When you look at yourself in the mirror and smile, what are your initial thoughts? Do you see a bright, beautiful smile with straight and healthy teeth, or do you see a smile that is less than stellar; with crooked, misaligned, misshapen, or – even worse – unhealthy teeth?
If so, you may be wondering what options may be best to remedy this issue and which dental professional would be the best provider to guide you toward a new and perfect smile.
Fortunately, depending on what you need, either a general dentist or an oral surgeon in Omaha, NE can point you in the right direction for the best care.
Choosing the Right Dental Professional for the Job
If you are experiencing discolored teeth or in need of a thorough, expert-driven tooth cleaning, then booking an appointment with a general dentist may be the best choice.
General dentists are great at maintaining oral health and offering teeth whitening services to ensure your smile is at its best!
Alternatively, if there are any damaged or diseased teeth, an oral surgeon may be the best choice to determine if there is a need for tooth removal and replacement with restorative treatments such as dental implants.
In fact, oral surgeons often specialize in various restorative treatment services, including:
(a great treatment for patients who want dental implants but may not have a sufficient amount of bone needed for the implants to be placed successfully and potentially last a lifetime)
(a great way to ease pain and anxiety during surgical procedures)
(a superb way to enhance the experience during oral surgical procedures to provide increased accuracy, safety, effective planning, and recovery)
Factors to Consider When Selecting
Selecting the best dental professional for your overall health, whether it be a general dentist or an oral surgeon, is very important. Factors such as experience, education, and access to modern technology are great things to consider during your selection process.
Fortunately, dental professionals in Omaha, NE offer these highly important factors and more.
