Did you know that the health of your mouth is closely connected to your overall wellness, and vice versa? The body of research supporting oral health as a means to live longer and better is evolving daily. A strong general dentistry ally is an invaluable asset. Dr. Dona Prince and her dental team want to be your partners in oral health in Sioux City.
What Is General Dentistry?
The American Dental Association defines nine specialty areas of dentistry. A general dentist has educational background in all those areas, and day-to-day experience in most of them. A general dentist takes a broad approach, rather than focusing on only one age group, type of treatment, or oral problem. The general dentist is something like a primary care physician . . . for your mouth. Dr. Prince is adept at providing most of the services you are likely to need, and offers referral to a trusted specialist for complex situations.
What Kind of Services Can You Expect?
- Hygiene and prevention – This area of general dentistry is focused on helping you avoid oral problems, keeping teeth comfortable and attractive. It includes professional teeth cleaning, fluoride treatment and dental sealants to reduce the risk of tooth decay, and periodontal maintenance for healthy gums.
- Dental restorations – Dr. Prince uses tooth-colored fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays to repair damage from cavities and trauma. With CEREC technology on site, these restorations can usually be completed in just one visit!
- Tooth replacement – Even one missing tooth has a significant impact on your smile and the condition of your whole mouth. With partial and full dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants, Dr. Prince offers a tooth replacement option that fits your lifestyle.
- Oral surgeries and more – Dr. Prince handles bone grafting, implant placement, extractions, root canal therapy, tongue and lip tie release, and other procedures in-house. Her patients get the benefit of leading edge techniques, with the comfort of familiar surroundings and a dental team they know and trust.
Dr. Prince has been caring for the oral health of friends and neighbors in the Sioux City area since 1981. New patients of all ages are welcome. Call 712-274-2228.
