Dental cleanings performed by our dental hygienists are a form of preventative maintenance for your teeth. Here at Glendale Premier Dental Center we recommend that our patients receive regular teeth cleaning every six months in order to maintain the health of their teeth.
Missing teeth not only affect your smile, but how you feel about yourself, and even your health.
Dental implants are an option for those wanting a permanent solution that feels more natural.  The implant process takes place over the course of 3-6 months and involves fusing the implant to the jawbone.  It is this integration with the jawbone that makes the implant feel so natural, and unlike a bridge, no additional teeth need to be altered or affected with an implant.  Though it takes several months for the implant to heal, a temporary crown can be placed on the implant, which will allow for normal eating, and will also maintain the aesthetics of your smile.  Once the implant is healed, the new tooth, or restoration, is attached to it.
Talk to us if you’re considering dental implants.  Candidates for implants must have healthy gums and an adequate bone to support the implant.
AVOID IMPLANT FAILURE:
Cleaning your dental implants is important to prevent bacterial biofilm (Plaque) build-up, and to avoid gum disease around the dental implants.  At Glendale Premier Dental Center we have the technology to see under your gums, inspect plaque build-up, help avoid gum disease, and be able to suggest necessary treatments.

BRIDGE
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is generally attached to two teeth on each side of the missing tooth. They are most commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be permanent or removable. If a patient has missing teeth, this can cause several problems that bridges can help prevent, such as a bad bite, gum disease, and tooth decay. Also, bridges can improve your smile, giving you a beautiful appearance that can last up to ten years or more with the correct care.
Crowns
There are different factors that may contribute to erosion, cracking and breaking of your teeth, such as age, fillings or tooth decay. We are pleased to offer our patients CEREC restoration services, a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched, and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our practice. From simple fillings to full crowns to veneers, CEREC delivers the results you need in a single appointment.
Maryland Bridge
The Maryland Bridge replaces mostly single tooth compared to other conventional bridgework. The restoration enables the dental practitioner to splint or replace the missing teeth, with minimal tooth modification.
The practitioner will review each patient case and recommend the necessary bridgework.

Night Guard
Night Guard for Teeth Grinding
If you grind your teeth for prolonged time it may damage your teeth, become painful, and even become hazardous to your dental health. To protect your teeth, a customized night guard may be recommended which will alleviate the pain and damage caused by habitual grinding, clenching and bruxing of the teeth.

Symptoms of Chronic (Habitual) Grinding:

Periodontics / Gum Disease
Periodontists specialize in gum and bone disease.  There are two levels of infection: Gingivitis, and the more serious Periodontitis. Both diseases are caused by plaque (formed by bacteria) and tartar (a hardened form of plaque caused by the minerals in saliva) on the teeth.
Gingivitis is a bacterial inflammation of the gums, near the surface. Gingivitis is an uncomfortable disease that can result in swollen, painful gums which bleed and itch.  Good oral hygiene, such as daily brushing and flossing and regular dental cleanings and exams, will help prevent against gingivitis, and with visits to the dentist and an improvement in oral hygiene, gingivitis will usually go away.  But if gingivitis is not properly taken care of, it can become the more serious, periodontitis.
Periodontitis involves irreversible changes to the supporting structures of the teeth. It is associated with bone loss, pocketing around the teeth, and in severe cases loosening of the teeth and even tooth loss.  Sometimes gums with periodontitis look normal because the inflammation is deep under the gums and not near the surface the way it is in gingivitis.  Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults.
