Teeth Cleaning. How Long has it Been?

The Importance of Hygiene Visits (Teeth Cleaning)
We want you to have the brightest smile and the healthiest teeth. One of the most important reasons to visit a dentist is to keep your teeth clean and identify any emergency dental problems you may be experiencing. Having your teeth professionally cleaned can identify dental problems that you may not be aware of. Plaque and tartar can form even with meticulous brushing. When tartar collects below the gumline, gum infection can result and can lead to tooth loss or gum disease.

Research also has proven a link between the advanced stages of gum disease and serious health problems. Diabetes, stroke, and heart disease are just a few of the risks. We recommend regular cleanings by our hygienist to help you keep overall good dental health. In fact, we are currently offering a new patient rate of $99 for a cleaning and full set of x-rays.

Gum Disease Treatment

Preventing the Number One Cause of Lost Teeth
If gums start to bleed while brushing or flossing, or any teeth become loose, it is important to have these symptoms checked. They are often a sign of infected gums, and this disease can be controlled and reversed during the early stages with nonsurgical methods. Regular checkups also help prevent the onset of periodontal disease, as sometimes these symptoms don’t occur when there is infection.

Gum Disease Treatment Dentist Savannah GA Gum Disease Can Contribute to Heart Disease and Even Stroke
Many patients may not be aware that periodontal disease can have an effect on more than just your teeth. Medical research has revealed that there is a link between bacterial infections of the gums and the onset or worsening of strokes, cardiovascular problems, and diabetes. It is clear that gum disease can result in more serious problems than losing your teeth. As the American Dental Association has determined that 8 out of 10 adults have infections in their gums, dentists are considering this to be an epidemic health risk.
As the bacteria from the infected gums travels throughout the bloodstream, it has the potential to affect your vital organs. The American Academy of Periodontology reports, “studies found periodontal infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of premature, underweight births, and pose a serious threat to people whose health is already compromised due to diabetes and respiratory diseases.”


Now the Good News
We advise our patients to come into our office immediately with any of the symptoms of infected gums, as once the infection reaches an advanced stage the treatment will be surgery. In milder stages, the problem can be reversed with nonsurgical procedures and improved daily dental hygiene. With most dental insurance plans, both types of procedures are covered.

Missing Teeth - Dental Care Savannah GA Is There a Problem with Missing Teeth?
Most teeth are lost because of gum disease and not accident or decay, as many assume. It is important to maintain a full set of teeth, as even one missing tooth can let the other teeth move or shift. This affects chewing, which lessens the amount of nutrients you absorb from your food. It may also become more difficult to chew, so softer, less nutritious foods will be consumed, which can result in an increase in weight. Speech can become slurred, resulting in embarrassment and less desire to socialize. Eventually, your face will take on a “sunken” look, making you appear much older than your age.
We offer you natural-looking implants that give you a full smile and complete functionality of teeth. We can replace one or many teeth with implants. Your confidence will be restored when your missing teeth are replaced.

Clear Orthodontics Dentist

Orthodontics - Clear Dental Braces Dentistry Savannah GAOrthodontics – The Clear Alternative
If you have always wanted straight teeth, but have not wanted to wear noticeable braces, we have a solution for you! We are happy to recommend to our patients Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ aligners. They are innovative orthodontics that are so clear they’re invisible, and they correct your smile in only 9 – 15 months! They address all the problems of crossbite, underbite, overbite, gaps, and overcrowding.
With state-of-the-art technology, 3-D computer imaging will produce the complete treatment plan for repositioning your teeth to a beautiful smile. Sets of transparent, thermoplastic aligners are made to fit your teeth and with the first set you wear, your teeth will begin to be gently repositioned to the desired alignment. Approximately every two weeks, you will advance to the next set of aligners as progress is made toward your goal. Evaluation will be made in our office every four to eight weeks. The total time for treatment is based on individual needs.

Straight Teeth - Invisible Dental AlignersBoosting Your Confidence
Although traditional braces work well, there are advantages to the Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems. Most wearers choose this option because they are nearly invisible. They are only noticeable if someone looks at them extremely close up. This lets you feel confident throughout your treatment.
As there are no metal or wires that need adjustments, you will have fewer visits to our dental office. There is no mouth irritation from these comfortable, one-piece aligners, and no bulky headgear to wear. The best part is you can eat whatever you want, as they can easily be taken out for eating and cleaning. There are no worries about plaque building up on the surface of your teeth during treatment, as you can remove the aligners to thoroughly brush your teeth.

How Enamel Protects Your Teeth

What Causes Tooth Enamel Damage?
Enamel is kind of like the shell of an egg: it protects the softer, more vulnerable part of the tooth inside.
But unlike an eggshell, the thin layer of enamel is tough.
In fact, enamel is the hardest substance in the body. It can withstand decades of biting, chewing and crunching — with some luck and good dental care.
