Routine dental exams are the most efficient way of identifying abnormalities in the mouth and preventing potential issues from growing in size and severity. However, many people don’t understand the benefits of routine oral exams or feel anxious because they don’t know what to expect during a typical dental check-up.
Dental hygiene is important to your oral health because it reduces your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. When left untreated, both tooth decay and gum disease can have serious implications on your oral health.
If you let an unhealthy tooth linger in your mouth, it can affect not only the surrounding teeth but also by keeping the damaged tooth in your mouth, it also will spread and promote the bacteria to grow. Having bacteria in your mouth is never a good thing. The infection can then move to other parts of the body.
Dentures and veneers are popular restorative and cosmetic dental procedures performed to treat several minor and major dental issues. These may include chipped or missing teeth, large gaps between teeth, weak teeth, sagging jaw structure due to bone loss, etc. Not everyone is suitable for veneers or dentures. Let us help you have the best smile possible.
You might make an appointment to have your crooked teeth straightened, reduce gaps, or correct misaligned teeth. An orthodontist can help with misaligned jaws or bite problems that can cause pain or clicking while chewing. Your orthodontist may also be able to help in some cases of sleep apnoea or to correct issues caused by prolonged habits such as thumb sucking as a child.
If your teeth are stained, have discoloration, or aren't as white as you want them to be, professional teeth whitening may be for you. This cosmetic dentistry service can help permanently brighten your smile while boosting your confidence.
