Dental Exams & Cleanings
One of the best things you can do for your smile is schedule dental check-ups regularly. At a dental check-up, you will receive a thorough exam and cleaning, as well as x-rays when needed. Your dentist will examine your smile and check for any signs of decay or infection. When addressed right away, dental treatments can be kept at a minimum. Problems such as gum disease can be caught early. A professional cleaning every six months will remove plaque and tartar buildup to help you avoid cavities and other dental problems.
Composite fillings are used to fill cavities and restore your smile. If decay is removed from your tooth and a cavity is left, a composite filling will fill and restore your tooth. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with your existing tooth and help your tooth function naturally. If you are in need of a composite filling in New Milford, CT, call to schedule your visit today!
Dental sealants help protect your teeth from harm. Applied to the back molars, dental sealants are a liquid coating that forms over the deep crevices and hard-to-reach areas of your smile. Dental sealants will last for many years once applied. Sealants can be applied during a regular office visit and can be given to children, teens and adults.
For strengthening your smile, fluoride treatments may be recommended at a regular dental check-up. Fluoride treatments help build and strengthen the tooth enamel. If a fluoride treatment can help your smile, your dentist will give you the best recommendations during your next dental visit.
Although our team does everything we can to avoid tooth extractions, sometimes removing a tooth can be the best thing for your smile. A tooth extraction may be recommended if a tooth is severely damaged or decayed. A tooth extraction may also be recommended for crowded teeth or a wisdom tooth that cannot grow in properly. If you are in need of a tooth extraction in New Milford, CT, give our team a call today!
