At Clarksville Smiles’ family dental center in Clarksville, TN, helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.
Cleanings And Exams
To address potential complications as early as possible, we recommend that you visit our practice every six months for routine dental care. We will examine your gum tissue and teeth, take X-ray images, clean your teeth, and ensure there are no unwanted developments in your oral health.request an appointment
Periodontal Treatment and Charting
Periodontal treatment refers to treatment of gum tissue. Left unmaintained, gums can become infected, leading to gingivitis and periodontal disease, which can result in bleeding of the gums, abscesses, mouth sores, tenderness, and eventually, tooth loss. Regular checkups are important to gum health.request an appointment
Root Canal Therapy
Through root canal therapy, we can remove the diseased pulp tissue of an infected tooth, replace it with a substitute material, and prevent the loss of the tooth. This is accomplished by drilling a small access hole through the affected tooth, removing the pulp, then filling and sealing the tooth.request an appointment
Extractions and Wisdom Teeth Removal
If a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it can cause constant pain, impair function, and impact the health of surrounding tissue. In severe cases, it may be necessary to remove a tooth if it can’t be salvaged through other means, such a root canal, a dental crown, or periodontal surgery.request an appointment
Oral Cancer Screenings
We perform oral cancer screenings during routine examinations and cleanings. If tissue appears abnormal or looks conspicuously different, it may be an indicator of the development of cancerous tissues. By detecting and diagnosing cancer early, we can treat it before it has an opportunity to spread.
Sealants are typically reserved for children and teenagers, who are at increased risk of decay as their teeth are developing. A sealant is a thin plastic shell applied to the chewing surface of molars. This shell helps to seal the tooth and prevent bacterial infection by acting as a barrier.
A night guard is a simple dental appliance worn while you sleep to align your jaw and prevent grinding. Made from flexible plastic and designed to fit precisely over your teeth, your night guard will have little to no impact on your day-to-day routine, but will make a difference in your oral health.
An intraoral camera is a small imaging device that provides us with a better look at your teeth and gums. In essence, the intraoral camera is the magnifying glass of the 21st century. It provides our team with an up-close look of the teeth that allows for greater precision and superior results.
