General Dentistry Grounded in Patient Education
Over 40% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease, but they don’t even know it. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and oral complications. At Smileology™, we have a complete health perspective and advocate prevention of dental harms first and foremost. Not only are our dentists highly trained and educated, but they are also professors who teach dentistry and are passionate about patient education. With our extensive menu of premium general dentistry services, we help our patients establish a clean foundation from which their oral health can thrive for a lifetime.
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child is involved in any type of sport, wearing a custom fitted mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it also reduces the risk of concussion.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding.
Gentle Tooth Extraction
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your entire mouth, including your healthy teeth and gum tissue. Fortunately, we can help!
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient’s late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if they need to be removed.
Fluoride application can help remineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them resilient against bacteria and reducing your chance of developing cavities.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
We use a special desensitizing gel that begins to works immediately. If you experience tooth pain and sensitivity to heat or cold, ask our Smileology™ dental team if a desensitizing treatment is the right choice for your smile.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Dental prophylaxis is a professional teeth cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise. That’s why at Smileology™ we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.
The Wand Painfree Injection
At Smileology™ we offer The Wand, a state-of-the-art digital platform for local anesthesia to our patients. This pain-free injection is more comfortable than a traditional syringe, reducing your pain and dental anxiety!
DIAGNOdent (Caries Detection)
Laser Diagnodent cavity detection pinpoints small areas of decay before they’re visible during an exam or even on an x-ray. This state-of-the-art technology can mean the difference between a small filling and a more invasive dental procedure.
3D CT Scanning
3D CT scanning provides us with extremely accurate three-dimensional replicas of your oral anatomy, which prove especially useful when planning for dental implants, root canals, or wisdom teeth treatments.
