Regular dental checkups ensure that your mouth stays at optimal health. At Still & Reece Dentistry, our general dentists want to approach your care in the most conservative, minimally invasive way possible—and that means offering treatment at the earliest signs of trouble. Some common problems we may find include:
Gum Disease: Nearly 80% of Americans have some form of gum disease. When found and treated early, your gum and bone tissues can be saved from the damage caused by unchecked bacteria. Untreated gum disease is the number one reason for adult tooth loss in the United States. We offer professional cleanings and gum disease therapy to remove the bacteria causing infection from both your teeth and gums.
Root Canal Infections: The same oral bacteria that can inflame your gums can also get inside teeth damaged by decay or trauma. The bacteria infect the interior tissues, often causing tooth pain. With our comfortable root canals (also known as root canal therapy), we remove the infected tissues and save as much tooth structure as possible. Keeping your teeth intact is better insurance against future dental problems.
Tooth Decay: Without a daily oral hygiene routine, it’s more and more likely you will get gum disease and cavities. When you brush and floss you break up the bacteria colonies growing on your teeth and gums. Bacteria cause the yellowish film you may see on your teeth—that’s plaque! Plaque can harden into calculus (also called tartar), and once that happens, only a professional teeth cleaning can remove it. Without regular checkups and consistent tooth care, your teeth will begin to decay. Decay weakens your teeth, and can make them turn black or break. At our Barnwell dental practice, we can treat your cavities with fillings and crowns.
Still & Reece Dentistry recommends that patients learn as much as they can about oral healthcare. The more educated a patient is about oral hygiene and common dental problems, the better we can co-create treatment plans that achieve dazzling, healthy smile results.
