Common Dental Problems
Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for a healthy smile. This article explores common dental problems, including bad breath, bruxism, canker sores, cold sores, dry mouth, and tooth fractures, providing insights into their causes and potential remedies.
Patient Comfort
We do everything we can to make our patients as comfortable as possible. Many of our patients actually enjoy their appointments because they have some quiet time to lean back on a pillow while they are wrapped in a blanket and watch a movie while we are taking care of their dental health.
TMJ / TMD
TMD, or Temporomandibular Dysfunction, is a common condition that affects the jaw joint, often causing symptoms such as clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth, headaches, tired jaw muscles, and ear congestion.
Oral Surgery
Family Dental Group offers comprehensive dental trauma treatment, including addressing injuries to teeth, soft tissues, and surrounding structures. This includes addressing issues like tooth displacement, fractures, avulsions (knocked-out teeth), and more.
Pediatric Dentistry
Your child's first pediatric dental visit should happen within six months of the first tooth eruption, promoting a lifetime of good dental habits and early prevention of dental problems. Regular dental check-ups are recommended at least twice a year, with some children at higher caries risk needing more frequent visits.
Dental FAQs
Top most frequently asked questions to our doctors
Sealants
Sealants are one of the easiest preventive dental procedures that can be done. Sealing your teeth can be done in a single dental visit and is entirely painless!
Root Planing
Root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is a dental procedure used to remove tartar below the gumline and smooth rough tooth root surfaces for reattachment of the gums.
Tooth Scaling
Tooth scaling is a dental procedure that effectively removes hardened tartar above the gumline, preventing dental problems like cavities and gum disease. For more advanced cases with tartar below the gumline, a deeper cleaning called scaling and root planing is performed to address periodontal issues and bone loss.
Oral Exam
New patients receive a comprehensive examination which includes a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, a review of medical history, and a clinical and radiographic examination of all the teeth. A recall oral exam is performed on established patients to determine any changes in dental and health status since the previous visit.
Gum Disease
Periodontal disease, affecting over 80% of Americans by age 45, is an infection that damages gums and the supporting bone around teeth due to plaque build-up. This condition can lead to tooth loss and may contribute to other health issues such as diabetes and heart disease.
At Home Dental Care
At-home dental care offers convenience and empowers individuals to take charge of their oral health daily. Consistent practices like brushing, flossing, and using fluoride products can prevent dental issues and promote a confident, long-lasting smile.
Preventative Dentistry
Full Dentures
A full denture is a dental prosthesis designed to replace all of teeth on either the upper or lower arch—or both arches. Full dentures require support from your gums and jaw bone and may require the use of a special adhesive to help lock the denture into place
Snap-On Smile
A brand new smile with Snap-On Smile is extremely fast and painless (did we mention fast?). Virtually any smile is possible and during your visit at Family Dental Group, we will sit with you and discuss different shade and style options for your new smile. The entire process is customizable to your specific needs and wants.
Fillings
A filling is a way to restore a damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape. When you get a filling, the dentist will remove the decayed material from the tooth, clean the affected area, and then fill the area with a material designed for fillings. There are many types of filling material available, ranging from gold to porcelain.
Crowns
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a tooth with a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape, and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth. With the advances in technology, we now have the ability to make ceramic crowns with no metal.
Bonding
Bonding can fix minor cosmetic dental problems such as closing small gaps between teeth, adding tooth length, or changing the overall shape of a tooth by bonding a tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth. Bonding a tooth-colored composite restoration can also restore fractured teeth. When compared to porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, bonding is the least expensive dental procedure that can fix cosmetic dental issues.
