Imagine a world where there’s only one type of ice cream. Terrible, right? While you wouldn’t feel the immediate effects right away, that’s sort of how it would be if there were only one type of dentistry. Say you could only ever get your teeth cleaned — what would happen if you had a cavity? Or wanted to make your healthy teeth really sparkle? You’d be out of luck. Fortunately, there are a variety of options available from your dentist in Weymouth. Learn which one suits your needs best today!
General Dentistry Covers the Basics
Most of the time, you and your loved ones just need the basics in general and preventive dentistry: a checkup and cleaning, preventive treatments, and maybe a small filling from time to time. These services are taken care of during a routine checkup and cleaning, which all patients should undergo every six months. General and preventive dentistry also includes dental sealants, topical fluoride treatments, oral cancer screenings, TMJ therapy, and children’s dentistry. Stay on top of your regular preventive care and you’re greatly reducing your risk for a number of oral health hazards.
Restorative Dentistry Rescues and Repairs
Occasionally, despite our best preventive efforts, decay, infection, or injury affect the health and/or beauty of your smile. If it happens to you, that’s when it’s time for a restorative dentist. Root canal therapy rescues severely damaged teeth from extraction, but if a tooth cannot be saved, your restorative dentist also removes teeth to protect your oral and overall health. Before extraction, we’ll discuss your options in tooth replacement, including the traditional crown or bridge, or dental implants.
Cosmetic Dentistry Beautifies Healthy Teeth
Once your teeth are healthy, we look forward to discussing your options in cosmetic dentistry. The area of dentistry is more popular than ever these days, and it’s no mystery why. In as little as one visit to the cosmetic dentist, you can enjoy a brighter, whiter, more confident smile. Some of the most common treatments include professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, clear braces, and all-ceramic restorations. At Columbian Square Dental, your cosmetic dentist even offers Botox® and Juvederm® dermal fillers.
Specialized Dentistry: Emergencies, Sleep Apnea, Sedation
There are also dentists who are equipped to handle your more specialized needs — like if you have an emergency requiring treatment right away. Whether it’s a knocked out tooth, a severe toothache, or any other issue, emergency dentists are equipped to handle your situation quickly to get you out of pain and on with your life.
Many people are also surprised to learn that they can receive sleep apnea treatment from their dentist. After you receive a diagnosis, visit your trained dentist for treatment with CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) or a removable oral device.
And finally, if you’re nervous about dental work, visit a sedation dentist. With a variety of options available, sedation dentistry can help you relax through your upcoming appointment at long last.
