Routine Dental Cleaning - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Routine Dental Cleaning

It is suggested that patients should be seen for a dental cleaning and routine exam every six months or as recommended by the doctor. During the cleaning, plaque and calculus will be removed from your teeth, leaving behind a bright and polished smile. Sometimes, x-rays need to be taken to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Cosmetic Dentistry - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services that allow our patients to achieve the smile they have always dreamed about. We are able to reshape your teeth in a variety of ways; including the use of veneers or bonding, natural-looking tooth-colored fillings, full-coverage crowns, and teeth whitening. Our office has recently introduced Botox® to enhance your whole look!

Teeth Whitening - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Teeth Whitening

Soon after starting treatment at our office for teeth whitening, you will start to see a whiter and brighter smile. With our whitening services, the effects of coffee, smoking, tea, and other causes for tooth discoloration, will slowly disappear, leaving a beautiful white smile. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with the doctor to see if you’re a candidate for teeth whitening.
Cosmetic Restoration - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Cosmetic Restorations (White Bonded Fillings)

If you dislike the look that old silver restorations give your mouth, white fillings are the perfect solution! Your old silver restorations will be replaced with tooth-colored fillings, resulting in a smile you can be proud to show off. White fillings are also bonded to the natural tooth structure to increase the overall strength of the tooth. Silver (amalgam) fillings have no bonding properties.
Crowns and Bridges - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with a bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and aesthetics. Several crown material options are available, and the doctor will discuss these on an individual basis. Recommendations will vary, depending on the area of the mouth that needs to be restored.

Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of a tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and can look unsightly. With bridges, the doctor will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.

Dental Implants - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Dental Implants

If you happen to be missing one or more teeth, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you! Dental implants are natural-looking, permanently anchored into the patient’s jawbone, and unlike traditional bridges, no preparation of adjacent teeth is required.

It is important to replace missing teeth because if left with spaces, your teeth can shift and cause a variety of other dental problems. Dr. Meg has extensive experience in treatment planning and designing implant solutions that are custom-tailored for each individual patient. When your dental implants are placed, your jaw will bond and attach to the implant, making them very strong and functional.

Endodontic Therapy and Root Canals - Sturgis Smiles Family Dental - Sturgis, SD

Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)

Root canal therapy is needed when a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth. Regular checkups with your dentist help to avoid and prevent the need for endodontic therapy. But once the pulp has become infected, it must be treated to avoid further issues since it cannot heal by itself. Some signs that a pulp is infected include sensitivity to hot or cold foods or liquids, pain, swelling, or even a bad taste in the mouth. For some patients, no symptoms are obvious, and they are unaware that a problem even exists until they are seen by their dentist for an exam.

When endodontic therapy is performed, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area has been disinfected, the canals of the tooth are filled with a special material to prevent further infections and help in the healing of the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.
