Our General Dentistry Services Include:
Preventive dentistry is the area of dentistry concerned with preventing dental problems before they become costly, painful or both. A large part of preventive dentistry is patient education. This includes learning the proper at-home dental care and nutrition. Another aspect of preventive dentistry is oral hygiene which includes regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, mouthguards and more.
Mount Vernon Dental Smiles offers in-office digital X-rays for your convenience. Digital X-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional film-type X-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide X-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor and instantaneously transmits an image of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact Mount Vernon Dental Smiles for more details or to schedule an appointment!
Emergency Dental Care
We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise, and at Mount Vernon Dental Smiles, we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Whether it is something as simple as a tooth filling or a complicated procedure requiring a cosmetic dentist, we can provide you with assistance.
Mount Vernon Dental Smiles offers high-quality dentistry for the entire family. We understand that adults and children have different needs, and we address them all. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors and the highest quality care while kids want to be comfortable and respected. That’s why our dentists have extensive experience working with both adults and children. We can make your dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office, we have elected to use only new, advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you. Your safety and aesthetics are our primary concerns!
Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection is key in the battle against cancer, and this is no different with oral cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, keep in mind that 25 percent of oral cancer diagnoses are non-smokers. It’s important that every patient receive a simple and pain-free exam from a Mount Vernon Dental Smiles Dentist. Remember, that when caught early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90 percent survival rate. So don’t put off your examination another minute!
Sealants & Fluoride Treatments
Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay, and there are many ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can smooth out and protect the deep grooves in your back teeth and extend their life while helping to prevent cavities.
Mouthguards are an essential piece of sporting equipment for preventing mouth injury during sports and other physical activities. Mouthguards act as a cushion, protecting your teeth, tongue, gums, lips and cheeks from impacts to the face. Though mouthguards can be purchased in stores, the most effective, best-fitting and comfortable mouthguards are custom-fitted by your dentist. With a custom mouthguard from Mount Vernon Dental Smiles, you can keep smiling no matter what the competition throws at you. Call Mount Vernon Dental Smiles today for a mouthguard consultation.
