When looking for a new dental practice, patients often have two key concerns: finding a dentist they like and trust, and finding a practice that offers many services from one location. Patients in Richmond, VA, can find both of these key considerations at the Richmond Smile Center. Dr. Martin believes in treating each patient with a comforting and gentle bedside manner while providing them with skilled techniques and expert care. Further, Dr. Martin, and his entire team, are committed to bringing individualized services to each patient, taking unique health, budget, and lifestyle considerations into mind before developing a treatment plan.
From cavities to teeth whitening, dental veneers to fixing a cracked or chipped tooth, Dr. Martin and his team offer a breadth of comprehensive dental services. Here are some of the most common dental issues that bring patients to our office:
- An aching tooth. A sore tooth can be mildly annoying or extremely painful. While some patients will try to treat the tooth with over the counter pain medication or ointments, a sore tooth is typically a sign of a larger problem and should be checked out by a professional dentist. The sooner patients seek treatment, the faster they can kick the toothache.
- Bleeding or inflamed gums. Many patients believe that seeing a little bit of blood on their toothbrush or in the sink after brushing is normal. While it is common, gums that are bleeding or inflamed are an indication of gum disease, a dental problem caused by bacteria causing and infecting pockets between the teeth and the gums. Caught early, gum disease can be treated and reversed by improving dental habits such as better brushing or more frequent flossing. Additionally symptoms of gum disease include bad breath that doesn’t go away, teeth that feel loose, or a gum line that appears to be receding.
- A chipped or broken tooth. Our teeth can be damaged any number of ways – a slip down the steps, a fall from a bike, a stray soccer ball you didn’t see coming. Regardless of how the tooth became broken or chipped, it’s critical to have it fixed immediately. When a dentist has the opportunity to examine the tooth soon after the accident, it’s more likely that he can fix it and ensure that the tooth retains is strength and function.
- A missing tooth. A missing tooth can be embarrassing. However, it’s important to have it replaced with a crown and bridge appliance, dental implant, or denture. Not only does having a full set of teeth give patients a happy and healthy smile and lead to better confidence, it also provides necessary support to the rest of your mouth.
