Why choose us?
What treatments do we offer at our dental clinic?
Dentures – These are plastic appliances that serve as replacements for missing natural teeth. Teeth may be lost due to facial injuries, gum disease, or tooth decay.
Night Guards – If you grind your teeth or clench your jaw frequently while sleeping, you might experience tooth wear, or jaw pain. A night guard is usually used in the treatment of teeth grinding.
Dental Implants – Dental implants are metal screws surgically placed in your jawbone below your gums. They allow our dentists to attach replacement teeth to them once they’re in place.
Orthodontics – Clear Aligners and Braces are dental treatments that aim to improve the function and straighten your teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I maintain my teeth between dental check-ups?
- Always brush your teeth twice daily.
- Use fluoride-containing toothpaste, and ask our dentist if a fluoride rinse is essential. A fluoride rinse can help prevent gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay.
- Quit smoking and avoid eating a lot of sugary foods. Sugar promotes bacterial growth leading to cavities. And smoking can cause gum disease and stain your teeth.
- Clean your tongue! By cleaning your tongue, you can get rid of food particles and lessen the number of bacteria that cause plaque.
- Schedule your regular check-up as soon as possible. We suggest that you see our dentist every 6 months.
Why do you have bleeding gums?
When gums bleed, it usually means that they are inflamed and irritated. The most common reason for this is plaque (a thin film of bacteria) remaining on the teeth, which causes gingivitis. If left untreated, gum disease can develop over time. If done correctly, a regular oral hygiene routine should be able to stop your gums from bleeding. We would recommend that you see our dentist regularly for check-ups. This can aid in diagnosing any uncommon oral conditions so that you receive the proper care and guidance.
What should you do if you have sensitive teeth?
A toothpaste specially designed for sensitive teeth may provide some relief. Apply some toothpaste to the sensitive area when going to bed as it helps protect the surface. Avoid strongly acidic beverages and meals, and wait for an hour after eating before brushing since doing so could increase sensitivity.
If the pain doesn’t go away, speak to our dentist. They will be able to provide more treatment that will decrease your symptoms. There can be many reasons why you’re experiencing tooth sensitivity, and our dentist will know how to identify these causes and what kind of treatment you require.
