A large part of this includes preventative measures to ensure your overall health is in the best shape possible.
General Dentistry Services
Our team provides exceptional preventative care, diagnostics, and basic treatments to include:
- Teeth examination and cleaning – Beginning with an oral examination, the staff will hear out any of your concerns and goals while assessing your oral health, by directly screening your teeth and gums as well as analyzing x-rays. We utilize advanced equipment to reach every surface and crevice of the teeth to remove plaque and any other disease-causing bacteria.
- Crowns & bridges – These are devices that fit over an existing tooth or implant which are cemented in place. Gaps due to a missing tooth cause the remaining teeth to shift, which may result in gum diseases and TMJ disorders. Crowns are recommended for larger fillings and chipped teeth, as well as to cover discoloration. Dental bridges are recommended to help preserve the structure of your existing teeth by bridging the gaps between missing, loose, and shifting teeth.
- Gum disease treatment – Periodontal disease is one of the most common oral diseases in the country. Fortunately, we know exactly how to prevent, treat, and maintain healthy smiles.
Whenever possible, we strive to preserve our patients’ natural teeth. However, if there is a severe infection, injury, or other damage, tooth extraction may become necessary. We offer quality care that is personalized for our patients, including tooth extraction and other emergency dental services.
A tooth may need to be removed when it is:
- Decayed beyond repair
- Damaged beyond repair
- Abscessed or severely infected
- Fractured or the root is fractured
- Affected by gum disease and bone loss
