Regular professional cleanings are an important part of maintaining good oral and dental health. Most people benefit from professional cleanings every 6 months.
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. At Five Points Dental, we also offer deep cleanings and gum treatments which may be recommended during your routine exam.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.
Restorative dentistry is the diagnosis of all issues relating to the health and function of the smile, including the treatment and repair of broken, infected, or otherwise damaged teeth, gums, and tissue. These treatments may include fillings, inlays/onlays, crowns, implants, endodontics (root canal), or night guards.
Cosmetic Dentistry is all about the confidence you have in your smile. If you have chipped, crooked, yellow, spaced or missing teeth that you feel are taking away from your full smile potential, we can work with you to create the best possible treatment plan to reach your goal. Possible solutions may include bonding, veneers, whitening, or Invisalign.
Inlays and onlays are considered a halfway point between a filling and a crown. They are stronger than fillings and are crafted by a dental laboratory, but they don’t cover the whole tooth like a crown does and are therefore more conservative. We may recommend this treatment option for teeth that have extensive decay or otherwise weakened structure that a filling will not be strong enough to restore.
Today’s alternative to unsightly, controversial mercury-silver fillings; white composite resin looks just like natural tooth. These are used to fill cavities left by decay or minor damage and are exclusively used at five points dental for the most inconspicuous results.
Zoom! Advanced Power Plus is a state-of the-art tooth whitening procedure. It’s fast, safe and effective. In about an hour your teeth will be dramatically whiter.
If you want immediate results Zoom is a great option for you.
If you are more comfortable with gradual whitening, a custom take-home whitening system can be created for you.
A crown, sometimes called a cap, fits over the whole tooth. This may be needed if there is severe structural damage to the tooth, or if the tooth has had root canal therapy. Your porcelain or gold crown will be custom made by a dental laboratory for the best fit and appearance.
If you have always wanted to correct the spacing, crowding or position of your teeth or simply stopped wearing your retainers too soon and your teeth have shifted, Invisalign is a great option. Instead of wearing metal and wire braces, Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth. Throughout the treatment you’ll change the aligners approximately every two weeks. This moves your teeth into the straighter position step by step. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. A crown is then placed on the implant and will replace the missing tooth.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
If the root, or living tissue, inside the tooth becomes infected or dies; it can cause severe pain and/or discoloration of the tooth. It becomes necessary to clean out the infected tissue and seal the canal to prevent further infection or damage. The tooth usually needs a crown after endodontic treatment.
Mouth guards are used in sports where deliberate or accidental impacts to the face and jaw may cause harm. Such impacts may occur in many sports including: hockey, baseball, boxing, mixed martial arts, wrestling, football, basketball, skateboarding, rollerblading, squash and racquetball. Mouth guards may also prevent or reduce harm levels of concussion in the event of an injury to the jaw.
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ is a completely new category of performance gear designed for all athletes looking to get better in their chosen sport.
How does UA Performance Mouthwear™ differ from mouthguards? Mouthguards provide protection. UA Performance Mouthwear, which includes mouthpieces and mouthguards powered by ArmourBite™ Technology, does more: It enhances performance. It is not only backed by some of the biggest names in pro sports, it’s also recommended by dentists, pro trainers, strength coaches and wellness experts.
How does it work? Clenching the jaw triggers the production and release of a cascade of hormones, including cortisol, the stress hormone. UA Performance Mouthwear powered by ArmourBite™ Technology prevents teeth clenching and relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). By preventing the excessive production of hormones, the body is able to unlock its full potential.
Sports Dentistry involves treatment of athletic injuries related to the mouth and face, as well as custom guards to prevent such injuries. In contact sports, such as football, boxing, martial arts and hockey; injury prevention through properly fitted mouth guards is considered essential.
Night guards are used to prevent patients from grinding and clenching their teeth while sleeping which results in tooth wear and TMJ or jaw pain. There are several different types of night guards, each utilized to treat an array of problems. We will work with you to decide which type is appropriate to treat your individual needs. For example, the NTI-tss type of nightguard is a way to simply and effectively treat patients suffering from tension and migraine headaches by reducing the intensity of jaw clenching while the patient sleeps (http://www.nti-tss.com/).
