Verandah dentist office
At Riverdale Dental Associates, our Verandah dental office performs fillings for patients who need them. Filings are done when there are cavities present within the mouth, and which cause a hole that needs to be filled up. Fillings are usually made from composite materials, and once we apply them to the hole the cavity makes, the pain should lessen.
Dr. Correa is a graduate of the University of Florida and speaks English, Portuguese and Spanish. Born and raised in Brazil, he earned a dental degree there before moving to America. He started Riverdale Dental Associates 8 years ago and has enjoyed giving patients the best in quality dental care and will continue to do so for many years to come. When coming in for your fillings at our Verandah dental office, we want you to be relaxed and happy. If there’s anything whatsoever that you need before your appointment, don’t hesitate to ask us. Fillings are quick and easy and done right in our offices in a timely manner. They help to fill the hole that cavities make in teeth, and ease the pain the cavity is causing. Symptoms usually include sensitivity to hot and cold, pain, swelling and redness.
Teeth cleaning in Verandah
Getting our teeth cleaning in Verandah is essential for both your teeth and your gums, and can help prevent the need for periodontal cleanings, which are restored to when the effects of advanced gum disease make it the most effective method. Here at Riverdale Dental Associates, we’re committed to proactive dental and periodontal care.
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. Symptoms tend to be mild, such as irritation and redness of the gums. You may not even realize that there is any reason to be concerned. And the good news is that with our teeth cleaning in Verandah, the signs of gingivitis can typically be reversed, and the progress of gum disease halted entirely. Sometimes a second cleaning is necessary for more stubborn cases. The bad news is that if you don’t come in for twice-yearly dental cleanings (which is another way of saying teeth cleanings), gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, the advanced stage. Here, the symptoms become highly noticeable, and more concerning. Among them are receding gums, bleeding when you brush, and persistent bad breath. More serious is the potential erosion of gum and bone tissue, which can then cause your teeth to become loose. In the worst case, you could end up losing teeth. It is when gum disease is advanced that our teeth cleaning in Verandah is no longer effective. Instead, you will require a periodontal cleaning, which is similar but goes much deeper. In fact, it goes down to the roots to get at the offending plaque and tartar. With that, your gums can begin to heal. It is vital not to ignore the symptoms you have. The more quickly you act, the more likely you will have a successful result.
