Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Braces are not just for kids anymore! Adults tend to get braces for numerous reasons besides just to make their teeth straight. A lot of adults feel that they can improve their professional lives with a straighter smile and regain their confidence. 

In adults, braces can make teeth straight to make them easier to brush and clean, adjust and correct issues in the bite, avoid excessive wear and fractures. New technology in orthodontics has helped shorten the time in braces and has made them look better. Age is not a reason to not do braces!

emergency dental care in metairie Emergency Dentistry at Oak Family Dental

A cracked tooth is simply what it sounds like, a crack in the tooth.  Teeth are made up of three layers, the hard outer layer the enamel, an inner layer the dentin, and the nerve of the tooth lies below the dentin.  Cracks typically start in the outer layer of the tooth and can progress into the underlying layers if no treatment is rendered. Early detection is key because as cracks progress in the tooth, they can lead to an infection, loss of the tooth, and overall poor oral hygiene.

dental exams in metairie A full mouth debridement may be necessary if you have thick or dense deposits of plaque and tartar on your teeth. Debridement is necessary when the deposits are too heavy to allow proper visualization of teeth and gums for a dentist to do a proper examination and diagnosis of your dental health. 

Comprehensive Examination

Following the debridement, a comprehensive examination by the dentist can be completed.  Findings on this examination may include additional treatment such as a deep periodontal cleaning or regular dental prophylaxis to polish the teeth, remove plaque, and improve your dental health.  

So, if you think you may be in need of a full mouth debridement and teeth cleaning then please, don't hesitate to contact our Metairie, LA dental office today!

 

 

Tooth wear starts when the outer layer of teeth, enamel, starts to wear down prematurely. Many factors including the way we chew, our diet and medical problems, such as acid refluxman after tooth colored fillings exam in metairie can cause teeth to wear. Clenching and grinding during sleep even cause tooth wear.

To prevent wear, we recommend regular removal of bacterial and acids from the mouth through brushing and mouth rinses. It is also a good idea to reduce the amount of acid in our diet, such as sodas. If you are clenching and grinding at night, a nightguard may be recommended. The treatment of tooth wear depends on the underlying cause of the wear so the first step is to diagnose the cause of the tooth wear. This may require visiting a physician for a physical.

Fixing Tooth Wear

There are many ways to build teeth back up to prevent wear or to at least slow the damage. We can build your teeth back up through the use of tooth-colored dental bonding. Bonding acts as part of your natural tooth and is completely unnoticeable.

For more information on dental bonding, call our office located in Metairie, LA today. Here at Oak Family Dental, our staff will make sure that you are taken care of and get the care that you need.
