The new auto #fluorescence #technology in allows Doctor Isabel David to detect #occlusal or #interproximal decay, even in its earliest stages, which can often be missed by the eyes or by x-rays. It allows to differentiate healthy from infected tissue in order to excavate only the tissue which is diseased.

There are often no symptoms. Gums can recede, leaving teeth vulnerable to decay, abscesses and lose all without any bleeding or tenderness. But many other people have at least minor symptoms, which can include the following.

Bleeding when brushing or #flossing

#Puffiness or tenderness of the gums

#Halitosis (bad breath)

Loose-feeling teeth

Without your gums to hold you teeth in place, your smile would literally fall to pieces! Healthy gums are the first step to complete oral health. Taking care of #periodontal problems is how we begin dental treatment with our new patients.

All though filling #cavities are very important, more people lose teeth due to periodontal disease. We want your restorations to last, so we make sure to keep your #gums #healthy.

Tooth cleaning and polishing and fluoride treatments are all part of your child’s prevention program. However, there is much more. For example, your pediatric dentist can apply sealants to protect your child from tooth decay, help you select a mouthguard to prevent sports injuries to the face and teeth, and provide early diagnosis and care of orthodontic problems. Your pediatric dentist is uniquely trained to develop a combination of office and home preventive care to insure your child a happy smile.

Air abrasion

Air abrasion is a procedure used to remove small areas of decay or to prepare a tooth for the placement of restorations or sealants. This procedure uses an air compression device to deliver tiny particles of aluminum oxide onto the surface of a tooth structure, thus removing decay. With air abrasion, discomfort is minimized and anesthesia may not be needed. Children and adults who are fearful of needles or the noise or vibration of a regular dental hand piece may prefer this option if it is available; however, air abrasion cannot be used as an alternative for every procedure.

Lasers can be a good alternative to the traditional drill, as anesthesia is used less frequently. Lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies. Currently, your dentist may use lasers for tooth whitening, periodontal (gum) disease therapy, and tooth decay removal. Laser therapy cannot be used as an alternative for every procedure.

What is cosmetic dentistry and how can it improve my smile?

Your dentist can perform a variety of cosmetic procedures to improve your smile—from subtle changes to major repairs. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen, or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces,

restore worn teeth, or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include teeth whitening, bonding, caps, crowns, veneers, and reshaping and contouring.
