Checkups and cleanings
The best path to a healthy smile is a great home routine and regular dental cleanings and checkups twice per year. At 1st Family Dental of Elgin, we welcome new patients that may be looking for a new dentist or just need a dental cleaning and exam. Even if you haven’t had a regular dental cleaning in a few years, the best time to get started building a consistent dental health routine is with a cleaning, exam, and x-rays.
If you are a new patient, check the website or call our office to ask about special offers and discounts that may be available on checkups and cleanings for first-time visitors.
When you need a have a tooth pulled, whether it’s due to an accident, infection, or other reason, you can expect the “extraction” to typically be a quick and pain free procedure.
When most people think of extractions, wisdom teeth are the first thing that come to mind. Depending on the position of your wisdom teeth, a wisdom tooth extraction can be a quick procedure or require a more in-depth process. We perform many wisdom tooth extractions in-office.
Gum disease treatment
Gum disease is a common dental disease that affects nearly half of all adults in the United States. Whether it’s gingivitis or periodontitis, gum disease should be taken very seriously. If left untreated gum disease can lead to other issues, including heart disease and serious infections.
The good news is that gum disease is highly treatable and 1st Family Dental of Elgin offers a wide range of treatments to address it, including deep dental cleanings, prescription mouth washes, and other medications.
The best way to avoid tooth extractions and gum disease is with a great home dental routine and visiting your dentist every six months.
