Here at Desert Lake Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer laser dentistry to our patients.
Though laser dentistry is not very common, it can be quite beneficial. Surgical wounds from laser dentistry heal faster because there is less damage to the tissues. There is also less bleeding and fewer post-surgical infections. Many times anesthesia and sutures are not necessary with laser dentistry.
Lasers are helpful for many different procedures. Often they are helpful when filling teeth because we don’t need to use anesthesia. They are also good for gum surgery, whether we are remolding gums or removing a tumor from the gums. Dental surgery is done to remove extra tissue, tumors, and more.
Here at Desert Lake Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to keeping you informed and want you to know what you can expect during your first visit with us.
The first appointment consists of a consultation. We will review your current situation, explain your diagnosis, and cover your treatment options.
You will want to bring the following information with you to the consultation appointment:
- Your referral slip and X-rays if applicable
- A list of any medications you are taking
- Any known allergies or medical conditions
- Medical or Dental insurance to be filed
Occasionally treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, complex treatment plans or complicated medical histories will require evaluation and a second appointment for treatment. Please let the office know if you have a medical condition that may be a concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves or joints, rheumatic fever, or blood disorders).
It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside.
Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard!
Our highly trained doctors and staff are ready to manage all of your concerns. We have methods to alleviate the pain and help you feel calm during your emergency dental visit.
Single Dental Implant
When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.
A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth.
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth. A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your mouth will replace the removed tooth root by forming a blood clot in the area.
Composite fillings act as a dentistry solution for problems such as tooth decay or cracks. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.
