Services

 

Preventative Care

We offer a comprehensive range of preventative care, including cleanings, periodontal (gum) therapy, sealants. We also provide state-of-the-art, low emitting digital radiography to aid in early diagnosis of dental problems.

Pediatric Dentistry

Gadsden Dental is proud to offer dentistry to all ages, including children. We recommend a child make their first visit between the ages of one and two. We will work hard to ensure that your children have positive experiences at the dentist unlike many children from previous generations. We provide cleanings, sealants, fillings, and other services to children, recognizing that establishing good habits early will result in healthy teeth for a lifetime!

Dental Fillings

We use the latest tooth colored, light-cured resin and glass ionomer materials to fill teeth and restore them to their original condition. We always say, “God made our teeth best to start with” but we will strive to achieve restorations that look, feel and perform like natural teeth.

Crowns and Bridges

Ceramic crowns and bridges restore badly broken down and missing teeth. Dental materials used for these types of restorations have made tremendous strides in recent years. Our restorations contain no unsightly metal and remain beautiful for decades when cared for properly.

Endodontics (Root Canals)

When decay approaches the nerve of a tooth, it may be necessary to remove the nerve to prevent further pain. We offer this vital service in office. Many patients fear this procedure, however continued advancements in endodontic instrumentation allow for these procedures to be relatively quick and painless.

Oral Surgery

As a last resort, we will safely and effectively remove teeth beyond repair. We take great pride in being able to offer most types of tooth extractions right here at Gadsden Dental; however, in the incident where our practice is limited, we will gladly facilitate an appointment with a suitable oral surgeon.

Bite guards

We use the latest technology to fabricate custom bite guards in our laboratory. After taking custom impressions or scanning, a range of devices are available to address conditions such as snoring, grinding, and TMJ pain. In addition, custom sports mouthguards are a proven way to both protect teeth and prevent concussions!

Implants

Dental implants are a treatment option to replace missing teeth or stabilize a complete denture. Implants function exactly as real teeth. Implant restorations are provided here at Gadsden Dental, and we will help arrange appointments with dental specialists for the surgical placement of the implants.

Botox

Gadsden Dental offers Botox treatment for Therapeutic and Aesthetic needs. Botox serves as a safe and effective method to alleviate symptoms of TMJ pain and headaches. Botox is also used to enhance facial aesthetics by smoothing wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.
