Exams and X-rays
The exam is your introduction to dental care, a way for the dentist to spot early signs of dental problems, such as gingivitis or cavities. Caught early, these conditions became much less painful and more manageable.
Dental X-rays are the best diagnostic tool available to maintain dental health. They provide essential insight not visible to the naked eye. Hidden abnormalities or conditions lying beneath the surface of your teeth and gums can be discovered and addressed before they get out of hand.
After losing our “baby teeth,” the next set of teeth will ideally last us throughout our adult lives. Not all of us are so lucky, however. There are several reasons why you may eventually need a tooth extraction: The tooth is severely damaged by decay. You suffer from periodontal disease. Your tooth is impacted. You suffer from overcrowded teeth. You have been injured.
While it is nobody’s first choice, dental extractions’ primary functions are to help reduce pain and inflammation as well as stave off infection and other oral complications. Your dentist will make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision on the best treatment for you.
If you have had to deal with significant teeth loss, your dentist may recommend dentures. Your overall oral health will be the deciding factor, not your age. Many people with dentures are over age 65, however, younger people may need them too.
Dentures do take some getting used to. They can be cumbersome initially. Early on, your dentist will probably schedule frequent visits to check your dentures, making sure the fit is appropriate and to discuss any challenges you are having. In any case, your dentist is your partner in oral health, ready and willing to help however possible.
Dental fillings are often used to remove decay, repair minor fractures, restore worn down teeth, or smooth out their surface. This dental treatment can improve the comfort of biting and chewing as well as teeth sensitivity for patients suffering from damaged or weakened enamel, greatly restoring their oral health.
When filling cavities, several different types of dental fillings may be used. To determine which filling is the right for you, your dentist will consider various factors, such as the location and severity of the cavity, your medical history, aesthetics, your preferences, and budget. Your doctor will go over all the options with you and help you make the best determination for yourself.
Crowns and Bridges
As we age, our teeth become more susceptible to damage and decay. As they weaken, they may crack or chip, which can negatively affect your smile, pose problems with chewing, and have an adverse effect on your oral health. If you are missing teeth, or if you suffer from damaged teeth, installing a crown or a bridge may be a good option for you.
Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices (unlike dentures that are removable). They attach to your natural teeth or implants and can only be removed by your dentist. Crowns help repair broken, chipped, decayed, ground down or misshapen teeth. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth, so long as there are teeth in front of and behind the missing tooth. Dental restorations will boost your confidence, increase the functionality of your teeth, and give you your beautiful smile back.
