Can You Name 9 Dental Specialties?

Most people probably know how a pediatric dentist differs from an orthodontist. But you may not know that there are multiple dental specialties. This post from Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ looks at the disciplines within dentistry.

Endodontics: This area focuses on dental pulp and periradicular tissues. If you need a root canal, you may require the services of an endodontist.

Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics: If you want to straighten your teeth, you need an orthodontist. Dentofacial orthopedic specialists correct facial deformities using many of the same types of appliances used in teeth straightening therapy.

Pediatric Dentistry: Pediatric dentists provide dental care for infants, children and teenagers.

Periodontics: This is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the tissues around the teeth – the gums, that is.

Prosthodontics: Prosthodontists provide restorative dental procedures including dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures. They also perform cosmetic dental treatments.

Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: This specialty concerns diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions.

Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: Oral and maxillofacial radiologists analyze radiographic images (x-rays) for issues of the maxillofacial area.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: Oral surgeons perform surgery on the teeth, jaw, face, and gums. These include facial reconstruction, cleft lip and palate correction, bone grafting, dental implants, and impacted teeth.

Dental Public Health: This discipline focuses on the prevention and treatment of dental diseases, and promoting dental health through community effort.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ we offer sleep apnea treatment, wisdom teeth removal, and implants. We’ve also provided referrals to patients from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa to specialists throughout the area. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

What Can Fluoride Do For You?

This post from Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ focuses on fluoride. What is it, exactly, and why is it so good for your dental health?

The Miracle Mineral

Fluoride is a mineral, plain and simple. It is found in different foods as well as in water. Many cities adjust the fluoride content of their municipal water.

Fluoride is also added to dental care products. This makes it possible for you to apply fluoride to your teeth when you brush or use mouth rinses.

And why would you want to put fluoride on your teeth? Because it helps to prevent tooth decay, of course! Fluoride does this by giving the teeth stronger resistance against the acid attacks brought on by plaque bacteria as well as sugar in the mouth.

Essential for Young Teeth

Fluoride is especially important for children. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in. Fluoride exposure is extremely helpful for creating a strong foundation for lifelong oral health.

But fluoride is good for adult teeth, too! In addition to the oral care products mentioned previously, you can get a boost of this miracle mineral during routine dental cleanings.

Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ is as full-service practice offering complete general dentistry. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa also come to our office for dental implants, and much more. Contact us today!

Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately?

Scottsdale Extreme Smile Makeover

Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ would be a very different place if it weren’t for the skilled dental assistants who work here.

In this post, we would like to highlight the importance of these specialists who are often not given the credit they deserve. Dental assistants†not only make your dental appointment more pleasant, they make it effective, efficient, and safe.

You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants. During care, the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, taking x-rays, holding devices, and recording essential information.

We think most people would agree that anyone who helps shorten their time in the dental chair deserves recognition!

Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other vital duties handled by dental assistants. What would we do without them?

At Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ we are committed to excellence in dentistry, but we couldn’t do it without our dental assistants. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!

Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

Mesa cosmetic smile makeover

In this post from Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ, we begin with something we’d classify as Murphy’s Law: one of those things that’s bound to happen.

You leave the house on a pressing errand, looking completely disheveled. Inevitably, you bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your ill-fitting sweatpants and stained T-shirt?

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost morale for most people. But do you know what others notice first? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Study after study has shown that sensational teeth and eyes always capture attention.

Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But beautiful smiles are within reach, because we can work miracles with cosmetic dentistry. We can turn ordinary smiles into stunning first-impressions.
