Our preventive services include:
Teeth Cleanings & Exams
Regular teeth cleanings and examinations can help us catch and treat any problems we discover before they worsen.
Fluoride treatments make tooth enamel stronger reducing the risk of decay and cavities.
Arestin® (for Gum Disease Treatment)
Arestin antibiotic treatments combat gum disease. When left untreated, gum disease leads to tooth loss and bad breath.
Nightguards & Sportsguards
Mouthguards provide reliable protection for your teeth from grinding at night (bruxism) to playing sports during the day.
Sealants are thin protective coating to protect your teeth from bad bacteria and decay.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Early detection can lead to better treatment results. During your exam, we’ll check your mouth for any abnormalities.
It’s not uncommon for our smiles to require a little extra TLC. If you have cracked, damaged, missing, or decayed teeth, our full-suite of services can restore your smile back to its full health and functionality. Whatever your restorative needs may be, we’re ready to help you smile again.
Our restorative services include:
If you’re missing multiple teeth in a row, a dental bridge can “bridge” the gap in your smile with an appliance containing false teeth that connects to dental crowns placed on either side of the gap.
Crowns are used to cover cracks and chips, and to restore teeth after a trauma or oral surgery. We’ll match the color of your dental crown to your other teeth so it blends in with your smile.
Our full and partial dentures can restore your smile if you’re missing most or all of your teeth. We offer denture stabilization with dental implants to snap your dentures into place for a secure, non-slip fit.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed into your jawbone in place of missing teeth. They act as a tooth root and are typically topped with a crown, bridge, or denture.
Fillings are used in a variety of treatments. Most commonly, they are used to seal a tooth after a cavity or decay has been removed. We match the filling to the color of your other teeth so it isn’t noticeable.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are notorious for coming in sideways, crowding other teeth, and not erupting properly. Removal may be necessary to prevent more serious problems later on.
If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain, you may have an infection inside your tooth. A root canal procedure removes the infected pulp and cleans out your tooth. Root canals allow us to preserve and strengthen your natural tooth.
Beautiful, healthy teeth can give you the confidence to flash your smile, impress a first date, ace a job interview, and more. If you’re unhappy with certain aspects of your teeth, such as the color, size, or shape, our cosmetic services can help you love your smile again.
Looking to straighten your smile in a discreet way? We offer Invisalign clear aligners so you don’t have to feel self conscious of noticeable brackets and wires during the teeth straightening process. To learn more about this subtle orthodontic treatment, visit our Invisalign page!
If you experience dental anxiety or feel uneasy about visiting the dentist, we offer relaxing nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you feel comfortable and at ease while you’re in the dental chair.
At Lakewood Dentistry, we love to see kids! We cater to children’s unique needs and focus on educating them about dental health in a way that’s easy for them to understand and even fun.
