We provide simple restorative dentistry for the family as well as complex full mouth reconstruction. Appleton Family Dentistry puts an emphasis on preventative dentistry, which includes fluoride treatment, interceptive orthodontics and sealants for young children. We also provide some periodontal, root canal and oral surgery treatments to our patients. Our office is happy to treat people of all ages, including children.
No two mouths are the same. Every person is unique and has their individual health care needs. We get to know our patients during a pre-clinical conversation to discover their concerns about dental treatment in their own words. We then do a comprehensive dental examination with the appropriate digital x-rays, diagnostic models and photographs. This is usually followed by a free consultation to fully explain all aspects of the treatment necessary, to address any questions, and to help educate our patients.
For many years, the only option when putting a filling in a tooth was to use silver colored amalgam. Now for a typical filling, we use a tooth colored material that looks just like your natural tooth to a casual eye.
We are currently using high tech digital imaging instead of the traditional film packets. These images are instant and can be viewed on a computer monitor. Furthermore, it takes less radiation to form an image. Radiation exposure can be reduced by up to 90% less than traditional x-rays.
Through the use of a small intraoral video camera you will be able to see what the doctor is trying to explain; whether it be a fractured cusp or new decay surrounding an old filling. No more squinting to look at small x-rays. These pictures are shown on our large computer monitors.
