Common Procedures: Regular Exams and Cleanings

Most patients should go to the dentist's office at least twice a year, which translates to once every six months. Regular exams and cleanings are essential common-procedures when it comes to maintaining good oral health. During regular exams, the dentist will examine your teeth for any issues that you may not be able to feel or see. For example, the dentist will look at your teeth for signs of cavities and tooth decay. The dentist will also look at your teeth and gums for signs of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Finally, the dentist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

Common Procedures: Bonding & Crowns

Tooth chipping can happen to anyone, even those who take excellent care of their teeth. Fortunately, a chipped tooth can be repaired with restorative common-procedures like bonding and crowns. Bonding is when the dentist permanently attaches dental materials to the tooth with the use of a curing light and adhesives. There is adhesive bonding and direct composite bonding. Crowns, on the other hand, refer to tooth restorations that are intended protect the damaged tooth's functionality. Crowns are installed to protect the chipped or cracked tooth to restore the functionality of a decayed tooth. The crown protects the tooth from additional damage.

Common Procedures: Fluoride & Fillings

Regular brushing and flossing is not the only thing that will keep your child's teeth strong and healthy. You should have a dentist rinse your child's teeth with fluoride every six months to maintain the health of the teeth. Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride coats the teeth to prevent plaque from accumulating and hardening on the surface of the teeth. If your child ends up getting a small cavity, they can undergo one of the most common-procedures for dentistry and get a filling. A filling can be made from gold, composite, or porcelain. The best choice depends on the location of the cavity as well as the extent of decay.

Common Procedures: Mouthguards & Nightguards

Both mouthguards and nightguards are used to protect the teeth from damage. If your child plays a high-impact sport like football, they should wear a mouthguard as a form of protection. A dentist will be able to create a custom mouthguard for your child. On the other hand, nightguards are intended to protect the teeth from grinding at night. Your dentist will also be able to make a custom nightguard that fits your child's teeth and mouth perfectly.

Common Procedures: Veneers

Dental veneers refer to tooth-colored materials that are used to improve the appearance of the teeth. Veneers are incredibly thin and custom-made shells. The dentist installs the veneers over the real teeth to change the length, shape, size, or color of the teeth. Resin composite materials or porcelain can be used to make dental veneers. Porcelain veneers are able to better resist stains than resin composite veneers. Also, porcelain veneers better replicate a natural tooth's light reflecting properties. The installation of veneers is one of the most common-procedures.
