Dental care services provided at our Columbia, TN office include:
Dental Checkups and Cleanings: General preventive dentistry involves regular trips to see Dr. Goodman for dental checkups and professional oral hygiene visits. During these twice-yearly visits, we’ll look for signs of decay, check for gum disease, and examine your mouth for symptoms of oral cancer. We’ll also thoroughly remove plaque and tartar that you might miss during your daily oral hygiene routine to protect you from cavities and infection.
Custom Nightguards: Stress is very common these days, and more and more patients come to us suffering with nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. To protect your teeth and jaw, we can craft a custom nightguard that will shield your teeth from the pressure and prevent chipping, breaking, and loosening of the teeth.
Periodontal Therapy: Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, and we work hard to prevent this common infection of the gums. However, if you develop gum disease, we can provide non-surgical periodontal therapy to stop the infection from spreading and reduce inflammation. With timely intervention, Dr. Goodman and the team may be able to save your smile with gum disease treatment.
Tooth Repair and Replacement: Dental crowns can be crafted of strong, durable, and beautiful porcelain and used to cap teeth that have been weakened by decay, disease, injury, or root canal therapy. Crowns sometimes hold dental bridges in place, which are used to replace missing teeth.
Our tooth replacement options also include dentures and partials and dental implant restorations. Dental implants have greatly improved tooth replacement because they involve replacement tooth roots that are surgically implanted in the jaw bone. We’ll help you find an oral surgeon or periodontist to perform the surgical placement, at which point we’ll provide the implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture that best fits your tooth loss pattern.
Other restorative dental care services offered at our Columbia, TN office include root canal therapy and tooth extractions. With root canal therapy, we can often save teeth from extraction by addressing serious injury and inflammation of the pulp that runs through the teeth.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: Modern dental patients prefer metal-free dental care services whenever possible. Tooth-colored fillings have become the standard for treating cavities, replacing silver amalgam fillings as the most popular choice because not only are the more attractive, but they’re better for your teeth, too.
Cosmetic Dentistry: Cosmetic dentistry at our office includes teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Lumineers, and cosmetic dental bonding. Lumineers and porcelain veneers offer options for completely covering imperfections such as cracks, chips, gaps, and worn teeth. With in-office teeth whitening with Boost, we can brighten your smile several shades in just one hour, and we also provide take-home teeth whitening with personalized bleaching trays and strong professional-grade whitening gel.
