Top Restorative Procedures For Your Teeth
Posted on 1/15/2019 by Alyce
Restoring your teeth once something goes wrong gives you the ability to have a confident smile. There are many procedural possibilities you have access to, depending on what the issues are with your smile. Here are some of the top procedures to restore your teeth. Which would benefit you most? Teeth Whitening As you age, your teeth begin to darken naturally. Besides aging, tooth stains can be caused by day to day habits such as drinking coffee, tea or prolonged smoking. Teeth whitening is performed by bleaching the teeth to make them whiter. Implants and Bridges Implants and bridges are made to replace the teeth that are missing. Implants are artificial roots that are used to hold together the replaced teeth. Bridges, on the other hand, are false teeth that are contained in position by the neighboring teeth. Root Canals A root canal procedure is done to treat abscessed teeth. The process involves cleaning the insides of a decayed or cracked tooth to remove all infection, filling the spaces and lastly sealing the tooth. Braces This is a corrective procedure that is done to correct all bite-related imperfections and the alignment of teeth. Dental braces are installed on the teeth to apply steady pressure that will put the teeth into a more favorable position. Veneers Veneers are made of thin shell-like porcelain, crafted and customized to your perfect fit. A cosmetic dentist determines the size, shape, and color of your teeth to make the veneers appear more natural. Once prepared, the dentist carefully sticks them to the surface of your teeth. Gum Surgery Gum disease (periodontitis) is a bacterial infection that affects both the gums and teeth. Gum disease starts as gingivitis, which is more reversible. When it proceeds to periodontitis, you risk losing both your gums and teeth. At that advanced stage, a dentist will schedule a gum surgery altogether to restore your oral health. Sealants Sealants are barriers that are applied on the ridged surface of molars and pre-molars to prevent tooth decay. They protect the teeth by keeping away the disease-causing bacteria. Bonding Bonding is a dental restorative procedure undertaken to restore decayed, chipped, discolored and fractured teeth. This procedure uses a composite resin that resembles the tooth enamel in color. Bonding can also close the gaps in the teeth. This corrective procedure can be done in the dentist's office because it does not require complex lab work.

Where Do Dental Pit Stains Originate?
Posted on 12/25/2018 by Alyce
Almost everyone has dental pit stains. They may not cause any harm, but they can be unsightly enough for some people to want to get rid of them. They are found in the small holes that are typically located on the top surface of a tooth. Dental pit stains can be divided into two specific categories: they can be extrinsic or they can be intrinsic. Extrinsic stains These are caused by outside influences such as: Intrinsic stains These are incorporated within the structure of your tooth. Examples include: Treatment Options While intrinsic staining requires specialized intervention in a majority of cases, extrinsic staining is more manageable, and some remedies can even be prepared in the comfort of your home. Professional Tooth Cleaning Consider booking an appointment with a dentist to have your teeth professionally cleaned. Keeping a regular cleaning schedule will mean that you will have less staining overall. Baking Soda Baking soda is another option that can help remove some dental stains. If you take the tip of your toothbrush and dip it into a small amount of baking soda, then wet it with water and brush with it, you can remove some of the surface stains that accumulate on your teeth. Avoid Smoking Avoid smoking to minimize exposure of your teeth to cigarette tar which causes staining over time. Any tobacco use will actually stain your teeth, not just cigarette or cigar smoking. You should avoid tobacco for your overall health, not only your oral health. If you need help quitting smoking, reach out to us. We can give you some resources that can help. Contact us today to find out which options to combat any dental staining you may have will work best for your smile....

Where Can Bacteria from Your Mouth Migrate To?
Posted on 12/15/2018 by Alyce
We have all been taught about the dangers of "cooties" - the bacteria in our mouths that can be shared from kissing or sharing food and drink with other people. However, while the bacteria in your mouth can often serve a purpose (helping aid in digestion, for example) they can also be quite harmful. The problem with oral bacteria is not just that they can be dangerous, but they're never content to just stay put. The fact is, the bacteria in your mouth are quite happy to spread to other parts of your body if given the chance. Not Just Oral Bacteria: How Bacteria Can Attack Other Organs Many people do not realize how dangerous untreated periodontal disease can be. If left untreated, this infection can cause an unwelcome variety of problems including heart attack, cancer, diabetes, and stroke. Preventing it from happening can be as simple as regular dental checkups and a good oral hygiene regimen, but if left unchecked, it can cause lasting damage by moving throughout your system. Other issues that can arise include birth complications, harming your fetus and putting you at a higher risk of losing your baby. If you suspect that you have gum disease, or if it's been longer than six months since your last checkup and cleaning, give us a call today to schedule an appointment with our skilled dental staff and allow us to preserve not only your beautiful smile, but also your overall wellness....
