Read on to learn more about ways we can improve your smile.

Test Your Knowledge About Dental Crowns

Did we recommend a dental crown for you or a loved one during your last visit, but you have been hesitant to schedule your appointment? We know that procedures you may be unfamiliar with can leave you feeling a little nervous or anxious. We want to do all we can to make you feel more comfortable. A dental crown is one of the most common dental treatments we perform daily. It can be used in conjunction with other procedures and leaves patients feeling happy with their results. Since this treatment is so popular, we feel it is important for patients to know about it, even if they don’t need it at this time. Read on to learn more about dental crowns and why we may recommend this treatment.

How A Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth

At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we are passionate about saving our patients’ teeth. One way we do this is with a root canal. Patients often become a bit nervous when they learn they need this treatment. Unfortunately, many movies and television shows have given this treatment a bad reputation. We want to take a few moments to explain more about this treatment and why it can be the difference between saving or extracting your tooth.

Restorative Dentistry Can Change Your Life

At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we strive to help our patients achieve optimum oral health. Unfortunately, it can be more challenging for some patients to achieve this due to the state of their teeth and gums. We see many patients who need some TLC with their oral health. Some of our patients have experienced trauma to the mouth or severe decay and may have issues such as chipped, cracked, broken, or missing teeth. If this sounds like you or a loved one, there is no time like the present to improve your smile. We offer a number of restorative dentistry treatments that can improve any problem you may have with your mouth.

Enjoy A Relaxing Dental Experience With Sedation Dentistry

Do you experience dental nerves and anxiety, and is it keeping you from visiting our office for routine examinations or a needed treatment? Experiencing dental nerves and anxiety is more common than you may realize. Millions of Americans have some form of dental anxiety, which keeps them from receiving the care and treatment needed for optimum oral health. Unfortunately, when you continue to avoid routine examinations and treatments, it can lead to a never-ending cycle of dental problems, emergencies and lengthy treatments, which will only make the nervous feelings worse. Thankfully, we offer a solution to help patients get the dental care they need while being in a relaxed state — dental sedation.

Please Don’t Delay!

Did we recommend a dental treatment for you or someone in your family during your last oral hygiene examination, but you have yet to schedule the appointment? We know that life is busy during this time of year, with activities, sports, and general day-to-day happenings, but we encourage you to schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Even if you aren’t in need of treatment at this time, it is important to know that delaying a necessary treatment can seriously impact the state of your oral health. You may experience a dental emergency, and the treatment plan may change if the damage progresses. We would hate for your spring and summer plans to be impacted by oral health issues. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of not delaying a treatment we recommend.

Reasons To Replace Missing Teeth

Have you recently had a tooth removed and are debating whether you are going to replace it? We have heard all the common concerns about replacing the missing tooth, from it not being visible to the fact that it is too expensive or that the process will be too time consuming. We are here to tell you that every tooth, no matter the location, should be replaced. The only teeth that do not need to be replaced are wisdom teeth and teeth that have been removed for orthodontic purposes. Dealing with tooth loss can be overwhelming, and people experience a variety of emotions. At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we are here to help our patients every step of the way. We want to be sure a tooth replacement option is chosen that will be beneficial and improve your quality of life.

Do Implants Hurt?

Are you in need of a tooth replacement and interested in learning more about dental implants as your final choice? Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option due to the many benefits they provide. Not only do they restore the function of the teeth, but they also blend in seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth. When patients learn more about dental implants, one of their main concerns is whether they will hurt. Dental implants are a more in-depth procedure than some other tooth replacement options, leading patients to wonder about the level of discomfort. Dr. Stryker recently took the opportunity to make a video explaining more about the process of dental implants and whether the treatment hurts or not.
