The Importance of Patient Education
At Morris Family Dentistry, we want our patients to be aware of their oral health and contributing risk factors to dental problems. Our office emphasizes the benefits of good nutrition and good oral habits. Oral health is systematically tied to physical health. For example, patients with medical problems including heart problems and diabetes may be prone to developing gum disease. We want patients to keep this link in mind when caring for their oral health.
In addition, we help parents of younger patients establish an oral hygiene routine. Establishing this routine at an early age helps prevent future oral health problems. Children are the most prone to developing cavities, which are small holes in the tooth enamel. Proper oral hygiene paired with routine dental visits can stop the development of a variety of oral health issues.
Family-Specific Dental Services
Our services benefit patients regardless of age:
- Dental Exams and Cleanings: At biannual dental appointments, our dental hygienists thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. We may also take dental x-rays to keep track of our patient’s oral health. Dr. Morris may also consult with patients if we find signs of a developing problem or if they have pressing dental concerns.
- Dental Fillings: Dr. Morris is trained in removing old metal fillings that contain mercury, a harmful substance that poisons the body. He uses the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) to remove all traces of mercury from the mouth. Dr. Morris can also provide patients with tooth-colored fillings as a safe replacement that blends in with the smile.
- Tooth Extractions: Dental extractions are needed when patients have overcrowded, infected, or impacted teeth. These problem teeth can cause pain and spread infection. After extracting a diseased tooth, we can also provide a replacement through dental implants or implant-secured restorations.
- Full and Partial Dentures: Patients who have full rows or arches of missing teeth benefit from dentures. Dr. Morris offers implant-supported dentures to provide long-lasting stability. He carefully plans the placement of dental implants to comfortably support a partial or full denture.
