Family Dentist in Covington, GA - Newton Drive Family DentistryDental Crowns: Crowns are some of the most common dental restorations. When you have a tooth that is cracked, decayed, or otherwise compromised, a crown can often provide stability and reinforcement. In other words, a crown may be able to strengthen your tooth and prevent the need for extraction.

Dentures: Whether you wear full or partial dentures, we can help get you squared away at Newton Drive Family Dentistry. Our team has vast experience with dentures, and we will make sure to get you a set made of high-quality materials with a comfortable fit. Dentures that fit correctly do not slip out of position or rub your mouth painfully.

Tooth Extractions: A tooth that is broken or infected may need to be removed to protect your other teeth and oral health. If this occurs, you can rest assured that our team will extract your tooth with skill and care. We make certain to keep you comfortable throughout the process. In fact, many patients report that the removal of a painful tooth relieves their discomfort. Of course, we will always provide you with advice and aftercare instructions.

Dental Implants: A dental implant is a titanium anchor that is surgically placed in your jaw. The implant will integrate into your bone over time. Once this occurs, your Covington, GA dentist can add a restoration to the implant for beauty and function. In the case of a single missing tooth, the restoration will likely be a crown. However, implants can also be used to secure dentures or partial dentures for patients with multiple missing teeth.

Periodontal Care: It is all too easy to neglect your gums, but they are just as important as your teeth. Quality periodontal care is important for not only your oral health but also your overall health. Gum inflammation and infection can lead to systemic health problems if left unchecked.

Same-Day Emergency Treatment: You have plenty of responsibilities, so we respect your time by providing same-day care whenever possible. This includes emergencies. Call us right away when you have a dental emergency so that we can provide prompt care, relieve your pain, and preserve your health.

TMJ/TMD: Some of the strongest muscles in your body are located in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), better known as your jaw. Unfortunately, with all the chewing and speaking we do, the TMJ is prone to problems. Misalignment, uneven teeth, and other issues can all lead to TMJ disorders (TMD).

TMJ disorders are usually characterized by pain, stiffness, clicking in the jaw, or even locking. TMD is often progressive, so it makes sense to see your dentist at the first sign of trouble. Our dentists are trained and experienced in treating TMD using minimally invasive methods, without the need for surgery.
