Fluoride, Sealants, Root Canals, & Extractions

Maintaining Your Health

At Red Bank Smiles, the second most important thing, aside from prevention, is maintenance. Fluoride is a natural substance that fortifies teeth against bacteria and sensitivity, and can be used people of all ages. Sealants are non-invasive coverings for the nooks and crannies of teeth that decay-causing bacteria hide in.

Your teeth utilize each other as you talk and chew. Natural, slowly progressive tooth wear is normal. However, excessive tooth wear is not. There are 3 causes to tooth wear, and each has their own prevention. Sometimes it is a grinding or clenching habit, which can be treated with a nightguard and any necessary restorations. Other times it is a discrepancy between the jaw joint and the teeth. Splints and restorations are utilized in this instance. Lastly, it can be caused by acid, either from what we eat or what we regurgitate. This can be corrected through diet and restorations.

Many people suffer from constant headaches and migraines. Sometimes, the cause can be grinding or clenching, and can be treated. Oftentimes, however, additional help is needed. When applied to the muscles of the face, Botox can relieve the over-working muscles for great relief. The additional benefit is a more rejuvenated face. We also work closely with allied health professionals to get you healthy and happy and feeling great!

When there is an infection at the root of a tooth, root canal therapy is indicated. That means we remove the infection, and fill the canal of the tooth with antibacterial material. Sometimes, however, we cannot save a tooth from the infection, or if it is broken beyond repair. We offer quick and painless extractions for these situations.
