Dentistry By Shane Nelson, DDS provides many treatment options. At Shane Nelson DDS in Overland Park, we believe our work should improve a patient’s appearance, oral hygiene, and overall health. Dental concerns such as tooth damage, decay, or even loss, are common occurrences. However, these issues can negatively affect an individual’s quality of life and self-esteem.
Tooth damage, decay, and loss lead to a host of problems, including misalignment, jaw pain, headaches, and periodontal disease. As a result, we can resolve discomfort and improve the overall oral health of our patients.
- Improves Physical Appearance and Boosts Self-Esteem
Dentists encounter many misshapen, chipped, stained, and even missing teeth. Feeling self-conscious about one’s teeth affects personal relations and even career opportunities. We find the right cosmetic procedure for each of our patients that will benefit and enhance their appearance. No One should have to hide or fear what others will think about their smile.
- Recovery Time
Patients often worry about how long it will take to recover from cosmetic dental procedures and how much discomfort they will be in. Discomfort is minimal during recovery, and patients can resume daily activities immediately.
- Speech and Jaw Function
When a tooth decays, the pain can affect an individual’s ability to bite, chew, and even speak. Losing a tooth can cause the remaining teeth to shift to compensate for the open space. Missing teeth can cause a collapsed bite, often time resulting in TMJ concerns.
