You probably don’t give too much thought to your oral health when you aren’t having any problems. But teeth that aren’t healthy can have a dramatic effect on many aspects of your life.
Today, there are multiple studies by health organizations that demonstrate a link between poor oral health and general health conditions like heart and lung disease, diabetes, strokes, and pre-term or low birthweight babies.
Our goal at Doylestown Dental is to help you to focus on the things in life that are important by providing you with the tools you need to manage your oral health. You will find that our warm and friendly environment helps to put all members of your family at ease so we can deliver gentle, comprehensive dental care that results in healthy smiles.
Prevention Promotes Better Oral Health
Making sure your family stays current with semi-annual dental exams and professional cleanings is one of the most important things you can do for them. Preventive services like these combined with diligent oral hygiene are the keys to a problem-free smile.
During your semi-annual visits, our doctors will check your teeth for decay or gum disease and recommend appropriate treatment if necessary. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras are two examples of technology that we use to help us diagnose problems and share detailed information with you. Involving you in the process helps you to understand why a particular treatment is necessary.
Solutions for Restoring Damaged Teeth
If a tooth becomes damaged, it is essential that we restore it with a crown or tooth-colored filling as soon as possible. Your teeth depend on each other to do certain jobs, and if one becomes damaged, others have to do extra work, resulting in excess wear and tear.
Untreated decay gradually penetrates the innermost area of the tooth until it reaches the nerve, resulting in terrible pain. At this point, our doctors will recommend root canal treatment to preserve the tooth.
Extractions are never our first choice, but if something goes wrong and a tooth needs to be removed, you can feel at ease knowing that our doctors perform comfortable, gentle extractions. Afterward, we can talk about replacing the lost tooth with a dental implant, bridge, or partial denture.
