So what exactly does a family dentist do?
The Diagnosis, Treatment, and Management of Overall Oral Care.
That sounds like a lot of work, and it is. Consider family dentistry the base level of your oral health. Gum care, oral hygiene, fillings, x-rays, and preventative education form healthy habits that contribute to overall well-being and fewer dental issues.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
Routine exams and teeth cleanings are essential to preventative care. By preventing tooth decay, bone loss, oral cancer, and periodontal disease – our patients are healthier, more confident, and are more likely to avoid costly procedures.
CONTRACTED WITH INSURANCE
Professional teeth cleanings are among our most popular services. Everyone loves that refreshing sensation they get after having their teeth cleaned and polished.
Professional cleanings serve a more important purpose than merely reinvigorating your smile. They are essential to maintaining your smile because they remove the plaque and calculus that cause tooth decay.
In addition to preventing cavities, professional teeth cleanings prevent bacteria from spreading to the part of the tooth that lies beneath the gum.
Cleaning Teeth Below the Gum Line
Half of Americans over the age of 30 have some form of periodontal disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This statistic rises to 70 percent for people over the age of 60.
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. In addition to eroding the enamel on teeth and causing tooth decay, bacteria also can attack the ligaments, tissue, and bone that support the teeth and roots beneath the gums. Gum disease can cause the gum tissue to pull away from the tooth, creating pockets of bacteria around the tooth.
If you have bad breath, you’re not alone. Halitosis, the medical term for bad breath, affects 25 percent of the U.S. population.
While bad breath can be caused by eating foods heavily spiced with garlic, onions and other pungent ingredients, bad breath is most often related to germs in your mouth. When bacteria causes dental decay, the damaged cells release an odor.
Professional teeth cleanings and gum treatment can help resolved bad-breath issues. Proper at-home dental care, including brushing and flossing your teeth after meals and rinsing with mouthwash, also will help keep bad breath under control.
Oral Cancer Screening
On your first visit to our office, we will screen you for oral cancer. This quick, painless test that allows the dentist to detect signs of oral cancer that are not visible to the naked eye.
Oral cancer often has no symptoms in its early stages, which makes it particularly dangerous. By the time symptoms, such as a lump, are visible, the disease is frequently in an advanced stage and has spread to other parts of the mouth. The death rate for oral cancer is higher than more commonly known cancers including cervical cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, testicular cancer, and thyroid cancer.
We recommend everyone over the age of 18 gets screened.
Teeth Grinding & Night Guards
Teeth grinding, also called bruxism, is a common condition that affects up to 40 million Americans. If it’s severe enough, it can wear down the enamel of your teeth.
Teeth grinding is often caused by stress but can also be the result of crooked teeth or a “bad bite.” Our dentist can fit you with a mouth guard, or night guard, to protect your teeth while you sleep.
Our goal is to provide the best preventive and diagnostic care for our patients as well as a full spectrum of advanced dental products and procedures. We pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and facilities, as well as the technical advances we employ.
