Whether its been 6 months or six years, we welcome you to come into Quail Creek Dental for a check up exams and cleaning. Regular checkups with your dentist help prevent tooth & gum decay, infection and ultimately tooth loss. Routine teeth cleanings help remove tarter buildup and stains from coffee, tobacco and more.
Somtimes, extraction is the best option for teeth that are so far deteriorated that there is nothing left to restore. It is also an acceptable alternative for teeth causing pain but no budget for treatment required to save the problem tooth.
Periodontal Therapy (Gum Disease Treatment)
The effects of periodontal disease on not only the mouth but the rest of the body are serious. Periodontal disease attacks the tissues around the tooth, slowly breaking them down. This is often something that can’t be reversed, only prevented from becoming more serious. There has been a lot of research that supports many links btween gum disease and other diseases of the body such as heart disease. Gum disease often is painless and goes undetected. It is most often the result of hardened bacterial plaque (called calculus or tartar) on the root surfaces of teeth. This is also one of the biggest causes of bad breath, known in the dental community as perio breath.
Left untreated, cavities caused by decay spread quickly. Once the vascular portion of the tooth, called the pulp, becomes infected, tooth pain often results necessitating removal of the infected tooth tissue. The pulp contains nervous tissue and vessels that often cause pain and infection when encroached upon by bacterial decay of trauma.
