Teeth Whitening

image4

 Bleaching or teeth whitening is another type of cosmetic procedure used to brighten the appearance of a person's teeth.  Over time, the mineral composition of a person's teeth changes and they become darker, thus whitening can be a conservative approach to creating a younger appearance of one's smile.  It can also be used to remove staining that has accumulated through the years due to different diets, smoking or even some antibiotic therapies.
 

Routine Cleanings

image5

 Gingivitis is a gum condition associated with bleeding of the gums. Prevention is the best approach. With routine dental cleanings, we remove any plaque or tartar build up around your teeth and gums that may contribute to gum disease and tooth decay if left untreated. These are usually performed at a minimum of twice a year (every six months). Brushing and flossing help to remove plaque from around and in between teeth, keeping your teeth looking and feeling clean. A healthy diet, one low in sugar and other refined carbohydrates, helps keep your whole body, including your teeth and gums, in good shape. 

Periodontal Maintenance

image6

 

Periodontitis is an infection of the gingival tissue (gums) including bone loss around the teeth. When gingivitis is left untreated and bacterial levels are not properly addressed, it will progress into periodontitis. Periodontitis has been linked to heart disease and strokes, preterm low birth weight, and poorly controlled blood sugar in diabetic patients.

Gum Therapy is accomplished by removing the plaque through a deep-cleaning method known as scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove bacteria that contribute to the disease. Adjunctive medications may be recommended to help reduce the bacterial load subgingivally, including mouth rinses and localized antibiotics (this infection, after all, is caused by bacteria).

Composite Restorations

image7

 When decay is diagnosed on a tooth, there are various forms of treatment, including tooth colored restorations called composite fillings. These white fillings allow teeth to look natural when people talk, laugh or smile. This type of treatment only requires one visit, during which the tooth is prepared and restored. An advantage of composite fillings, as compared with other dental restorations, is that they require less of the healthy part of a tooth to be removed to hold the filling in place. 

Root Canal Therapy

image8

 

The root canal of a tooth is where the living nerves and blood vessels lie within the inner anatomy of a tooth. When a tooth sustains damage such as: deep decay, fracture, or any other type of injury, the nerve may be affected and die. When this happens, an infection may form due to bacterial growth within the area.

It is often a painful sensation that requires immediate treatment. Ultimately, this will require the removal of the nerves and blood vessels within the tooth with a procedure known as root canal therapy. Because the nerves and blood vessels are not vital to the function of the tooth, the removal of these can often be used as a type of treatment to maintain a patient's natural dentition.

Implants

image9

 

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years.

Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. It's a great way to achieve a perfect smile, permanently!
