Our general dentists, pediatric specialists and dental hygienists are trained to care for patients of all ages, offering a full range of services to keep your family’s mouths healthy.
General dentists provide a wide range of primary dental services to patients of all ages. Working with dental hygienists, our dentists diagnose and treat problems using advanced techniques and technologies.
Our dentists provide dental care that is vital to your continued health, including:
- Preventing, evaluating, diagnosing and treating diseases of the oral cavity to maintain the function and appearance of teeth.
- Restorative treatment, including tooth-colored (composite) fillings and silver crowns to restore your mouth’s functional and esthetic state. Different types of fillings and crowns are used based on function and preference.
- Simple and complex tooth removal if your tooth is broken or badly decayed and cannot be saved with a filling, crown or other treatment. After tooth removal, follow any instructions your dentist gives you.
Treatment limited to children:
- First dental home visits
- Minor orthodontic treatment
- Complete root canal treatment for children 7-12 years old will save the tooth until it’s ready to fall out, as well as prevent the spread of tooth decay
- Different types of pediatric crowns are available to help save primary teeth and prevent problems in a child’s oral development
- For pediatric patients, silver diamine fluoride treatment is available.
When children lose baby teeth prematurely, space maintainers are an appliance used to help “hold space” to allow the permanent tooth to grow into that open space when it is ready.
Preventive Dental Hygiene Care
Dental hygiene is important to maintain a healthy smile and prevent future problems. Our dental team uses their knowledge and clinical skills in these ways:
- Patient screening, such as oral health assessments, review of health history, oral cancer screening, head and neck inspection, and taking vital signs
- Dental Radiographs (X-rays)
- Removing calculus and plaque (hard and soft deposits) from teeth
- Applying preventive materials to teeth, such as sealants and fluorides
- Teaching appropriate oral hygiene strategies, such as brushing and flossing, as well as counseling patients regarding good nutrition and its impact on oral health.
The Greenspoint Clinic offers adult walk-in urgent dental care on Wednesdays, but will accommodate patients on a case-by-case basis, if available. Urgent care cases include toothaches, broken teeth, and swelling of the gums and mouth. If you need a tooth removed due to damage or decay, this can be treated through Urgent Care. Be sure to follow instructions your dentist gives you after any procedure.
