This is what we do to maintain your dental health

A dental implant is a replacement for a broken or missing tooth. Dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once placed.

Implants are used to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body. 

Titanium’s special property of fusing to bone is the biological basis of dental implant success.

When teeth are lost, the bone that supported those teeth is lost too. A dental implant stabilizes the bone, preventing its loss. Along with replacing lost teeth, implants can help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures — gum tissues, cheeks and lips.

Modern cosmetic restorations like dental implants, crowns, and bridges look and feel just like your own natural teeth. All result in improved appearance and oral health. How? Crowns preserve compromised teeth, and combined with bridges, they prevent teeth from drifting. Implants also prevent drifting and preserve bone density. All three procedures are directly responsible for improved self-confidence…which will, of course, keep you smiling!

 

 

Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. A bright white smile can make a person feel more attractive, confident and younger.

Teeth become stained for several reasons, tobacco use, coffee, tea and many other foods can leave ugly stains, discolor and dull your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing can not always remove these stains and no one wants to have a dull and lackluster smile.

At Bainbridge Dental Associates we are currently offering a Free Whitening Consultation. We provide both in-office and at-home teeth whitening procedures and with this in-depth consultation we will find the teeth whitening procedure that is the best fit for you.

If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth dentures can be used to replace what you are missing. This improves your health as well as your appearance. Dentures prevent the sagging of facial muscles, which can make a person look much older.

 

Complete dentures are used to replace teeth when there are no teeth remaining. The teeth are prefabricated acrylic which come in many sizes, shapes, and shades. They are processed into a custom made acrylic base which is made to intimately and comfortably fit the gum tissue in your mouth.

 

A partial denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth. It is held in place by your existing teeth. It is important these teeth be healthy in order to support your partial; often they need treatment prior to making the partial.

Why should you be concerned about periodontal (gum) disease?

 

Periodontal disease is so common that estimates of those affected range from between 75% to more than 90%. It is an insidious bacterial infection that begins with no symptoms and can progressively affect the appearance of your gums, cause bad breath, and eventually lead to tooth loss which can affect your ability to chew, speak, and socialize. It causes progressive bone loss which can alter the proportions of your face. Periodontal disease has also been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, premature births, kidney disease, oral cancer, lung disease and Alzheimer’s.

 

What causes it?

 

Plaque, the soft thin film your may feel on your teeth, is a natural biofilm with its own ecosystem of bacterial environments. If this film is allowed to build up, it hardens into calculus (or tartar) which can cause gum inflammation and bleeding. Calculus can damage the natural seal formed by your gums against the migration of oral bacterial into your bloodstream. The earliest and most common stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. As it progresses, it is called periodontitis.

 

How can you prevent or manage gum disease?

 

It’s very important that you maintain a home care routine to prevent plaque from becoming calculus. Daily plaque removal by brushing and flossing, maintaining adequate nutrition and minimizing stress, avoiding teeth grinding and clenching, and giving up tobacco can help. Keep your regular appointments so we can keep on top of things, because once calculus is formed, only your dental team can remove it. Thanks to modern dentistry, periodontal disease can be managed and even reversed!

Go Pro-Active!

 

Prevent cavities and gum disease

 

We know that bacteria has been linked to cavities and gum disease. A pro-active approach to your home care routine will go a long way to preventing oral health problems that can affect your appearance and overall health.

 

* Brush to prevent the buildup of the bacterial biofilm that can contribute to cavities and harden into the tartar that causes gum disease.

* Floss to reach below your gumline and in-between teeth where your brush can’t reach.

* Rinse with antibacterial mouthrinse. We can recommend alcohol-free products.

 

* Remineralize enamel that has weakened and become porous. We can help here in the office and can recommend and prescribe fluoride gels, mouthrinses, drops, or tablets that will keep your teeth strong and resistant to decay.

Gaps and what you need to know about filling them.

 

Crowns are needed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken, or cracked to be restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals and are also used on dental implants to replace missing teeth,

 

Bridges are used when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space.

 

Modern cosmetic restorations like dental implants, crowns, and bridges look and feel just like your own natural teeth. All result in improved appearance and oral health. How? Crowns preserve compromised teeth, and combined with bridges, they prevent teeth from drifting. Implants also prevent drifting and preserve bone density. All three procedures are directly responsible for improved self-confidence…which will, of course, keep you smiling!

 

Fact

Fact

A bridge is a combination of crowns and artificial teeth that closes a gap left by a missing tooth (or teeth), restoring your smile and redistributing the workload.

 

Fiction

If a person isn’t bothered by the appearance of a missing tooth, there’s no real reason for replacing it.

 

Fact

Placing a crown on a high-risk tooth as early preventive treatment saves time and money…maybe even your tooth!

You have to wait for extensive tooth damage before a crown is useful or beneficial
