Dentist Riverside | Cosmetic Dentist Riverside
Taking good care of teeth and gums does not receive enough time in the busy life of a today’s family. This can lead to potentially devastating diseases and problems that could affect all members of the family, from kids to adults, and leave them with imperfect and troublesome teeth through their lives. That increases the importance of the treatments offered by our Riverside dentist to prevent these diseases and treat any problems at their early stages. Some of these treatments include:
General DentistryOur Riverside general dentist examines every patient, evaluates the condition of their teeth and gums, advises them of the different options available to treat problems and diseases if they exist, and performs numerous treatments for all patients. Root canal treatment, dental extraction, dental fillings, inlays and onlays and dental bonding are some of these treatments performed to maintain the general health and look of the teeth. Our dentist also performs some cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as teeth whitening, to further enhance the look of the teeth.
Pediatric DentistryIt is the mission of our pediatric dentist in Riverside to make children comfortable at the office and willing to participate in their own oral health care. Once that is successfully accomplished, it is time to make sure kids are free of dental diseases and problems and know how to take good care of their teeth. Most kids are prone to tooth decays and cavities due to the sugary nature of the foods and drinks they like to consume, and our dentist addresses this issue and performs necessary treatments to prevent it. Dental alignment problems are another issue that needs to be corrected in many kids and teenagers.
Orthodontic TreatmentsTeeth do not always come out in the positions they should. Alignment problems have direct impact on the smile and self-confidence, both in teenagers and adults. By taking advantage of traditional methods and incorporating the new advances in technology, our Riverside orthodontist is able to correct these problems in an efficient and timely manner. Traditional metal braces are often used to correct alignment problems in kids and teenagers, though they are much more comfortable and less noticeable than before, and Invisalign aligners are the great solution for most adults.
Periodontic TreatmentsGum disease is common among most of the adults in US. It occurs due to accumulation of plaque and tartar on the teeth, which sets the ground for bacteria in the mouth to grow. Periodontal disease can damage the gum tissue, bone structure supporting the teeth, and if it is not treated in time, causes tooth loss. Since the infection in the gums can travel to all organs through blood, it can cause other major problems in the body as well. Our periodontist in Riverside can treat gum disease in any of its stages to prevent tooth loss and damage to teeth and gums.
Restorative DentistryTeeth can be damaged or lost due to periodontal disease, accidents, extensive tooth decay and many other problems. Once a tooth is damaged, the first step is to try to save it. Sometimes a root canal therapy followed by installation of a dental crown can restore a tooth. Other times the tooth might be damaged so extensively that restoration is impossible. In these cases our Riverside restorative dentist can replace the tooth with a dental implant, a dental bridge, or full or partial dentures, depending on the number of the teeth lost, to restore the shape of the teeth and make them functional again.
Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry consists of all the treatments that can correct, or hide the imperfections with the teeth and make them more beautiful. These treatments range from a simple teeth whitening to more complicated procedures such as porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers or dental bonding. Our cosmetic dentist in Riverside uses these treatments several times during the day to rejuvenate the smiles of the patients and make them perfect. With a bright, beautiful smile comes a boosted self-confidence that can influence all aspect of a patient’s life.
Emergency DentistryYou may wake up in the middle of the night with a severe toothache, usually caused by tooth decay. You may get your tooth or filling knocked out while playing sports or crack and damage it while chewing on something hard. When a tooth is damaged or knocked out, the chances of saving it increases the sooner it receives treatment. In a dental emergency always contact our Riverside emergency dentist and follow his instructions on how to handle the tooth or filling until you get to the office and receive treatment.
Everyone needs to see our dentist in Riverside on a regular basis to checkup on the condition of their teeth and gums, prevent diseases and problems, treat diseases if they are present and correct the damages caused by them to prevent further problems. With different kinds of dental treatments offered at our Riverside dental office, you and your family have the chance to keep your teeth and gums healthy and enjoy a beautiful smile all the time.
