Our General Dentistry Services

Dental Cleanings, Preventative Care, & Exams

During a routine cleaning, our staff will remove plaque and calculus buildup on your teeth. Because cavities don’t always exhibit symptoms, we’ll check for decay by taking 3D digital x-rays.

If you struggle with tooth sensitivity, we can administer fluoride treatment to help strengthen your enamel. During your routine cleaning, we’ll check for signs of oral cancer, gum disease, and we’ll also screen for sleep apnea.

Fillings & Root Canal Treatment

We use composite fillings to restore the natural color of your teeth after removing decay and plaque buildup.

During a root canal, our doctor will remove the infected pulp, clean the inside of the tooth, and then seal the area. Some patients require dental implants and crown placement for full restoration.

Sealants

Children are prone to cavities, but sealants provide a protective barrier against them. These thin, safeguarding layers of flowable resin typically cover the back molars. They’re most effective when placed in areas that are harder to reach, where bacteria can accumulate.

Dental Implants

If you’re missing teeth, dental implants may be the right solution for you. Implants are titanium rods that make durable replacements for teeth. When bonded with a dental crown, they can help restore your natural smile.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Damaged, discolored, or rotting teeth may not always respond to bonding treatment or fillings. In cases like these, utilizing dental crowns and bridges are often the best option.

Dental crowns cover and protect individual teeth. Bridges cover multiple, adjoining teeth, and often protect teeth that are severely impacted by gum disease and decay. We use digital scanning to create dental crown and bridge impressions, eliminating mess.

General Tooth Extraction

Drastic changes to the mouth can sometimes require tooth extraction. When a rotting tooth doesn’t respond to restorative treatment, or if a patient is experiencing severe pain, extraction may be required.

If you think you may need a tooth pulled, contact us today.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Between the ages of 17 and 30, a set of adult molars, known as wisdom teeth, will start to grow in. If they don’t have enough room to grow, they can collide against the other molars in your mouth.

At The Dental Practice, we perform wisdom tooth extraction. Our team can also monitor your wisdom teeth early on and determine when you’ll need them removed.

Full & Partial Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. We customize your full or partial dentures so they fit perfectly and restore your natural smile.

Gum Treatment

Improper brushing and poor oral hygiene can cause gum disease. Our professional dental cleaning can treat gingivitis and mild periodontitis. We can perform root planing and scaling in cases of severe periodontitis.
