Preventive dentistry is the most basic dental treatment, and also the most important. By keeping up with regular dental exams and cleanings, you will continue to have a healthy and complete smile. These visits to your dentist will also ensure that any dental problems are discovered early before they turn into larger problems or have the opportunity to damage your teeth, gums, or the foundation of your smile.
Damage to teeth and gums should not be ignored. If you experience a knocked-out tooth, a severe toothache, a lost filling, mouth injuries that cause bleeding, and more, emergency dentistry care is available to accommodate your situation.
Regular professional dental cleanings and dental exams are critical in maintaining your oral health. Even the most diligent at-home oral health care isn’t enough to conquer the plaque that can build up on your teeth. Plus, your dentist will notice early signs of any serious oral health problems and be able to treat them before they grow when you keep up with preventive care.
For apprehensive or fearful dental patients, or for individuals who are receiving multiple treatments at one time, sedation dentistry is available so that you can calm your nerves, “sleep” away your appointment, and wake up with a brand new smile.
Gum disease is a serious infection in your gums caused by an excessive build-up of bacteria and plaque that can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal therapy repairs the damaged gums using soft tissue management techniques such as scaling and root planing.
