What Can It Take To Address An Advanced Cavity?

A cavity with enough time to grow can do serious harm to your oral health. The reason your dentist encourages you to seek restorative dental care as soon as possible when you think something is wrong is because cavities continually spread once they have formed. Over time, decay can begin attacking the interior of your tooth, and can ultimately move beyond it. Advanced cavities can require different levels of care. If you have bacteria that enter your pulp, your dentist will need to take care of it by performing a root canal treatment. (more…)

A Better Look At Your Smile With Digital Imaging

3D imaging is used by your dentist to closely examine your mouth. The views provided by these scans are often used to plan more involved treatments, like the placement of dental implants.

This technology, along with the digital x-ray technology also available to your dentist, helps them make a careful study of your smile. Problems can be identified, and treatments can be planned, in order to make sure any issues that turn up do not create trouble for you. (more…)

Depending On Dental Implants For Prosthetic Support

Having a dental prosthetic you can depend on to help you with tasks like biting and chewing means having a prosthetic that is securely held. By receiving dental implants to hold your prosthetic, you can ensure you have the security you need to enjoy real functional advantages with your restoration.

This prevents deterioration of the bone, which can is a common issue for people with tooth loss. (more…)

How Single-Tooth Anesthesia Can Improve Dental Treatment

There can be several reasons a patient feels apprehensive about their impending dental work. One issue is with the aftereffects of treatment. If you undergo restorative dental work that involves anesthesia, you may be bothered by the way the numbing of your mouth can complicate your day. Thanks to single-tooth anesthesia, those issues can be avoided. Single-tooth anesthesia allows your dentist to concentrate the anesthetizing effect on the tooth undergoing treatment. This means you still enjoy a more comfortable treatment experience, with fewer side effects. This method is effective enough to still limit the discomfort that might accompany a procedure. (more…)

What You Should Expect From Your Dental Crown

Dental crowns are not always needed to restore teeth after problems occur. Many patients who come in for cavity treatment will leave after having a dental filling placed. The filling is capable of occupying the area of your tooth lost to decay, but more serious structural damage can call for more support. A crown completely covers your tooth, all the way down to your gum line. Because you can have a crown that is made with natural-looking dental ceramic, you can make sure your smile is not hindered by the presence of your restoration. Because it provides total coverage, your crown is able to keep a vulnerable tooth safe when you bite and chew food. (more…)

Your Dental Experience Should Be A Comfortable One

When you come in for dental treatment, your comfort should be treated like a priority. Your dentist understands this, and will work to provide you the best possible environment when you come in for care. Unfortunately, some people will struggle to feel at ease simply because they have anxieties about dental work. While concern can be a natural reaction when you come in for more involved work, like a root canal treatment, you should not feel like anxiety is unavoidable when you sit down in the dentist’s chair. Every patient can count on support, attention, and dedicated care from everyone on staff at the office. For those who still feel persistent anxiety, dental sedation can help. (more…)

Why Sleep Apnea Is Different Than Snoring

Snoring is an embarrassing condition – sleep apnea is a potentially dangerous one. Sleep apnea can seem like particularly heavy snoring to some. However, this condition is doing more than just making someone a noisy sleeper. If you suffer from this issue, you are actually losing sleep throughout the night. Your sleep cycle is continually broken, and you are being deprived of the important health benefits you should be enjoying from a night’s rest. Patients with sleep apnea are vulnerable to issues like heart disease, struggle to feel rested and alert during the day, and can have existing mental issues aggravated. Your dentist can treat you in order to prevent your condition from continuing to cause health concerns. (more…)
