Friendly Dental Services From A Qualified Professional

Why You Need A Dentist

There are several reasons why the services of a qualified dentist are needed. The most obvious indication that you require dental services is when you have tooth decay-causing mild or excruciating pain. You do not have to wait for that to happen before you take action. That is why it is recommended to see your family dentist every 3 – 6 months. We can detect problem areas in their early stages with our powerful X-rays, intraoral cameras, and digital imaging equipment. And when we do, we can take the necessary steps to either prevent or restore the tooth to its original healthy state.

Our Services Include But Are Not Limited To:

Teeth Cleaning

We suggest patients have a routine dental cleaning exam every six months or as recommended by Dr. Berndt. During our teeth cleaning procedure, plaque and calculus will be removed from your teeth, leaving behind a bright and polished smile. X-rays may need to be taken to help detect possible cavities between teeth that the naked eye cannot see.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays are a great preventative, diagnostic tool that provides essential information not visible during a regular dental exam. Our dental team will utilize this vital information to safely and accurately detect any dental abnormalities and then create an accurate treatment plan just for you.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a great agent used to help prevent tooth decay. It is naturally present in different amounts in almost all foods and water supplies. The benefits of using fluoride have been well known for over 50 years and are supported by many health and professional organizations.

How do I get fluoride?

  1. As a topical fluoride, this helps strengthen the patient’s teeth once they have erupted by getting into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, helping to make the teeth more resistant to decay. We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels.
  2. Systemic fluoride strengthens teeth that have erupted and those still developing under the gums. Systemic fluoride is gotten from most foods and our water supply. It is also available as a supplement in drop or gel form and prescribed by your dentist or physician. Usually, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children up through the teen years.

In our fluoride treatments, we apply this vital element directly to your teeth. This repairs your enamel by restoring the lost calcium and phosphorus – the two minerals that harden your teeth and protect them.

Crowns And Bridges
Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with a bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and aesthetics. Several crown material options are available, and our doctors will discuss these on an individual basis depending on the area of the mouth that needs to be restored.
Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The failure of the tooth can create more significant problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort and can look unsightly. With bridges, our doctors will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.
Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)
Root canal therapy is needed when a cavity has reached the tooth’s pulp, causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth. We recommend regular checkups with your dentist to avoid and prevent the need for endodontic therapy. But once the pulp has become infected, it must be treated to avoid further issues since it cannot heal independently. Some signs that a pulp is infected include sensitivity to hot or cold foods or liquids, pain, swelling, or even a bad taste in the mouth. For some patients, no symptoms are apparent, and they are unaware a problem even exists until their dentist sees them for an exam.
When you undergo endodontic therapy, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp and disinfect the tooth’s canals. Once the area has been disinfected, the tooth canals are filled with a special material to prevent further infections and help in the healing of the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.

Complete dentures are used to replace a person’s teeth when they are all missing. Removable dentures are designed to restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. They are crafted to fit your mouth comfortably and snugly. When in place, dentures can:

  • Help restore your ability to eat and speak
  • Replace your missing teeth
  • Prevent facial sagging
  • Improve the appearance of your smile

We can create and place your custom complete dentures in just a few visits. Your dentures will be made to look and feel like natural teeth so that you can feel confident every time you smile. We invite you to call our office today if you are missing teeth to learn more about the benefits of dentures.

At Fort Lupton Dental Group, we specialize in implant restoration, which allows us to restore your old implants and make them look new again.
