It’s always nice to find everything you need in one place. That’s why big-box stores are so popular. People love the convenience. You rarely find that convenience in the medical field, but in Racine WI, North Bay Dental offers family dental services for everyone in your home … and extended relatives.
The dentists and dental team at North Bay Dental have advanced training in nearly every facet of dentistry. We can treat your youngsters with preventive dentistry, and we can help adults and seniors overcome major smile problems like missing teeth. It’s all right here for your convenience. See how you can bring every member of your family to our office.
Give Your Children The Right Dental Care Early
It’s recommended that parents bring their children to the dentist at about the age of 1. During your child’s first appointments, we’ll begin by reviewing the development of the teeth and jawbone. Once they are a little older, we can provide light dental cleaning and exams to help fight off tooth decay. But our children’s dental services don’t end there. We provide services for parents to assist with their children’s teething troubles and thumb-sucking issues (this habit can negatively affect the development of the jawbone and tooth alignment). You can also find preventive treatments like fluoride and dental sealants in our office, or we can provide orthodontic treatments if needed.
Restore Teeth Or Improve Appearance of Teeth
Few people on Earth are fortunate enough to be born with perfect teeth. Teeth can be damaged with cavities (about 92% of people will have cavities) or maybe the teeth are misshapen or need to be aligned. There are a number of ways we can restore your teeth or improve the appearance of your smile. Here are a few things we can do for you:
- Tooth-colored fillings — These dental fillings match your natural smile and do not require the use of metal. Our tooth-colored fillings bond to your tooth, which reduces the risk of future cavities.
- Crowns and Bridges — Crowns are used to repair broken teeth, teeth damaged with cavities, or teeth that have had root canals. We can provide crowns that are made from gold or even all-ceramic material. A bridge is made up of three or more crowns and it fills in the gap created by the missing tooth.
- Orthodontics — We’re using clear orthodontic aligners to give teens and adults straighter, healthier teeth. The service, ClearCorrect, uses no fixed metal or brackets on the teeth. Most patients can correct their teeth in about 12 to 18 months.
- Teeth whitening — We can whiten your teeth by using custom trays and a high-strength whitening solution. You can use the trays to drastically improve the shade of your teeth.
Replacing Your Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Missing a tooth or several teeth can have serious repercussions on your smile. It’s difficult to smile with confidence and can be hard to eat the food you love. The common way to treat rampant tooth loss is with dentures. Today’s dentures are extremely lifelike, but the problem is function. Because the dentures are not fixed into the bone, they can slide around whenever you eat. Some studies have found that people who wear dentures have only about 25 to 50 percent of the function that they had with their natural teeth.
That’s why we’re offering dental implants to replace missing teeth or secure dentures. Dental implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth and merge with the jawbone. Patients with dental implants finally get to enjoy the foods they love again and never again have to worry about their teeth flying out of their mouth.
