5 Major Dental Problems And Their Solutions

Implants
Simply put, if you have missing teeth then you are most likely a candidate for dental implants. The obvious problems with missing teeth are aesthetic, but a deeper concern is the eventual loss of supporting bone that lies beneath the teeth.  

Teeth supply the stimulation necessary for bone development and strength. When the teeth are gone, the bone is quick to follow.

There are several options for dental implants in Addison, from single tooth replacement, fixed multiple tooth replacement to removable implant tooth replacements.  Come to Addison Dental to find out which type of implant is right for you and take the first step to getting your smile back!

Bridges
If you haveteeth that cannot be preserved you will want to replace them with the best methods available. A dental bridge may be a viable option if the surrounding teeth are healthy.  In an implant, the prosthetic tooth is anchored directly into the bone. In a dental bridge, the gap created by the missing tooth is replaced with a prosthetic tooth that is attached to the two surrounding healthy teeth.
Weighing the pros and cons between implants or a bridge is something that you can discuss with the professionals at Addison Dental. (http://www.addisondental.com/)

Whitening
Everyone wants a set of pearly whites and today there are many options available to the consumer. It seems easy enough as we are bombarded by ads, coupons and even recipes for home remedies. It can also be confusing precisely because there are so many choices. This is why it is extremely important to discuss your options for whitening with a dentist. Whitening kits bought online can contain harmful and illegal chemicals that can be risky enough to cause permanent damage to your teeth.

Gum Disease
When asked by a patient if it was really necessary to floss their teeth every day, the wise dentist replied “Only the ones you want to keep!”  Brushing and flossing are the first line of defense when it comes to preventing the plaque buildup that causes gum disease, but plaque that builds up causes tartar and that needs to be removed by a dentist.

Gingivitis and periodontitis can be the result of not enough brushing or flossing but there are other risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, certain medications and a genetic susceptibility that can affect gum health. Regular cleanings with your dental care provider are essential.

Enamel Erosion
Enamel is the thin, hard layer that protects teeth from the abuse they go through every day. All of that grinding and chewing creates stress on the enamel. The foods we eat, medications, bacteria in plaque, etc. 

can alsocause much damage to that protective enamel. Signs of erosion are sensitivity, discoloration and pitting. Find out how you can prevent enamel erosion or restore damaged enamel the next time you come in for a cleaning!
