What Services Does Family Dentistry Provide?
The DenTull team offers various family dentistry services, including:
During an exam, your dentist carefully assesses your oral health. They review your dental records and examine your teeth, gums, and tongue for potential issues.
It’s crucial to schedule an oral exam twice a year, even if you don’t have any symptoms. Regular visits to DenTull can keep your smile healthy for years to come.
Teeth cleaning removes plaque –– a film of saliva, bacteria, and food particles –– from beneath your gums and the surfaces of your teeth. The DenTull team offers ultrasonic cleaning, which is quick, accurate, and pain-free.
Oral X-rays use digital sensors and advanced imaging technology to capture photos of your tooth roots, jaw, and alveolar bone (the bone that supports your teeth). X-rays can identify underlying issues, like deep decay or damage to the tooth pulp.
Aesthetic dentistry uses whitening treatments, orthodontics, or restorations to improve your smile’s appearance. Dr. Tull has a degree in art and uses his background to guide the treatment process.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges fix or replace damaged, decaying, or missing teeth. DenTull has a CEREC milling machine onsite, allowing patients to receive same-day crowns.
If you or your child have crowded or crooked teeth, the DenTull team might prescribe orthodontics with clear aligners. Clear aligners place pressure on your teeth and jaw, slowly moving them into the optimal position.
The DenTull team tailors family dentistry to each person’s goals, symptoms, and needs.
