General Family Dentistry
We believe that good oral health is indicative of positive overall health. For this reason, we offer a number of preventive, family-friendly dental services including dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and more. These general dentistry services help to keep the mouth, teeth, and gums healthy, and provides a first-line defense against tooth decay, gum disease and other conditions that affect the mouth.
When a tooth has become damaged due to decay, composite fillings help to fill the empty cavity. Once the cavity has been cleaned and the bacteria is removed, your dentist will apply a tooth-colored material and will cure it with invisible light. The filling is then polished and shaped, effectively matching the rest of your teeth.
Dental x-rays are preventive, diagnostic tools that allow dental professionals to obtain vital information regarding the health of your teeth, mouth and gums. X-rays are used to check for cavities, gum disease, and other oral abnormalities.
When a tooth nerve has been injured due to trauma or severe decay, a root canal is often necessary to alleviate the pain and to help prevent further infections. During a root canal, your dentist will clean out the infected tooth and fill it with a special material.
Crowns are used when a tooth has been cracked or broken. They help to restore the natural shape, function, and look of the tooth and help leave your mouth looking and feeling its best.
When a patient is missing one or more teeth, bridges are a viable solution to correcting a misaligned bite and creating a beautiful smile. In addition to a poor bite, missing or gaps in teeth can result in gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders, which is also commonly known as TMJ.
Extractions involve the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. This is necessary when the tooth has been broken or damaged by decay and there is too much damage to fix it through a filling, crown, or other treatment. Extractions alleviate pain and prevent the further spread of bacteria or infection.
