We take pride in our ability to create beautiful, healthy smiles with the wide range of dental services we offer. Everything from routine cleanings to root canals are important steps to improving your smile, health and confidence.
Everyday brushing isn’t always enough to remove or prevent decay-causing buildup like tartar. Routine cleanings are scheduled at least every six months as a preventive measure to maintaining oral health through thorough cleaning and decay screening. Patients who have periodontal problems may be recommended to have more frequent cleanings.
Sometimes the nerve and tissue inside the tooth becomes painfully infected or dies. By removing the damaged tissue, cleaning and sealing the tooth, the need for potential tooth extraction can be avoided safely.
Once an implant has been placed by a specialist, an abutment and crown must be placed to complete the restoration. New crowns or partials can be created to restore the aesthetics and function of implants.
Extracting a tooth or multiple teeth is a last resort when repair is not practical. Afterward, there are several options for replacing extracted teeth that will preserve the aesthetic and physical integrity of the patient’s smile.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire tooth. Its purpose is to provide protection and restore the shape, size and general appearance of a damaged or weak tooth.
Partials and dentures are offered to provide an aesthetic and functional solution when teeth are missing. Dentures are used in cases where no teeth remain, while partials are used to replace single or multiple teeth as they require the presence of some healthy teeth for support.
When plaque is allowed to harden into decay-causing tartar, special tools are required to remove it. Periodontal cleaning is required to remove tartar deposits below the gum line, as it can lead to serious periodontal disease.
Teeth whitening is a fast and effective way to improve the appearance of a smile. Weaverville dentist Dr. Godley offers take-home kits to give patients the ability to achieve in-office results in the convenience of their own home.
Children and young adults are the most prone to decay because of their diets and less diligent cleaning habits. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are pain-free, effective ways of preventing decay in these age groups.
Dr. Godley maintains the highest level of technology in his office, which includes digital X-rays, intraoral cameras and discontinuing out-of-date procedures such as amalgam fillings.
