look as good as they feel. If, however, you do develop deep dental caries and a root canal infection, we can help with that, too. With our effective and gentle root canal therapy, we can eradicate infection from deep within your tooth before extraction becomes necessary.

If you suffer from periodontal disease, you are certainly not alone. In fact, approximately 80 percent of the American adult population is affected by some form of gum disease, though many aren’t aware of their condition. With periodontal therapy, we can help you halt the progression of this aggressive disease, thereby supporting the overall health of your smile.

Schedule Your Endodontics Visit Today

While our office is happy to offer restorative dentistry solutions – including dental implants – we would rather help you keep your own natural teeth for as long as possible. Contact us today to schedule your visit with the team at Avanti Dentistry, and learn more about how your Tysons Corner endodontics specialists can keep your smile whole and beautiful. Conveniently located in Tysons Corner, VA, our family-friendly dental practice is privileged to serve patients from throughout Vienna, Fairfax, Washington, D.C., Arlington, and beyond.

Enjoy Straighter, Healthier Teeth in 2015 with Your Tysons Corner Orthodontist

December 22, 2014

The New Year is just around the corner, and people from around the world are preparing to welcome 2015 with resolutions of self-improvement. Why not take this opportunity to treat yourself to a healthier and more beautiful smile for life? We can help make that a reality with our comprehensive menu of orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry solutions, each tailored to fit your lifestyle, your needs, and your budget. Make your resolution count this year with the help of your Tysons Corner orthodontist at Avanti Dentistry.

Benefits of Straighter Teeth with Avanti Dentistry

With Invisalign clear aligners, Incognito Hidden Braces, and traditional orthodontic treatment at Avanti Dentistry, our team can help you smile with complete confidence. When your teeth look great, you’ll find that you are more inclined to share a friendly smile with those who matter most. An open, attractive, and genuine smile is an invaluable asset in both your professional and personal life, allowing you to show off your real personality rather than focusing on hiding your teeth.

While straight, white teeth are certainly the building blocks of a luminous, confident smile, the benefits of orthodontic treatment extend beyond the realm of aesthetics. When your teeth are properly aligned, they are inherently easier to clean. This translates to a decreased risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease, two of the most common dental health issues in patients of all ages.

Correcting malocclusion problems also helps to reduce your chances of developing bite problems like temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ dysfunction. This condition causes damage to the delicate joints that hold your jaw in place, resulting in chronic pain, migraine headaches, and neck and shoulder aches. Orthodontic treatment can correct a variety of problems, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and teeth that are oddly spaced, gapped, and crowded.

Your Trusted Tysons Corner Orthodontist

If you would like to ring in the New Year with the promise of a straighter, more attractive smile, we encourage you to give us a call today to learn more about your Tysons Corner orthodontist and the extensive array of options we provide. We genuinely can’t wait to show you what a difference our orthodontic solutions can make in your smile, your oral health, and your overall sense of self-confidence. Our conveniently located Tysons Corner, VA dental practice warmly welcomes patients from throughout the surrounding areas as well, including McLean, Vienna, Arlington, Fairfax, Washington, D.C., and beyond.
