The Importance of Restorative Dental Procedures and Prosthetics
Did you know that just one little cavity can lead to serious dental and overall health problems, if it’s left untreated? Our teeth don’t heal naturally like our skin and bones do. When bacteria infiltrate tooth enamel and penetrate the underlying dentin, you experience a toothache caused by a cavity. Should that cavity grow deeper, the tooth’s root canals will be compromised. Bacteria in the canals of a tooth cause serious infection that can become blood borne, ultimately killing the tooth and potentially affecting whole-body health. People have been known to die from the repercussions of a tooth infection. When you look at your mouth as a gateway to your internal systems, the philosophy of mouth-body health becomes clear. The importance of caring for your oral health also takes on new importance. If you need fillings, crowns, a root canal procedure, or treatment for an abscess, don’t delay until it’s too late. Ask us about CareCredit, and allow Dr. Tran to help get your oral health on track, so you can enjoy life with a healthy smile.
Besides cavities, gum disease is another condition that can lead to serious health issues. Not only is gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, the leading cause of toot loss for American adults, but it is also linked to increased risk for heart disease, stroke, respiratory conditions, diabetes complications, low-weight births, and cognitive conditions, like Alzheimer’s disease. Gum disease affects about half of all Americans, but in the early stage of gingivitis, scaling and root planing treatment can help stop the disease. Because it’s chronic, once you develop gum disease, you’re more likely to experience flare ups throughout your life. If your gum disease requires treatment, don’t delay. Your gums cannot heal without professional care. Call us to discuss treatment options and payment plans, so we can renew your oral health and reduce your risk for more serious conditions.
Another important dental concern that may warrant using CareCredit is tooth replacement. You may think that tooth loss isn’t a big deal, especially if the teeth you lost don’t show when you smile. Statistics show otherwise. Research tells us that one lost tooth increases a person’s risk for losing more teeth over the next four years. Lost molars (back teeth) also make way for remaining teeth to shift. Teeth shift, or drift, to fill a space as the body tries to equalize the workload for remaining teeth. However, any shifting of teeth alters occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together when the mouth is shut). Bad occlusion, called malocclusion, can lead to TMJ disorder, bruxism (teeth grinding), and an unattractive alignment of front teeth. By replacing lost teeth, even molars, you will help your mouth and bite remain healthy, while keeping your smile full and attractive. For more information on tooth replacement costs and options, call us today.
“Affordable Dentist” Means Offering Financing Options
Perhaps you have dental insurance, but it will only cover part, or won’t cover any part, of a procedure you want. CareCredit can step in to fill the gap, helping with your out-of-pocket expenses, whether that’s a copay or the full cost of a procedure.
