Your General Dentistry Dentist In Chesterfield
At Chesterfield Smile Design near Creve Coeur and Town and Country, we offer all of the basics to keep your teeth clean and healthy. When you come to see us for general dentistry, we can ensure that you are enjoying optimal oral health.
Your semi-annual teeth cleaning is pivotal to your health and hygiene. Even
patients with great dental hygiene habits need a teeth cleaning twice yearly to remove the buildup of dental plaque that we all experience. Plaque is so sticky that it cannot be completely removed without the proper dental tools. Without attending your dentist for a regular teeth cleaning, this bacterial plaque can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Let our experienced and friendly dental hygienists take care of you as they administer a careful, health-promoting teeth cleaning.
Regular teeth cleanings are part of preventative care for your teeth. When you practice proper dental hygiene, you can avoid symptoms like toothaches, inflamed gums, and sensitivity. When you are consistent about coming in for cleanings and practicing good dental hygiene habits at home, you will avoid the need for extra dental work in the future.
Dental fillings are one of the most basic elements of general dentistry, because almost everyone experiences small amounts of tooth decay that can lead to cavities. Dr. Buchheit provides tooth colored dental fillings that can prevent decay from spreading. These dental fillings are both strong and subtle. When your cavities are filled with tooth colored material, no one will be able to see your dental fillings.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth can cause all sorts of problems, so the majority of people opt for their removal before they erupt. Wisdom teeth can ruin straight teeth by crowding them. They can also become impacted, or stuck underneath the gums, because there is not enough room in the mouth for the extra teeth. This can cause pain to the individual and damage to the surrounding teeth. Dr. Buchheit is able to remove wisdom teeth before they come in fully and cause any trouble with a simple extraction procedure.
Oral Cancer Screening
It is important to keep oral cancer screening in mind when it comes to general
dentistry. The earlier that we are able to detect signs of cancer, the better the chance is for successful treatment. We use the advanced VELscope Assessment System. This system uses natural tissue fluorescence to reliably detect any signs of oral cancer.
