If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Grubb is happy to provide sedation so you can relax during your treatment. Dental care is very important to your health, so we want to ensure your anxiety doesn’t prevent you from receiving the treatment you need.
Depending on your needs, we offer three forms of sedation to help you relax in the dental chair. Dr. Grubb’s preferred method is IV sedation because it allows him the most control, though he’s also happy to offer nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation.
If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed, we can restore it with a dental crown. Crowns restore strength and function to your tooth, allowing you to chew your favorite foods without difficulty. Best of all, they’re custom-made to blend in naturally with your smile.
As an alternative to crowns, we also offer dental bridges. Bridges rely on your surrounding teeth to support your new artificial tooth, effectively closing the gap in your smile. They look and function like natural teeth, and they’re fixed in place to create a durable, long-lasting restoration.
The veneer process is typically completed in just two visits to our office. Once your treatment is finished, you can enjoy the flawless smile you’ve always wanted.
If your tooth has been damaged by decay, we can restore its appearance and strength with a tooth-colored filling. These fillings fortify your tooth against future infection and they’re made from durable materials to ensure long-lasting results.
Our fillings precisely match the shade of your teeth, so they’re virtually invisible. They’re also a highly convenient treatment that can be completed in just one appointment. If you want to treat a cavity and guard your tooth from harmful bacteria, a tooth-colored filling is the ideal solution.
It’s very important that you visit the dentist at least twice a year for regular checkups. During these checkups, one of our hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, removing plaque and tartar. After your teeth are clean and sparkling, Dr. Grubb will perform a complete dental examination, checking for signs that indicate problems such as gum disease, oral cancer, and more.
These checkups are important for a variety of reasons. First of all, though daily brushing and flossing helps a lot, you still build up bacteria in your mouth over time that only a dentist can remove. If you skip regular checkups, your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease is greatly increased.
Additionally, many serious oral health problems aren’t easy to detect on your own. The earlier an issue is detected, the greater chance we have of treating it.
