Healthy gums are crucial to overall good body health. Diseased gums may have symptoms such as chronic bad breath, gums that are pulling away from the teeth, red or bleeding gums, and abnormally loose adult teeth. The positive news is that diseased gums, technically called periodontal disease, can almost always be treated and restored to good health.
Dental implants are the perfect solution for replacing missing teeth. Because the replacements are implanted into the bone structure, they look and feel natural. Your friends won’t even know they’re not real.
Lasers are being used for more and more dental procedures. They are precise and less painful. Healing time is shortened, and less patient contact with tools and hands means the possibility of infection is also reduced. It’s definitely a win-win situation.
Sometimes there is not enough bone structure to support dental implants. In those cases, additional bone material may be grafted in to strengthen the bone infrastructure of your jaw.
Teeth grinding, technically known as bruxism, is the result of the forceful clenching of teeth most commonly during sleep. It can result in painful dental complications and other health issues. There are simple remedies available.
Dentures have been, and will always be, a positive solution for missing teeth. Whether it’s a partial denture replacing a few teeth or a full denture replacing all of your teeth, modern day dentures are comfortable and realistic looking.
Sometimes gum disease can result in the loss of bone structure. Guided tissue bone regeneration is a surgical procedure which encourages the growth of new bone tissue in negatively impacted areas of bone structure.
Some teeth misalignments can also keep the jaw from aligning properly. This can cause a variety of painful issues. This is an adjustment that your dentist can easily make in one dentist appointment
In cases of more severe gum disease, a gingivectomy may be needed to remove loose and diseased gum tissue. The dentist also may work to remove pockets between the teeth and gums to avoid bacterial infection.
Oral cancer has a high rate of mortality if not detected in its earliest stages. However, when diagnosed early, 90% of oral cancer patients make a complete recovery. Oral cancer screening is a routine part of every dental exam.
A healthy smile is developed in childhood. Bring your child into the dentist as soon as teeth start appearing so your child will develop a healthy relationship with your dentist. It will also allow your dentist to catch any developing problems before they get serious.
There is no need for fear to keep you away from the dentist. Sedation dentistry offers various levels of sedation to make your appointment comfortable. This is a wonderful solution that has provided many patients with a safe solution for fears of the dentist’s chair.
A root canal is a positive tool available to your dentist. It allows him to deal with severe decay and pain without removing the tooth. The decay is eliminated and the infected tooth is sealed against future infection. Modern day dentistry makes this procedure essentially a routine and painless event.
TMJ is the easy name for the temporomandibular joint which connects your jaw to your skull. A variety of situations can bring about discomfort or pain to this joint. Your dentist will help you pinpoint the cause and choose a solution to the pain.
Gum disease can take hold when plaque and tartar build up beneath the gums. Your dentist can remove the build up with a tool known as a scaler. He will plane the roots of your tooth to promote a healthy reconnection between teeth and gums.
When a tooth is removed, the socket that surrounded that tooth will naturally shrink over time. Sometimes the shape of the gum must be restored in order to prepare the ridge of your gums for dental implants.
Ridge preservation involves grafting in bone material to keep the jawbone structure strong where a tooth has been removed. This is especially helpful if dental implants are ever needed.
This is the best kind of dental procedure. This kind prevents problems from developing. This begins in your home with healthy oral hygiene habits. We support you with semi-annual dental exams and cleaning.
Osseous surgery is a last resort for saving a tooth when the surrounding gum tissue is weak or diseased. A flap of gum is lifted away from the affected area in order for the dentist to clean deep between the teeth and gums.
A crown is a porcelain “cap” for the tooth when a filling or veneer is not enough to restore the tooth. It is a great way to restore a natural look to a damaged or decayed tooth. A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth by anchoring a replacement to existing natural teeth.
Lumineers are the best in veneer technology. Lumineers employ the same ultra-thin porcelain shells to restore the tooth to its natural look. However, the application is simpler and there is no need to remove any enamel from your teeth.
If you are looking to repair a damaged, stained, or crooked tooth, porcelain veneers are a great way to accomplish that. These thin, porcelain shells are custom fabricated for your teeth and make your smile look bright and healthy.
Snap-On Smile is a thin, resin device which provides a superstar smile for a fraction of the cost of other cosmetic restorations. They are custom made and fitted, and they simply snap on over your existing teeth.
Composite fillings represent the best in dental fillings. Without the tendency to crack like the old silver fillings, they are a strong choice for durable dental work. They are resistant to staining and their color can be matched to your exiting teeth.
Teeth whitening is the most effective way available to brighten your smile with a minimal investment of time and money. You can do it at home with our home bleaching kits. You can also take advantage of a professional whitening at the office and leave with teeth several shades whiter in one appointment.
Laser gum surgery, or the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), is a gum disease treatment that allows the dentists at Fort Worth Dental to eliminate your gum disease with less pain and less downtime.
