Dental Crowns

Crowns are employed when you have a tooth that is weakened by cracks or decay. Crowns are usually made from porcelain, porcelain fused metal, or full gold and is placed on top of the old tooth to protect it from further damage. A crown is placed in two appointments with your Idaho Falls dentist, one to measure for the crown and the second to place the permanent crown.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a product that works like metal braces but may be removed when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth. Your Invisalign braces are worn for two weeks at a time, at which point they are resized. Each resizing brings you closer to perfect alignment. Comfort Care Dental will give you a free exam and consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Dentist says coronavirus crisis is a ‘disaster’ for dental care in Cornwall

A dentist in Cornwall says that the coronavirus crisis has created a “major problem for dentistry in Cornwall, in fact it’s a disaster”.

Jason Smithson, on behalf of the British Association of Private Dentistry, has hit out that there is only one emergency Urgent Dental Care Centre operating for the whole of Cornwall, offering only limited treatment.

The dentist says that people in the county are in agony and not receiving the treatment they desperately need and that many dental businesses could be bankrupt within weeks leaving patients without access to care.

Dr Smithson says that the situation is exceptionally disastrous for Cornwall as it already has well-documented access problems for patients, which are being exacerbated by the current situation.

“We now have perhaps the most major problem in the history of dentistry in Cornwall,” said Dr Smithson. 

“We only have one urgent dental care centre offering emergency treatment for
