If you are looking for a dentist for your household, you should consider family dentistry in Nashua, NH. Visit Nashua Smile Makers, where Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta can provide expert dental care for your family.

What Is A Family Dentist?

A family dentist can provide the same service as a general dentist. The difference is, a family dentist will provide services for the entire family — regardless of their age. Your entire family can all visit the same dentist.

Why You Should Use A Family Dentistry Practice

A family dentist is a great choice for your family for many reasons. Let’s look at the top reasons to consider family dentistry in Nashua, NH.

  • Different generations go to the same dentist
  • Children can visit a dentist at the same time as parents
  • Little children can visit the dentist at the same time as older siblings
  • One dentist can monitor the condition of family health
  • Easier to keep track of dental history over a lifetime
  • No separate dental trips

Going to different medical or dental appointments can be time-consuming. When you choose a family dentist, your household can all go to the same office for every visit. Depending on the availability at your dentist's office, the whole household can go to the dentist on the same day.

One dentist can monitor the dental health and progress of your growing child. Your young child will most likely feel more comfortable seeing the same dentist over time. Watching other family members visit the dentist without fear is good for a little kid as well.

Many generations can get dental care at the same office. You can go for teeth cleaning while your aging parent or grandparent can get dentures. A family dentist gets to know your family and can make going to the dentist more comfortable. Going to the same place is easier for everyone.

Nashua Smile Makers is a great source for family dentistry in Nashua, NH. Dr.Guerriero and Dr. Colletta will provide excellent care for the whole family. Call us at (603) 882-3727 for an appointment today.

Tags: Bleeding Gums  

If you’ve ever brushed your teeth or gone to the dentist and noticed that your gums begin to bleed, you may need to take some extra steps in your oral hygiene routine to stop the bleeding. Your dentists, Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta at Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH, can advise you on common ways to prevent your gums from bleeding and keep your smile healthy and strong.

How to Prevent Your Gums from Bleeding

If you’ve been brushing your teeth and notice that your gums begin to bleed, that may be an early sign of gum disease and you’ll need to make changes to stop your gums from bleeding in the future. It’s important that you have a proper and thorough oral hygiene routine and are keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as you possibly can. Your oral hygiene routine should consist of daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular visits to your dentist in Nashua, NH, for checkups and routine cleanings. You can also rinse your mouth with a mouthwash to help rid your gums of any lurking bacteria that you may have missed while brushing and flossing.

You may also need to make some lifestyle changes to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. An important thing to do is to stop smoking. Smoking is a major cause of gum disease and can lower your body’s immune system, making it more susceptible to disease and bacteria. If you’ve also noticed that your gums continue to bleed and are swollen, it may help to rinse your mouth out with warm salt water to fight off irritation from bacteria in your gums.

Contact Your Dentist Today!

Stopping your gums from bleeding is one of the most important steps in keeping your smile healthy for years to come. Contact Dr. Guerriero and Dr. Colletta at Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH, at (603) 882-3727 to book an appointment.

Dental implants are an excellent method for restoring your smile, and they have many benefits compared to other treatments. Dental implants are unmatched in durability against other types of restorations, but you do have to take proper care to ensure their longevity.

If you would like to learn more about the best ways to maintain your dental implants please get in contact with your local Nashua, NH, dental implant experts Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta of Nashua Smile Makers.

Good Habits

The best part about dental implants is that the end result looks, acts, and feels just like your natural teeth. This means that cleaning them is not very different either.

Experts advise on using soft-bristled toothbrushes because they are beneficial for all of your teeth. brushing and flossing are necessary to remove the accumulated plaque before it hardens into tartar. Regular dental cleanings and checkups will round out your dental hygiene routine. Your dentist can clean your teeth, especially the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, at your check-up appointment.

Bad Habits

Cavities do not affect your new tooth as they do your natural teeth, which can cause some to lower their guard. But good dental habits are still important because gum disease remains a concern. It can affect the structure of your mouth that holds your teeth in place.

A diet that increases your risk of developing cavities on your natural teeth can put you at risk for gum disease in general and so can smoking.

Smoking can not only contribute to the likelihood you will develop gum disease, but the habit is itself often a barrier for obtaining dental implants in the first place. Many experts warn against smoking until two months after the implants have healed. Some dentists may not admit you as a candidate for the procedure if you are a regular smoker since it can lengthen the healing time and may cause the implants to fail.

Dental Implants in Nashua, NH

Dental implants have many benefits, but they also require the largest initial investment of time, and sometimes money. The best way to get the most out of your investment is to properly care for them. If you are curious about the procedure or want to know how to make them last as long as possible then come into the office for a visit.

Want a whiter brighter smile? People want to smile confidently but discolored, cracked and chipped teeth don't usually add to someone's confidence. Cosmetic dentistry restores teeth and rejuvenates your smile, and Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta can help at their Nashua, NH, office.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Not all cosmetic procedures are created the same. Meaning, some are purely cosmetic, while other provide restorative or preventative care. Cosmetic dentistry isn't just for adults, but for children too, and is generally used to improves the appearance/aesthetic of teeth and gums in terms of their color, position, shape and alignment.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

  • Cosmetic Bonding repairs small chips or cracks in teeth that are a result of poor habits, like teeth grinding.
     
  • Dental Implants is a long-term solution for people who have lost teeth. Dental implants restore your smile and reinforce the jawbone to prevent bone deterioration.
     
  • Invisalign Clear Aligners are probably one of the best ways to straighten teeth for older teens and young adults because it's a discreet orthodontic treatment that fixes slight gaps and crooked teeth.
     
  • Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin oral appliances that your Nashua dentist adheres to the surface of your teeth to hide large chips and cracks, discoloration, and reshape teeth.
     
  • Teeth Whitening brighten faded or discolored teeth to rejuvenate your smile, especially if you're an avid coffee or tea drinker.
     
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings restore cavities left in the wake of decay but the advantage of tooth-colored fillings is that no one will know the fillings even exist because they blend in with your natural teeth.

Who should you contact?
