Periodontal Gum Therapy
Left untreated, the outcome of severe gum disease can be devastating and has been linked to tooth loss, heart attack and stroke, diabetes, and certain forms of cancers. Proactive and preventive dentistry is the key to warding off periodontitis. Staying consistent with oral hygiene exams is the best way our patients can help keep their smile healthy.
With metal or amalgam fillings, expansion and contraction often take place within the filling, causing cracks in the tooth structure. Our composite resin fillings completely bond to the tooth, eliminating any tiny gaps surrounding the filling. Instead of pushing against the tooth structure like amalgam fillings, metal-free fillings work as a team with your teeth!
Our goal is to always help you preserve your natural teeth by all means possible, but sometimes there are reasons a tooth simply can’t be saved. Tooth extraction isn’t as scary as it sounds. With today’s advanced dentistry, numbing gels or sedation make pulling a tooth an easy, more comfortable procedure. Often, the patient feels little or no discomfort during a tooth extraction.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth. Severe decay, trauma, or a tooth fracture can all cause an infection that spreads to the nerve, resulting in severe pain or tooth abscesses. Root canal therapy is an easy, quick procedure that is virtually pain-free. It involves removing the affected enamel and diseased tissue, then filling the disinfected space and capping it with a porcelain crown.
A crown is a dental restoration that may be used to protect a tooth when it's at risk for a break, to attach a dental bridge, or to restore a tooth after a root canal. We offer porcelain crowns and porcelain fused to high noble metal crowns to restore the grins of our guests, for the most aesthetically pleasing results and impressive stability.
TMJ Disorder Therapy
Do you suffer from tension in the jaw, muscle soreness, and frequent headaches? Many patients are affected by the symptoms of TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder can lead to severe pain of the jaw, muscles, teeth, and headache. Dr. Nathan Dinh, at Huntington Smile Care, can help treat your symptoms with non-invasive dental splints.
Dental implants replace the natural tooth root, placed through a simple same-day surgical procedure. These small titanium anchors, fixed directly into the space left by the missing tooth need time to heal. Once the healing process is finished, Dr. Nathan Dinh will crown your new implant with a natural looking crown.
