Another critical aspect of general dentistry is to ensure optimum oral health for patients of all ages. Dr. Rowntree achieves this by reviewing your oral history and providing a thorough examination during your regular checkups. This enables us to treat issues as early as possible before they jeopardize your oral health.
We use advanced technology to get a comprehensive view of your smile, which allows Dr. Rowntree to effectively diagnose and deliver the most effective care.
Cavities are caused by tooth decay, which is a bacterial infection that eats away at your teeth. Dr. Rowntree can use a filling to restore the tooth to optimal health.
A filling is a procedure that consists of removing the decayed part of the tooth and filling the space with a tooth-colored, composite resin to protect it from further damage.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection that appears when there’s a buildup of food debris in the mouth.
Recent scientific discoveries link gum disease to several severe medical issues, including heart disease, strokes, respiratory disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, premature childbirth, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.
If you have a large cavity that requires more work than a conventional filling, Dr. Rowntree may recommend an inlay, onlay, or dental crown. Each of these options is best suited for different areas of the tooth and the severity of the damage.
All of these options will restore functionality and strength to your smile while maintaining a natural aesthetic that you’ll cherish for many years to come.
It’s estimated that 10% of Americans avoid treatment from a dental professional due to an intense fear of the dentist or dental procedures.
If you’re feeling anxious about receiving dental care, Dr. Rowntree features sedation dentistry which elicits a more relaxed and enjoyable treatment.
Each year over 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer. Unfortunately, the survival rate is low because it’s often undiagnosed until it reaches the later stages.
During your routine checkups, Dr. Rowntree will conduct a full screening for oral cancer so that we can detect issues early enough to provide treatment.
