Let's face it, dental clinics are the last place children want to visit. Their anxiety with dental procedures often lead them to endure the pain instead of seeking right treatment to cure it. The problem is that minor dental issues will progress in time and turn to more severe conditions. Fortunately, for both child and adult severe dental treatment anxiety, dental sedation is offered to comfort the patient.

Tooth decay can create a cavity on your teeth that can be painful or worsen as food debris gets into the hole. Dental fillings are the traditional treatment for restoring the damaged teeth so that it can function normally and pain-free. In the past, silver fillings are used to close the dental cavity; but concerns have cropped up regarding the use of amalgam or silver fillings. Amalgam fillings have mercury which is unsafe. Additionally, silver fillings often crack over-time.

Whether it's a tooth decay, an injury, or a gum disease, dental implants are the most convenient and permanent solution there is to replace missing teeth. The process of placing a dental implant is to replace the root of the tooth with a titanium screw, and placing a ceramic cap or tooth on top. It is securely screwed into the jawbone so it will stay firm and immovable.

While both dental veneers and Teeth whitening can address stained and discolored teeth, whitening cannot fix crooked, uneven and gaped teeth issues. But, porcelain veneers are the perfect treatment option for discolored or oddly-shaped teeth.

Fear of dental procedures is not only specific to children. There are many adult patients who have anxiety and fear of the dentist. As a result, patients who suffer from dental anxiety and fear often prolong or entirely put-off dental visits. This makes issues in the mouth worse, more costly and more time-consuming.

Having straight teeth improve one's look and affects their overall dental and physical health as well. Although most clients who opt for teeth straightening treatment have it done for aesthetic reasons, dentists highly recommend correcting crooked teeth because of the impact this has on overall oral health.

Gone are the days when teenagers clamor for colorful braces to correct teeth misalignment. Traditional metal braces may correct crowded and crooked teeth but in addition to being less attractive, it's hard to eat when wearing metal braces. In addition, proper dental care is compromised since food particles may get lodged in the metal brackets and can be difficult to remove and clean. If you are looking for an effective alternative to straightening your teen's teeth, Invisalign clear aligners are a perfect treatment option.

Tooth loss can occur for multiple reasons. Kids are susceptible to tooth decay that can eventually lead to tooth loss. Genetics and accidents can also contribute to the loss of teeth. Tooth problems are more than a cosmetic issue. Missing teeth can cause pain, alignment issues, additional gaps and spaces between teeth and a loss of self esteem. However, dental implants can permanently restore lost teeth.

Rheumatic Heart Disease has been long linked to untreated periodontal diseases. Heart valves get impaired as a result of the bacterial infection that initially infects the mouth and throat. Preventative dental care should not be taken for granted because this simple dental practice can prevent life-threatening diseases.
