Preventive Care

Preventive Care: Checkups

The most cost-effective dentistry is preventive care. Regular checkups and cleanings will keep your smile looking its best and help you live a healthy, happy life. Catching dental problems while they are small and easy to fix can save you literally thousands of dollars in healthcare costs. Preventive measures are usually pain free and will have you leaving the office with the confidence of a beautiful smile and a better awareness of the daily care your teeth require.

Regular dental visits twice a year are the best way to maintain your teeth and gums, but they should also be a part of everyone’s overall health.

Periodontal Care

The buildup of hard and soft plaques on teeth is the most common cause of dental problems. Most of us know that poor oral hygiene can cause decay, but many adults and sometimes adolescents experience diseases of the gums and bone that support the teeth. Periodontal disease—often called gum disease—is almost always without symptoms until it has become so serious that many teeth will be lost as a result. The only treatment for periodontal disease is prevention, and new evidence suggests that this disease is likely a manifestation of a more serious, and even life threatening, systemic disease. Proper brushing and flossing and regular checkups and cleanings are the best ways to prevent periodontal disease. Keep your mouth as healthy as possible with regular checkups and care from Rocky Mountain Dental Care.

Extractions

Wisdom teeth removal: Whether your wisdom teeth are just coming in or you have an existing one that is giving you trouble, we can help. At Rocky Mountain Dental, we will explain your options so that you can decide what is best for you and your teeth.

Dental Replacement

Bridges: Bridges are a good way to replace a few teeth. They use an artificial tooth that is held in place by two crowns on either side of it, hence the name “bridge.” These are seamless and blend in right alongside your natural teeth, returning your smile to its natural glow.

Dentures: From a partial denture that snaps into place to a full set, Rocky Mountain Dental Care can create quality dentures to fit your needs. However, we stress that dentures aren’t for everyone, and our dedicated staff insists on making sure you know the pros and cons of dentures and their alternatives before you make this decision.

Implant referrals: Implants are becoming a more and more common option for replacing missing or severely damaged teeth. Let our team at Rocky Mountain Dental will help you pick out one of the best implant specialists in Fort Collins.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Teeth whitening: Forget dingy yellow teeth and expensive procedures with teeth whitening services from Rocky Mountain Dental Care. Our process is simple, easy to use, and will leave you with a whiter smile. We use a hydrogen peroxide gel that removes stains and brings out your smile’s true brilliance.

Veneers: Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain which are bonded to the front of your teeth. This process can be the best choice for improving the appearance of front teeth as they are commonly used to mask discoloration, to brighten teeth and to improve your smile.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns: Crowns are made out of high quality porcelain and gold alloy and encapsulate the top of a problem tooth and protect it from further deterioration. These are commonly used for weak, cracked, or chipped teeth.

Bridges: Bridges are a good way to replace a few teeth. They use an artificial tooth that is held in place by two crowns on either side of it, hence the name “bridge”. These are seamless and blend in right alongside your natural teeth, returning your smile to its natural glow.

Restorative Treatments

Fillings: Fillings are one of the most commonly talked about procedures in the dental world and are often used for filling cavities and fixing other issues. With today’s advancements in dentistry, both traditional amalgam (metal) fillings and newer composite (white) fillings are safe and effective.
