When you come to our office for general dental care, you will receive personalized care for all of your dental needs. Whether you are interested in replacing your missing teeth with dentures or you want to improve your smile with porcelain veneers, we are here for you.
There are many treatment options for cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry provides aesthetic benefits, while restorative dentistry is more focused on restoring oral function. General dentistry offers solutions for both of these concerns.
For example, if your teeth have several cavities, restorative dental treatment may be appropriate. A filling, dental crown, or dental bridge can be used to treat the tooth. A cosmetic dental treatment wouldn’t be needed to improve your oral health, but it could enhance the appearance of your smile. A dental bridge or dental implant may be recommended to replace missing teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten the smile and improve bite function. It can also be used to correct jaw alignment and bite problems. It’s ideal for patients of all ages who want to maintain their smile’s health and beauty.
Endodontics offers patients a way to care for their smiles. It focuses on treating damage and restoring your teeth from decay. Root canal therapy involves making a hole in a severely decayed tooth and extracting the infected pulp. This keeps the infection from spreading and saves the infected tooth from being extracted.
Oral surgery is a broad category of procedures focused on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects of the head, neck, face, mouth, and jaw. Some of the most common oral surgery procedures include:
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Orthodontic surgery
- Cleft palate repair
- Facial trauma treatment
Periodontics is focused on treating problems affecting the gums. This will help patients maintain healthy gums and teeth. Periodontal treatment involves removing the plaque and tartar deposits from the surface of the teeth and tooth roots, getting rid of the infected gum tissues, and grafting healthy tissues in their place if necessary.
Prosthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on dental prostheses. Prosthodontists specialize in comprehensive dental care, including the diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, and health of patients with conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes.
