By coming in for regularly scheduled dental care checkups and cleanings as part of your general dental treatments, you can help prevent serious problems ranging from cavities to gum disease from occurring later on.
Extractions and Wisdom Tooth Removal
Have a tooth that needs to be taken out? We can remove it, then provide a detailed series of steps for you to follow to speed up the healing process.
In the most severe cases, the plaque that causes tooth decay eats its way through the enamel that forms the outer layer of your tooth and attacks the soft core of tissue inside known as the pulp. If that happens, you may need a root canal to save the tooth. The procedure typically takes no more than three visits and is no more painful than having a filling. After the infected pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, shaped and sealed. With regular checkups and proper care, your restored tooth should last for the rest of your life.
Preventive Dental Cleanings
Having a professional dental cleaning once every six months can improve your appearance, your breath – even your overall health. Recent studies seem to suggest a link between poor oral hygiene and an increased risk of heart attack and strokes. By removing plaque before it hardens into tartar and irritates and infects your gum tissue, we can keep you and your teeth healthy. Once we thoroughly clean and floss your teeth, we’ll polish them to restore their natural luster.
By examining your teeth once every three to six months as per the American Dental Association’s® recommendation, we can identify and treat potential trouble spots before they become serious problems. We perform a thorough examination, evaluating the health of your teeth and gums. We then review any findings with you and the options needed to return you to excellent oral health.
If you don’t brush, floss and see your dentist regularly, tooth decay can set in and you could wind up with a cavity. We offer resin tooth colored fillings that not only look and feel better but also bond to the tooth to make it stronger. If you prefer, you can have composite (white) fillings that more closely match the color of your teeth.
