Your Journey with Us

The Process:

Initial Consultation: Understanding Your Dental Needs and Goals

Comprehensive Assessment: This first step involves a thorough examination of your oral health, utilizing advanced diagnostic tools such as digital X-rays and intraoral cameras. We discuss your dental history, any specific concerns, and your overall health to ensure a holistic approach to your treatment.

 

Discussion of Goals: We take the time to understand your aesthetic and functional goals, whether you’re looking to address a specific dental issue or seeking a complete smile makeover. This helps us tailor our approach to meet your expectations.

Personalized Treatment Planning: Crafting Your Unique Dental Solution

Tailored Strategies: Based on the initial consultation, we develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with the principles of Minimally Invasive and Biomimetic Dentistry. This plan outlines the proposed treatments, expected outcomes, and any alternatives for your consideration.

 

Informed Decision Making: We ensure you fully understand the benefits and implications of the suggested treatments. This includes visual aids, models, or digital simulations to provide a clear picture of the expected results, empowering you to make informed decisions about your care.

Advanced Treatment Procedures: Precision and Comfort in Care

Minimally Invasive Techniques: Our treatments are designed to be as non-invasive as possible. Techniques such as air abrasion allow for precise removal of decay without the need for traditional drilling, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

 

Biomimetic Restorations: We utilize the latest in adhesive dentistry and restorative materials that mimic the natural properties of your teeth. This approach ensures restorations not only look natural but also restore the strength and function of the tooth, adhering seamlessly to the remaining tooth structure.

 

Focus on Comfort: Throughout your treatment, we prioritize your comfort. Advanced techniques reduce the need for extensive drilling and, in many cases, eliminate the need for local anesthesia, making your dental experience more pleasant.

Recovery and Follow-Up: Ensuring Optimal Results and Care

Smoother, Quicker Recovery: Due to the conservative nature of our treatments, patients typically experience minimal discomfort and a faster recovery period. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to support your healing process.

 

Thorough Follow-Up Care: Our commitment to your oral health extends beyond the treatment room. Follow-up visits are scheduled to monitor your recovery and the success of your restorations. These visits allow us to address any concerns promptly and ensure your oral health remains on the right track.

 

Continued Oral Health Management: We offer guidance on preventive care practices to help maintain your oral health and prolong the results of your treatment. This includes personalized advice on oral hygiene, diet, and any additional preventive measures suited to your specific needs.

Cost of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and Biomimetic Dentistry in Oakdale

  • Consider the long-term savings from reduced future dental work.
  • Factor in the benefits of natural-looking results and preservation of your teeth.

Katie Shook

Found this place when we moved to the area and it’s great! I’ve always been hesitant about going to the dentist but now I go every 6 months like I’m supposed to! They’re thorough, knowledgeable, gentle, and friendly. Dr. Anderson originally took photos and X-rays of my teeth to monitor any changes and reviewed everything with me after the first appointment. They actually care and always ask if you have any questions or concerns with your teeth. I recommend them to everyone!
