Cleaning & Prevention
Regular teeth cleaning, as well as daily oral care, are the key to preventing tooth decay and gum disease. With proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing, you can avoid many expensive dental procedures. The root cause of gum disease and tooth decay is plaque buildup that can be removed with a regular dental cleaning. Routine cleaning also helps detect and prevent the early onset of gum disease, dental pain, or tooth decay.
We provide the following preventive dental services:
- Routine dental cleaning
- Oral examination
- Periodontal examination
Tooth pain is a sign of possible decay or infection, and regular dental visits can help you detect it in its early stage. Preventive dental measures can help you avoid the cost of expensive procedures resulting from fixing severe dental problems.
Our tooth pain restoration treats all types of decay, starting from cavities to missing teeth. We designed our restorative procedures to relieve you from the throbbing pain and rebuild your smile.
Dental implants are an excellent option to consider when replacing missing teeth. They are often more secure and long-lasting than conventional dentures or bridges. They can give you a natural-looking smile and the ability to talk and eat with ease.
Dental implants are surgically placed beneath the gum line in your jaw bone, allowing the bone cells to attach around the implant. To receive dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. Our dentists in Ballantyne can help determine if dental implants are the best solution for you.
If a tooth can no longer be preserved due to severe decay or teeth overcrowding, tooth extraction can be the most viable solution. During an extraction, we will remove the entire tooth from the jaw bone. We will recommend several teeth replacement options to prevent the effects of tooth loss on your gums and remaining teeth. Visit us today, and let’s get that painful tooth removed!
