Dental checkups and cleanings are imperative. Many dental problems are progressive and will get worse over time. Getting a recommended two dental checkups every year will ensure Village Dental Group can catch any oral problems before they become serious issues. Catching these issues early will often allow an easy fix to the problem, but if issues like tooth decay or gingivitis are allowed to progress unchecked, the procedures required a fix that will be far more expensive than the original preventive care.
In-office bleaching provides the quickest way to whiten teeth. With in-office bleaching, the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth. These products can be used in combination with heat, a special light, and/or a laser. Results are seen in only one, 30- to 60-minute treatment. But to achieve dramatic results, several appointments are usually needed. However, with in-office bleaching, dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.

Village Dental Group provides quality dental care for infants, children, and teens. We believe an early start in maintaining your child's oral health is invaluable for a promising dental future. We encourage and teach children to develop good dental hygiene habits and nutritional choices. The pediatric dentist examines the teeth for signs of early decay, monitors orthodontic concerns, tracks jaw and tooth development, and provides a good resource for parents. In addition, the pediatric dentist has several tools at hand to further reduce the child’s risk for dental problems, such as topical fluoride and dental sealants.
The nerve in a tooth can become infected for many reasons. For example, an area of deep decay could involve the nerve, or the accidental fracture of part of the tooth could expose the nerve. Sometimes, just a blow to the tooth can cause the nerve to die and become infected. In any case, when the nerve becomes infected, the nerve tissue must be removed by either extracting the tooth, or performing a root canal(endodontic treatment). Ideally, the root canal should be done before the infection has a chance to get into the bone, before the area develops extreme swelling and pain. Periodic dental examinations, and having your tooth checked when it first begins to hurt will usually help avoid severe complications.
