Dr. Young recommends these visits take place every six months for all patients over the age of one.
In addition to routine visits, our general dentistry services include:
- Tooth colored fillings
- Porcelain inlays and onlays
- Tooth bonding
- Dental crowns
- Root canal therapy
- Gum disease treatment
- Dental bridges
- Oral cancer screenings
Dr. Young also offers a full range of neuromuscular dentistry options for the treatment of TMJ, cosmetic dentistry services for the perfection of your smile, and sedation dentistry options to ensure your optimal comfort no matter what treatment you are receiving.
Oral Health Is the Foundation for a Beautiful Smile
If your teeth aren’t healthy, it’s harder to make them and keep them beautiful. Teeth that aren’t cleaned regularly are going to be more stained, and they’re going to develop more tartar (also called dental calculus), which can be unsightly.
Dental decay creates dark spots on your teeth. Even with fillings, the cosmetic impact on your smile can be significant if your dentist is using dental amalgam or even composite resin fillings, which can be attractive, but are also vulnerable to staining.
Unhealthy gums can turn red and swell, which looks unattractive. Missing teeth are the most conspicuous defect in a smile.
So maintaining healthy teeth is an essential foundation for cosmetic dentistry.
Oral Health Is the Foundation of General Health
If your mouth isn’t healthy, neither are you. Gum disease is a chronic infection, which creates a permanent inflammatory state. Chronic inflammation has been linked to many serious health conditions, including diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
Bacteria from infected gums can travel to your heart, where it can infect the heart, leading to endocarditis and congestive heart failure. It also forms a significant component of arterial plaque.
Bacteria from infected teeth can also travel to your heart. They can also infect your sinuses and even your brain.
Overall, having a full set of healthy teeth is linked to longer life and better health overall.
