Proper dental care can improve the health and well-being of every member of a family. From approximately a year of age through the senior years of life, a variety of dental problems can happen. Elwood family dentistry offers pain-free dentistry for routine dental care, sleep disorders, crowns, orthodontics, implants, cosmetic dentistry, jaw pain, and so much more. Early detection of a dental problem can reduce the need for more extensive or expensive dental treatment in the future. Routine cleanings and checkups can eliminate the excess bacteria from developing in the mouth which causes gum disease that can destroy the roots of the teeth.
Sleep disorders can cause a variety of health problems. In some cases, this condition can be fixed by a dentist. Common causes of sleep disorders are alcohol, smoking, allergies, sleep apnea, obesity, hypothyroidism, health problems and other conditions. A dentist can evaluate the cause of the disorder and may be able to correct the problems with the problem with a dental appliance or minor surgery. This type of treatment can eliminate the need for using a noisy machine at night to sleep. A dentist will perform a thorough examination to determine the cause before treatment can proceed. Snoring can be eliminated in many cases with the help of Elwood family dentistry.
Dental implants can restore and renew a smile when one or several teeth are missing. They can be used for replacement of removable dentures or to secure them from slipping out of place. They are a permanent solution to restoring a smile and will look and feel like natural teeth. The only thing they won’t do is develop a cavity like a natural tooth. This type of treatment takes approximately three visits to complete and will eliminate the teeth from shifting, improve an individual’s facial features, and give someone the confidence they’ve been lacking each time they smiled when their teeth were missing.
Cosmetic dentistry can whiten your teeth and chips, and discoloration can be corrected with a non-invasive procedure applying veneers to the front of a tooth.
