WHY IS PREVENTION IMPORTANT?
Oral Health for Overall Health
Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent caries and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being.
At Chrysalis Dental Care we will complete a full periodontal assessment to check the status of your gums and bones around the teeth. We will complete standard or deep cleans as necessary and show you the best techniques for maintaining good oral hygiene between appointments. A strong foundation of healthy gums and healthy bones is essential for keeping your natural teeth.
PROTECTING CRACKED TEETH
Save cracked teeth with Crowns
Cracked teeth can become lost teeth
Teeth that have very large fillings or a history of trauma are at risk of cracking. These cracks propagate deep into the tooth over time. If the crack touches the nerve, the tooth needs a root canal. If the crack gets deep into the root, the tooth might not be possible to save. The dental crown is a strong cap that acts like a helmet on the tooth to prevent propagation of cracks and save the tooth in the long run. Dental crowns are shade matched and custom made at our trusted dental laboratory for optimum strength and aesthetics.
Did you know grinding is 10x more powerful than chewing?
Grinding or clenching your teeth at night can lead to broken teeth, jaw problems, headaches and poor posture
The occlusal splint is a soft intra-oral appliance developed to relieve the pain associated with your jaw muscles. It helps decompress the joint and limits tooth grinding or clenching. Tense jaw muscles lead to headaches, problems eating, muscular imbalance, poor posture and worsened quality of sleep. If you are experiencing pain in your jaw muscles, don't hesitate to talk to us about your options.
