What we do
Dental Practitioner – American Fork
Dentist – Comprehensive Dental Care at Affordable Prices
At Elite Dental, our experienced and knowledgeable staff is here for your dental needs as well as your family’s. Our office is designed for your convenience and comfort. We make dental check-ups and cleanings simple and quick, so you can get back to your busy life knowing your teeth and gums are healthy. Using our dental services is the best way to treat and prevent gum disease, oral cancer, plaque, tartar and cavities. As dental specialists, we not only clean your teeth, we look after your overall oral health. It is our job to prevent infections that can lead to expensive oral surgeries. When you visit us every six months, and take care of your teeth at home, these invasive procedures are all avoidable. If you are at a point where you need a procedure because you have not been to the dentist for some time, we urge you to call us. Our services treat every kind of issue you may be facing with your teeth, gums and jaw. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can help.
When you visit our dental office, we will check and clean your teeth. This is a short process that will take an hour at most of your time. The more you take care of your teeth and come in for your scheduled cleanings, the less time these cleanings will take. Once your teeth are cleaned and polished, our dentist will come in to check for any cavities or abnormalities. The dentist will also review any x-rays if they are taken during the visit. It is important to discuss any concerns you may have so the dentist can advise you on what you should do or if any further examination needs to be done.
If you are in need of further dental work, we have specialists to perform any procedures you may need. Our endodontists specialize in tooth disease, tooth infection, and tooth pain. They have knowledge and training that goes beyond dentistry, allowing them to diagnose and treat tooth pain. They are trained to perform root canals and other special procedures related to tooth decay. The most common reason our patients come in to see our endodontist is to have a root canal procedure. During a root canal, a tooth’s nerve and pulp is removed to prevent further damage and infection. This area is then filled for protection. A root canal can prevent complete tooth loss. If you have experienced tooth pain, inflammation, or tooth trauma, our endodontist is qualified to help.
Our Periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. They can also perform dental implants if necessary. With extensive training and experience, our periodontists are the most qualified to treat oral inflammation and gum disease. They use the latest techniques and treatments available to make your experience as comfortable and fast as possible. You can also inquire about our cosmetic periodontal procedures. Some of the procedures offered by our periodontist include roof surface debridement, implants, and implant repair. The main goal for the periodontist is to prevent and treat periodontal disease. This occurs when bacteria settles in your gums and then spreads rapidly, creating a bacteria infection. The best way to prevent this disease is to come in for regular cleanings. When caught early, periodontal disease is very treatable.
If you suffer from missing or loose teeth, implants are the superior solution. Even one missing tooth can affect the health of the surrounding teeth, gums, and jaw bone. The condition of your teeth and overall smile has a huge impact on your appearance and self-esteem. Dental implants will not only fix your oral health, they will alter your facial appearance for the better. We only use the highest quality implants. We also take the time to teach you how to care for them, preserving your smile and health for a lifetime. Each of our clients have unique needs when it comes to dental implants. We need to examine your teeth in order to determine the best type of implant for you. Our implant options include: Subperiosteal Implants, Endosteal Implants, All-on-4 Dental Implants, Implant-Overdentures, and Implant-Supported-Bridges. If you have several teeth missing, we may also have a CT scan done. Once a final decision has been made, your implant date will be scheduled according to the procedure chosen. If you are missing teeth and would like to know your options, contact us today.
We also offer pediatric dentistry, which means our office is the best place to get dental treatment for your entire family. We know how important first impressions are when it comes to your child visiting the dentist for the first time. We help them develop healthy oral routines at an early age, so they can continue to have a beautiful smile and be less likely to have to go through dental procedures in the future. Our child-focused dental care provides an experience for your child that will allow them to look forward to their next visit and get them interested in taking care of their teeth between visits.
Our pediatric dentist has specialized training to cater to your child and make them feel calm. We make it our goal to create a safe and fun environment. We also take the time to give your child or teen the knowledge they need to take care of their teeth. Creating this experience means your child will look forward to coming back and having their teeth cleaned on a regular basis. You may wonder why a pediatric dentist is different from a regular dentist. Part of the training of a pediatric dentist includes education in how to take care of young patients with smaller jaw sizes. They also know how to handle and treat issues like thumb sucking and offer creative solutions to help your child kick poor habits early. Teenagers may have poor habits as well, like teeth grinding.. We provide solutions for them too, including affordable mouth guards to protect their permanent teeth. Unless an issue presents itself early, your child should have their first dental appointment around 2 years old. Although this may seem very early, it is important to know that cavities and gum issues can happen with your child’s baby teeth. Once they have reached 18 years of age, they will then be able to see the regular dentist for cleanings. If you have been putting off bringing your child into a pediatric dentist because you are worried about how they will behave, we want you to know that we know how to handle any situation. We are always patient and know that this will pay off and your child will be more comfortable each time they come in.
