Family General Dentistry in O’Fallon, MO
For first-class general and family dentistry in O’Fallon, MO, visit Dr. Eric Hurtte and his caring, professional team at Boardwalk Family Dental. We offer the full range of dentistry services at our state of the art facility, from routine teeth cleanings and checks to more complex restorative work.
Routine Teeth Cleaning
Regular dental cleanings are an essential part of an oral hygiene program. They help to fight plaque, which is the major cause of tooth decay, as well as gingivitis and serious gum disease. While daily brushing and flossing are your first line of defense against plaque, professional cleaning is more thorough than the best you can do at home. Cleanings are the most important part of family and general dentistry in O’Fallon, MO, because the tartar that accumulates at the gumline can’t be removed with proper brushing alone. Good hygiene and regular dental cleanings are cost-effective, too. It costs much more to have teeth repaired and replaced than it does to have regular exams and cleanings.
A porcelain dental crown is used to strengthen and protect a tooth structure that has become damaged or weakened due to decay, fractures, or dental work such as fillings, bridges, or root canals. It can also improve the appearance of damaged and discolored teeth. Made from full porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all-metal, crowns are one of our most common services in general dentistry in O’Fallon. Find out more about dental crowns in O’Fallon, MO.
Crown and bridge work, also described as restorative dentistry, refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed, or lost. Crowns and bridges can correct missing teeth, bite dysfunction, and other functional or structural problems. A crown can restore an individual damaged tooth back to its original form and function, while a bridge can replace one or more teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and known as ‘“fixed” dentistry, as opposed to removable appliances or partial dentures. Find out more about dental bridges in O’Fallon, MO.
