It is important to maintain oral hygiene to keep your teeth healthy in the long run. Regular dental exams help in keeping a check on your oral health and identifying potential issues. When you visit our clinic for a regular dental exam, our dentist will thoroughly check your gums and teeth for any signs of damage and provide you with immediate solutions, if required. Regular dental exams help you avoid any serious damage to your oral health as problems can be identified at the initial stages. It also helps to prevent any future dental issues.
A dental emergency is when you require prompt attention from a dental professional. Plaza Dental Clinic understands that you cannot always decide when you require our care. If you face a dental emergency, we advise you to contact us just as soon as you can. We will accommodate you with one of our dentists as soon as possible so you can receive prompt care. Our team offers urgent care for various types of dental emergencies, including:
Severe Toothaches or other types of Tooth Pain
Chipped or broken tooth
Soft tissue damage, including the tongue, lips, cheeks, and gums
Fractured or cracked tooth
Partially extruded (knocked-out) tooth
Lost dental restoration (a lost filling or crown)
Benefits of a Dental Sealant Treatment
It is completely normal to have pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, but they are difficult to clean. They fuel decay as food and bacteria get easily trapped in these crevices.
Plaza Dental Clinic offers dental sealant treatments to protect these hard-to-reach teeth and prevent cavities. While anyone can benefit from a dental sealant, it is especially recommended for our young patients.
A mouth guard is essential for people who suffer from bruxism/ clenching. A lot of people grind their teeth, unknowingly. This creates pressure on the jaw bone and can lead to severe issues such as TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorder). In addition grinding causes extensive tooth wear. Splints are worn over teeth to prevent tooth grinding.
Sports guards are also common among sports players. They safeguard your teeth from injury while playing sports.
A root canal treatment is often needed when the infection has spread to the tooth’s center, and there is no way of saving the tooth. The center of the tooth is the part where all the nerves and blood vessels are situated. It is referred to as the pulp. A root canal treatment involves creating a small hole in your tooth to get access to the nerves. The decayed part of the tooth is removed through this small hole. After the tooth’s root is removed, your dentist will clean the area to ensure the infection is gone. A course of antibiotics is often prescribed after the treatment to eliminate the risk of any lingering infection.
Children are a welcome addition to our family-oriented dental practice. We make sure that your child's experience with us imparts feelings of trust and security, leaving them comfortable and open to learning about their teeth.
What Is the Right Age to Take My Child to the Dentist?
You can bring your child for a dental exam at three years of age or earlier if you face any issues. The first appointment is offered as a fun introduction to dentistry. We check for decay, clean and polish their teeth, review brushing techniques, and sometimes even provide a fluoride treatment. A discussion with you on how different foods, drinks, and snacks can adversely affect your child's teeth is a very important aspect.
Your child will be scheduled every six months. As children are rapidly growing and changing, special attention is given to the growth and development of their facial bones, erupting permanent teeth, smile function and aesthetics. We also monitor the effects of oral habits, including pacifiers, baby bottles, and thumb sucking. Orthodontic evaluations occur if your child exhibits signs of undesired development.
It is never too late to enjoy healthy gums, and you are never too old for regular dental check-ups. Still, many adults neglect their oral health by not keeping up with their regular dentist appointments. At Plaza Dental Clinic, we offer personalized oral care services to senior patients for proper oral hygiene to help them lead an active and healthy lifestyle regardless of their age.
Today, individuals live longer than ever, so ensuring dental health is essential. Poor oral hygiene can affect your ability to maintain proper nutrition. It also impacts your overall well-being. Some health conditions even stem from poor oral health. We offer preventative dental services to keep cavities and gum disease at bay. If your dentures require special attention, we are here for you. You can trust us for regular dental check-ups and cleanings to maintain good dental health during your senior years.
Adults Dental Health Concerns
With growing age, seniors are at high risk of developing a few dental health concerns, including:
Darkened or stained teeth
Uneven jawbone caused by missing teeth
Dry mouth due to reduced saliva flow
Impaired sense of taste
Additionally, tooth decay and gum disease have been linked to other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and aspiration pneumonia. If you have gum disease or tooth decay, bacteria from your mouth can enter the bloodstream and can weaken your immune system causing these additional health concerns.
A dental extraction may be necessary when tooth damage is so extensive that it cannot be repaired with a crown, filling, or root canal. You can rely on our team to provide an accurate diagnosis, expert guidance, and answer to all your questions.
Most of all, we know the idea of having a tooth extracted can cause feelings of stress or anxiety. We are here for you to offer sedation options to ensure your comfort.
There is a lot of confusion and uncertainty regarding wisdom teeth:
When should my child's wisdom teeth be removed?
I'm an adult, but I still have my wisdom teeth. Is that a problem?
Do wisdom teeth need to be extracted?
Plaza Dental Clinic is here to answer all these questions and more. Thanks to expert diagnostic technology and sedation, we will keep you safe and comfortable throughout your visit if we determine you need a wisdom tooth extraction.
If you have questions about wisdom teeth or one of your family members needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, you've come to the right place.
Plaza Dental Clinic offers various specialized dental treatments. We care about your dental health, and for your convenience, we offer in-house wisdom teeth removal with and without sedation. Often our mouths cannot accommodate the irruption of wisdom teeth, which in turn, causes them to be impacted. If this happens, they will have to be removed. Our qualified team can provide you with the surgical procedures needed. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is always available to discuss your options.
If you have any questions or if you need to book an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
