In addition to regular exams and cleanings, our comprehensive dentistry services include oral cancer screenings, soft tissue evaluations of the neck, head and jaw and state-of-the-art digital X-rays. While good oral hygiene practices like brushing after meals and eating less sugary items can reduce the risk of cavities, a tiny cavity may emerge on even the healthiest of teeth due to oral bacteria’s high-growth properties. By using digital X-rays, your Sun City dentist can:
Getting your teeth cleaned and fluoridated regularly is vital to maintaining good oral health. Right now, you could have a cavity forming on a tooth and not know it until you feel the first twinge of a toothache. Visiting your dentist every six months for a complete cleaning and polishing helps ensure your teeth are wiped clean of cavity-causing bacteria. During a cleaning, your dentist will also remove plaque sticking to your teeth, a biofilm rich with bacteria responsible for tooth decay. Fluoride is applied to prevent demineralization, another reason for cavity development.
To restore damaged teeth to a healthy condition and appearance, your dentist in Sun City can provide veneers and porcelain crowns such as Zirconia, Empress and Emax dental crowns. You simply can’t give someone your best, most radiant smile when you have discolored, chipped or cracked teeth. We can help you achieve an unforgettable smile by restoring unattractive teeth with natural-looking dental crowns.
Designed to cover a tooth like a cap, porcelain dental crowns are made to match the shade and structure of your real tooth so that it blends seamlessly with the tooth. In fact, crowns are one of the most affordable and easiest dental procedures that can give you beautiful, evenly proportioned teeth.
Crowns and veneers immediately address surface problems affecting teeth that are otherwise healthy and do not need additional dental work. In only two or three visits, you can have perfectly shaped, whiter teeth without undergoing extensive dental work. Crowns may also correct minor crookedness and gaps that do not require orthodontic procedures.
Restorative dentistry treatments could be considered types of cosmetic procedures because they both restore and improve damaged teeth or replace missing teeth. Crowns, inlays and onlays, tooth bonding, dentures and removable partials are restorative dentistry techniques and appliances.
Missing teeth not only prevent you from smiling but can also interfere with your ability to bite or chew. Fortunately, dental bridges remedy these problems by filling those unattractive and troublesome gaps in your teeth. Gaps between teeth exert strain on neighboring teeth by forcing them to “take over” functions once filled by missing teeth. This can weaken other teeth and may cause additional loss of teeth. Convenient and cost-effective, dental bridges easily replace missing teeth by using healthy, adjacent teeth as abutments to which the bridge is securely attached.
If you are missing one or two teeth or have cracked, chipped teeth, call Donoho Dental to learn about suitable replacement options, such as our state-of-the-art dental bridges.
Neglecting to replace teeth lost to decay, periodontitis, trauma or extraction will eventually have a negative effect on existing teeth and gums. Replacement of lost teeth with dental implants offers our patients a permanent and functional alternative to removable dentures or bridges.
Dental implant procedures are minimally invasive and involve:
Periodontitis causes tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease. Concerned about patients suffering the extensive consequences of periodontitis, Dr. Donoho takes aggressive action against infection by treating patients diagnosed with periodontitis with Arestin Microspheres, a new antibiotic treatment specifically formulated to attack pockets of periodontitis infection. You may have periodontitis if you have bleeding, swollen gums, dark yellow stains on teeth at the gum line, loose teeth or chronic bad breath.
When you know your smile is flashing a set of straight, white teeth, you naturally feel more confident and self-assured when meeting new people. Your speaking and chewing abilities also improve dramatically after your Sun City dentist restores or repairs damaged teeth or provides customized partial dentures or bridges to replace missing teeth.
If you haven’t seen a dentist in a while, don’t worry. We understand why it’s sometimes hard to visit your dentist, whether it’s because of a busy lifestyle or a slight case of dental phobia. At Donoho Dental, your needs always come first. In fact, you’ll leave our office feeling like you are truly “one of the family.”
