Dental Carries Treatment Dentistry Quincy MA
This is tooth or cavity decay. It’s a bacterial infection that causes destruction of the hard tissues of the teeth (enamel, cementum and dentin) it also causes demineralization of the teeth. Dental caries are as a result of an acid produced by bacterial fermentation of the food deposits accumulated on the surface of the teeth. As well if demineralization occurs that it exceeds other remineralization agents like fluoridated toothpastes and calcium and saliva the hard tissues are progressively weakened and broken down thus forming cavities, holes in the teeth (dental caries) this, up to date is the world’s most common dental problem affecting most people in the globe
The study of tooth and cavity decay (dental caries) is known as cariology. There are various treatments for dental caries depending on the extent of tooth destruction. Treatment can restore teeth to function properly however destruction of a large amount of tooth structure cannot be regenerated. Preventive measures such as dietary modifications and regular oral hygiene are advocated to avoid tooth and cavity decay. Mostly many dental health organization campaign and advocate for prophylactic and preventive measures for instance balanced diets, regular oral hygiene and visiting dentist regularly to check the teeth hence preventing dental caries.
Signs and symptoms of dental caries.
Signs in the earliest stages cannot be easily seen and majorly people with caries may not be aware of them. The first and earliest of tooth and cavity decay is the chalky white spot that appears at the surface of the tooth. This white spot is referred to as micro cavity or incipient carious lesion. If the white spot goes on to demineralize it turns brown which eventually turns into a cavitation. However, before cavitation the tooth can be regenerated and if a cavity is formed the tooth structure that has been lost cannot be recovered. If dental caries existed on the surface of a tooth, the lesion that was formed appears shiny and dark brown showing demineralization process had stopped, whereas an active demineralization is lighter and dull in color and appearance respectively.
Those areas that are affected are always soft and change in color. Once the enamel is destroyed together with the dentin the cavity is now more noticeable. When the decay goes through the enamel it exposes the dentinal tubules which are connected  to passages of the nerve of the tooth transcending to pain that can be worsening with exposure to heat, cold, sweet foods and drinks. A weakened tooth by serious decay sometimes can suddenly fracture even during normal chewing.
When the tooth decaying goes on to  an extent that the bacteria overwhelms the pulp tissues which is located at the centre of the tooth a toothache occurs with the pain being more constant. This can cause the death of pulp tissue thus infections are very common. The tooth then loses its sensitivity to cold or hot but it remains tender and vulnerable to pressure. Other symptoms for dental caries are bad breath with foul tastes. In severe cases the infection may spread to the nearby surrounding soft tissues leading to complications such as Ludwig angina and cavernous sinus thrombosis that are life-threatening.

Dental Implants Quincy MA:
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures without damaging the adjacent teeth. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime and have a success rate of up to 98%.
Dental implants can be divided into three parts:
- implant fixture ( or artificial root -usually made of titanium) that are surgically placed into the gum
- the abutment (a connector connecting the implant fixture and the final crown.) and
- a final crown (the tooth).
 It generally takes about 2-4 months of bone maturation / integration between the implant and the bone before the final tooth can be connected or loaded onto the implant fixture. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile as well as chewing function.

Preventative Dentistry Quincy MA:
Periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. Studies have shown that an estimated 75% of Americans reportedly have some form of periodontal disease. Many people nowadays, due to their hectic lifestyles, do not have a lot of time to maintain a good daily oral health care routine to prevent cavities and periodontal disease. Furthermore, gingivitis, the early stage of periodontal disease, is usually painless; you may not be able to detect it on your own.
 At Adams Family Dental, we stress the philosophy of early detection of periodontal disease to reduce the risk of permanent damage to teeth and gums thereby preventing more extensive and costly treatment in later years. It is imperative to have regular professional visits at least every six months or as scheduled by your dental hygienist. In this way, we will help you learn more about proper care for your teeth and gums. For developing dentition in children, we will sometimes place a protective dental sealant over the back teeth to protect those teeth against cavities.
