Fillings & Sealants
Tooth decay can result in a cavity which will need to be filled to restore the integrity and beauty of the tooth. A properly placed filling will prevent the spread of tooth decay and last for several years, often over a decade. At Serene Smiles, we offer both amalgam (silver) fillings and composite resin to accommodate any needs. We also offer dental sealants to help prevent tooth decay all together.
If one or more of your teeth has been broken or badly damaged by decay, your dentist may decide that removing the tooth is the best option. During this relatively simple procedure, your dentist will loosen and remove the affected tooth while you rest comfortably under general anesthesia or nitrous sedation. After the jaw and gums have healed, a dental implant or partial dentures can be used to replace the missing tooth.
Do you experience severe pain while chewing? What about lingering tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures? You may have an abscessed tooth that requires a root canal. Modern root canals are common procedures that help millions of people each year get out of pain. Don’t be afraid! Come to Serene Smiles and let us help you get out of pain.
Nitrous Oxide is one of the most powerful tools our staff uses to ensure a calm, relaxing and pain-free experience. Your dentist will administer a small amount of nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen, which is breathed in through the nose. You will remain awake but relaxed as the staff at Serene Smiles carefully crafts your smile to its healthiest, most beautiful state! If you experience anxiety when going to the dentist or have a hard time sitting still for long periods of time, nitrous sedation could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
TMJ Treatment & Mouthguards
Often caused by arthritis, injury or teeth grinding, TMJ disorders can make simple tasks like eating or speaking very uncomfortable. Thankfully, there are options to relieve your pain, such as jaw exercises or customized mouthguards to wear at night. And the staff at Serene Smiles is ready to discuss your options and any questions you may have about your jaw issues.
