Tooth Issues and Problems – The list below will give you some basic insight into these issues and emphasize the need to practice good dental care and have regular dental visits. If you notice any of these problems, call the dental office immediately.
BROKEN AND CHIPPED TEETH can and must be repaired as soon as possible in order to save the teeth. This can be done with bonding, dental veneers or crowns.
CROOKED AND GAPPED TEETH can also be treated with bonding, dental veneers or crowns. This should be done to help with oral hygiene and for cosmetic purposes. Smiling is one of the nicest things a person can do.
ELEMENTAL MERCURY is found in some dental fillings and is a growing concern as mercury is a poison. People allergic to mercury, pregnant women and those who have a problem with kidney function should avoid mercury fillings, or have them removed completely.
LOOSE AND MISSING TEETH can be healed or replaced with various options such as a splint, bridge, or dental implant.
ROOT CANALS are the bane of most everyone’s dental care. If one needs to be done, there is no need to fear it as the dentist will make sure that the procedure is as comfortable and painless as possible. Root Canals are done when all other procedures are ruled out and allow you to keep your own teeth for many years to come.
WISDOM TEETH are the last to come in. They are normally removed as soon as possible in order to avoid their roots from growing into the roots of other teeth, causing overcrowding or even becoming impacted.
