With experienced general dentists focused on preventative, restorative, and cosmetic treatments, we have the resources and skills to care for each patient’s needs. We not only help improve your dental health but also create a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.
General & Preventative Services
One key aspect of preventative dentistry and your overall oral health is routinely seeing your dentist for exams. Exams enable our team to check your teeth for any cracks, chips, cavities, and signs of gum disease.
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that go over the grooves of teeth to prevent food and bacteria from wedging into the spaces of your teeth. Dental sealants work particularly well with children and teens in preventing cavities and tooth decay on the chewing surfaces of their teeth. Dental sealants are a quick and easy procedure.
Routine teeth cleanings are a vital step in maintaining your oral health. Teeth cleanings from our registered dental hygienists remove tartar buildup and clean areas that brushing may have missed. Routine teeth cleanings help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other periodontal diseases.
Patient education is an intricate part of our preventative dentistry practice. We teach patients how to brush properly, floss, and maintain their dental health. This information is key to promoting quality dental health for life.
Digital x-rays help our dentists know the most about you and your oral health. With digital x-rays, we can see fine details of teeth, jaw and teeth alignment, and information on wisdom teeth. Once we have this information, our doctors can proceed with the best practices. Digital x-rays are important to preventative dentistry and show us what is happening on the “inside” of your teeth and mouth.
Dental implants are a great option for patients who are missing a tooth or multiple teeth. They are long-term replacements that are surgically placed to your jawbone. Dental implants allow patients to regain the function and confidence of dependable teeth. Dental implants can also be used to retain or support dentures.
Dentures, or false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth that have been lost due to trauma, tooth decay, or other oral diseases. They are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth. Patients can receive full dentures for patients who need to replace a full set of teeth. Partial dentures are available for patients who need to replace a few missing teeth.
Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations used to replace a missing tooth. This permanently joins an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Bridges are used to replace a tooth that has been lost due to trauma or oral disease.
To treat a cavity, our team will remove the diseased area of the tooth and use fillings to replace the area of the tooth that has been lost. Fillings can also be used to repair cracks or broken teeth that have been worn down. This type of restorative dentistry will withstand chewing and should last for many years without the need to be replaced.
Tooth-colored crowns can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. With our dentists’ expert craftsmanship, tooth-colored crowns can be sculpted to closely replicate the look of a natural tooth and offer desirable strength and resilience to your smile.
Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth, ultimately improving your smile. Veneers can help alter the size, shape, and color of your teeth. This type of cosmetic dentistry procedure is excellent for patients who want to improve their teeth’s color or alter teeth that are worn down, chipped, cracked, irregularly shaped, uneven, misaligned, or have gaps.
Tooth bonding is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help repair damaged teeth and give you another reason to smile. Tooth bonding can repair a decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored tooth in a single visit.
Dakota Family Dentistry firmly believes that good oral health starts in childhood. That’s why we offer pediatric dentistry services to promote dental health in children. We also work with parents to educate them on the best practices for children’s dental health.
We want to help build the relationship between your child and our team, starting with their first dental visit. You should schedule an appointment once your child receives their first tooth and no later than one year of age. Pediatric dentistry helps prevent tooth decay, provides education in preventative home care, and teaches positive dental hygiene habits that children can carry throughout life.
For some people, visiting the dentist or even the thought of a dental procedure can lead to anxiety. At Dakota Family Dentistry, we work with you and your family members to create a comfortable dental experience every time you step into our office. Conscious sedation or IV sedation allows you to enter a state of relaxation while staying awake during your dental procedure. You remain free from pain while allowing you to respond to your dentist’s questions and commands. Conscious sedation and the use of nitrous oxide are proven practices that have been around for over 30 years.
Endodontics, often called root canals, is a dental specialty focused on the dental pulp’s care and treatment. Our team is specially trained in the area of endodontics. Endodontic procedures are needed when pulp tissues deep within the tooth have become damaged by decay, trauma, or infection. Maintaining a healthy tooth pulp is important because it contains blood vessels and nerve tissues that keep the tooth alive and thriving.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is an important oral surgery where the patient’s wisdom teeth, or third molars, are removed because there is not enough space for growth. Sometimes wisdom teeth grow improperly and do not fully come out of the gum. This means the teeth are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be quite painful, resulting in swelling and even infection, requiring them to be removed. Also, if there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in the mouth, they can push other teeth out of alignment, causing further dental problems. Wisdom teeth removal is a common oral surgery procedure that most dental patients undergo to maintain excellent dental health.
Dakota Family Dentistry specializes in extraction. Extraction is the removal of teeth from one’s mouth. This type of oral surgery is performed for various reasons, including extensive tooth decay that has led to a “dead tooth,” when a tooth is impacted or problematic, or when space needs to be made for orthodontic work.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Scaling & Root Planing
Laser Gum Therapy
Dakota Family Dentistry is proud to offer 21st-century technology to enhance your smile and improve your overall oral health. Our commitment to patients includes continuous education and access to state-of-the-art technology that will deliver results.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you are suffering from sleep apnea, we can help solve the problem with a custom snore appliance. This moves your lower jaw forward, preventing the blockage of your airway. Our snore appliances are comfortable and easy to use.
