Healthy Gums and Happy Smiles

August 14, 2017

woman receives dental cleaning for healthy gumsPeriodontal (gum) disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for US adults. Some studies indicate that this prevalent oral health condition effects as much as 80% of the adult population over the age of 35. Unfortunately, many cases of gum disease go undiagnosed and untreated for years. This can lead to negative effects such as bleeding gums, receding gum line, teeth that shift out of alignment, and chronic bad breath. At Generations Dental Care, we partner with patients to prevent these adverse oral health effects, ensuring healthy gums and teeth. When we aren’t able to stop gum disease before it begins, we provide a wide variety of periodontal therapies to put the smiles back on our patients’ faces. If you’d like to find out more about periodontal disease and the treatments available for our patients, please call our friendly team to schedule an appointment today.

Children’s Dentistry in Concord, NH

May 25, 2015

467777161Is there anything more adorable than your children’s smiling faces? Probably not. But wouldn’t those smiles look that much better if you knew they were healthy and happy, too? At Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH, we want your children to enjoy a lifetime of excellent dental and oral health. Our children’s dentistry helps you help them establish habits that keep smiles strong and bright for years to come.

Our dentists and their team of dental hygienists and assistants may be educated and trained in children’s dentistry, but your children’s first true dentist is you. As soon as you see that first little baby tooth erupt through their gums, it’s time to start a simple hygiene routine. Simply take a soft cloth moistened with warm water and wipe their baby teeth and gums after feeding. As they grow and more teeth appear, you can begin to use a small, soft toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste.

Children’s Dentistry in Our Office

Sometime between your children’s first and third birthdays, the dentists at Generations Dental Care recommend that you begin bringing them to our office for dental checkups every six months. Children’s teeth and mouths are susceptible to the same problems as adults’—decay and cavities, gum disease, teeth grinding and even TMJ disorder and sleep apnea. With regularly scheduled checkups, we can find and treat these conditions. And at each checkup, we’ll offer suggestions on how you and your children can improve their oral hygiene routine at home.

Fluoride and Dental Sealants

Because adequate brushing and flossing can be difficult for children—and because their molars tend to be deeply grooved and pitted—our dentists might recommend a fluoride treatment or dental sealants for an added layer of protection. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens enamel, and sealants go on as a liquid and harden to a clear plastic that shields the chewing surfaces of teeth from bacteria.

Call Our Office Today

To maintain your children’s healthy and happy smiles, rely on the dentists at Generations Dental Care. We serve patients in Concord, NH, as well as from Penacook, Bow, Canterbury, Chichester, Pembroke, Manchester, Hooksett, Boscawen, Epsom, Hopkinton and Loudon.

Teeth Whitening from Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH

May 10, 2015

158554263Ah, summer. Time for sunshine, swimming and smiles. By the way—is your smile ready for summer or could your pearly whites use a boost? If you’d like to have a smile that’s as bright as a summer day, then head over to Generations Dental Care for teeth whitening. We’ve whitened the smiles of many people in and around Concord, NH, and we can do the same for you.

As people age, their teeth can become stained and discolored. There are a number of reasons, not the least of which is the inevitable aging process itself. Other contributing factors include:

  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • Chips and cracks that can hide stain-causing food particles and debris
  • Bruxism, or teeth grinding, which can darken the biting edges of teeth
  • Traumatic injury to a tooth
  • Certain oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline
  • A genetic predisposition to teeth that are more yellow, gray or brown in color

Whatever the reason, you don’t have to put up with teeth that are off color. You can have a whiter and brighter smile with teeth whitening from Generations Dental Care.

Teeth Whitening Options in Concord, NH

For the fastest results, we offer either Kör Deep Bleaching or Zoom! Teeth Whitening in-office systems. No matter which you select, you’ll have whiter teeth in just one appointment. Either the Kör Deep Bleaching or Zoom! Teeth Whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. Both gels use your teeth’s innate ability to absorb oxygen, thus allowing the gel to penetrate deeply to remove stains and discolorations.

On the other hand, if you’re not in a big hurry or if you’d simply prefer to whiten on your own schedule in the privacy of your own home, then we have Kör and Zoom! take-home whitening kits, too. We’ll give you custom-fitted whitening trays and professional grade gel. Fill the trays and wear them as your dentist instructs, and you’ll see great results in about two weeks.

 Call Our Office Today

Ready for your best summer smile? Then call the office of Generations Dental Care and schedule an appointment for teeth whitening. We serve patients in Concord, NH, as well as from Penacook, Bow, Canterbury, Chichester, Pembroke, Manchester, Hooksett, Boscawen, Epsom, Hopkinton and Loudon.

Root Canal Therapy from Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH

April 30, 2015

464901930Each one of your teeth is an amazing structure. Attractive, functional and quite tough. But did you know that tough exterior hides a soft interior? Literally. At the core of each tooth is soft pulp, containing nerve and lymph tissue, as well as blood vessels. If that tough exterior should happen to be broken, then the soft pulp is highly susceptible to infection. If this happens, then a root canal is necessary. The dentists at Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH, offer root canal therapy to restore your tooth’s good health.

Perhaps the most obvious and common sign that a tooth is infected is pain. The pain can be moderate to severe and usually does not dissipate. Other indicators include:

  • Swelling and redness of the gums and other soft tissue around the infected tooth
  • A tooth that is suddenly discolored
  • Facial swelling
  • Bad breath
  • Signs of infection on an x-ray

The Ins and Outs of Root Canal

When patients come to Generations Dental Care for root canal therapy, the first thing our dentists do is make sure they’re composed and comfortable. For those who need a little help relaxing, our office offers oral conscious sedation. Once settled, we’ll get to work removing the infection and repairing your tooth.

To remove the infection, one of our dentists accesses the pulp chamber and removes that tissue along with the infection and its debris. The chamber and the attached root canals are disinfected and filled with a biocompatible material. The chamber is then sealed and the tooth is prepared for a crown that will protect the tooth from further damage and restore its strength and function.

After you’ve healed and your dentist is certain the infection has been eliminated, you’ll return to Generations Dental Care to have your permanent crown placed.

Call Our Office Today

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, then you may need root canal therapy. Schedule an appointment with Generations Dental Care. We serve patients in Concord, NH, as well as from Penacook, Bow, Canterbury, Chichester, Pembroke, Manchester, Hooksett, Boscawen, Epsom, Hopkinton and Loudon.
