In addition to your at-home dental habits, routine cleanings are essential to maintaining great oral health. Our preventative dentistry services focus on helping you avoid or lessen the risks of cavities, gum disease, gingivitis, enamel loss, and more. By practicing good oral health habits, you can also lower your risk of other health problems including diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and more.
Routine Cleanings & Exams
An important part of maintaining your oral health is attending regular cleanings and exams with your dentist. These appointments are essential for patients of every age. We work to make these appointments as comfortable as possible for each patient. During your appointment, we will remove any tartar or plaque buildup from your teeth and examine your mouth for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, or irregularities.
If you have a life-threatening or severe injury, call 911 or go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. For all of your emergencies, Dr. Treiber offers a 24 hour, 7 day a week emergency service. He is dedicated to eliminating any dental issue you may be having.
Our practice was the first in Montcalm County to incorporate digital x-rays into our services. This type of x-ray uses small sensors instead of traditional film. Among the many advantages to this type of x-rays are: it uses 80-90% less radiation, saves time, and allows your dentist to view enhanced digital “x-rays” of your mouth and teeth. These images give us the clearest view of your tissues while reducing the amount of radiation you are exposed to.
After a cavity is removed, a dental filling helps prevent future decay by saving natural tooth structure. A tooth-colored or composite filling provides a more conservative restoration option than silver/amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are virtually undetectable, as we carefully match the composite materials to your natural tooth color. This type of filling can also improve the strength and stability of your tooth, as well as protecting against broken teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
When a cavity or infection has reached the pulp of a tooth, a root canal — or endodontic therapy — is necessary. This procedure may also be necessary if you have experienced severe trauma to a tooth. During a root canal, we will clean out and disinfect the interior of your tooth, and remove the infected pulp. We will then seal the canals of the tooth to prevent future bacterial infections. To restore the tooth to normal function, we will place a filling or crown on your tooth. This also creates added strength and stability.
We provide a number of surgical procedures to help relieve pain, treat trauma or an infection, and restore your dental health. These range from dental implant restorations, tooth extractions, and emergency dental care.
A number of factors can cause tooth discoloration. These include smoking, coffee, tea, and other causes. Teeth whitening treatments help this discoloration to slowly disappear. We offer a range of whitening options and will work with you to determine which treatment will provide you with the beautiful, bright smile you deserve. To see if you are a candidate for teeth whitening, please schedule a consultation today!
Dentures & Partials
Dentures provide a great restoration option for patients missing most or all of their teeth. For patients retaining some of their natural teeth, partial dentures may be recommended. Both partials and full dentures are designed to fit snugly and comfortably into your mouth. Dentures not only improve the appearance of your smile, they restore your ability to eat, speak, and help to prevent facial sagging. Our team and doctor will work with you to determine which restoration option best fits your dental health needs.
A dental extraction — such as removing your wisdom teeth — will be performed if removing a tooth is the best option for restoring your dental health. If an extraction is right for you, we will explore the available replacement options for the tooth. Replacing the extracted tooth is important for preventing future problems with your oral health and surrounding teeth.
Traditional or metal braces are the most common and popular type of dental braces. This type of braces are permanently bonded to the front of a patient’s teeth. They straighten teeth using metal archwires and brackets. Today’s metal braces are more comfortable, lighter, and more attractive than metal braces used in the past.
Crown & Bridgework
A dental crown may be necessary if your tooth is in an advanced stage of tooth decay or cannot be fixed with bonding material. This type of restoration helps to restore aesthetics, strength, and function to the affected tooth. The material used for your crown depends on what area of your mouth is being restored.
If you have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury, a dental bridge can be utilized. If you leave a missing tooth unfixed, it can create larger problems for you and your dental health. Not only can it cause your teeth to shift and an unsightly smile, it can also result in pain and discomfort. A dental bridge closes the gap in your mouth and looks and acts like your natural teeth. To help maintain the positioning of the remaining teeth, a bridge is permanently cemented in your mouth.
Dental implants provide a permanent, strong replacement option for missing teeth. A dental implant consists of metal frames or posts which are surgically placed into the bone beneath the gums. The posts then fuse with the jawbone and provide stable support for dentures or restorations. In order to be a candidate for this procedure, you must have sufficient jawbone structure. In addition to individual implant restorations, we provide implant overdenture services.
