At Morris Family Dentistry, we offer many general dental services. General dental care can be used to treat tooth infections, impacted teeth, tongue and lip-tie, and more. Our general treatments will also 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. This will help prevent 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 know 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. Also, 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.

A frenectomy is an oral surgery that can remove a tongue-tie or lip-tie. The frenulum is a tissue fold in the mouth that can restrict speech and make it more difficult to eat. It is what causes tongue and lie tie in some patients. We can perform this surgery to free the tongue or lip to help patients.
Mercury Free Dental Fillings
Dental fillings in the past contain mercury, a neurotoxin that negatively affects the brain and organs of the body. Although these fillings contain small amounts of the substance, if too much of it builds up in the body, it can cause harm. It 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 remove old fillings that contain mercury.
