Improving Lives with General Dentistry
Our dentists Dr. Parke and Dr. Rogers, along with their team, deeply care for their patients. They provide all of the services that their patients need to maximize their oral health and comfort.
When you see your dentist regularly for dental cleanings, you can avoid the buildup of bacteria-filled tartar. Removing dental tartar is not something you can do at home, and it is an essential step in preventing halitosis, cavities, and other significant dental problems. In our practice we recommend patients having their teeth cleaned every 3 to 6 months.
Early signs of gum disease are common but undesirable. Fortunately, we can treat gingivitis and periodontal disease with deep cleanings, also known as periodontal maintenance therapy. Our staff will remove the bacteria and debris that has gathered underneath the gumline, which will protect you from tooth and bone loss.
Enhanced Oral Cancer Screening
We provide the best in oral cancer-detecting technology so that we can catch any sign of oral cancer at its earliest stage. Oral ID technology consists of a blue light that is developed to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, or any abnormal lesions that may be potential threats. Most importantly, Oral ID can find these problems when they are in the most likely stage for successful treatment.
Cavity Reduction Counseling
Our dentists and staff take the time to educate their patients about how to reduce tooth decay, so that you will have less trouble with cavities in the future. They will counsel with you about your eating patterns and oral hygiene habits, so that you can take even better care of your teeth.
It is important to visit your general dentist frequently for routine examinations. Your dentist will be able to catch decay, gum disease, and other oral problems quickly and treat them early, before they become a real source of discomfort for you.
Fluoride varnish is a way to fight against tooth decay before it occurs. It consists of highly concentrated fluoride that is applied to the surface of your teeth, which will strengthen them against cavities.
Sensitive teeth and gums are frustrating and uncomfortable. We provide in-office treatments that can coat and cover your teeth, creating a barrier so that you do not experience as much sensitivity.
Treatment of Ulcers
Canker sores, or aphthous ulcers, may not always be improved by over-the-counter products. We know how to diagnose and treat these pesky sores effectively.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Small amounts of dental decay are normal, and we can fix this kind of decay rapidly and subtly for you with tooth colored fillings. The process is simple and quick, and no one will know you have had a filling, regardless of which tooth you need filled.
