General Dentistry in Jacksonville, TX
Your Jacksonville, TX dentist and dental hygienists provide general dentistry for the whole family. Whether it’s an aching tooth or several missing teeth, All Smiles has the skills and equipment to restore your mouth to optimal health.
Exams are crucial to dentistry. They detect problems that may be invisible to the naked eye. They also help your dentist make an accurate diagnosis and create the best treatment plan for your condition. At All Smiles, Dr. Folden and Dr. Westbrook use advanced, low-radiation digital X-rays to take detailed images of your mouth and jaw. We also perform oral cancer screening and gum, bite and TMJ analysis.
Professional teeth cleaning is part of a routine appointment. Our dental hygienist will use special instruments to scrape away plaque and tartar and remove bacteria above and below the gum line. Your teeth are then polished to prevent bacteria from sticking to the surfaces.
If you have an increased risk of cavities and gum disease, your dentist in Jacksonville may recommend additional protection in the form of fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride strengthens the enamel and rebuilds areas eroded by plaque acids. Sealant or resin is painted on the biting surfaces of the back teeth to prevent bacteria from entering the pits and grooves.
We offer tooth-colored fillings and one-visit restorations to bring back your teeth’s function and beauty. You don’t have to wear temporaries or make a return trip to the clinic because the crown, filling or veneer is placed on the same day as it is designed.
Endodontics (Root Canal)
A root canal is sometimes necessary because bacteria have infected the dental pulp in the center of the tooth. To end pain and prevent the spread of infection, your dentist will remove the pulp and decayed areas, clean and seal off the space, and restore the tooth with a dental crown.
