It is very important to take proper care of your mouth. It is also important to know when something more serious might be on the horizon. Throughout the day, your mouth is exposed to a wide range of bacteria. This makes it one of the most susceptible areas of your body for infection if not properly cared for. This is why it is so important to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once a day and do everything in your power to keep your teeth as clean as possible.
Our periodontist is available to treat periodontal disease or place implants.
There are different options to replace missing teeth, but when a tooth is extracted many times, the best option in terms of longevity and appearance is a dental implant (instead of a bridge or dentures). With an implant, a specially fabricated titanium cylinder is inserted through the gum line.
The replacement tooth is then inserted onto the implant. These dental implants can be offered for single missing teeth, groups of teeth or can be used to make dentures more retentive.
