Impacted wisdom teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. Dental implants are another option for tooth loss due to an accident or infection or as an alternative to bridges and dentures. The implants are implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored in place in the jawbone and act to stabilize the artificial teeth to which they are attached.
As a member of the Hollywood Perfect Smile family, you won’t have to be referred out to some specialty practice for your treatment.

Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
To fix the problem, we have to determine the location and severity of the crack. Therefore, the first step in deciding the best course of action is to take an X-ray. The best scenario is that a simple filling is all that is needed to repair the damaged area. However, if the crack is too deep or large, then a root canal, a crown, or an extraction might be necessary. We will recommend the best course of treatment for repairing the tooth and getting you out of pain the same day.
Gum diseases range from simple gum inflammation—called gingivitis—to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth—called periodontitis. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis, which means there is inflammation around the tooth. In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form gaps, called pockets, that become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed and the teeth may eventually have to be removed.
It’s true. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to gum disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke. Gum disease and resulting infections can also cause blood sugar levels to rise, making it more difficult to control your diabetes. Additionally, studies have shown that pregnant women with gum disease may be seven times more likely to deliver prematurely.
These facts say a mouthful, but the bottom line is that good dental care is imperative to overall wellness. There’s simply no question that a healthy smile can lead to a long, healthy life and we are committed to helping you keep a PERFECT SMILE for a lifetime.
