At Integrated Dental Arts, we treat a wide range of dental concerns to ensure that our patients can experience life with beautiful and healthy smiles. Dental concerns go beyond simple cavities or minor damages. In fact, many things are considered dental concerns. Your teeth, gums, and jawbone all work together to preform daily tasks such as chewing or speaking. Anything affecting these dental structures from doing their jobs is considered a dental concern. At our Greeley family dentist office, Dr. Melvin Benson, Dr. Jacob Dunham, and Dr. Kerrie Cunningham work together every day to address all dental concerns and offer treatment plans that are personalized to each patient’s needs.
Treatment Options for Common Dental Concerns
If you have a dental concern, we encourage you to reach out to Integrated Dental Arts and learn more about what we can do to help restore your peace-of-mind and your dental health. The following are common dental concerns that we see in our office as well as our usual recommended treatment options:
Bleeding gums, or gingivitis, can often be the first sign of gum disease progression. Our doctors offer dental cleaning services to help clear your dental structures of harmful plaque and tartar. If your bleeding gums have already progressed to gum disease, we can also offer periodontal disease treatment options to restore your gums from the damages of gum disease.
Missing one or more tooth can cause you to have difficulty smiling, chewing, or speaking. We recommend seeking tooth replacement options as soon as you suffer from tooth loss to avoid further dental damage, tooth decay development, or discomfort. Out office provides a wide range of tooth replacement options including dental bridges, dental implants, dentures, and partials.
If you experience jaw pain, tension headaches, or earaches frequently outside of our office, these are symptoms worth mentioning to your dentist. At Integrated Dental Arts, Dr. Melvin Benson is our TMJ specialist. As a Dawson trained dentist, Dr. Benson has unique educational experiences which allow him to get to the root of your jaw pain and treat any underlying causes of your discomfort.
While loud snoring might not immediately seem like a dental concern, often your dentist will be able to help you reduce your snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused when an excess of soft tissues in your mouth and throat prevent you from maintaining the proper airway as you sleep. Dr. Benson is a sleep apnea specialist in Greeley, Co. He can provide oral appliance therapy options as well as lifestyle recommendations to help you reduce your loud snoring.
Many patients avoid scheduling their necessary dental care appointments because they experience dental anxiety. Dental anxiety can be caused by a previous bad experience at another dental practice. It can also occur due to a patient’s unsureness over our equipment and procedures. We offer sedation dentistry options to help keep our most anxious patients calm and comfortable for the duration of their appointment.
