We emphasize the importance of having dental cleanings by our hygienist,
which do more than keep your teeth and gums healthy – they help prevent
serious health conditions like diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular
Plaque that is not removed with brushing will harden into tartar. This cannot be taken off with a toothbrush and instead needs professional treatment. Tartar that has been left on the surface of teeth or below the gumline will result in decay and even worse, gum disease. Please take our recommendation seriously to stay healthy!
Extraction is no longer the go-to solution for a tooth with damaged or infected roots. And with the latest advancements in this procedure, patients don't have to dread having a root canal. It can save a tooth and save you from having other problems later on. The interior pulp chamber of the tooth will be cleaned and shaped, then sealed with a specific filling material. Additionally a crown is placed over the tooth, for strength and functionality.
As we get older, we see the effects of aging not only on our bodies, but
on our teeth as well. Fillings will loosen or a minute crack in a tooth
will occur. The necessary flow of saliva may be reduced due to certain
medications. Years of staining food and drink and even smoking have led to
dull, yellowed teeth. And the build-up of plaque is a frequent problem
with seniors, leading too often to gum disease or root decay.
We recommend regular check-ups to keep on top of any of these conditions. We also advise patients to continue with essential daily dental hygiene and making nutritious and healthy food choices. If you experience bleeding gums or loose teeth, please contact us immediately.
You may already be aware that your headaches, migraines, jaw, neck, and
shoulder pain could be the results of a dental malocclusion. When the jaw
does not come together as it should, the effects of temporomandibular
joint disorder (TMJ/TMD) may occur. Improper occlusion puts strain on the
adjacent muscles, producing various types of pain.
We can restore your bite to its correct position to relieve the associated problems. Don't wait any longer to ease your discomfort. You will be amazed at the new quality of life that will keep you smiling!
If it's time for your next cleaning, or if you're ready to schedule a no cost/no obligation consultation, call us now at (416) 415-2429.
