The most well known types of dental care generally fall under the general category: preventive, cosmetic, and restorative. The Riverside dentists at Dental Associates of Riverside aren’t satisfied with just sticking to the well known, however. We go above and beyond traditional dental care to provide several specialties all under the same roof. This provides convenience and options to our patients.
Orthodontics, Periodontics, and Endodontics
In addition to dental cleanings and exams (which fall under the realm of preventive dentistry) dental fillings, teeth whitening, dental crowns, and countless other preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services are standard at most comprehensive dentistry offices. However, we prefer to go the extra mile in Riverside by offering orthodontic, periodontic, and endodontic services.
Specifics on Our Dental Specialties
- Orthodontics: Orthodontics refers to the alignment and function of the teeth and jaw. Most patients associate orthodontic treatment with traditional metal braces, but now it’s easier than ever to achieve straighter teeth and a better bite with innovative (and nearly invisible) orthodontic appliances. Misaligned teeth can have an impact on your dental hygiene and oral health, so we will beautify your smile as well as restore health and function to your teeth with orthodontic treatment options.
- Periodontics: Periodontics refers to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Periodontal (gum) disease affects approximately 80 percent of American adults. This makes it the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Often, patients don’t know that they have gum disease until their gums begin to show visible signs of infection or their teeth become loose. It is our goal to detect warning signs of periodontal disease as early as possible to ensure timely and effective treatment of this serious oral condition.
- Endodontics: Endodontics refers to the health of the inside of a tooth. Every tooth in your mouth is alive, but infection, injury, and tooth decay can damage a tooth to the point that it cannot survive in a healthy manner on its own. As an alternative to tooth extraction, we offer endodontic services to restore function, health, and appearance to your damaged tooth. The most common type of endodontic treatment is a root canal.
