Dental Cleanings Q & A

Why is it important to get dental cleanings?

Professional teeth cleanings and routine checkups are a critical part of your oral health care strategy. Although you may maintain impeccable oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing daily, you can still benefit from the professional care

It takes specialized instruments to really remove tough tartar, and we can see parts of your mouth that are completely out of your view.

Aside from keeping your teeth clean, it’s important to come in for routine dental exams to prevent minor problems from developing into major ones. For example, it’s much simpler to fill a small cavity than restore a severely decayed tooth.

Regular dental cleanings:

  • Prevent cavities and tooth loss
  • Brighten your smile
  • Freshen your breath
  • Increase the overall health
  • Prevent costly dental procedures, thereby saving money

Depending on the condition of your teeth, Dr. Castro may recommend getting a cleaning once or twice per year.

What happens during a dental cleaning?

The entire cleaning should be relatively quick and painless.

First, we use special instruments to gently scrape plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then, they polish your teeth with a rotating toothbrush and gritty paste. After you rinse your mouth, we may also apply a fluoride gel to strengthen your teeth.

Once your teeth are clean, we reviews tips on how to maintain a healthy smile with proper home care. These tips may include:

  • Techniques for effective brushing
  • Daily flossing
  • Using mouthwash

What does a dentist check for during a routine exam?

Dr. Castro may perform a comprehensive routine exam after your dental cleaning. She checks your entire mouth, including all teeth and soft tissues, for any abnormalities.

We are going to refer you to have a FREE OPG xray before your appointment with us for us to see and catch any problems early on before they develop into significant issues.

During your exam, Dr. Castro checks for the following oral health problems:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth grinding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Signs of oral cancer

If you want to maintain a healthy set of teeth, set up a regular schedule of dental cleanings and preventive care exams with Dr. Castro by calling or clicking online today.

Fillings & Restorations Q & A

Fillings & Restorations Q & A

What are tooth restorations?

If your tooth is decayed, damaged, or missing, you may need a tooth restoration. Common examples of tooth restoration procedures include:

  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures

How do I know if I need a filling or tooth restoration?

Dental fillings and restorations fix problems caused by decay, grinding, or other damage to the surface of your teeth. Often, decay causes a cavity to form in your tooth.

If you have tooth decay, you’re not alone. Cavities and tooth decay rank high among the world’s most common health problems. You may need a filling if you experience any of these common signs and symptoms of cavities:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Spontaneous tooth pain that starts without any obvious cause
  • Visible holes or pits in your tooth
  • Pain while eating or drinking something sweet, hot, or cold
  • Black, brown, or white stains on the surface of your tooth
  • Discomfort when biting down

As with any health problem, early detection is key. The best way to prevent a costly tooth restoration is to get routine exams on a regular basis.

What are my options for dental filling materials?

Dental fillings come in a variety of different materials. Talk to Dr. Castro about the pros and cons of each to determine which type of filling is right for you.

Common materials for dental fillings include:

  • Tooth-colored composite resins
  • Silver amalgam
  • Gold fillings

What should I expect from my dental filling or restoration procedure?

Dental fillings are simple and common procedures that require no downtime for recovery. First, Dr. Castro prepares your mouth by numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic. This may leave your mouth numb for an hour or so after your appointment. Most fillings don’t require sedation, and you’re conscious throughout the procedure.

If you have extensive tooth decay or serious damage, Dr. Castro may recommend a more complex tooth restoration procedure.

If one or more teeth are missing, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible. A missing tooth can cause the rest of your teeth to shift or lead to jawbone deterioration. In these cases, Dr. Castro may suggest replacing missing teeth with a bridge or dental implants.

If you suspect you may have tooth decay, act quickly to save your tooth. Call Dr. Castro or book an appointment online today.

Crown Lengthening (“Gummy” Smile, Overgrown Gums)
VIEW

Crown Lengthening ("Gummy" Smile, Overgrown Gums)

Crown lengthening can be a confusing term to some since it sounds like it involves adding length to the tooth. A more accurate term is crown exposure since gum tissue is cut away to reveal more of the tooth. You may consider crown lengthening for cosmetic reasons if you want to improve a “gummy” smile. It could also be performed if not enough of your crown is visible to support a filling, dental crown, or other restoration.

Best Candidates

If you are considering crown lengthening, you should be in good general health, especially when it comes to the gums. Problems, like periodontal (gum) disease, may need to be treated before crown lengthening is performed. Most often, crown lengthening is done for cosmetic reasons to correct a “gummy” smile. In these instances, excess gum tissue could be removed to improve the ratio of tooth to gums and provide you a raised, even gumline. In some cases, crown lengthening can also be needed to perform a restoration. We may want to reveal more of the tooth so as to place a crown, bridge, or filling.

What To Expect

To begin the procedure, local ansesthesia is applied to the needed areas to minimize your discomfort. You may discuss other sedation methods in your consultation to help keep you calm and comfortable during the process. Once your mouth is prepared, the gum tissue is removed in small slivers to gradually reveal more of the teeth, and the gumline will be shaped for an even look. Once the crown lengthening process is complete, we will close the gums to stop bleeding and clean your mouth.

Recovery

After your crown lengthening procedure, your mouth could be sore and swollen. Over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can usually be used to lessen your discomfort, but we may prescribe pain medication and/or antibiotics. It may be good to adhere to a liquid or soft food diet for many days as your mouth heals. You should keep your mouth clean at home with mouthwash and soft brushing, but avoid flossing. In some cases, you may need to make a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing. We will also continuously check your gums at your annual dental exam.

Insurance Coverage

The cost of a crown lengthening procedure may vary, depending on why the treatment is being performed. Dental insurance providers may cover a portion of the cost in some scenarios, but they may not. In any event, our financial team will contact your provider to determine what your out-of-pocket costs will be before discussing your options for payment. If you do not have dental insurance, our financial team will help estimate your costs in your consultation and give you more information on low-interest financing that could help make your dental treatments more affordable.
