If you’ve lost a single tooth or a complete row of teeth, your dentist has likely asked you to consider treatment using dental implant supported replacement teeth. Dental implants are the only restoration option that allows the dentist to replace the lost roots of your missing teeth, and many patients can benefit from this innovative treatment method. Before you schedule your dental implant consultation, you should take the time to learn a little more about what makes you a good candidate for this restoration and what questions you should ask your dentist before getting started.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction also known as TMD occurs when the joint connecting your jaw (mandible) to the rest of your skull (temporal region) is strained or otherwise does not function correctly. TMJ disorder can be extremely painful, cause chronic headaches, earaches, hearing loss, inhibits speech and chewing, and can lead to numerous other medical concerns. Still, if you mention TMJ dysfunction or TMD, many people aren’t quite sure what it is. Common misconceptions are that this joint discomfort is untreatable, and that it is the same thing as lock jaw (an infection from the tetanus bacteria). If you’ve experienced jaw pain, swelling or difficulty opening and closing your mouth, you may wish to visit Dr. Leslie M. Metzger of Monet Aesthetic Dentistry to find out more about TMD and possible treatments. Our practice is dedicated to providing patients with outstanding preventive dental care, and that includes screenings for TMD at every six month checkup. Call to schedule your appointment with our caring Farmington, MI team today.

A great smile can change the way other perceive you. A recent unemployment study showed that people with straight, white teeth were more likely to get a job, were often paid more than those with crooked, stained or missing teeth, and a great smile also helped people get promotions. It may not be intentional, but we all make assumptions about people based on appearance. Hopefully, we can see past the surface level appearances as we get to know someone, but it doesn’t hurt to have an advantage. Invisalign can give you the beautiful, perfectly aligned smile you’ve always wanted. Call Monet Aethetic Dentistry in Framington, MI to find out more about Invisalign and all of our cosmetic dentistry services. We’re the Invsialign experts in the area, and always worth the short drive from Northville, Livonia and surrounding communities. (more…)

We don’t mean to sound too cliché, but the fact is “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” At Monet Aesthetic Dentistry, we’d much rather prevent a dental problem than cure what could become a bothersome and even expensive problem later. That’s why general and preventive dentistry is at the heart of our practice in Farmington, MI.
With this in mind and in keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Leslie M. Metzger would like to see you and your family members twice every year for dental checkups. At these checkups, we’ll carefully clean your teeth and examine each tooth for any visible signs of decay. We’ll assess the health of your gums and other soft tissue, and we’ll take x-rays when necessary to reveal hidden spots of decay or possible infection. (more…)
