You’ve probably heard the expression “prevention is the best medicine.” At Pleasant Valley Dental, we take this to heart in the way we practice dentistry. We love seeing your smiling face in our chair, but we don’t like seeing you in pain or having to get major restorative work. We would much rather see you twice yearly for your regular cleanings and exams so we can catch small problems before they progress. That goes for your kiddos, too!
You can brush and floss like a pro and come see us every six months like clockwork—which you should!—but sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. Whether your teeth are decayed, broken, infected, or missing, we’re sure to have a solution that suits your needs. We use the latest technology and durable, natural-looking materials so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence again. We can even complete many restorations like crowns in a single visit!
If you’re hiding or embarrassed by your smile, you understand the impact something as seemingly superficial as the look of your teeth can make for your confidence and quality of life. A smile is the first thing we notice about others, and it’s how we express our own feelings of love and joy. If your smile isn’t perfect, you may not realize that a quick fix can make all the difference. Pleasant Valley Dental offers a number of cosmetic services–from simple bonding treatments to clear aligner orthodontics to full smile makeovers.
If you’re missing teeth or suffering from ill-fitting dentures, we would love to help you secure your smile with dental implants. Dental implants are currently the gold standard when it comes to modern tooth replacement solutions, because they’re the only way to replace the tooth root, which is an essential component of a healthy smile and jawbone. Our doctors have the additional education and the latest technology to surgically place and restore dental implants right here in-house, and we also offer a wonderful alternative to dentures with the comprehensive Teeth-In-A-Day system.
At Pleasant Valley Dental, we’re proud to offer a number of services you may not find at other dental offices in town. Whether you need any type of oral surgery, you suffer from jaw pain or chronic migraines, you need help with sleeping or snoring, or you’re an anxious patient that needs a little extra TLC to relax in the chair, we’ve got you covered.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a toothache or a knocked-out tooth—or any other type of dental emergency—you should call us right away! Dental problems will only get worse the longer you wait to see the dentist. If you’re unsure whether your situation qualifies as an emergency, call us and we’ll help you decide if it’s urgent or if it can wait until tomorrow. If it’s after hours, we have an emergency answering service and our doctors are on-call for true emergencies. We’re here for you when you need us!
