Our General Dentistry Services Include

  • The American Dental Association recommends that patients receive routine dental cleanings at least every six months.
  • X-Rays are safe and effective ways to aid the dentist in the diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions like tooth decay, periodontal disease, and structural issues of the jaw.
  • Routine exams by the dentist provides the most effective means of preventing decay and gum disease caused by infection.
  • Left untreated, dental cavities can lead to ever worsening conditions. Today's composites are natural looking, strong, and help preserve the integrity of the tooth.
  • When a crown is required to restore a tooth to its natural state, the materials and technique used can make the restored tooth virtually indistinguishable from a naturally healthy one.
  • Working together with a specialist, Cedar Bluff Dental Center uses the highest grade titanium implant materials along with the highest quality crowns to restore lost teeth.
  • Replacing a missing tooth or teeth by "bridging" the gap between existing teeth is one way of restoring the mouth and can help keep further problems of wear and alignment from occurring.
  • Missing teeth can lead to serious issues for those teeth that remain, especially adjacent and opposing teeth. Dentures (partial and complete) not only restore a person's smile, but they also prevent further problems with wear and alignment from occurring.
  • Dr. Nations is specially trained to examine and diagnose existing conditions including oral cancer, periodontal disease, abscesses, TMJ, bruxism, and impacted wisdom teeth.
  • When tooth decay advances into the root of a tooth where the nerves are situated, root canal therapy removes the infected nerves and the infection all the way to the end or apex of the tooth.
