dental cleanings and examsCleanings and Exams

We believe regular cleanings and exams, usually done twice a year, are absolutely crucial for maintaining a healthy mouth. People who brush and floss regularly may think they can skip these steps. However, much more is involved in the cleanings and exams than just cleaning your teeth. A cleaning by one of our registered dental hygienists not only removes plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach places, but it allows the hygienist time to thoroughly examine your overall oral health. This exam includes checking the gums for potential problems and using x-rays to ensure you don't have cavities or tooth decay. Catching potential risks early on can prevent more serious problems from occurring. Schedule a cleaning exam or learn more about what we offer here.

dental x raysDental X-Rays

X-rays have been used in dentistry since the early 1900s. Today, technology in digital radiography has allowed us to capture a detailed image with as much as 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. TAD believes the digital x-ray is an important tool used to detect hidden dental abnormalities or potential problems. Abscesses, bone loss, tumors, decay, and poor root positions are just a few of the things, not visible to the naked eye, that can be caught and treated. Because the digital images are available immediately, the patient is able to make informed decisions about treatment. Learn more about digital dental x-rays here. If it's been a while since you've had x-rays, don't wait any longer, contact us today!

tooth fillingFillings

A filling becomes necessary when a tooth is cracked or is damaged due to decay. Taglia Dentistry's goal is to restore the tooth back to its normal shape and functions. Our process begins with removing the decayed area and cleaning the area thoroughly. We offer several choices in materials used in fillings. Composite resins can match the tooth color and are preferable when the filling occurs toward the front of the mouth and is easily visible. During the consultation we will discuss all of the options available to you and assist you in making the best choice for you. Schedule a consultation now! or click to learn more about fillings.

sports mouth guardsMouth Guards for Sports

At Taglia Dentistry we recognize that dental injuries while playing sports is a common occurrence. We believe, as does the American Dental Association, that using a properly fitted mouth guard while playing sports is the best way to reduce the amount and severity of sports-related dental traumas. The mouth guard acts as a protective barrier that dissipates and distributes the forces that occur during an impact. If these forces are successfully minimized, the severity of an injury is reduced. Whether young or old, we are committed to promoting oral health and safety for all sports participants. Contact us now or learn more here.

night guardNight Guards

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can lead to many long lasting problems. But fortunately there is a solution called night guards. The purpose of a night guard is to hold the jaw in a neutral position. While in this position the top teeth will not come into contact with the lower teeth. Since everyone's mouth is different, Taglia Advanced Dentistry (aka TAD) believes that each patient should get the individual treatment they need. This includes discussing the options of different types of night guards, to taking an impression of the teeth to ensure a perfect fit. Learn more about night guards. Stop your grinding right away.

tooth crownPorcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are an excellent way to strengthen, protect, and enhance the appearance of teeth that have been severely chipped, cracked, damaged, or discolored. With a crown, you won't have to worry about any aches, pains, and discomfort associated with a sensitive or injured tooth. You also won't have to worry about tooth decay and other tooth damage being visible to others. Tooth-colored porcelain crowns fit snugly over you existing teeth and are virtually undetectable... Learn more about porcelain crowns or contact us today!

root canalRoot Canal

If the dental pulp within a tooth is injured or infected, the tooth dies because it is unable to receive the necessary nutrients. In this situation, the only way to save the tooth is a root canal. During a root canal, also known as Endodontics treatment, the dentist drills into the tooth and extracts the problem-causing pulp. He then cleans the pulp chamber and caps the tooth with a protective, aesthetic crown. The procedure is performed under general anesthetic to ensure your comfort and ease... Learn more about root canals or contact our clinic today.

space maintainersSpace Maintainers

A Space Maintainer becomes necessary when a child loses a baby tooth, yet the adult tooth is not ready to take its place. Without spacers, surrounding teeth may shift and end up filling the gap, leaving no room for the adult tooth when it erupts. Spacers also provide the guidance needed when the adult tooth does erupt so it doesn't grow in crooked or at the wrong angle. Each spacer is made using an impression of the mouth to ensure the best fit. Find out more about space maintainers here or get in touch today!

This complex joint that manipulates the jaw can be the source of problems such as clicking, locking, or popping of the jaw. Some who experience jaw problems will also report headaches, earaches, neck aches, and other facial pain associated with temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). If you are suffering from TMD and would like treatment, our office has a number of conservative options for dealing with TMD. Learn more about TMD or Contact our Elmwood Park clinic today!
