Dental Services

 

Tender Care Family Dentistry offers a number of comprehensive care including preventive, general and cosmetic services at our office.

Below are more detailed information on the services we offer. Please review our services below and contact us to schedule an appointment.

Routine Dental Care

Comprehensive exam with doctor, necessary x-rays, oral cancer screening, and full examination of patient gum health. Preventive cleanings to help gums stay healthy and fight gingivitis. Regular visits to the Tender Care Family Dentistry is your first defense against gum disease, decay and tooth loss.

Many expensive procedures are avoidable if patients simply visit their dentist every six months for routine dental care. 

Periodontal Care

Periodontal disease (also called gum disease) is more common than you may think. This disease is not just gum inflammation, it is a disease process affecting the gums and the bone of teeth. Leaving this disease untreated, can lead to serious infection and tooth loss. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless "plaque" on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form bacteria-harboring "tartar" that brushing doesn't clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.

Teeth Fillings

Fillings are necessary when decay has destroyed tooth structure, creating the dreaded dental “cavity.” You can also need fillings due to older fillings breaking down and losing their seal. We use composite "white fillings" for material of choice. Leaving decay untouched is never recommended as it will worsen, leading to either root canal therapy or extraction. New techniques in pain management and cavity preparation make this a quick and relatively simple dental process. 

Dental Crowns

A crown is the treatment choice if the tooth is heavily decayed, damaged, or broken. We offer different materials for crowns, from metal free crowns with all porcelain, to gold crowns.  Discuss with your doctor on what material is the best for your tooth health. This procedure normally takes two visits. You go home with a temporary first visit, while our local labs make your custom crown.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is one of several permanent options of tooth replacement, designed to span or “bridge” the gap where teeth are missing. Like crowns, they can be made from a variety of dental materials, but the most popular bridges are made from lifelike porcelain fixed to a metal support structure. Typically, a bridge is composed of two crowns attached to healthy teeth (abutments) on either side with artificial teeth (pontics) filling the gap between them. A dental bridge will hold your other teeth in place and make everyday activities such as eating and talking easier. 

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are a possible solution to help you achieve the look you desire. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshaped teeth. Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look. Tender Care Family Dentistry offer a variety of dental veneer options to choose from. Talk to your dentist about what’s best for you.  

Root Canals

Root canals are common procedures when the tooth's nerves has been injured or diseased, usually from a deep cavity or cracked tooth. Both of these problems can lead bacteria into the nerve area, causing an infection in the tooth. Root canals can help resolve the infection, bring the tooth back to health, and save your tooth from extraction. This treatment may involve one or more dental visits.

Extractions

Natural teeth are ideal for biting, chewing and maintaining mouth and jawbone structure, which is why a dentist’s first priority is to help restore, save and repair your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable. 

The dentist at Tender Care Family Dentistry will make sure you are comfortable before, during, and after your extraction procedure. This includes walking you through every step of the tooth extraction, as well as making the experience as painless as possible. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants, another permanent option for replacement, can help you smile more confidently. A dental implant is permanent and is an effective, attractive, secure way to fill gaps in your smile. Our doctors will examine if you are a candidate for implants, and provide clinical information. We will guide you through the procedure of an implant, and you will understand how it has to be placed first, heal and then a replacement option, either crown, bridge, partial or denture that connects to the implants once the area is healed. 

Dentures, Partials, Implant supported dentures

If you have lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, partials or complete dentures are one choice of replacement of teeth.  Whether you need partial or full dentures, they are essential not only to improve the look of your smile, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Proper maintenance of your complete or partial dentures is also important.

You can also have options to replace all your teeth with implants and dentures or partials that connect to them. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. Please call us today to discuss if dentures or implants are the right option for you!

Night guards

If you are experiencing chronic headaches and migraines by involuntary night-time teeth clenching, let Tender Care Family Dentistry help you with a night guard. A night guard is a thin transparent mouth piece that is worn over the biting surface of your teeth while you sleep to prevent contact between the upper and lower teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Now you can have significantly whiter teeth in a matter of a few days using advanced teeth whitening techniques. Both comfortable & affordable, our teeth whitening procedure involves you wearing a specially crafted tray at home in order to achieve a surprising difference in your smile! Call Tender Care Family Dentistry today for more details.

At Tender Care Family Dentistry, we are all about prevention, to help fight cavities, gingivitis  and periodontal disease, with education, and routine care. If you are interested in any of our services, please do not hesitate to let us know. Contact us to learn more.
