General Dentistry

We’ve seen so many remarkable advances in dentistry recently, and things are changing every day. So, it’s possible that sometime in the future we may be able to provide dentistry that would withstand a lifetime of use.

Since that day hasn’t arrived yet, at Briarwood Dental, we use only the highest quality premium dental materials that are strong and durable. Dr. Kevin Clemmons is an experienced dentistsin Bowling Green who takes pride in his work so he can deliver results that look beautiful and stand up to routine wear and tear.

One way you can extend the lifespan of your dental work is to be diligent about taking care of your teeth. Healthy habits like brushing twice a day, flossing once, and avoiding sugary foods go a long way toward keeping your teeth healthy and your dental work intact.

Visiting our Bowling Green, KY dental office every six months for dental exams and teeth cleanings is another way to protect your dental work. During these visits, our dentists will also check the condition of all your crowns, bridges, and fillings to make sure they’re in good shape.

Dr. Clemmons will look for signs of teeth grinding or bruxism, a habit that places excess stress on fillings, crowns, and bridges which can cause them to fail. In this case, we’ll customize a night guard for you to wear to protect your teeth from grinding and clenching while you sleep.

If you would like to talk to us about helping your dental work last, please call our Bowling Green, KY dental office to arrange an appointment.
