Smiles are one of the ways we convey a range of emotions. It’s remarkable, when you stop and think about it. A simple curling of the lips, and you’re sending a silent, positive message. With a smile makeover from Cornwall Dental Arts in Cornwall ON, that message can go from charming to stunning.

The elements of a smile makeover may include teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Beauty

Oral Cancer Screenings in Cornwall ON

Dental checkups are about more than just cavities. At Cornwall Dental Arts in Cornwall ON, we include an oral cancer screening that can give you peace of mind, and might just save your life.

In the last few decades, lung and breast cancer have received a lot of public attention. There is relatively less awareness of oral cancer. If you smoke or have tested positive for HPV, you have a higher risk for developing oral cancer.

The unfortunate reality is that oral cancer claims thousands of lives every single year. It is sometimes called a silent killer, because early warning signs are scarcely noticeable. Early detection and treatment is the best way to beat it.

Here are five vital things to know about mouth and throat cancers.

  1. About 80% of people with oral cancer use some variety of tobacco (cigarettes, chewing tobacco, pipes).
  2. The survival rate for early stage diagnosis is 90%.
  3. For those who get a late-stage diagnosis, 40% die within five years.
  4. In many cases, it is almost impossible for the individual to detect oral cancers because the symptoms are subtle, even non-existant. Any abnormality in the mouth or throat, even if small and painless, should be examined by a dentist or doctor.
  5. Black males have a higher risk of dying from oral cancer than whites.

At Cornwall Dental Arts in Cornwall ON, we don’t take cancer lightly, and neither should you. We provide oral cancer screenings that can identify cancer in the earliest stages. Other services include gum disease treatment, and general and family dentistry.

Digital X-Rays At Your Morrisburg Dentist

Affordable Smile Makeovers In Cornwall

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we understand that dentistry is always evolving. There are always new ways to help our patients have the healthiest and most beautiful smile possible. Rest assured, we keep up with the times, and pride ourselves on our modern Morrisburg office.

Many dental offices have found that as a diagnostic tool, digital X-rays are a significant step forward. They are more accurate than conventional X-rays, produce less radiation, and the images can more easily be stored, and compared with past images.

Diode lasers are innovative instruments that allow us to detect bacteria levels in your mouth as well as find and treat cavities.

For Cornwall patients interested in cosmetic or restorative dentistry, CAD (computer-assisted design) technology can allow procedures that involve crowns and bridges to be done in fewer appointments.

If you are considering a full smile makeover and want veneers, the newer, thinner veneers are just as strong and beautiful, but more of the original tooth is left intact.

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we want our patients to have the best oral health possible. In addition to the latest in dental technology and procedures, we also offer general and family dentistry.

Call us today to schedule an appointment!

Healthy Teeth, Healthy Baby

Cornwall dental exam during pregnancy

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we treat patients from childhood into adulthood. As pediatric dentists, we recommend that children have their first dental appointment around the age of two.

This post, however, is for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Carrying a precious child can not only consume your time, but your attention as well. Don’t forget your needs and your stamina during these important months.

It’s vital to understand that the changes your body experiences during pregnancy also influence your dental health. Changes in your hormonal balance are needed for growing a new life, but they can also compromise your teeth. Your gums are especially susceptible. In fact, studies reveal a slightly increased risk of low birth weight and pre-term infants in mothers with gum disease.

In order to keep your smile healthy, visit your dentist before you are pregnant. If you are already pregnant but haven’t visited a dentist in a while, we encourage you to have an exam. Your dentist can check your teeth and gums, and advise you if any changes to your dental hygiene routine are needed. If there are problems such as gingivitis, it’s a good idea to have your dentist monitor them throughout your pregnancy.

Put off any treatment that can wait until after your little one arrives,. If you have a dental emergency that needs to be addressed before delivery, the best time is during the second trimester. Modern x-ray methods are extremely safe but should be avoided if possible throughout your pregnancy.

When you arrive for your exam, be sure to tell your dentist that you are pregnant. If your doctor has given you special instructions concerning your condition, let your dentist know. Additionally, give your dentist a list of all the medications and vitamins you are taking. Throughout your pregnancy, be sure to see your dentist immediately if you experience any changes to your teeth or gums.

Remember, your diet significantly affects your baby’s health and development, as well as the condition of your teeth. A diet low in essential nutrients can impede your baby’s tooth and bone development. Meals and snacks high in sugar, expecially when consumed frequently throughout the day, do not support your baby or your teeth. Make sure you get enough calcium, iron, vitamins A, D and C, protein, and phosphorus.

If you are looking for an esteemed and responsive family dentist in the Cornwall area, call Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We provide trusted dental care, and take special care of our patients who are expecting.

Small Dental Annoyance Or Serious Problem?

General Dentistry Oral Discomfort Tips In Cornwall ON

Today in the Cornwall dental blog we are going to talk about stomatitis. Stomatitis is dental-speak for something very common: non-specific irritations found in the mouth. Stomatitis is usually caused by cold sores, gum disease, or even from biting the inside of the mouth (ouch!). Any time the membranes in the mouth become inflamed, they are referred to as stomatitis.

Most individuals have probably suffered from stomatitis and don’t think it’s a big deal. The good news is that these patients are usually right because the majority of these irritations clear up on their own in less than two weeks. While they might affect the ability to speak or eat or fall asleep, they are frequently just a temporary inconvenience.

However, there are cases where a bacterial or a viral infection can occur in these areas of inflammation.

Because of this possibility, your Cornwall dentist should be aware of these issues. Even if you are fortunate and there is no infection present, your dentist can always help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.

Hi, my name is Dr. Steven Deneka of Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall. I provide the highest quality preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry for my Cornwall area patients.

What’s The Difference Between An Inlay And An Onlay?

tooth colored fillings Cornwall

If you have tooth sensitivity or pain when you chew with your back teeth, the surfaces may be damaged. One option for restoration is the use of an inlay or onlay made of metal, composite resin, or porcelain.

Inlays are very strong and shaped to precisely fit a hole in a damaged tooth. The choice of an inlay or onlay depends on how much decay and tooth loss has transpired.

An inlay resembles a filling and fills a small part of the tooth, while an onlay covers one or more of the cusps on the top of the tooth. In other words, an inlay fills a hole without changing the shape of the tooth, while an onlay builds up the tooth surface to restore its former dimension.

The procedure begins with a thorough evaluation, digital x-ray, and an impression. The damaged area will be removed and then the inlay or onlay will be formed to accurately fit your tooth and bite. While it is being made, your tooth will have a temporary restoration piece to cover and protect the vulnerable area.

Finally, the inlay or onlay will be placed and permanently bonded to the tooth. Since the procedure requires removal of damaged tooth material, restoration fabrication at the lab, and the placement on the tooth, it will take a few appointments to perform the process.

Inlays and onlays guard the tooth from further degeneration, provide natural function, and are durable and inconspicuous.

Dr. Steven Deneka has been performing restorative dentistry on teeth since 1985 for patients of all ages. Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is located in Cornwall though we treat patients from the surrounding communities of Ingleside, Long Sious, and Lancaster. Our dental services include pediatric dentistry, and family dentistry. Make your appointment today!

Five Facts About Enamel Erosion

enamel erosion treatment Cornwall

Our teeth work hard and are continuously under assault. It’s no wonder that nature encases them with an armor of enamel—the hardest substance in the body. Unfortunately, enamel erosion is extremely pervasive, though largely preventable. Enamel’s chief enemies are acidic foods and beverages. Other factors that can weaken enamel or wear it away are some medications, teeth grinding, acid reflux, gastrointestinal ailments, chewing ice or other hard substances, and eating disorders.

At Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we educate our general dentistry patients about how to keep their enamel strong and halt future erosion if some has already developed.

Here are five quick facts about enamel erosion:

1. Enamel is unlike many other tissues in the body; once it has been eroded, it can’t be regenerated.

2. According to the NIH, 41% of adolescents already have enamel erosion.

3. Aggressive brushing can impair enamel.

4. Diet sodas, sports drinks, and energy drinks are just as harmful as sugared sodas.

5. Dry mouth can weaken enamel because it results in less saliva which helps keep enamel healthy and strong.

If you have already experienced enamel erosion, it’s vital to halt future erosion. There are several cosmetic dentistry procedures that can protect the teeth that have been harmed. Call Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today at 855-976-7250 to schedule an examination. Dr. Deneka will give you guidance on the best dental treatments for enamel erosion.

It is possible with safe and affordable teeth whitening at Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
