Comprehensive General Dentistry
Some dental offices have limited capabilities offering only the barest of basic services. At Daniels Parkway Dental, we offer general dentistry services in a variety of areas. This approach to dentistry works for the benefit of the patient. Patients get to develop an on-going relationship with Dr. Bryant, Dr. Shelly and staff members as everyone get to know one another. Most people prefer to have one primary physician because their staff members learns your medical history and what your preferences are for treatment. It is the same with your dental professional. When you have one dentist with whom you develop a relationship your care is going to be better because that dentist comes to know the uniqueness of your particular case.

Most people think having clean teeth and good oral hygiene is a nice thing to do. Smooth clean teeth feel good and fresh breath is always a plus. The truth is, oral health is one of the keystones to overall physical health. The mouth is the first step in the body’s digestive system. Oral problems can lead to other health issues. For that reason, regular dental exams and cleanings as part of your general dental care are paramount to your overall health. The dental team at Daniels Parkway Dental will teach you everything you need to know about keeping your teeth and the soft tissues in good shape. We will answer any questions you may have about achieving and maintaining optimum oral health.
Chipped or broken teeth can easily be repaired in a number of ways. Sometimes the broken part of the enamel is reattached to the tooth. Other repairs include using a tooth colored filling material or sometimes crowning the tooth for protection. It is important to get your chipped or broken tooth repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent more serious damage from occurring. We will restore your damaged tooth and keep your smile bright and healthy.
Certain types of damage or injury to a tooth require that it be protected. Large fillings, root canal therapy, a broken or cracked tooth are instances when a crown may be used for protection. A dental crown may also be used to protect a weak tooth or one which is badly discolored or misshapen. With our general dentistry treatments, crowns can be made from various materials such as stainless steel, gold alloy, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin or ceramic.
When it has been determined that a crown is needed, the tooth in question will be prepared. Preparation of the tooth is determined by the damage that the tooth has incurred. Once the tooth has been prepared and the crown has been created, it will be permanently attached to the remaining part of the tooth.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is especially true when it comes to periodontal disease. At Daniels Parkway Dental Care our deep cleaning of your teeth can eliminate the threat of periodontal disease. We remove the plaque and tartar build up before it has the opportunity to spread and impact your health. Scaling and root planing remove all the tartar and smooth the surfaces so that your gums have a chance for healthy recovery from gingivitis. We also teach you how to properly care for your teeth. Your investment in your smile and oral health is one in which the returns will last a life time.
The discomfort from an infected tooth can be unbearable. Often patients will ask for the doctor to pull the tooth just to be rid of the pain. However, extraction is not necessarily the best option. It is always advisable to keep your natural teeth if at all possible. Dr. King will assess the situation to determine if root canal is a viable option. If it is, he will walk you through all the steps so that you will know what to expect.
Even though the preference is to save the natural tooth whenever possible, there are those times that extraction is the only sensible option. When a tooth is so badly decayed that it cannot be saved it must be pulled. Sometimes, extractions are advised for orthodontic work where crowding of teeth or multiple sets of teeth are causing problems. If a tooth is cracked and the fissure extends below the gum line, the likelihood of losing the tooth is high. Whatever the circumstances are, Dr. King will make an assessment after examining the tooth and explain the findings to you.
