Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is an acrylic-like material that helps shield out decay-causing bacteria from the chewing surfaces of back teeth. We base our diagnosis and recommendation for dental sealants on the patient's susceptibility to tooth decay and how the teeth were shaped when they originally formed below the gum. Though there is no specific age at which sealants are indicated, often we will recommend that the best time to apply them is when the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear.
How Long Do Sealants Last?
Depending on your chewing pattern, the sealant effect can last many years. Even though sealant material is durable, at subsequent dental appointments we make sure the sealant material is intact. more.

Dental Veneers

Veneers, usually fabricated from porcelain, are a thin, semi-translucent “shell,” custom made to fit precisely over an existing tooth. They are permanently bonded, held in place by a special resin that adheres the back of the veneer to the front of the tooth. The finished result is extremely strong and durable. Though veneers are not suitable for every patient, they are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions affecting the front teeth, including:
• closing diastemas (spaces between the teeth)
• restoring broken or chipped teeth
• covering unsightly, stained or washed- out fillings
• whitening permanently stained or discolored teeth
• correcting uneven or crooked teeth more.

After reading the other reviews, I decided I would try Dr. Pham because my tooth pain wasn't going away. I have to say Dr. Pham is worth every penny! To begin with, her office returned my call within 10 mins on a Friday morning and met me within the hour. She was was able to identify the problem right away. She is a very kind person and I will refer to her if I ever have another situation.

Everyone is so helpful and understanding at ProDental! I get the sense that they genuinely care about you as a patient. They answered and questions I threw at them and I felt like I learned a lot of new things about my teeth (and how to maintain them). I've had some bad experiences before when it came to anything like this, but I am convinced that this is one of my best experiences to date!

I have to extend my sincere compliments to the entire staff at ProDental! They are AWESOME!!! It is not a surprise that many of us dread going to see a dentist, but I actually say, that I look forward to my routine 6 month visits for cleaning. It is very hard to come by an office which is run so efficiently, takes the utmost regard for patient comfort and cleanliness, while at the same time providing such excellent services for their patients. I would highly recommend the dentist and her staff to anyone seeking a reliable, and honest dentist.

Teeth aches and numb teeth is what disease?

To learn about the condition of tooth pain and numbness of the teeth is what we go together to find out the cause of this symptom.

Causes of dental enamel failure leading to the pain and numbness of the teeth is caused by daily cleaning, improper care, not regular, correct technique according to the instructions of the doctor. The patient's choice of toothbrush and toothpaste as well as irrational mouthwash. There are too many bleach ingredients that make teeth enamel prone to erosion.

Another cause of tooth enamel damage that can not be mentioned is the food is on the menu every day. Foods that contain too much acid will cause tooth enamel damage. Or bad habits such as grinding teeth during sleep, the habit of using the teeth to open the bottle cap, lid, then the impact of external forces such as accidents or collisions are too strong ... are also causes. enamel affected.

Causes of tooth pain and numbness are also caused by another cause which is the main reason that most of the people are due to dental disease. Almost all oral diseases have symptoms of pain and numbness. 

When the tooth enamel is damaged it will not be able to continue to cover and protect the inner layer of the dentin, leading to increased pain, numbness due to sensitive dentine exposed directly to the environment, food. This condition will lead to serious complications affecting oral health. Most affect the psychology of patients, upset the daily activities and reduce the quality of life as well as work.

Why are teeth more sensitive to bleaching?

After whitening, the teeth will be a little more sensitive is a very normal problem. In the process of bleaching, you may not feel any sense, always feel the comfort despite the doctor is in your mouth. However, after bleaching is complete, you may feel a little pain, sometimes a sense of discomfort. 

The cause of this condition is due to the anesthetic that has run out and the side effects of the bleach started to develop. Because bleach contains a very high detergent, so bleaching, even when using the prescribed dosage, it somewhat caused a little bit later.

However, sensitive teeth cause this feeling of sensitivity only takes about 24 hours after bleaching Minh Minh offline. This feeling will go away soon and you will no longer feel sensitive when you eat.

And Dear! Teeth Whitening is a whitening method that helps teeth whiten and look aesthetically pleasing. It has a beautiful effect on the mouth and does not affect oral health if the entire bleaching process is properly performed by a specialist. Bleaching does not have a strong impact on oral health so you do not need to worry that your teeth will be weakened after bleaching.

After bleaching if symptoms persist for a long time and there are no signs of remission, then you should go to the dentist to check the doctor and take timely remedies.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (endodontics) treats disorders of the nerve (also called the pulp) of the tooth. It used to be that a tooth with a diseased or infected nerve had to be removed. In 95 percent of the cases today, however, this is no longer true. We believe in saving teeth (instead of removing them). We make every effort to help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime!
What Makes a Root Canal Necessary?
The following are the most common factors contributing to a need for root canal treatment:
     • Trauma, such as a physical blow to a tooth or a constant striking of a tooth in the opposite jaw that traumatizes the tooth
     • Physical irritation caused by a deep decay or a very large filling
     • Severe gum disease
Regardless of the initial cause, the tooth pulp becomes irritated and infected. Bacteria grow within the tooth pulp, causing pressure and pain, sometimes accompanied by swelling of the face. Sometimes the deterioration of the pulp happens so gradually that little pain is felt. Either way, eventually the bacteria can destroy the pulp. As this happens, the bone surrounding the tooth may become infected and abscessed, which may lead to the destruction of the bone surrounding the tooth.
(If a cavity forms and is allowed to go untreated for too long, it can penetrate to the root pulp where an infection can occur.)
What Happens During Treatment?
If we determine through x-rays and a clinical examination that root canal treatment is necessary, we will schedule a series of appointments for you. It is important that you keep these appointments to prevent delays in treatment and healing, which can affect the outcome. It's also essential that you take all antibiotics and medications prescribed to has- ten healing and reduce swelling. more.
