In general, family dentistry addresses dental health at every stage of life. Family dentistry is concerned with oral hygiene and the health of your teeth including:
Gum Disease TreatmentThe symptoms of gingivitis are somewhat non-specific and manifest in the gum tissue as the classic signs of inflammation: swollen gums, bright red or purple gums, gums that are tender or painful to the touch, or bleeding gums or bleeding after brushing. Additionally, the stippling that normally exists on the gum tissue of some individuals will often disappear and the gums may appear shiny when the gum tissue becomes swollen and stretched over the inflamed underlying connective tissue. The accumulation may also emit an unpleasant odor.
Emergency DentistryDental emergencies can happen to anyone at any time, so it’s crucial to know where to find the best emergency dental care in Maple Valley. Our experienced Maple Valley emergency dentist can tell you if your dental condition is one that he/she can treat or if you should see a medical doctor for emergency treatment. Dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at. Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source (orofacial pain and toothache).
Wisdom Teeth ExtractionsWhen wisdom teeth are prevented from erupting into the mouth properly, they are referred to as impacted. Impacted teeth can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or formation of a cyst or tumor from the follicle, which forms the crown of the tooth. Many dentist recommend removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.
Night Guards & Sports GuardsWhen you're diagnosed with bruxism or teeth grinding, one of the most popular solution is a night guard. Although it doesn't really stop the habit of teeth clenching and grinding, it helps you prevent possible damage to your teeth during sleep. A mouth guard is an oral appliance that you usually wear during sleep so that it absorbs all the grinding and clenching forces.
