tooth decay pictures at https://www.providencedental.com/blog/ Are you a parent of young children? Do you want them to develop better oral hygiene habits than you did when you were young? Perhaps you have a beautiful smile and want to prevent tooth decay. Many people have a mouth full of fillings and don’t want to add another one to their collection. At Providence Dental, we have a prevention-oriented philosophy of dental care.

Your first step toward dental health begins with a prevention consultation. Dental patients of all ages need to start with an exam to determine their current status. Your dental condition is influenced by your dietary habits, previous dental work, physical health, medications, lifestyle and family history. After a comprehensive analysis, we’ll establish a decay prevention plan just for you.

A prevention plan is a multi-faceted approach designed to maintain optimum dental health. It involves affordable preventative services at Providence Dental. Twice-yearly exams reveal early problems before they progress. Deep cleanings prevent a multitude of serious dental issues for our patients who faithfully keep their regular cleaning appointments.

Oral health cannot be maintained solely in our office. Daily brushing and flossing is essential. A healthy diet has positive effects on your dental health, so make sure you’re getting proper nutrition.

If you suspect you have a cavity or gum disease, call us at 702-984-2540 before it gets worse. We can successfully treat your current problems and restore your dental health. In addition, we will set you on the path toward a healthier future.

Think You May Have A Cavity?

white dental fillings Las Vegas

Hello friends of Providence Dental! Teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. Even when we do our best to practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause dental caries – the common cold of oral health. At Providence Dental, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental troubles you are experiencing.

Few individuals go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they experience in childhood.

Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque.

Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth which can also be accompanied by a pain.

Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to repair a cavity. At Providence Dental, we use top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then identify exactly what type of filling is necessary. We offer white fillings that are as durable as conventional metal fillings and match your teeth precisely.

Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, dentist Do will carry out the required preparations for the procedure. When a filling is completed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we make sure the process is done with accuracy.

A filling isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because dental caries can develop in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.

Checkups are an important part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Providence Dental. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Las Vegas have trusted us with their teeth since 2016.

Preventing Facial Injuries in Work and Athletics

Las Vegas Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often. Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls, and motorists sustain injuries in harmful collisions every day. Accidents at home can also result in serious injury to the face.

Serious facial injuries can affect the victim’s ability to eat, breathe, and speak. Because of the vital physical processes at risk, a person who has suffered a facial injury should receive medical care as soon as possible. Injuries to the mouth are treated by general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Providence Dental, we are passionate about the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 702-984-2540 to talk to us about mouth guard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to critical safety procedures. With respect to motor vehicle injuries, the following instructions bear repetition: Wear your seat belt and don’t send or read text messages while driving!

If you have suffered a recent injury to your face, mouth, or jaw, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us. If you are having dental problems due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.

Preventative Maintenance For Your Irreplaceable Smile

Preventative Maintenance For Your Irreplaceable Smile In Las Vegas

Hi, I’m Steven Do of Providence Dental. If you are one of my existing patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, I appreciate you stopping by.

My convenient team and I love taking care of our valued Las Vegas, Providence, NW Las Vegas, and Centennial Hills patients.

Today’s article is for Las Vegas smiles that are overdue for a cleaning and exam.

During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply. We are passionate about preventative dentistry to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. If you are due for a cleaning, call us today at 702-984-2540 to schedule.

After your teeth have been cleaned, I perform a thorough examination. I check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.

Some Las Vegas people mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental troubles advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.

If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It is far less pricey to prevent dental problems than to treat them after they have become severe.

If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Providence Dental today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
