Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is essential if you want to maintain strong, healthy teeth. If you don't take care of your teeth, you can end up with gum disease and tooth loss. Poor oral care is even linked to serious medical conditions such as heart disease. While most of us understand that regular dental checkups are important, it's still important to have proper oral care at home too.

If you need a dentist and you live in Parkland, FL, schedule an appointment with Dr. Hector Naranjo of Evolution Dentistry. He and his staff provide a wide range of dentistry services that will help you enjoy excellent oral health. Read on for more information about how to keep your teeth beautiful and strong.

Brush Your Teeth

One of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy is to brush them at least twice a day. Brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste gets rid of the food particles on your teeth and removes bacteria-containing plaque, a material that causes cavities. If the plaque isn't removed, it can also turn into a hard substance called tartar. This tartar makes it more difficult for you to effectively brush your teeth and causes your gums to become inflamed.

Floss Your Teeth

Brushing your teeth is just one component of proper oral care. You have to floss your teeth as well. Brushing can't remove the food and bacteria trapped between your teeth and under your gumline. That's where dental floss comes in. It removes the debris that your toothbrush can't reach. Proper flossing helps you avoid plaque buildup. Your dentist in Parkland, FL, can help you learn the proper way to floss your teeth.

Cut Back on Sugar

Sugar attracts the bacteria that leads to tooth decay. For this reason, you should cut back on sugary drinks and foods. Refined sugar, the kind of sugar in sweetened cereal or candy, is the worst kind of sugar for your teeth. Eating too many of these sweet foods can cause a number of dental problems.

Schedule an Appointment

Proper at-home oral care combined with regular dental checkups will protect your teeth and prevent any serious dental issues. To schedule an appointment with your dentist in Parkland, FL, contact Dr. Hector Naranjo of Evolution Dentistry: (954) 255-8055.

Struggling with tooth loss? Then you need to learn about dental implants, the most stable and reliable dental replacement available today. Available here at Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, FL, read on to see what dental implants can do for your smile!

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are synthetic oral appliances that replace missing teeth. Furthermore, implants are specifically anchored to the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots, thereby creating an incredibly stable foundation for an artificial tooth.

Implants are made of a biocompatible titanium post that doesn't undergo tissue rejection. This procedure has a 95% success rate, making it one of the most successful procedures today.

Who's a good candidate for implants?

Fortunatly, most people are eligible to receive implants. You simply need a healthy immune system, a strong oral care regimen, and the proper bone density.

What does the procedure consist of?

Your Parkland dentist begins the procedure by first numbing the area and removing any remaining tooth structure lost because of an accident or extreme tooth decay. The dentist then inserts the dental implant and seals the surgical area for 3 to 6 months areas. This is crucial to allow the post to fuse to the jawbone. Once this period has ended, an abutment and screw will be attached to the post, and a crown is fixed atop of the entire apparatus.

How do you care for your dental implants?

You should brush and floss everyday to remove food debris. This will eliminate plaque and tartar to prevent tooth decay.

Invisalign is an exciting option for straightening your smile discreetly. What makes Invisalign so discreet is the use of clear aligner trays toInvisalign move the teeth. Since the aligners are clear, they are barely noticeable to others. At Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, Dr. Hector Naranjo is your dentist for Invisalign.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign can be used to straighten crooked teeth, close small gaps between teeth, and even correct some types of bite issues, such as overbites or underbites. Invisalign moves the teeth using a set of two aligner trays, one for each row of teeth. The trays gently exert pressure on the teeth and gradually nudge them in the desired direction. Aligner trays are custom made for each patient for the best results.

Each set of aligner trays is worn for a few weeks and is then replaced with a new set. With every new set of trays, the teeth move closer to the final desired position. Most patients wear Invisalign’s aligner trays for somewhere between nine and 15 months to achieve the desired results. At our office in Parkland, our dentist can help you decide if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers several benefits. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign’s aligner trays are also comfortable and convenient because they are removable. The custom aligner trays are made from a flexible plastic material that is clear, which is what makes Invisalign so discreet. Being made from a flexible plastic material makes it possible for the trays to fit comfortably over the top and bottom rows of teeth. Further, a comfortable fit is also achieved by custom creating the aligner trays for each individual patient.

In addition to being discreet, another exciting benefit of Invisalign is that the aligner trays are removable. The trays can be removed when eating and drinking, which prevents food items from becoming trapped between the trays and teeth. Further, the convenience of being able to remove the trays to brush and floss the teeth makes it easier to thoroughly clean the teeth and maintain good oral hygiene.

If you are ready to straighten your smile the discreet way, Invisalign is the way to go. To learn more about how Invisalign could help you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Naranjo, your Parkland dentist, by calling Evolution Dentistry at (954) 255-8055.

A screw is inserted in the post to secure the abutment over the titanium post.

Dr. Naranjo seals your gums in the surgical area and allows the titanium post to fuse, osseointegrate, with your jawbone for the coming 3 to 6 months.
