More Detailed Information About General Dentistry
Preventive Dentistry services are provided in an effort to prevent gum disease, tooth decay or other dental diseases or injuries. Most dental diseases are completely preventable and we like to work closely with you to stop dental disease and injuries. Regular dental checkups, dental cleanings, fluoride, tooth-cleaning instruction, fissure sealants, sports mouth guards and nightguards are all examples of Preventive Dentistry.
Restorative Dentistry is the branch of dentistry related to repairing the damage done to teeth by decay, fracture or abnormal development. Most people are familiar with dental fillings, which are placed into cavities (holes) in the teeth once all the decay has been removed. Teeth that have been severely damaged or weakened might need to be fixed using larger fillings made out of porcelain or gold (these are called dental inlays or dental onlays, depending on how much tooth they cover) or even dental crowns.
If a tooth is damaged to the point where it cannot be saved, it may be removed and replaced with a dental bridge, denture or dental implant.
Emergency Dentistry describes the services provided to individuals with an unexpected dental problem. This might be pain, damage to a tooth or loss of a tooth as a result of injury. Some dental emergencies require Restorative Dental treatment. Some emergencies require root canal treatment (for a dental abscess or severe fracture of a tooth) or extraction (where the tooth is removed from the mouth in order to treat the emergency).
