Family Dentistry Services
General dentistry can include many different services which we are proud to provide.
Teeth Cleaning and Dental Checkups — A professional teeth cleaning is vital to the health of your teeth. Not only do we remove tartar, which cannot be cleaned at home, but we can spot current cavities, keep an eye out for potential cavities, run x-rays, and check for developing problems such as oral cancer or gum disease. We offer periodontal disease treatment in-office to help get your smile to its healthiest.
Hygiene Education — Education is one of our top priorities here in Billings. A semi-annual cleaning is simply not enough to keep your teeth as healthy and strong as they have the potential to be. They require daily care.
During your appointments, we will help you to learn and understand the importance of daily brushing, how to floss correctly, and keep you up to date on hygiene practices that are necessary for your continued health.
Restorative Dentistry — Teeth are susceptible to injury and accident, just like everything else. Sometimes they decay, break, or come loose altogether. When this happens, we provide several different options for restoring your mouth to its optimal state.
Just some of these options involve crowns, bridges, dental implants, orthodontic adjustments, and traditional tooth-colored cavity fillings. We do not use silver/amalgam fillings in our office; we use tooth-colored fillings for optimal aesthetic and safety.
It is a common misconception that children’s teeth don’t matter quite so much as an adult’s. After all, they are temporary, right?
While it is true that these teeth will eventually be replaced, children must still live with them for as many as twelve years. Pain, widespread decay, and misalignment will not only affect the child as long as the teeth are damaged, but will affect the health of their growing adult teeth as well.
We do not specialize in pediatric dentistry, but our office is willing and able to take whole families—making us your one-stop-shop for all of your dental needs. Dentistry for children is extremely important, and we are here to help! In the event that your children do need more specialized treatment, we are always willing to help you find what you need.
