When you make an appointment with Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants, you’re putting your oral health first which, in turn, has a positive impact on your overall well being. General dentistry deals with preventive treatments, oral hygiene and dental discomfort or pain. Here are some of the general dental services we offer at our Pueblo West office.
Come in twice a year for a routine check-up to make sure we’re keeping on top of any potential dental issues. Our exams are comprehensive and include cleanings and X-rays if necessary. We accept patients from birth on up - it’s never too early to learn about good oral health!
Get a filling that matches the color of your tooth, leaving it looking natural and feeling stronger. While nobody likes having a cavity filled, Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants uses dental technology that will have your teeth fixed up in no time.
There’s no need to be anxious about a root canal procedure. Dr. Ross can perform effective treatments and cleanings, to relieve dental pain and increase the chances of keeping your natural tooth or teeth.
To protect your teeth from the possibility of decay, Dr. Ross may recommend dental sealants. Usually more common for children, dental sealants are a thin plastic coating that are painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect them from bacteria and tooth decay.
A crown is a protective cap that’s put over a damaged or decayed tooth. Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants can provide custom made same-day crowns for patients if a tooth can’t be fixed with a simple filling. Crowns are shaped to look and function like your natural tooth..
Gum health is a very important factor in your overall oral health. If you have swollen or bleeding gums, make an appointment to see your dentist. Mild gum disease, such as gingivitis, is quite common and usually easily treatable with a professional dental cleaning and an improvement in your oral hygiene routine. Advanced cases of gum disease, or periodontitis, may require more dental intervention so come and see Dr. Ross to work out a treatment plan.
Having a tooth pulled is the last thing most people want but sometimes it’s unavoidable. The good news is that the friendly and professional team at Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants are here to make things go as smoothly and painlessly as possible.
