Regular Exams and Cleanings
Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your tooth health. During your regular exam, we will:
- Check for any problems
- Look for cavities or tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of dental disease
- Perform a thorough teeth cleaning
Your regular exam will take about 1 hour. Each regular exam includes a detailed tooth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface.
Visiting our office every six months gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about any questions you may have about your oral health. Regular exams are offered by appointment only, so please contact our practice today at (855) 263-4605 to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
Bonding is a inexpensive way to repair slightly chipped, broken or misaligned teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is put onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling bonds with your tooth, and because it comes in a many tooth-colored shades, it closely imitates the appearance of your natural teeth.
Tooth bonding can also be used for tooth fillings, instead of silver . Many patients prefer bonded fillings because it is much less noticeable than the color of silver. Bonded fillings can be used on front or back teeth, depending on where the tooth is, and how badly it decayed.
Bonding is also less expensive than other treatments and can usually be completed in one visit to our office in Canaan 06018. However, bonding can stain and is easier to break than other treatments. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor. The bonding can be easily patched or repaired in one visit to any of our locations in Canaan CT.
There are times when you have to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has formed wrong, or has long roots that prevent it from falling out as it would normally, and the tooth has to be taken out to make room for the permanent tooth to come out. At other times, a tooth might be so decayed and rotted, that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, so your doctor at 06018 Dentistry may recommend replacing it with a bridge or implant. Infection, misalignment of the teeth, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also demand the removal of a tooth.
Once a tooth has been removed, surrounding teeth may shift, causing issues with chewing or jaw function. To avoid these problems, your dentist may recommend that you replace the tooth with and implant or bridge.
