By knowing the signs to look for and visiting the dentist regularly, patients are able to prevent this detrimental condition or catch it in the earliest stages. In Washington, Dr. James G. Mace and his dedicated dental team offer preventive and restorative periodontal therapies to keep smiles healthy.

While renewing appearance and chewing ability is helpful, the underlying root structure also performs functions vital to oral health like anchoring the tooth in place and stimulating the jaw to retain adequate bone density. Luckily, Dr. James G. Mace and his Washington, MO team offer dental implant supported tooth replacement. This versatile treatment option replaces the entire missing tooth from the roots up.

Gum Disease and Your Overall Health

October 3, 2015

woman with a beautiful smile thanks to gum disease treatmentAs one of the most prevalent health issues in the US, some estimates indicate that periodontal (gum) disease affects 75% of adults. With staggering figures like those, it’s no surprise that dental practitioners are dedicated to helping patients prevent and treat gum disease.  In addition to raising the risk for tooth loss, uncontrolled gum disease is also related to heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic and systemic illnesses. The good news is that gum disease is treatable by dental professionals.  For many patients, the subtle signs of periodontal disease go unnoticed until the advanced stages making it more difficult to treat with less desirable outcomes. To avoid the detrimental whole body health effects associated with gum disease, Dr. James G. Mace employs dental hygienists, screens all of his patients annually for gum disease and works closely with a gum specialist (a periodontist) for cases that are more advanced.

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that helps people have the beautiful smiles of their dreams. In Washington, MO, the cosmetic dentist of choice is Dr. James. G. Mace.

The first and foremost responsibility of a dentist is to prevent dental and oral health problems. But did you know that having an attractive smile can help you maintain good oral health? It’s true. For example, if you have teeth that are crowded or misaligned, then you may have more trouble properly brushing and flossing in order to remove decay-causing bacteria and plaque. So, that beautiful smile may not only make you happier, it may also make you healthier.

What Does Your Washington, MO, Cosmetic Dentist Offer?

Dr. Mace and his team offer a number of popular cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Perhaps the most popular procedure is teeth whitening. We offer the Zoom! teeth whitening system for fast and lasting results. Combining a strong whitening gel with a special light that activates and speeds the whitening process, Zoom! can make your teeth up to 10 shades whiter. If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, then we can give you professional strength gel with custom made trays for you to wear at night for a couple of weeks.

For teeth that are chipped, cracked, slightly misaligned or irregularly spaced, Dr. Mace offers both cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers. With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Mace applies a composite resin material to the tooth needing repair and then shapes and mold the bonding material to restore the tooth’s natural beauty. Porcelain veneers are applied to the surface of your front teeth to create a new smile. Veneers are designed to hide more than one smile imperfection from staining to fractures and gaps.
