Experienced Dentists Serving Heber-Overgaard Residents

Incorporating the latest dental technologies with exceptional patient care, Anderson Dental Group provides Payson area residents with dentists skilled in preventative, cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry services.

Stop Tooth Decay with Preventative Services

Tooth decay occurs when harmful oral bacteria accumulate and harden on dental enamel. If a bacterial film called plaque is allowed to form, your tooth enamel begins demineralizing, becoming soft and susceptible to decay. Unless remineralization of tooth enamel occurs, tooth decay may cause extensive tooth loss and a serious oral disease called periodontal disease.

Remineralizing your teeth means treating damaged enamel with nutrients necessary for keeping enamel strong enough to stop decay. Our dentists promote remineralization of your dental enamel with fluoride treatments and education regarding oral hygiene and dietary choices.

Adults should receive a fluoride treatment once a year to prevent bacteria from dissolving dental enamel. People with diabetes, dry mouth syndrome (xerostomia), a previous diagnosis of periodontitis or several dental restorations should receive two fluoride treatments a year since they are more prone to tooth decay.

Dental Crowns

In addition to repairing crooked, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth, dental crown procedures performed by our dentists strengthen teeth that have been weakened by external or internal damage. Dental crowns are strong and durable. They provide restorative benefits to fractured teeth as well as replace fillings when there is an insufficient amount of tooth remaining to implement a traditional filling.

Benefits of Digital X-Rays

While good oral hygiene practices can reduce the risk of cavities destroying teeth, cavities may emerge on even the healthiest of teeth due to the rapid growth of oral bacteria.

Our dentists use digital X-rays to detect cavities in their earliest stages, stop the spread of bacterial biofilm to other teeth with appropriate treatments and dramatically reduce the amount of radiation to which patients are exposed.
