Extractions

The surgical removal of teeth is a common procedure in our office. You and your doctor may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced gum disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, your doctor will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement options for the extracted tooth such as dental implants.

Preventive Dentistry

Regular preventive dental appointments are an important step in your oral health routine. These biannual checkups can also result in less extensive and less expensive treatment for dental conditions that may develop, and help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime. During a regular preventive appointment at American Family Dentistry, you will receive a thorough hygiene cleaning and a dental exam to check for cavities and other conditions. You may also receive x-rays.

Facial Trauma

The oral surgery specialist performs the proper treatment of facial injuries. These professionals must be well versed in emergency care, acute treatment and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation – not just for physical reasons but emotional as well. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional, as well as physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training involving a “hands on” experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long term function and appearance.

Periodontal/Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place. Gum disease can affect patients of all ages, and even the healthiest of smiles can be at risk. Gingivitis is the initial stage of this disease, and, if treated at this stage, gum disease can often be prevented and reversed. However, if left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and unsightly changes to the soft tissues around the teeth. The good news is that gum disease is relatively easy to prevent by maintaining proper dental hygiene (brushing and flossing) and making regular dental visits.

Endodontic/Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are typically needed when an untreated cavity progresses rapidly and spreads to the pulp of the tooth. The tooth pulp is made up of blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves. Once the bacteria of decay have reached the tooth pulp, it can be extremely painful. If your dentist determines that a root canal is the best solution for you, the procedure can typically be done with minimal discomfort and often keeps you from losing the tooth.

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics deals with simple to complicated full-mouth restorations that may involve crowns, veneers, fixed bridges, dentures, dental implants, or mixed implant and natural tooth restorations. Your general dentist may refer you to a prosthodontist for more complex restoration or replacement cases.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the name for each joint (right and left) that connects your jaw to your skull. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.

After Hours Emergency

Dental emergencies can happen at all hours of the day and night. In order to keep every tooth we care for safe, we offer some guidelines on what to do in every situation. And if that isn’t enough, we always have a dentist on call seven days a week to handle any after-hour emergencies for our current patients.
