Our General Dental Services
Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential to good oral health. Dr. Foleck and our hygienists provide professional cleanings to remove built-up plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home cannot reach. We use digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to carefully examine your teeth and gums. Then your teeth will be polished and flossed to remove stains and deposits and leave you with a sparkling clean smile!
Do you have a cavity or other area of decay in your tooth? Dr. Foleck can expertly treat it with a dental filling. We offer tooth-colored composite fillings that blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, as well as traditional amalgam fillings. Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to detect decay early and fill cavities before they grow larger. Whether in the front or back of your mouth, our skillful techniques will give you a natural-looking tooth filling.
Dental emergencies like chipped or broken teeth, lost fillings, or sudden tooth pain can happen unexpectedly. The Foleck Center offers same-day emergency dental appointments during regular office hours. Dr. Foleck will examine your emergency issue, explain your treatment options, and work to resolve the problem right away. We know dental pain or trauma is stressful, so our compassionate, prompt care will put your mind at ease.
We provide comprehensive lifetime dental care for all members of your family. Dr. Foleck has expertise in working with patients of all ages, from children to seniors. We offer a welcoming atmosphere to make children feel at ease while teaching them good oral hygiene. Teens can get advice on braces, and our senior patients receive individualized care and monitoring for age-related dental issues. The whole family benefits from top-quality general dentistry with a personal touch.
Dental sealants provide an easy, painless way to protect your children’s teeth. Dr. Foleck bonds these thin, plastic coatings to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Sealants act as a barrier against decay-causing plaque and acids. Applying sealants when molars first come in around ages five to seven provides long-term cavity prevention. Regular dental visits allow us to monitor sealants and re-apply them as needed.
Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss for adults. Dr. Foleck offers specialized periodontal care to treat gingivitis and periodontitis. We perform deep cleanings to remove harmful bacteria below the gum line. Advanced antimicrobial rinses and antibiotics may be prescribed to fight infection. We can also do gum grafting to restore lost gum tissue for better oral health.
Root Canal Therapy
If tooth decay reaches the inner pulp and nerves of your tooth, you may need a root canal treatment. Dr. Foleck is highly trained in doing these endodontic treatments. First, we numb the area for your comfort. Then we access the tooth to remove infected material and thoroughly clean and disinfect inside the roots. The tooth is sealed with a permanent filling. With proper care, a root canal can save your tooth and eliminate pain.
