General Dentistry & Your Oral Health
Daily brushing and flossing are two of the best ways to avoid oral hygiene problems. However, we always recommend scheduling a general appointment at our Frisco dental office every six months to maximize the benefits of your daily dental routine.
During these visits, Dr. De Paoli will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw, searching for even the most subtle signs of oral health disease. Receiving regular dental exams allows him to treat any necessary underlying oral health issues before they can progress.
Our General Dentistry Services
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final molars to grow into our mouths, usually when we’re around 16 years old. Most dentists recommend removing the wisdom teeth before they erupt past the gumline. That’s because they can crowd your other teeth or cause infection as they grow. Without an extraction, wisdom teeth may also become impacted or unable to grow, causing oral health problems in the future.
Dr. De Paoli can remove your wisdom teeth painlessly in one easy appointment to help maintain the alignment of your teeth. We’ll use our specialized dental technology, such as digital X-rays, to determine the best course of treatments for your wisdom teeth.
Periodontal (gum) disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults. That’s why we’re committed to maintaining and treating your gums during your semiannual dental checkup. During this appointment, members of our experienced dental team will meticulously examine your gums for signs of infection.
At your checkup, we’ll find and treat even the most subtle indications of disease. Contact us immediately if you notice any of the signs of periodontal disease, such as:
- Swollen, bleeding, and tender gums
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Widening gaps between teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Lengthened teeth or receding gums
When an infection is discovered that reaches the center of your tooth, there’s no need to panic. We have a solution for your discomfort that can save your tooth and restore its full functionality. Root canals are an essential treatment in dentistry that involves drilling into your tooth to remove the infected tissue and pulp. Once we’ve removed all of the infection, we’ll seal your tooth with a high-quality dental sealant.
Symptoms of an infected tooth may include:
- A persistent toothache
- Pain while biting and chewing
- Discomfort in a chipped or cracked tooth
- Swelling of the face or gums
- Darkened color of a tooth or the surrounding gum tissue
- Unusual sensitivity to heat or cold
Call us right away if you’re experiencing any of the above signs of infection. We’ll help you find an effective treatment, such as a root canal, to resolve any problems you have.
The Cavitron Touch Ultrasonic Cleaning technology is the highest-quality teeth cleaning method. We use this advanced dentistry solution to deep clean your teeth and gums, removing the causes of gum disease, plaque and tartar, in the process.
This technology is also one of the most sensitive available for cleaning your teeth. Learn why our patients love this incredible cleaning technology by visiting our Frisco, TX office.
InvisalignⓇ Clear Aligners
Creating the perfect smile doesn’t require traditional metal braces anymore — Invisalign clear braces are ideal for adults with bite alignment problems!
These revolutionary oral appliances are proven to straighten your teeth twice as fast as bulky traditional braces. Plus, you won’t have to change your lifestyle to correct your smile and improve your confidence. Schedule a consultation to discuss this advanced dental technology at our Frisco, TX dental office.
CT scans are a highly accurate technology that gives our dental team a clear picture of your muscles. They help us diagnose your dental troubles and determine the most appropriate treatment to save you time, discomfort, and money. It’s easier for us to create an effective solution when we can closely examine your jaw structure.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a nighttime habit that can lead to painful oral health and muscular problems. Thankfully, Dr. De Paoli can create a custom mouthguard to save your teeth from symptoms such as a weakened jaw muscle or cracked molars.
Your mouthguard will be personalized for your teeth and jaw, making it more effective and comfortable than a drug store solution. Learn more about bruxism and custom mouthguards at your consultation.
