Treating Dental Abscesses
An abscess occurs when the tissue surrounding the tooth or gum becomes infected. This infection can spread to the base of the tooth and cause further problems. The causes of an abscessed tooth can include poor dental hygiene, excessive consumption of processed meats and dairy and other health issues. Fortunately, we can treat abscesses in a way that alleviates all symptoms of the condition, including relieving any associated pain.
If you're not a fan of metal braces, you should consider our Invisalign treatment. Invisalign consists of clear aligners that are custom-made in accordance with your dental structure. They are engineered to provide the right amount of pressure to your teeth in the right places to gradually move them into perfect alignment.
There are a number of reasons that teeth become discolored or dull over time. Some of the most common causes involve eating, drinking and lifestyle habits, such as eating candy, drinking coffee and smoking. Luckily, our dentist can help you combat these issues with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque buildup assume that their only option is a tooth extraction. Fortunately, that's where crowns come into the picture. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth by covering the affected area and preventing further damage from occurring. Some procedures that require dental crowns are as follows:
- Chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- A root canal treatment can also be the cause as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- You may also need a crown to save weak and damage-prone teeth.
- A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons.
