It’s no secret that good oral health is tied to good overall health, so it is important to stay current with dental cleanings and examinations. Are you looking for a dentist who will take care of your entire family? Dr. Amy Trujillo of Summit Dental can meet almost all your dental needs under one roof. Let us preserve your healthy smile with our family dentistry services.
Preventive Dentistry Maintains Your Brilliant, Healthy Smile
Routine cleanings and exams are the foundation of healthy teeth and gums. During cleanings, we can remove bacteria and plaque from hard-to-reach places. Annual exams allow Dr. Amy Trujillo to detect any changes in the health of your teeth and gums in order to catch infection or decay in its earliest stages. An important part of your annual exam is the oral pathology exam in which Dr. Trujillo evaluates the soft tissue for any changes or abnormalities. Early detection of oral cancer is critical to preserving wellness.
Restoring Dental Health
When teeth are severely decayed, infected, or missing, Dr. Trujillo can dramatically improve your smile with the following treatments:
- Root canals—This therapy saves your tooth. During a root canal, infected tissue is removed and canals are filled to prevent future problems. Your tooth structure is covered with a crown to improve both function and appearance.
- Tooth extractions—When a tooth can’t be saved, Dr. Trujillo can remove it, protecting the surrounding teeth and preserving your comfort.
- Tooth replacement—Dentures and dental implants restore your smile after tooth loss, allowing you to eat properly, speak clearly, and feel good about your appearance again.
Sedation Dentistry Offers a Relaxing Visit to the Dentist
When you need to have a cavity filled or get new dentures, local anesthetic is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth to ensure that you do not experience discomfort. Some procedures, however, may require additional precautions. For tooth extractions or root canals, you may prefer nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a safe, odorless gas that when breathed in, offers nearly immediate relaxation and the pain prevention.
We Cater to Kids
Not every dentist offers pediatric dentistry services. Treating smiles that are just developing takes special care because in addition to laying the foundation for healthy teeth and gums, we are establishing good hygiene habits and positive feelings about dentistry. We offer several treatments to protect your children’s teeth, including:
