Proper dental care should always begin at an early age to ensure great habits that add up to a lifelong commitment to proper dental health. Your entire family will get great care from us.
Regular cleanings and checkups are extremely important for ongoing oral health. It is during these cleanings and checkups that your dentist will be able to check for signs of infection and decay, while also performing a professional cleaning. It’s also important to visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups to check for signs of oral cancer so it can be addressed immediately.
If you are looking for a cleaning and checkup in Bloomington MN, look no further than Oxboro Family Dental. We provide outstanding cleaning services, and your oral hygienist will carefully check your entire mouth for any signs of disease, decay, or other oral health issues. This includes checking your gums, teeth, and even your jawbone.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while for a cleaning and checkup, that’s okay! We’re happy to see you and help you.
If you don’t already have your next cleaning and checkup scheduled, reach out today to get an appointment in the books!
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while and you haven’t been taking great care of your oral health, there is a good chance that you have plaque buildup and even tartar. While during a regular cleaning plaque can be removed, if the issue is advanced enough a regular cleaning may not be enough. You may need a full scaling and root planing (also known as a “deep cleaning”) to remove the buildup and resolve your gum disease.
It's best to catch gum disease early on when it is still at the stage of gingivitis. If the problem isn’t addressed with a deep cleaning early enough, though, it can lead to periodontitis. This form of gum disease can be treated but it can’t be reversed. With that said, you can still ensure your oral health with a deep cleaning and proper oral care after the procedure. Even with periodontitis, you can avoid further damage and ensure your teeth stay firmly in place.
If your gums are bleeding, they are inflamed, you are feeling discomfort, your teeth are shifting, or you are having any other issues with your gums, make sure you set an appointment for a checkup as soon as possible. From there, we can address the issue and—if it’s gum disease—perform a deep cleaning.
If you are looking to take your smile to the next level, you may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. This form of dentistry isn’t just one type of service. There are a few different services that fall under the category of “cosmetic dentistry.” All of these services help give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Some cosmetic dentistry services include:
Some of these services aren’t just cosmetic, though. Fillings, for instance, help to provide bite support and prevent infection.
Whether you are looking for a cosmetic dentistry service to help with bite support and chewing or you would simply like whiter teeth, Oxboro Family Dental can provide you with the best cosmetic dentistry in Bloomington MN. Once your cosmetic procedure has been performed, you are sure to be happy with your new smile!
If you have crooked teeth, crowding, or any other alignment issues, you may be considering a solution. As an adult, though, you may not want to deal with metal braces. If this is the case, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you.
Invisalign helps with a variety of different alignment issues. In order to address these issues, custom, clear trays are produced that are swapped out every two weeks. Over time, your teeth begin to shift into place and your alignment issues are resolved
Not only is Invisalign effective, but many patients prefer it for aesthetic reasons. Invisalign is nearly invisible. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing Invisalign!
While most people think of aligners only for aesthetic reasons, they also can be very important for overall oral health. Crowded and crooked teeth can be difficult to brush and floss around. This can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health issues. Teeth aligners like Invisalign resolve alignment issues that can lead to poor oral health.
With advances in Invisalign over the years, it is now possible for Invisalign to address most of the same issues that traditional braces address. This makes it a great solution for a variety of different alignment issues.
If you have alignment issues that need to be addressed, contact Oxboro Family Dental. We’ll set you an appointment to see if Invisalign is right for you.
A dental emergency is very serious and needs to be addressed immediately. It’s important if you are experiencing a dental emergency that you don’t wait for your next scheduled cleaning and checkup. Instead, you’ll want to contact Oxboro Family Dental and let us know that you require immediate emergency service.
If you are wondering if you are experiencing a dental emergency, please reach out. We’ll discuss the issue you are having with you and better determine if you require an immediate appointment. If you do, we’ll make sure to get you in as soon as possible to resolve your dental emergency.
If you have a tooth or teeth that have fallen out, been knocked out, or need to be extracted, you may be considering teeth replacement. While there are a few different teeth replacement options that may be available, one of the best is dental implants.
Dental implants are dental prosthetics that involve the placement of a titanium rod in the jawbone of a patient that holds a prosthetic crown in place. As these teeth replacement options are secured in place, they provide extra security and strength. Dental implants can also be made to look very similar in appearance to natural teeth.
You may be wondering if you need a tooth replacement in the first place—especially if it’s not a front tooth that is missing. The answer is, “yes.” There are some major oral health reasons for getting a tooth replacement. If you don’t, over time, your teeth will begin to shift. This leads to crowding, crookedness, and impacting. Crowding and crookedness can make it difficult to take care of your oral health, which may lead to cavities and gum disease.
Dental implants also help to maintain the integrity of your jawbone. This is a factor that many people don’t consider. Over time, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate if there isn’t a tooth or a replacement in place to ensure its integrity.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, reach out to Oxboro Family Dental about teeth replacement options. We’ll take a look and see if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you are, we’ll set an appointment to start the dental implant process.
We accept insurance from a variety of different providers. These include Cigna, Delta Dental, Premier Dental Network, and Health partners. If you have any questions about insurance coverage, please let us know. Also, reach out to your insurance provider. They will be able to help answer questions about coverage.
