Correcting Problems with Dental Technology at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS

Correcting Severe Dental Problems in WetaskiwinWe live in a time when most problems with teeth can be corrected by one type of dental technology or another. A dental implant can replace a missing tooth. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of the teeth surfaces that are discolored or slightly misshapen. Dental bonding can fill a small chip in an otherwise healthy tooth. All of these and more are offered by Timothy G. Mahoney in Wetaskiwin.

Some dental problems are more extensive than others, and require a combination of procedures. Crown restoration combined with soft tissue grafts can restore a severely decayed tooth with the root exposed. A bone graft and dental implant can restore a missing tooth in an area where the jaw bone has receded. Orthodontics followed by teeth bleaching totally transforms a smile.

What is the difference between tooth bleaching and whitening? Whitening is the term for procedures which remove surface stains to restore the degree of natural lightness. Bleaching goes even further by lightening teeth beyond their natural shade. That’s right: you don’t have to resign yourself to yellow teeth even if they have been that way your whole life.

Modern dental technology has much to offer. Procedures that might have seemed like science fiction a generation ago have become part of mainstream dentistry. Schedule a consultation at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin to discover the cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve your ultimate smile.

Questions To Ask Your Wetaskiwin Dentist

Questions To Ask Your Wetaskiwin Dentist Some people research their mechanic or hairdresser more thoroughly than their dental professional. Shouldn’t your dental care matter more than the condition of your car or the style of your hair? At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS, we love to answer questions about all facets of dentistry.

There are many things to consider before you decide who you are going to entrust your teeth to. Some are obvious: you want a dentist whose practice isn’t too far from your home. You should always be willing to travel a little further if there’s a practice you really like, of course. But having a dentist nearby makes it a lot easier to schedule appointments.

It’s important that you feel comfortable with a dentist, too. Do you have a good rapport? Can you communicate any issues you may have, and get satisfactory answers?

You may have questions about the types of care that is available. These may include crowns, braces, root canals, or dental implants. These may not be on your radar now, but it is a good idea to have an understanding of your options.

At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we offer the full menu of general and cosmetic dentistry services, including teeth whitening. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Make Brushing Count! Dental Health in Wetaskiwin

Ponoka affordable family dentist

You’ve been brushing your teeth since you were a little kid, so by now, you know what you’re doing, right? Well, maybe. You’d be surprised to learn how many of our patients at Dr. Timothy G Mahoney in Wetaskiwin are, at best, doing only a moderate job of cleaning their teeth. And that has a direct impact on their dental health.

These are the steps that we recommend to best take care of your teeth and gums:

1. Use a Soft Bristle Toothbrush

Soft bristle brushes are best for removing plaque and debris, while simultaneously massaging and cleansing along the gum line. Use whatever brush feels best in your hand, so long as it allows you to reach all of your teeth. Electric toothbrushes don’t necessarily do a better job, but they can be a real blessing to anyone with agility issues.

2. Brush for Two Minutes

Divide your mouth into four sections, and spend at least thirty seconds in each quarter. Get the chewing surfaces, the inside surfaces, the outside surfaces and gently massage the gums. Be sure to pay attention to the far side of the back tooth that is never visible but can collect food and allow cavities to begin.

3. Floss

Take two minutes to floss after brushing in the evening to remove any remnants the toothbrush couldn’t coax out and to clean any build-up. You have approximately 32 teeth and 32 gaps to floss clean. Two minutes should do the trick, but adding an extra minute for good measure can’t hurt.

4.  Brush Three Times a Day

Brushing after every meal should remain the goal. This is difficult for many who are not home for the midday meal. To achieve extraordinary dental hygiene, brushing is priority one. There are as many toothpaste choices out there as you have teeth; without consistent brushing and flossing, those teeth are facing sure destruction.

At Timothy G. Mahoney in Wetaskiwin, we provide our patients with cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, sedation dentistry, Invisalign clear braces, and dental implants.

Your Perfect Smile Is Only A Few Dental Visits Away

Wetaskiwin lowest price teeth bleaching

What does it take to change the way you look? Long hours at the gym? Expensive trips to the most cutting-edge salon in Wetaskiwin? What about a routine trip to Dr. Timothy G Mahoney?

You may not love going to the dentist, but you will love the results when they help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, but the dramatic results never cease to impress.

We can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:

1. Bleaching in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.

2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home, the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects, so it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Also, there are many at-home whiteners available, and your dentist can direct you to the best ones.

3. Toothpaste with whitening properties. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemical or polishing agents. These will provide additional stain removal which complements the surface stain removal offered by all toothpastes.

At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, helping our dental patients establish good habits is important, as is helping them achieve the smile they want using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, and complete smile makeovers. Make an appointment today.

Let’s Work Together To Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful

low cost tooth bleaching Wetaskiwin

Here at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice and what you can do at home.

For example, teeth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for whitening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening techniques are also safe and effective and sometimes more budget-friendly.

Additionally, we counsel you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Education and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary liquid can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.

If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and dental health, please pick up the phone and contact the  Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin. We provide a full spectrum of dental services from general to cosmetic dentistry to dental implants.

Developing Good Dental Habits

Developing Good Dental Habits In Leduc

Benjamin Franklin once said:

It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.

At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS, we believe this is especially true for dental health. For parents in the Wetaskiwin area, teaching your children good oral hygiene techniques early in life will benefit their smile throughout their life.

If you wait too long to teach your child how to brush and floss, or if you don’t make sure they are doing it enough, you’re setting yourself up for a lot of work down the road.

It’s very hard to convince an older child that they should be spending two or three times longer brushing their teeth each morning and night. But if they’ve done it for as long as they can remember, then their habits should be sufficient to avoid excessive dental decay or the need for children’s cosmetic dentistry.

If you are looking for quality dental care in the Leduc, Camrose, or Ponoka area, give us a call here at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS. We are currently accepting new patients, and we would love to help you learn how to teach kids good dental health, including brushing habits. We’ll also answer questions you have have about general or cosmetic dentistry.

Wetaskiwin Dental News: Oral Health And Heart Disease

Top Wetaskiwin Family Dentists Attention Wetaskiwin dental patients: brushing twice daily may help reduce your risk of heart disease. Scientists have suspected for years that there is a link between gum disease and heart problems. But a recent study bears this out: people with moderate to advanced gum disease are at a greater risk for heart disease than those with healthy gums.

To quote from a Science Daily article:

“Once the data was adjusted for established cardio risk factors, the researchers found that participants who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.”

The Scottish survey is one of many that validates the link between oral health and overall well-being. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

Why is this? It appears that oral health and heart disease are linked by the spread of bacteria that starts in the mouth, and spreads through the body in blood. Once they reach the heart, they can attach to any damaged area and cause inflammation. This, in turn, can lead to cardiovascular conditions.

It doesn’t matter if you are a lean distance runner with a blood pressure of 100 over 60. It doesn’t matter if you are a vegan who has eaten a nutritionally balanced, low-fat diet for the past five years. If you have inflamed gums and cavities, you are at risk for dangerous issues in other areas of the body.

So the take-away is to brush your teeth twice a day for health teeth and gums, and see us at Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney twice a year for cleanings and checkups. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and oral cancer screenings, among other services.

Happy Teeth: General Dentistry in Wetaskiwin

Your Alberta Dentist And Cleaning Your TeethKeeping your teeth clean is a key factor in maintaining a beautiful smile. The general dentistry practiced by Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney in Wetaskiwin is focused on clean, healthy teeth.

Your Partner in Oral Health

One of the benefits of visiting us twice a year is receiving a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing practices. Our dental hygienist will professionally clean and polish your teeth and assess their condition. If need be, we’ll also recommend improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits.

Having a professional dental cleaning is the only way to completely remove plaque (a sticky substance in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and contributes to dental caries).

Don’t Forget Basic Dental Hygiene

Of course, it’s essential that you do your part at home. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from building up, and results in cleaner, healthier teeth.

At the Wetaskiwin office of Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney, we practice general and cosmetic dentistry, and use diagnodent, digital x-rays, and other technical innovations. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Aching Jaw? TMD Treatment in Wetaskiwin

Aching Jaw In Wetaskiwin?

The human jaw is a complex joint – perhaps more complex than most people realize. Known technically as the temporomandibular joint, or TM joint, it is a sliding hinge that connects your jaw to your skull. At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we know a condition called TMD can give people a lot of trouble.

Jaw pain has various causes, such as sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses. When they’re inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If it’s near the jaw, it can give you pain there. This happens a lot with a cold or allergies.

Jaw pain is often due to some type of dental issue, such as TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. In truth, TMD refers to a variety of conditions that affect the TM joints. Symptoms include:

Pain in or around the ear

  • Headaches
  • Neck aches
  • Jaw pain
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
  • Clicking or popping when opening the mouth

TMD is more common in women than in men, especially women of childbearing age. It is also the most common non-dental, chronic facial pain.

Jaw pain should never be ignored. If you suspect you or a loved one has TMD, call Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin to see about treatment. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry.
