Dental Checkups with Dr. Lindsey in Aspen, CO

March 24, 2015

465162307The first and foremost obligation of a family dentist is the prevention of dental problems in the first place. Doing so helps you—the patient—avoid bigger problems and costlier bills further down the road. With this in mind, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and her staff at Aspen Dental Care in Fort Collins, CO, would like to see you and each member of your family every six months for dental checkups. Not only is this in keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, this regularity allows us to carefully monitor your oral health and notice any concerning changes.

Dental Checkups for Healthy Teeth and Gums

When you or a family member comes to Aspen Dental Care for a checkup—and Dr. Lindsey would like to start seeing the youngest in your family around the time when they turn two years old—we will, of course, clean your teeth and remove any plaque buildup. Beyond that, we will closely examine each tooth for any symptoms of decay and when necessary, we’ll take digital x-rays to find imperceptible spots of decay as well as possible infection below the gum line. We’ll also carefully evaluate the health of your gums and check for any of the early signs of gum disease.

If we do find any problems, then we will explain what needs to be done to solve the problem, so you understand the treatment that is required to restore your oral health. For example, in the case of gum disease, we may recommend scaling to remove tartar from below the gum line, root planing to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque can more easily adhere, and if infection is present, then we’ll apply a topical antibiotic treatment. We can repair a cavity with a tooth-colored filling or we’ll restore function to a cracked or severely decayed tooth with a porcelain crown, inlay or onlay.

Schedule an Appointment Today

If it’s time for you or a family member to see the dentist, then call the office Aspen Dental Care today. We conveniently see patients from Fort Collins, CO, as well as the surrounding communities of Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, and Loveland.

Children’s Dentistry in Aspen, CO

February 20, 2015

467777161Is there anything more special than your child’s smile? Well, yes—knowing that smile is healthy, too. And there’s no better month than February to make sure all of your children’s teeth are as healthy as they can be. The American Dental Association has named February National Children’s Dental Health Month. And while this may be the month that is officially devoted to kids’ teeth, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and the team at Aspen Dental Care in Ft. Collins, CO, take your children’s dental health seriously every day of the year.

Children’s Dentistry at Home

Actually, children’s dentistry begins at home with you, the parent. Just as soon as you see those first baby teeth appear, it’s time to start taking care of your children’s dental health. After feeding, use a soft cloth dampened with warm water and wipe your children’s baby teeth and gums. Then, as more teeth erupt and their smiles develop, use a soft toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste to brush their teeth. As they mature, you can teach them to brush their own teeth. And to make sure they know brushing is a good thing, make it a family activity.

Children’s Dentistry in the Office

Around the time of their second birthdays, Dr. Lindsey will want to start seeing your children in the office. We like to call their first visit a Happy Visit, a time to get acquainted with us and the sights and sounds in a dentist’s office. At their first checkup, we’ll carefully examine each tooth and assess their gum health. We’ll also look for any signs of tooth decay.

At some point, Dr. Lindsey will likely recommend a fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens teeth’s enamel, making them better able to fend off decay-causing bacteria. Dental sealants are applied to your children’s molars and provide a solid barrier between their teeth and the acids that cause decay.

Smile at the New Year with Porcelain Veneers in Ft. Collins, CO

January 22, 2015

100047604The New Year has only begun, so there’s time to make one more resolution—smile more! That’s right. Your smile isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the people around you, too. So why not give them your best and brightest smile with porcelain veneers from Aspen Dental Care in Ft. Collins, CO. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and her staff have improved or repaired the smiles of many patients and they can do the same for you.

Your smile may be less than you desire for a variety of reasons:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are chipped
  • Fractured teeth
  • Teeth that are slightly misaligned or misshapen
  • Teeth that have irregular gaps in between them

Whatever the reason, you don’t need to accept your smile as it is. Porcelain veneers can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Porcelain Veneers for You

When you come to Dr. Lindsey for porcelain veneers, the first thing she’ll do is thoroughly examine your overall oral health and make sure you don’t need any restorative treatment before the veneer procedure. The two of you will discuss your vision of a beautiful smile with consideration given to your mouth and facial features.

Then, the procedure will begin and will usually be completed in a couple of appointments. First, we’ll cover your lips and gums with a shield for protection. Dr. Shiloh will prep the teeth receiving veneers by first applying a gentle abrasive that makes the teeth’s surface better able to hold the veneers. Furthermore, this ensures that the veneers will lay flush with your other teeth.

You’ll wear temporaries while your custom-designed, color matched porcelain veneers are created in a cosmetic dental lab. When they’re ready, you’ll return to Aspen Dental Care for Dr. Lindsey to apply the veneers to your teeth. She will trim and polish your new veneers until they look like your real teeth—only better!

Call Our Office Today

If you’d like to learn more about how porcelain veneers can improve your smile, call Aspen Dental Care in Ft. Collins, CO. We also serve patients from Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland and the surrounding communities.

Brighten Your Smile for the New Year with Professional Teeth Whitening from Dr. Lindsey in Ft. Collins, CO

December 22, 2014

99452669Could your smile be any brighter, or whiter? It often seems like, no matter how diligently we brush and floss, we just can’t protect our teeth from staining and discoloration. In many respects, this is true. Our teeth naturally change color over time. Additionally, there are many acidic foods in our daily diets that can change the color of our teeth. While this struggle can be frustrating, there are reliable solutions available. Ultimately, teeth whitening results depend upon your natural tooth color, how stubborn your stains and discoloration have become, and which treatment method you choose. To make an informed decision, schedule a teeth whitening consultation appointment with Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and Aspen Dental Care today. Dr. Lindsey is a trusted Ft. Collins cosmetic and restorative dentist, who can help you find the teeth whitening solution that works best for your unique situation. Aspen Dental Care proudly serves patients throughout Ft. Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and the surrounding communities.

Why do teeth change color?

The internal layers of our teeth naturally darken as we age. Behavioral factors like tobacco use and drinking coffee, soda, tea or wine can also cause staining. Taking certain medications and antibiotics can discolor our teeth as well.

What about teeth whitening toothpastes?

Teeth whitening toothpastes don’t actually whiten your enamel. They contain mild abrasives, but no bleaching agents, so they can only polish away shallow surface stains. If you’re seeking a reliable teeth whitening method, teeth whitening toothpastes are not the best option.

Do over-the-counter teeth whitening products really work?

Over-the- counter products can come as whitening gels, strips, rinses, or trays. Though they contain bleaching agents to whiten teeth, they are heavily diluted. Therefore it can take several weeks of daily use before you see any changes at all. There is also a high risk of gum irritation when you expose your teeth to these bleaching agents for prolonged periods. As a rule of thumb, yellowed enamel responds well to whitening, while brownish-colored teeth do not. Gray stains caused by smoking, antibiotics, or dental fluorosis (ingestion of too much fluoride), may need to be addressed with cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers treatments. Dr. Lindsey can help you make this determination.

Ft. Collins Teeth Whitening Appointments

Professional tooth whitening is the most consistently successful teeth whitening method. With professional teeth whitening you can avoid tooth sensitivity and damage to the roots from DIY bleaching mistakes. Dr. Lindsey can also better predict when you may have problems with the procedure. Don’t take a chance with unproven teeth whitening methods. Make an appointment for professional teeth whitening from Dr. Lindsey at Aspen Dental Care today. Dr. Lindsey will help you achieve the teeth whitening results you deserve. Aspen Dental Care proudly restores smiles daily throughout Ft. Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and nearby areas.

Dental Care for Senior Citizens in Ft. Collins, CO

November 14, 2014

101472006As we move through life, most of us can’t help but notice changes in our body and often, consequently, our heath. But did you know that changes are happening in the mouth, too? Naturally, these can affect a person’s oral health. Therefore, proper dental hygiene at home combined with professional care is vitally important for seniors. The office of Dr. Shiloh Lindsey in Ft. Collins, CO, is proud to include caring general dentistry designed especially for adults and senior citizens.

As people age, normal dental concerns may become more pronounced. For instance, seniors are more prone to periodontal disease (gum disease). This may be due to a lifetime of poor dental hygiene, ill-fitting oral appliances, or diseases such as cancer or diabetes. Also, teeth’s supporting bone structure is more likely to shift as we grow older, making an uneven bite or tooth loss more likely. Other conditions that may develop include inflamed gum tissue, dry mouth or oral thrush.

The most important step in preventing these oral health concerns is regular check-ups with Dr. Lindsey. She and her staff will not only clean and polish your teeth, but at the time of your check-up they’ll also examine your mouth for the early signs of gum disease, conduct a cancer screening procedure, check for tooth decay and, if necessary, take x-rays in order to see decay that would otherwise not be visible to the naked eye. Dr. Lindsey can also offer suggestions to make seniors’ dental hygiene routines at home more convenient. For example, for people with limited manual dexterity due to arthritis, there are specially designed toothbrushes with larger handles that are easier for seniors to grasp.

If you or a senior citizen you care for is due for a visit to the dentist, call the office of Dr. Shiloh Lindsey in Ft. Collins, CO, today. We can take care of all of your general and preventive dentistry needs. Our office conveniently serves patients in Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland and the surrounding communities.

Find Relief in Your Pain with Root Canal Therapy

October 15, 2014

489085765One thing that is very difficult to live with is pain. Whether the pain is slight or significant, it can really take a toll on your mind, body, and heart. One pain that is very difficult to go day in and day out with is tooth pain. The throbbing, constant pain can cripple someone, leaving them unable to eat, speak, or smile is confidence and pain-free. Though many people may be willing to write off the pain, there could be many reasons as to why your tooth is causing you discomfort, and it could be severe. Thankfully, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey is able to alleviate her patients of their tooth pain by offering root canal therapy at her Fort Collins, CO dental office.

Root canal therapy is often times needed when a cavity has not been handled or when there has been some sort of dental trauma. The pain is caused by bacteria making their way into the pulp of your tooth, and the pulp houses many nerves. When that happens, the result is relentless discomfort and pressure. Though root canal therapy has gotten a bad reputation over the years, with today’s modern technology, having root canal therapy performed is so comfortable, many patients doze off!

When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Lindsey will address the tooth by removing the pulp and the bacteria. She will then fill it with a bio-compatible material and cap it with a crown, all with the effort to ensure no other bacteria makes its way back into your tooth. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a healthier smile and free of pain! If you would like Dr. Lindsey to help alleviate your pain with root canal therapy, contact our office today!

If you would like to schedule your appointment with Dr. Shiloh Lindsey, contact our Fort Collins, CO dental office. We are able to take care of all of your general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry needs. We are proud to serve patients from Fort Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and the surrounding communities.

Gum Disease and Your Heart

August 15, 2014

460469071Like many things in life, there are things that work in tandem in order to produce a smooth-running operation. Whether it is parts of a car or the components within a cell phone, you will often see several parts making up a whole, working system. Unfortunately, if one of those aspects is damaged, it has the potential to throw the entire system out of whack. The same theory can be applied to your smile, especially with your gums. Having beautiful, healthy gums is essential to having a healthy smile, and if your gums are compromised, it can have damaging effects. If you are suffering from gum disease, it has the ability to affect other areas of your body, especially your heart.

Gum disease occurs when harmful bacteria has made its way into the soft tissues of your mouth. If left to its own devices, the bacteria attacking your gums can enter your bloodstream, having a clear shot to your heart. Bacteria found in your mouth can also be found in your arteries, and they can slowly clog them while also decreasing the blood flow to your heart. Your body is built with natural defense mechanisms, and one of them is swelling. The bacteria found in your mouth have the capacity to cause your blood cells to swell, which essentially increases your risk of a blood clot.

Easy ways you can prevent the bacteria in your mouth from causing bodily damage is by taking the time out each day to brush and floss. Though it may seem simple, brushing and flossing are excellent ways to decreasing the amount of bacteria in your smile, making it less likely to enter your blood stream. Keeping this knowledge and tip in mind, you are sure to be on track for better oral and heart health!

If you would like to schedule your appointment with Dr. Shiloh Lindsey, contact our Fort Collins, CO dental office. We are able to take care of all of your general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry needs. We are proud to serve patients from Fort Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and the surrounding communities.
