As you can see, Dr. Schaefer has a variety of treatments available to help address your smile’s needs. He provides detailed general dentistry examinations every six months for his patients, during which an attentive oral exam will allow him to check for cavities or other damage. The subsequent deep cleaning removes plaque and other debris from your mouth to help your smile truly shine. Regular general dentistry appointments can prevent your overall oral health from falling to the wayside and reduces the likelihood that you will need dental correction in the future.
Sometimes tooth infections occur despite even the most attentive at-home regimen. If you have a constant toothache, you may be affected by an infection within the enamel of your tooth. Dr. Schaefer can perform a root canal to heal your tooth and prevent it from being extracted! It’s important that you immediately seek dental help if you believe that you may have an infected tooth, because problems within a single tooth can quickly spread throughout the entire mouth. Dr. Schaefer and his Independence, MO team are here to correct your dental dilemmas when they occur.
Do you have tender gums that bleed when you brush your teeth? This is one of the most obvious indicators of gum disease, which can lead to major problems like tooth loss. Dr. Schaefer provides gum disease therapy to stop the progression of gum disease, so you can stay smiling fully.
Teeth are susceptible to many problems, such as falling out or even being knocked out. If you need to replace a tooth (or teeth), Dr. Schaefer can examine your mouth to decide if crown and bridge therapy would be a viable option. A dental bridge is a row of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and is attached permanently to the mouth with dental crowns.
Are you satisfied with the appearance of your teeth? If there is anything that you would like to improve, try speaking with Dr. Schaefer about possible cosmetic dentistry solutions. Cosmetic bonding can rebuild a damaged tooth, teeth whitening can brighten an overall row of teeth, and veneers can create the movie-star smile you’ve always dreamed of having. There is most likely a great answer to help you feel confident with cosmetic dentistry at our Independence, MO dentist office.
