Tooth enamel eroded away by plaque and attendant bacteria leaves a tooth defenseless and begins a process that leads toward cavities. Cavities are issues for adults and kids, but regular dental health checkups can prevent ongoing tooth decay.
Different foods affect your teeth in different ways. Nutritional choices high with high acid levels can be especially tough on our teeth. Teeth don’t grow back, so it’s important to take care of yours right now and going forward to prevent tooth loss.
Gum disease can be a serious oral health issue that should be detected early through regular dental health checkups. It may affect periodontal structures and the gums, including bleeding gums.
Saliva is an important agent when it comes to digesting food and is critical to your mouth’s bacterial balance. Known as xerostomia, dry mouth can result from several causes: disease, no preventative care, nerve damage, and medication side effects.
Called into play when there’s an infection in a tooth, the root canal is sometimes feared, though it may be the best and/or last line of defense to save a tooth. Our Lewiston dentists are highly skilled in this procedure.
Not just an opportunistic bout of bad breath, halitosis sticks around and may be a sign of more serious dental health issues. It can be caused by dental issues like cavities, gum disease, or even bacteria produced during a sinus infection.
Halitosis doesn’t happen because you forget to brush your teeth one morning. It’s a serious oral health condition that can be caused by issues like cavities, gum disease, or even a sinus infection.
Much of the pain associated with teeth, the jaw and the mouth are caused by nerve irritation stemming from tooth decay, sudden injury, or long-term infection, even losing a tooth. The cause of the pain may be obvious, or need a more investigative diagnosis.
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects nearly 54-million people in the United States alone, usually diagnosed due to long and paused breaths while sleeping. These occur when the body’s oxygen levels decrease. There are multiple ways to treat this, from machines to mouthguards.

FYI, tooth enamel is one of the strongest things produced by your body. Sugar and a lack of dental hygiene can put a dent on it, though, as can physical damage taken during a fall, or collision. It could also happen just from accidentally biting down on something hard when not expecting to do so.
Both healthy and compromised teeth with some amount of decay can take a hit at random moments during life. We’ll be here to get your teeth back in order, literally. No one wants a tooth to get cracked, chipped, or broken, but when it happens know that we can set things right.
When it comes to that, there are multiple options to help with pain, restore oral health, and revive that nice smile friends and family love.
When a tooth is fractured and loses a section or a chip, a possible solution is a customized dental crown fitted and cemented on the top of the tooth--a long-lasting solution
Cosmetic bonding is a very effective process for dealing with minor chipped teeth, while dental crowns may be necessary when a larger chip is involved. Composite resins leave the tooth with a natural appearance.
For small cracks in a tooth, we often utilize dental veneers, which are then filled and sealed with a specially formulated composite resin. Larger cracks might necessitate a root canal or dental implants.
