PREVENTATIVE CARE

Protect Your Gums. Protect Your Smile.

In America alone, over half of adults suffer from the nagging symptoms of gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease or gingivitis, is a chronic dental condition that occurs in patients of all ages and backgrounds. If left untreated, what starts as noticing gums that bleed when brushing or discovering a pink color in the sink when you rinse can lead to more serious dental health problems later on. Rather than wait for itchy gums, sensitive teeth or tooth loss to occur, be sure to schedule regular checkups at the dentist.

Oral Health Is Systemic Health.

Gum disease is increasingly being linked to poor health in the rest of the body, including diabetes, risks of heart attack or stroke and low birth weight. When you care for your teeth properly, you positively influence the health of the rest of your body. Although regular teeth cleanings and healthy habits at home can significantly reduce risks for gum disease and tooth decay, some patients are more prone to gum disease than others.

To treat gum disease in its more advanced form of periodontitis, a service known as scaling and root planing can be used to remove bacteria trapped below the gum line and prevent damage to the teeth and gums. Another form of endodontic dentistry used to treat tooth decay affecting the innermost nerve of the tooth is known as root canal therapy, or a root canal, and can feel no more intrusive than a simple dental filling.

Adult Dentistry

When we’re not caring for your child’s first tooth or your teen’s consultation for Invisalign, we may be helping an older family member considering tooth replacement with a partial or full denture, or implant-supported denture. At Lake Minnetonka Dental, we believe no one should have to struggle with tooth loss, especially in a smile they don’t feel confident in. With the choice of a beautiful partial or full denture, patients can recover their healthy abilities to eat or speak comfortably and enjoy life again in a beautiful smile.

Has Your Child Seen The Dentist?

Your Child’s First Visit To the Dentist

Did you know that your child’s first visit to the dentist should take place within six months of their first tooth erupting? It may seem early, but the younger years are actually some of the most formative of your child’s oral health. Children are also the most exposed to sticky-sweet candy, juices and treats and snack more often throughout the day. Instead of waiting for a cavity or other dental problem, set your child up for success early-on when you come see the dentist and learn what you can do to help your child enjoy taking care of healthy teeth. When you bring your child in to see the dentist, they are able to get to know their dentist, look forward to future dental visits, and enjoy fun kid’s prizes at their family and pediatric dentist in Wayzata.
