We believe that preventive care is the most important aspect of comprehensive dentistry. Comprehensive dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, the treatment, and the prevention of conditions that affect your teeth, gums, and jaw.
We believe that everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile. We know that if you feel good about your smile, you’ll feel good about yourself. We provide the following cosmetic dental services to help enhance your smile and change your life.
If your gums feel tender, look red or swollen, or bleed, you could be at risk for gum disease. It is important to keep up with your biannual dental checkups and cleanings to ensure that your gums are healthy. At Mission Bend Family Dentistry, we can diagnose gum disease, scale and root plane (deep clean), and provide long-term maintenance plans.
Arestin® is an antibiotic powder that stops gum infections right where they start. After Dr. Puckett completes your deep cleaning, he will apply Arestin to the small space between your tooth and gum tissue. The antibiotic will clear up a gum infection to a level that can be managed with routine dental cleanings.
