Preventative Dentistry Mountain View

Preventative dentistry is the area of dentistry aimed to help people prevent oral disease and its further development. Preventative dentistry includes not just in-office dental care, but at-home treatments as well.

Some examples of at-home treatments include:

  • Regular brushing – the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends brushing two times a day and directly after meals, when possible.
  • Regular flossing – the ADA recommends flossing at least once a day.
  • Rinsing with anti-bacterial mouth wash – recommended after each brushing

Some examples of preventative dentistry you might receive in-office include:

  • Prophylaxis (cleaning of the teeth- removes built up calculus (plaque).
  • Inspection of the teeth, mouth, and gums- using visual and tactile exams, x-rays, and oral cancer screening, the overall health and presence of oral cancer can be revealed.

Restorative Dentistry Mountain View

The root canals of each tooth house nerve tissue and dental pulp, which contain blood vessels that provide nourishment. When this tissue becomes infected, a tooth may be in danger of dying. Without a root canal, patients may experience severe swelling, bone loss, inflammation, toothache, darkening of the tooth, gum soreness, and drainage problems.

A root canal procedure is usually recommended after other dental treatment options have been considered. It is a treatment that is used to save a tooth from extraction, an absolute last-resort option at our practice. Root canals are common in cases where large cavities have done too much damage to fix with a tooth-colored filling or dental crown. They are also used in cases where a tooth infection is simply too invasive to control.

Cosmetic Dentistry Mountain View

Dental Zone Mountain View offers state-of-the-art endodontic treatment to Mountain View dental patients who need a solution to severe tooth damage right away.

• After a thorough X-ray session and evaluation, we can begin the root canal procedure. The first step in a root canal is to numb the area of the mouth being treated with local anesthesia.

• A rubber dam is placed over the tooth to isolate the treatment area.

• Next, our team will drill a small hole in the wall of the tooth.

• The tissue inside the tooth root, the nerve and pulp, are gently extracted using root canal files.

• The canals are then cleaned well, flushed with a special sterilizing solution, and sealed off.

• During the next visit, the empty root canal is filled with a rubber compound called gutta percha.

• We will add an onlay or inlay to the tooth, followed by a dental crown to protect the enamel.

If you are searching for a comprehensive dental team that can take care of all your family’s dental needs, please contact us at Dental Zone Mountain View our root canal services are performed with a high level of quality and attention to detail.
