Whether you need just a simple cleaning or your oral health requires more extensive work, our general dentistry services can help return you to optimal oral health. Smiles Ahead Family Dentistry in Columbus offers many treatments designed to enhance your oral health, including:
One important aspect of maintaining optimal oral health is consistently attending your checkups with the dentist. These checkups include thorough cleanings, exams, and oral cancer screenings that are performed to keep you free from tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease, and other oral abnormalities.
If you are missing many or even all of your natural teeth, there is hope to have a functional, complete smile once again. We offer complete dentures and partial dentures that are designed to fit your mouth and restore function and beauty to your mouth. When in place, your custom dentures will look and feel like natural teeth and enhance your ability to chew, speak, and digest.
Smiles Ahead Family Dentistry is equipped with digital radiography, the latest and safest dental X-ray technology. With digital radiography (digital X-rays), we can determine the state of your oral health and begin your personalized treatment plan faster than ever before.
When teeth have minor fractures or decay, we will place dental fillings to restore them. At Smiles Ahead Family Dentistry in Columbus, we offer both amalgam (silver) fillings and composite (tooth-colored) fillings. Consult with our dentist today to discover which filling material is right for you!
For your comfort, we offer nitrous oxide sedation (more commonly known as laughing gas). During your appointment, we control your level of sedation so that you remain completely safe and relaxed. The laughing gas wears off just a few minutes after your procedure, so you can safely drive yourself home.
Teeth that are significantly decayed or infected may require a root canal. At Smiles Ahead Family Dentistry, our gentle dentist will perform the root canal with utmost care and expertise over one or two appointments at our Columbus, OH, office. Following the root canal, a dental crown will be placed to protect the tooth from further damage and decay.
