Preventive care includes daily brushing and flossing at home, along with two trips to us Woodhaven dentist at Liberty Dental each year for a complete examination and teeth cleaning. Keeping you from suffering the worst consequences of tooth decay and gum disease takes less effort than most people think. And avoiding cavities and periodontal problems is a much better strategy than having to treat them once they have already occurred.
Tooth decay and gum disease are the result of dental plaque, the filmy bacterial substance that grows on teeth and at the gum line. Sugar and starch are catalysts for plaque, so the less you consume, the better the odds are for maintaining optimal oral wellness. You should brush your teeth upon waking each day, and then again at night before you go to sleep. Bedtime is also the most suitable opportunity to floss between your teeth. The goal is to remove most of the plaque you have. Some may manage to avoid the reach of your oral hygiene, though. It will eventually turn to a hardened substance called tartar. The hazards to your teeth from it are the same as with plaque, but you need a teeth cleaning to eliminate it. You’ll get them when you visit our Woodhaven dentist for your six month checkups. In addition to eradicating tartar buildup and residual plaque, teeth cleanings reverse the signs of early stage gum disease, or gingivitis, and halt the progression to advanced gum disease. As part of your check up, our Woodhaven dentist will also detect and promptly fill any cavities detected, thereby preventing them from growing larger and putting you at increased risk for toothaches, infections, and even the loss of a tooth.
For outstanding preventive care, contact our office right now and arrange a visit to see our Woodhaven dentist.

Not only will it not heal on its own, there’s a good chance the toothache will worsen. Pain could be the least of your concerns if the cause of the toothache is dangerous, even fatal. Infected roots fall under that category. They are a very dangerous source of toothaches. Leaving that untreated is a terrible idea. In case you’re wondering, an infected root stems from a cracked tooth that leaves the root exposed enough for bacteria to charge in and wreak havoc. This infection can spread into the rest of your system, becoming a fatal and painful threat. Abscesses (an infection between tooth and gum) function in a similar manner.

Emergency dentist in Woodhaven
We certainly hope you never do, but should you or a family member ever have a toothache, we urge you to immediately contact us at Liberty Dental. Our emergency dentist in Woodhaven, Dr. Milan Gandhi, will assess the cause of your toothache and provide you with top-notch emergency dental care.
There are different reasons why a patient can have a toothache. A simple and common reason for a toothache is a dental cavity. When this is the case, all that will need to be done is that our emergency dentist in Woodhaven will treat the dental cavity, and your tooth will be feeling better. If you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center, your tooth may feel painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it. If a tooth has damaged or infected pulp, our dentist will need to provide a root canal procedure so that all infected and damaged pulp can be removed from the center of the tooth. At our office, we have state-of-the-art equipment, and our dentist uses the most modern dental techniques and dental anesthesia. For these reasons, our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair while the root canal procedure is performed. If a tooth is so damaged that a root canal procedure will not be successful, our dentist can surgically extract the tooth, at our office. Wisdom teeth are also a common source of tooth pain. If you come to our office with an infected or impacted wisdom tooth, our dentist will most likely recommend that the wisdom tooth is simply extracted at our office. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for thorough chewing or for clear speech, they almost always do not need to be replaced.
For an appointment to be seen by our emergency dentist in Woodhaven for a toothache or other emergency dental problem, contact us and let us know the reason for your call.
Dental fillings are often the only things standing between your teeth and a bacterial infection that can lead to root canal therapy. Furthermore, an unfilled cavity will typically grow larger and may render the tooth too weak to function without the help of a crown (cap). In the worst case scenarios, you may end up needing the tooth pulled. Here at Liberty Dental, Woodhaven dentist are proud to offer advanced dental fillings made out of composite or ceramic.
As dental plaque, and the hardened tartar that it turns into in time, erode your tooth enamel, eventually a hole forms, or what is popularly known as a dental cavity. In the past, the most common and sometimes only, option for fillings were amalgam, which meant metals such as gold and silver. They were strong, but they had some serious drawbacks to them. For one thing, the presence of mercury, which we now know to be toxic. For another, metal expands and contracts, leading to a greater possibility of tooth fractures. And for many people, the most glaring disadvantage was that they stood out. Our Woodhaven dentist provides tooth-colored fillings that blend in ideally with the color of your teeth. They also don’t put your teeth at risk for fractures, and they don’t contain mercury. Our Woodhaven dentist will help you to decide which material is most appropriate for your tooth, taking into consideration such factors as the location of the tooth, personal preferences, and your budget. Ceramic is more costly, but it also lasts longer. The good news is that with either choice, you will be ensuring that your tooth remains healthy and protected from infections and other problems.
Schedule an appointment for a twice-yearly examination. With the assistance of x-rays, any cavities will be detected by our Woodhaven dentist and addressed right away.
