What sets McKenzie Dental Center apart?

McKenzie Dental Center provides comprehensive dental care for children, adolescents and adults. For those patients who are fearful of dental treatment, we proudly provide oral sedation so that you can have all of your dental treatment done in one or two visits while being as comfortable as possible.

For your convenience, we also place implants, do root canals and periodontal surgeries, and extract 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) right here in our Springfield office.

Full Dental Services Provided in our Springfield Office:

Bonding

The covering of a tooth surface with a tooth-colored composite to repair and/or change the color or shape of a tooth, for instance, due to stain or damage.

Braces

Devices (bands, wires, ceramic appliances) put in place to gradually reposition teeth to a more favorable alignment.

Bridges

Appliance fixed to teeth adjacent to a space. Replaces one or more missing teeth, cemented or bonded to supporting teeth, or implants adjacent to the space.

Cosmetic Contouring

A procedure in which small amounts of tooth enamel are removed to change a tooth's length, shape, or surface.

Cosmetic Dentistry

A branch of dentistry under which treatments are performed to enhance the color and shape of teeth.

Crowns

Dental restoration covering all or most of the natural tooth; the artificial cap can be made of porcelain, composite, or metal and is cemented on top of the damaged tooth.

Dentures

A removable replacement of artificial teeth for missing natural teeth, and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Extractions

The process or act of removing a tooth or tooth parts.

Fillings

Restoration of lost tooth structure with metal, porcelain, or resin materials.

Flap Surgery

A flap procedure cleans the roots of a tooth and repairs bone damage caused by gum disease.

Grafts

A piece of tissue or alloplastic material placed in contact with tissue to repair a defect or supplement a deficiency.

Implants

A metal rod, usually made of titanium, that is surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone where a tooth is missing; it serves as the tooth root and anchor for the crown, bridge, or denture that is placed over it.

TMJ

The term given to a problem that concerns the muscles and joint that connects the lower jaw with the skull. The condition is characterized by facial pain and restricted ability to open or move the jaw. It is often accompanied by a clicking or popping sound when the jaw is opened or closed.

Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.

Periodontal Surgery

The specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, diseases, and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament.

Root Canal Therapy

Procedure used to save an abscessed tooth in which the pulp chamber is cleaned out, disinfected, and filled with a permanent filling.

Scaling and Root Planing

A deep-cleaning, nonsurgical procedure whereby plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are scraped away (scaling) and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth (planing).

Sealants

A thin, clear or white resin substance that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth to prevent decay.

Specialty Dentures

Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth. Technological advancements have resulted in dentures that are lightweight and mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Most dentures are made from a combination of metals and synthetic material such as acrylic resin.

Uneven Gums

When gums rest too low, or too high, on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.

Veneers

A thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored plastic or porcelain that is bonded directly to the front side of natural teeth to improve their appearance.

Whitening

A chemical or laser process to lighten the color of teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Third (last) molars that usually emerge at age 18-25.
