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 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.
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.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Scheduling regular Comprehensive Dental Exams with Dr. Anderson can ensure you don’t develop any serious oral hygiene conditions. Comprehensive Dental Exams may include: Full Mouth Series/Panoramic, Dental Impression Analysis, Oral Cancer Screenings, Periodontal Screening and more.
