Learn More About Your Oral Health
We are committed to improving the oral healthcare knowledge of our patients by education them and the Gainesville community about the importance of caring for your teeth and gums. Please use these videos to learn more about your oral health, as well as some of the Gainesville dentist services we provide, such as implants, root canal therapy, Cosmetic Dentistry and overdentures. We find it important for patients to understand their conditions as well as all of the options available for treatment. Please contact our offices with any questions or to schedule your next appointment.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for a missing tooth or teeth. We anchor the implants into the jaw bone and then affix a crown or a prosthesis, such as an overdenture. Ask your dentist if your gums are healthy enough for a dental implant.
During a root canal, access holes must be drilled into the infected tooth so that we can remove compromised tissue, clean the area and shape the root canal system. Then, we fill the holes with gutta percha, a rubber-like material.
Aesthetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of crooked, chipped, stained or discolored teeth, as well as closing gaps. We try to achieve the best facial harmony for each client through whitening processes, crowns, bridges and even invisible braces.
A denture that is secured with implants is a wonderful solution for patients who have several missing teeth. Overdentures with implants provide you with a semi-permanent solution that stays put while eating but can also be removed.
Periodontal disease is a leading cause for tooth loss in adults and is caused by a long-term buildup of plaque. Without proper treatment, toxins from plaque can destroy the bone around your teeth. Loose teeth may have to be removed.
