Teeth Cleaning Dentist Flossmoor Homewood ILTeeth Cleanings – A Preventative Necessary

Brushing and flossing after each meal is the first step to ensuring optimal dental health. However, it isn’t the only necessity to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Despite regular brushing and flossing, food and bacteria in the mouth will leave hardened deposits called tartar. These hardened deposits, if not routinely removed, can cause cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. There are many toothpastes and mouth rinses on the market that reduce the amount of plaque or tartar build up, but none can completely prevent it. Routine or preventive dental cleaning appointment should be a part of everyone’s dental hygiene regimen at least once every six months.

Dental Fillings – Cavities Have Met Their Match

Dental Filling Dentists In Flossmoor Homewood ILBrushing, flossing, and a good routine of dental cleanings are necessary to prevent cavities. Additionally, one should be mindful of consuming sugary beverages and snacks and the effect that they have on your teeth and gums. Excess sugar can feed bad bacteria that remains in your mouth after brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Also, highly acidic foods, such as orange juice, can break down the protective enamel in your teeth, allowing bad bacteria a place to feed on excess sugar.

However, certain mouths are prone to cavities regardless of dental hygiene habits and diets. Specifically, a mouth with crowded teeth often has points of friction between the teeth that lead to incipient dental caries, or signs for potential cavities. If you are someone that is prone to cavities (one or more per year) despite a rigorous dental regimen, you may want to consider Invisalign.

Cavities can be treated at The Center For Dental Excellence. The cavity must be cleaned, all tooth decay removed, and filled with a porcelain material. If you are suffering from general tooth pain or haven’t had a dental cleaning in the last 6 months, be sure to schedule your initial exam and consultation so that we can access the condition of your mouth.

Dental Bridges – Replacing A Tooth

If you have a missing tooth or need to have a tooth pulled, The Center For Dental Excellence can replace that tooth with a dental bridge. A dental bridge is used when a tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, but it is still necessary to have a functioning tooth. Much like it sounds, a bridge is a tooth that is firmly affixed between the other two teeth. The bridging tooth is made to match your other teeth, giving you a complete row of teeth and confident smile.

Gum Treatment – Repairing And Preventing Gum Disease Damage

Gum DiseaseThere are many causes for gum disease. Excessive sugar in the diet, poor brushing or flossing habits, smoking, or piercings can lead to deterioration of the gums, allowing bad bacteria and food particles access to the root of the tooth causing more damage. If caught early, gum disease can be managed and The Center For Dental Excellence can establish a plan for eradicating it.

Some mouths are prone to gum disease or deterioration due to certain ligaments being tighter, shorter, or looser than they should be in an ideal mouth. Regardless of good dental habits or optimal diet, certain mouths simply need routine gum treatment.

Dental Crowns – Salvaging A Tooth

Dental Crowns In Flossmoor Homewood ILIf tooth decay is extensive, it may require more than a dental filling. If the tooth decay threatens the health of the tooth, surrounding teeth, and surrounding gums, it may be necessary to cover the tooth after removing all of the tooth decay. A dental crown may also be necessary if a tooth has decay in a spot that is difficult to effectively fill. Using the base structure of your teeth, a new tooth will be molded as a cover. If action is necessary before the new tooth can be ready, you may have an initial visit to prepare the tooth, with a secondary visit to crown the tooth.

Dental Sealants – Keeping Tooth Decay at Bay

Dental SealantsDental sealants are an effective way to protect your teeth from cavities and tooth decay. Sealants consist of a thin, BPA-free plastic coating that’s simply adhered to the chewing surface of your teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier that keeps bacteria and cavity-causing food particles from becoming trapped in the grooves of the tooth. While most patients get sealants with the eruption of molars, around the ages of six and 12, adults can also benefit from sealants. In fact, by the age of 65, 95% of American adults have had tooth decay! Contact The Center for Dental Excellence to see if sealants can help protect you!
