What is the difference between general dentistry and preventive dentistry?

Top Dentist in Winston-SalemPreventive dentistry relies on a proactive approach to dental care. In other words, preventive maintenance that helps your teeth last a lifetime. This includes:

  • Regular dental exams at least twice per year
  • Dental cleanings every six months
  • Periodic digital x-rays

The above is recommended by the American Dental Association, and patients who adhere to this tend to have fewer cavities, fewer incidence of periodontal disease, fewer dental emergencies, and a reduced incidence of tooth loss.  However, we customize our treatment plans to meet your unique oral health issues, which means appointment frequency varies based on your preventive dentistry needs.

If preventive dentistry is maintenance, general dentistry is “on the spot” safeguarding. General dentistry treats issues that arise periodically.

Our Winston-Salem, NC general dentist may utilize one or more of the following general dentistry treatments or procedures based on your situation:

  • Root canal
  • Filling
  • Dental extraction

 

Why do I need a crown instead of a filling?

When you have a deep cavity that requires a root canal, a filling may not be strong enough to keep your tooth viable. In this situation, our top general dentist may recommend a crown.

If you’ve had a root canal in the past that has failed and weakened your tooth, a dental crown is also a great way to save that tooth from breakage or loss.

A dental crown, aside from being aesthetically attractive, can help save a damaged tooth. It is a tooth-shaped cover that goes on over a prepared tooth. It looks and functions like a natural tooth and always colored to match your smile!

 

Can you hide my filling?

Absolutely! We understand that you don’t want a silver-colored filling or anything else metallic to take away from your smile.

Fillings have come a long way in recent years, and fillings in Winston-Salem, NC can even be shaded to match your teeth. No more silver but a color that blends in seamlessly and a polish that looks just like tooth enamel. No one will guess you’ve had a filling.

Our tooth-colored fillings, in fact, are a patient favorite.

 

How is a partial denture different from a dental bridge?

A partial denture is a plate or arch of tooth restorations that stand in for missing teeth. Generally, a partial denture fits around existing teeth and is removable for cleaning, rest, or when sleeping.

A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a natural-looking restoration (or restorations) secured between adjacent teeth with crowns and sometimes a dental implant. A dental bridge is not removable.

Partial dentures in Winston-Salem, NC are custom designed to fit your mouth. At Jeffrey J Tibbs DDS, PA, we pay special attention to the contours of your mouth and always make certain that your partial denture or bridge matches your teeth and fits your unique smile.

 

What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?

When you lose a tooth, it’s critical to have it replaced as soon as possible. A gap in your smile is unattractive, but that’s not your biggest problem. You may find it difficult to speak clearly, and a missing tooth can make eating your favorite foods difficult or impossible

A missing tooth also creates oral health problems that result in complicated treatments. The teeth adjacent to the space can start to drift, causing alignment issues that may eventually require orthodontics.

At our dental office, we offer tooth replacement solutions to fit your individual needs.

  • Full and partial dentures are a popular option because they work well for nearly everyone. If you resist the idea of dentures, you should know that technology and materials have dramatically improved their look, fit, and feel.
  • Dental implants are an ideal replacement because the implant post is rooted in your jaw and creates a stable base for the restoration we attach to it. We often use crowns to provide function for your implant, but you can also choose fixed bridges and full or partial dentures if you have multiple missing teeth.

Tooth Replacement in Winston-Salem, NC is what we do best!

 

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants begin with a comprehensive evaluation by our top Salem-NC implant dentist. During this exam, you can ask questions and share any relevant medical history. If Dr. Jeffrey Tibbs feels you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is implant placement.

Dental implants are small posts made of strong titanium. These posts are implanted in your gum and fuse with your jawbone over a period of months. When fusing is complete, these posts are anchors for your tooth restorations.

You can opt for a few implant posts to support an entire arch of restoration teeth, too.

Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth restorations because they provide a natural-looking and permanent solution to missing teeth. Additionally, they are easy to care for and require no special maintenance. In fact, you care for an implant the same way you care for a natural tooth.

  • Brush and floss
  • Visit our dentist regularly
  • Don’t skip professional teeth cleanings

While a dental implant cannot decay, it will not prevent gum disease. This is why regular dental visits are so important.

 

What types of cosmetic dentistry do you offer?

Dentist Winston SalemAt Jeffrey Tibbs, DDS, PA, we offer several cosmetic dentistry options to meet your needs and the goals you want to achieve for your smile.

These options include:

  • Dental implants—the best option for replacing missing teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers—to camouflage discoloration, tooth shape, tooth height, and reverse gummy smiles.
  • All porcelain crowns—to conceal damaged teeth, restore strength, and hide discoloration
  • Tooth-colored fillings and bonding—composite materials to fill a cavity or conceal unflattering cosmetic issues.
  • Professional teeth whitening—heads above anything you can purchase in the supermarket. Our cosmetic dentist utilizes the best whitening therapies to brighten your smile.

 

Do you take my insurance?

Trying to make sense of your dental insurance can be overwhelming, but we are here to handle the details for you. We accept all insurances and will file pre-treatment estimates and claims on your behalf. You don’t have to worry whether you are getting the most out of your coverage because it’s our job to help you.
