Excellent oral health should be a priority for everyone. We’re learning more every day about the connection between poor oral health and systemic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, and many others.
At Briarwood Dental, we make it as convenient as possible by offering all the dental services your family needs under one roof. Dr. Kevin Clemmons, Dr. Derek Hayes, and Dr. Sasha Hayes and our entire dental team are committed to providing you with the highest quality care in a warm and welcoming environment.
The Role Your General Dentist Plays
When you have a medical need, you turn to your primary care physician. And when you need dental care, you turn to your general dentist. Just like your primary doctor, Briarwood Dental oversees anything and everything that has to do with your oral health.
What General Dentistry Includes
At Briarwood Dental, we have the solution you need:
- Dental exams and teeth cleanings
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Crowns and bridges
- Root canals
- Tooth extractions
- Emergency dentistry
Because of our staffs many years of training and experience, we can offer advanced treatments like dental implant placement and restoration and sedation dentistry, including nitrous oxide and IV sedation. If you have a dental emergency, call us right away and we'll arrange to see you as soon as possible, usually on the same day.
We also offer the cosmetic dental services you need to improve your appearance including dental veneers, cosmetic bonding, Invisalign clear braces, and teeth whitening.
Prevention Comes First
Do you make it a point to keep current with your six-month dental exams and cleanings? If not, you’re missing an opportunity to prevent oral health problems from occurring, which can save you money and toothaches in the long term.
Comprehensive dental exams allow our dentists to look for areas of concern that need our attention. Routine teeth cleanings with one of our skilled hygienists remove cavity-causing plaque and bacteria and leave you with a clean, fresh smile. During these appointments, your hygienist will also check for signs of gum disease so we can take prompt action to eliminate it and protect your oral health.
Can Silver Diamine Fluoride Help Your Child?
Silver diamine fluoride or SDF is a treatment that we use for children who have cavities. SDF controls cavities and prevents decay from spreading further. The silver component kills bacteria and prevents new bacteria from forming; fluoride strengthens teeth and helps prevent the breakdown of tooth structure.
After the first treatment, we’ll schedule a follow-up visit with your child so we can fill the cavity, usually without numbing the tooth first. SDF is perfect for children who have extensive cavities or are very apprehensive about their dental treatments.
