Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Hillcrest Dental Care we call this 'crisis treatment' as opposed to 'preventive treatment.' While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. Most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.
An example is tooth decay – it doesn’t hurt until it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. Then a costly root canal or dental crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed inexpensively several years ago when the cavity was small. If you have questions regarding dental emergencies, please call our office at (254) 848-6696 today.
Millions of adults struggle with hypersensitive teeth, meaning they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, very sugary or acidic foods and drinks and vigorous tooth brushing. Above the gum line, dentin is protected with a coating of enamel. Unfortunately, as enamel is worn away or decayed, dentin becomes exposed and receptive to sensations that cause painful nerve responses.
This can also occur as the result of receding gums, a common symptom of gum disease. If your teeth are sensitive, please call Hillcrest Dental Care today at (254) 848-6696 to schedule a consultation.
Sure, it's annoying when friends, spouses or children grind their teeth at night, but the effects could be much more serious than the loss of a good night's sleep on your part. This sleep disorder, called bruxism, can lead to a number of ailments, including loose or lost teeth. Even lighter grinding can wear down tooth enamel.
If you or someone in your family is grinding their teeth at night, call us at (254) 848-6696 to schedule an appointment with FistName Thrasher, D.D.S..
