Problems We Treat at CDA Dental Center

It’s estimated that 50% of adults snore on a regular basis. Many of us have experienced firsthand that loud snoring can negatively affect sleep. Snoring can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Our sleep apnea CDA dentists help people in Coeur d’Alene stop snoring and start sleeping better.

What causes snoring?

When your tongue and other tissues in the back of your throat relax after you fall asleep, snoring happens. As airflow speed increases and your airway narrows, the relaxed tissues begin to vibrate, creating the snorting or rattling sounds we know as snoring.

How do you stop snoring in Coeur d’Alene?

  • Changes in Lifestyle
  • Over-the-Counter Options
  • Medical Treatments

Should permanent teeth wiggle?

Among children, wiggly permanent teeth are a common occurrence. But for adults, any tooth that moves beyond 1mm is not considered normal. If your tooth is loose, it should be addressed immediately, as it could be a sign of trauma or disease. Schedule an appointment right away in our Coeur d’Alene dental office and we’ll determine the cause of your loose tooth and help prevent tooth loss.

Causes of Loose Teeth Coeur d’Alene

  • Gum Disease
  • Grinding & Impact Injury
  • Pregnancy

We can prevent a loose tooth from falling out by:

  1. Treating gum disease – this is achieved with a deep cleaning, stabilizing your gums with soft tissue or bone graft, or other gum therapy.
  2. Stabilizing your tooth - while your tooth heals, we apply a bonding agent that acts as a splinting material across the back surfaces of your tooth.
  3. Removing the tooth - it may be best to remove the tooth and replace it with a durable, long-lasting solution, such as a dental implant.

Dental Deep Cleaning Coeur d'Alene

A standard dental cleaning focuses on removing plaque and tartar build-up that’s above the gumline on the teeth. The risk of gum disease is heightened, however, when plaque build-up is significant. It can be difficult with a standard cleaning to remove bacteria that start to form pockets just under the gumline.

That’s when deep cleaning gums, also referred to as root planning or scaling, becomes necessary. Coeur d'Alene Deep cleaning effectively removes plaque and bacteria from below the gumline to prevent gum disease and possible tooth decay in the future.

Learn More About Deep Cleanings

Gum Recession and its Causes

Dental gum recession is when the gums pull back from the tooth’s surface. When this happens, the receding gums create pockets between the gums and the tooth, allowing harmful bacteria to build up. Gum recession also exposes more of the tooth’s root surface, which in turn makes the surface area under the gums more vulnerable to bacteria. If there’s a prolonged presence of harmful bacteria, it can lead to tooth decay, gum infections, and even tooth loss.

Treatments for Gum Recession Coeur d’Alene

The treatment plan for gum recession is determined by how advanced the condition is in the patient. Our dental team can treat even the most severe forms of gum recession.

In some cases, dental gum recession could be corrected by a deep cleaning session, also known as root planing or scaling. During this procedure, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the affected area. Then, plaque and tartar build-up are scraped away below the gum line. This treatment promotes healing in the infected and receding gums by discouraging further bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

A dental deep cleaning will cause some discomfort after treatment so gums could be sore and swollen, and teeth could be sensitive for a few days afterwards. Consider using over-the-counter pain relievers for some relief.
