General Dentistry Services
Malan Family Dentistry provides a large variety of various dental services. We can help patients of all ages with their oral health needs. We often deal with common treatments including fillings and repairs, but we also provide cosmetic dentistry, extractions, root canals, and dental implants. If you would like to learn more about our treatments and different procedures, contact our Ogden dental office.
Fillings and Repairs
Restorative dental care is commonly used on teeth with serious decay, large fillings, trauma, and unbalanced dental forces. We find that the majority of fillings and repairs are caused by improper brushing and flossing, cracked or broken teeth, loose or missing fillings, and an unbalanced bite. Different materials can be used to repair the teeth, but we typically prefer to use composite and porcelain material as they blend with the natural color of your teeth.
Cleaning and Hygiene
Proper oral health requires daily cleaning of your teeth and gums. Plan on brushing at least twice a day, and flossing at least once a day to maintain proper oral health. Our cleaning and hygiene services help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Half of Americans have periodontal disease. With so many people dealing with gum disease, we work hard to ensure our patients take the right steps each day to prevent it. For patients with current periodontal disease problems, we provide in-office treatments to clear infection from the gums, and remove unbalanced, excessive forces placed on individual teeth during function.
Children have a difficult time caring for their teeth and gums. We teach parents and children how to properly clean their teeth and why it is important to clean them. We use dental sealants when children’s permanent molars start to emerge from the gums. Dental sealants help to protect the teeth from decay, where the deep fissures and grooves in permanent molars are smaller than the finest toothbrush bristles.
Oral Cancer Screening
One of the services we provide during your cleaning and exam is to screen for oral cancer. Our screenings are designed to check for signs of oral cancer, and to assist patients currently dealing with symptoms related to oral cancer.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Our cosmetic dentistry services are designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry will improve your bite, change the color of your teeth, and shift the alignment of your teeth.
Dental veneers are used to re-create the natural look of teeth. Dental veneers are a very thin piece of porcelain that covers the front of the tooth to change the shape, color, and look of a tooth. Dental veneers are custom made to your teeth, and are bonded to the front surface of the tooth.
Your eating habits will play a role in the color of your teeth, and can cause them to have stains and yellowing. If you want to change the color of your teeth, we can help with our teeth whitening services.
