What is General Dentistry?

At Bear River Dental, our general dentistry services focus on maintaining your oral health and preventing dental problems from developing. We are committed to providing comprehensive care for our patients. Our team of general dentists will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals.

Preventive Care  

At Bear River Dental, preventive care is one of our top priorities. We provide regular dental exams and cleanings to help you maintain a healthy smile. Our team will check for any signs of decay and gum disease during your dental exam. We will also provide personalized guidance on properly caring for your teeth and gums to prevent future issues.

Exams and X-Rays: Dental exams are essential for maintaining good oral health. Your dentist will check for any signs of decay, infection, or other issues during a dental exam. Dental x-rays can also be taken during a dental exam to give a more comprehensive view of the teeth and mouth. X-rays can detect issues that may not be visible during a visual exam.

Cleanings: Dental cleanings are an essential part of oral health. Regular dental cleanings help to remove plaque and tartar build-up, reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease, and can help to keep teeth looking and feeling healthy.

Sealants: Dental sealants are a thin coating of plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent cavities. They are a safe and effective way to protect the teeth from decay and can last up to 10 years with proper care. We recommend dental sealants for children and adults.

Fluoride: Dental fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen the teeth and prevent tooth decay. It is found naturally in many foods and water and can also be found in some toothpaste, gels, and mouthwashes. When used regularly, dental fluoride can help to reduce the risk of cavities and other dental health problems.

Restorative Treatments

If you have cavities or other dental issues, our team of general dentists can provide restorative treatments to repair and restore your teeth. We offer a variety of procedures, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Our team will work with you to find the best treatment option for your individual needs.

Dental Fillings: Dental fillings are a common dental procedure used to repair teeth damaged by decay. They involve removing the decayed area and then filling that space with a material such as composite or porcelain to restore the tooth’s structure and function.

Root Canals: Root canals are a dental procedure that involves removing the infected, damaged, or dead pulp from inside a tooth. The remaining space is then filled with a special material to seal it, restoring the tooth to its normal shape and function. 

Crowns: Dental crowns are dental restorations that completely encase a tooth or dental implant. They are used to strengthen a tooth, improve aesthetics, or restore a tooth that has been significantly damaged. Crowns are typically made from ceramic, metal, or both materials.

Bridges: Dental bridges are a form of dental restoration used to replace missing teeth. A bridge is essentially a false tooth held in place by the two teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges can restore both the appearance and function of the teeth and can help to improve the overall health of the mouth.


Cosmetic Dentistry  

At Bear River Dental, we offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments to enhance the appearance of your smile. Our team of general dentists can provide treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers, implants, and crowns to improve the appearance of your teeth. We also offer orthodontic services to help straighten your teeth and improve your bite.

Bonding: Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be used to repair chips, cracks, discoloration, and even gaps in teeth. It involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the affected area, which is then hardened with a special light and trimmed to the desired shape. The results are natural-looking and can last several years with proper oral hygiene habits.

Veneers: Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite material custom-made to fit over a person’s teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, making them look whiter, brighter, and straighter. We can also use them to fix chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth.

Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to brighten and whiten your teeth. It involves using a special whitening gel and a tailored light to break down deep-set stains and discolorations, leaving you with a brighter and healthier-looking smile.

Emergency Services  

We understand that dental emergencies can happen anytime, which is why we offer emergency services at Bear River Dental. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Our team of general dentists is available to provide same-day care for a dental emergency.

Chipped or Broken Teeth: A chipped or broken tooth can be painful and cause discomfort when eating or drinking. It is essential to visit the dentist as soon as possible to assess the damage and determine the best course for restoring your tooth.

Knocked-Out Tooth: A knocked-out tooth is never a pleasant experience, and it can cause significant pain and discomfort. It is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible to help reduce the risk of permanent damage and ensure that the tooth is properly restored or replaced.

Abscess: A tooth abscess is a severe dental infection that results in a build-up of pus around the affected tooth. It is usually caused by bacteria that have entered the tooth through a crack or cavity and can be very painful. Treatment usually involves antibiotics and drainage of the abscess.
