Caring for adult teeth is unique because they’re more prone to wear-and-tear than teeth in children and adolescents. From coffee stains and worn enamel to cracked teeth and gum disease, preserving oral health in adults is essential.
That’s why it’s important to schedule a visit with the team at Mosaic Dental at least once every six months. During these exams, the team evaluates the health and appearance of your teeth and gums to determine whether you need preventive, cosmetic, or restorative treatments to preserve your smile.
Dentistry for adults helps prevent and treat an array of conditions that primarily affect adults, such as:
Nearly half of adults over the age of 30 have gum disease. Gum disease is an infection that causes inflammation. Over time, it can eat away at your tooth-supporting bone and tissue, leading to tooth loss.
Tooth decay, or cavities, is a buildup of sticky plaque and bacteria on your teeth. Plaque releases toxins that erode your teeth and cause damage. Without treatment, tooth decay can lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
A tooth can become infected when plaque and bacteria reach the soft center, called the pulp. Tooth infections are painful and potentially dangerous without treatment. Once an infection spreads and grows, the tooth can become damaged to the point that it needs removal.
The team at Mosaic Dental performs a wide range of services for adults, including:
After removing decay from your tooth, the team restores it with a filling. While traditional fillings are made of metal, the team at Mosaic Dental offers white fillings for adults who want to preserve the natural look of their teeth.
If you lose all or some of your teeth, dentures can restore your bite and help maintain the shape of your face. For optimal comfort, the Mosaic Dental team offers natural-looking dentures that won’t slip or shift on top of your gums.
The Mosaic Dental team can save an infected tooth by performing a root canal. This treatment removes the pulp from the center of your tooth and replaces it with a putty-like material called gutta-percha to eliminate the infection.
At Mosaic Dental, the team receives special training to treat teeth and gums in those with chronic conditions like diabetes. They offer complimentary consultations and judgment-free care for those struggling to prevent and treat gum disease and tooth decay with a chronic condition.
