A Healthy Smile Will Help You Look Younger

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, Newton, MAEveryone sees physical changes with age. Unfortunately, your teeth are not immune to aging either. According to Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist and director of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, "Age can bring many changes in your smile. While skin experiences a loss of elasticity and collagen, the teeth and gums go through age-related wear and tear, which can accentuate an aged appearance". The signs of an aging smile are tooth color, wear and loss of gum tissue. But age does not have to show in your smile and your smile does not have to show your age. Your smile does not have to make you look older, in fact, it can make you look younger. With the right dental treatments, you can transform your smile and take years off your appearance.

Since 1986 Dr. Johnson has been the 'go-to' dentist for Boston's corporate leaders, sports figures and people who are in front of others. All demand a naturally radiant smile without the appearance of major dental work. He is regarded by many as Boston's Best Prosthodontist and is comfortable working on Boston's most demanding people. His use of surgical, computer and prosthodontic techniques has made him a perennial "Top Dentist" in Boston Magazine's annual issue.

"As we age, teeth begin to wear. Worn teeth can negatively affect fullness in the face; enhancing already sagging facial features and making them appear even more aged. With age, the surfaces of your teeth may shorten from chewing, which can make the face and facial profile appear collapsed. This makes it appear older", says this 56 year old prosthodontist.

Veneers or crowns can be the optimal choice for correcting worn and misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers or dental crowns can lengthen and whiten your teeth. In cases where the patients’ lower and upper jaws have become too close together due to wear, the bite can be restored to bring back the length and to make the face much fuller and more proportioned.

How to Choose the Right Dentist

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 04, 2018

Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, Newton, Brookline, Wellesley, MANo matter what age you are, going to the dentist should be a regular part of your health routine. However, many people put off going to the dentist and many don’t have a regular dentist. According to Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist and director at Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, "avoiding the dentist can be one of the most costly mistakes one can make".

Putting off regular dental exams is not a good idea. In fact, dental disease does affect your overall health and can ultimately lead to more invasive dental procedures and more expense down the line. You may put it off because you have been going to the wrong dentist for years. Your dentist is like a shoe, they have to be the right fit for you.

You need to feel comfortable with your dentist and your dentist office. Many people have an innate fear of the dentist, but the fact is that taking care of your mouth and teeth is imperative. So you need a dentist who can be informative and relaxing, and in cases of dental anxiety, you need a dental office that can provide sedation dentistry.

Choose a dentist office with the latest in comprehensive dental care with expertise in restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, implant dentistry, general cleanings, and TMJ pain. This way, no matter what comes up you have an office that can handle it all. Most dentists now are using computers in their practice. Radiographs, CT-scans, computer milled crowns and fillings are commonplace. If your dentist is still practicing "old-school", you may be pleasantly surprised by recent advancements.

When searching for a new dentist, here are some suggestions.

It’s not as easy as seeing who is in your insurance provider pool. Ask friends and relatives for their recommendations, read reviews, and pay attention to how you are treated over the phone when you make the appointment. The internet can provide a wealth of information on a provider. During your appointment, be sure that the dentist explains any necessary procedures and why you need those procedures.
