Most of the conditions that negatively affect your smile can be avoided with regular care. Horseshoe Dental’s team is committed to answering your questions about proper hygiene and to providing you with the most advanced preventive dentistry available.
1 year old exams
Do you know when your child’s dental care should begin? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the appearance of the first baby tooth is a good sign. For most babies, this occurs when they are between 6 months and 1 year of age. A simpler way to remember for your child is: first dental visit by first birthday. It’s important to remember that baby teeth serve as place-holders for adult teeth. If baby teeth are damaged, permanent teeth can grow in out of position, resulting in crowding and/or crooked.
Sometimes injury or decay extensively damages a tooth. And, in certain cases, extraction is the proper treatment option to start you on the path toward complete dental health. Horseshoe Dental will gently extract your troublesome tooth, giving you the treatment options for replacing that tooth and for completing your beautiful smile once again.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a longer-lasting, brighter, whiter smile.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects tens of thousands of Americans every year, and one case in four is fatal. As with most cancers, the key to beating the disease is catching it before it progresses to a later stage. With early detection from a routine oral cancer screening, there is a 90% success rate after diagnosis. A trusted dental practice like Horseshoe Dental is truly your only line of defense against oral cancer. He and his team of dental professionals are the only ones to regularly evaluate your oral health and to notice any potential abnormalities. Gain the peace of mind that comes with a regular oral cancer screening from Horseshoe Dental. With the help of the latest dental technology, even a diagnosis of oral cancer can be successfully treated through early detection.
A nightguard is a simple solution that protects your teeth and jaw from the harmful results of nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. Horseshoe Dental provides a custom-molded, plastic mouthguard to comfortably fit over your upper or lower teeth, creating a barrier between your teeth. The cushion of the nightguard between the teeth absorbs the force of teeth grinding. A nightguard reduces teeth clenching and grinding, as well as TMJ problems by helping the jaw muscles to relax. Finally, you may rest comfortably again!
If your child plays sports or other similar activities, mouth guards are a great way to protect their teeth from potential injury. They are easy to clean, come in many color combinations and are custom made to fit comfortably in your child’s mouth.
Snoring often accompanies fitful sleep, and severe snoring may also be a sign of a more serious problem like sleep apnea.
