Medical and Cosmetic Dentistry in Tucson Estates
First Dental Center serves patients in the Tucson Estates area for all of their dental needs. We offer comprehensive dental health services for people of all ages. Here’s what we can do to keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.
Checkups and Cleanings for the Whole Family
Everyone needs a dental checkup and a professional cleaning twice a year to keep their mouth healthy. These appointments give your dentist an opportunity to evaluate the overall health of your mouth. If you have a cavity forming or if you’re showing early signs of gum disease, Dr. Yang can spot the signs and intervene before the issue becomes serious.
If you have children, checkups are just as important. Kids should see the dentist as soon as their teeth start coming in. Dr. Yang can help see your child through the transition from primary (baby) teeth to permanent (adult) teeth. Regular dental appointments are an excellent way to show children how important dental hygiene will be throughout their lives. Start forming good habits early.
Treating Periodontal Disease
As many as half of adults will experience gum disease. Gingivitis is very common, and it’s also very treatable. When you catch gingivitis early, it can usually be resolved with no long lasting damage to the health of your teeth or gums. Dr Yang can help you restore the health of your mouth.
Advanced gum disease can cause significant problems, including tooth loss, gum loss, and erosion of the jawbone. It’s important to prevent gum disease from progressing to this point. If it has, you need immediate intervention to preserve as many healthy teeth as possible. Dr. Yang can treat advanced gum disease and discuss further plans to restore your dental health.
Having a Dental Emergency?
If you’re experiencing tooth or gum pain that’s impacting the way you eat, drink, or speak, that pain is a sign that something is wrong. Don’t wait to schedule a dental appointment. Dr. Yang can often provide same day or next day appointments for people experiencing dental emergencies.
If it’s possible to intervene on the spot, she can provide you with immediate service. If your tooth is severely infected, you may need to take antibiotics before medical intervention is possible. Dr. Yang will prescribe antibiotics and follow up with you when it’s safe to proceed.
Nearly Invisible Composite Fillings
Do you remember when everyone could see dental fillings? They were a dark silver color that really stuck out against the natural hue of teeth. That’s not the case anymore. Modern composite fillings are almost indetectable. They’re nearly the exact same shade as your teeth. They’ll blend right in, and nobody will be able to tell that you have fillings.
If you have a cavity, see Dr. Yang. She can make it seem like your cavity never happened. Just don’t forget to follow up with proper dental hygiene practices to prevent other cavities from forming.
Dental Extractions and Root Canals
Dental extractions and root canals are two procedures people usually get the most anxious about. Dr. Yang will always attempt a root canal first if the issue affects a vital tooth. Advanced root canal techniques aren’t intimidating procedures. You’ll begin to feel relief the moment you receive the numbing medication. Your tooth will be restored and you won’t have to endure the pain of a broken, damaged, or decayed tooth anymore.
Extractions are always a last resort unless the tooth is a wisdom tooth. If your wisdom teeth are beginning to cause discomfort, it’s better to remove them sooner rather than later. You don’t want to give them time to become infected or cause other issues within your mouth.
Repair Your Smile with Crowns or a Bridge
Crowns can work to fix broken or damaged teeth. Some people get crowns for cosmetic reasons. Many people get crowns to restore teeth that have chipped, cracked, or worn down.
Bridges can be used to fill gaps where you’ve lost teeth or had dental extractions. Bridges use crowns to attach one or more highly realistic porcelain teeth between two teeth. A bridge can help you feel more confident in your smile and make it easier to chew.
Get a New Smile with Dental Implants or Dentures
Dental implants are a great solution for people who have one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are very realistic false teeth that are attached below your gums. They look and function exactly like natural teeth.
Dentures or partial dentures are a solution for people who don’t have very many healthy teeth or people who experience continuous dental health issues. Today’s dentures look realistic and are more difficult to tell they are not natural teeth.
