General Family Dentistry
Serving patients of all age groups, our practice is proud to provide comprehensive oral healthcare to patients in Corinth and the surrounding communities. We provide a family-like atmosphere that welcomes adults and children alike. Our dentist and our team utilize the latest techniques and technology to help prevent oral disease and treat any problems that may arise. From preventive treatments to dental restorations, Dr. Eric Smith and our staff offer a number of services to help our patients enjoy vibrant oral health.
Preventing oral healthcare problems before they arise saves our patients time, money, and most of all, their wellbeing. Cleanings and checkups at all ages are important for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
Gentle professional cleanings remove substances such as tartar that patients simply cannot remove with flossing and brushing alone. Like cleanings, checkups are an integral component of preventive dentistry. Patients should schedule checkups on annual basis so that our team can detect and treat any potential problems as soon as possible.
In addition to cleanings and checkups, we offer preventive services such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants. These treatments help strengthen teeth and prevent caries. Fluoride treatments are a common method for strengthening the protective coating around teeth, tooth enamel, as a means to prevent cavities. Sealants offer additional protection by utilizing a thin, tooth-colored coating that is resistant to cavity-causing bacteria.
Since injuries and cavities are incredibly common, patients often require a restoration or two in their lifetimes. Restorations allow patients to retain their biological teeth by preserving the existing tooth structure and repairing a tooth to its proper shape after it has been affected by decay or breakage.
Common restorations include fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. Fillings stop the spread of tooth decay in small areas of a tooth. To help our patients enjoy a natural looking appearance, our team places tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin.
To repair more extensive damage to a tooth, an only, inlay, or crown may be necessary. Inlays fit in between the cusps of teeth while onlays may fit over a cusp and down the side of a tooth. Dental crowns fit over an entire tooth and restore severely damaged or broken teeth to their rightful size and shape.
