Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is a big part of keeping your body healthy as well.
Brush at least twice a day and floss once; it’s also essential that you see your dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings. Visiting the dentist twice a year means problems with your oral health can be detected early when treatment is less invasive—and less expensive.
Don’t let busy schedules get in the way of your family’s oral health. Visit Erie, PA dentist Dr. Kevin Sambuchino at Lake Erie Dental twice a year to ensure healthy teeth and gums.
Prevention is vital for good oral health. Staying current with twice yearly dental visits ensures that Dr. Sambuchino sees problems that might be developing at the earliest possible time. Conditions such as gum disease often take hold with no symptoms whatsoever, and a dental examination will reveal these types of issues before you experience pain.
We also recommend that our patients have x-rays at least once each year. Some things are just not visible to the naked eye. An x-ray can spot even the tiniest spot of decay, which you can have filled before it becomes more significant. We proudly use digital radiographs, which expose you to less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
If you don’t love your smile, you might want to consider cosmetic dentistry.
Just because we weren’t blessed with a beautiful smile at birth doesn’t mean we can’t have one now! Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings, and dental crowns can take your smile from dull to dazzling.
Dr. Sambuchino also offers invisible braces with plastic aligners that are made in-house. Without the Invisalign brand name, you can save on the costs of treatment—and you can get started sooner. Lake Erie Dental is one of the few dental practices in the entire state to offer this technology.
For those patients who need traditional orthodontic treatment, the result is beautiful smiles as well as improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for people of all ages. Orthodontic issues will be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary.
If you are missing one or more teeth, this is a problem. It not only impacts your self-confidence and ability to chew healthy foods, but it also puts your remaining healthy teeth at risk.
When a tooth is missing, and the space is not filled, your teeth will start to shift. This can cause your bite to become misaligned, and it often leads to even more tooth loss. Stop this vicious cycle by filling the gap left by a missing tooth with a dental implant.
