Stages of Tooth Decay (Dental Caries)
Abscessed tooth is a painful infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth. It’s most commonly caused by severe tooth decay.
Gingivitis (gum inflammation) can progresses to periodontitis (gum disease) which can progresses to tooh loss.
Sensitive TeethIs the taste of ice cream, a sip of hot coffee, sweet or very acidic foods and drinks, or breathing in cold air sometimes painful for you? Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally? If so, you may have sensitive teeth.
Our dentist can determine the problem and suggest appropriate treatments, such as desensitizing toothpaste, fluoride gel, a crown, inlay or bonding, depending on the problem.
Thumb-sucking and Pacifier UseIf your child has thumb-sucking or pacifier use habits beyond ages 2 and 4 or older, schedule a visit with our dentist for treatment measures.
