Dental Exams and Cleanings
The cornerstone of our general dentistry practice in Brampton is your regularly scheduled dental checkup. Dr. Fava would like to see you and everyone else in your family at least twice each year for a checkup. With this regularity, we can more carefully monitor for any changes in your oral health that may be of concern. At these checkups, we also routinely clean your teeth and remove any plaque or tartar buildup. Dr. Fava will assess the health of your teeth and gums, checking for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Our intraoral camera combined with digital x-rays allow us to have a more complete view of your overall oral health.
Dr. Fava and his team are always happy to see the very youngest members of your family, too. Hard to believe, but those precious, white smiles are susceptible to cavities and gum disease, also. To help protect your children’s teeth, we often recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments, both of which enhance the natural ability of teeth to fight decay.
Gum Disease Prevention and Care
Initially, the signs of gum disease are difficult to detect. So, attending regular checkups with your dentist in Brampton, ON, are a good way to make sure this infection doesn’t get a start in your mouth. Gum disease—called gingivitis in the early stage and periodontitis in the later stage—is a bacterial infection of the gums and bone tissue that support your teeth. Left untreated, this disease can lead to shifting teeth, loose teeth and ultimately tooth loss. Fortunately, treatment is available with periodontal therapy from Torbram Dental.
Nightguards and Mouthguards
Teeth grinding and clenching, also called bruxism, is a habit that typically happens while you sleep. So, stopping this habit on your own is next to impossible. Bruxism is often a consequence of stress or anxiety, so practicing stress reduction techniques can be helpful. Nevertheless, Dr. Fava can prescribe a custom nightguard to wear while you sleep. This comfortable oral appliance separates your upper and lower teeth, so you can’t grind and clench.
Likewise, a custom athletic mouthguard protects teeth, lips, gums and tongue during athletics. Regardless of old the sports enthusiast is in your family, a mouthguards is essential during games, practice and leisurely play. And studies show that wearing a mouthguard can also lessen the seriousness of a concussion.
