At Pineview Dental we believe people stick to a good oral hygiene routine when they are well informed about the oral health issues they should be concerned with and are comfortable with their dentist. Dr. Fogel and the team offer both these things.
We’re here to answer any questions you might have as part of our unique and collaborative approach to dentistry.
If you’re ready to stop dreading your next dental appointment and start loving your smile, come in for a check up! We are now accepting patients in Columbia, MD for dental checkups, routine cleanings and all your general dentistry needs.
Our general dentistry services in Columbia, MD include:
Dental cleaning is a key step in keeping the oral cavity in proper health, spotting cavities and other tooth decay and preventing the progression of gum disease.
Tartar and plaque can build up along the gum line, and regular brushing and flossing alone aren’t enough to prevent this. A regular cleaning can prevent damaging plaque buildup.
A thorough cleaning twice annually will help you maintain fresh breath, strong teeth and a healthier looking smile.
By the time you can feel the pain caused by a cavity, it has already reached the innermost layer of the tooth and an infection could occur. As part of your regular check-up you can ensure that cavities are caught early and the damage is minimized.
If we identify a cavity that needs treatment, your dentist will drill to remove the rotten part of the tooth and apply an artificial filling which will protect your tooth from further damage.
Coming in for surgery? We’ll make sure you know everything that is involved with your surgery and everything you can expect before and after. No matter what your oral surgery needs, our team is dedicated to making it a safe and comfortable experience.
Early identification is the key to avoid root canals. When cavities are spotted early enough, a filling can prevent the need for a root canal. However, if the bacteria that causes cavities is allowed to penetrate the tooth structure and infect the pulp, this will lead to an infection that needs to be treated.
Tooth extractions may be necessary for a variety of reasons including decay, periodontal disease or breaks beyond repair. Because tooth removal can have implications on your chewing ability, jaw joint and teeth alignment, we’ll educate you on what this means for your smile and general oral health. You can learn more about tooth replacement as part of our cosmetic services.
Depending on how your wisdom teeth grow in, they may require removal. Regular teeth cleanings can help monitor your wisdom tooth growth so any removal will be done at the best time for your dental health.
