Even Minor Dental Problems Can Lead to Chronic Tooth Pain
Posted on 4/15/2019 by Crossroads Family Dental
When something is happening inside your mouth, minor or major, it is important that you speak with our dentists. Those smaller problems that you think are not a big deal can turn into larger problems that require immediate attention. Do not let that small cavity that just needs a small filling turn into a gaping hole of decay that requires a root canal and crown. The Importance of Seeking Regular Dental Care Our office welcomes to everyone. We know that obtaining regular dental care is important. This is why when you have even the slightest dental problem, it is important that you give our office a call. We have worked with people that have had small problems that ended up being large ones later on because they do not handle them. If this is the case, make sure to seek out the dental care that is needed. It might seem like a small inconvenience now, but if the problem persists, then it can become a lot of pain. Instead of having to go through this and risk having a bigger problem happen, make sure to speak with our professionals that can quickly take care of the smaller problem, so it doesn't turn into a bigger one. Many think that if they ignore it, it will go away. This is not the case, always consult with our professional dentists. Reach Out to Us Today! Contact our office today to set up an appointment for a cleaning or an exam. If you're having an emergency situation, please call us and let us know. We can make sure that the work that needs to be done in your mouth can be done to prevent further pain from happening. Give us a call today, even for those minor problems, because even minor problems become major ones with time....

Speaking with Us at Each Appointment Helps You Get the Best Care Possible
Posted on 3/25/2019 by Crossroads Family Dental
We know that some people have a real issue with dentists. We're not sure why, because we are wonderful people. However, we know that some people are afraid to come to the dentist. Trust us, we want to make your dental visit as easy as possible for you. We want you to be comfortable enough at the dentist that you can talk to us about the health of your teeth and gums, because when you talk to us about your teeth and gums, we can help you get the best care possible. Why Communication Is Important While we can see some issues within your mouth through our dental examination, we can't always see everything that is going on with your teeth and gums. We also don't know how long you may have had a particular issue either, which may be important for a diagnosis and for treatment. For example, we may see that your gums are bleeding, but we may not be able to know how long they have been bleeding unless you tell us. Knowing how long they have been bleeding will help us treat you better. It could be that your gums are bleeding due to medication issues, or due to another health concern. However, if you let us know what is going on, we can figure out the best way to treat you. Your dental health actually has an effect on your overall health. Gum disease can worsen the risk for infections in your mouth, and can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and a worsening of symptoms of diabetes and dementia. If you want to make an appointment to come in and talk to us about your dental health, please do. We promise we will not bite you if you do not bite us. All kidding aside, we understand your fears about the dentist, and we will work to minimize those fears as much as possible. Why not give us a call today?...

How Long Can a Professional Dental Whitening be Expected to Last?
Posted on 3/15/2019 by Crossroads Family Dental
So you have been to the dentist, and we have whitened your teeth beautifully. You are so excited about your beautiful white smile, but how do you keep it? How long should a professional tooth whitening last? The answer is—it depends on how you treat your teeth down the road. Professional Whitening There are several ways we can whiten your teeth for you. You can come in for a tray fitting, and then you will whiten your teeth at home with a whitening tray and our products. This procedure, usually called teeth bleaching, takes about 3 to 4 weeks to finish. There are also products we can give you to cut your time down to about a week, if you can use it for 8 hours a day. If you want an even quicker whitening experience, we can offer you laser whitening, where a laser is used to whiten your teeth quickly using an agent on your teeth. This type of whitening is faster than other tooth whitening, and it is also more expensive. We can also do your whitening for our in our office rather than you whitening your teeth at home. How Long Does It Last? Professional teeth whitening can last as long as three years. However, how white your teeth stay depends on you. Frequent brushing and flossing helps keeps your teeth white. Come and visit us regularly to get your teeth professionally cleaned and checked. Also, be sure to limit your intake of food and drink that could stain your teeth. If you need to drink caffeine to help reduce your irritability level, be sure and drink these beverages first, then brush your teeth. We can help you get your teeth white and keep them white. Why not call us today to make an appointment to come in for a consultation on teeth whitening?...
