If you are diagnosed with gum disease, your treatment will depend on several factors, including your personal health history and the stage of your gum disease. Deer Run Dentistry provides several options to manage the disease including: professional cleaning, deep cleaning, and laser therapy.
Crooked teeth and bite problems are often solved with orthodontic treatment. Sometimes, even when teeth look straight, the upper and lower teeth may not fit together well causing a bite problem. The good news is that orthodontic treatment can lead to a healthy, beautiful smile, regardless of a pateint’s age.
If your teeth are discolored, tooth whitening may help. “Whitening” is any process that can make teeth look whiter. It may be safely done at home or in a dental office. Deer Run Dentistry offers prefabricated or custom take-home trays and in-office whitening. Dr. Brown can speak with you during an initial exam or recall visit to discuss which whitening options are best for you.

Dental implants are posts surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone. They replace one or more teeth that are next to each other. Implants are an effective way to replace missing natural teeth. When teeth are lost because of disease or an accident, dental implants may be a good option. You may want to choose dental implants if:
- You hide your smile because you have missing teeth
- Your dentures are not comfortable
- You are not happy with your removable partial dentures
- You don’t have/want your teeth to anchor a bridge restoration
People may choose implants to replace a signle tooth, more than one tooth, or to support a full set of dentures.
Dental implants are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials. Millions of implants are placed by dentists every year in the United States, which makes them a very common and popular option for replacing teeth.
