Dr. Haque is a cosmetic dentist in Oak Brook dedicated to helping his patients improve their smile, appearance and confidence. Whether you need teeth whitening, adult braces, or want to fix a chipped tooth, he is here to help you. You are a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you have any of the following dental conditions:
- Stained or yellowed teeth
- Cracked, chipped, decayed or missing teeth
- Your previous dental treatments have worn out and are no longer effective
- Your teeth are crooked
- You want to correct an overbite or an underbite
- There is a large gap between one or more of your teeth
- You would like to change the shape, size or alignment of one or more teeth.
As people become better healthcare advocates for themselves and their families, the incidence of tooth decay continues to decrease. Regular fluoride treatments are another reason for this positive change. However, the problem has not gone away entirely. Despite your best efforts and the work of Dr. Haque and his staff, patients still experience broken, decayed and infected teeth. If you are having similar issues, consider looking into restorative dentistry. It can correct a wide variety of dental issues, including the following:
- Eliminates pain when you bite and chew your food
- Fills in gaps between teeth to give you a more attractive smile
- Replaces missing teeth with natural-looking alternatives
- Improves the appearance and function of decayed and damaged teeth
- Provides treatment for your natural tooth before it becomes necessary to replace it
- Straightens crooked teeth or corrects an improper bite
- Replaces previous dental treatments that have failed
- Restorative dentistry enhances your smile and gives you back your confidence
Periodontal disease is a severe, and often looked over disease of the gums that can lead to the loss of teeth, infection, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Periodontitis starts as gingivitis when plaque buildup causes the gums to become tender and recede, and is often looked over by patients because the only noticeable symptoms are the tenderness and bleeding of gums. Once it is detected by your dentist or dental hygienist during a periodontal examination, periodontal disease treatment can begin.
Periodontal disease is easily preventable. Flossing regularly after your brush your teeth and seeing your dentist twice a year can not only help prevent periodontal disease, but help detect it early enough that it doesn’t do much damage and is easily treatable.
