Save Money With Dental Implants At Providence Dental

Las Vegas Tooth ImplantsQ: For Las Vegas residents: When is the least expensive tooth replacement method really the most expensive?
A: When it ends up costing far more in the long run.

Many Las Vegas dentistry patients who lose a tooth do not understand the importance of replacing it with a dental implant. They wrongly believe that one missing tooth is not a significant problem. In fact, some NW Las Vegas people who have an abscessed tooth extracted are so glad the pain is gone that they forget that the extraction is not the solution. When a tooth is lost, the risk of losing the adjacent teeth increases dramatically.

Dr. David Scharf, a Board Certified Periodontist and Dental Implant Surgeon and a Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University College of Dentistry says:

“Many times consumers will choose to replace a missing tooth with a removable partial denture because it is the least expensive option. In the long run however, removable partial dentures may be more costly due the loss of adjacent teeth and the need for future replacements. Many people opt to replace teeth with dental implants because they do not compromise the survival of the adjacent teeth.”

Dr. Scharf notes…

“With the price of gasoline and food soaring people try to cut back wherever they can. Unfortunately choosing the least expensive options for tooth replacement can have some very costly ramifications down the road.”

If you are missing a tooth, you may still be able to save the adjacent teeth if receive an implant soon. An implant bonds with the jaw bone and helps maintain its stability.

Treatment For Sensitive Teeth

Centennial Hills cosmetic dental and tooth implants

For anyone who feels pain when sipping your morning coffee, or who cringe each time you brush or floss, the dentists at Providence Dental in Las Vegas are here for you.

The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in receding gums, which results in the exposure of microscopic tubules in the dentin. When these tubules are exposed, acidic, hot, cold, and sticky foods can then reach the nerve cells in the teeth causing discomfort (who are we kidding—it’s pain).

We can figure out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits. We usually recommend toothpaste for sensitive teeth. These reduce pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.

Studies show that as many as forty million people have tooth sensitivity. If you’re among them, remember that it most cases you can do something about it. Call us at Providence Dental in Las Vegas for an appointment. We offer family dentistry, and specialties like wisdom teeth extraction. We also offer urgent dental care. Call today.

Ignoring It Won’t Make It Go Away

Ignoring It Won't Make It Go Away

Are you suffering with a toothache, but ignoring the pain? Have you started chewing on one side of your mouth to avoid your sensitive teeth? Have you stopped drinking hot and cold beverages to alleviate the discomfort? If you’re suffering with toothache pain, call us at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas.

Dental pain is like an unpaid speeding ticket: ignoring it won’t make it go away. Yet many of us share that very human tendency to ignore a toothache. Many of us just plain dread seeing the dentist because of fear the treatment will hurt worse than the toothache.

Waiting too long to care for your teeth can cause serious health problems – and not just in your mouth.

The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. Cavities are easily treatable with fillings. But toothaches may also be caused by problems having nothing to do with teeth, or even with the jaw. Toothache pain can be mimicked by, for example, a sinus infection.

No matter the cause, it’s important to seek help. At Summer Dental in North Las Vegas we offer toothache relief by properly diagnosing the cause and then treating it. We also provide family dentistry, emergency dentistry, and wisdom teeth extraction. Schedule an appointment with us today.
