Dentist Durham NC: Digital Dentistry at Southpoint

Here are several great reasons to choose Digital Dentistry at Southpoint as Your Dentist in Durham, NC.

No one enjoys getting their teeth worked on. You no doubt enjoy having good dental health. But actually receiving dental care often seems like a painful process in more ways than one. Not only do you have someone poking at your gums and pulling at your teeth with metal hooks, but it tends to cost quite a bit as well.

However, finding the right dental office can make all the difference in the world. Many people who were scared of making an appointment to get their teeth worked on find it much easier when their dental specialist really seems to understand their needs. It can take an incredibly empathetic professional to really understand a person, especially when they’re in pain or frightened.

Luckily, Digital Dentistry at Southpoint is there to meet all of your needs. We’re dedicated to the health of our patients, and we want to make absolutely certain you go home calm and satisfied. To that end, we offer a number of different services.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

When a crown breaks, that typically means it’s a dental emergency. Rarely is a broken crown something you can just deal with later. Either way, a good dental professional can install a new crown in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, this can take a few days due to scheduling, both for you and for the dental office.

But if a crown absolutely can not wait, whether due to a distinct possibility of further damage or a great deal of pain, a same day crown may be exactly what you need. We offer same-day crowns. We know how important it is to get rid of the pain as quickly as possible, so we don’t want to make you wait. If you feel it’s an emergency, then so do we.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Though less essential than a crown, many people have good reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry. This can sometimes be due to an issue that hinders breathing. Sometimes it’s because the way your teeth grew in makes it painful to chew. Sometimes it’s just because you want your teeth to look better. That’s as valid a reason as any, and you shouldn’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

While teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures, it’s not at all the only one. There are also procedures that adjust your teeth, remove teeth, and even reshape your jaw or parts of your mouth. There are a wide variety of procedures, but we ensure our dental experts can perform them all.

If you are just looking to get your teeth whitened, we can take care of you quite easily. It’s a simple, common procedure. This means it won’t take very long, it won’t be painful, and it can be done at a fairly inexpensive price. Give us a call and we can talk to you about your options.

Sedation Dentistry

It’s not a secret that dental procedures can be painful. This is particularly true of dental procedures intended to cut into the jaw or a tooth. Things like root canals are known to be painful, as is the removal of wisdom teeth.

Fortunately, many dental offices offer a certain level of sedation for their patients. Mostly this is a matter of numbing the mouth with specific drugs or even a purely local form of anesthetic. This is because a more complete anesthetizing would take far more preparation than most people can reasonably wait for.

Still, these drugs are fairly effective at making the pain go away enough to make the procedure something a person can endure. It is essential that one have a ride after these procedures as patients are typically not ready to drive themselves.

If the procedure you need is particularly long or involved, then we do offer other forms of sedation. It all depends on what you need and what can be covered by insurance. However, we do work with insurance as much as possible in order to ensure your costs are covered. We want our patients to feel safe, both from the pain of the procedure and the pain of the bill!

Dental Implant Restoration

When dental implants fall apart, you can’t afford to let the problem linger. Since these implants can be so essential, whether they’re replacement teeth, loose fillings or even something as potentially major as damaged braces, it becomes a good idea to get them restored as quickly as possible.

Our dental medicine office is more than ready to repair and restore any dental implants that may be damaged by daily use. We can also inspect your implants during your regular check up. We can see if there are any wear and tear that you need to watch out for, or if there’s a stress point that’s about to break. That way your implant can be repaired or replaced before it’s an emergency.

Emergency Care

And sometimes, dental care just plain can’t wait. Severe damage to the teeth or jaw can result in permanent damage if it doesn’t get dealt with immediately. Tooth decay that’s been left to linger could become abscessed, and an abscessed tooth can easily become a tooth that’s rotten from the inside out. These are all things that need to be dealt with immediately.

Our office has dental professionals on call to deal with nearly any emergency one could have regarding their teeth. Whether it’s a damaged implant or a simple slipping out of an already loose tooth, our dental experts can mend the damage quickly and efficiently with minimal hassle at nearly any hour.

As you can no doubt tell by now, we’re here for our patients. We work tirelessly to ensure that you’re taken care of, both emotionally and physically. Whether you need to be fit for dentures or braces, whether your problem is an emergency or something that can be easily scheduled in the future, we’re there for you.

So if you’re in need of dental work, whether it’s just a cleaning or something more serious, give us a call. We’re ready and waiting to help.
