Denture Reliners & Repairs

The longer dentures are worn the more your gums change underneath the denture. A result the denture can become loose and begin moving over gum tissue possibly creating sores throughout the gum line. Therefore a denture should be relined every two years in order to restore the retentive qualities of the denture and prevent production of flabby gum tissue underneath and sore along the gum line.

Partial & Full Dentures

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and replace into your mouth. There are 2 types of dentures: Full and Partial. With full dentures a flesh colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth) while the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.

Treatment of Gum Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis are serious infections which, if left untreated, can lead to loss of one or more teeth. The word periodontal literally means “around the tooth.” Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Periodontal disease can affect multiple teeth simultaneously.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Whitening or bleaching treatments are available to satisfy every budget and personal schedule. The long and the short of it is that teeth-whitening works! According to the ADA the term “bleaching” can be used only when the teeth can be whitened beyond their natural color. This applies strictly to products that contain bleach such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

Crowns

Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented in place fully cups over the portion of the tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of the tooth, a dental crown becomes in effect the tooth’s new outer surface.

Implants

Dental Implants are artificial tooth replacements. Although your dentist can offer a number of restorative procedures for replacing missing teeth, the success rate of implants as compared to other procedures has been nothing short of excellent. Many implants are still performing well after 20 years since they were installed.

Oral Cancer Screening

Your dentist will carefully examine the inside of your mouth and tongue and in some patients may notice a flat, painless, white or red spot or a small sore. Although most of these are harmless, some are not. Harmful oral spots or sores often look identical to those that are harmless, but testing can tell them apart. If you have a sore with a likely cause, your dentist may treat it and ask you to return for re-examination.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. Everyday, minerals are added and lost from a tooth’s enamel layer through two processes; demineralization and remineralization. Minerals are lost from a tooth’s enamel layer when acids, formed from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth, attach to the enamel. Minerals such as Fluoride, Calcium and Phosphate are redeposited to the enamel layer from the foods and water consumed.
