We provide a wide array of dental services that focus on preventing as well as solving oral health issues. We approach dentistry from a whole-body health perspective, which means that we aren’t just solving problems in a patient’s mouth; instead, we are helping them to become healthy overall.
The saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is completely true when it comes to dentistry. This aspect of dental care involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and help you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
During your regular visit to The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill, your dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. You’ll be able to take that advice and incorporate it into your brushing and flossing routine, potentially stopping a cavity or gum disease before it starts!
Prosthodontics and restorative dentistry focus on the aesthetic and functional restoration of damaged or missing teeth and are a significant part of the restorative dental services offered here at The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill. Additional training and years of experience are needed to effectively treat patients with complex cases, which is why so many of our patients trust our dentists with their restorative dentistry needs.
Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. If you find yourself uncomfortable with your smile and sometimes stop yourself from smiling then cosmetic dentistry is something you should consider.
We provide a wide array of cosmetic dental services at The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill. After a quick consultation, the dentist will be able to suggest cosmetic dental procedures that will not only you feel comfortable with your smile but will also help strengthen your teeth so that your smile can last your entire lifetime.
Having straight teeth isn’t just about making your smile look good (although it certainly helps); it’s about being able to chew food effectively, speak clearly, and not wear down the teeth unevenly. At The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill, we offer a clear braces so that our patients can get the properly aligned smiles they deserve without the treatment process being very obvious.
They are safety devices worn over your teeth to protect them from the trauma you might expect during the heat of competition. They are a requirement of nearly all contact sports – including boxing, football, and hockey – and are recommended as an extra safety measure for all others. An athletic mouthguard will protect you in the event a ball, object or person strikes your head. They are typically worn over one’s upper teeth. At our practice, we can create custom mouthguards to fit your mouth and prepare you for the fast-paced action on the court, ice, or field.
The dentist will monitor your gum health during every appointment for gum disease, and intervene at an early stage with more frequent professional teeth cleanings in order to renew oral health and prevent the advancement of gum disease to more severe periodontitis. At this stage, patients need more invasive treatments and may experience numerous adverse oral and overall health effects.
Sometimes it becomes necessary to extract a tooth, whether because it’s an impacted wisdom tooth, a baby tooth that isn’t coming loose on its own, or it is a tooth too damaged by injury or decay to be saved by endodontic treatment. That’s why we offer oral surgery such as tooth extraction at our practice.
