Your oral heath is important to us, and we want to be the ones who help you to enjoy many years of healthy teeth and gums. If you are new to the Gonzales and Prairieville area, or if you are in need of a dentist who can provide comprehensive care, your first examination with us is free, and includes digital x-rays.
Even if you brush and floss regularly, annual professional teeth cleanings are recommended to remove plaque and other unwanted deposits from hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. We also treat periodontal disease with scaling and root planing.
If you are missing one or more teeth, these titanium posts can be grafted to your jaw bone, providing superior support for dentures, crowns, and bridges. Placing dental implants requires at least two surgical procedures and several months of healing, but can provide you with up to 40 years of dependable support. Contact our office serving Prairieville and Gonzales today to learn how these and other general dentistry treatments can help you improve your oral health.
The teeth are essential for proper eating, speaking, and support of your facial features. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, we can help by creating custom dentures that will help you enjoy these essential functions once again. Dr. Lamendola & Dr. Black will also make sure your dentures give proper facial support to restore a youthful look.
When decay spreads to the tooth’s pulp (the inner portion of the tooth consisting of nerves, blood vessels, and other tissue), careful removal of the pulp becomes necessary to salvage the healthy exterior of the tooth. Once the pulp has been completely removed, the tooth is filled with a rubber-like substance and sealed with a filling, leaving you with a healthy tooth.
If you have a cavity (a decayed area in a tooth's outer structure), we use tooth-colored resin to fill the void after the decay is removed. This helps to preserve and support the tooth structure.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth develop behind your molars during young adulthood. These teeth often erupt improperly, becoming impacted in your jaw and causing pronounced pain and crowding of your existing teeth. Because normal oral functions are possible without wisdom teeth, we provide wisdom teeth extraction to restore comfort and health to those who experience related complications. We also perform extraction of decayed or damaged permanent teeth when necessary.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If you are missing a tooth or have a tooth that is extensively damaged, these special tooth-shaped prosthetics can be custom-crafted to provide support or fill a gap in your smile.
