Your Smile Is Our Success
Oral health is an important part of your overall health. Your mouth connects to the rest of your body. There is growing evidence linking periodontal and gingival disease to a variety of serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory disorders. Periodontal disease is one of the most common diseases in humans. Over time plaque and debris build up along the gum line and leads to inflammation of the gums and spreads to underlying bone structures. This can lead to loose or shifted teeth, tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath, poor eating abilities, and tooth sensitivity. Thankfully, with proper oral hygiene cleaning and a customized treatment plan together we can work on reducing future ailments related to your mouth!
Interim Stabilization IST
What is it?:
Also known as a temporary filling, an IST is an interim treatment for a chipped/broken tooth that helps to stabilize the disease process. It helps maintain the healthy tooth structure by releasing therapeutic ions into the cavity area until such time as you are able to have a permanent restoration.
Who can benefit?:
IST is a wonderful option for anyone with time, financial, travel or fear restraints. IST is great for anyone who may not always find it easy to get to a standard dental office and an IST will help maintain their comfort while waiting. No drilling required.
Fluoride Varnish is the treatment of choice for areas of decalcification, sensitivity and heavy plaque buildup as it helps to mineralize the tooth structure therefore providing it added strength and longevity. Compared to other fluoride applications, FV is a thick substance so it is easier to place and control within the oral cavity. As well as giving us the option to treat individual areas, or teeth. We have seen the benefits to many of our clients with temperature sensitivity during eating and or drinking as well as decreased sensitivity to brushing.
Sealants are a specialized coating placed on children's first adult molars that help prevent the onset of occlusal decay.
Molars have a large uneven biting surface with a variety of deep pits and fissures. The sealant material creates a barrier over the surface of the tooth, preventing bacteria from settling into these areas where there toothbrush can not reach and causing decay.
