A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from our family dentist or a dental hygienist. To prevent excessive plaque buildup that can result in unhealthy gums and tooth decay, cleanings should be performed every 6 months.
Hometown Family Dental Centers helps restore teeth eroded by decay with fillings. A filling helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter. Composite and Amalgam are the two materials used for fillings. Dr. Scammon works with you to determine which option is best for your needs.
Let us enhance your teeth or eliminate gaps with crowns and bridges. A crown is a cap that completely covers a damaged tooth, making it stronger and more attractive. If you have space in your mouth from one or more missing teeth, a bridge will successfully fill in the space.
Hometown Family Dental Centers also performs root canal therapy to effectively treat cavities that extend into the pulp. If the damage is beyond repair, Dr. Scammon may recommend extraction.
Implants are a surgical procedure used to replace teeth. These are permanent, and the next best thing to your natural tooth. Rest assured you will retain your smile, as implants are meant to fit, feel, and function like your own tooth. The best part is-implants can’t get cavities!
Most people's jaw bones are not large enough to accommodate this third set of molars, which can pose a number of problems that usually require removal of the wisdom teeth. These teeth are positioned in the back of the mouth behind the second molars. Like the appendix are considered vestigial organs and have little or no use. We perform all wisdom teeth extractions in house, and offer IV sedation for both kids and adults.
Affordable dentures are offered in a variety of styles that include full and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Our experienced dentists will help you find the best match for your needs.
