General Dentistry

Routine visits to a general dentist can help maintain good oral hygiene. From deep cleanings to gum disease and tooth decay examinations, consistently visiting a dental professional at the Kansas City office of James R. Anderson, DDS can prevent any existing conditions from developing too far.

Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are a basic and necessary appointment for everyone, regardless of age or oral health. Consistent dental cleanings remove the plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth that regular home brushing and flossing might miss, and coat the teeth with an enamel-protective substance.

Even individuals without other existing oral conditions should make regular dental cleaning visits. In many cases, a dental cleaning is the first appointment where a more serious condition is first noticed. Without proper oral care, gum inflammation or tooth disease can occur.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Scheduling regular Comprehensive Dental Exams with Dr. Anderson can ensure you don’t develop any serious oral hygiene conditions. The following are examples of Comprehensive Dental Exams that you may want to consider scheduling:

Full Mouth Series/Panoramic: A panoramic image of your teeth can give Dr. Anderson a clear view of both your top and bottom teeth. These images help Dr. Anderson and his team see the roots of your teeth, how they are growing in, and more.

Dental Impression Analysis: A Dental Impression Analysis creates a 3D imprint of your mouth and teeth that gives Dr. Anderson a better understanding of your teeth alignment or irregularities.

Oral Cancer Screenings: Dr. Anderson can check your mouth for any growths, abnormalities, or sores that may be signs of oral cancer.

Periodontal Screening: A periodontal screening checks for healthy gums, periodontitis, or gingivitis.

TMJ Screening: A TMJ Screening examines the joint where your skull and lower jaw connect, known as your Temporomandibular Joint.

Dental Caries and Cavities Treatment

Dr. Anderson can provide dental fillings or dental crowns to repair any tooth decay, dental caries, or cavities you may have. The style of treatment that is required will depend on how extensive the decay is.

Dental fillings are used most frequently when repairing tooth decay by sealing the area affected by the decay.

Dental crowns are used for more extensive damage or root canals, when the decayed tooth area needs to be covered rather than filled.

Bruxism and Clenching Treatment

Bruxism is defined as the grinding or clenching of the teeth, most frequently occurring in someone’s sleep. This type of behavior can crack and damage the teeth, cause flattened teeth, or lead to jaw or facial pain.

In some cases, Bruxism can be treated with mouth guards or similar dental accessories, but if it is not addressed quickly enough, you may need to undergo dental procedures to repair the side effects of grinding and clenching.

Other Oral Treatments

Dr. Anderson can also help with a variety of other oral conditions, such as treating root canals, halitosis, dental extractions, and more.
