Should You Get a Root Canal or Extraction?
Posted on 7/20/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
We will always do everything possible to save your tooth and an extraction is always the last resort when no other treatment option is available. Even when you suffer a blow to the tooth and it's hanging by a thread; our dentist can save it in many instances. A root canal has several advantages over a tooth extraction and while a root canal is more expensive than getting a tooth extracted, it is always better to have your natural teeth. If one of your teeth gets badly infected, there are two options, a root canal or an extraction, so we will try to explain when you should get one versus the other. When to Get a Root Canal A root canal is usually performed when there is an infection in the tooth. Our dentist drills a hole to clean and drain the infection in the pulp. A root canal can also be used when there is a break or fracture in the tooth, for example, if you suffer a blow to the face. If this case, you may also need a crown to be added on top, to protect the tooth. When an Extraction is Needed Sometimes, despite all our efforts, a tooth cannot be saved, and a tooth extraction is needed. You may also need a tooth extraction if you need your wisdom teeth removed because they are impacted and are shifting the rest of your teeth. Whether you're getting a root canal or a tooth extraction, there is a risk involved in both procedures, as each one is invasive. The removal is always more problematic because it can cause an infection depending on the extent of the problem and it leaves an empty space in the mouth, which can also cause teeth alignment issues. We will explain the pros and cons of getting a root canal versus and tooth extraction and answer any questions you may have....

How Bonding Helps with Dental Discoloration
Posted on 7/10/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Are you one of those people who is suffering from dental discoloration? If so, you have no doubt considered getting veneers. Veneers, to be sure, are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. Still, between the expense and the fact that your teeth may need to be reshaped, many people simply are not comfortable choosing veneers. If this is you, you may want to consider dental bonding. This process is fast, easy, and considerably cheaper than veneers. What's more, it can help you get the kind of smile that you have always wanted, and you will find the whole procedure to be quick and simple. What is Dental Bonding? Simply put, dental bonding is a treatment that uses a resin to repair damaged teeth or adjust the size of teeth that need cosmetic procedures. It is frequently used in place of amalgam fillings due to the fact that it can blend in with the teeth more easily. Bonding is placed on the tooth directly over the existing material. This means that no reshaping is necessary—something that many of our patients find to be a big plus. How Can Bonding Help Discoloration? Bonding is not used only to repair damaged teeth. It can be applied over a tooth that has become severely discolored to help give it a new appearance. In the event of a tooth that does have a crack, you will discover the tooth frequently becomes discolored in that area because it may be difficult to keep the cracked area clean. In a case like that, using bonding to repair provides dual benefits: repairing the tooth, and adjusting the discoloration. If you have questions about dental bonding, please feel free to give us a call, or drop by the office. Let's talk about how you can get a newer, brighter smile....

What Does Tartar Do to Your Teeth?
Posted on 6/20/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Most people have heard of the word tartar. They may think it is a sauce they use when they eat fish, but they may also know it has something to do with their teeth. That is where many people's knowledge of tartar ends. They do not know what it really is and the impact it has on your teeth. It is something that people need to learn. The Basics of Tartar Tartar is the buildup of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a soft film that is full of millions of bacteria that forms on the teeth. When the plaque is not removed from the teeth, it hardens and forms tartar. The tartar will eventually mineralize on the teeth. This is something that happens without people realizing it. While may ignore the buildup of tartar, they need to learn what it means to the health of their teeth and gums. The tartar has bacteria in it. Once it has hardened, it is not easy to remove. It will require the work of a dental professional to remove the tartar before any real damage happens. If the tartar is not treated, different problems can occur. The bacteria break down the tooth enamel. This can lead to cavities and tooth decay. That is what happens when tartar forms on the teeth. If the tartar forms below the gum lines, the problems get worse. Gum disease and gingivitis can cause significant damage. That can lead to periodontitis. It is like a train that keeps gaining speed the longer it is left untreated. The best thing a person can do is prevent tartar from forming. Good oral hygiene practices help prevent tartar build up. Daily brushing and flossing along with regular visits to the dentist is also important. If tartar does form, the sooner it is taken care of the better. Take a moment and contact the dental professionals at our office for more information about tartar and oral hygiene. We are happy to help....
