What general dentistry services do you offer?

At Cardinal Family Dentistry, we focus on preventive care and education to ensure that our patients have healthy mouths and strong teeth. We offer preventive services like sealants and periodontal care, and we also offer solutions like crowns and fillings for common dental issues.

How often should I visit the dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that you see a dentist for regular checkups every 6 months. During these appointments, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and checked for any dental issues, and this is the most important step in maintaining a healthy smile.

What can I expect during my routine appointments?

During your regular checkups, Dr. Barker will assess your dental health to make sure that you are free from dental issues such as cavities, periodontal disease, or damaged teeth. Dr. Barker will also thoroughly clean your teeth with professional grade tools to make sure that no plaque or tartar remain under your gums in order to avoid issues in the future.

What causes tooth decay?

Tooth decay, also known as a cavity, occurs when bacteria living in your mouth begins to eat away at your teeth. Untreated tooth decay can lead to an infection and extreme pain that can only be treated with a root canal or extraction.

How do I know if I need a root canal or extraction?

Signs that you have a decaying tooth are constant toothaches, extreme pain and tenderness to hot and cold temperatures. If your tooth is decaying or damaged, Dr. Barker will do everything she can to save the tooth, but if the damage is extensive, she may suggest an extraction. Extractions are a common procedure, and they are made virtually painless with a local anesthetic. Call us today if you have symptoms of a decaying tooth, and we will do our best to get you out of pain.

How much do root canals cost?

Root canals are a fairly common procedure, but the extent of dental work can vary from case to case. This means that the cost of a root canal is dependent on the specific treatment you need. At Cardinal Family Dentistry, we aim to help all of our patients keep the cost of treatment within your budget. Give us a call to speak with our friendly team and discuss our accepted insurances and our flexible financing options.
