Go from grim to grin with a little brush up work!
Over time, even the brightest smiles can fade. Even with proper brushing and flossing, tartar can build up, enamel can wear thin and teeth can chip or decay. Normal dental wear and tear can take a turn for the worse, causing disease to occur.
Trust this pearl of wisdom—it’s imperative to visit the dentist at least twice a year for routine cleanings (more if you have a periodontal disease or other dental issue), and annually for x-rays and other oral maintenance services to keep your teeth and gums in the best shape, and color, possible.
Preventive dental therapy includes regular teeth cleanings and checkups as routine care. It is the goal at Smile Center Orlando to help those individuals who visit the dentist regularly to control the buildup of calculus and stain.
Removing or extracting a tooth, which is more commonly called “pulling” a tooth, is usually the last course of action to take in preventive dentistry, but at times it is necessary to remove one tooth to properly care for other teeth.
Implants look, feel and function like a natural tooth. Dental implants are designed to replace a missing tooth with a fake tooth that can stand alone in the mouth and function like a natural tooth.
As we all have heard, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure;” this saying is especially true when it comes to proper dental care. Sealants are a great preventive treatment for children.
A root canal, or non-surgical endodontic therapy, may be recommended for a tooth that has been damaged by deep decay, a large filling, fracture or trauma due to a direct physical impact or heavy bite.
