Explore our services below.
Preventative Dental Care
Routine Digital X-Rays
Routine digital x-rays are used to check for decay, bone loss, infection, and pathology. Regular checks help to ensure that your teeth are in optimal health.
Routine Dental Cleaning
We recommend appointments at least every six months with our dental hygienists to keep your teeth and gums clean, maintaining optimal oral health. Some people need cleanings more often to address their dental needs.
Dental sealants are a thin protective coating that adheres to your teeth and prevents cavities. We recommend this service for our younger patients as they grow to help protect their teeth.
Fluoride treatments help to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are available to all patients and are a great preventative treatment option.
Periodontal disease requires continued maintenance and care. This will likely mean coming in for appointments more than every six months. The Walters & Smith Family Dentistry team of doctors and dental hygienists work hard to rid your gums of unhealthy bacteria and keep them clean.
Scaling & Root Planing
Periodontal disease can require more extensive treatment than normal cleanings. Our dentists and dental hygienists are gentle, comprehensive, and skillful at removing plaque and tartar buildup. Removing tartar below the gum line is vital to minimizing bone loss and regaining healthy gums.
Night Guards & Athletic Guards
Custom-made occlusal guards help protect your teeth from clenching and grinding habits at night. This will help prolong the health of your teeth and existing dental work. Athletic guards can also be made to keep your teeth protected on the field.
Oral Cancer Screening
Screening allows our team to help find cancer at an early stage. With early detection, diagnosis and treatment can happen quickly.
Restorative Dentistry Services
Dental crowns are needed for many reasons. After a tooth has root canal treatment, large parts of the tooth have fractured or been filled, and also to improve the esthetics of teeth.
After a dental implant is placed, a crown is needed to restore the missing tooth. Our team can help make a custom tooth to attach to your dental implant.
A bridge consists of a false tooth or teeth being held by dental crowns on each adjacent tooth. This is one potential option to restore missing teeth.
Composite resin fillings are white and blend with natural teeth. This allows for the treatment of tooth decay without changing the color of the tooth.
Dental implants are used in many ways. They can help replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, and in some cases a whole arch of teeth. Dental implants can also be used to help stabilize dentures and partial dentures.
Dentures are needed for patients who are missing their teeth. Dentures are custom fit to your mouth and improve esthetics and function if you are missing your teeth.
Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are custom-made for your mouth. This removable prosthesis can help restore your smile if one or more teeth are missing.
Anterior Root Canals
Root canals are needed when a nerve becomes damaged or infected. This procedure will help you keep your damaged tooth and maintain your smile.
If you are suffering from cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth, veneers may be an excellent option for you.
