Here at For You Dental, we offer general dentistry services to ensure that patients of all ages can get the primary dental care they deserve. We believe that maintaining your oral health is crucial to your overall health that’s why dental examination, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the oral problems of our patients is our top priority.

Some of the general dentistry services that For You Dental offers include the following:

Dental Fillings

A dental filling procedure refers to the process of removing the decayed material of a tooth damaged by decay and restoring it by cleaning the said area and filling it with a filling material. The filling material can be made of gold, silver amalgam, glass ionomer, porcelain and composite resin or “tooth-colored” fillings.

While a tooth damaged by tooth decay may be the most common reason for dental fillings, this procedure is also ideal for those who have cracked teeth, broken teeth and teeth damaged because of bruxism.

Our dentists at For You Dental here in Dallas, TX, can help determine the extent and location of your tooth decay as well as the type of dental filling material that is best for your teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath your gums to support a replacement tooth. They provide a strong and permanent foundation on which dentists can mount replacement prosthetics such as dentures, dental crowns and bridges. With dental implants, replacement crowns, dentures and bridges stay stable while you’re talking, eating or drinking.

If you’re looking at dental implants as an option, For You Dental is here to help you determine if dental implants are right for you. Before you receive implants, dentists at For You Dental will first determine if you have healthy gums and adequate jawbone to support the implants.

Dentures

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth as well as the surrounding tissues of the missing teeth. While dentures are usually made of plastic/acrylic or nylon, there are some also which are made of metal.

There are two kinds of dentures:

  • Complete dentures are for patients who have lost all their teeth in one or both arches.
  • Partial dentures are for those who have lost only one or some of their teeth either because of tooth damage or trauma and injury caused to the teeth.


Whatever the type of denture to be used, they are made to fit snugly over the gums to reduce instability and ensure proper function.

To know your denture options, visit For You Dental in Dallas, TX, for an examination. Dentists at For You Dental will ensure that your dentures will fit well, look natural and feel comfortable so that you’ll retain your beautiful, confident smile.

Root Canal

Root canal treatment is used for treating the infection at the center of the tooth. It refers to treatment used for saving or restoring a severely damaged or badly infected tooth which may be caused by a deep cavity, leaked filling and tooth fracture, or other trauma. Root canal treatment involves removing the infected pulp of the tooth and cleaning and disinfecting the canal before it is filled and sealed.

Root canal therapy will not only prevent the tooth from dying or degenerating, but it will also prevent the infection from the badly damaged tooth from spreading to the other surrounding healthy teeth.

Extractions

Tooth extraction refers to the complete removal of the tooth. Other than root canal therapy, another option that you can have for your severely infected or badly damaged tooth is extraction. The difference is that once your permanent tooth is extracted, it’s gone forever.

Tooth extraction can also be performed for a variety of reasons other than a badly damaged or severely infected tooth such as when there is overcrowding, when there is impacted wisdom teeth or when there is a risk of infection after an organ transplant.

If you’re wondering which option is right for you when it comes to your infected or damaged teeth, you can always visit For You Dental in Dallas, TX. Dr. Ashlea Drakeford and her professional dental care team at For You Dental will conduct a dental examination to determine the best treatment for your dental problems.
