Our Array of Services
At Leading Edge Oral Care, we offer a spectrum of services tailored to every dental need:
- Crowns & Bridges
- What they are: Dental crowns are custom-made caps placed over damaged teeth to restore their shape, size, and function. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth by spanning the space where the teeth once were. They are anchored by the adjacent natural teeth or crowns.
- Why they're implemented: Crowns are utilized to protect weakened teeth from further damage, restore broken teeth, or cover discolored teeth. Bridges are used to restore the natural function of teeth, maintain the shape of the face, and distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
- Cleanings & Exams
- What they are: Dental cleanings involve removing plaque and tartar deposits that have built up on teeth over time, while exams are thorough assessments of your oral health by a dentist.
- Why they're implemented: Regular cleanings and exams are essential to prevent dental problems such as cavities and gum disease, ensuring early detection and treatment of any potential issues.
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- What it is: This field of dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of teeth, gums, and/or bite. It includes procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding.
- Why it's implemented: Cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance aesthetic appeal, boosting confidence and self-esteem. It can correct issues like discoloration, chipped or misshapen teeth, and gaps.
- What they are: Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They can be full (replacing all teeth) or partial (filling in the spaces created by missing teeth).
- Why they're implemented: Dentures help restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth, allowing for better chewing ability and improved speech while also enhancing facial appearance.
- Root Canals
- What they are: A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly decayed or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it.
- Why they're implemented: Root canals prevent the need for tooth extraction by preserving a tooth that might otherwise die and need to be removed. They alleviate pain and swelling associated with a tooth infection.
- Emergency Dentistry
- What it is: This is the immediate treatment of dental injuries or severe oral conditions that require urgent care.
- Why it's implemented: Emergency dentistry addresses sudden dental issues that might lead to permanent damage or require more complex treatment if left unattended. It provides immediate relief from pain and prevents the spread of infection.
- What they are: An extraction involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone.
- Why they're implemented: Extractions are done when a tooth is too damaged to repair. This could be due to trauma, decay, or crowding. It’s also commonly done when wisdom teeth don't have enough room to grow properly.
- And More!: Whatever your dental needs, chances are we offer it.
