Do you have a dark, faded or yellow smile? Would you like a younger, brighter look? At Huhn Dental in Orlando, FL, Dr. Douglas Huhn and his team offer safe teeth whitening treatments that really work. Make a wonderful change to your personal appearance, and improve your self-confidence through this economical cosmetic dentistry service.

How dental stains occur

Over time, your tooth enamel acquires stains of all kinds--from tobacco stains, to discoloration from coffee, tea and dark foods, to intrinsic stains from prescriptions or oral injuries. While some stains ruin tooth surfaces and require refurbishment with crowns or veneers, many smiles may be lightened easily with better brushing and flossing at home. Still others require professional teeth whitening.

What you can do

At Huhn Dental in Orlando, FL, Dr. Huhn examines many teen and adult patients for in-office and take-home teeth whitening. Basically, if your teeth and gums are free of decay and periodontal problems, you can undergo this highly popular treatment.

You'll join millions of people who take years off their smiles by spending just a little time and money on whitening. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) states that whitening is the most asked for aesthetic service in dental offices in the United States today.

The whitening process

After your qualifying exam at Huhn Dental in Orlando, FL, you can choose one of two whitening options:

  1. Take-home whitening trays are custom-fit to deliver concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to top and bottom teeth. Use this option on your own time in the privacy of your own home. Dr. Huhn will tell you how long to wear your trays each day and how many days are required.
  2. In-office whitening applies a more powerful gel to teeth in the smile zone. Done in about an hour right in the treatment room, this whitening method improves tooth color by several shades,. You'll experience no ill effects, such as gum or tooth sensitivity.

Keeping those teeth bright

Of course, good oral hygiene habits benefit both your dental health and your personal appearance. So, brush twice daily, and floss around and between teeth each day. These practices remove the organic matter which decay teeth, lead to gum disease and yes, discolor your tooth enamel.

Additionally, limit your daily coffee, or drink it with a straw. Buffer acidic foods with cheese or a starchy food choice. And, above all, stop smoking or using smokeless tobacco. Neither is good for your health, and the resulting stains are exceptionally stubborn.

Finally, see Dr. Huhn twice a year for an exam and cleaning. He may recommend an occasional whitening touch-up, too.

You brush and floss your teeth carefully every day. You're conscientious about your diet. Why should you go to the dentist for a cleaning? At the Orlando, FL, the family dentistry offices of Drs. Douglas, Clete, and Ryan Huhn, our professional team offers the finest in hygienic cleanings. Plus, the accompanying exams perform many important checks to ensure your healthy smile stays that way.

Guarding your oral health

That's what a professional cleaning accomplishes, says, Dear Doctor. Though important to your self-confidence, a bright smile means more than highly-polished, sparkling teeth. It means your hygienist partners with your Orlando, FL, family dentist in ensuring your smile is cavity-free and your gums--pink and healthy.

Besides scaling your teeth with manual instruments or ultrasonic scalers to remove plaque, tartar, and their associated oral bacteria, your hygienist takes digital X-rays. This precise imaging assesses your bone structure and detects hidden problems.

Also, your dental hygienist looks at your soft tissues for signs of gum disease and recommends ways to improve your home oral hygiene routine. This advice may include a change in a toothbrush, better ways to floss around your back teeth, and more.

Also, she may advise preventive services, such as fluoride treatments, to ward off tooth decay and dental sensitivity. These simple services are good for both children and adults who desire an additional layer of protection against oral health issues.

The threat of oral cancer

Both your hygienist and Dr. Huhn check your mouth for signs of oral cancer. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America report that many people mistake oral cancer for cold sores or gum disease. That's why a practiced professional eye is so important to your oral health. Oral cancer can be treated successfully if detected in its earliest stages.

Clean and long-lasting

See your family dentist in his Orlando, FL, office twice a year for a check-up and for that all-important hygienic cleaning. The CDC says preventive dental care influences both your oral and your systemic health. Contact Dr. Clete Huhn, Dr. Ryan Huhn, or Dr. Douglas Huhn of Huhn Dental at (407) 422-6281 for an appointment.

If you have a dental emergency, it's important that you see a dentist in Orlando, FL, immediately. Your quick action can help save your tooth. Dr. Doug Huhn, Dr. Clete Huhn, and Dr. Ryan Huhn and their caring staff provide a variety of dental services to help you in any dental emergency. Keep reading to learn more about emergency dental services.

What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any dental situation that requires immediate attention because of severe pain, bleeding, or high risk of infection. Emergency services are also required to save a tooth that is at risk.

If you have an accident and your tooth is knocked out, you immediately realize that it is an emergency situation. Other times, you may not understand what is going on with your tooth. You only know that you are experiencing severe pain or discomfort. It's important that you seek emergency dental treatment in this type of case as well.

Loose Tooth

People with adult teeth should see their dentist right away if they discover a loose tooth. Adult teeth should be sturdy. They shouldn't loosen because of normal biting or chewing. If you have a loose tooth, it could be a sign of tooth decay. A visit to the dentist will help determine the issue.

Fractured or Cracked Tooth

If you have a fractured or cracked tooth, schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. This is because when you have a fractured or cracked tooth, you usually have an internal tooth issue as well. Your dentist will order an x-ray of the tooth to diagnose the problem.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Accidents happen, and sometimes this leads to a tooth that is knocked out of your mouth. If you have a knocked-out adult tooth, see your dentist right away. While waiting to be seen by the dentist, you can preserve your tooth by trying to place it back into the socket. Avoid touching the tooth root. The goal is to keep your tooth moist. If you can't place the tooth back into the socket, place it into saliva or milk until your Orlando, FL, dentist can see you.

Excessive Bleeding

When your gums bleed, it could mean that you have gum disease. Excessive bleeding from your gums isn't normal. A dentist will examine your gums and teeth to determine the cause of the bleeding. If you don't receive treatment, you can end up with serious issues such as tooth loss.

Schedule Your Appointment

Are you experiencing severe pain, loose teeth, or excessive gum bleeding? Contact Dr. Doug Huhn, Dr. Clete Huhn, and Dr. Ryan Huhn for emergency dental treatment. Contact Huhn Dental in Orlando, FL by calling (407) 422-6281.
