Taking good care of your teeth and gums is an important part of life. A beautiful smile not only looks good, but it is also an indicator of your overall health. Studies have shown that systemic illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, are directly linked to oral health complications like periodontal (gum) disease. At Summit Dental Group, our goal is to help you maintain excellent oral health and improve your overall quality of life. Our services include preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and emergency dentistry. If you are in need of any professional dental treatment, you have come to the right place!
A large part of our practice involves preventive dentistry. We take great pride in treating every member of the family, from infants to grandparents! These treatments are often simple and straightforward, designed to prevent potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of professional cleaning and check-up exam. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for adults, and fluoride treatment for children. If we notice any instances of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need restorative treatment.
Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, our doctors will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common then you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
Dental implants are often used as alternatives to bridges and dentures. This involves replacing the tooth and roots with artificial parts that help it look and function in a more natural way. There are several reasons why people get dental implants. You can receive one at the same time as a dental extraction or to fill an empty space where you previously had a tooth extracted. This procedure can vary depending on your specific condition, so your dentist would consult with you to determine the best method. We can guide you through the best option for you.
Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Cutting-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, and dental veneers & bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.
As you grow older, you experience a lot of changes in your body. These can be internal as well as external changes. While you can take various medicines and vitamins for your internal health, people assume there's not much they can do for their external health. And this is simply not true. In fact, there are various facial therapies and different procedures that can help you maintain your naturally glowing and youthful skin and body! The doctors at Summit Dental Group can help you attain your beauty goals today.
We understand that some people experience fear or anxiety when they think about a trip to the dentist. In some cases, these phobias can even prevent a person from receiving the dental care they need to maintain proper oral health. We offer sedation dentistry to create a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for our patients. You, too, may qualify for sedation dentistry, especially if your anxiety dictates the frequency of your visits. During your next appointment, ask us about your sedation options.
