About oral hygiene:

Taking care of your oral health through regular dental care means you’ll be able to talk, smile and eat comfortably. If you’re experiencing tooth loss or other health issues, or if you simply want to prevent problems, we want to help.

Oral health problems:

Cavities and gum disease are the most common problems. Both can be prevented with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.

Cavities:

Decay is caused by bacteria that collect on teeth and feed on the carbohydrates in our diet. The bacteria produce acid that wears away at the enamel on our teeth. If decay is left untreated, it can cause pain, infection and even tooth loss. Protect your teeth against decay by brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, visiting your dentist regularly, and avoiding sugary foods.

Gum disease:

Gum disease, also known as gingivitis, is where the gums become swollen, sore or infected. Gum disease is very common. If you have gum disease, your gums may bleed when you brush your teeth and you may have bad breath. In severe cases, a condition called periodontitis can develop. It affects the tissues that support teeth and hold them in place. If periodontitis is not treated, the bone in your jaw can decay and small spaces can open up between the gum and teeth. Your teeth can become loose and may eventually fall out.

Dry mouth:  

Dry mouth is caused by a reduced flow of saliva. Saliva is needed to help control bacteria and wash away food debris. Certain medications, some diseases, smoking and chewing tobacco can cause dry mouth. If you suffer from dry mouth, talk to your dentist about ways to treat it.

 

Check-up frequency:

Once every 6 months is good for most people, but some people with special conditions may need to see their dentist more often. Talk to your dentist about what’s best for you.

 

Your toothbrush:

You should change your old toothbrush every 3 months or sooner if the bristles become worn and frayed. If you’ve been sick with a cold or other bacterial infection, it’s wise to replace your toothbrush once you’re better.

 

TMJ (temporomandibular joint):

 

Many people are affected by TMJ. It is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the bone on each side of the head. The joint is stabilized by muscles that make it possible to open and close the mouth. Severe pain, discomfort or tenderness in or around these joints is referred to as a TMJ disorder. Common symptoms include:

If you think you may have a TMJ disorder, talk to your dentist who will be able to recommend appropriate treatment.

 

Tooth Sensitivity:

 

Tooth sensitivity is very common. It’s frequently caused by hot, cold and sweets. Some people notice sensitivity from brushing or flossing. Fortunately, it is easily treated with fluoride treatments that can help strengthen the enamel and improve your sensitivity. Also, try using a toothpaste made especially for sensitive teeth.

 

Tooth Erosion:

 

Tooth erosion is the wearing away of tooth enamel by acid. If erosion is left untreated, it can cause pain, infection and even tooth loss.
To protect against tooth erosion, brush and floss regularly, visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups, and avoid sugary foods. Also, try using a straw when drinking carbonated beverages or other sweet drinks, such as natural fruit juices, which are very acidic.

 

Smoking:

 

Smoking has a negative impact on every facet of your health, and all forms of tobacco can cause dental problems. Smokers and tobacco users are at greater risk of developing oral cancer and gum disease. Tobacco products cause permanent stains which cannot be removed by brushing; and smoking can also cause a heavy build-up of tartar requiring more frequent cleanings.

 

About dental services:

Your  first visit:
After an extensive evaluation and the recording of all extraoral, intraoral and soft tissues of the mouth, we will take a series of  images or x-rays. It may be a few more than you might expect, but x-rays are needed so that we can complete a comprehensive exam of your entire mouth. After reviewing your x-rays, your dentist will discuss your dental and medical history and the reason for your visit. The dentist will then perform a thorough oral exam and suggest a comprehensive treatment plan that’s best for you.

 

Cleaning (prophylaxis):

Regular cleanings help remove plaque and tartar build-up and prevent you from getting periodontal diseases. There are several different types of “cleanings” that are recommended by the dentist and hygienist depending on the patient’s oral health. To determine which type of “cleaning” is prescribed for you, please ask your dental professional.

Root planning (deep cleaning)

Root planing is the process of smoothening the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure

Fillings

Restoration of lost tooth structure with metal,  porcelain or resin materials. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities. They are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time. Most people will need to get at least one dental filling in their lifetime.

Crowns and bridges:

Sometimes, very large cavities are  not suitable for  fillings  because they will be broken when functioned, crowns are used for that cases.

Bridges resemble natural teeth, and are designed to take the place of areas where there are missing teeth. A bridge is a stationary dental prosthesis (appliance) fixed to teeth adjacent to a space. It replaces one or more missing teeth, cemented or bonded, to supporting teeth or implants adjacent to the space.

Extractions

Removal of a tooth

Root canal treatments

If the pulp tissue or nerve inside your tooth becomes inflamed or infected, you may need a root canal procedure. The most common cause is tooth decay, but other causes include trauma, multiple fillings, or a tooth needing a crown.

Dentures

Dentures are removable (partial or complete) set of artificial teeth. Whether you have lost teeth due to decay or an accident, we can help you feel confident and get you smiling again with properly fitting dentures.

Implants

Sometimes, missing teeth will create the need for dental implants.  A dentist typically uses implants replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are normally made of titanium at the root, with a traditional crown as the tooth itself. They are an excellent alternative to pulling several teeth in order to utilize a bridge or to get dentures.

Braces

Devices used by orthodontists to gradually reposition teeth to a more favorable alignment.

 

Teeth whitening

A chemical or laser  like process to lighten the color of teeth.

Veneers

A plastic  or porcelain facing bonded directly to a tooth to improve its appearance.
