Dental implants are placed to mimic the lost root systems of teeth. This provides natural support for the replacement tooth, and they preserve healthy gum tissue volume and jawbone density. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or a full arch, dental implant supported tooth replacement can offer you a natural, stable solution without relying on healthy dental structures for support.
General dentistry is oriented toward the prevention of disease. In fact, it is estimated that nearly 65 percent of all dental procedures are either diagnostic or preventive. By placing a strong emphasis on oral health and hygiene, general dentistry can help you avoid the progression of oral diseases. If left untreated, these eventually result in pain, lost time at work or school.
Your child needs to have their teeth professionally cleaned every six months. This allows us to remove plaque and tartar accumulations from the teeth that have been missed with brushing and flossing. This reduces the risk for tooth decay and gum disease. When you visit the Confident Smile Boutique with your children, it gives us an opportunity to discuss oral hygiene habits with them to make recommendations for improvement.
Tooth whitening (termed tooth bleaching when utilizing bleach), is either the restoration of a natural tooth shade or whitening beyond the natural shade. Restoration of the underlying, natural tooth shade is possible by removing surface stains caused by tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco or the buildup of calculus and tartar.
If your toothache interferes with work and sleep then consult Dr Ruchi J Anam as soon as possible. We will examine the tooth and a digital x-ray will be taken that shows whether or not there is infection inside. If so, then a root canal will likely be needed. Also called root canal therapy, this procedure removes the infection and preserves the remaining tooth structure.
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars in the back of your mouth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25, and they're spotted on X-rays. Impacted teeth and wisdom teeth that can potentially cause problems, like infections, need to be removed. Extractions can range from a single tooth, to removing all four wisdom teeth at once.
