Preventative Dental Care
When it comes to your health, prevention is key. Prioritizing a healthy mouth is a vital part of maintaining excellent health overall. Regular visits to your dentist help maintain a healthy mouth, just like exercising keeps your whole body in shape!
Getting your teeth professionally cleaned twice yearly is an important way to prioritize your best dental health. Brushing and flossing twice daily is another important part of maintaining a clean mouth but doing so does not replace the need for regular cleanings! Little bits of bacteria and plaque can be left behind even with faithful at-home care and eventually lead to tartar build-up. Not to worry, as our thorough dental hygienists will be gentle and caring with your deep professional clean every six months to stop trouble before it begins. Adequate oral hygiene requires these cleanings to be done by well-trained hygienists twice yearly for best results.
Regular examinations by our caring and skillful dentists will help keep your smile healthy and happy by catching any potential issues or concerns before those progress into larger problems. Your dentist will do a full evaluation of your teeth and gums during your exam. Having x-rays taken will show any cavities present or tartar below the gum line that is easily visible, and you may not necessarily be aware of otherwise. The measurement of depth in your gum pockets at the base of each tooth indicates gum health. Gum disease causes receding and enlargement of this pocket, at which point treatment is needed to protect your oral health.
Treating Gum Disease
Studies have shown many links between gum disease and systemic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. However, periodontal disease can affect you whether or not you have been diagnosed with a condition that affects the whole body. One noticeable sign that your gums are in need of extra attention is if you notice any bleeding while brushing. If your dentist’s exam reveals a reason for concern regarding your gum health, heed their advice. There is hope for controlling gingivitis, but if it progresses to full periodontitis, the problems will become a major concern. Periodontal disease is a major concern because you are more likely to lose teeth from this than from cavities!
Restorative Dental Treatment
Sometimes, a mouth needs a boost to be the best and brightest smile possible, and this is where restorative and cosmetic dental options play a role. Dental crowns are often composed of zirconia or porcelain with fusion to metal or not. We offer many options to best closely match your naturally occurring tooth color and shade. Different materials used offer a variety of benefits, and the experts here at Park Crossing Dentistry are excited to discuss your options and help you make the choice that best suits your smile.
Rest assured that dental crowns, implants, fillings, and other restorative treatments are incredibly safe dental procedures! There are virtually no cons and only a beautiful smile to gain. Occasionally we hear questions about possible trouble from spicy food, alcohol, and caffeine following implants, but the reality is these do not affect your implants. It is not a problem to consume these so long as you are keeping up with your regular preventative dental habits.
