Halitosis, otherwise known as bad breath, can take a toll on your social life and self-confidence. While bad breath might be the result of an underlying medical or digestive issue, a medication, or smoking, it is often due to oral health issues such as periodontal disease, dry mouth, or an infection. Bad breath can also be caused by something that you eat or drink.

At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we care about the oral health of all our patients and offer these tips to help keep your breath smelling fresh — and you feeling confident!

  1. Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth at least twice each day. Brushing after mealtimes will remove the food particles that can taint your breath. Rinse your mouth with water or a mouthwash to remove any lingering debris.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Halitosis is a common symptom of dry mouth. When your mouth is dry, it doesn’t have enough saliva to wash away food particles and bacteria. Correcting dry mouth can be as simple as staying hydrated.
  3. Avoid Food and Drink Triggers: Certain foods and drinks can make your breath smell bad, such as garlic, coffee, onions, and alcohol. The substances that impact your breath can enter your bloodstream and travel to your lungs, waiting for you to breathe out and spread their odors.
  4. Quit Smoking: Smoking is not only hazardous to your health, but it’s also bad for your breath. Foul-smelling smoke particles linger in the mouth, throat, and lungs long after you stub out a cigarette, which creates an unappealing stale aroma.
  5. See Your Dentist Regularly: Bad breath can also be a symptom of poor oral health. That’s why regular checkups are so important. Your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and diagnose any problems in your mouth that could easily turn into major ones if left untreated.

It happens to most of us at one time or another: a tooth cavity. These days, cavities are more prevalent than ever, affecting 82 percent of U.S. adults by the time they’re 34. In fact, tooth decay — the condition that causes cavities — is the single most chronic childhood disease in the nation. Realities like these underscore the importance of patient education and regular checkups for preventing tooth decay. At Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we are experienced and trained in all aspects of oral health, providing treatment as well as information on the best ways for you to maintain healthy teeth and gums at any age.

For best results, the American Dental Association encourages patients to visit their dentist at least twice a year for routine checkups and professional teeth cleanings. Monitoring the teeth, gums, and jaws enables your dentist to not only prevent, but to spot dental conditions in their earliest stages when they are most treatable. The accumulation of plaque is responsible for dental decay that can lead to extensive damage if left untreated. That’s why regular visits to our office are needed over and above your at-home oral care routine. We’ll provide you with professional cleanings to remove any hardened plaque you may have missed and give you the tools you need to brush and floss correctly. For children visiting us for preventive care, we provide fluoride treatments as well as dental sealants, each safe and effective measures for shielding and strengthening teeth against acid erosion.

Life is full of surprises, and occasionally not always for the better. That is why if you experience unexpected dental pain, sustain an injury to the mouth or jaws, or if you break a dental appliance, having the name of a reliable and skilled dentist on hand is important.

At Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of services for all types of dental emergencies and are well equipped to address your needs. Providing skilled and compassionate care, we’ll alleviate the pain, stress, and general confusion of your dental emergency, and put you back on the road to oral health.

Perhaps the most common reason patients seek emergency treatment is because of a toothache. The pain experienced by a toothache can be either odontogenic pain, which stems from the nervous tissue within the tooth itself, or non-odontogenic pain, which arises from the surrounding face, jaw, or head. When you schedule an emergency appointment us for a toothache, you can rest assured that we will precisely determine the underlying source of your discomfort and develop the most appropriate course of action to restore your oral health and function. Left untreated, a toothache can get worse and lead to further damage to the tooth, as well as possibly even compromise the long-term prognosis for the tooth and the surrounding tissues. It can even affect your overall well-being!

If a dental emergency should arise, do not hesitate to call us at Crowns Now Family Dentistry for an urgent appointment. We will prioritize your condition and give you the timely treatment you deserve. Your care and comfort are top priorities with us. From the moment you walk into our office, we’ll do our best to put your mind at ease by taking the time to address your every concern and answer your questions about all your options in care.

Of course, you feel better when you smile; everyone does. But what you may not realize is how much this expression actually benefits your overall health. According to researchers, a smile not only lifts your mood, but it also lowers your stress level, reduces your blood pressure, and gives your immune system a boost. Naturally, when you feel confident about the appearance of your teeth, it makes it easier to share your smile with the world. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we offer an extensive selection of cosmetic dental services to give you a smile you’ve always wanted.

We recommend that you call our office right away if you experience a dental injury, a toothache or if you’ve broken your dental prosthesis.

If you are suffering from tooth loss, we invite you to our office for a consultation as to how you can rebuild a complete and beautiful smile. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we provide patients with the highest quality treatment options and achieve outstanding results of care. Making a comprehensive range of advanced services available to you and your loved ones, we offer everything from the finest quality custom bridgework, dentures, and dental implants, to a state-of-the-art selection of restorative and cosmetic treatments for your smile.

For a method of tooth replacement that comes closest to recreating the performance, appearance and feel of your natural smile, ask about our dental implants.  Unlike traditional prostheses, dental implants behave in much the same way as the roots of your own teeth. Designed as a small, biocompatible surgical post that is inserted into the jaw, a dental implant fuses directly with the bone as it heals through a process known as osseointegration. By integrating with the surrounding bone, dental implants are able to provide continuing stimulation to the surrounding region, just like the roots of your natural teeth. This ongoing stimulation helps to preserve the bone mass that supports the natural contours of your face. When you look above the gumline, the part of the dental implant that extending through the tissue later used after healing is complete is use to support either a custom crown, fixed bridge, or to provide some measure of added stability for overdentures. Also, depending on your unique needs, dental implants can even be placed in strategic points along the jaw to secure a customized bridge to replace all of the upper or lower teeth.

At our practice, we pride ourselves on our ability to listen and treat our patients with compassion. As your trusted partner in care, our office will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan suitable for your comfort level, goals, and budget.

At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we never want you to feel self-conscious about your smile, and we offer leading-edge cosmetic solutions to greatly enhance the look and feel of your pearly whites.

Porcelain veneers can mask dental imperfections to create a more radiant, harmonious set of teeth. Our team will customize your treatment plan to accommodate your individual needs, making your smile makeover easy and stress-free.

Enhancing the look of your smile with veneers can improve your self-image and overall outlook on life. Before we begin treatment, you’ll have the chance to sit down with our dentist for a smile makeover consultation, to discuss your treatment goals and describe your ideal smile. We’ll also perform a comprehensive examination to determine if you’re a candidate for veneers or if a different course of cosmetic care would achieve better results. We may recommend veneers if your teeth are chipped, misaligned, too small, or deeply discolored.

During the veneer process, our dentist will design your customized veneers in order to achieve a precise fit and optimal aesthetic results. Our laboratory will fabricate your veneers using durable, lightweight dental grade porcelain. The ultra-thin veneers blend seamlessly with your underlying tooth structure, recreating the translucency of healthy tooth enamel to give your smile a natural looking sparkle. Caring for your veneers involves the same oral hygiene routine as your natural teeth. By brushing, flossing and visiting our office for regular checkups, you can enjoy your veneers for years to come.

At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our skilled and experienced dentist maintains a position at the forefront of the latest advances in care to provide patients with the highest quality services. Today, it’s no longer necessary to make multiple trips to the dentist for teeth that require restoration with a full coverage crown. Attractive, durable, and long-lasting ceramic crowns can now be fabricated in just a single visit!

When the structural integrity of a tooth becomes compromised by injury of decay, a full coverage crown to restore its appearance and function is often required. With conventional approaches to care, the process of fabricating a crown typically takes two to three visits. Multiple trips are necessary because this method involves several separate and distinct steps. First, the tooth gets prepared, an impression is taken, and then a temporary crown is placed over the tooth until the permanent restoration comes back from the dental lab. While this approach to care is still widely used today and offers excellent treatment outcomes, thanks to advances in CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), treatment time can be effectively reduced to a single visit with the same high-quality results.

Thanks to same day crowns, we can prepare your tooth, optically scan it, virtually design your crown and then send all of the specs to a chairside milling machine to fabricate your ceramic crown all while you wait. That’s right, all this in one visit!  Messy impressions, dental temporaries, and waiting for lab work to be returned have all been eliminated. With same day crowns, we can restore your smile more quickly, comfortably, and conveniently. What’s more, your new crown is fabricated from the highest grade of dental ceramics to give you a smile that is naturally beautiful, durable, and long-lasting.

If you’re searching for a dental practice that gives top priority to your comfort as well as your oral health, the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry offers the best of both worlds. Our experienced dental professionals provide patient-oriented care using the latest technology, techniques and materials. We provide a comprehensive range of dental services, from routine checkups to the most advanced restorative and cosmetic treatments to sedation dentistry.

Studies estimate that as many as much as 15 percent of adults across the nation avoid seeking out the dental care they need due to fears or misconceptions about their treatment. If you suffer from significant dental anxiety or phobia, dental sedation may be right for you. Prior to prescribing sedation, we will carefully review your medical records to ensure the process will be safe for you. Dental sedation is always closely monitored by our professional team and has proven to be a highly effective method for alleviating anxiety and making patients feel more comfortable during treatment. Dental sedation can be administered in different forms, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedatives, and IV sedation (intravenous). As skilled providers of care, we’ll explain the options we provide and what type of sedation best suits your needs.

Dentistry is changing and our office is changing along with it to ensure your comfort and ease throughout every step in care. We emphasize communication and will keep you well-informed as to what to expect before, during and after your treatment. If you have anxiety about treatment and would like to learn more about dental sedation, we welcome the opportunity to address your questions and concerns.

Your trusted partner in care

If you’ve been putting off dental treatment out of fear, the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry seeks to put your mind at ease. Our experienced team is committed to excellence, providing gentle and compassionate dental care. To schedule your next appointment and talk to us about dental treatment with the option of sedation, give us a call today.

So, you’ve lost a tooth. Now what to do? Anybody who has experienced the loss of a tooth whether due to injury, decay, or disease can tell you that it is a bit of a shock realizing there’s a gap in their mouth that not only looks strange, but feels strange too.

Take heart: a dental implant is one of the most popular and effective ways for you to reestablish a complete and beautiful smile. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our experienced staff of professionals offers state-of-the-art care and will custom fit your dental implant to give you a fully restored and dazzling smile.

Dental implants offer a number of benefits to both your dental and overall health. Since a dental implant acts in much the same way as the root of your natural tooth, once it becomes fully integrated into the surrounding jawbone, it maintains bone structure, keeps adjacent teeth from occupying the missing space, and helps to preserve your normal facial contours. The biggest benefit of all is that dental implants come the closest — out of all the teeth replacement options available today — to replicating the natural look, feel, and function of natural teeth. By taking advantage of this advanced technology at our offices, you are restoring so much more than your teeth—you are renewing your confidence in your smile!

At Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services to meet the needs of every member of your family. Our reputation for excellence is based on providing experienced and compassionate care with an unparalleled level of skill to give our patients the very best treatment results.
