Complete Dental Services for Your Whole Family
Having a healthy mouth is not only important for your smile, but has other health benefits as well. Periodontal disease also called as Gum disease is an active bacterial infection that slowly eats away gum tissue and bones, leading to formation of pus and bacteria. That is why it is called a “silent killer”. It has been linked to higher risk for a stroke, heart attack and respiratory issues. Gum disease can also cause complications during a pregnancy and complications with diabetes.
Besides routinely cleaning and inspecting your teeth and gums, regular dental visits also allow us to thoroughly examine your mouth and oral tissues for signs of impending issues, and conduct thorough oral cancer screenings to detect and treat the disease early, if needed. Typically, general dentistry encompasses:
- Comprehensive Checkups: includes Oral Cancer Screening, Periodontal Screening
- Digital Radiography and Imaging
- Professional Dental Cleanings
- Dental care for Children and Adults
- Emergency Dental Care
When a dental emergency strikes, such as tooth damage or a sudden and severe toothache, immediate treatment might be necessary to alleviate the discomfort and preserve your oral health. For many dental emergencies, we offer same-day appointments so you can seek the professional dental care you need as quickly as possible.
Tooth decay, wear, and damage are a natural result from the intense workout and bacterial influx our mouths get every day. Restorative dentistry serves to restore teeth that may have been damaged through common oral health problems or more serious dental issues. Damaged teeth can be restored with natural-looking materials, like composite white fillings and porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges. This means that you can retain an all-white smile. The benefit of restorative dentistry is that many of the procedures overlap with cosmetic dentistry procedures allowing for modern restorations that are designed to improve the look and feel of your smile and enhance your overall appearance. Restorative Procedures include:
- Tooth Colored White fillings
- Porcelain Crowns
- Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
- All Ceramic Dental Bridges
- Tooth Extractions
- Root Canal Treatments
- Natural looking Dentures
Treatment for the Gums
Periodontal (gum) disease is an ongoing infection of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically-susceptible individuals. Bacteria found in plaque produce toxins or poisons that irritate the gums. They may cause them to turn red, swell, and bleed easily. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth causing pockets (spaces) to form. Plaque can also harden into a rough, porous substance known as calculus (or tartar). This can occur both above and below the gum line. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. Statistically, this disease damages the teeth, gum, and jawbone of more than 80 percent of Americans by age 45
