Our General Dentistry Services
At Chrisman & Wyse, we offer a comprehensive range of general dentistry to ensure your smile stays strong and healthy.
Every few months, oral bacteria begin to repopulate. That is why routine dental cleanings are necessary to remove plaque and tartar and keep microbe levels at bay. Most patients have their teeth cleaned approximately every six months. However, individuals who are predisposed to oral health problems, such as decay or gum disease, will require more frequent visits.
During your routine dental visits, your doctor will also perform a full evaluation to check for issues such as decay, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse will also assess any existing restorations to make sure they are still functioning properly. If any problems are detected, your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you in detail.
Oral Cancer Screenings
When it comes to most dental issues, prevention is key. That is why an oral cancer screening will also be performed during every routine visit. This simple assessment can help your doctor detect any suspicious abnormalities of the oral soft tissues and protect your health.
Periodontal disease is a serious condition which can affect not only your oral health, but your whole body. Drs. Chrisman and Wyse offer a range of treatments for gum disease, including scaling and root planing, or deep cleanings, for moderate gingivitis.
While we will do everything in our power to save your natural teeth, there are some cases where a tooth extraction is necessary. We perform safe, gentle, and effective extractions and can coordinate replacing your tooth with a bridge or implant-supported crown.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Drs. Chrisman and Wyse offer oral appliance therapy for patients struggling with obstructive sleep apnea. This minimally invasive treatment option can prevent the dangerous side effects of living with sleep apnea.
Advanced Dental Technology
In addition to cleanings and examinations, x-rays and scans will be necessary to assess your oral health, as well. At Chrisman & Wyse, our doctors utilize the latest innovations and technologies, including digital radiographs and intraoral cameras. These advanced tools help your doctor detect and diagnose any outstanding oral health issues.
