Frequently Asked Questions
My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?
Generally, brushing too hard causes bleeding gums. In some instances, this condition may be caused by the early stages of gum disease, which is known as gingivitis. With our help, you can learn how to brush your teeth with the right amount of pressure. Our goal is to help you develop great oral health habits that will allow you to keep your teeth healthy and white.
For patients who show signs of gum disease, we will typically suggest they undergo periodontal therapy. If this condition is left untreated, it will lead to tooth loss. Many scientific studies have linked gum disease to a host of other conditions like strokes and heart attacks. Rather than putting your health in jeopardy, allow our team to address your gum problems.
Once we have begun to treat your gum disease, you can get information on how to reduce these flare ups. One of the best ways to diminish the severity of your gum disease is by brushing and flossing twice a day. The more plaque you have on your teeth, the higher your risk of gum disease. The last thing you want is to lose your teeth due to your own negligence. With the right brushing and flossing routine, you can keep your teeth and gums damage free.
Another important thing you should do is schedule routine cleanings. Our team of dental professionals will clean your teeth to remove plaque buildup. During these cleanings, we will also inspect your teeth and gums thoroughly. By doing this, we are able to find and address dental issues before they get severe.
Failing to act when you notice signs of gum disease will only put your oral health in jeopardy. Our professionals will educate you on the most effective remedies for gum disease. Instead of ignoring the fact your gums are bleeding, take this as a sign something is wrong. For years, we have helped our patients fix their dental issues. We provide our clients with the care and tools they need to keep their smile luminous and healthy.
What are crowns in an hour?
By utilizing the power of CEREC technology, our team is able to create customized crowns, onlays and inlays around an hour’s time. With the use of this technology, our clients are able to get the custom-fitted porcelain crowns they need. This means there is no need to worry about temporary crowns or even follow up visits. We make it simple.
Are lasers used at your office?
Yes. During procedures used to treat damage to a patient’s soft tissue, we utilize the power of lasers. Whether performing crown lengthening procedures or doing biopsies, we have found a laser can make things much easier for the patient. Laser surgery means you won’t need stitches and can minimize the amount of post-surgery bleeding. We also use a hard tissue laser that allows us to remove decay without using a drill. The bone grafts we perform are also done with a laser.
