Whether you’re experiencing pain and want relief, want an oral check up or require advice on achieving your best smile, Warren Camden Dental Can help
1. Root Canal Treatment
A root canal treatment can save a badly infected or damaged tooth. The tooth may have become infected or damaged by decay, repeated dental work, wear and tear, gum disease, cracked fillings or an injury to the tooth.
Saving your own tooth if possible is important. It works better than an artificial tooth for biting and chewing. Losing a tooth can lead to other problems in the mouth. Replacing a lost tooth with an artificial one often needs more complex dental procedures. Root canal treatment is often the best way of saving a tooth. And at Warren Dental Camden, we’ve incorporated the most innovative techniques to ensure your comfort throughout the entire procedure!
2. Cracked Teeth
A broken or cracked tooth can happen when you least expect it. Perhaps you bit down on something hard or an old filling finally gave out. Although the crack left behind may not hurt, it’s essential to treat your tooth as soon as possible. Otherwise, the remaining tooth structure is at a greater risk of breaking apart further.
Depending on the extent of your crack, treatment could include bonding, replacing the filling, covering your tooth with a crown, or even root canal therapy. The sooner you treat it, the less extensive the treatment needs will be.
At Warren Dental Camden, we’re meticulous about the treatment we provide. During your cracked tooth repair, we’ll recommend the same type of restoration that we would for our own teeth.
3. Worn Down Teeth
Severe tooth wear or erosion can alter your smile’s appearance and cause sensitivity. Ultimately, pinpointing the cause of your tooth wear is the first step in determining the best treatment.
Common reasons behind flattened or broken teeth include:
- Excessive clenching and grinding
- Crooked teeth (malocclusion)
- Habits, such as nail-biting
4. Tooth Decay
Tooth decay is damage that occurs to your teeth, which can potentially result in cavities, dental abscesses, or even tooth loss. It’s caused by the activity of certain species of bacteria that can live in dental plaque. The bacteria in plaque can convert the sugars present in your food into acids. If plaque is allowed to build up over time, these acids can begin to damage your teeth.
This is why good oral hygiene is a vital part of preventing tooth decay.
Tooth decay occurs in several stages. Below, we’ll explore each of these stages, discuss how tooth decay is treated, and give you some tips on how to prevent it from happening
5. Gum Disease
Periodontal disease (“gum disease”) is an infection that causes your gums and bone to pull away from the roots of your teeth. Periodontal disease is the most common cause of adult tooth loss. But not only does it raise your chances of losing teeth; it also strains your immune system. Research shows that chronic gum disease statistically raises your chances of suffering from a heart attack, stroke, uncontrolled blood glucose levels, high blood pressure, and even difficulty conceiving. As such, treating your oral infection is just as important for your overall health as it is your smile.
6. White Fillings
A composite resin(White Fillings) is a tooth-coloured plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide). Composites are not only used to restore decayed areas, but are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth, replacing old amalgam mercury filling and reshaping disfigured teeth. Bonding (the placement of composite resin on the front teeth for aesthetic purposes) allows us to mould beautiful smiles like artists mould clay statutes.
