Dental Care

Did you know lost teeth can cause severe effects? Chewing and General health can be affected. The appearance of the front teeth and the smile can deteriorate. Teeth Adjacent to spaces may drift and tilt into them. Teeth in the opposite jaw, over the space, can grow longer because there is no opposing tooth to bite against, and then keep it in place. The bite can be affected, and the front teeth can be forced forward.

What is a sensitive tooth?

Sometimes you wince when you take hot or cold foods. This may be a sign of dentine hypersensitivity (sensitive teeth), caused by a couple of things including tooth decay (cavities), fractured teeth, worn out fillings, gum disease, worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth root.

When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat/cold, acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth more easily. The irritation of the nerves causes the sensitivity.

Can sensitive teeth be treated?

Sensitive teeth can be treated.

Periodontal disease may be passed from parents to children and between couples. Researchers suggest that the bacteria which causes periodontal disease may be passed from one person to another through saliva. This means that the common contact of saliva in families puts children and couples at risk for contracting the periodontal disease of another family member. Protect your family from periodontal and other dental conditions.

What is a dental filling?

A dental filling is a dental restoration fabricated to artificially restore the function, anatomy, and integrity of teeth that have been damaged by trauma or dental caries, also known as dental cavities or dental decay.

Dental Scaling and Cleaning

Dental scaling, cleaning, and root planning, also known as prophylaxis is the safe removal of plaque and calculus from the teeth and below the gums. When plaque is allowed to remain on the surfaces of the teeth and gum line, it can cause irritation, swelling, and gingivitis.

Scaling effectively removes plaque, bacteria, and debris from the areas that your toothbrush and floss aren't capable of reaching.
