Tatnuck Family Dental Care is proud to offer the following services to our patients as a part of our family and general dentistry in Worcester, MA.
One of the keys to bright, beautiful, strong teeth is regular dental cleanings and exams. Dental check-ups monitor your health, existing conditions, the status of any apparatus in your mouth, and can help stop cavities from forming in the first place. Exams and x-rays are used to ensure that there are no problems hiding beneath the surface of teeth or gums that could potentially cause problems down the road. Dental cleanings can get plaque and tartar out in ways that regular brushing and flossing cannot.
Exams and cleanings are highly recommended every six months at Tatnuck Family Dental Care for patients of all ages to ensure that your smile remains healthy throughout your whole life.
Often added to regular cleanings, fluoride treatments can help protect your tooth’s enamel by fortifying it against cavities and decay.
As a part of our routine dental exams, we provide oral cancer screenings. This is used as a preventive method. If there is a precancerous or cancerous activity, regular screening can detect it early on and make it easier to treat.
Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating that can be used to prevent cavities and plaque from forming on the chewing surfaces of the back molars. They are most often done on children but may also be recommended for adults.
Our Worcester dentist, at Tatnuck Family Dental Care provide dental fillings for damaged teeth. We offer a wide variety of filling materials to fit your exact needs from composite resin to porcelain to silver amalgam. Fillings are used to restore and repair mild to moderate tooth decay and damage. For more serious decay or infections, root canals or extractions may be needed.
For more serious tooth decay or infections, root canal therapy may need to be performed. The use of anesthetics has made root canals virtually pain-free. There are times, unfortunately, when a tooth may need to be removed for dental or orthodontic purposes. For extreme cases, our dentist in Worcester, MA, may recommend that you have a tooth or teeth extracted and have a treatment plan ready to stop any shifting or negative effects from occurring.
