The American Dental Association recommends regular dentist visits and cleanings to maintain and improve oral health. These regular visits can prevent a dental emergency and keep your oral health in top shape! During your teeth cleaning, we will assess any oral health concerns as well as provide helpful ways to keep your teeth healthy and clean! Our staff is committed to excellent and quality care of our patients during every routine visit.
One of the most common procedures is removing a cavity from a tooth. Cavities are formed when the tooth experiences decay and need to be treated before they become severe. This decay creates a hole in the tooth that if left untreated can cause both pain as well as further dental complications. Once the cavity and decay have been removed, we fill the hole with a filling that recreates the missing part of the tooth!
In some cases, it may become difficult to floss or brush a certain area of one’s teeth. While regular flossing and brushing is always the best way to maintain oral health, some areas can be difficult to reach and clean on a regular basis. In this case, a sealant can be applied to an area of the tooth to prevent decay. In fact, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars – a difficult area to reach in many people’s mouths. Applying a sealant is a great preventative measure to ensure good oral health.
Dental crowns are caps placed on the top of teeth that have either been badly damaged or have undergone a procedure like a root canal where a portion of the tooth has been removed. To avoid having a tooth extraction or needing dental implants, crowns can be utilized to create a long-term solution for your oral health.
Also known as periodontitis, gum disease is a common oral health issue caused by an infection in the gums. Through regular visits, patients can learn healthy diet practices including oral health measures to improve their gums. In addition, our dental office can suggest a treatment plan to heal and prevent gum disease from returning.
Dental emergencies can be any dental issue that requires immediate attention from your dentist. This can include anything from a chipped or broken tooth, to an infection in the mouth. In these situations you will want to make a same-day appointment to ensure you receive the proper care and the problem doesn’t worsen.
Sedation Dental Care
It’s easy to understand why attending regular dentist appointments make some people anxious and uncomfortable, especially when undergoing a procedure. Sedation dental care comes in handy to ease your nerves if you aren’t necessarily comfortable in the dental seat. Our office has a variety of dental sedation options to choose from, such as nitrous oxide sedation (more commonly referred to as “laughing gas”), intravenous sedation, and oral conscious sedation. If you are looking for a Florence sedation dentist, look no further than Toothologie! We strive to make your experience in our office as worry-free as possible.
