In many cases, small dental problems such as tooth damage can develop into a more complex concern when left untreated. That is why it is important to address your dental concerns as soon as possible.
Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? You may be developing gingivitis, which is a predecessor to periodontitis, or gum disease. Periodontitis is a fairly common disease, affecting 3 million Americans each year. However, in the late stages of the disease, it can lead to tooth loss and gum recession. Gum disease can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. There are surgical and non-surgical treatments for periodontitis.
Do you often find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? You may have bruxism. Bruxism is a condition characterized by chronic teeth grinding or clenching and may be caused by stress, crooked teeth, and a misaligned bite. Millions of Americans may clench or grind their teeth at night or during stressful situations. This can result in worn down or even broken and teeth. Oral appliances can stop teeth from grinding and protect teeth from further wear and tear.
Patients with crooked teeth may have a harder time biting evenly. Those with a misaligned bite or crooked teeth are at a higher risk for bruxism, or teeth grinding, which can wear teeth down. However, in our Succasunna office, we provide porcelain veneers and tooth bonding for improving the aesthetics of crooked teeth.
Patients who suffer from dental fear or anxiety often benefit from sedation dentistry solutions. Sedation relaxes patients during procedures, reduces the gag reflex, and allows dentists to work faster for a pain-free experience. Nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or oral conscious sedation can be used to help patients receive the treatment they need.
Have you lost a tooth to injury or decay? Do you have gaps in your smile? Missing teeth can result in problems, such as the shifting and overcrowding of teeth, difficulty biting and chewing, and increased tooth loss. However, dental implants, dental bridges, or full and partial dentures are great restorative options for patients with one or more missing teeth.
