REGULAR EXAMS AND CLEANING
When maintaining good oral health regular exams are important. When we do regular exams we:
- Look for cavities and other indicators of tooth decay
- Check for any problems you can’t see/feel
- Do complete teeth cleaning
- Inspect teeth/gyms for gingivitis and periodontal disease
A regular exam takes around 45 minutes. All regular exams include thorough teeth cleaning. This involves cleaning, polishing, and rinsing the patient’s teeth to remove any build-up of tartar & plaque on the teeth’s surface.
It’s a good idea to visit our dental office every 6 months. This gives you an opportunity to ask any questions about oral health you have. We only offer regular exams through appointments so contact our dental office today to schedule a dental exam/teeth cleaning.
Bonding is a way to repair teeth that are a little chipped, crooked, or discolored. In the process of dental bonding, we place white filling onto your teeth so it looks better. This filling “bonds” with a patient’s tooth and since it’s in a variety of shades of teeth colors it can match up with how the patient’s natural teeth look.
Crowns is a procedure that restores the tooth’s shape or makes it stronger. Crowns are usually used for teeth that are worn, broken or destroyed via tooth decay. The crown is a “cap” that is cemented onto a tooth that typically covers the part of the tooth that’s above the gum line. The crown becomes the new outer surface of a tooth. Crowns can be made of either/and porcelain and metal. Porcelain crowns are most popular since they are strong and are clear like natural teeth.
These are replacement teeth that can be removed and look like natural teeth. The two kinds of dentures are full and partial. Patients get full dentures when all the natural teeth have been pulled. Meanwhile, partial dentures are connected to a metal frame connected to the patient’s natural teeth. They fill in where permanent teeth are pulled. It’s important for dentures to be cared for properly. They should be cleaned with a gentle cleaner and kept moist when not worn.
There are cases when a tooth should be removed. They are included when a baby tooth with long roots doesn’t fall out, or a tooth is so decayed that the teeth around it are at risk of being decayed. A bridge or implant might be recommended. Teeth can also be removed due to infection, wisdom teeth, or orthodontic correction.
These are usually made of a silver mixture. This dental material is strong and durable, so it’s a good option when restored teeth must hold up during chewing.
These are teeth in far back of a person’s mouth. In the case, they’re “impacted” due to a lack of room in the jaw they should be removed. This can prevent issues like swelling, tenderness, and pain. These teeth are also difficult to clean and are vulnerable to tooth decay, infections, and gum disease.
