Root Canals are Effective at Saving Teeth

At our office we pride ourselves on offering the most precise and gentle care, keeping you relaxed throughout every visit. We utilize advanced technology and methods to provide stress-free solutions for all your dental needs, including root canal, a procedure used to strengthen and preserve the teeth.

Underneath the outermost biting surface of each tooth is a layer of core tissues, blood vessels and nerves, which comprise the dental pulp. When a tooth has been compromised by decay or injury, bacteria can enter and infect the dental pulp, leading to the uncomfortable symptoms of a toothache. If you experience sensitivity to hot and cold, pain when biting down, or any type of oral discomfort, it is important to contact our office immediately. We will promptly and accurately examine your teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure to determine an effective course of action, if root canal procedure or some other type of dental care is needed.

With a root canal procedure, a dental infection can be treated, the discomfort of a toothache alleviated and subsequent damage to your oral health prevented. Throughout the course of your root canal procedure our dentist and staff will keep you informed and at ease, addressing any anxiety or concerns that may arise during treatment. Following the procedure, we may recommend placing a dental crown over your treated tooth, to help strengthen and protect it, and to restore its function and appearance. A tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.

Whether you need a root canal or any kind of dental service, it’s important to find a dentist who prioritizes your comfort and tailors treatment to meet your particular needs. At our office, we provide the highest quality care, making it easier to maintain a lifetime of excellent oral health. To learn more about root canal therapy and the other services we provide, give us a call today.

The Importance of Routine Care

At our office, we maintain a position at the forefront of the latest advances in care to offer patients treatment that is more precise, convenient, and comfortable than ever before. When it comes to smile care, our team of professionals is well equipped to help you and every member of your family enjoy optimal oral health.

Here are three great reasons why regular checkups to our office are essential for a healthy smile:

  1. With routine checkups, we can help prevent dental disease or treat it early in its onset. While a mirror allows you to look at the surface of your smile, underneath the outer layer of your teeth and beneath the gums, there may be a lot more going on. By performing a comprehensive exam, we’re able to detect and treat emerging dental problems such as the onset of gum disease or dental decay.  We can also take measures to help prevent these issues from happening at all.  

         

  1. We’ll check signs of medical conditions, suspicious lesions, ulcerations, or oral cancer. We’re always on the lookout for any unusual signs or symptoms affecting your oral health and overall well-being. As part of a comprehensive exam (and if indicated at other visits), we perform an oral cancer screening to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. We also check for any oral manifestations of other medical conditions or problematic lesions.

 

  1. Dedicated to helping patients maintain optimal oral health, we emphasize the importance of preventive care. With a professional dental cleaning, we can remove the plaque and tartar between the teeth and gums that your toothbrush or floss may have missed. Not only will your smile feel better after a thorough cleaning, but by removing any accumulated plaque, tartar, and debris, your risk of cavities and gum disease is reduced. Also, as part of our comprehensive program of preventive care, we’ll show you what you can do at home to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

 Committed to excellence in oral care

At our office, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services to meet the needs of every member of your family. Our superior reputation is based on providing experienced and compassionate care with an unparalleled level of skill to achieve the best results for all our patients. For more information on the many services that we provide, give us a call today.

Say Goodbye To Bad Breath!

Halitosis, otherwise known as bad breath, can take a toll on your social life and self-confidence. While bad breath might be the result of an underlying medical or digestive issue, a medication, or smoking, it is often due to oral health issues such as periodontal disease, dry mouth, or an infection. Bad breath can also be caused by something that you eat or drink.

At our office, we care about the oral health of all our patients and offer these tips to help keep your breath smelling fresh — and you feeling confident!

  1. Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth at least twice each day. Brushing after mealtimes will remove the food particles that can taint your breath. Rinse your mouth with water or a mouthwash to remove any lingering debris.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Halitosis is a common symptom of dry mouth. When your mouth is dry, it doesn’t have enough saliva to wash away food particles and bacteria. Correcting dry mouth can be as simple as staying hydrated.
  3. Avoid Food and Drink Triggers: Certain foods and drinks can make your breath smell bad, such as garlic, coffee, onions, and alcohol. The substances that impact your breath can enter your bloodstream and travel to your lungs, waiting for you to breathe out and spread their odors.
  4. Quit Smoking: Smoking is not only hazardous to your health, but it’s also bad for your breath. Foul-smelling smoke particles linger in the mouth, throat, and lungs long after you stub out a cigarette, which creates an unappealing stale aroma.
  5. See Your Dentist Regularly: Bad breath can also be a symptom of poor oral health. That’s why regular checkups are so important. Your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and diagnose any problems in your mouth that could easily turn into major ones if left untreated.

Our office consistently offers the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.

Same-Day Crowns Offer More Convenience and Comfort for Dental Restorations

At our office, we make it a point to keep pace with the most advanced technology and methods to give you a more convenient dental healthcare experience. With same-day crowns, our team of professionals can complete your customized, permanent dental restoration in just one visit. Our caring team of professionals values your time and strives to provide solutions that are tailored to meet the demands of your busy life.

If your tooth has been severely compromised and cannot be restored with a filling, our dentist may recommend placing a dental crown to restore the tooth’s function and appearance. While a filing replaces a small portion of a decayed or damaged tooth, a dental crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Placing a dental crown helps protect and strengthen the underlying tooth structure, helping to maintain it in the dental arch. Using the latest in imaging techniques, our dentist takes an accurate set of digital impressions to design your crown to fit precisely. We then use these images to fabricate your permanent crown on-site, all in the same visit.

Same-day crowns eliminate the need for a temporary crown or a follow-up appointment, making it more convenient than ever to receive the quality restorations you deserve. We never compromise on service or materials; our crowns are milled from the latest generation of durable, ceramic materials, for the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking results. Once your crown is placed, it is easy to care for, requiring the same brushing, flossing and periodic checkups as your natural teeth.

If you require a dental crown, but don’t want to deal with multiple visits to the dentist, messy impressions or the uncertainty of lab results, visit our office for the convenience of same-day crowns. We are committed to providing stress-free solutions for all your dental needs. For more information or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today.

Managing A Dental Emergency

Emergency dental care is a service we hope you’ll never need- but if you do, our office is here for you! As providers of experienced, and compassionate care we’re well equipped to get you back on the road to oral health.

Dental emergencies can come about in any number of ways. Your discomfort may be due to an injury to the oral facial area, the acute flare-up of a longstanding problem, or the result of the sudden onset of seemingly inexplicable pain. While there are many reasons for seeking urgent dental care, some of the most common ones include severe toothaches, chipped or fractured teeth, problematic wisdom teeth, a dental abscess, a broken filling, a loosened crown, or a broken denture. Whatever the case may be, it’s essential to contact our office promptly for care. If left untreated many dental emergencies can quickly worsen, resulting in more severe consequences to your oral health and overall well-being.

Although many dental emergencies are associated with pain, there are those that are uncomfortable in other ways, also requiring timely care to help you return to your daily routine. For instance, a lost crown or broken denture can leave embarrassing gaps in one’s smile and make it more difficult to speak clearly and chew. Not to worry, if faced with one of these types of dental problems, rest assured that you’ll receive the swift service you’re hoping for at our office. With patient care and comfort as our top priorities, we’ll carefully explain your treatment options and provide the precise and gentle care required to get your smile back on track.

Preventing Tooth Decay

According to the World Health Organization, 60-90% of children worldwide, and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities. Although these numbers are alarmingly high, your risk of tooth decay is significantly lowered with proper oral care. At our office, we offer a comprehensive selection of preventive and dental services to help patients of all ages maintain optimal oral health.

Why a cavity develops and the importance of preventive care

 Cavities form when dental plaque is not consistently removed from around the teeth and gums. Your risk for tooth decay also increases if your diet is high in sugary sweets, acidic foods, and beverages, or if dry mouth, teeth grinding, receding gums, and deeply grooved dental enamel are present.

 

As skilled and experienced providers of care, we emphasize the importance of dental prevention as the best way to maintain optimal oral health. We also encourage routine checkups to allow for the early detection and treatment of dental disease. While cavities are almost entirely preventable, it’s essential to treat any developing tooth decay early in its onset. In this way, further damage and more severe consequences to your oral health and overall well-being can be avoided.

Helping our patients maintain healthy smiles

 When you visit our office for a checkup, you can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands. We employ the most advanced dental technology and techniques to carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or developing problems. In addition to an assessment of your oral health, every exam performed by our dentist is accompanied by a thorough, professional teeth cleaning to remove any harmful accumulations of dental plaque or tartar that you may have missed while brushing or flossing. We’ll also review your home care routine and offer guidance as to how you can clean and care for your teeth more effectively between checkups.

Solutions to protect the health of your smile

 Although tooth decay is a widespread oral health concern, with periodic visits to our office, cavities can be prevented. At our office, we provide personalized, state-of-the-art solutions for all of your dental healthcare needs. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.

9 Tips for Good Oral Hygiene

Did you know that your smile can tell a lot about you? Not only it is an indication of your mood at the moment, it can give dentists a clue to your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to such complications as oral and facial pain, gum disease and a variety of mouth infections that can affect major organs of the body.

That’s why practicing good oral hygiene and seeing a dentist regularly is so important for people of all ages. At our office our skilled professionals are dedicated to keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Habits that promote good oral health:

  1. Brush twice a day: Brush for at least two minutes, using fluoridated toothpaste.
  2. Floss daily: It removes plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach.
  3. Replace your toothbrush: Do this every three months or when it appears warn.
  4. Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This is one of the most effective ways to detect the early signs of gum disease.
  5. Limit soda, coffee and alcohol: Excess amounts can cause tooth decay.
  6. Drink milk: Milk contains calcium, which strengthens teeth and builds stronger enamel.
  7. Some carbs are okay: Despite their popularity, low-carb diets can cause bad breath. A balanced, dental-healthy diet can help reduce tooth decay.
  8. Take a daily dose of vitamins C and D: These vitamins help support the absorption of healthy mouth minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, which support the bone and gum tissue, keeping it healthy. This is an easy way to maintain dental hygiene and fight gum disease.
  9. Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco: These are known to contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

Committed to maintaining your great smile!

What is Preventive Dental Care?

Did you know that according to statistics, more than 90% of adults ages 20-64 have had a cavity in their lifetime? And, tooth decay doesn’t just affect grownups. Cavities also affect the youngest members of the population; with 78% of children having had a cavity by the time they’re 17 years of age. While these percentages are alarmingly high, tooth decay is an almost entirely preventable condition. With routine checkups and care, our dentist can help reduce your risk of dental disease. At our office, we utilize the most advanced technology and methods of care to help patients of all ages enjoy optimal oral health.

Tooth decay is caused by plaque, which is a sticky biofilm that gathers continuously on your teeth. The problem is that plaque harbors thousands of colonies of bacteria, some of which are responsible for cavities and gum disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar, are important steps for preventing any buildup of plaque and protecting your teeth from cavities, it’s also important to see your dentist for routine care. Plaque can gather in the difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums where it can only be reached with a professional teeth cleaning. As part of our comprehensive program of preventive care, we thoroughly remove any residual plaque and tartar, and offer guidance as to how you can improve your daily oral hygiene at home. As an added level of protection against tooth decay, we offer pediatric patients periodic fluoride treatments, and dental sealants.

For patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. In this way, we can monitor the ongoing oral health of our patients. If a cavity is detected, our dentist will gently and precisely remove the decay, then restore the tooth with a dental filling. At our practice, we utilize the latest generation of tooth-colored restorative materials, for the most natural looking and seamless results of care.

At our office, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.

Dental Implants Help Restore Confidence in Your Smile

So, you’ve lost a tooth. Now what to do? Anybody who has experienced the loss of a tooth whether due to injury, decay, or disease can tell you that it is a bit of a shock realizing there’s a gap in their mouth that not only looks strange, but feels strange too.

Take heart: a dental implant is one of the most popular and effective ways for you to reestablish a complete and beautiful smile. At our office, our experienced staff of professionals offers state-of-the-art care and will custom fit your dental implant to give you a fully restored and dazzling smile.

Dental implants offer a number of benefits to both your dental and overall health. Since a dental implant acts in much the same way as the root of your natural tooth, once it becomes fully integrated into the surrounding jawbone, it maintains bone structure, keeps adjacent teeth from occupying the missing space, and helps to preserve your normal facial contours. The biggest benefit of all is that dental implants come the closest — out of all the teeth replacement options available today — to replicating the natural look, feel, and function of natural teeth. By taking advantage of this advanced technology at our offices, you are restoring so much more than your teeth—you are renewing your confidence in your smile!

At our office, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services to meet the needs of every member of your family. Our reputation for excellence is based on providing experienced and compassionate care with an unparalleled level of skill to give our patients the very best treatment results. For more information on dental implants and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
