Beasley Dentistry, headed by Dr. Brad Beasley, provides Invisalign in Huntsville, AL, and Athens, AL. We are excited to provide this effective treatment to our patients and have found it to be a great treatment option for many. If you are interested in teeth realignment, give us a call today and find out more.

Advantages of Invisalign Treatment in Huntsville, AL, and Athens, AL

Dr. Beasley and the staff at Beasley Dentistry provide Invisalign in Huntsville, AL, and Athens, AL. This treatment is effective in properly aligning teeth and is an option that we suggest to many of our patients.

When you have misaligned or missing, crooked, or broken teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, orthodontic treatments can help to correct this issue. If you have noticed that you aren't smiling as much as you used to, it's time to take a look at Invisalign.

When we use Invisalign as a treatment, it will improve your smile, but it won't address jaw issues. Because every tray is custom-made and is used to realign your teeth, you will soon have the smile that you've always wanted.

Jaw issues can lead to more significant problems when they are not treated properly. There is no reason to wait to begin treatment, as the sooner the problem is fixed, the better. If you are suffering from jaw issues, Invisalign may not be the right treatment for you. If it's time to address your teeth and jaw issues, we suggest scheduling an appointment to review your treatment options.

Because everyone's needs are different, formulating an effective treatment plan often requires a comprehensive examination. If you are interested in orthodontics but also have jaw issues that need treatment, it's a good idea to review all of the options that are available to you.

Sedation dentistry from your dentist in Athens, AL, can help you have a relaxing dental appointment. If you suffer from dental anxiety, it can be a big deal. Dental anxiety can keep you from taking care of your smile. Necessary dental treatment may be delayed, resulting in costly and painful dental issues. Now, you can relax! Dental sedation can help you feel calm about visiting the dentist.

Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry offers a wide range of dental services, including dental sedation, to help you have a relaxing dental appointment. Dr. Beasley proudly serves residents of Athens, and Huntsville, AL, and he can help you and your smile too.

Dental anxiety can result in some very real physiological changes including an increased heart rate, rapid breathing, hyperventilation, sweating, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Dental sedation can help you and your body relax, so you can receive the dental care you need and deserve.

Sedation dentistry can help you:

  • Have a painless dental appointment
  • Have a relaxing, calming dental visit
  • Sleep through your dental treatment
  • Get needed dental work completed in fewer appointments

Dr. Beasley offers safe, effective oral sedation in the form of a pill, which you take one hour before your appointment. The oral sedative will make you feel tired and relaxed. After you are seated in our office, you may be placed on nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas” which can help strengthen the effect of the oral sedative.

You may not remember much of your appointment afterward, and you may feel slightly tired throughout the day. It’s important to bring a driver with you to drive you home after your appointment because you will still be under the effects of sedation.

It’s time to get some relief from dental anxiety by choosing dental sedation. To find out more about dental sedation options and how dental sedation can help you have a relaxing dental appointment, call Dr. Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL, at (888) 860-5114.

How Dr. Brad Beasley helps solve the denture problems of that living in Huntsville and Athens, AL!

Loose or poorly fitting dentures are a common problem for many people. In addition to causing discomfort, making it difficult to eat, and denturescreating potentially embarrassing social and professional situations, loose dentures can irritate your gums and the inside of your mouth. However, there are a few steps that you can take to ensure that your dentures continue to fit and function properly. For more information, you can turn to Dr. Brad Beasley, a dentist who proudly offers comprehensive dentistry services to the residents of Huntsville and Athens, AL!

 

Fix Your Loose Dentures!

Dealing with the aftermath of tooth loss can be difficult enough without having to worry about loose dentures. While modern dentures are designed to offer a secure and comfortable fit, periodic adjustments will be necessary over time to account for changes to your gums, which can shrink over time, especially when there's bone loss.

 

Can Loose Dentures be Prevented?

You may not necessarily be able to prevent common problems like bone resorption (shrinking gums) after tooth loss, but practicing good oral and general health habits and following the care instructions for your dentures can help to ensure a secure and comfortable fit for as long as possible.

The best way to ensure that your dentures continue to fit and function properly, (as well as preserve your overall oral health) is to keep up with your preventive dental care appointments. Dentures usually start to become loose gradually over a period of time, so speak to your dentist as soon as you begin to feel them shifting in your mouth or if you experience any discomforting friction, especially while eating or speaking.

In most cases, the dentist can make adjustments to your dentures to improve the fit or repair mechanical damage so that it fits properly. Always speak to your dentist before attempting any do-it-yourself denture repairs, for DIY treatments often end up damaging the appliances further.

Invisalign Adult Clear BracesWhen you already feel self-conscious about your smile, the last thing you may want to do is draw more attention to your teeth by wearing metal braces. Invisalign, offered by your dentist, Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL, and serving Huntsville, AL, offers a much more discreet straightening option.

How Invisalign Works

Traditional braces use metal wires and brackets to improve the alignment of your teeth. Although metal and ceramic braces are effective, they're not the most attractive straightening option.

Invisalign offers a more subtle way to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite problems. The system uses a series of clear, removable aligner trays custom-made to fit your teeth. Trays exert constant pressure on your teeth, gently improving their alignment.

Benefits of Invisalign treatment

Invisalign offers several important benefits, including:

  • Improved Self-Esteem: Your teeth play an important role in your self-esteem. When they're crooked or protrude too much, you may feel ill at ease in social situations. Straightening your teeth offers an excellent way to boost your self-esteem. In an Invisalign/Harris Poll survey, 92 percent of adults who straightened their teeth reported that straight teeth were an important factor in confidence.
  • Almost No Change to Your Appearance: Invisalign's transparent aligner trays are designed to make your orthodontic treatment practically unnoticeable.
  • No Food Limitations: Traditional brace wearers must avoid hard or sticky foods that can break brace wires or become stuck in them. You won't face any limitations when you choose Invisalign. Before you eat, you'll remove your aligners, then rinse them and put them back in your mouth after you finish eating.
  • Convenience: Your aligners can be removed occasionally if you play sports or are attending a special event. The aligners are designed to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.
  • Shorter Treatment Time for Adults: Many adults only need to wear Invisalign aligners for about one year.
  • Easy Oral Hygiene Routine: Brushing and flossing around brace wires can add significant time to your oral hygiene routine if you wear metal and ceramic braces. No changes are needed with Invisalign, as you'll remove the trays before you brush and floss.

Are you ready to improve your smile with Invisalign? Call your dentist, Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL, and serving Huntsville, AL, at (888) 860-5114 to schedule an appointment.

Dental ImplantHow Dental Implants from Your Huntsville Dentist Can Complete Your Smile

Dental implants are one of the most popular options to replace missing teeth and give you back your smile. There are many reasons why dental implants are so prominent, from their beauty and inconspicuous look to their high success rate and stability. When you choose dental implants from Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry, one of the top dentists serving the Huntsville area, know that you are investing in both a cosmetically pleasing product, as well as a great boost to your oral health

So, What Makes Implants So Great?

Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Being made from completely natural-looking materials, people will never even know that you replacement teeth! Your complete, beautiful smile will be restored.

Natural good looks aren’t the only benefit of dental implants, they are also,

  • Beautiful: The implant crown is made of light-reflective material that looks just like tooth enamel. They also repel stains so your dental implants will continue to enhance your smile for years.
  • Highly Successful: According to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, dental implants boast a success rate of over 95 percent, making them the most successful surgical implant.
  • Completely Stable: Due to being fully embedded in the jawbone, dental implants will never move around, unlike partials and dentures.
  • Healthy: Just like natural teeth, dental implants can easily be cleaned by brushing and flossing.
  • Convenient: Unlike partials and dentures, do not need to be taken out.

Dental implants can replace one missing tooth, or your entire smile. They can also provide support for a denture, which is snapped on over the implants and is then referred to as an overdenture.

Additionally, other tooth replacement methods can actually cause supporting bone to diminish over time. Dental implants work differently: by fusing with the jawbone and locking into place, they actually promote bone growth and can help restore the natural contours of your face and jawline. Thanks to dental implants, you can restore both your oral health and your smile's beauty!
