Hygiene Visits Do More Than Clean Your TeethDental Root Canal Treatment Las Cruces NM

Having your teeth cleaned by our professional hygienists will remove any lingering bacteria and plaque that lead to decay and gum disease. Often, areas in the back teeth are missed with everyday brushing, allowing harmful problems to set in. Decay and tooth loss are only two of the problems that can result from build-up of bacteria, plaque, and tartar. Medical research has shown a link between untreated gum disease and the development or worsening of diabetes, heart conditions, and stroke. A quick visit to our office for the cleanest your teeth can be will help you stay healthy.

Saving Hopeless Teeth

It is recognized that saving a tooth rather than extracting it is best to prevent other eventual problems with other teeth. With today's latest advancements in root canal therapy, the procedure is a very manageable treatment for patients.

Our doctors are very experienced in this procedure. It centers on removal of the interior pulp chamber of a tooth and replacement with a special filling material. A crown may be placed over the tooth to keep it strong. Little to no pain may be experienced with the use of modern anesthetics and techniques.

In-House Tooth Extractions

There are times when a tooth must be taken out, such as with impacted third molars, commonly referred to as "wisdom teeth." You will not need to be referred to another practice, as our capable doctors perform almost all extractions in-house. You will be pleased to remain in our caring and competent hands rather than referred to another office.

Bad Breath Can Mean More Serious Health Problems

Often chronic bad breath indicates gum infection is present. At our practice, we have added a fresh breath center and use a Halimeter™ to diagnose and help treat the problem. With these advancements, we can identify the source of bad breath and provide care that resolves the issue.

Prevent Tooth Loss During Sports ParticipationCustom Athletic Mouthguards Las Cruces NM

Trauma and injury are also reasons for missing teeth. Approximately 5 million teeth are lost each year in the United States because a protective mouthguard was not worn, or an inadequate mouthguard was used. The American Dental Association emphasizes the use of a custom-made mouthguard during athletic participation. They fit properly and give the necessary protection that over-the-counter mouthguards do not provide. They allow easy breathing for your best performance. The ADA advises using a custom mouthguard for these sports:

Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, wrestling.
