In our previous blog, we discussed how we treat smiles to manage periodontal disease or help avoid the onset of gum disease. Today, we would like to focus more on the preventive aspects. Let’s look at four ways our Brighton, MA, patients can stay gum disease free!
Gum disease occurs for a number of reasons, including poor oral hygiene and even our daily habits (such as smoking). However, we can actually offer patients treatment for periodontal disease. How do we treat gum disease in Brighton, MA, and what dangers does periodontal disease pose for our smiles?
When a tooth becomes damaged, or when an oral health issue develops that threatens the health and stability of a tooth, treatment is crucial. In order to preserve our Brighton, MA, patients’ smiles, we often create and place lifelike dental restorations.
Our Brighton, MA, patients with misalignment often talk about how uneven teeth impact their appearance. However, misalignment also leads to issues with the health and function of your smile. Instead of metal braces, we can help with a series of clear and comfortable plastic aligners. Let’s answer a few common questions about Invisalign®.
The new school year is about the begin, which means kids, college students, and educators will be heading back to school. We know that once the school year begins, finding time to see the dentist can often be difficult. Instead of postponing your visit until winter break, why not see us for a back to school visit and start your year with a healthier smile!
When you develop a dental infection, there is always a risk of losing the tooth if treatment isn’t provided in a timely manner. In order to save your tooth, you may need a root canal procedure. How does this endodontic procedure help save an infected tooth?
When we examine your smile every few months, we look for signs of decay and other oral health concerns. But did you know that we also screen for oral cancer? Undergoing a screening for this serious disease is crucial for your oral health.
We can lose teeth for a number of reasons, from injury to poor oral hygiene or even the advanced stage of gum disease, periodontitis. When gaps appear in our smiles, our oral health and quality of life can suffer. Fortunately, we can use advanced dental implants to provide secure and lifelike replacements for missing teeth.
Patients with misalignment need orthodontics to enjoy straighter and healthier smiles. However, you don’t need to rely solely on metal orthodontics to correct crooked and crowded teeth. Instead, we can use the unique Invisalign® system to offer a more even smile.
We address a number of different oral health concerns at our office, from gum disease to damaged or missing teeth. We even offer cosmetic care as well.
