By receiving consistent dental care, your dentist can help you maintain a healthy smile! If you are searching for a dentist in the Chattanooga, TN area, we invite you to schedule a visit today!
Cleanings & Exams
During a regular check-up, you’ll receive both a dental cleaning and exam. A cleaning removes plaque and tartar buildup, revealing a brighter smile and protecting your teeth and gums. Your dentist will then examine your smile to check for signs of dental concerns. All of your questions can be answered during a regular visit and your dentist will discuss any recommendations for treatment or care.
Although we do everything we can to avoid extractions, at times it can be the best thing for your dental health. There are a variety of reasons a tooth extraction may be recommended such as a crowded smile or severely damaged tooth. An extraction is carefully planned and performed to benefit your dental health.
If you have a cavity, a tooth-colored filling is used to restore the appearance and function of your tooth. A filling is made to last and blends in naturally with your smile. A filling can help preserve a natural tooth for many more years.
Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can greatly damage teeth over the course of time. If you are suffering from constant teeth grinding, a mouthguard could protect your smile! By wearing the mouthguard as you sleep, you can save your teeth from permanent damage.
Mouthguards for Sports
A mouthguard is important in protecting your smile as you play! If you are involved in contact sports, we highly recommend a customized sports mouthguard that will fit comfortably and securely, guarding your teeth from serious injury.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can be used to fill gaps in your smile. A bridge connects to an existing tooth on either side of the gap and creates a secure location for one or more dental crowns to be placed.
We are pleased to offer same-day crowns! If you are in need of a tooth restoration, a dental crown can be designed, created and placed in just one dental visit. A CEREC crown is designed to be durable, made from high-quality materials and blends in naturally with existing teeth. A crown can be used with an implant, dental bridge or placed over an existing tooth.
To strengthen your smile, your dentist may recommend a fluoride treatment during a dental check-up. A fluoride treatment is a painless, quick treatment that coats your teeth with fluoride to avoid cavities and build tooth enamel.
Dental sealants are effective in protecting back molars from dental cavities. Applied to the back teeth, dental sealants cover the deep crevices and hard-to-reach areas of the mouth with a thin, transparent coating that will last for several years.
We offer implant supported dentures for patients seeking a dependable restoration for their missing teeth. Implant supported dentures are just as they sound, a set of custom made dentures that are held in place by a set of implants placed in the jawbone. This allows dentures to be secured without depending on dental adhesives or suction.
Traditional dentures are created to replace a full arch of missing teeth in a patient’s mouth. Denture plates are made from acrylic or resin material to fit the gum arch and adhere to the patient’s mouth, typically held in place by either suction or adhesive. The teeth are made from porcelain blocks, with the entire mouthpiece custom created to fit the individual patient.
Partials are dentures that are built to fit a partial section of tooth loss in a patient’s mouth. These commonly clip into the mouth, or may utilize suction, depending on the size and shape of the partial plate. For patients who are missing one or more teeth, but have some of their natural teeth remaining, partials are an effective way to regain their smile’s appearance and function.
