Caring for your smile demands more than just daily brushing and occasional professional dental appointments. Our Marin County dentists provide the comprehensive dental treatments that patients of many ages need to stay well. In this article we are going to be outlining some of the treatments that we commonly utilize when providing comprehensive dentistry.
Let’s start by talking about some of the things that you can do to prevent oral health problems in your own life. Obviously, you should be brushing and flossing at home as recommended by your dental team. Additionally, the American Dental Association recommends that people complete professional dental cleanings every six months or so. These appointments are also great opportunities for our dentist to complete any additional preventive treatments that you may require—like applying dental sealants.
When dental issues do arise, our team provides the restorative treatments that you need to reclaim your oral health. We use metal-free, natural looking fillings and restorations to treat cavities and dental decay, for example. We also use dental bonding to correct small cracks and chips in your enamel.
Another very important treatment that we provide is laser treatment for periodontal treatment. Laser dentistry is less destructive and more comfortable than traditional “cut and stitch” treatment. Laser periodontal therapies destroy damaged oral tissues while preserving healthy tissues so that your mouth can heal.
Comprehensive dentistry also allows our team to assess how your jaw and smile are structurally aligned. We want to ensure that your bit fits together comfortably, so that you can avoid TMJ issues and uneven dental wear and tear in the future.
On top of these foundational considerations our office also offers a range of cosmetic and tooth replacement options. If you want to learn more about the types of treatments available, please feel free to contact our Marin County dentists to get started!
