Dental sealants can protect teeth from cavities and decay by covering the chewing surfaces of teeth with a tooth-colored layer. This layer keeps sugars and acids away, and prevents foods and beverages from deteriorating your dental health. Sealants are often used in pediatric dentistry to protect a child’s mouth from developing cavities. If you’re interested in protecting your teeth, give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
Wisdom teeth typically erupt in a patient’s late teens or early twenties. Since they come in long after your permanent teeth are already there, they can cause dental issues such as overcrowding or even infections. As a general rule, you should see a dentist when your wisdom teeth begin to erupt in order to have them assessed and determine whether they need to be removed.
If your wisdom teeth are painful, itchy, or causing swelling in your mouth, these are signs that you may need to have them removed to maintain optimal dental health. Give us a call today to set up a consultation with Dr. Packard.
Periodontal disease is a very common dental health issue that affects nearly half of adults in America, and it is simply caused by a lack of proper oral hygiene. This disease affects your gums, and if it isn’t treated in its early stages, the symptoms worsen and the disease becomes irreversible. Signs that you may be suffering from periodontal disease include tenderness and swelling of gums, bleeding while brushing teeth, dark or reddish gums, bad breath that won’t go away, and receding gum lines. If you notice these symptoms, call Precision Dental right away to get judgement-free, quality care.
