You already know the importance of maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash regularly can help to prevent a myriad of problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay. But even the most diligent brushers can be affected by oral health issues.
What Services do We Provide?
Visiting the dentist at least twice a year is an extra preventative measure. The dentist will give you a thorough cleaning, getting all areas you may have missed during your normal brushing routine. He will also check the condition of your teeth for any signs of decay, weakness and cracks or breaks. The rest of your mouth is also examined to check for signs of other health issues. Finding signs early prevents major problems later.
We also perform X-rays from time to time to check the condition of your jaw and assess areas that can't be seen by the naked eye. We also perform children's dentistry, as the developing teeth have unique needs.
When you suffer from a cracked or broken tooth, tooth decay or you have an infection, the strength of the affected tooth is compromised. For this reason, we offer several restorative services.
For cracked or broken teeth, we can provide you with crowns to maintain the tooth's integrity. Fillings are used to fix cavities from tooth decay. If you are suffering from an infection, a root canal followed by a crown will protect the tooth from potential loss. And in the event of missing teeth, we can provide you with bridges, dentures or dental implants.
When your smile is not quite what you'd like it to be, your self-confidence may suffer. The dentists at Anchorage Dental Associates can fix your dental cosmetic issues and restore your smile to its former beauty. We provide a variety of solutions.
For cracked or broken molars, a ceramic crown can be placed not only to strengthen the tooth but to keep your smile even. Ceramic matches the color of your natural teeth, so no one will ever be able to tell it's there. Should you suffer a crack on one of your front teeth, we use a veneer to both hide it and protect your tooth from further damage. These porcelain coverings can also be used to cover gaps. Other fixes for cracks and gaps, as well as misshapen or shortened teeth is bonding.
Another big issue that many people have is discolored teeth. Stains can come from a variety of sources, and sometimes whitening toothpaste just isn't enough. We can help you get rid of stubborn stains by providing you with custom fit trays and a whitening solution, allowing you to get the dazzling white smile you desire.
Your oral health needs are as unique as you. No matter if you need a cleaning and exam, a tooth restoration or you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, Anchorage Dental Associates can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Schedule your appointment today!
