General Dentistry in Las Vegas
Your Dental Health Is Our Priority
Science has shown a link between the health of your teeth and your overall health and well-being. Infections and disease in the gums can increase your risk of serious health problems such as heart disease and stroke. It is more important than ever to maintain healthy teeth and gums. At-home oral hygiene is crucial, of course. Another key component of oral hygiene is maintaining a good relationship with a local dentist and seeing them regularly for general dentistry services.
At Desert Breeze Dental in Las Vegas, our dentists and hygienist team care about the health of your teeth and gums. Our talented, compassionate group has helped hundreds of patients enjoy beautiful and healthy smiles. We would be happy to do the same for you.
Professional Dental Cleanings and Exams
Our dental hygienists use special instruments and techniques to reach the nooks and crannies that your toothbrush can’t. In addition to cleaning your teeth, our dental hygienist and dentist will examine your teeth and gums, looking for possible signs of disease or decay. If we notice any problems, we can begin treatment intervention immediately. Early intervention is easier and less costly than treating advanced problems.
Dental fillings are placed in cases where the structure of a tooth is compromised. The best example of this is tooth decay, trauma, or excessive wear. The area of decay or damage will be removed, and the tooth will be restored with a filling material. There are several filling materials to choose from — for example, composite resin, gold, or amalgam — and each has its benefits and drawbacks. We will recommend the best kind of filling material based on the extent and location of the problem.
Dental bonding is a technique for teeth that have surface damage. A composite resin material is applied to the tooth to repair small chips or cracks. Bonding can also close small spaces between the teeth. The resin material is applied to the surface of the tooth, sculpted as needed, and polished to resemble the translucence of a natural tooth.
Periodontal (Gum) Treatment
We have a variety of periodontal treatment modalities based on how advanced the disease is. The early stages of gum disease can be treated with a technique called scaling and the use of medicated mouthwash. Advanced-stage gum disease may require more invasive scaling, laser treatment, or even surgery.
