When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are frequently extracted, often before they have even fully erupted. The reason for this is that people often lack room for them. This means that when they do erupt, they can press uncomfortably against neighboring teeth and even move them out of their alignment as they press in. They can also cause physical damage that will have to be dealt with. Because these teeth erupt at different times for different people, you may go longer than others you know before you have to arrange their extraction, or yours may have to occur at an earlier time. By keeping up with regular dental exams, you can stay informed about your oral health and learn when the time is right for removal. This is one of many important services that are provided during dental checkups at our Corona, CA dentist’s office. (more…)

Showing Off A Smile Improved By Veneers

There are different reasons why a person might be reluctant to show off their smile. Even if you are in an otherwise great mood, showing it off can make you uncomfortable because you are concerned about the color of your enamel, or about damages to your tooth structure that will draw unwanted attention. For these issues and others, our Riverside, CA dentist’s office can recommend cosmetic treatment to help. Through the use of porcelain veneers, we can actually take on many different types of flaws at one time. As a result, we can provide real benefits from treatment that only requires two appointments!

Preventing Oral Health Issues

It can be a relief to know that when you have a problem with your oral health, your Moreno Valley, CA dentist can take care of it while still preserving your natural smile. Even with access to dependable restorative treatments, you should still make preventing problems a priority.

During these appointments, we will provide support in the form of thorough teeth cleanings and careful studies of your teeth.

Schedule Tooth Bonding And Contouring Work

Until you do something about them, your smile flaws can take away your ability to project real confidence whenever your teeth are in view.

Fortunately, you can put problems with your appearance behind you with your dentist’s support. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can recommend a tooth bonding and contouring procedure to take care of any flaws that currently affect you.

The Benefits Of Invisalign Treatment

There are more benefits to orthodontic treatment than just the opportunity to change your smile for the better. With Invisalign treatment, you can improve the way you look and also take on the oral health issues that poor smile spacing can create.

At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can talk with you about what to expect from treatment, and we can help you explore other cosmetic services that can hide gaps, overlaps, and other spacing troubles.

Why Are Routine Teeth Cleanings Necessary?

When a person takes the time to brush and floss their teeth each day, they can feel confident in their oral health. While you (hopefully) keep up with good habits on a consistent basis, you should know that this is not all that you can do to protect yourself against problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You can—and should—also take advantage of the preventive services available from your Temecula, CA dentist during a routine dental exam and cleaning. Through these appointments, you stay better informed about your oral health, and you can receive early warnings about any problems that might require care. You are also protected because your teeth are professionally cleaned so that plaque and tartar buildup no longer pose a threat to your well-being. (more…)

Is Gum Disease A Serious Problem?

The threat posed by tooth decay should not be taken lightly, but you should also remember that it is not the only threat to your overall oral health. If you are not practicing good oral hygiene, you can leave yourself vulnerable to problems with gum disease. An infection can initially cause tissue inflammation and issues with sensitive tissues, or tissues that bleed easily; concerns about bad breath; and the formation of periodontal pockets. In time, as bacteria continue to spread on your teeth roots, you can have more severe issues to worry about, and it can become more difficult to keep the problem under control! At our Corona, CA dentist’s office, we can offer important in-office support during your routine dental exams and cleanings. We can also provide an evaluation to determine what kind of help could be required if gum disease is already an issue for you. (more…)

Severe Cavity? It May Require A Root Canal

You protect yourself against cavities both by keeping up with good oral hygiene at home, and by being consistent about preventive dental appointments. Unfortunately, people sometimes fall short of the right approach to preventive care, leaving them at risk not just for cavities but advanced decay. A severe problem with your tooth can lead to complications that require more involved restorative services. Fortunately, your Riverside, CA dentist’s office is prepared to help in this situation. If it is necessary to do so, we will provide a root canal to restore the health of a tooth that is affected by severe decay. After doing so, we can make sure that it remains safe by capping it with a custom dental crown. (more…)
