The comprehensive website helps both current patients and prospective clients. DDADental.com puts the most-used information in a prominent place to avoid confusion.
Patients can learn about the practice, find it on a map, and make a one-click call on a smartphone.
The website also features a walkthrough of the many services offered.
Here are highlights of Dunedin Dental Associates' services:
Complete oral examinations, X-rays, and cleanings form the backbone of general dentistry. Preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants help to protect teeth from future damage.
Patients should see their dentist at regular intervals. Preventive care like cleanings and complete oral exams help patients maintain good dental health. Early diagnosis can mean less risk of significant tooth decay and tooth loss in the future.
Restorative dentistry involves returning your teeth to their original function. It can also brighten your smile. Fillings, crowns, bridges, and other dental appliances fall under restorative dentistry.
Restorative dentistry not only restores a patient's smile but also enhances their ability to chew and talk. When patients get fillings and restore broken teeth, they can also improve their general health.
Cosmetic dentistry is the art and science behind a beautiful smile. Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth due to visible stains and other imperfections. Patients regain their confidence after cosmetic dentistry procedures like veneers and whitening. They find more reasons to smile.
Getting a dental implant is more than merely cosmetic. When a gap exists between healthy teeth, the remaining teeth may shift and cause bite problems. It may also reverse past orthodontic treatments.
Dental implants may prevent bone loss in the jaw that occurs with missing teeth. They can make solid anchor points for full and partial dentures.
To place a dental implant, the dentist first extracts the damaged tooth. The implant is a titanium post that fuses with the jawbone. The area must heal for at least a few months before implanting.
After the implant has healed, the dentist places a crown, restoring the tooth. With the crown, an implant looks and functions like a natural tooth.
Dentists can treat sleep apnea and snoring. Signs of possible sleep apnea include:
- Stopping and starting breathing during sleep
- Loud snoring that disturbs others
- Daytime sleepiness and fatigue
Dunedin Dental Associates specializes in treating sleep apnea and snoring by creating custom sleep appliances. These appliances bring the tongue and lower jaw into correct alignment, keeping the airway open.
If dental appliances are not enough, the dentist can prescribe a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) system. This system keeps the airway open and promotes restful sleep.
Gum disease is a severe problem for many patients. According to the American Dental Association, advanced periodontal disease causes other health problems such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. For this reason, dentists encourage everyone with gum disease to address the problem and plan treatment.
Periodontal procedures include scaling, root planing, crown lengthening, bone grafting, and periodontal splinting.
Scaling involves removing the buildup of tartar from the teeth below the gum line. Root planing helps the gum adhere to a clean, smooth surface.
Crown lengthening procedures expose more of the tooth's structure. This technique helps when a patient does not have enough tooth surface to attach a crown.
The practice welcomes the youngest patients. Regular dental care should begin between six months and one year. Proper care of the primary teeth (baby teeth) can lead to fewer problems as an older child or adult.
Care for children includes cleanings, X-rays, and instructions for brushing and flossing. The primary goal is to help these young patients feel comfortable and safe at the dentist's office. Early care leads to better lifelong dental habits.
Dunedin Dental Associates offers same-day appointments during regular office hours as availability permits. If you experience a problem after hours, you can call the office for instructions.
