Treatment & Services
Dentists help patients maintain their oral health and treat issues involving the teeth, gums, and jaw. One of the
most common reasons for seeing a dentist is to have a teeth cleaning and exam, which patients should undergo twice
a year. During this exam, a dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth and check your mouth for any developing issues.
They may also take X-rays of your mouth to see if there are any problems with decay in crevices they can’t see with
the naked eye.
Dentists also fill cavities, perform root canals, pull teeth, and place implants, crowns, or bridges. Many people
also go to the dentist for cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening or veneers, which improve the appearance of
the mouth. Prices for these services can vary greatly depending on the area; many dentists offer specials for new
patients, so you may want to shop around before committing to a particular practice.
