What Dental Cleanings Do For Your Cavity Risk

Are you currently at risk for tooth decay? The answer depends on different factors like your diet choices, the natural strength of your enamel, and your oral hygiene efforts. One issue that can have more impact than you realize is whether or not you are consistent with smile care provided during regular dental exams. These cleanings remove tartar buildup, a substance that can make you vulnerable to different threats. Without the help of your hygienist, any tartar deposits on your teeth would remain in place. In addition to providing the removal of these deposits, our Greenville, TX dentist’s office can offer guidance on better smile care at home, and we can look out for any active problems with your well-being that should be treated.

Choosing An Effective Teeth Whitening Strategy

Until you do something about the problem, dental discoloration can take away that feeling of confidence you once had in your smile.

Our Greenville, TX dentist’s office is prepared to help you find a truly effective solution. For many, the problem is with teeth stains, and the solution can come from a single-appointment teeth whitening treatment. Thanks to the Opalescence® system, we can speed up the effects of your bleaching agents without the need to apply heat or light. This means you still see fast results, but you have less to worry about from post-care sensitivity. (more…)

When Dental Trouble Requires A Root Canal

At our Greenville, TX dentist’s office, we take care to treat problems with poor oral health promptly. At a regular dental evaluation, you can receive a warning about tooth decay before the problem starts to cause you any pain or sensitivity, which means we can save more of your enamel from harm. However, when you go without these exams, you can experience the problems associated with more significant decay. When this happens, you may find that you need a root canal. This procedure becomes necessary when decay leads to the infiltration of bacteria into your pulp, the inner chamber of your tooth where living tissues are housed. Beyond just removing bacteria and infected tissues in this space, we can restore your tooth with a crown after treatment to keep it safe from further harm. (more…)
