Hygiene Visits Are Very Important for Adults

Adult Dental Care Plymouth MIWe advise our adult patients to have their teeth cleaned at least once a year by our professional dental hygienist. This is the best recommendation we can make to prevent harmful plaque and tartar from building up on teeth over time. Brushing may not remove all of the plaque. When plaque hardens into tartar below the gumline, it can cause gum disease. If left untreated, recent research shows, it can have an effect on life-threatening conditions like stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. Please have your teeth cleaned regularly for overall good health.

Saving Hopeless Teeth

Saving Hopeless Teeth
In the past, when a tooth had damaged or infected roots, it was extracted. When root canals started to be performed in place of extractions, they acquired a reputation of something to be dreaded and avoided. With advancements in technology and anesthetics, today root canal therapy is a successful way to keep a natural tooth if decay has reached the nerves or roots and the usual filling will not alleviate the condition.

Relief from TMJ/TMD Strain and Aches
Dental occlusion or a bite that does not come together properly can be the reason for soreness or clicking in the jaws, aches and strain in the shoulders or neck, or frequent headaches. Problems with occlusion (your bite) may occur as your teeth may be ground down from wear, or teeth missing from an accident or dental disease. If your jaw cannot settle into its natural position, it will result in tightness in the jaw muscles that will produce continual discomfort. When your dental occlusion is corrected, the jaw will set in its proper position and aches and strains will be relieved. Realigning the jaw is a very technical procedure referred to as full mouth rehabilitation. Relieve your pain and suffering, and let us show you the benefits and quality of life this procedure will give you.

Dental Care for Seniors

Dental Care for Seniors
As we get older, there are changes to our bodies and our teeth and gums. Teeth may be discolored from continual consumption of caffeine or tobacco and plaque can build up over the years. Sometimes taking medications may reduce the amount of saliva that flows through your mouth. The wear and tear on fillings may produce cracks that weaken the tooth or allow decay to seep in. We advise regular check-ups to take care of any problems in the earliest stages. If gums begin to bleed or are swollen and red and teeth start to become loose, please contact us immediately.
