There are many reasons a dental crown may be needed including to protect a weak tooth from breaking, restore a tooth that is already broken, support and cover a tooth with a large filling when there is little tooth left, hold a dental bridge in place, or cover a tooth that has had a root canal. A tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth, a dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, strength, and size, and improves its appearance. A dental crown is a type of dental restoration used at our Attleboro dental office that completely cups over a tooth and is permanently cemented into place, becoming your tooth’s new outer surface. Not only does it function like any natural tooth but it should be cared for the same, as well.

Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal alloy or a combination of both and Dr. Arkady Naiman will consult with you to explain his recommendation. A dental crown, however, offers a big advantage over a dental filling because of the way it’s constructed. Using molds of your teeth, crowns are made in a dental lab by a dental technician. Dental fillings are built right in your mouth by placing the filling material directly upon your tooth and you may not get that perfect tooth shape or feel as you would with a crown. Made in a lab, dental crowns are made of either porcelain baked on to metal, all-porcelain, or many of the new ceramic materials that have been developed. Porcelain is a material that best matches the color of your natural surrounding teeth.

The more traditional method to prepare a tooth for a crown usually requires two visits to our Attleboro dental office. At the first visit, Dr. Naiman may take a few X-rays to check the roots of the tooth and surrounding bone. Before the process of making a crown begins, Dr. Naiman will numb the tooth then file it down to make room for the dental crown. The amount of tooth removed depends on the type of crown you are getting. After reshaping the tooth, your dentist will use a paste or putty to make an impression of the tooth receiving the crown. A temporary crown is made, usually of acrylic, to cover and protect the tooth while the crown is being made. At the second visit to our Attleboro dental office, Dr. Naiman will remove the temporary crown and check the fit and color of the permanent crown. If everything is looks and fits perfectly, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the tooth and your new crown is permanently cemented in place.

At Advanced Dental Care, some of the most common issues that our Attleboro general dentist handles are related to gum disease. Gum disease occurs as a result of the buildup of bacteria like plaque and tartar inside the mouth. When the small pockets between your gums and teeth become filled with these bacteria they can get irritated and infected. If your gum disease is relatively mild, some professional cleanings and an improvement of your oral hygiene habits at home can solve the problem. For more advanced cases of periodontal disease, dentists usually have to use invasive surgical methods like pocket reduction surgery to clear away the harmful bacteria.

At Advanced Dental Care, our Attleboro general dentists like to use a different, more effective, and less invasive procedure to treat our patients for periodontal disease. We now use what is called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to precisely pinpoint the bacteria that needs to be eliminated, while leaving the healthy tissue in the gums behind to reattach. This incredible procedure has been meticulously tested and is the only laser protocol that is approved by the FDA. You should consider LANAP from our Attleboro general dentist over traditional treatments from other dentists for a number of reasons. Firstly, it involves much less pain for you. It also allows your gums to heal much faster than traditional surgeries because there is no cutting or stitches involved. It also is proven safe, and allows you to continue with your day normally right after the procedure. It is a highly effective procedure that will remove the bacteria that has infected your gums and will save your teeth from having to be extracted.

There are a few symptoms that typically indicate that you might be developing gum disease and that you should visit our Attleboro general dentist. If your gums are red, swollen, sensitive, or bleeding often, you should schedule an appointment at Advanced Dental Care right away, and we will recommend the proper treatment for you. You can reserve your appointment either by calling our office directly or by requesting your desired appointment time online. Our Attleboro general dentist and the rest of the staff here hope to see you soon.

Invisalign is a new orthodontic treatment system used by the cosmetic dentists at Advanced Dental Care in Attleboro, Massachusetts. This system straightens your teeth through the use of clear plastic molds. These invisible braces eliminate the metallic smile that is normally characteristics of orthodontics. Virtually invisible, Invisalign gradually reposition your teeth into the straighter and more attractive smile you’ve always wanted. Our Attleboro Orthodontist, Dr. Arkady Naiman highly recommends Invisalign.

Invisalign is a convenient alternative to traditional metal orthodontics with many advantages and few disadvantages. The entire Invisalign system was developed to create much-needed aesthetics to the field of orthodontics. Invisalign also allowed its wearers to brush and floss as normal. Additionally, there are no food and drink limitations. One main disadvantage to Invisalign is that some people with sensitive teeth and gums may feel some discomfort when they switch to a new retainer.
