Modern Dental Care Can Improve Your Treatment Experience

Modern approaches to general dental care can offer a range of benefits for patients. One way your dentist can offer an improved experience is by providing dental restorations that preserve your appearance. When you have a cavity, you may fear the effect a dental crown or dental filling will have on how you look. You can be pleasantly surprised to discover that appearance-friendly materials can ensure your crown or filling will not draw unwanted attention. A restorative dental procedure can also be more comfortable thanks to single-tooth anesthesia. Rather than numbing your entire mouth, single-tooth anesthesia provides a comfortable experience, while minimizing frustrating side effects that impact your day after you leave the dentist’s office.

Providing Important Dental Care For Young Smiles

Teaching young children the importance of proper dental care can help them maintain good habits well into adulthood. In many ways, the care your kids need will match the care that you need. Your hygienist can help them by cleaning their teeth, and your dentist can spend time examining them for any oral health problems. That being said, pediatric dental appointments involve more time for instruction, to help kids keep their smiles healthy. With professional care at the dentist’s office, and time and attention given to oral care at home, you can help set your child up to enjoy healthy teeth that last a lifetime. (more…)

If you experience this anxiety, you should understand that you are putting yourself at an increased risk for problems affecting your smile. That being said, these feelings can understandably make appointments more difficult. If you need help feeling at ease when you undergo dental care, you may want to discuss dental sedation. Through sedation, anxious patients can feel relief from their unease, and enjoy the care they need without excess stress. (more…)

3 Things To Consider If You Have Frequent Jaw Pains

Spending your day trying to ignore jaw pain can be frustrating and unpleasant, and it is not something you should feel you are helpless against. Many people suffer these pains because they have issues with their jaw joints, which can be the result of any of a number of issues.

3 Things To Keep In Mind When It Comes To Tooth Loss

Many people would prefer not to think about tooth loss. After all, if you are keeping up with regular brushing, and your teeth look good, you may feel that this is a remote risk. That being said, you can do a better job protecting yourself against tooth loss if you understand what can cause it. The main reason adults lose teeth is not due to injuries, or even cavities – gum disease is the chief culprit. If you take poor care of your gums now, you are more likely to need restorative support after tooth loss in the future. For those who have lost teeth, proper prosthetic support can help you rebuild your smile. (more…)

Quiz: What Can You Expect From Invisalign Treatment?

You can fix problems with the position of teeth, which can improve your appearance, while also reducing your risk for dental problems.

Answering Questions You Might Have About Dental Crowns

What makes a problem serious enough to require having a dental crown placed on your tooth? For some cavities, a dental filling will be enough support. However, larger cavities can demand more protection for your tooth than you should trust to a filling. Instead, your dentist will place a crown. After preparing the tooth, a crown will fit over it completely. Once it is in place, this restoration will be responsible for handling biting and chewing pressures that are exerted throughout the day. Your crown can last for many years when you practice proper oral care. Because there are life-like materials that can be used for their construction, you can preserve the appearance of your smile after you receive it. (more…)
