General Dentistry in Westphalia
At Westphalia Dental, we want to be a part of your journey to a stronger, brighter smile. Whether that means maintaining your dental health with cleanings and routine exams, or if you’re in need of treatment to correct common dental issues, we have a wide range of services that will keep you smiling.
As part of our commitment to giving our patients beautiful smiles, Westphalia Dental is a metal free practice. This means that if your tooth has been damaged by decay, our dentist, Dr. James M. Chung will restore it back to health with a natural-looking, durable composite filling rather than an amalgam filling. During your treatment, Dr. Chung will remove the decayed part of your tooth, clean the area, and fill it with composite that matches the natural color of your teeth. When your procedure is complete, your tooth and your confidence will both be restored.
Tooth extractions are a relatively simple and common procedure. Dr. Chung may suggest an extraction if you have a severely decayed or damaged tooth, or when it is necessary to remove wisdom teeth. Dr. Chung will administer a local anesthetic during your treatment that will make the procedure virtually painless. Once your tooth is extracted, we have a wide range of restorative options to fill the gap that is left behind. If you have a damaged tooth, or if your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, give us a call today to go over your options.
Root canal therapy treats and save millions of teeth each year, and this procedure is a common solution for decayed or infected teeth. Signs that your tooth may be infected or decayed are extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, and tenderness while eating. If a root canal is right for you, Dr. Chung will clean the damaged pulp of your tooth, then fill and seal the space. Afterward, a crown may be necessary to protect and restore the tooth to full functionality. If you are experiencing signs of a damaged or decayed tooth, set up an appointment today and we will help get you out of pain.
Periodontal disease affects millions of Americans, but this common dental issue shouldn’t keep you from receiving quality, judgement-free care. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria in dental plaque that inflames and damages your gums. If your gums bleed when brushing or flossing, or if you notice your gums receding from your teeth, these are signs that you may have periodontal disease. At Westphalia Dental, we have treatment options that will restore your smile back to health. Don’t wait to schedule an appointment, call us today! Early treatment can prevent possible pain, bleeding gums, and tooth loss.
