If you are looking for a reputable dental office, Bloom Dental Group can perfectly accommodate all your general dentistry needs. To learn about the wide range of services we offer, take a moment to review our general dentistry services:
An essential piece of maintaining life-long oral health, periodic dental cleanings will help prevent the most common types of dental health risks including gum disease, tooth decay and tooth sensitivity.
At Bloom Dental Group, we always recommend our patients see us at least twice every year to ensure they get enough check-ups to catch any possible signs of early problem areas. Some cases may require that a patient visit more than twice a year. If any signs of dental health risks such as gum disease are found, your dentist will often recommend a deep cleaning treatment. Deep cleaning involves the removal of tartar and plaque at and below the gumline as well as careful cleaning of the roots' surfaces (called root planning). This type of cleaning that goes beyond standard cleaning procedures is almost always the first line of preventative treatment for the more advanced form of gum disease, called periodontitis.
Dental Fillings & Crowns
Cavities, which are caused by food debris accumulating on the tooth’s surface and creating acid that gradually erodes the tooth, are one of the most common types of dental damage that we treat at Bloom Dental Group. Treating a cavity will often call for a dental filling. Modern fillings use composite materials that match the color of your teeth, meaning they can be placed in any area of the mouth, and do away with the unattractive look of porcelain or silver fillings. If you need to replace a silver or porcelain filling, we also provide painless removal and replacement treatments.
If your tooth is damaged, but not to the severity that it requires a dental filling, we may recommend a dental crown which provides protection to the tooth while also promoting a natural repair process. Dental crowns will often be used after any dental surgery.
If you have experienced problems while brushing due to the deep grooves of your teeth, dental sealants are the best solution for you. Dental sealants are made from tooth colored or clear-shaded resin and bonded to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth in order to fill in the pits and groves of the teeth making them easier to clean and creates a barrier that makes them less likely to develop tooth decay.
We will often recommend sealants for both children and adults. Children who have yet to lose their baby teeth may need help protecting their teeth while brushing to prevent infection or decay. Any adult can benefit from sealants as well, making it easier for cleaning out the food and plaque while also adding an extra layer of protection in preventing tooth decay.
