If you have broken a tooth, you might not necessarily be in any pain, but it is still important that you are seen by our dental provider as soon as possible. Doing so can prevent further damage to your affected tooth and will ensure that you can manage any discomfort that does occur.

Many people consider toothaches to be one of the worst types of pain that you can have, largely because the discomfort you experience often isn’t isolated in just one area. Not only can you feel anything from a dull ache to a sharp pain in your actual tooth, but you can also suffer from a pounding headache, sore and swollen gums, and even earache. People who have toothaches may find themselves unable to enjoy certain foods or drinks, and may even have their ability to talk normally compromised.

Gum Recession Prevention

Gum Recession Prevention​​​​​​​

Many dental patients are rightfully concerned with potential gum recession. Gum recession is when the margin of the gums begins to pull away and move down the tooth. This exposes more of the tooth structure and leaves your teeth and underlying bone more exposed to possible infection or disease. Additionally, as the gum recedes, it creates pockets that can trap food particles and bacteria. These pockets are also difficult to clean regularly, so the potential to damage your tooth is further increased.

Gum recession is a common side effect of periodontal disease, and one that can have a devastating effect on the health and beauty of your smile. Patients who are suffering from gum recession will find that the margin of gum tissue that surrounds the teeth either erodes or pulls back, which exposes unnatural amounts of tooth. Sometimes the gum recedes so much that the root is also exposed.

While teeth whitening is the premier cosmetic dental treatment in the U.S. and considered to be extremely safe, a small number of people are not suitable for whitening treatment. This is either due to medical reasons, or because whitening is highly unlikely to be able to create the result desired by the patient.

Do you look in the mirror and wish that your teeth were brighter and whiter? Do you have stubborn discoloration that won’t improve no matter what products you use or how well you brush? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, you most certainly are not alone. While genetics do play a small part in the color of our teeth, the main factor responsible includes the elements that they are exposed to. From heavily colored foods, to nicotine and medications, our once pearly-whites can absorb color from a variety of places, and over time they can become stained and discolored.

Following the delivery of new dentures, there is a variable period of time (generally 2-6 weeks) of adjustment. New dentures often feel bulky and awkward at first. Soft tissues of the mouth now covered may have been open or left uncovered, by a previous denture. This strangeness, although bothersome, is a temporary problem that is usually resolved during the adjustment period.
