- Sensitive Teeth
The pain form having sensitive teeth can come and go but you should still discuss your symptoms with your dentist. Your dentist can determine the cause and proper treatment.
- Essential Care
Brush your teeth at least twice daily. This will help in preventing tooth decay and gum disease. (Gum disease is the major causes of tooth loss.) Make sure you use a soft-bristle brush and an ADA accepted fluoride toothpaste to rid your teeth of food particles and plaque. You should replace your brush every two to three months.
Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles between each tooth and below your gumline.
- Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually emerge in the late teens or early twenties.
These teeth often lead to problems such as decay or infection in the mouth, especially when they emerge only partially or not at all. When their removal is indicated, Dr. Gordon will determine if the surgery can be performed with a local anesthesia in his office. Oftentimes, he will choose to refer the patient to the in-house Oral Surgeon, Dr. Dar, who can utilize a deeper sedation for the procedure.
- Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. Sadly, it can often progress undetected by the patient, as it is typically painless. Heredity, plaque control and habits such as smoking all play a role in the advancement of gum disease. Halitosis (bad breath) can be a sign of periodontal problems. Regular dental visits help to prevent these problems and are essential to timely diagnosis and treatment for the cases that do arise.
