Regardless of what your dental history is, our Florida dentists can help. Each one has extensive training in advanced care methods that allow us to work together to provide a wider variety of services in one of our convenient locations. Our general dentistry services include:
Our Smile Design Dental dentists thoroughly screen for conditions like gum disease, TMJ disorders, decayed or broken teeth, functional, and aesthetic concerns. We then visit with you one-on-one to discuss any of our findings.
A regular preventive cleaning with our Registered Dental Hygienists can help you avoid gum disease, tooth loss, and bad breath. These cleanings are designed to remove tartar and plaque bacteria that could lead to periodontal disease. We then follow your cleaning up with a fluoride varnish to prevent sensitivity and protect your teeth from tooth decay.
Low radiation digital x-rays enhance the disease screening process, improve our communication with patients, and make your visit with us much more efficient for your busy schedule.
Dental Tooth Extractions
Sometimes having a tooth extracted is necessary to keep your smile healthy or free of pain. While it’s always our desire to restore your natural teeth, this may not always be possible. For instance, you may need to have a tooth extracted due to concerns like:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Severe tooth decay
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Full mouth reconstruction
Oral Pathology Screenings
During your oral cancer exam at Smile Design Dental, we will thoroughly check the joints, glands, muscles and tissues inside and outside of your mouth. If something abnormal is identified, we will refer you to a specialist for a biopsy of the tissues. Early diagnosis is extremely important, allowing us to catch the cancer before it progresses, and positioning you for a better treatment outcome.
Screening for oral cancer isn’t something that’s restricted to people who smoke or use tobacco products. It’s an important part of every single patient examination in our Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach, Margate, and Plantation dental offices. Oral cancer is an extremely deadly disease because it often creeps up on even the healthiest of individuals, who never knew something was wrong until it has already entered into advanced stages.
Wisdom Teeth Treatments
Wisdom teeth typically begin developing in adolescence and start erupting between the teen years or early adulthood. Some people are able to avoid any complications associated with their 3rd molars, but others are not so lucky. If the wisdom teeth are not developing or erupting properly, problems may develop.
Proactively removing your wisdom teeth can help you avoid these complications and prevent damage to the rest of your smile. First, we will need to perform an exam and take a special x-ray that assesses the development and location of the wisdom teeth. If they appear to be erupting without any problems, we may just continue to monitor them. However, if they are causing problems, having them removed may be the best choice.
