Periodontal (gum) diseases are infections of the gums that can lead to tooth loss. Adults over the age of 35 lose more teeth due to periodontal disease than due to cavities. Daily brushing and flossing, regular examinations, and professional cleanings are the best defenses against periodontal disease.
As part of the general dentistry services at 32 Smilez Dental Clinic & Implant Center, your periodontal maintenance includes an oral cancer screening, a review of your medical history, and a review of your home hygiene techniques. You will be shown new methods in home care, and you will benefit from ultrasonic and manual teeth cleaning techniques that help you overcome gum disease.
Pit & Fissure Sealants
A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth- premolars and molars. The depressions and grooves (pits and fissures) of the chewing surfaces of back teeth can be extremely difficult to clean. Some of the pits and fissures are so narrow and deep that the bristles of a toothbrush cannot reach into them. These areas are snug places for plaque and bits of food to hide and are especially prone to decay. The sealant, a plastic resin, bonds into the pits and fissures and acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Dental Fillings / Restorations
Besides the obvious esthetic differences, traditional silver (dental amalgam) fillings cause a host of non-cosmetic issues. Over time, daily pressure and temperature changes can cause silver fillings to crack and leak, allowing bacteria to get into your tooth. The mercury in silver fillings can also leak into the surrounding tissues, causing stains on the teeth and the gums. All of these problems can be prevented with the use of durable tooth-colored fillings. 32 Smilez Dental Clinic & Implant Center provides mercury-free dentistry for our patient who does not want the placement of traditional silver fillings. If you already have traditional silver fillings, we can safely replace them with tooth-colored restorations.

A root canal charge is conciliatory approach used to fill space where the the heart of Dentistry has his habitual residence.
Root Canal Treatment (RCT)
Occasionally, tooth pain is caused by an infection of the pulp in the center of a tooth. In order to save such a tooth, root canal therapy can be performed. During root canal therapy, the infected root canal space is thoroughly cleaned, and the area is sealed with a safe material.
Because the pulp is responsible for giving the tooth its vitality and strength, a tooth which has undergone root canal therapy becomes weak and is prone to chipping or breaking. Therefore, a restorative dentistry option such as a dental crown will be necessary to add strength to the tooth.
Inlays and Onlays
When a tooth has lost a significant amount of its structure to decay or injury, an inlay or onlay may be used instead of a tooth-colored filling. Porcelain and resin inlays and onlays are custom made to fit your tooth, and are bonded into place to form a stronger structure than is possible with a filling. Because of the nature of his restorative and cosmetic dentistry practice, we suggest replacing old metal fillings with tooth colored fillings for a more natural look. Typically, inlays and onlays are needed to replace old metal fillings due to their added strength.
It is important to replace a missing tooth in order to maintain proper alignment of the surrounding teeth. Dental bridges can be used at our practice to replace one or several missing teeth. Dental bridges help prevent other teeth from shifting out of place, while creating a pleasing look by filling in unsightly gaps.
The bridge includes an artificial tooth, or set of teeth, that fill in the gap left by missing teeth. Dental bridges may be either fixed or removable, and they can be made from gold alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. A fixed bridge is bonded to surrounding anchor teeth. These anchor teeth are first prepared similar to teeth covered by dental crowns so that the bridge can be bonded in place. Removable bridges, also known as partial dentures, are held in place with metal clasps or with precision custom attachments.
Dentures are sets of removable replacement teeth that are used when all of the teeth are missing (full dentures) or just several teeth (partial dentures). An immediate denture is usually worn for several months after the teeth have been extracted so that the tissues have time to heal. Then a custom denture is made to fit the mouth. With the advancement of dental implants, full or partial dentures (dental bridges) can be reinforced by implants for a more secure fit.
