The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends you see your dentist at least twice a year for check-ups. This exam includes a head-and-neck cancer screening and x-rays.
Cleanings are performed at least twice a year and are important for preventing tooth decay and preventing gum disease.
Dental fillings are a common procedure to restore the function and appearance of teeth damaged by decay. DeLaet Dental offers tooth-colored restorations.
Crowns, Bridges & Veneers
Crowns, bridges, and veneers are restorations that are made in a laboratory and then cemented or bonded onto teeth. This is done to replace large amounts of missing tooth structure, missing teeth, or for appearance.
A root canal is needed when the nerve inside the tooth is damaged beyond repair. This damage can be from tooth decay or trauma. The nerve is removed, the inside of the tooth disinfected, and a permanent restoration placed.
Dental implants are a predictable way to replace missing teeth. A crown can be placed on the implant to replace a single tooth, or implants may be used in bridges or dentures to replace multiple teeth.
Tooth removal is necessary if a tooth can no longer be restored, or if there is not enough room in the mouth, such as wisdom teeth.
Dentures can be made to replace missing teeth. A complete denture replaces all the teeth in one arch, while a partial denture replaces missing teeth when some teeth are still present.
Sealants are used in preventative dentistry to seal pits and grooves in the back teeth to prevent decay. They are a great option in both children and adults.
DeLaet Dental offers several options for whitening the teeth, along with a full compliment of cosmetic options including veneers.
