Your initial exam at Layton Lakes Dental consists of a comprehensive dental exam, assessing any and all aspects of your oral health and determining what action may be required next. During the exam, the following steps occur: teeth history, periodontal health, teeth exam, cleaning, and treatment plan.
Dentures & Dental Implants
Dental implants are metal posts surgically “planted” into your jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your Salt River Dentist to affix replacement teeth onto them. For some, regular bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or, for various reasons, even possible.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a dental treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or is infected. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth becomes infected and abscesses may form. Untreated inflammation or infection can be very painful, as well. Root canal therapy can save a tooth, restore full functionality, without requiring a tooth extraction.
Teeth cleaning is an integral part of good dental hygiene. Twice annual teeth cleaning should be a part of preventive oral healthcare. Along with brushing and flossing, professional teeth cleaning keeps your teeth healthy and your smile bright! Let Layton Lakes Dental make your teeth shine!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last of your “big” teeth to erupt. Because our mouths no longer can accommodate the additional teeth (the human jaw is not as developed/large as it was decades in the past) in our mouths, most dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth. If you are experiencing pain, please contact Salt River Dental today.
Tooth extraction is done by a dentist or oral surgeon, and typically begins with numbing the area around the tooth or, if you’re having more than one tooth removed, general anesthetic is administered, which prevents pain throughout your body, and may put you to sleep.
Accidents that damage your teeth can happen any time, day or night. It’s important to know teeth-related injuries constitutes a dental emergency and what events can wait for a visit to the dentist during regular office hours.
Over time your pearly white teeth may not be as bright as they once were. If your teeth are stained, yellowing, and you don’t present the brilliant smile you once did, perhaps professional teeth whitening is the answer.
Ensuring healthy teeth and gums is paramount for good health among children. Early dental care establishes a relationship with dentist and children that carries forward throughout life. Dentists that understand how to interact with kids allows for an ease of care that eliminates the stress and fear among kids and makes life so much easier for parents!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are vital to your good health. At Layton Lakes Dental, oral cancer screening is part of your regular dental checkup. Your dentist examines your oral tissues (mouth) by looking at your lips and inside your mouth. They also check your gums carefully, and the inside of your cheeks and your tongue – both the sides and underneath.
Periodontal diseases are bacterial infections that affect the tissues and bone that support your teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.
Because people live longer than in years past, dental concerns for aging people present unique challenges. Salt River Dental offers treatment to elderly patients – those 65 years and older.
Same Day Crowns
At Layton Lakes Dental Care, we are able to do same-day restorations on almost all procedures (you can have a complete crown done in under two hours, in one visit), including inlays, onlays, crowns, and even some bridges, often at a lower cost to you. Restorations look outstanding, last a long time, and are biocompatible and metal-free.
