Webster Dental in Downers Grove offers preventative dental services from teeth cleaning, x-rays, and oral cancer screening to restorative services including crowns, dentures, and root canals.
General Dentistry - Our general dentistry services everything from a dental check-up, digital X-rays, and teeth cleaning to checking gums for gum disease and oral cancer screenings. A healthier smile begins with regular check-ups. Regular dental visits will also help prevent problems from developing. Continuity of care is an important part of any health plan and dental health is no exception. Keeping your mouth healthy is an essential piece of your overall health.
Teeth Cleaning - Webster Dental recommends having your teeth cleaned (prophylaxis) every six months. Our dental hygienist will remove harmful plaque and tartar between your teeth and along the gum line. Professional flossing will remove particles between the teeth that you may have missed. A high-powered electrical toothbrush is used for cleaning, removing stains, and polishing the teeth. To protect your teeth, your dental hygienist will also provide a fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect teeth, and help fight tooth decay.
Dental Sealants - They are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often. Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. But toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract food and plaque. Dental sealants protect these vulnerable areas by sealing out plaque and food.
Mouthguards and Night Guards - Mouthguards are also known as dental guards, nightguards, nocturnal bite plates, or bite splints. They are used for a variety of reasons. Athletic mouthguards are used for sports to reduce the severity of the injury, while nightguards help with teeth grinding, reduce snoring, and relieve obstructive sleep apnea.
Cosmetic Dentistry - A confident and healthy smile is something that most people want and have turned to cosmetic dentistry procedures to straighten, brighten, reshape, and even repair teeth. We use the latest cosmetic dental procedures and techniques, to help you achieve a better smile and keep it beautiful for years to come. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving a person's smile and has become increasingly popular and affordable in recent years!
Restorative Dentistry - Restorative dentistry restores your smile and health after tooth damage and disease. Webster Dental offers the latest treatments and advanced procedures to restore teeth both aesthetically and functionally. Dealing with oral health problems can cause discomfort, pain, and aesthetic concerns. Webster Dental will rebuild a bright, healthy smile with treatments such as dental crowns, invisible braces, and dental implants.
Dental Implants - Dental implants are a modern option for replacing missing teeth. Instead of setting on your gums like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like with a dental bridge, your replacement teeth are surgically anchored into your jawbone. Your new implant looks and feels like a natural tooth and lets you chew and talk like you did when your original tooth was still with you. When properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Periodontal Disease - Periodontal disease is also called gum disease. It is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and causes tooth loss if left untreated. Periodontal disease has also been linked to other health problems. There are two basic types of gum disease – gingivitis and periodontitis. Most adults have some form of gum disease and may not realize it.
