In many ways this is the most important care we provide. The best way to treat dental problems is to prevent them from happening. As you would expect, preventive care includes regular professional cleanings along with good home care. But it also means a focus on education, early detection and, when necessary, quick intervention to avoid minor issues from becoming major ones.
Healthy gums, including the soft tissue and bone that surrounds your teeth, is one of the most important elements of dental health. Ensuring that the foundation that surrounds your teeth remains stable and healthy is vital to maintaining a healthy smile. Learn more about periodontal maintenance here.
A filling repairs and restores the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear. A dental filling strengthens the tooth. If tooth decay is not repaired at its early stages, it will worsen and additional or alternative dental treatments may be necessary.
A crown is a tooth-shaped covering for a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. Crowns can give support to a weak tooth, help support a bridge, or cover up a badly chipped or cracked tooth, restoring that tooth to its proper form and function. Crowns can be made of ceramic (porcelain) material, ceramic with a high noble metal substructure, or full or partial gold.
Left untreated, decay may progress into the pulp of a tooth. A root canal procedure – the cleaning, prepping and sealing of the tooth’s root system – can usually be accomplished in one or two appointments and enable long-term retention of the tooth.
