Oral health is a critical component of your general health. Having healthy gum tissue and teeth promotes your bite function, enhances your smile appearance, and reduces your need for undergoing frequent restorative dental procedures. At Bergman Family Dental, we offer comprehensive, personalized dental care to patients of all ages.
We understand that every patient visiting our dental clinic in Ballwin, MO should receive the dental care they deserve. We have invested in not only modern dental technologies including digital x-rays for a detailed and thorough view of oral cavity structures, but also sedation dentistry for a comfortable and relaxed experience while receiving your treatment. Our general dentistry procedures include:
A large part of our practice involves family dentistry. We take great pride in treating every member of the family, from infants to grandparents! These treatments are often simple and straightforward, designed to prevent potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of professional cleaning and check-up exam. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for adults, and fluoride treatment for children. If we notice any instances of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need restorative treatment.
Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Dr. Bergman will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common then you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Leading-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, and dental veneers & bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.
Knowing what to do during a dental emergency can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth. If you have knocked out a tooth, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. If your tooth is re-implanted within the hour, the chances are strong that it will reattach to the socket. Dr. Bergman always leaves time open for emergency appointments. A chipped tooth, however, may not necessarily constitute a dental emergency. Severe pain is a clear indicator that you need immediate treatment. A crack or fracture may also indicate a serious problem.
We want you to enjoy your healthy smile and maintain strong, functional, beautiful, and healthy teeth and gums. Visit Bergman Family Dental or call (636) 391-9666 to set up an appointment with our general dentist near you for a consultation.
