At Escala Family Dentistry we recommend professional hygiene visits twice per year. We will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The hygienists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we're here to help you. If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral health care routine or the products you use at home.
A more attractive smile will enhance your overall appearance and your outlook on life. Dr. Escala delivers advanced esthetic therapies to brighten, reshape, and revitalize teeth. Many procedures require only a single office visit. Our patients rave about their new smiles and tell us that cosmetic dentistry positively impacted their relationships, professional success, and confidence.
Crowns & Bridges
If you have a severely worn, badly decayed, or cracked tooth, a crown will restore structural integrity to get you smiling again! At Escala Family Dentistry, Dr. Escala designs and places white, custom crowns that look natural, feel terrific, and provide long-lasting protection.
Crowns completely cover teeth to restore shape and size. They provide a barrier against decay and safeguard a tooth from further injury. Dr. Escala creates all-white crowns that blend seamlessly with natural teeth.
Is your smile the best it can be? Stains, chips, gaps, and other flaws can make you self-conscious of your appearance. At Escala Family Dentistry, Dr. Escala apply porcelain veneers and Lumineers to erase dental imperfections. You'll look and feel terrific with a personalized, one-of-a-kind smile!
Porcelain Veneers - Handcrafted exclusively for your smile, ultrathin layers of fine dental porcelain cover teeth to conceal imperfections. The porcelain looks and feels completely natural and never stains. Eat and drink what you like – your smile will look fantastic!
A complete smile is an essential element of optimal long-term health. Missing teeth negatively impact your smile's appearance and can decrease quality of life. Many patients are surprised to learn that people with missing teeth don't live as long as those with a complete, healthy smile. To give you the strong, beautiful smile that you deserve, Dr. Escala designs and fist durable, natural-looking dentures and partials.
Ouch! Dental pain is a sign that you may have a cavity. Decay only worsens if left untreated and can result in significant damage to your smile. Dr. Escala applies white, composite-resin fillings to restore teeth marred by decay and give patients strong, healthy smiles.
If you have a cavity, we'll gently prepare your tooth, then apply durable composite resin tinted to match your existing smile. We can also replace your dark, metal fillings with all-white, composite resin ones. White fillings form a seamless bond with teeth and provide lasting strength and protection against decay. Plus, they look great!
Pulling teeth, as the saying goes, does not have to be a drawn-out, negative experience. We can perform tooth extractions quickly and with minimal discomfort to treat a host of dental conditions, including advanced gum disease. Patients suffering from broken, cracked, and/or excessively decayed or damaged teeth (that aren't good candidates for the alternative treatment--root canal) will benefit from this often simple and straightforward procedure.
Root Canal Treatments
Your teeth contain several layers: the outer protective enamel, a secondary layer of sensitive dentin, and an inner pulp that contains components commonly referred to as the "nerve" of the tooth. Each pulp chamber branches off, forming canals that lead toward the tooth root tip. These infamous root canals provide a means for the tooth to absorb what it needs from the blood and get rid of toxins or other unnecessary materials via the blood stream.
A deep cavity, traumatic injury, or tooth fracture can make the canal susceptible to bacterial infection, which can kill the pulp, stimulate increased blood flow, and create pressure within the tooth. This can cause severe tooth pain and may initiate bone degeneration, tooth loss, and even more acute pain. If you see a dentist in the earliest stages of this condition, the tooth may be saved with a root canal. Otherwise, it should be extracted and replaced with a prosthetic.
A dental sealant is a kind of protective coating, which is made up of tinted or transparent plastic. It is painted onto the chewing areas of the back teeth (both premolars and molars), where the possibility of cavity formation is more in comparison to other regions of the teeth.
Premolars and molars have pits and fissures in them, where the food particles normally get stuck. Some of the fissures present on the surface are so deep that the bristles of the toothbrush are unable to reach them. These holes and gaps on the surface of the teeth provide an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive and generate cavities. The function of these dental sealants is to prevent the happening of the same. The dentists put a thin cover of dental sealant over these pits and fissures and food cannot accumulate in them.
Up to 80 percent of the population unknowingly has some form of gum disease. Characterized by a persistent bacterial infection surrounding one tooth or several teeth, gum disease causes little discomfort and produces few obvious symptoms in the early stages. When periodontal disease is not treated, it will spread and compromise gums, teeth, bone, and it can lead to heart disease and strokes, as well as diabetes and pregnancy complications.
Did you know, research shows that people with missing teeth don't live as long as those with full smiles? Losing teeth can also make you feel embarrassed and self-conscious about your appearance. With implant dentistry, Dr. Escala can repair your smile comfortably and restore your optimal dental health with natural looking restorations. If you are missing one or more teeth or even wear a full or partial denture, dental implants may represent the best solution for a strong, attractive smile.
Dental implants are small, biocompatible titanium posts placed below the gum, in the jaw, to replace missing teeth roots. Once your mouth heals, the implant post creates a lifelike emergence from your gums, just like your natural teeth. Of all the dental technology available, dental implants provide the closest replacement option to your natural teeth, so patients can smile without embarrassment and eat with confidence.
