Preventive dental care is essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy, so Dr. Patrick Stuckey offers all the treatments your family needs to keep their mouths in top condition.Dr. Stuckey on general dentistry Read Transcript
General dentistry encompasses a wide variety of dental procedures, from getting your teeth cleaned to perio procedures, having root canals done, fillings, crowns. I like doing a wide range of procedures. I don't like just doing one thing over and over and over. I like having a filling going in one chair. I like doing crowns in the next chair, have an emergency patient come in, take care of them. I enjoy the hustle and bustle of a general practice.
Our services will:
- Keep your teeth looking and feeling great
- Help prevent cavities
- Help you avoid gum disease
- Help you form good oral hygiene habits
Take Advantage Of Preventive Dental Care
Among our general dentistry services:
- Dental exams so Dr. Stuckey can address your concerns and identify any dental issues that need to be addressed
- Dental cleanings to remove cavity-causing plaque and tartar from your teeth
- Fluoride applications to help keep your teeth free of decay and reduce tooth sensitivity
- Dental sealants to give your back teeth and other areas an added layer of protection against cavities
Dr. Stuckey and our dental hygienists are also happy to show you the proper brushing and flossing techniques and to answer any questions you have about oral care. The old adage about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure is certainly true when it comes to dentistry!
Protect Your Teeth With Mouthguards
Dr. Stuckey can fit you for custom mouthguards that will protect you from all kinds of dental damage. If you or your kids participate in sports or other activities, a mouthguard will shield teeth from bad throws, falls, and aggressive opponents. A nightguard you wear while you sleep will prevent the worn-down teeth and headaches that can result from bruxism (teeth grinding).
Because custom mouthguards fit better than those purchased from a retailer, they’ll be more comfortable to wear and do a better job protecting your teeth.
