What Does Family Dentistry at our East Greenbush office Involve?

Some of the most common services, treatments and procedures performed at Dr. Alexander office include:

Oral Health Examination
A visual exam conducted by the experienced eye of a professional will spot signs of tooth & gum disease, misalignment, decay and a range of other abnormalities. J. Craig Alexander also offers TMJ, oral cancer screening and X-Ray for a complete diagnosis.

Prophylactic Cleaning
A thorough tooth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup reduces the chance of major gum disease and tooth decay problems. Conducted by a professional, a cleaning should be regularly undertaken every 6 months as an ideal form of preventative treatment.

Gum Disease Intervention
In the moderate and earliest stages of gingivitis and periodontists, an appointment with a talented family dental service can help to fight off the tartar and protect the gums. Also offering root planning, a procedure that smooths the tooth roots in an effort to prevent increased bacteria and buildup.

Fluoride Treatment & Dental Sealant
Designed to fight tooth decay in children and adults alike, fluoride is applied topically to the teeth during an examination. Also, sealant is brushed into chewing surfaces on the molars, where the tiny cracks and dips in the enamel cannot be cleaned by a toothbrush. Sealant lasts a very long time and can prove to be invaluable as a preventative dental health procedure.

Root Canals
A root canal is designed to stem spreading bacterial infection and remedy infected tooth pulp. Tooth pulp infections are painful, and the only way to fight them is through a root canal or pulpotomy that removes the infected pulp and restores the tooth with a crown or filling.
