In just a couple weeks, children across the country will be donning costumes and going door-to-door to collect candy. While we all enjoy the sights and sounds of Halloween, we also recognize that candy can lead to a greater risk of tooth decay. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to create a smile-healthy Halloween, such as offering alternatives to Halloween candy.
We have a variety of dental restorations available to help repair and restore a tooth, such as veneers, dental bonding, and lifelike dental fillings. However, we also have one that can correct multiple oral health concerns and provide great stability (and a natural looking appearance). What’s in a dental crown? What should I expect when receiving one?
If you have a gap in your smile, then you may be interested in prosthetic dentistry. We can replace a lost tooth with a lifelike solution, such as a dental bridge or a dental implant. We can even address advanced tooth loss as well.
If you break a tooth, we recommend seeing us as soon as possible. We have emergency care available to address damaged teeth or sudden pain in or around your mouth. We can fix a broken tooth before decay or an infection develops, using lifelike dental restorations. Often, we can address the issue in a single visit!
Like you, your children need to take good care of their smiles. After all, they are just as susceptible to tooth decay and dental infection as an adult. But are there ways to make dental care fun for children? We believe parents and yes, even the dentist, can work together to make children’s dental care a little more enjoyable!
Tooth loss can cause a number of problems for a patient, from trouble eating his/her favorite foods, to difficulties communicating clearly. Missing teeth have also been linked to misalignment and even an aged appearance due to loss of jawbone density. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help prevent tooth loss.
Children, even toddlers and babies, are susceptible to the onset of tooth decay. Just as with adults, lack of treatment can mean serious discomfort and the risk of premature tooth loss due to infection. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help your kids avoid cavities!
