Early detection of dental problems is important because it can prevent small issues from turning into big ones that require major procedures, while also protecting your overall health. Our preventive dentistry services are designed to eliminate plaque and bacteria before gum disease and decay occur. In addition to dental cleanings, routine exams, digital X-rays, dental sealants, and fluoride treatments, we’ll check for early signs of oral cancer during your exam.
Tooth decay is a common oral health problem affecting people of all ages. Composite fillings are made from a mixture of hard, plastic-based materials that can be colored to blend in with the natural tooth. The easily moldable resin enables a bond that fits tightly on the treated tooth structure, thereby insulating sensitive underlying tissue better than metal fillings. Due to these benefits and affordability, composite has largely replaced silver amalgam as a filling material.
Our pediatric dentist loves providing comprehensive, compassionate and conservative dental care to infants, children and adolescents and making them feel special! By providing positive dental experiences to young children, we can inspire them to develop and maintain healthy oral habits throughout life. To ensure your child grows up with a healthy smile, we offer sealants, fluoride treatments and tooth-colored fillings along with regular check-ups.
When it comes to mishaps and accidents, teeth and gums are no exception. Dental trauma is common, especially in young children and teens so it’s important to visit a pediatric dentist with compassion and experience. At River City Dentistry and Implants, we have extensive expertise repairing broken teeth with crowns, saving knocked out teeth when possible and filling painful cavities. When you call us with a dental emergency, we’ll do everything we can to fit you into our schedule, the same or next day.
Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. During this procedure, we numb your gums with a local anesthetic, then gently pull your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. Dr. Allred is also experienced in more complex wisdom tooth (third molar) extraction in teens and adults and offers sedation to alleviate anxiety and make extraction more comfortable.
If you feel nervous or anxious about dental care, you’re not alone. We strive to provide high-quality and pain-free oral health care to your entire family. Our team is dedicated to providing compassionate care with a gentle touch. Our sedation options take the fear out of dentistry and allow complex treatments to be performed more comfortably and in less time. Nitrous oxide is the mildest type of sedation and safe even for children, as long as it’s administered by a trained pediatric dentist. We’ll discuss available options and help you make an informed decision about the type that best suits you or your family member.
A crown, also known as a cap, is a dental restoration that covers your tooth. Crowns replace the outer layer of enamel in teeth with large decay, failing fillings or small cracks. When a tooth has undergone a root canal, the weakened inner structure is predisposed to fracturing, so our dentist will place a protective crown on it. A dental bridge for one missing tooth includes a replacement tooth in the center supported by modified and crowned teeth on each side. Bridges are also an alternative to dental implants for a few missing teeth.
Your smile is one of the best ways to make a great first impression. If the appearance of your smile makes you hesitant to reveal it, this can lead to both low self-esteem and functional issues. Our cosmetic dentist is dedicated to making smiles more beautiful with personalized cosmetic dentistry in Post Falls, ID. We offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures customized to your unique needs, including inlays, onlays, composite bonding, teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Soft dental tissue (pulp) inside the center of your tooth contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue that can become infected and cause pain. A root canal procedure eliminates pain by removing infection from the center of your tooth to keep it intact and prevent the infection from spreading. After the infected pulp and nerve is removed, the space is filled and sealed to protect it. Teeth that have been treated with a root canal are weaker, so they require a crown to protect them from fracturing and maintain full function and aesthetics.
Snoring can be more than an annoying habit—it can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In addition to sleep deprivation for you and your partner, OSA has been linked to serious problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. This happens when your airway is obstructed, often by your tongue or other soft tissue. For mild to moderate cases of OSA, a customized mouth guard can help alleviate this problem by gently shifting your jaw into a position that keeps your airway open as you sleep.
If you frequently clench your jaw or grind your teeth (bruxism), this puts pressure on your TMJ. This can cause TMJ disorder or dysfunction and associated symptoms including jaw pain and chronic headaches. A customized mouth guard gently moves your jaw into a position to relieve tension and pain while giving your inflamed joint a chance to heal.
At River City Dentistry and Implants, our goal isn’t limited to offering excellent dentistry, we strive to build lifelong relationships with families. Every time you visit our family dental practice in Post Falls, ID, we look forward to getting to know you a little better. Getting to know you also helps us customize solutions to address your family members’ unique dental needs. While we encourage you to follow excellent oral hygiene habits at home, it’s important that you visit us regularly for checkups and professional cleanings. This helps prevent any problems and enables us to detect possible problems in early stages. When you entrust our dentist with your family’s smiles, we’ll provide the guidance and care you need to maintain proper oral and overall health for years to come.
