Investing In Good Dental Health

The mouth acts as a mirror to the body, and rightfully so. Many infectious diseases of the gut or the respiratory tract starting from the mouth. Moreover, many systemic diseases do show their effects on the oral cavity. Your oral health forms an integral part of your overall health, and it should not be ignored under any circumstances.

General dental services at Tecumseh Family Dental aim towards helping you maintain impeccable oral and overall health. Our family dental service includes dental cleaning & examination, teeth extractions, composite fillings, and root canal

General Dentistry Treatments: 

General Dental Examination

Dentists and dental professionals around the world recommend a complete dental check-up once every six months. This allows us, as dentists, to examine your teeth, gums, and oral soft tissues. Regular dental check-ups are crucial to preventing dental diseases and aid with early intervention if any sign of illness is seen.

Dental Cleaning

Our mouth is a host to millions of bacteria, and while most of them are harmless, some can be disease-causing under the right circumstance. Poor oral hygiene leads to the accumulation of bacteria-laden plaque, which is responsible for dental decay and gum diseases. Timely and proper removal of plaque is essential in preventing dental diseases.

Composite Fillings

Dental cavities are a bacterial disease of the teeth that damages the tooth structure and leads to the formation of a hole. It is imperative to treat dental cavities as soon as possible to prevent bacteria from progressing. Dental composite resins are tooth-coloured filling materials used to restore a tooth’s shape, size, and function after removing dental decay. Composite fillings are available in various tooth colour shades, and our dentist will choose one to match your natural tooth shade to ensure superior aesthetics.

Teeth Extractions

Every dentist will try their best to save a tooth; however, the damage is too extensive at times, and the only option is to remove the tooth. Tooth extraction is a relatively common procedure and is carried out under local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free and comfortable experience. Severely decayed, fractured, and loose teeth often have to be extracted and are later replaced with the help of dental implants or dental bridges. In some cases, a tooth may not erupt entirely or may not come out at all and becomes impacted. In such cases, the tooth has to be removed surgically. Third molars, commonly called wisdom teeth, are the most commonly impacted teeth.

Root Canal

If dental cavities are left untreated in their earlier stages, the bacteria will travel further and infect the tooth’s core, the dental pulp. Dental pulp houses blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue and is responsible for a tooth’s vitality. Once the core is affected, it leads to immense pain, and root canal therapy becomes necessary. Root canal therapy takes the help of specialized root canal instruments to clean the debris and infected tissue out of the root. Later, the root canal is sealed with the help of root canal filling material, and the top part is packed with the help of a composite resin or a dental crown.
