Stay calm. Focus on stopping the bleeding and protecting the injured tooth or area by following the appropriate instructions in this section.
Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages which saves unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.
Braces / Orthodontics
The most commonly known orthodontic treatment is braces: an orthodontic appliance used to straighten teeth and correct bad bites. Braces can be prescribed for teens, adults, and children who have permanent teeth.
Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets.
A dental crown restores a tooth's shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant.
A filling repairs and restores the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear.
Gum Disease / Periodontics
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums and tissues that support your teeth. It is caused most often by the build-up of plaque and tartar when teeth are not routinely brushed and flossed.
Root Canal / Endodontics
An endodontic treatment saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp becomes inflamed or infected. If it is not treated promptly, pain or a tooth abscess results. Endodontic treatment is also known as a "root canal."
A veneer improves the appearance of the visible front surface of a tooth by covering it with a wafer-thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored porcelain.
Tooth whitening enhances the brightness of natural teeth; but it's not for everyone. Discuss it with your Dentist before you take action.
Wisdom Teeth / Oral Surgery
Third molars, also called wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt in a person's mouth and are the ones least needed. While the removal of wisdom teeth is the most well-known type of oral surgery, there are many reasons why oral surgery may be required.
