Common Questions About Dental Concerns
What causes gum recession?
Gum recession is often caused by gum disease, a bacterial infection that impacts the health of teeth and gums. Bacteria builds up as plaque that inflames the gums and forms deep gum pockets if left untreated. At Pharr Road Dentistry, we can remove gum infection and help preserve the tooth structure.
What are the best treatments for missing teeth?
Dr. Patel recommends implant restorations for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants replace teeth at the root and fuse to the jawbone during a process called osseointegration. Implants undergo this process over 3 to 6 months after the initial dental implant surgery. Osseointegration helps ensure that implants are secure and stable in the mouth.
Additionally, dental implants can secure dental bridges and dentures. Patients who have rows of missing teeth or have even lost arches of teeth can receive long-lasting dental restorations. Removable bridges or dentures can irritate the gums and often require messy adhesives. Alternatively, dental implants look and function just like natural teeth without the need for additional aid.
How do I treat jaw pain?
One of the most common causes of jaw and tooth pain is bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding. Bruxism can be treated with oral appliances that are worn at night during sleep. Similar to mouthguards, these nightguards prevent tooth damage and alleviate jaw and facial pain.
