Children's Dental Care

Children's Dental Treatment Carmi ILOur Goals for Your Child
At each visit, we especially encourage children to continue with good daily hygiene habits. Their teeth are more prone to decay due to improper brushing, frequency of eating, and food choices.

We ask parents to help their children with brushing and flossing as needed. This will instill good dental hygiene habits. As young kids will often eat throughout the day, their teeth are continually being exposed to acid that is produced in the mouth while eating. Acid contributes to the occurrence of cavities.

If a tooth is not cleaned properly to begin with, that causes generation of more acid that increases the rate of cavity development. But better hygiene habits and dietary choices can help reduce the acidity in the mouth. One application of a mineralizing fluoride varnish also can greatly lessen the chances of decay setting in.

Preventive Dentistry

Gum Disease Treatment Carmi ILGum Disease and Lost Teeth
The general assumption among people is that most tooth loss is from decay. But it is actually due to gum disease, which can go unnoticed right up to the point of losing your teeth. Symptoms are bleeding gums while brushing or flossing and shifting or loose teeth. If gum disease is controlled before it reaches an advanced level, there are various nonsurgical methods that can reverse the problem.

Gum Disease Can Have Even More Serious Consequences


The American Dental Association has estimated that 80% of the American population has periodontal (gum) disease at some stage. Medical research has now concluded that gum disease and serious health conditions like stroke, diabetes, and heart disease are linked. With these two statistics, dentists are now considering gum disease to be a health epidemic. Having advanced gum infections put patients at risk more serious than just losing their teeth.

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums. This bacteria travels through the bloodstream to all the vital organs. The American Academy of Periodontology reports, "studies found periodontal infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of premature, underweight births, and pose a serious threat to people whose health is already compromised due to diabetes and respiratory diseases." 

Gum Disease Can Be Successfully Treated!
Once gum infection is advanced, the solution is surgery. It is mostly successful in combating the problem. In less severe cases, there are various nonsurgical procedures. With improved daily dental hygiene, the infection can be stopped. Both surgical and nonsurgical procedures are often covered by dental insurance plans.

Why Lost Teeth are a Serious Matter

Most people seem to think losing a tooth is no big deal. Is that the case? It is not good because other problems will result from even one missing tooth. Your chewing can become more difficult, so softer, higher-calorie foods are eaten, which can result in weight gain.
Periodontal Disease Treatment Carmi ILChewing is not as functional as it should be without a full set of teeth, which may mean obtaining fewer nutrients from food. Your face shape eventually changes, taking on a hollowed look in the cheeks without full dental arches to support them. Your speech may not be as clear or easy to understand as it should.
We recommend replacement of any missing teeth with implants. They function just like your own teeth and look so natural, it's hard to tell they are not your natural teeth.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 3

Having gum disease means I will lose my teeth
Not so! You don’t have to lose any of your teeth to gum disease if you practice good oral hygiene. That means brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning between your teeth daily, eating a healthy diet, and scheduling regular dental visits. Even if you are diagnosed with gum disease, your dentist can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.
