No matter what type of care you need ― even if you are simply looking for a new dental home for regular cleanings and general care ― find what you are looking for at Taylor Dental. The entire team at Taylor Dental seeks to give you personal, customized care.
Believe it or not, a vast majority of adults and teenagers have some form of periodontal (gum) disease, yet most don't even know it. Gum disease is also called the "silent disease" because in most cases the disease must be quite advanced before any symptoms appear. At every visit to Taylor Dental, you will receive a close examination of your gum tissue. If any issues are present, we will create a customized treatment plan to help you get back to optimal periodontal health and to maintain that health for the future. Your treatment may include the gentle removal of bacteria and debris from just beneath the gum line or a more advanced procedure that is performed over several visits. Whatever you need, your Taylor Dental team will help ensure your healthy teeth and gums for years to come.
Sometimes a patient develops an issue with the deep supportive structure of a tooth ― the portion of the tooth that contains the nerve, as well as the "pulp." In order to save the tooth, a root canal may be prescribed. A root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp from within the tooth. Then, the tooth is filled with an inert material to maintain its structural integrity. Finally, a lifelike porcelain crown is fitted over your natural tooth structure to recomplete your smile. Due to advances in dentistry, root canals are more comfortable than ever before.
It is always best to preserve your natural tooth structure whenever possible. But, sometimes the best decision to get you back to your optimal dental health is tooth extraction. Rest assured, your dental team will not only give you gentle treatment, but also they will give you an array of options for completing your smile and for restoring your normal function.
Do you clench and grind your teeth in your sleep? Do you suffer from headaches and neck and jaw pain on a daily basis? A custom nightguard can help put your jaw in a relaxed position, providing you with relief during the night. Ask your dentist at Taylor Dental to assess your bite and jaw function to see if you are a good nightguard candidate.
