Friendly Dentists Serving Residents of Pine, AZ

Optimizing your oral health with preventive dental services provided by Anderson Dental Group significantly reduces your risk for cavities, gum disease, tooth loss and periodontitis. Types of preventative care services offered by our dentists include cleanings and fluoride, cosmetic and restorative procedures.

Dental Implants

If you live in Pine or other areas surrounding Payson, AZ, Anderson Dental Group offers dental implant services for replacing missing teeth. Dental implant surgery involves the insertion of a titanium screw into the jawbone that serves as a foundation for an abutment and new crown. When fusion of the bone with the screw is completed, your dentist will attach a natural-looking crown and abutment to permanently establish the implant. Dental implants feel and function just like real teeth and can last 20 or 30 years with proper care.

Preventing Gingivitis and Periodontitis

Gingivitis and periodontitis are oral diseases caused by hardened layers of plaque adhering to your teeth and gums. Poor oral hygiene is generally why gums suffer the swelling, bleeding and deep redness of gingivitis. Certain factors may also promote gingivitis even when good oral hygiene practices are followed, such as smoking, systemic diseases, pregnancy and diabetes.

Unless gingivitis is reversed, a more serious condition called periodontitis may develop, which erodes dental enamel and gums. It can also reach into the jawbone and compromise bone density. To stop gingivitis and periodontitis from compromising their patients' oral health, our dentists urge everyone to have a cleaning, fluoridation and examination performed every six months.

Cosmetic Dentistry — Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin layers of an enamel-like material that your dentist bonds to your natural teeth to give a less-than-perfect smile the ultimate makeover. Resin compound or porcelain veneers are also used to eliminate small gaps between teeth by altering the size of the teeth and filling in the gap with veneers that are larger than the teeth.

A popular alternative to bonding, Invisalign or dental crowns, porcelain veneers can conceal stains, chips and fractures, widen teeth to narrow unattractive gaps between teeth and provide symmetry for teeth that are differently shaped or sized.

You only have one set of teeth. Take excellent care of them by brushing, flossing and calling the Anderson Dental Group today at (928) 474-4581. to schedule a complete examination.
