Services FDC Performs

It is generally recommended to have a routine dental exam and cleaning every 6 months.  A dentist may recommend these check-ups more or less frequently based on your specific needs.  These visits are very important because it helps to reduce bad, infectious bacteria that cause health problems not just in your mouth but your whole body!  It also helps catch problems when they are small and easier to fix!

Don’t we all wish we were Superman?  We’re not and we don’t have x-ray vision so we can’t see things (like cavities) between teeth.  Dental x-rays are generally recommended every 12 months to check for cavities.  Every 3 years an x-ray that shows all of your teeth and jaw bones is recommended to help catch problems we can’t see with our mortal vision.  Again, a dentist may make specific recommendations based on your needs.  Don’t worry, at the FDC we use something called ‘indirect digital imaging’, a fancy term that means you get less radiation than regular old film x-rays.

When you have a cavity, it keeps getting worse until you have a dentist put a filling in it.  Yes, we do fillings.

In cases when the cavity has gotten too deep and damaged the nerve of the tooth our dentists perform limited root canal treatments.  If the decay is too deep or too many teeth are decayed we refer the children to a pediatric dentist who is a specialist in treating children.

In some limited cases our dentists may provide a type of crown to cover a severely decayed or broken tooth.  We do not provide orthodontic or bridgework for children.
