Comprehensive Dental Care for Patients
Dr. Terrance L. Jeter & Associates wants to ensure patients of all ages get the comprehensive care they need for a beautiful and healthy smile. Our general & family dentistry includes the following dental services:
Dental Exams and Cleanings
Our caring team keeps your teeth clean and healthy while helping you avoid severe dental damage and pain. We clean the plaque and tartar from your teeth and check for any signs of decay, infection, or other issues.
We’re able to capture comprehensive images of your teeth and mouth’s underlying structures with X-rays. These images allow us to identify any issues with your oral health that we cannot spot during a visual examination.
Fillings & Sealants
To resolve issues with cavities, we’ll clean out the affected tissue and fill the space with composite material to restore your tooth’s biting surface and appearance. We can help you avoid cavities with sealants that cover your tooth’s biting surface to keep out harmful bacteria.
Removing a tooth may be necessary when you have a severe infection, sustained damage due to decay or trauma, or if it’s causing issues with the surrounding teeth or tissue. When your tooth is causing problems or jeopardizing the welfare of your oral health, we carefully extract it and discuss suitable replacement options.
An infection inside your tooth’s root canals and tooth pulp can cause pain, sensitivity, and endanger your oral welfare. During root canal therapy, we resolve the pain and save the tooth by removing the soft tissue, filling the empty chamber and root canals, and sealing the tooth to prevent any further infection.
If you’ve lost all your teeth, custom-made complete dentures fit over your gums and restore your bite and appearance with realistic artificial teeth that look and function like your real teeth. For patients who have lost only a few teeth, partial dentures fill the gap and securely attach to the adjacent teeth.
Fluoride is one of the best ways to help your teeth stay strong and resistant to decay and damage. Our fluoride treatment is typically for children and teens to enhance their teeth’s health and protection.
Grinding your teeth, also known as bruxism, can lead to worn down and damaged tooth surfaces and, potentially, TMD (temporomandibular disorder). Let us help you treat and prevent damage from bruxism at either of our offices.
Whether you need a mouth guard while you sleep at night to prevent snoring or bruxism, or you play sports and need to protect your teeth, we’re here to help. We custom-create each mouth guard to fit your teeth and your needs precisely.
