Dental Cleanings and Dental Exams

Prevent big dental problems with routine dental cleanings and exams

At S&G Family Dentistry, we want to get to know you and your teeth better so we can help you keep your confident smile. Routine dental cleanings and exams are the keys to good oral health and a bright smile. Many serious dental problems can be prevented or minimized with a thorough checkup by one of our expert dentists every six months.

Give your smile the benefits of regular checkups

Here is what will happen during your checkup:

  • A licensed dental hygienist will take digital X-rays (plus intraoral pictures if needed) of your teeth to help spot any underlying problems
  • The hygienist will gently clean your teeth as well as examine them
  • You'll leave our office with that thoroughly clean feeling you can only get at the dentist
  • Our hygienist will note any problem areas your dentist needs to examine closer during the initial exam
  • One of our experienced dentists will then carefully evaluate the health of your teeth and mouth and take a closer look at any areas of concern
  • The dentist will perform an oral cancer screening, airway evaluation, and wellness checks on your TMJ and gums
  • We will make any recommendations necessary to keep your smile bright and healthy

Tooth Fillings

Stop decay in its tracks with tooth fillings!

S&G Family Dentistry is your go-to dentist office for tooth fillings. Our expert team has many years of experience placing fillings and bringing back smiles to people in and around Leawood.

We primarily use composite resin fillings because they:

  • Match your natural tooth color and help you smile with more confidence
  • Bond directly to the tooth, making the tooth stronger
  • Require less tooth shaping before placing, meaning less discomfort for you
  • Can be placed in a single visit without needing to return to our office

Tooth fillings are one of the most common dental services our patients require. So, in addition to composite, we also offer metal and gold fillings, ceramic inlays and onlays. The choice is yours, and we'll discuss all these great options with you.

Say Goodbye to Cavities with Tooth Fillings

Nobody likes to think about getting cavities. They're usually the result of a lack of proper brushing, flossing and routine exams. Bacteria left on a tooth produce acid that eats away at the tooth's enamel. Eventually, a small hole will form called a cavity.

If left untreated, the cavity may extend to the inner part of the tooth and cause infection. If this happens, you will most likely experience significant pain and discomfort, especially while chewing.

Come in for a visit, and our dentists will comfortably place a tooth filling to protect your tooth against further damage from decay. Request an appointment or call (913) 451-2929.

Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges

Repair your damaged or broken teeth with dental crowns and bridges

At S&G Family Dentistry, we are experts at repairing dental problems using dental crowns and bridges. Visit our Leawood office and let the team determine if a crown or bridge is the right option to restore your natural, gorgeous smile!

A crown is an outer covering placed over an injured or diseased tooth to protect it from further damage. It will function as the biting surface for the tooth, so you can bite down and chew on food pain-free.

Bridges help restore smiles with one or more missing teeth. Sometimes a bridge is called a partial denture. It replaces the missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally "bridges" the gap where the tooth or teeth used to be.

Dental crowns and dental bridges are excellent options to:

  • Repair your chipped, broken, or decayed tooth
  • Boost your confidence by restoring your smile
  • Protect a weak tooth from further damage
  • Replace one or more missing teeth
  • Eliminate your discomfort when chewing

Get your smile back with a dental crown.

Our dentists will use one of three different materials for your crown:

  • Ceramic – Blends naturally with your teeth and is the least expensive option
  • Zirconia – Stronger than ceramic and has a very natural-looking appearance
  • Gold – The strongest but most expensive option (usually used by request)

Your dentist will determine if a crown is suitable for your situation. We'll make impressions of your teeth and take images so your restoration can be custom-made in the lab. Once your crown is ready, we'll prep the tooth and remove all disease and decay. Then we'll cement the crown over the top of your tooth and ensure it fits perfectly and blends in naturally with your other teeth. You now have a restored tooth and can flash your smile confidently.

If your damaged or diseased tooth needs more than a standard filling but doesn't require a crown, a dental inlay or onlay is a great option to fill the space between cusps. We'll have one custom-made for you and then cement it securely to the top of your tooth.

We make your dental crown or bridge procedure easy and comfortable

Your comfort is our top priority at S&G Family Dentistry. We'll do our best to treat you like family and make sure you feel relaxed and at ease when you have your dental appliance placed. Our staff is very personable and here to make your visit as pleasant as possible. Just ask if you'd like a comfy pillow or cozy blanket during your procedure!

Request an appointment or call us at (913) 451-2929 today, and we'll schedule a no-hassle appointment to discuss your dental crown and bridge options.

Root Canals

Convenient and painless root canal treatment when you need it

If oral bacteria invade the pulp (the material inside your tooth), it causes a painful infection. Our dentists can perform a root canal that removes the damaged, infected pulp with comfortable precision tools to eliminate the pain, seal your tooth and allow it to remain in place.

A root canal is sometimes needed when you have the following causes and symptoms:

  • A cavity left too long
  • Cracked or broken tooth
  • Excessive tooth pain
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swollen, painful gums
  • Pimple on your gum
  • Swollen, painful jaw
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Loose tooth
  • Pus drainage

Don't worry if you have pain and need root canal therapy; we will help you regain your healthy smile. Request an appointment or call S&G Family Dentistry at (913) 451-2929 today to schedule your appointment.

Athletic Mouth Guards

Protect your smile while you play

The dentists at S&G Family Dentistry love when our patients are active. A healthy mouth is only one part of being healthy, and we encourage exercise whenever possible. However, we encourage you to protect your teeth while being active with a custom athletic mouthguard.

Our custom design will benefit you in many ways:

  • Ease of breathing during physical activity
  • Complete comfort
  • Total protection for your teeth, gums, and lips

Protect your teeth and your wallet

Think of a custom athletic mouthguard as a type of insurance policy for your smile. With this initial investment in a high-quality, custom-made mouthguard, you can prevent a dental emergency and possibly the need for expensive, complex dental work due to a preventable injury.

A custom mouthguard is more expensive than the guards you will find in a sporting goods store or drug store. You are paying for a custom fit, comfort and protection. That cheap boil-and-bite mouthguard will not protect you as well as a guard crafted for your unique mouth. Plus, one-size-fits-all mouthguards tend to be bulky with excess plastic, which makes it difficult for you to breathe and communicate while wearing one.

Why You Need a Custom Mouthguard?

If you are active, you should be wearing some form of mouthguard. We can craft the exact protection you need depending on your specific activity. For example, a football player needs a different form of protection than a mountain biker or a volleyball player.

Learn more about custom athletic mouthguards at your next dental appointment. Or if you are ready, Request an appointment or call us at (913) 451-2929 to begin the process toward a safer mouth. Feel better knowing your smile is protected while you're on the court, field, track or trail!

TMJ & Teeth Grinding

Get relief from chronic jaw pain

TMJ is your temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-man-DIB-u-lur) joint, the sliding hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. It allows your jaw to move so that you can open and close your mouth, talk, and chew food. Many people develop problems with their TMJ at some point.

Are you experiencing any of these TMJ symptoms?

  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Frequent migraines or headaches
  • Popping or clicking noise when chewing
  • Earaches
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

If you are, you may have a TMJ disorder. One of our expert dentists will perform a thorough examination to determine the cause of your pain. We can offer you treatment options to get the relief you need from ongoing jaw pain, headaches and earaches. We can even help you stop grinding and clenching your teeth while sleeping.

Our dentists will fit you for a custom mouthguard to wear while sleeping. This will eliminate teeth grinding and move your jaw into the proper position to ease your TMJ discomfort and pain. Depending on your case, we may also recommend a particular appliance called an NTI splint. This device keeps your teeth from touching so that grinding them is impossible. As pressure is relieved on your TMJ, it will have a chance to heal, and you'll be on your way to a healthy, pain-free mouth.

Request an appointment or call us today at (913) 451-2929, and a friendly staff member will set up an appointment to get help with your TMJ discomfort.
