General Dentistry in Bloomingdale
Prevent Gum Disease & Preserve Your Overall Health
Since first opening our doors in 1972, our team at MyDentist has brought
quality dental care to the residents of Bloomingdale, Glendale Heights,
and Roselle, IL. Though our name has changed, our commitment to patient
care has not! We utilize the latest equipment and techniques to deliver
the best possible service.
Your dental health plays an important part in your general health and your
confidence in your appearance every day. Scheduling a biannual dental
checkup in Bloomingdale at Eagle Falls Dentistry or at Associated Dental
Care is one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect your dental
health. Your family dentist will not only provide the important preventive
care you need to reduce your risk for common dental concerns, but also
offer targeted treatment that includes dental fillings, endodontics, and
periodontal care to quickly address dental disease if it does occur.
Our general dental services include:
Professional dental cleanings are crucial for the overall maintenance
of oral health. By regularly removing the buildup of plaque and tartar,
your teeth and gums will be much less vulnerable to infection or disease.
One of the best ways to prevent tooth decay is by strengthening the enamel
on your teeth through the regular application of fluoride. It bonds to
tooth enamel to minimize the damage done by acids and sugars.
Dental sealants protect hard-to-reach teeth against decay through the application
of a plastic resin in tooth pits and fissures. Our team can carefully
apply the sealant to ensure you receive the proper results.
A dental bridge spans the gap created by a missing tooth—filling
it with a natural-looking replacement. The bridge remains in place by
attaching to the teeth on either side. Bridges can improve your health
as well as your ability to speak and chew.
Stained, cracked, or chipped teeth can be repaired and protected through
the application of a porcelain dental crown. We can select a color and
shape that is specifically designed to match the rest of your teeth.
For patients who have lost all their teeth, dentures are a great way to
improve your overall appearance as well as your health. Dentures come
in a variety of options including full or partial sets.
Today's tooth fillings seamlessly blend with the color of your damaged
tooth—while repairing cavities that result from decay. The long-lasting
material can protect your tooth from further damage.
A root canal allows damaged teeth to be treated and rehabilitated instead
of being pulled. Our skilled dentists can perform a root canal to preserve
your overall health and prevent decay.
The successful treatment of oral cancer begins with early detection. Cancer
screening is a routine part of the dental examination. We can catch any
symptoms early on to increase your chances of treating cancer before it worsens.
What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup
A dental checkup consists of several different services during a single
visit to your dental clinic. Knowing what to expect during your checkup
can help you get more from this important commitment to your long-term
- During each checkup, you will be asked to update your dental clinic on
your general health. Because many medications and health changes can affect
your teeth and gums, such as diabetes, heart disease, and even pregnancy,
your dentist needs this information to better develop a personalized dentistry plan.
- You will receive both X-rays and a visual exam of your teeth and gums,
including an oral cancer screening. This multifaceted approach allows
your dental team to identify the earliest signs of dental disease and
take action quickly to treat it.
- Your dental checkup is also a great opportunity to talk to your dentist
about changes or concerns associated with your dental health, as well
as a chance to review the best at-home teeth cleaning techniques and products
to maintain oral health between your dental visits.
Signs You Should Visit Your Dentist
Even if you regularly schedule biannual dental checkups with your family
dentist, there are some dental health signs that indicate you may need
to visit your dentist for additional treatment. If you’d like to
find out more about maintaining excellent oral health near Bloomingdale,
please call Eagle Falls Dentistry at (630) 894-5180.
- Tooth pain lasting more than a day is an indication that you may have developed
a deeper infection that needs a dental filling or root canal therapy.
Even if your pain subsides, it’s still best to schedule a checkup
with your dentist promptly.
- The development of unexplained or persistent bad breath, tooth sensitivity,
or changes in the color of the tissues of your mouth should be addressed
by your dentist, as these are often changes associated with dental disease.
- Bleeding from your gums when you brush and floss is an early sign of gum
disease, which can only be treated through professional dental cleaning.
If you notice bleeding or tender gums, contact your dental clinic to schedule
