Invisible Braces

Invisible Braces – Sheboygan, WI

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect invisible braces are the clear and simple way to straighten your teeth so you can show off your smile!

Looking for an alternative to metal braces? ClearCorrect is the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort—every reason to smile. With ClearCorrect, your dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.

How does it work?

ClearCorrect makes straightening your teeth easy from start to finish.

Dr. Huberty will then evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and Dr. Huberty establish ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you, Dr. Huberty will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect uses in manufacturing your custom aligners.

Your Custom Treatment Plan
Dr. Huberty sends your records—your impressions, photos, and x-rays—to ClearCorrect with a prescription for your custom aligners. ClearCorrect uses your records to create exact 3D models of your teeth. Then working with your doctor every step of the way, and following the precise instructions provided on your prescription, ClearCorrect maps out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment that takes your teeth from where they are currently to where you and your doctor want them to end up. Once completed, you and your doctor will be able to preview the projected results of your treatment in your “treatment set-up,” a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.

Your Aligners are Computer-Crafted
When you and your doctor are satisfied with the projected results shown in your treatment set-up, the manufacturing process begins. Using the latest digital mapping and molding technology, ClearCorrect creates your custom aligners with computer precision. ClearCorrect then sends your aligners to your doctor for delivery to you.

Progress Wearing Your Aligners
You’ll wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily tooth care, such as brushing and flossing. Your ClearCorrect aligners are so clear they are barely noticeable so they won’t have an impact on your day to day life. Aligner by aligner, you’ll be able to see the difference as your teeth slowly adjust and align to your target smile. You’ll visit your doctor periodically for checkups to see how you’re progressing until you eventually have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.

The Choice Is Clear!
With the results and convenience ClearCorrect offers and the advantages it has over other treatment options, it’s an easy decision. With ClearCorrect you can get the obvious benefits and confidence you’ll enjoy with straight teeth so you too can show off your smile.

Mini Implants for Dentures

Laugh, Talk, Live

Is your loose denture causing you to:

  • miss out on life’s simple pleasures?
  • miss eating your favorite foods?
  • be afraid to laugh, smile or speak in public?

Visit Dr. Huberty in the morning, have the mini implants placed in less than two hours, then go out and enjoy your favorite lunch. Eat comfortably, have a pleasant conversation, laugh and talk with confidence. Your denture feels secure and is being held firmly in place.

The most effective use of this unique dental product is stabilization of a mandibular denture. There are approximately 30,000,000 people in the United States who are “edentulous” (literally meaning lack of teeth) who struggle daily with prosthetic devices. A majority suffers a great deal of discomfort as a result of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Moreover, it’s not uncommon for family members to complain about a denture wearer’s disagreeable breath as a result of food being trapped and decaying under their denture prosthesis.

Successful placement of the MDI addresses and solves all of these social and practical problems and concerns.

TMJ Disorder

Dr. Huberty has extensive training in TMJ and is a Specialist in this area. Once you have had your Comprehensive TMJ Exam, a customized treatment plan if needed will be presented to you.

What Are the Symptoms of TMD?
People with TMD can experience severe pain and discomfort that can be temporary or last for many years. More women than men experience TMD, and TMD is seen most commonly in people between the ages of 20 and 40.

Common symptoms of TMD include:

  • Pain or tenderness in the face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide
  • Limited ability to open the mouth very wide
  • Jaws that get “stuck” or “lock” in the open- or closed-mouth position
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth (which may or may not be accompanied by pain) or chewing
  • A tired feeling in the face
  • Difficulty chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite – as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • May occur on one or both sides of the face

Other common symptoms of TMD include toothaches, headaches, neck aches, dizziness, earaches, hearing problems, upper shoulder pain, and ringing in the ears (tinnitus).

How Is TMD Diagnosed?
Because many other conditions can cause similar symptoms to TMD – including a toothache, sinus problems, arthritis, or gum disease – Dr. Huberty and his assistant will conduct a careful patient history and complete TMJ examination to determine the cause of your symptoms and make the appropriate recommendations for you.

Implants

Dental Implants – Sheboygan, WI

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

Bridges

Bridges – Sheboygan, WI

A bridge is a procedure which replaces one or more teeth. When an individual wants a tooth replacement option that stays in the mouth a bridge or an implant are your two choices. The chief advantages of a bridge over an implant option would be less surgery, less expense and overall shortened treatment timelines. A properly fitted bridge replaces lost teeth with no let down in esthetics or function while restoring a comfortable and stable bite well into the future.

Crowns

Crowns

procedure-crowns

Crowns – Sheboygan, WI

A crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. A crown is made to look like your tooth. Many people call it a cap.

Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or damaged a great deal by decay. As a result, a filling can’t replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also can be used to hold a bridge in place. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshapen or badly discolored teeth.

Before placing a crown, your dentist may need to build up a foundation to support it. A foundation is needed if large areas of the tooth is decayed, damaged or missing.

Your dentist will also take an impression of the teeth above or below the tooth that will receive the crown. The purpose is to make sure the crown will fit into your normal bite.

The impressions are sent to the lab, where the crown is made. During that time, you will have a temporary crown placed. These crowns are usually made of plastic. They are made in advance by the laboratory or made by the dentist during your preparation visit. Then the dentist fits the temporary crown to your tooth.

These crowns are not meant to last for a long time. In some cases, however, a temporary crown can stay in place for a year or longer. If it needs to last longer, a lab-made plastic crown is best. It is stronger and will last longer than a temporary plastic crown that is made by the dentist.

Temporary cement is used to keep the crown in place. It is special cement that is designed to be weak. This allows your dentist to easily remove the temporary crown at each visit as your permanent crown is fitted.

At a second visit, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and test the permanent one. Sometimes crowns need additional polishing or glazing or some other adjustment before they are placed. Once the crown is ready, it’s cemented to your tooth.
