Who Needs to Consider Crown Lengthening?
Posted on 4/13/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
Crown lengthening is a common dental procedure that is usually done in office and does not require a very invasive procedure in order to be performed. This is when the gum line of the tooth is pulled back to expose more of the tooth that is below the gum line. This is used to help place a crown or filling in the desired area. Those That Require a Crown Lengthening Anyone may require this procedure, since it all depends on your unique oral makeup and where the tooth that is being repaired lies in the mouth. Sometimes it has broken too far down under the gum line, requiring the dentist to have to do the procedure to reach it. Other times there is an oral problem that should be addressed that is causing this problem to happen. Gum disease is one of the problems that can cause the teeth to go into the gums and cause further problems that the dentist would be required to perform this procedure for. It is always important to have your teeth completely cleaned before having this procedure done. This is to protect your overall health and to ensure that any build up, decay or plaque that is sitting in the area around the gum and tooth are completely cleared out. This can also help with the decay that can cause further health issues in the mouth, such as deep cavities or gum or root infections. Speak with our office if you're in need of crown lengthening. We have experienced hands and professionals on deck that can provide you with the essential oral care that you need. We can help put your mind at ease when we provide the care required for all of the dental work you're in need of. Speak with us today to learn even more....

What Happens if Gum Disease Goes Untreated for Too Long
Posted on 3/23/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
It's very easy to get gingivitis and other forms of gum disease when you don't practice good oral hygiene, the most important thing is that, if you have it you need to treat it immediately before it gets worse. If you knew what could happen if you don't to treat gingivitis, chances are you will make a greater effort to visit us more often for checkups. Now we're going to talk about what Gingivitis is and what it can turn into if it's not treated within its first stage. What is Gingivitis and What It Can Turn Into if Left Untreated Gingivitis is a gum disease that forms when bacteria combines with starches in your mouth. They create a very sticky like film that covers your teeth and is known as plaque. Plaque is really easy to remove with the right way to brush and floss. Also, rinsing with the right kind of mouthwash will remove the leftover food and bacteria in your mouth as well. However, if the plaque is not removed over time it will begin to harden and turn into what is known as tartar, which will be removed with deeper cleaning by us Which is known as root planing. When plaque goes below the gum line, it will hurt your gums, causing them to turn red and swell. When Gingivitis is left untreated it will turn into Periodontitis. When tartar goes below the gum line and the bacteria will cause infection, your gums will swell even more and begin recede from your teeth, this will cause pockets of infection to grow. When Periodontitis Sets in, Your Teeth Will Decay It's not a very good idea to let bacteria gain control of your mouth. Once it has the upper hand, tartar and plaque will start to eat away the hard-protective enamel that border your teeth. When this happens, infection will set up camp in your teeth and cause them to decay, and even worse that infection can spread to your jaw, causing problems that will need to be corrected with a surgical procedure. So, if you start to show signs and symptoms of this horrible disease, please don't want to call us!...
