The Health And Beauty Consequences Of Missing Teeth

Spanish Springs tooth implants

Hello. I am Dr. Shane Sykes. Thanks for visiting my blog. Today’s post focuses on missing teeth and bone health.

Our teeth have many important functions. We need them to chew our food, talk, and smile. But have you ever considered their role in holding up your face? When we lose teeth, the bone around the site of the extraction begins to shrink. This, in turn, causes our facial muscles to sink in and collapse.

We sometimes think of bone as a solid mass, unlike the softer tissues in our body. In reality, below the seemingly rock-hard surface, bone tissue is full of small holes – kind of like a sponge. In the interior bone tissue, the bone is continually regenerating itself. This essential process is sometimes called “bone metabolism.” In the jaw bone, the movements of the teeth stimulate this process of rebuilding. When the tooth is gone, the bone starts to shrink as blood flow is reduced.

Reno people with missing teeth not only have an unsightly gap in their smile, they begin to look older because of the bone recession and eventual facial sagging.  It is not simply an issue of attractiveness – it poses serious health dangers. It may become difficult to chew food, making it harder to get adequate nutrition. Mental health can also be affected when a patient with missing teeth loses confidence in themself or withdraws from social situations because they are self-conscious about their smile.

Modern Reno dentistry to the rescue. Dental implant technology provides a tooth restoration solution that maintains healthy bone metabolism while providing near-normal tooth function. For patients missing many (or all) of their teeth, it may not be possible to replace every single tooth with an implant. In many of these cases, dental implants can be used to provide an anchor for a partial denture.

What if your bone has shrunken so much that there is not enough to support an implant? You may be a candidate for bone augmentation or bone grafting. This procedure is routinely completed with success in the Sparks area and can be done with your own bone, synthetic bone material or bone from a cadaver.

If you are missing teeth, don’t resign yourself to dentures. Tooth implants can provide a unforgettable smile! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Shane Sykes by calling 775-525-5692.

4 Teeth All In A Row For Nevada

Reno dental financing

Perhaps getting everything lined up for a breathtaking smile can take a bit of finagling. Maybe you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry. At The Reno Dentist, Dr. Shane Sykes is commonly seen working miracles on all types of smiles.

Just the unknown cost of dental implants or the price of invisible braces can paralyze a person from making the move to improve. Ask us about these and the price of dental restorations in general. Call today for a consultation and discussion about restoring your genuine smile of confidence. We’ll plan with you and recommend the best and most straightforward path forward.

Here are 4 ways to get all your ducks (or teeth) in a row for your new smile:

Tooth #1 The Two Front Teeth
Knowing how to get to us will be essential. Find our own “two front doors” at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 in Reno, Nevada. Jot it down; put it in your phone or GPS; do whatever you have to do. Especially if you’re out in Sparks. We look forward to seeing our patients coming from the Carson City, Spanish Springs, and Virginia City areas.

Tooth #2 The Wisdom Tooth
Do a little research. Image search for before and after smiles and see what’s possible. A little wisdom will go a long way. But, no worries, we’ll take care of educating you about the possibilities if the research is out of your reach. We want our patients wise about the care they can receive.

Tooth #3 The Canine Tooth
Rest assured you are not barking up the wrong tree. Just as a sampling, we offer these services: dentures, Invisalign, root canals, porcelain veneers, and wisdom teeth extraction. It’s likely we are just who you need.

Tooth #4 The Sweet Tooth
Talking with our sweet and knowledgeable staff will be a superb experience. Let them set you up. (775) 525-5692

Reno Dynamic Dental Duo: Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Reno Teeth Whitening and Veneers Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in Reno and throughout Nevada.

Numerous ads for whitening products in our local Reno media contain terms such as ‘white brite’, ’22 carbamide peroxide’ and ‘peroxide teeth’. They look tempting, but how do you separate tooth bleaching fact from fiction?

First, and especially for our local Reno Nevada patients, we recommend talking to Shane Sykes DMD at The Reno Dentist at our Reno office. Just because teeth whitening products are readily available in Spanish Springs and Virginia City, it doesn’t mean they are all safe or appropriate for every person. Getting a professional opinion is a good first step.

Don’t be fooled by smile whitening hype and risk damage, especially if you need tetracycline teeth whitening. If you have existing cosmetic dental work such as crowns, bonding, partial dentures or bridge work, it is especially important to talk to a Sparks dental professional about worry-free dentistry teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening kits are not the only way to quickly improve your smile in Spanish Springs. Many of your Virginia City and Carson City neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. There are several brands of veneers such as Lumineers by Cerinate, da Vinci and Mac. We can help you decide on which is best for you.

Veneers are sometimes called ‘instant orthodontics’ because they can correct tooth misalignment and gaps as well as provide instant teeth whitening.

Porcelain veneers can also fix chipped teeth and cover stains. The vast majority of Reno veneer recipients are extremely pleased with the results.

Why Is Dry Mouth Dangerous For Reno Dental Patients?

Why Is Dry Mouth Dangerous For Reno Dental Patients?Hello, welcome to the The Reno Dentist blog. Today we are going to talk about Dry Mouth, an unpleasant condition that can actually affect oral health.

Reduction of saliva flow resulting in a dry mouth is a more common issue among older Reno adults, however, people of all ages experience the symptoms of dry mouth at one time or another. These symptoms include a dry, red tongue, difficulty swallowing, and persistent sore throat.

Sometimes dry mouth is caused by a disease or infection, but a more frequent cause of dry mouth is prescription medications.

Decongestants, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and painkillers (all used extensively in Reno) are just some of the drugs that list ‘dry mouth’ as a common side effect.

It is common for allergy-prone The Reno Dentist dental patients to complain of dry mouth when they start taking antihistamines during the Sparks hay fever season.

Aside from being an uncomfortable nuisance, untreated dry mouth can cause tooth damage. Adequate saliva is needed to keep the mouth lubricated, wash the food from teeth, and neutralize the acidic environment caused by plaque. Extensive cavities can arise in the absence of saliva for dental patients with chronic dry mouth.

If you are unsure of the cause of your dry mouth, or if you are looking for dry mouth treatments, call The Reno Dentist to schedule an appointment.

One of my Spanish Springs patients who had been embarrassed by his damaged teeth for years says his new youthful smile has given him greater confidence and ambition.
