Dentistry Q & A

Why do I need dentistry care?

Many chronic health conditions, including heart disease, are linked to poor oral health and oral infections. But routine dental care services, including twice-a-year exams and cleanings, can prevent many of the serious issues that occur. Aside from preventive purposes, dentistry is important to:

  • Treat decay and abscesses
  • Detect and treat oral cancer
  • Treat minor to severe gum disease
  • Enhance the appearance of your smile
  • Repair damaged, broken, or knocked-out teeth
  • Resolve temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD)

Dentistry treatments can also restore the function of your teeth. For example, if you have missing teeth, your dentist can design a plan to replace them, so you can bite, chew, and speak without any problems. 

What can I expect during a dentistry appointment?

Hermosa Medical and Diagnostic Center provides on-site digital dental imaging, which helps your dentist evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. After gathering images, your dentist educates you about your oral health and talks with you about any concerns you may have.

If you’re due for a cleaning, your hygienist can provide this service and counsel you about proper oral health care at home. Your dentist also discusses any treatments you may need, so you can collaborate and design a customized dental treatment plan. 

Which type of dental treatments are available?

Hermosa Medical and Diagnostic Center dentists provide a host of modern dental treatments. Depending on your needs, your dentist may recommend any of the following treatments:

  • Scaling and root planing 
  • Custom mouthguard
  • Crowns or bridges

  • Extraction
