Idaho Falls General Dentistry Oral Health Maintenance
While an oral hygiene routine can prevent plaque buildup, we recommend our patients come in for professional dental cleanings at least twice a year. These allow Dr. Tall to clean hard-to-remove any tartar and determine if any restorative dentistry or cosmetic dentistry services are necessary.
Patients need healthy gums in order to support the teeth. When patients show signs of gum disease, Dr. Tall provides periodontal care to eliminating plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line. Dr. Tall uses a Piezo machine that uses sonic vibrations to blast tartar from the teeth and gums.
Many cases of sleep apnea are caused by the blockage of a patient’s airways. Our custom-made mouth guards can open up a patient's airways to allow for the adequate flow of oxygen while a patient sleeps.
Dr. Tall can create customized sports mouthguards for contact sports and other athletic activities. Sports mouth guards protect patients' teeth much in the same way padding and helmets protect the body.
Decay, trauma, and periodontal disease can necessitate teeth extractions. Dr. Tall can perform safe and successful tooth extractions and replace your tooth root with a dental implant. The dental implant can have a variety of restorations place on it, including a dental bridge, crown, or denture.
Preventative care is an important part of what we offer at our practice. With regular exams, cleanings, and good dental routines, we can help patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Keeping teeth and gums healthy also reduces the likelihood of periodontal disease and extensive dental work.
Dr. Tall and his warm and friendly team work with patients of all ages. We offer restorative treatments like dental implants and dental bridges for our older patients. For young children, we offer regular check-ups and examinations so they learn good oral hygiene practices early.
Many young children are often fearful about visiting the dentist. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for children, to make their visit to our office fun, easy, and educational.
Chronic bad breath is commonly caused by pockets of bacteria that form along the gums. Dr. Tall can perform a gentle deep cleaning to remove these bacterial pockets and restore your confidence.
Seniors face many oral health issues that younger patients typically do not, such as root decay, gum recession, and dry mouth. Dr. Tall can provide gentle and compassionate dental care for seniors to maintain excellent oral health.
