Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can damage your smile and negatively impact your oral health. If not treated in the early stages, periodontal disease can ultimately result in a wide array of dental issues which can easily affect your overall health. Gum disease can also be linked to other health concerns, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and much more.
We work to care for your gum health through exceptional periodontal therapy and stronly encourage a healthy hygiene program. However, if gum disease is in an advanced stage, we do offer several solutions to help, including scaling and root planing. With modern treatment, we work to remove harmful bacteria and help restore the health of your gums.
Gums are the foundation of a healthy smile, and our expert team is here to help you protect them!
Unfortunately, if a cavity is left untreated, it can ultimately reach the nerve inside of your tooth. This may lead to infection and fill the tooth area with damaging bacteria.
In these situations, a root canal may be necessary to save your natural tooth. Dr. Stanaland has performed numerous root canals on patients throughout the years through high-quality and comprehensive care.
After a root canal, your tooth will finally enjoy real relief.
It can really hurt to chip, crack, or break a tooth. Teeth can be damaged in a number of ways, and the damage can be slight or extensive depending on the condition of your teeth and the type of injury.
Unfortunately, there is no permanent way to fix a broken tooth without seeing a dentist. The best thing you can do in the meantime is to address the pain and protect your tooth and the inside of your mouth to avoid further injury.
If you do happen to break or chip a tooth, you should rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it, according to the American Dental Association (ADA). Apply pressure to stop any bleeding, and place a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling.
If you can find the piece of broken tooth, wrap it in wet gauze and bring it with you to the dentist.
If you have broken or chipped a tooth, please call our office today at (432) 682-5729.
Anyone can experience tooth pain, and tooth pain can have many potential causes.
The most common cause is inflammation of your dental pulp due to tooth decay. Complications of periodontal (gum) disease, such as gum recession and swelling, are the second most common cause of dental pain.
Other potential causes of tooth pain include:
-- Tooth enamel erosion
-- Cracked or broken teeth
-- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
-- Recent dental treatments (ex: fillings or root canals)
You may even suffer from tooth pain if you have a sinus infection that causes severe swelling and compresses your dental nerves.
