Dentistry For Adults

Professional Cleaning of Your Teeth is Very Important

Over time, plaque and tartar can build up on teeth even with thorough brushing. When tartar starts to accumulate on teeth and below the gumline, you risk serious dental and health problems. Extensive research has proven that untreated gum disease can affect existing health conditions or promote the development of stroke, diabetes, or heart disease. We highly recommend regular visits to our office to have teeth cleaned by our professional hygienist. It is one of the best practices to stay healthy!

Saving Hopeless Teeth

In the past, the only solution for severely damaged or badly infected teeth was extraction. Today, root canal therapy is used in place of extraction in most cases. This is a procedure that takes out the pulp chamber within a tooth and replaces the pulp with a filling material. The usual filling is not suitable, as decay has reached the tooth’s nerve.

When dentists first performed root canals, they were painful and as a result received a negative reputation as something to avoid. But today, with advanced anesthetics and technology, they are often painless. Dr. Ruyak is well-experienced in the latest techniques to make it easy for you to save your tooth.

The Right Care for Seniors

Our bodies change as we age, and so do our teeth and gums. Continual consumption of coffee, tea, or tobacco over the years can turn teeth dark. Plaque may build up or fillings may crack. If certain medications are taken on a regular basis, the necessary flow of saliva will be reduced. We have procedures or products to relieve all of these conditions. With regular check-ups, we can catch problems in the earliest stages to help prevent serious conditions from occurring. We always encourage good nutrition and proper cleaning for our seniors. And we alert them to watch for teeth that become loose or gums that bleed and let them know they need to come into our office immediately!

If you have questions about these procedures, our dental team would be happy to help you. Give us a call at 610-861-0777.
