Find out why preventive dental care is so important for the health of your smile in the long run.preventive dentistry

Despite the fact that decay and gum disease are fairly common conditions, this doesn’t mean that it’s just inevitable. There is so much you can do to prevent these problems from happening to you. Our Augusta and Evans, GA, family dentists, Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris, are here to offer up some ways you can prevent decay and gum disease from ruining your oral health.

Brush Your Teeth Every Day

This should go without saying and yet some people only opt to brush their teeth once a day or, worst yet, whenever they remember. Brushing your teeth is not negotiable if you want healthy teeth. You need to be brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste if you want to protect your teeth from decay.

Flossing is Also Crucial

Many people just assume that if they are brushing regularly that they don’t need to floss. This is entirely incorrect. If you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums you must floss once a day. If you think about it, flossing once a day really isn’t that big a deal, so why put it off? This is the best way to remove plaque and food from between teeth and to protect your gums against periodontal disease.

Talk to Your Dentist

Whether you need to schedule your routine exam or you want to find out about dental sealants, our Evans and Augusta general dentist is here to make sure that you get the care you need whenever you need it. Coming in every six months for professional cleanings and exams is one great way to pinpoint potential problems and continue to monitor them so they don’t become full-fledged issues. We can also talk to you about other options like orthodontic treatments, which can straighten teeth and make it easier to clean your teeth and gums to reduce your chances of decay.

Summerville Dentistry is proud to serve the Augusta and Evans, GA, areas, offering the very best in dental care for an array of services. Remember, those six-month visits are vitally important for everyone. If you don’t have your next visit on the books, give us a call today.

Same day crowns are a great treatment procedure for those seeking dental restorations without the wait. Crowns are generally used in order to strengthen damaged teeth so they can function as they did before again. They are custom made to improve the appearance and/or function of a tooth and to prevent further damage from occurring. When you’re interested in same day crowns in Augusta, Georgia, look to Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris at Summerville Dentistry with locations in both Augusta and Evans, Georgia. They have had success in creating custom made same day crowns for a variety of patients.

More about Same Day Crowns

Same day crowns are usually used when tooth decay is so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed. A crown can protect a tooth if this happens. They can also help protect cracked teeth from worsening and for dental bridges. The E4D system is an easy to use CAD/CAM system that is changing modern dentistry. It can be used for veneers, inlays, onlays and same day crowns by your Augusta, Georgia dentist. We can obtain fast digital impressions in a few minutes with a laser scanner. From these impressions, we can custom make dental restorations for patients while they’re still in the chair. The impression is sent to the machine and is created. There’s no need for messy impression materials or temporary crowns and additional visits. Everything is done in the same visit. After it is created, it is placed in the mouth permanently with a bonding material that is hardened with a curing light.

A comprehensive dental examination is required to determine whether or not same day crowns are a viable treatment option for each patient. To schedule an informative appointment with Dr. Wingard or Dr. Morris today call Summerville Dentistry in Evans, GA, at 706-303-8283, or Augusta, GA, at 706-738-4723.

Tags: Invisalign   Orthodontics   Braces  

Your desire to improve your smile doesn't have to be shared with the whole world. Invisalign, an innovative clear brace system, allows invisalignyou to straighten your teeth discreetly. Augusta and Evans, Georgia dentists Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris explain how Invisalign works.

Straighter teeth, no wires

There's no hiding the fact that you're straightening your teeth when you wear wire or ceramic braces. Unlike traditional teeth straightening methods, Invisalign is wire-free. A series of aligner trays gently changes the position of your teeth with the Invisalign system. You'll wear the trays for two weeks at a time before using a new set. Approximately every six weeks, you'll visit the Evans or Augusta office for follow-up appointments.

The less obtrusive option

Because Invisalign aligner trays are clear, wires won't be the first thing people notice when you smile. The aligner trays are custom-fitted to your teeth and designed to be virtually unnoticeable.

Designed to fit your lifestyle

Wearing Invisalign trays is far less complicated than dealing with traditional braces. Invisalign offers:

  • Convenience: Invisalign aligners should be worn for 22 hours per day, which means you can take them out when it's just not convenient to wear your trays. Do you play sports? Remove your trays and wear a mouthguard during your game or practice. Once the activity is over, simply reinsert your aligners.
  • Comfort: Invisalign aligner trays are constructed with soft plastic to make straightening your teeth a much more comfortable experience.
  • Easy Care: You'll rinse the aligners before and after you eat and use the Invisalign cleaning crystals to remove plaque. Since there are no wires or brackets to avoid, brushing and flossing is just as easy as ever.
  • No Food Restrictions: Your friends who wear traditional braces must commit to avoiding foods that can break their wires. Hard, crunchy foods and foods that get stuck in the wires or brackets, such as chewing gum and popcorn, must be avoided. You won't have these limitations since you'll remove the trays when you eat.

Straighten your teeth the easy way with Invisalign. Call your Augusta and Evans, Georgia dentists Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris at their Evans office (706) 303-8283 or Augusta office (706) 738-4723 to schedule an appointment.

Dental hygiene is the practice of keeping the teeth and mouth clean to prevent oral health problems. Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb oral hygieneMorris of Summerville Dentistry, with offices in Augusta and Evans, GA, offer a full range of family dental services. Here are five ways to keep your mouth healthy for life.

Brushing Twice a Day

Brushing your teeth once a day could leave you with cavities and gum disease. Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a toothpaste that contains fluoride. Don't brush your teeth more than three times a day. Brushing your teeth too much can wear down your teeth's enamel and damage your gums.

Flossing Once a Day

Floss your teeth at least once a day. Use dental floss to clean the spaces between your teeth. Flossing allows you to reach deep between your teeth where the bristles cannot reach. By flossing your teeth every day, you lower your odds of developing tooth decay and gum disease.

Chuck Your Toothbrush

Know when to chuck your toothbrush. Invest in a new standard toothbrush or a replacement head for your electric toothbrush every three months — or sooner if the bristles become frayed. Research shows that after three months of normal wear and tear, toothbrushes are less effective at removing plaque from gums and teeth compared to new ones.

Use Mouth Rinses

Using mouth rinses can make a positive impact on oral health, so individuals should consider adding it to their oral hygiene routines. Mouth rinses are used to freshen breath, help prevent tooth decay, reduce plaque and prevent gum disease. The use of mouth rinses does not eliminate the need for flossing and brushing.

Visit the Dentist

In order to maintain good oral health, schedule a dental appointment with your Augusta or Evans, GA, dentist. The ADA recommends that individuals see a dentist every six months for a dental checkup. Spend some quality time with your dentist and you'll catch oral health problems at an early stage when they're treatable.

Taking good care of your smile is a worthy goal in and of itself. Good oral hygiene can help prevent cavities and gum disease—and can help you keep your teeth for a lifetime. Call Summerville Dentistry in Evans, GA, at 706-303-8283, or Augusta, GA, at 706-738-4723, today to schedule your dental appointment. Regular visits to your dentist will get you on the road to good oral health.
