What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is more about bettering the aesthetics of your smile rather than a necessary medical procedure. If you have ever wanted to brighten your teeth or fix a small space between your teeth, then you have ventured into the world of cosmetic dentistry. A cosmetic dentist works to perfect the aesthetics of your smile through several cosmetic procedures. Ask about our smile makeover.
What is Endodontic Treatment?
Endodontics is diagnosing and treating pain relating to teeth. Endodontic means, the inside of the tooth. It’s a specialized area of dentistry and generally involves either root canal treatment or apical surgery.
Primary treatments are usually:
- Tooth fractures/traumatic damage
- Tooth decay
- Leakage around old crowns
The whole purpose of endodontic treatment is to save teeth so that people can have them for much longer. Chewing comfortably without the need for extractions and then dentures or implants is the goal of all endodontic procedures.
What is General Dentistry?
A general dentist is your primary care provider for your oral health. Your dentist diagnoses and treats your overall oral health needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.
Why would you need oral surgery?
An oral surgeon is valuable to have around and can help with issues ranging from wisdom teeth and impacted teeth to jaw misalignment and bone loss. Oral surgeons can treat chronic diseases or conditions that derive from matters of the mouth.
What is Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontia is the branch of dentistry that helps with abnormalities of the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic care uses oral devices, like braces, to straighten teeth and correct problems with the bite and jaw. Orthodontic treatment can be considered part of cosmetic dentistry because it works with the aesthetics of the smile.
What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry focuses on caring for children from infancy through the teenage years. This treatment includes the prevention and treatment of diseases of the mouth, teeth, and gums and the early intervention during the growth of teeth to prevent dental problems in the future.

What is Periodontal Care?
Periodontal care is the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases in the gums. Treatments usually include:
- scaling and root planing
- root surface debridement
- oral inflammation treatment
- cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Periodontal care entails cleaning the pockets thoroughly around teeth to prevent damage to the surrounding bone.
What is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain constant good oral health throughout your lifetime. It is a combination of bi-yearly dental check-ups along with developing good at-home dental habits. Taking care of your teeth by brushing and flossing starts early in childhood and extends throughout your life.
What is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a specific branch of dentistry that replaces missing teeth and related mouth or jaw structures like bridges, dentures, and prostheses. Prosthodontists receive an additional three years of training after dental school to specialize in this field. Want to learn more? Click here.
