A dental abscess is caused by a tooth-related infection. They are usually endodontic in origin, from the inside of the tooth, but can be periodontally related, or both! Dental abscesses are often self draining, but can be very dangerous, and even life threatening if they keep traveling through the tissue and cause immense swelling.
There are many ways in which teeth can prematurely wear. Some of which are; attrition, erosion, and abfraction. Stress and other factors can lead to nighttime grinding. See our Bruxism section for more information on clenching and grinding.
A tooth with a fracture line, or that is completely fractured through can be a tricky fix. Learn more about what to do with a Cracked Tooth, in our Emergency Dentistry section.
Usually teeth can be easily whitened with over the counter, or professional whitening options. However, sometimes teeth cannot be whitened to developmental or genetic conditions. See our Cosmetic Dentistry section for more esthetic options!
Having missing teeth can reduce your ability to chew, and to be confident in your smile. Teeth will also shift over time, when there are open spaces. We have a number of tooth replacement options available including: Dental Implants, Fixed Bridges, Dentures and Partial Dentures.
Gingivitis and Gum Disease:
Red and bleeding gums are uncomfortable, and what’s worse is that there may be more going on underneath! See our Periodontal Therapy section for more information about periodontal disease and Scaling & Root Planing.
