Cleanings And Exams
Having a dental practice perform a checkup and regular cleaning gives a preventive approach to dental care. These general dentistry treatments help prevent problems with your teeth, gums and jaw bones, or they catch and manage problems before they worsen. During your visit, our doctors will take a picture of the current standing of your dental health and what would be needed to keep your oral hygiene in its best state.
We are excited to be able to offer our patients the Solea Laser system. Cleared by the FDA for use on hard and soft surfaces, the Solea Laser allows us to offer advanced procedures that are more precise and less invasive.
Here at Rivershore Dental, we are dedicated to providing our patients with cutting edge technology and pain-free dentistry.
The Solea Laser is a dental tool that is used in place of a drill. The laser is silent and vibration free helping patients feel more at ease. Because the laser seals your blood vessels and nerve endings while it works, the recovery process is almost instantaneous. There is no bleeding, and stitches aren’t necessary.
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.
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.
We are proud to specialize in pediatric dentistry. Our entire staff is very good with children. We know and understand how children think so that we can start them off right. We want them to associate the dentist’s office as a good place, instead of being scared. We take our time with each patient so that they have an enjoyable visit.
Our dentists (and entire staff) understand the importance of good oral health even as young children. They have specialized training with primary teeth. They are here to help protect and restore children’s teeth so that they can speak and eat easily, as well as having a wonderful smile. They understand the growth and development of children’s teeth so that they can start their oral health off correctly.
Emergency Dental Care
Accidents and dental emergencies can happen at any time, and we are here and always ready to help. You can save valuable time and unnecessary stress by communicating any risks, hobbies, or sports you may be engaging in with your dentist at Rivershore Dental so we can best equip you with the gear and knowledge you need to stay safe. Knowing exactly what to do in an accident or sports injury can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth.
