Mother Theresa once said that peace begins with a smile. How do you feel about your smile? Are you at peace with it? If you think there is room for improvement, talk to us about cosmetic dentistry options at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Cosmetic dentistry refers to a range of procedures we use to create positive changes to your teeth and smile. The procedures are always done with your dental health in mind; it never diminishes the function of your teeth.

Even one small cosmetic dentistry procedure can make a big difference in your smile; several can be quite dramatic, what we call a smile makeover. The procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening that surpasses any whitening product you can buy at the store
  • Porcelain veneers that mask chips, cracks, gaps, and other flaws
  • Dental implants that replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing

Improve Your Smile for Yourself (And Those That Look at You)

Dental Implants Dentures

long-term tooth replacement solution Phoenix

Losing one or more of your natural teeth impacts your smile, and your ability to bite and chew. But with dental implants from Harris Dental in Phoenix, you can regain your smile and the ability to eat just about anything.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are anchored into your jaw. They are solid foundations for artificial teeth. Because they are physically attached to your jaw,  they also prevent the loss of bone that usually accompanies tooth loss.

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, a conventional dental bridge or dentures are certainly better than nothing. But because they are not solidly anchored to your jaw, they do not provide full biting and chewing function. This is, of course, a major drawback.

This is what makes dental implants so brilliant. They don’t look any different than natural teeth, and better still, they feel and function the same. Once the implants are in place and the jaw has fully healed, most patients report full chewing power. That means they can enjoy just about any food they choose.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix we provide single-tooth dental implants and implant-supported dentures. They look great! People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa trust us with their dental health! Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

The Harris Dental Guide To Preventing Gum Disease

Uncategorized

gum disease Phoenix

Here is a statistic that should make everyone sit up and take notice: nearly half of all Americans over the age of thirty have some form of gum disease. That works out to about sixty-five million people. Gum disease treatment is available at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Gum disease is usually the result of poor brushing and flossing habits. When you don’t brush and floss on a regular basis, there is a build-up of plaque, which hardens into a substance called tartar. That’s why we recommend our patients brush and floss twice a day. It’s the best way to prevent plaque from building up.

No amount of brushing and flossing will remove tartar from your teeth. It takes a professional cleaning to remove it, which is why we want to see our patients twice a year.

Risk factors for developing gum disease include:

  • Smoking, which is the most significant
  • Diabetes
  • Genetics
  • Certain illnesses, like AIDS, and their medication
  • Medication that reduces the flow of saliva

The symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Chronic bad breath
    Painful chewing
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums

The type of treatment a patient gets for gum disease depends on the extent of the condition. Part of the treatment might include behavioral changes, like giving up smoking. And it is essential that the patient adopts good daily dental care.

The plain truth is that anyone can get gum disease. But there is hope; the earlier it is detected, the sooner treatment can begin. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa come to Harris Dental in Phoenix for general dentistry and much more. Call for an appointment today!

Preventing Tooth Decay

Dental health General Dentistry

Preventing Tooth Decay in Arizona

Tooth decay remains the most important issue in dental health, and it affects people of all ages. At Harris Dental in Phoenix we are committed to preventing tooth decay in our patients.

It can be an uphill battle sometimes. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria. It merges with plaque and acids to break down the enamel on your teeth. The tiny holes that can† result are what we call cavities.

The Sugar Factor

Tooth decay is usually a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky or sugary foods are consumed and allowed to remain on the teeth, it can result in tooth decay.

To help prevent it, limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. A good oral hygiene strategy is advised, and that means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix we are committed to the dental health of each patient. Services include complete general dentistry. Patients from xxx also come to us for cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
