Orthodontics: Braces and More
When you think of orthodontics, you likely imagine braces. While traditional braces are a popular form of orthodontics, dentists - and patients - are discovering other options to help align crooked smiles. Advances in technology have created options that make you look and feel good. Fredericksburg dentist Dr. Sean Kim specializes in two main forms of orthodontic care: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made of plastic that is clear, comfortable and smooth. They are worn over the teeth and made to gradually shift your teeth into place. You'll get a new set of aligners every two weeks throughout the duration of your treatment, which typically lasts a year or longer. Invisalign aligners are easy to care for. You take them out when you eat and brush your teeth and pop them back in when you're done. The result is a beautiful smile, and nobody will even know that you were straightening your teeth.

Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles takes the effectiveness of braces and modernizes them so that they are barely visible. With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles are barely visible. As the name implies, the treatment time is just six months. The price is also less expensive than traditional braces and Invisalign aligners. Specialized tray kits make appointments comfortable.

Dental Sedation

Taking the time to seek help from a qualified dental specialist when you are caring for your teeth can make all the difference in the results. Whether you are in need of oral surgery and require dental sedation or you need a deep cleaning, Sean Kim at River Club Dental Car in Fredericksburg, Virginia is ready to help you. With excellent care options and an experienced dental team, you can get the care that you need and the information that you want to make good decision for your dental health.

When Would Dental Sedation Be Necessary?
If you are in need of any kind of major oral work such as a tooth extraction, root canal or reconstruction, you may be in need of dental sedation to help you through the procedure. One of the options for dental sedation is to completely put the patient in a sleep state. It is far easier for the dental professional to get the job done if the patient is completely at ease and not feeling the process. Sedation isn’t the right option for every procedure or every individual. It’s important to discuss the options with your dental provider.

When you are ready to have that major oral procedure completed, talk to the dental specialist about your dental sedation options. Meet for a consultation to determine what the options are.
