Teeth Cleaning

Regular Exams and Cleanings

One of the most important aspects of your overall oral health is keeping your teeth and gums clean and strong. To help in this effort, Ellis County Family Dentistry provides dental cleanings and exams for your entire family. The goal of dental cleanings and exams is to provide preventive measures to stop tooth decay before it emerges while also beginning any necessary treatment planning.

  • Clean, dry, and polish each tooth to a beautiful shine
  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities and signs of tooth decay
  • Perform an oral cancer screening
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Take a series of dental X-rays to fully understand your smile

Please contact our practice today to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.

Bridges

A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong. A typical dental bridge consists of a filler tooth that is attached to two surrounding dental crowns. Once complete, our dentists bond this bridge structure into your mouth. Without a dental bridge, your remaining teeth can drift out of line and cause other dental problems, and possibly periodontal disease. We offer a few different types of bridges:

  • Traditional dental bridges – This is the most common type of dental bridge. A traditional bridge uses two dental crowns to anchor a false tooth in place. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on each side of the gap.
  • Resin-bonded bridges – Resin-bonded bridges use metal clasps and bonding cement to hold your new tooth in place. Resin-bonded bridges are great for patients who are missing front teeth.
  • Cantilever bridges – Cantilever bridges are similar in function to traditional dental bridges but are used when there are no natural teeth on one side of the gap.

Crowns

Dental crowns are a common procedure used to restore the functionality and looks of a damaged tooth. Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Dental crowns, tooth-shaped caps, completely cover a tooth up to the gum line. We work hard to guarantee each dental crown fits as it should and looks natural with the rest of your smile. Our dental crowns can be matched to the color of your natural tooth.
  • Repair tooth decay and damage
  • Prevent a weak or cracked tooth from breaking
  • Hold a broken tooth together
  • Provide support for a large filling or root canal treatment
  • Anchor a bridge in place
  • Complete a dental implant
 
We recommend dental crowns when a large portion of your original teeth are lost or damaged. They are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.
