GENERAL DENTAL PROCEDURES
Panoramic X-ray System
This wall mounted panoramic unit has virtually no footprint, is ideal for small practices and very compact for a stylish design. It contains exceptional image quality and resolution.
In the past, getting a cavity meant marrying your smile with a silver filling. Now, we can use composite fillings to treat your cavities. Because composite fillings can be shaded to match the natural color of your tooth, no one will be able to tell you got a filling and your smile will still look wonderful.
Cleanings and Prevention
Getting regular professional dental cleanings is an absolute must if you want to keep your teeth healthy and prevent a variety of dental problems later on down the line. 63 Family Dental is an excellent place to get your dental cleanings and preventative care, because we know how to clean teeth gently and thoroughly for a comfortable and relaxing experience.
Exams and Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends that patients get their teeth professionally cleaned every six months. At 63 Family Dental, we provide the deep cleanings you need to keep plaque and tartar at bay. Each cleaning also comes with an exam from an expert dentist, to check for cavities and other oral health problems.
Dental X-rays are a crucial part of good preventative dental care, because they enable your dentist to check for various dental problems such as decay, abscesses, bone loss, and tumors and provide the necessary attention at an early stage. We take full mouth and bitewing dental x-rays at our offices.
Because we are so dedicated to preventative care, we make a point of ensuring that each and every patient understands their responsibilities as to home care for their teeth. We provide advice about oral hygiene products and techniques that you can use on a daily basis to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
We provide prevention and treatment for periodontal disease, aka gum disease. With our help, you can improve conditions like bleeding gums, loose teeth, bad breath, receding gums, and tenderness and reduce the risk of losing your teeth as a result of periodontal disease.
Root Canal Therapy
When faced with a choice between tooth extraction and root canal therapy, always choose the root canal! Root canal therapy is highly effective in treating decayed or infected teeth and it will allow you to keep your natural teeth as long as possible. Our root canal therapy is safe and virtually pain-free.
If you have a cavity, a crack, or excessive wear in your tooth, this can be corrected using a silver amalgam filling or white composite filling. Amalgam fillings are appropriate for use in the back of the mouth where they will not be easily seen. We place both types of fillings in a gentle and virtually painless manner.
Crowns are an excellent way of repairing damaged, broken, or heavily decayed teeth. Often, a tooth that could not support a filling can still be saved by covering it with a crown or cap. This crown or cap protects the tooth from further damage, prevents you from experiencing pain when the tooth is touched, and allows you to use the tooth normally.
Dentures are a very traditional treatment for missing teeth. At 63 Family Dental, we can help you replace several teeth or all of your teeth using partial dentures or complete dentures. We will make sure you get a high-quality denture that will be comfortable and allow you to eat and speak normally.
If you are missing a tooth (or several teeth in a row) a fixed bridge can provide a replacement. This will prevent other teeth from shifting into the gap left by the missing teeth and also prevent your face from looking prematurely aged due to the missing teeth. In order to get a fixed bridge, you must have two healthy teeth to attach the appliance to.
