General Dentistry include a wide array of dental services and procedures. The goal of General Dentistry is to help preserve your natural teeth, promote your best oral health, and protect you and your family from more serious health care issues which may be detected with regular dental visits.
GENERAL DENTISTRY PROCEDURES WE PROVIDE
At Harvest Dental, we provide families just like yours with a wide range of dental procedures and services to protect your oral health including:
Scaling & Root Planing
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal therapy may be required to help save an infected or abscessed tooth. When decay spreads past the enamel layer it can cause an infection to the soft pulp in the tooth. This infection can be very painful and spread to surrounding teeth. During a root canal treatment, Dr. McDonald carefully removes the infected pulp from the center of the tooth. The canal is then treated with medicine, root canal filling, and ultimately a permanent dental crown is usually required.
While our goal is to preserve the health of your natural teeth, there are circumstances which require a tooth extraction. Advanced tooth decay, severe infection of the tooth roots, and tooth crowding are all reasons Dr. McDonald may recommend a dental extraction as part of your treatment plan. When a tooth must be removed or repaired through surgery, it is known as oral surgery. Whether it is an impacted wisdom tooth or you are in need of a dental implant, we will do our best to make certain you are comfortable before and during the surgery. After the procedure, you will be given instructions to help make recovery as painless and fast as possible.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Dr. McDonald and the team at Harvest Dental has performed thousands of wisdom teeth removals across the state for patients just like you. The average adult mouth will hold 28 teeth, however by late teens to early 20s many adults may have 32 teeth. The final four teeth are known as the “wisdom teeth.” For most patients, there is not enough room for the additional teeth and they must be removed to avoid oral healthcare issues. As part of your complete exams, Dr. McDonald will use x-rays to evaluate the current position of the teeth and predict if they could pose a future problem.
Tooth Decay / Cavities
Thanks to safe and effective sedation treatments available at our dental office, you do not have to let Dental Anxiety prevent your treatment. At Harvest Dental, we offer Conscious Oral Sedation to help you relax and feel more comfortable during your dental appointment. If you would like to learn more about our sedation options or see if you are a good candidate for conscious oral sedation, please contact our office to speak with one of our friendly treatment coordinators.
