Dental technology goes a long way in helping us maintain optimal oral health; however, nothing beats the basics of preventive dentistry.
It is essential that you and your family come to the dentist twice each year for cleanings and examinations. Visiting the dentist regularly means that we can spot any issues while they are still small, so treatment is easier—and less expensive.
At Valley Ridge Dental, we want to help you and your family keep healthy smiles that last a lifetime.
General and Preventive Care
Prevention is key, and examinations and cleanings are part of good oral health. Regular visits give Lake Elmo dentist Dr. Katie Daniels the opportunity to identify developing problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Both of these can be present with no symptoms at all.
If Dr. Daniels diagnoses you with gum disease, your chance for successful treatment is better the earlier we deal with it. After all, healthy gums provide the foundation for healthy teeth.
Radiographs are a valuable diagnostic tool that enables Dr. Daniels to check your oral health beyond what can be seen in a visual examination. We will make recommendations for x-rays based on your medical history and risk of developing disease.
Another vital part of your routine examination is oral cancer screening. Your dentist is probably the only health professional to look inside your mouth on a regular basis, so this is a crucial part of your oral health care.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Beautiful Smiles
We want you to enjoy good oral health, but we also want you to have a smile you love to show.
Let’s face it: We were not all born with the ideal straight, white smile. But with today’s cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as teeth whitening and veneers, a perfect smile is well within reach.
If you have missing or damaged teeth, you probably cannot chew properly, and you may have trouble speaking. It can also be embarrassing, which can have an adverse effect on your entire outlook.
We can fix teeth with a natural-looking dental crown that will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. For missing teeth—whether you are missing one or an entire mouthful—multiple options are available, including bridges, dentures, and implants.
