Are you ready to work on your smile? General dentistry is a combination of several treatments that can help you work toward each of your dental goals by keeping your teeth safe and healthy. From dental crowns to root canals, there are several treatments that can give you back your smile! If you need dental care in Oklahoma City, OK, call our office today to schedule your first visit!
When a tooth is suffering from decay or severe damage, a simple filling may not provide sufficient protection or repair. In these cases, often the best way to restore the tooth is with a dental crown. Dental crowns are a custom-crafted cap that is permanently fitted over the top of your decaying or damaged tooth. Dental crowns can also be used in combination with other dental treatments like a root canal, dental implant, or bridge, as a way to restore strength, function, and beauty to your smile.
Are you missing one or more teeth? A dental bridge is a great way to fill the empty space in your mouth left by a missing tooth. Using the teeth on either side of your missing tooth, a bridge holds a replacement tooth in place, effectively “bridging the gap” in your smile and restoring its health, beauty, and function.
We use modern technology to deliver effective denture treatments for missing teeth. Our modern dentures utilize top-of-the-line materials, a custom fit, and a natural look and feel to improve your health and restore your ability to chew, speak, and live your life. Modern dentures have come a long-way from treatments from even just a few years ago. They are an attractive, non-invasive, long lasting, and completely custom solution.
Most people will need to fill a dental cavity at some point. While in the past you had to treat decay with a potentially harmful mercury amalgam (or silver) filling, there is now a better method. Composite fillings are a mercury-free way to fight decay and keep your mouth and body healthy. These modern fillings are a completely natural and safe alternative to traditional mercury fillings.
You only get one set of teeth, so whenever possible we will work with you to help you save your natural teeth. However, an extraction may be needed as a result of damaged teeth, extensive decay or extreme tooth crowding. We will review every option available to you before recommending an extraction. When an extraction is needed, our team will help you feel comfortable throughout your entire visit.
While many people have their wisdom teeth extracted during their teenage years, over 20% of adults still have one or more of their wisdom teeth. As you age, these wisdom teeth may cause you to experience pain, soreness, crowded teeth, or other symptoms. Some wisdom teeth stay below the gum line and grow sideways, pushing on your existing teeth. Our team relies on high-tech digital x-rays and years of experience to evaluate your risk of wisdom tooth complications. We can give you the best recommendation for treatment when you begin to feel symptoms of wisdom tooth growth.
When decay reaches the inner layers of your tooth, the result can be an extremely painful toothache, sensitivity to temperature, and a swollen jaw. To eliminate this infection and restore your smile, a root canal may be required. We take a minimally-invasive approach to care and won’t recommend a root canal unless it’s absolutely necessary. If a root canal is the best option, we’ll use the latest dental technology to provide high-quality endodontic treatments to stop advanced tooth decay and infection in its tracks. If you are in need of a root canal in Oklahoma City, OK, or need a second opinion, call our office today!
