Family Dentistry

At Kemp Dental, we provide diagnostic, preventative, and restorative services to you and your whole family because your oral health is very important to your body’s total health. We recommend exams and cleanings every six months to ensure the quality of your mouth and teeth and to detect potential problems early. If decay is present, we have several natural looking solutions that will restore your smile back to health. Please click on the links below to read more about our services.

  • Cleanings, Exams, and Periodontal Maintenance

    At your appointment, one of our hygienists will give you a thorough exam assessing the overall health of your teeth, gums, tongue, and lips. X-rays may be taken to diagnose hidden decay and excess tartar, plaque, and stains will be removed. Finally, your teeth will be polished giving you a bright, fresh smile.

    Periodontal Maintenance is required when bacteria in plaque attacks your gum tissue causing it to become inflamed and detach from the tooth. During periodontal maintenance, your hygienist will remove plaque and build up from below the gum line, promoting healthy gums and teeth, and then finish with polishing.

  • Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges

    If decay is found in one or more of your teeth, it is very important the decay is removed and the space is filled to retain the health and structure of the tooth. We offer “tooth colored” fillings made from a sturdy composite material to do just that. We will match the shade of your natural tooth so there is no obvious difference between your natural tooth, and your filling.

    Sometimes, if enough decay is present, a porcelain crown is required to fill and cover the whole tooth, restoring it to its natural shape.

    Bridges are non-removable, tooth colored, porcelain replacements for missing teeth.

  • Do I need an appointment to come in?

    In order to provide you and our other patients with the best possible service, we do ask that you call our office prior to coming in. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call our office immediately and one of our staff members will give you instructions on what to do next.

  • Root Canals

    Sometimes, a root canal is needed if extensive decay has reached the nerve of the tooth. The soft tissue inside the inner chamber (root) of the tooth and the nerve are removed and then filled to prevent further decay.
