Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures. There are two types of full dentures. Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth. The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to place the implant itself. This is typically done by either a periodontist or an oral surgeon, which we can refer you to. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted into the jawbone.
Along with twice yearly cleanings and exams, we also recommend application of topical fluoride to help remineralize the enamel on children's teeth (3-13 years old). This is also done twice a year and will help to prevent cavities from developing and possibly even reverse the progression of early decay. The fluoride varnish is painted onto the teeth using a small brush. After the varnish is placed, it is important to avoid drinking hot liquids, since this will dissolve the varnish, making it ineffective.
Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like. At our office we have multiple different whitening options to choose from! The first is our in-office whitening system. We use Glo Whitening at our office. The procedure is typically about 1 hour, during which we are typically able to whiten your teeth about 5-8 shades! This option comes with our Glo at home whitening kit as well so that you can touch up or continue whitening on your own.
Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and cavities on your back teeth (molars). These are the teeth that are most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in the chewing process, and are the most difficult to reach and clean. Molars first come in at around 5-7 years of age, with a second set coming in between the ages of 11-14. It is best to have a sealant placed when the molars first come in to ensure they are protected early. To place a sealant an adhesive is first applied to the teeth.
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct shape, color, and position of the teeth, and also cracks or gaps in teeth. A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years.
You may have heard about gum disease, also known as "periodontitis" or "periodontal disease." Maybe a dental professional or hygienist recently told you that you have this infection. Did you know that, although a causal relationship between periodontal disease and an elevated risk for systemic events has not been established, recent data suggest a possible association between periodontal disease and other health issues including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and preterm low birth-weight babies?
