Dental Treatment in La Plata, MD
In our La Plata, MD dental office, we provide preventative treatment against oral health issues, treatment to enhance the aesthetics of the smile, and options for missing and infected teeth. We work with our patients as individuals to thoroughly understand their dental problems and find the best solutions.
Restorative Dental Care
Our treatments can restore your smile, fight against gum disease, reverse symptoms of bite disorders, and prevent decay and dysfunction caused by missing teeth. We use dental implants to replace one or more teeth and support dental bridges and dentures. All On Four dentures allow patients to restore a full arch of missing teeth using as little as four implants. Restorative dentistry allows patients to receive newly comfortable and functional smiles that help them feel more confident in their oral health.
Cosmetic Dental Solutions
Cosmetic dental treatments like Invisalign stop overcrowding and decay, while dental veneers and tooth bonding protect teeth from wear and further damage. Even professional teeth whitening treatment can benefit our patient’s oral health. Many patients who receive teeth whitening in our office are more motivated to maintain their brilliant results with a good oral hygiene routine.
General dental care provides patients with treatment to keep their teeth and gums in great shape and stop the development of future problems at the source. Our professional dentists and office staff collaborate with patients to provide the most high-quality care possible.
Preventative Dental Care
Our general dental options help prevent further oral health problems. We treat patients with dental emergencies such as toothaches, lost permanent teeth, broken dental restorations, and excessive bleeding. Root canal treatments remove an infection from within the tooth while tooth extractions can remove teeth that are causing severe infection. Custom sports mouthguards help prevent injury or loss to the teeth during games.
We also offer treatment methods that make it easier to receive comfortable dental care. Dental sedation calms and relaxes patients so they can have pain-free treatment. Sedation dentistry also benefits patients with dental fear or anxiety, helping them to treat their fear and their oral health. Dental lasers are a safe and modern treatment method used to remove gum infections without any pain or need for sutures or dental drills. Our office is a place where patients of all ages can feel comfortable. We provide family dentistry services that allow all members of a family to receive dental care under one roof.
Why is Routine Dental Care Important?
Visiting the dentist on a routine basis, typically every six months is a preventative treatment in and of itself. By scheduling biannual appointments, our patients are improving their oral health and overall health. During routine appointments, our dental hygienists thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. We may also take x-rays and screen for problems like gum disease and tooth impaction.
We not only maintain our patient’s oral health during routine visits but also pinpoint early symptoms before they worsen. Patients have a chance to let their dentists know if they have any current dental concerns or changes in their oral health. Some dental problems can also impact the health of other parts of the body. For instance, gum inflammation caused by periodontitis, or gum disease, can spread through the bloodstream and affect the heart. Even one missing tooth can lead to problems like overcrowding or tooth decay. Our La Plata dental office helps keep patients on top of their oral health.
