“It’s not just a cleaning.” Regular exams and cleanings are necessary for good dental health. Bacteria found in the mouth can affect your overall health. We recommend a dental visit every six months to maintain good oral health.
Periodontal disease requires regular dental visits to improve the health of your gums. Plaque, tarter, and bacteria must be removed to maintain good oral health.
Restorations or “fillings” are used to restore a tooth that has decay, is worn, or has been broken. Traditionally, you can use amalgam or “silver fillings”, but composite or “tooth colored” resin restorations are now typically used to restore teeth back to their original shape.
Tooth shaped ”caps” that are placed over a tooth to strengthen the tooth or improve your tooth’s shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have large fillings due to tooth decay. Also, there is often insufficient tooth structure to hold a filling.
Root canal therapy is used when the “nerve” of the tooth has become compromised by decay or fracture. This often results in pain or infection and swelling. This treatment is a great alternative to removing or extracting the tooth.
