What We Do For Cowards
The fear of pain in the course of dental treatment has caused millions of people to avoid regular visits. Hardly a dentist has not heard the expression, "I'd rather have a baby than a root canal." This paradoxical attitude results in unnecessary dental neglect, worsening of dental conditions, and future pain and expense. It is both unfortunate and preventable. There are many approaches to modern dentistry that may significantly reduce apprehension and anxiety before and during dental procedures.
The use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), sedatives, stereo headphones, topical anesthetics and hypnosis are but a few methods of calming most dental phobics. In exceptional cases, a general anesthetic may be indicated to provide a less emotionally debilitating dental experience. Certainly, the most effective practice of managing dental apprehension is communication. Rather than tightly grip the armrests, convey your concerns to us prior to treatment. Identify what approaches in the past have relieved the stress of an unpleasant dental visit and those that create trauma. We are well trained in the psychology of care and comfort.
Oral Health Care
Root Canal Moorpark
Root Canal therapy is a restorative technique that involves the cleaning of the infected nerve area and filling the root canal space. When a tooth is fractured, the health of the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth) can be compromised. Any decay in the pulp can lead to further decline in the overall health of the damaged tooth. Persistent problems including sensitivity to hot or cold is usually an indication of declining tooth health. Root canal treatment usually lasts a lifetime, although from time to time, a tooth may have to be retreated due to new infections.
A tooth extraction can become necessary for many reasons. Dr. Canale will be able to help you with the tooth extraction while helping you to be as relaxed and as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
Dentures are removable artificial dental appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are made to look like your natural teeth. There are two types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth and partial dentures are used when some of the natural teeth remain. Partial dentures fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and also prevent other teeth from shifting.
Procedures for Periodontal Health Moorpark
Periodontal Therapy is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease slowly attacks and destroys the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. Periodontal disease is caused by plaque, sticky substance that forms on teeth at the gum line and if not removed turns into calculus. If plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone.
The most common signs of periodontal disease are red, swollen and bleeding gums. If a periodontal disease is not treated in a timely manner, it can result in tooth loss. Good oral hygiene, good nutrition and regular dental visits can help reduce your risk of getting any periodontal disease.
Porcelain Veneers Moorpark
Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth.
White (Composite) Fillings Moorpark
White fillings are just as durable as they are attractive! Made of composite resin, white fillings match the natural color of your teeth and are an excellent option for small to mid-sized cavities. White fillings are strong, stain-resistant and require less removal of your tooth structure than amalgam fillings.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding Moorpark
Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped teeth, stained teeth and gapped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. And it's fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.
Porcelain Crowns And Bridges Moorpark
Porcelain dental crowns match the natural color of your teeth and are virtually undetectable by the naked eye. And because they're metal-free, porcelain dental crowns are an excellent option for patients with metal allergies. Best of all, porcelain crowns don't just look beautiful – they're long-lasting, too!
