Whether you are new to the Tucson, Arizona area or looking for a new dentist that provides comprehensive services for you and your family, you've come to the right place. At Tucson Biological Dentistry, we offer a full range of services for patients of all ages. Our priority is always providing the best in class care, whether you visit us for a routine cleaning and check-up or for cosmetic enhancements or restorations. Below, we share some of the most common dental services that we provide.
General dental services focus on monitoring the development and health of the mouth. That is done through routine examinations and cleanings, x-rays, preventative treatments, and education. Our role is to provide patients with the knowledge and tools he or she needs to keep their smile healthy.
We recommend that patients of all ages see us regularly every six months for check-ups. These check-ups are tailored based on the patient's age, medical history, and needs. For instance, with children, we monitor the development of the jaw and the emerging of teeth. We teach children how to brush and floss properly, the importance of good nutrition, and strive to make our appointments fun and relaxed.
As children get older, we may recommend certain services such as orthodontics, wisdom tooth removal, etc.
While the primary focus of cosmetic dentistry is enhancing the smile's appearance, many cosmetic dental procedures are also linked to improving oral health – which is a win, win solution. These are some of the most common cosmetic dental services we offer:
Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are used to cover the front of natural teeth and alter their appearance. The thin strips are custom-made to cover a wide range of imperfections such as closing gaps, minor misalignment, uneven lengths, improper symmetry, and more. Depending on the need, veneers can be used on a single tooth or several teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings – Even with diligent brushing, sometimes cavities occur. Having them filled does not have to compromise the appearance of the smile. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material that is matched to the tooth's enamel to ensure it blends in seamlessly. Because the fillings are placed directly into the tooth, composite resin fillings are more conservative than alternatives such as silver amalgam fillings.
When issues such as gum disease or tooth loss occur, we're here with dental services that give you back functionality, improve oral health, and restore the appearance of your smile. Some common restorations we provide include:
Dental Implants – The premier option for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are posts placed directly into the jawbone, taking the spot of the natural tooth root. The implant integrates into the jawbone for stability and prevents the bone from deteriorating. Depending on the number of teeth missing, dental implants may be completed by attaching a crown, partial dentures, or a full set of dentures.
Periodontal Treatment - Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults and is often preventable through practicing good oral hygiene. When gum disease does develop, treatment is imperative to prevent tooth and bone loss. We offer comprehensive periodontal treatment that includes at-home regimens along with deep cleanings.
