Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, and for many people, once every six months is not often enough. Besides checking for cavities, your dentist and hygienist are evaluating the health of your gums for possible gum disease, which may harbor bacteria or infection that could create other health problems. Your head and neck region are examined for infection and oral cancer, since many diseases of the body show symptoms and signs in the oral cavity. To ensure the best preventive care for you and your body, visiting your dentist at least twice a year is recommended.

If your tooth is damaged by decay, a filling will restore its normal function and shape. The process is routine and involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and filling it with either a composite or metal filling.

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fractures in small to midsize fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer their fillings to look more natural.

Gold fillings, also called inlays or onlays, are made of an alloy of gold, copper, and other metals. This type of dental filling is usually considered the most durable, lasting 20 years or more. Gold fillings also require more than one office visit to place because they require impressions manufactured at a dental laboratory.

Some bad breath is related to food debris, and over-the-counter mouth rinses work just fine. However, bacteria in the mouth, which can cause gum disease and decay, can also bring on chronic bad breath (halitosis). If bad breath seems to stay with you, your dentist can help remove the problem and keep it under control.

As always, your Great Expressions dentist will discuss your options with you and create the right plan to help you look your best.

Most dentists today recommend dental implants as the most natural, functional, and aesthetically pleasing option to replace missing teeth. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts, which protrude through the gums, are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

A bridge is another option where one or more existing teeth are used to hold the “suspended” replacement tooth in the area of the missing tooth. “Partials” allow patients to keep their remaining healthy teeth, and replace missing teeth to restore form and function. Precision partials use fixed crowns and special attachments to secure the partial and eliminate the need for conventional clasping methods. You should discuss the options and your desires with your Great Expressions Dental Centers dentist, before deciding on a method of treatment.
