The best way to care for your mouth is to have a consistent routine. If you follow the American Dental Association’s advice, then you are already brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing every day. You also are making time to regularly visit a general dentist like Dr. Farrell.Dr. Jerry Farrell on his practice philosophy
By scheduling regular dental cleanings and exams, you get some important benefits. First, we remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. That alone makes you less likely to develop cavities or infected gums. Second, we’ll polish your teeth so your smile can look its best. Third, we carefully examine your mouth for any potential problems. We want to catch periodontal disease and cavities early when treatment is easier and more effective.
Should you get a cavity (like more than 90 percent of people will), we can fix it with composite tooth filling that blends in with your smile. Unlike metal fillings, the resin used for this treatment can be shaded to match the color of your teeth. Should you develop a gum infection, scaling and root planing is a non-surgical way to get your gums healthy again.
You also can get restorative dentistry at our office. Repair a broken tooth with a dental crown made at our in-house porcelain lab. Replace missing teeth with a dental bridge. You can even restore your bite with implant-supported dentures.
If you want to improve your smile, ask about our many cosmetic services. Get rid of stains with professional teeth whitening. Straighten your smile with orthodontics, including Invisalign aligners, and conceal a variety of problems with dental veneers.
You can have a beautiful, healthy smile for decades. Dr. Farrell and the rest of our dental professionals can help. Keep your beautiful smile for years to come. Call 607-304-3993 to make your next appointment with our dentist in Endicott.
