By being conscious and scheduling yearly preventative appointments, you can reduce your risk of contributing to systemic medical issues like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
For some, it has been a few years since they have had a dental checkup. Don’t worry! You are in good hands with our caring, gentle, and thorough hygiene team.
Our hygiene team will walk you through each step of your evaluation to make sure you are informed and comfortable. You will be asked to share any concerns or changes you may have noticed, such as tooth discoloration, bad breath, sensitivity to hot and cold, or bleeding during brushing or flossing. The team will then go over the things that are relevant to you, including:
If you are as interested in your overall health, come see us at Wagner Dental for an appointment with our dedicated team.
Our dental team can provide you with the most complete teeth cleaning around, and the tools, tips, and tricks in order to keep your teeth healthy and strong. At Wagner Dental, we love to see your pearly whites shine, but we need your help in order to keep the foundation of your oral health sturdy with excellent care at home.
Your teeth share your story with us. With daily oral hygiene, you can continue to smile big for years to come. Your oral health is in the palm of your hands, and we at Wagner Dental want to provide you with ways to only improve that dental care more.
We know it can be difficult to visit the dentist, especially if it has been a while since your last visit. Please know that we understand and just want to give you the best service possible. So make sure to visit your Wagner Dental staff twice each year in order to ensure excellent oral health.
In order to keep the foundation of your oral health strong, follow these tips so your teeth can stay strong and healthy without fail:
Remember when metal fillings crowded your mouth and expanded as you aged? No longer are fillings so obstructive in our mouths, as modern dentistry has brought us into more stable, secure tooth-colored fillings. At Wagner Dental, we are no longer using metal fillings that once contained traces of toxic mercury–we use composite materials instead to protect your teeth from cavities.
Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among American children and affects more adults than we realize. Tooth decay is the result of sugar and plaque remaining on the teeth that turns into acid that eventually breaks down the tooth enamel. If left untreated, it can cause toothaches, infections, and even tooth loss. Our oral health doesn’t just affect the mouth, but the entire body.
The best way to prevent tooth decay is to minimize sugary and acidic foods and beverages from our diets, maintain a strict oral hygiene routine, and remember to schedule regular visits to Wagner Dental in Las Vegas. We want to help keep your natural teeth healthy for life, so call us today with any more questions!
In order to keep your body and your mind healthy, you must also keep your smile in the best functional shape too! Evidence shows that oral health correlates with our overall health too. Our mouths act as a gateway for any infection or disease to enter into our body, and if left untreated, there can be systemic health and internal organ problems.
At Wagner Dental we pride ourselves on keeping your mouth clean, healthy and confident! In order to keep that oral health strong, we recommend our patients have a plan for how to keep their bodies healthy too! Keeping up with eating a healthy, balanced diet (minimizing sugar and acidity), brushing and flossing regularly, and scheduling regular visits to Wagner Dental helps keep your oral health on the right track.
We know that root canals have earned a bad rap over the years, but truthfully, root canals are a fairly routine and painless procedure thanks to modern dentistry. If you have a tooth that is infected within the tooth pulp or tooth root, it may be time to consider a root canal. If you’re nervous about the pain and the recovery from a root canal procedure, we use antibiotics and anesthesia on a case by case basis depending on your unique situation.
So what should you expect at a root canal? At Wagner, we want to make sure you are completely comfortable before we go into the procedure. After you are completely sure you know what will happen, we will go in and remove the infection. Then we sterilize and fill the chamber to prevent further infection, and seal the tooth with a crown. See, that wasn’t so bad, was it?
