Best Practices for Prevention
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy.. by yourself. Adhering to daily best dental habits helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. Here are some tips for the best preventive practices:
- Brush daily
- Floss regularly
- Eat healthy & colourful food
- Visit your dentist regularly
Look to Crowns and Bridges
Dr. Rakesh Maini might recommend a crown or bridge to help restore your smile due to damaged teeth. Here’s what you need to know: A bridge is generally used to cover a space left behind by missing teeth. As the term suggests, it bridges a gap between teeth for a more cohesive and flawless smile. This is often suggested to not only help restore your smile, but to stop your remaining teeth from shifting into space and further changing your bite and smile. A crown is like a cap on a damaged tooth or implant. This will often be suggested to restore a damaged tooth or to prevent further damage to a vulnerable tooth. Both porcelain and ceramic crowns look very natural and are matched to the shape and color of your natural teeth. Both are very common solutions and Dr. Maini would be happy to discuss your options with you.
Take Function Back
While dentures may not be the most natural option for everyone, there are many who prefer this option to replace lost teeth. Whether partial or full dentures, if fitted properly and with the correct maintenance, dentures can return full function. Dr. Rakesh Maini can talk with you about which options make most sense for you. If you choose dentures, our expert team will work with you on correct care and function for your new smile!
Beyond Your Dental Needs
Your headache could be started in your mouth
Often patients do not mention consistent headaches or head pain to their dentist because they don’t see the correlations, but we urge you to tell us whatever health issues you are experiencing. Tight bites or tooth pain could be the root cause of your tension headache or even migraine. Our team is trained to look for wear and tear from teeth grinding or tension in the jaw, two factors common with headaches. A consultation with Dr. Maini will help understand if your teeth could be contributing to your head pain.
Sport Dentistry – Confidence in Sport
Mouthguards today are a must for all athletes of all ages. The consequences of a dental injury are not only serious, but expensive, to fix. And with mounting evidence on the short-term and long-term impact of concussions, this couldn’t be a more important purchase.
In addition, we can help you be fitted for a ‘special’ customized Under Armour Armour-bite Sport Bite Oral Device that also has incorporated technology into its design which allows the user to not only protect their teeth, and has been shown to improve the wearer’s performance in their particular sport, whether it be getting better golf scores, quicker times in running events, cycling events, skiing events or even increasing and improving performance in events using strength and balance. Many professional and top athletes wear these customized bite guards.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental Implants are the next best thing to real teeth in that they help those with lost teeth to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural.
Dental implants themselves are typically titanium posts placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the post, creating a strong foundation to which the dental team can adhere artificial teeth. In addition to a natural look, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that typically occurs when teeth are missing.
Porcelain Veneers and Bonding
A Natural Look is Possible
Many of our patients are surprised how natural our porcelain veneers look as compared to regular teeth. Plus, with multiple layers of Porcelain ceramics, they offer a strength and resilience similar to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are often the natural choice for people looking to make slight positional alterations, or for those looking to change the shape, size, and/or colour of one or more teeth.
