General dentists are the main providers of dental care because an average of 65% of dental visits are for prevention and diagnosis. These dentists provide thorough examinations including; teeth, gums and oral or facial structures. They promote routine check ups, xrays and teeth cleaning, usually conducted by their Dental Hygienist.
When you develop a cavity, or a hole in a tooth, you will want to have the cavity removed and replaced with a filling as soon as possible. Composite fillings are very poplular, they match the color of your teeth and do not include any metal materials.
If a tooth, or several, are badly decayed or have suffered trauma and injury, there may be no choice but to undergo extraction. We always try and save your permanent teeth, if possible, and only remove them when there are no other options. However, we do make you sure you are comfortable and have information on how to replace them; bridges, implants, or dentures.
They usually show up in your late teens or early twenties. They are usually removed for several reasons, they become impacted and painful, the angle of growth pushes against other teeth which can make permanent teeth crooked, you have a small mouth and there is no room for extra molars, you can develop gum disease or cavities becuase you are unable to reach them when brushing or with dental floss.
