The best way to preserve your oral health is to brush and floss regularly, and make sure to have routine oral exams and dental cleanings at least twice annually. Practicing good oral hygiene at home can go a long way toward preventing the development of serious dental issues later on, but even those with excellent brushing and flossing habits can occasionally have problems with their teeth and gums. Аt our clinic we offer comprehensive treatment options to help you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
Tooth Colored Fillings
In order to restore and strengthen teeth that have been damaged from cavities and decay,we uses tooth-colored fillings as a durable solution. Unlike the amalgam (metal) fillings of the past, tooth colored fillings blend in naturally with your teeth, making them virtually undetectable. The composite resin used for tooth-colored fillings is safe, strong, and can be used on patients of all ages. Plus, if you already have old metal fillings, replacing them with tooth-colored fillings can be a great way to enhance the look of your smile with fillings that look more like your original teeth.
Endodontics/Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is necessary when the nerves inside of a tooth or teeth become infected. This treatment is necessary in order to preserve your natural teeth and prevent the infection from spreading, which can cause more serious health issues. Through the use of advanced dental technology, we are able to make root canal procedures faster and much more comfortable than the traditional methods of the past.
Signs and Symptoms of Infection
Infection of the inner tooth (pulp) can be caused by a number of factors. Decay from untreated cavities or damage caused by chips, breaks, or a traumatic injury can lead to infection. The infected nerves cause tenderness and pain, often leading to extreme sensitivity to hot and cold, as well as discomfort while eating.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, having your teeth examined is vitally important. Some instances of infection may not exhibit any symptoms, so annual oral exams are an excellent way to detect infection and prevent health risks, tooth loss, and severe damage to your teeth and gums.
