Are you looking for a new dentist in Braselton, GA?
At Traditions we provide a full range of dentistry services in and around Braselton, GA. We know a healthy mouth can be a great asset and having a great general dentist is important for maintaining your smile as well as your overall health. Unseen tooth decay or gum disease can lead to infections and other conditions that can put your entire body at risk for health issues.
We are committed to preventing problems before they happen which is why we recommend all of our patients come in at least every six months for a routine cleaning and examination. Dental problems usually start out small but can quickly worsen if not dealt with as soon as possible. These problems are much easier to treat—or better yet avoid—if they are caught early.
If you are taking good care of your teeth, you might still come across some tooth pain. This is okay. Don't be ashamed to come to the office and let us check on it. Your genetics could play a factor in tooth health as well as other things that are out of your control. If you are doing what you can to keep your mouth in good health, you are already lessening the chance of toothaches and pains.
Serious dental problems begin as treatable problems
One example of this is gingivitis. The effects of gingivitis are reversible. But, when gingivitis advances into periodontal disease, the bone loss that can result is not reversible.
Similarly, a small cavity on the surface of a tooth can easily be fixed, but if left untreated, it can spread to the inner layers of the tooth and at that point, root canal therapy and a crown may be required. This can also be the case with a cracked filling. It can usually be fixed quite easily. If untreated, it may lead to an infection in the tooth’s inner pulp layer that also must be treated through root canal therapy.
A bad bite can also contribute to problems with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and can cause the painful cycle of muscle spasms and other jaw-joint problems commonly known as TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. There are ways to treat TMD, and the sooner treatment begins the sooner the painful symptoms can be relieved.
These are just a few of the many problems that can be avoided or treated more easily when regularly coming in for check-ups.
Regular checkups: the key to your oral health
During your regular check-ups we examine the health of your mouth, measure the bone levels around your teeth, check for decay, screen for oral cancer, examine your dental work, evaluate your bite, and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. The bacteria that cause periodontal disease thrive in plaque and tartar, producing toxins that can cause bone loss and eventually tooth loss. A toothbrush and floss are almost useless against tartar, so to keep it from building up we must remove it every six months in our office.
Your six-month exam and cleaning is a critical part of a preventive strategy. It is the best way for you to prevent advanced dental problems, and minimize the time and money you spend in the dental chair.
Here at Traditions Dental, we work with the latest technology to allow our patients to have a wide variety of innovative solutions to any dental issue. We offer a wide range of dental services that includes:
