Everyone wants a perfect smile. Fortunately with modern dental technology, we can make that happen. At Dental Touch Associates, we specialize in family dentistry. We’ll help you with your smile but we’ll also keep your dental health in top form.
One of your first priorities in getting dental care is making sure your mouth is healthy.
Common dental health problems include:
- Gum disease
- Cracked teeth
- Infected teeth
- Lost teeth
These can all be corrected using modern dental procedures.
Cavities can be corrected with attractive, functional tooth-colored or white fillings. Gum disease can be handled by a periodontist, or it can be corrected with periodontal treatment by a general dentist, depending on the severity of the condition. Cracked teeth can be restored using a dental crown, and infected teeth can be restored using root treatment and then sealed with a dental crown.
There are many options for replacing lost teeth, including dental implants, dental bridges, and removable dentures.
TMJ, which relates to jaw issues, can be corrected with neuromuscular dentistry.
Common complaints people have about the appearance of their smiles include:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
Fortunately, these can all be corrected as well. Discolored teeth can be corrected using teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are also a treatment option for chipped teeth and gapped teeth. So can dental bonding which is more economical. If you want to correct crooked teeth at the same time as gapped teeth, Invisalign teeth aligners might be a good option.
