Fast Relief for Tooth Pain with Tysons Corner Endodontics at Avanti Dentistry

February 5, 2015

A severe toothache can be debilitating, distracting you from your work and keeping you from getting the restful sleep you need at night. The continuous, throbbing pain you feel in your tooth and your jaw may be caused by a root canal infection, a problem that will not go away on its own. To find quick toothache relief in an environment designed with your comfort in mind, trust the Tysons Corner endodontics specialists at Avanti Dentistry.

How Root Canal Therapy Helps Stop Tooth Pain

When an infection takes hold in the root of a tooth, the sensitive nerve endings and blood vessels located within send pain signals to the brain. This is an indication that something is wrong, and any recurring pain should be evaluated as soon as possible by your Tysons Corner endodontics experts. Neglecting to address the pain in a timely manner can result in extensive damage to the tooth and contributes to the risk of jaw bone deterioration.

Fortunately, root canal therapy can save your tooth before extraction becomes necessary. Our team will first ensure that you are completely comfortable, offering anesthetic and sedation as needed. The infected tissue from within the tooth’s canals will be removed and the resultant cavity will be thoroughly cleansed of any remaining bacteria. Then the area will be filled with a biocompatible material to protect against future infection, and a custom crown will be placed over the tooth to restore its structure. The entire process can typically be completed in a single visit, allowing you to move on with your day and your life, completely free of pain.

Get the Toothache Relief You Need

Don’t suffer through another day of pain caused by root canal infection. The experienced team at Avanti Dentistry is standing by and ready to help. Contact us today to schedule your visit, and see what a difference root canal therapy can make in your smile and in your daily life. With cutting-edge technology and a patient-centric approach, we happily offer a full range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services to patients in Tysons Corner, VA and the surrounding areas, including McLean, Vienna, Fairfax, Arlington, Washington, D.C., and beyond.

How to Avoid Costly Dental Work with Tysons Corner Endodontics

January 5, 2015

No one likes to spend inordinate amounts of money on healthcare, and the same goes for dentistry. There are, however, some cases in which you simply have no choice but to spend a substantial amount of money when it comes to your mouth, particularly if you find yourself with missing teeth. While today’s technology is making it easier and more affordable to replace missing teeth, the most cost-effective solution involves preventing tooth loss and extractions in the first place. With your trusted Tysons Corner endodontics specialists at Avanti Dentistry, you can preserve more of your natural smile for longer, allowing you to keep your teeth and your hard-earned money.

How Your Tysons Corner Endodontics Dentists Can Help

The most common cause of tooth loss in America is periodontal disease. The second most prominent cause is advanced tooth decay. At Avanti Dentistry, our team offers every service your smile needs to stay healthy, staving off periodontal disease and tooth decay for teeth that look as good as they feel. If, however, you do develop deep dental caries and a root canal infection, we can help with that, too. With our effective and gentle root canal therapy, we can eradicate infection from deep within your tooth before extraction becomes necessary.

If you suffer from periodontal disease, you are certainly not alone. In fact, approximately 80 percent of the American adult population is affected by some form of gum disease, though many aren’t aware of their condition. With periodontal therapy, we can help you halt the progression of this aggressive disease, thereby supporting the overall health of your smile.

Conveniently located in Tysons Corner, VA, our family-friendly dental practice is privileged to serve patients from throughout Vienna, Fairfax, Washington, D.C., Arlington, and beyond.

There is Nothing to Fear with Sedation Dentistry

September 20, 2014

It’s estimated that over 30% of the population avoids dental care due to fear. Today, there are a variety of methods available with Sedation Dentistry that can get you through a dental treatment without any pain or anxiety. If you suffer from apprehension brought on by a dental phobia make an appointment today with Avanti Dentistry. The dentists at Avanti Dentistry always provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for their patients. Sedation Dentistry services are available for patients in Tysons Corner, VA, Washington, D.C., McLean, Arlington, Fairfax, Vienna and surrounding areas.

Understanding Sedation Dentistry

It’s important to understand that sedation dentistry and anesthesia are two different procedures. General anesthesia, where patients are actually put to asleep, is typically only provided in the hospital. Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state, while maintaining consciousness. There are three methods the dentist may use to sedate you before a dental procedure:

  • Nitrous Oxide, sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” is one option the dentist may use to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It will not put you to sleep and you will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. You will be asked to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few minutes you will feel the effects of the nitrous oxide gas. You may feel light-headed or a tingling or heaviness in your arms and legs. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
  • IV Sedation gives the dentist optimal control of the amount of medication administered and allows them to readily increase or decrease your level of sedation as needed, quickly and comfortably. The dentist may require that you don’t eat or drink eight hours prior to the appointment. IV Sedation provides a faster onset of the sedation medications, meaning you’ll be able to feel the effects of the medication rather quickly. IV Sedation can benefit you if you have a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty sitting in a dental chair for long periods of time. You’ll be unaware of the sights, smells and sounds of the dental office. Patients usually remember little if anything of their appointment by the next day.
  • Oral Sedation is an increasingly popular treatment option for many people because it does not require the use of needles. The medications can be swallowed whole or crushed and administered by the dentist under the tongue. The type of sedative the dentist prescribes depends on the procedure being performed, the patient’s medical condition and any other drugs they take. In most cases the dentist uses a class of sedative medication called benzodiazepines. Examples of benzodiazepines include diazepam, lorazepam and triazolam. Sedative medication helps relax patients by slowing the action of the central nervous system. People remain aware of their surroundings, but are less responsive to external stimuli.

Sedation Dentistry in Tysons Corner, VA

In addition to sedation, the dentist will also administer a local anesthetic. This local anesthetic will temporarily block pain impulses from the affected teeth and gum tissue. However, this injection will only occur after you are already sedated and comfortable. The dentists at Avanti Dentistry offer Sedation Dentistry services that can help you overcome your dental phobias and get you started with the dental care you need. Make an appointment with Avanti dentistry today to experience the difference yourself. Avanti Dentistry serves all of Tysons Corner, VA, Washington, D.C., McLean, Arlington, Fairfax, Vienna and surrounding cities.

How Does Smoking Affect Your Oral Health?

September 12, 2014

You probably already know that smoking is bad for your health. But you may not know that it is also bad for your teeth and gums. Smoking can cause tooth decay, bone loss in the jaw, inflammation of the salivary glands and delayed healing from oral and other surgeries. Smokers are also more prone to oral cancers than nonsmokers. If you smoke, make an appointment with the experienced and gentle dentists of Avanti Dentistry. They can help you treat the effects of smoking and improve your overall oral health. Avanti Dentistry is conveniently located in Tysons Corner, VA, serving patients from nearby Washington, D.C., Arlington, Fairfax, McLean, Vienna.

Smoking and Gum Disease

Not only do tobacco products stain your teeth and give you bad breath, they can also lead to periodontal disease (gum disease). Smoking may be responsible for up to 75% of gum disease experienced by adults. If you choose to smoke, you are seven times more likely to develop gum disease than a nonsmoker. Smoking interferes with the normal function of gum tissue cells. This interference makes smokers vulnerable to infections and also impairs blood flow to the gums which may affect wound healing.

Smokeless Tobacco Products

Smokeless tobacco products like snuff and chewing tobacco are just as harmful as cigarettes to your teeth and gums. Smokeless tobacco can irritate your gum tissue, causing it to recede or pull away from your teeth. Once the gum tissue recedes, your tooth roots become exposed, creating an increased risk of tooth decay. Exposed roots are also more sensitive to hot and cold, making eating and drinking uncomfortable. Smokeless tobacco products contain at least twenty eight chemicals that have been shown to increase the risk of oral cancer and cancer of the throat and esophagus. Chewing tobacco actually contains higher levels of nicotine than cigarettes. In fact, one can of snuff contains more nicotine than sixty cigarettes.

Treatment for Smoking Related Oral Health Problems in Tysons Corner, VA

One of the cosmetic effects of smoking is staining on the teeth due to the nicotine and tar in tobacco. It can make the teeth yellow in a very short time, and heavy smokers often complain that their teeth are almost brown after years of smoking. If you use tobacco products, you should make an appointment with Avanti Dentistry today. The dentists at Avanti Dentistry can readily assess your oral health needs with their state of the art periodontal treatments. You can also take advantage of their teeth whitening promotions to combat the affects of tobacco staining. Avanti Dentistry proudly serves patients throughout Tysons Corner, VA, Vienna, McLean, Arlington, Fairfax, Washington, D.C., and the surrounding communities.

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
