Canton Dental Care’s professional staff members are true believers that preventative care and patient education are the keys to dental health. Regular dental exams and routine cleanings, flossing, sealants and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease in both adults and children.
Your initial dental exam includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal measurements, and diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, including a panoramic x-ray and bite-wing x-ray series.
A sealant is a coating painted onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to help prevent cavities. The sealant material fills in small voids where your toothbrush may not be able to reach.
In the past, dental fillings were made of a silver amalgam material. Today, composite resins are used to make tooth-colored fillings. These upgraded materials provide durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings. These fillings are a close match to the natural tooth color and contain no heavy metals.
Root canal therapy is a surgical option when infection or trauma affect the root of a tooth. When the pulp of a tooth is too damaged for antibiotics or other non-surgical options to help, Dr. Bill’s gentle approach to root canal therapy is the answer.
Scaling and root planing is a careful cleaning of the root surfaces to deep clean periodontal pockets and smooth the tooth root to prevent infection. Scaling and root planing services may require additional care and/or medication after your visit. Meet with Dr. Bill to develop a customized treatment plan.
When a tooth can’t be saved, it may need to be removed. Dr. Bill’s careful tooth extraction process ensures a painless procedure with detailed instructions for a speedy recovery.
Regular dental exams are essential to your dental health.
