At Morris Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of general dental services. General dental care can be used to treat tooth infections, impacted teeth, tongue and lip-tie, and more. Our general treatments may also be used to prevent future oral health problems. For example, our custom sports mouthguards cover and protect teeth and gums to prevent dental injuries and tooth loss. We also see patients with dental emergencies. Immediate emergency dental services may eliminate the need for restorative or cosmetic care.
Complete and Holistic Dental Care
Dr. Chad Morris provides a holistic, complete approach to dentistry. He wants his patients to understand how their oral health impacts their overall health. His dental office is a space where patients can become educated about what they can do to improve their dental and physical health. Dr. Morris does not use fluoride in his treatments, as an excess of fluoride is toxic to patients. Additionally, Dr. Morris provides metal and mercury-free dental fillings. He follows a systemic, “do no harm” approach to ensure that his patients are in good oral and overall health. General dental care is a part of this approach.
General Dental Services in Zachary, LA
Our general dental solutions help keep common dental problems at bay:
If you or your child plays contact sports like hockey, lacrosse, football, soccer, or basketball, schedule an appointment for a custom sports mouthguard. Our dental office takes dental impressions for custom, properly fitting mouthguards. Store-bought mouthguards can fall out during a game. Custom-made mouthguards are meant to fully cover and protect the teeth and gums.
Contact Morris Family Dentistry in the event of a dental emergency. We will ensure that you receive prompt, high-quality care. Dental emergencies are often sudden and abnormal dental problems. Some examples of dental emergencies include broken dental restorations, knocked-out permanent teeth, and tooth pain.
With a family dentist, each member of your household can receive the specific dental care that they need. Dr. Morris ensures that patients of all ages are educated about their oral health as well as the services that he can provide them. Patient education and health are at the forefront at Morris Family Dentistry.
A frenectomy is an oral surgery that can remove a tongue-tie or lip-tie. Tongue and lip-tie are caused by a frenulum, a tissue fold in the mouth that can restrict speech and make it more difficult to eat. Performing a frenectomy frees the tongue or lips and helps patients live comfortably.
Mercury-Free Dental Fillings
Dental fillings have traditionally contained mercury, a neurotoxin that negatively affects the brain and organs of the body. Although these fillings contain small amounts of the substance, an accumulation of mercury can weaken the muscles, damage the kidneys, and affect mental function. Because of this, Morris Family Dentistry provides mercury-free dental fillings. Dr. Morris can also carefully remove old amalgam fillings that contain mercury.
Is a dental infection affecting the health of your teeth? Are your wisdom teeth impacted? Schedule a tooth extraction at Morris Family Dentistry. Dr. Morris can keep track of incoming wisdom teeth at routine appointments, as well as fight dental infections with regular cleanings. However, for patients who already have severe cases of tooth decay or impacted wisdom teeth, a dental extraction procedure is needed.
