What Keeps A Prosthetic Tooth Secure?

A prosthetic tooth provides several important functions. After tooth loss, you can be robbed of confidence in the way you look, and you can also have a more difficult time biting and chewing. As time passes, this issue can lead to more losses, as teeth that lose a neighbor have less stability. Fortunately, the problems associated with this issue can be effectively treated when you receive the right prosthetic support. At our Santa Monica, CA dental office, we can talk to you about having a replacement tooth set in place with a dental implant. The resulting changes can give you more bite support, more confidence in your smile, and protection against different oral health concerns. (more…)

Addressing The Effects Of Gum Disease

When you think about the oral health problems that you need to watch out for, you may focus on the potential threat of dental decay. Through daily oral hygiene efforts and regular dental visits, you can protect yourself against the formation of cavities. You can also protect yourself against gum disease, another serious condition. Protecting yourself against this threat can be more important than you realize. Problems with your periodontal health are the leading cause for adult tooth loss, and the bacteria that attack these tissues can create more problems for your well-being when they move to other parts of your body. To help those patients who are struggling with more involved periodontal problems, our Santa Monica, CA dentist’s office can offer care from an on-site specialist who can help you protect your gums and preserve your full smile!
