Sensitive teeth often come from the fact that your gums have slightly receded. This recession of the gum line allows the underlying dentin to show through which allows water and food easier access to the sensitive nerve. To manage this, there are a number of toothpastes, gels and even some dental procedures that can be applied. Speak to us in more detail if you have very sensitive teeth.

Great teeth and gum care start at home. Brushing and flossing on a daily basis is the best way to take care of your teeth and gums on a continual basis.   By keeping to a daily routing you will greatly minimize the risk of gingivitis or tooth decay as you age.

Gingivitis is a condition caused when bacteria surrounds the teeth and enters the gums.  The gums can become irritated, inflamed and often bleed.  In order to prevent the condition from worsening, regular hygiene visits are highly recommended.  During your visit, our Hygiene team will teach you the proper flossing techniques and Oral Hygiene protocol for Home Care will prevent the Periodontal Disease.

Periodontal Disease is a quiet disease that begins with little or no symptoms.  It is caused by bacteria that surrounds the teeth and enters the gums.  The immediate condition is known as ‘gingivitis’.  The gums become irritated, inflamed and often bleed.  If not properly treated, the condition worsens.  Noticeable symptoms now appear.  They include:

  • Bad Breath
  • Gum Recession
  • Gum Sensitivity to Acidic Foods
  • Abscesses
  • Tooth Pain
  • Tooth Loss

Periodontal Disease is a chronic condition that needs immediate attention.  Through a series of Periodontal Cleanings, Root Planing & Scaling, Laser Therapy and Local Antibiotics, this condition can be controlled. Periodontal Surgery is only necessary for severe cases.

Plaque forms on your teeth just minutes after eating. Once plaque forms, the decay process starts and can eventually form into cavities. Cavities are a decaying process of your tooth. If you are having sensitive teeth or feel you might have a cavity, please schedule an appointment so we can find you some relief!

There are many factors that can cause staining to your teeth. Your diet, what you’re drinking, and even genetics can play a part. We will work closely with you to determine the cause of your staining and come up with a solution on how to achieve the exact shade that would be best for your smile.

Even if its not visible, a chipped or broken tooth is a very serious matter. It can irritate your tongue or even cause nerve damage to the tooth. We have several options to take care of any broken or chipped teeth and can get you back to your beautiful smile.

Having a missing tooth is never a comfortable situation, whether it causes you to smile differently, or cover your smile so no one can see it. You may even avoid certain foods just simply because you cannot chew. Whatever the case may be, we can take care of any missing tooth issue you may have.
