He offers comprehensive care to restore comfort, health, and stability to your bite- and your long-term dental health. Learn about the common dental problems that we can fix below.
Bleeding Gums: Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? You may have gum inflammation (gingivitis), or developing gum disease (periodontitis). Dr. Ribitch will assess your teeth and gums in order to determine whether you need to be treated with antibacterial rinses, laser therapy, gum surgery, or scaling and root planing.
Crooked Teeth: Do you want a straighter and more balanced smile? Dr. Ribitch offers Invisalign, porcelain veneers, or tooth bonding to his patients. Crooked teeth can increase the risk of tooth decay and tooth loss, so it is important to get treatment quickly.
Missing Teeth: Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures are all great restorative options. Dr. Ribitch will work with an oral surgeon after determining which treatment is best for you and your oral health.
Teeth Grinding: Do you clench or grind your teeth? Stop bruxism at the source with oral appliance therapy. Worn during the night, oral appliances protect teeth and prevent teeth from further damage. After stopping teeth clenching and grinding, restorative options can then be taken into account.
There are many factors influencing your oral health. Understanding how to identify your individual risk factors can play an important role in reducing gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental problems.
