General Dentistry Services at Pearly Whites
Good oral hygiene goes beyond brushing your teeth twice a day. It also includes regular dental cleanings and check-ups, as well as taking care of any underlying issues that could potentially lead to problems down the road. At Pearly Whites, we offer a complete range of hygiene services to keep your smile looking its best, including:
Routine dental cleanings are one of the most important things you can do for your oral health. During a cleaning, our hygienists will remove any plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth. They will also polish your teeth and provide you with instructions on properly caring for your teeth at home. We recommend that you have a cleaning every six months to maintain optimal oral health.
Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums that may lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems such as heart disease. We are experts in diagnosing and treating this condition and can create a customized treatment plan to ensure that your smile stays healthy for years to come.
If you have a cavity, our team can provide you with a white filling. White fillings are made from a composite material that matches the color of your teeth. They are much less noticeable than silver fillings and may help restore your tooth’s strength and function.
Digital X-rays are a vital tool in the diagnosis of oral health problems. They allow us to get a clear picture of your teeth and jawbone and identify any areas of concern. In addition, we use digital X-rays to help us plan treatments and ensure that your smile stays healthy.
A root canal is a treatment used to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay or infection. During a root canal, the tooth’s infected pulp is removed, and the tooth is sealed. This procedure may help to save your tooth and prevent further damage.
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to restore the function and appearance of a tooth. Crowns may be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or metal. They are placed over the damaged tooth and our team will work with you to choose a material that best suits your needs.
A dental bridge is a dental prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth. Bridges are made from a variety of materials but are typically made of gold or porcelain. These bridges are made to blend in with your smile and may aid in correcting your mouth’s shape as well as function.
Pearly Whites provides our patients with a thorough evaluation and will determine if a dental bridge is right for you. Once your bridges are successfully installed, our dental experts will provide you with specific instructions on maintaining them properly.
Our teeth whitening services work to remove blemishes and discoloration while providing you with a breathtaking smile. At Pearly Whites, we understand that each patient’s smile is unique. That’s why we offer both vital and non-vital whitenings. Vital whitening is used for teeth that still have live nerves, while non-vital whitening is intended for teeth that no longer have nerves.
Our knowledgeable dental team will help your teeth sparkle and shine by offering you teeth whitening services dedicated to fit your needs. After your teeth whitening service, your dentist will suggest tips to maintain your new pearly white smile.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious condition that may be life-threatening. However, the earlier it is caught, the better the chances are for a successful treatment. Therefore, we recommend that all of our patients undergo oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer often shows up as white or red lesions in the mouth, and our team will be on the lookout for any signs of this condition.
These lesions may look like a burn, cut, or sore. Our dentists recommend waiting for a few weeks to see if the sore goes away on its own. However, if it does not, we will conduct a biopsy so you can receive an accurate diagnosis. A biopsy involves using general anesthesia to remove a small sample of the lesion from the mouth so it can be examined for cancerous cells.
We will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you receive the best possible care. We will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have about your oral cancer screening.
