General Dentistry Procedures in Kings Mountain

Regular visits to our dentist are key for maintaining optimal oral health, and in Kings Mountain, a comprehensive list of general dentistry procedures is available. In this blog post, we will talk about different general dentistry procedures performed by a Kings Mountain general dentist.

Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps protect it from cavities. Fluoride treatment helps to strengthen teeth and provides extra prevention against cavities.

Dental Sealants: A tooth sealant is a thin plastic coat that shields your teeth from decay and cavities. They are mostly applied to the surfaces of your larger, harder-to-clean molars and premolars. These surfaces are highly susceptible to cavities because of their grooves and lesions. They give a smooth surface so that food cannot get attached, and there are fewer chances of bacteria.

Crowns: Custom-made as a cap, they are used to cover damaged or decayed teeth and provide strength and improve appearance. A crown can be placed individually over a tooth or in a combination of three units together is called a bridge. A bridge is a way to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth or implants.

Root canal Therapy: If the pulp of a tooth gets infected or damaged, it will be necessary to save the tooth with this type of treatment.

Veneers: These are shells of porcelain or composite resin that can be bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to repair stained, chipped, decayed, or otherwise damaged. Issues that can be corrected with veneers are chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration.

Bonding: With bonding, your dentist applies a tooth-colored resin to fill in the chips and cracks on your teeth, as well as close any gaps. After the procedure, dentists can shave and polish the resin to match surrounding teeth so that the overall smile appears more natural.

Scaling and Root Planing: Deep cleaning procedures that help remove plaque and tartar beneath the gum line, as well as smoothing out tooth roots to foster healing of gums.

TMJ Therapy: Our orthodontics office offers treatments for temporomandibular joint disorders that include night guards, physical therapy, and other interventions to reduce pain and enhance function.

There are a range of general dentistry procedures to ensure that patients receive comprehensive dental care in Kings Mountain. Patients of all ages will always be able to count on receiving great care that is appropriate for their specific needs.
