Oral Cancer Screening

During your dental exams with us at Smile On Dental Studio in Clayton, we not only take our time to remove plaque and tartar and examine your teeth for other problems, but we also complete an oral cancer screening. Any subtle changes in the lining of your mouth can indicate a bigger problem. If we see anything noteworthy, we will take a biopsy. Detecting oral cancer early on saves many lives over the years. Our dentist and team are trained to recognize signs of abnormalities in your oral tissue.

Oral Hygiene

Who doesn’t love the feeling of your teeth after a dental cleaning? After we polish your teeth, nothing quite compares to the glossy smooth surface of your teeth. Our dental hygienist performs dental cleanings to give you optimal dental health that goes far beyond just a smooth shiny surface. With regular dental cleanings, our hygienists remove bacterial deposits like tartar and plaque that often lead to tooth decay. This also helps prevent gum disease and gives you fresh breath. Oral hygiene is a critical component of preventive dentistry. Make sure to never skip a dental cleaning for best results.

Unfortunately, not all adults take proper care of their teeth. It’s more important than ever to visit the dentist when you’re an adult so your teeth stay healthy. Adult dentistry at Smile On Dental Studio helps our Clayton patients understand the causes of dental problems. We create a personalized dental care routine to keep your teeth looking healthy and great.

Ortho Screenings

Although a straight smile looks beautiful, it actually helps your teeth stay healthy. If you or your child is in need of braces or another orthodontic treatment, our team at Smile On Dental Studio is happy to provide you with an ortho screening, even for young children. We often monitor children’s teeth early on to determine if they will need braces later. We’re committed to providing optimal healthcare for all ages of your family.

Fillings

Say goodbye to unsightly metal fillings. At Smile On Dental Studio, we help fill cavities and restore small areas of teeth using composite fillings. Larger cavities benefit from ceramic fillings (inlays and onlays). Your restoration will look completely natural while also protecting your teeth and restoring its strength. We are happy to provide a mercury-free solution.

Dental Crowns

Sometimes dental damage or decay becomes severe enough to require a dental crown to restore a tooth back to full health and function. Dental crowns are a perfect solution to restore the strength, function, and cosmetics back to a tooth while protecting the natural tooth underneath. We also use crowns to replace missing teeth with dental implants or bridges.

Root Canal Therapy

Once a tooth becomes infected, it either needs to be extracted or have a root canal performed on it. We prefer to give our patients root canals so they can preserve their natural teeth for as long as possible. Visit us for a root canal to restore the health and function of your natural tooth so you don’t need to have it extracted.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease can harm your oral health as well as your overall health. Symptoms can be subtle at first, but by the time they’re obvious, the risks are serious.  Visit our dentist for gum disease treatment to eliminate the infection and protect your health from additional harm.
