Got Crooked Teeth? Here’s What You Can Do Right Now! *Video*

Check out the quick video below to see Dr. Scott Voiers of AuraSmile Dental explain how crooked teeth can be fixed in less time than you might think thanks to invisible orthodontics!

Do you have crooked teeth? Did you have braces when you were younger only to find that over the years your teeth have started to shift out of alignment? Don’t feel too guilty, you’re not alone!

At AuraSmile Dental, we see countless patients with crooked teeth, especially in the front of the mouth. It can be discouraging to have spent years in braces as a teenager only to find that later on in life your teeth once again appear crooked and unsightly (no thanks to your dog for eating your retainer!). Many of us took for granted the straight teeth we had as kids and would love to once again have that beautiful, well-aligned smile. At AuraSmile, we understand how important this is to our patients and we believe in going the extra mile to make it more affordable and faster than ever to make this dream a reality.

Technology in orthodontics has grown in leaps-and-bounds over the past several years. The brackets and wires of years past have been replaced by clear aligners which can be worn with relative anonymity in comparison. With these aligner technologies, the field of orthodontics has become much more affordable and acceptable for adults. Many cases with invisible aligners can be completed in well under a year (and some even in 6 months or less!) with fantastic results.

If you have been thinking about fixing those crooked teeth and finally getting the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of, there is no better time than the present. Remember; the sooner you begin your aligner treatment the less correction (and time) it will require as your teeth continue to shift throughout your lifetime.

At AuraSmile, new and existing patients are welcome to free consultations for orthodontics and clear aligners. Even if you are unsure about whether it is right for you, we are happy to provide you with specific information about your case and show you what is possible. Schedule an appointment today and see Your AuraSmile dentist about invisible orthodontics!

Learning More About Dental Phobia

An excessive fear of dentistry is known as dental phobia. The mere mention of certain words can trigger that gut-wrenching sense of terror to those with dental phobia. A phobia is the fear of a certain thing, which is baseless and unreasonable. However, this really exists and there are people who suffer from dental phobia. They are not ashamed about it and all they know is that they fear going to the dentist.

This gets even worse, and because of their extreme fear, they do not visit the dentist for treatment except when it reaches a very critical condition. This causes two problems: First, they are already in extreme pain when they show up at the dental clinic, and they will associate their pain with the place. Next, since they seldom see a dentist, their teeth are in a poor, if not worse condition, making them feel embarrassed. This aggravates their fear.

This becomes a vicious cycle, which is too hard to get out of, since individuals suffering from dental phobia do not want to see a dentist. It is just like having a fear of spiders or heights.

Nowadays, such phobias can easily be cured. However, those who seek to be cured are only those who want to overcome it because of personal reasons like moving to a place where there are lots of spiders or wanting to learn how to skydive.

Nevertheless, dental phobics want to conquer their fear due to some reasons. Some really do. There are many options that could help them.

Dental Phobia

Let us look into some specific things that people fear most that could cause their phobia.

Needles

This is a common fear since there is nothing to like about needles. The truth is the person who is holding the needle (like the doctor) has the control. The dentist can give a painless shot. However, this usually takes time to do it right.

This brings us to the next factor – there is someone else in control.

It is natural for people to want to have some control over their lives, but with regard to getting dental treatment, the dentist is the only one in control. So, the patient needs to trust him.

Noise and smell

Though these two factors should not affect you in any way, you just seem to sense them. The noises that dental instruments make sound too familiar. The same is true when it comes to the smell associated with a dental clinic. Both can easily turn off some people.

Vibration

This is what a person senses every time the dentist works on the teeth. Though there may be no pain, you can feel the vibration. Some people can go through injections, but cannot stand the sensation caused by the vibration.
