What isGeneral Dentistry?

Our primary intention at Whole Dental Wellness is to maintain your healthy smile.

To keep your family healthy, we don’t just treat your teeth; we treat the whole patient to ensure healthy teeth, healthy gums, and beautiful smiles now and wellness into the future. Whole Dental Wellness offers both general and cosmetic dentistry for your convenience.

Dental Hygiene

Gum disease (periodontitis) is an infection and inflammation of the gums which support and surround the bones of your teeth.

Nearly 50 percent of adults over 30 years old have some form of periodontitis. At Whole Dental Wellness, our Birmingham specialist-led dental team is committed to oral health for you and your family.

Properly brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time and flossing your teeth daily are integral to your dental health. Speak with one of our Birmingham dentists at Whole Dental Wellness about proper brushing and flossing techniques.

FluorideTreatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral found in our bones and teeth. It can also be found in your water but is typically used by dentists to strengthen the enamel of your teeth and prevent cavities.

Depending on the health of the teeth and gums, we recommended fluoride treatments every three, six, or 12 months for children and adults. Your fluoride treatment commonly happens after your dental cleaning and takes about five minutes. For children, the fluoride may be in the form of a flavored gel-filled tray they bite into to ensure all areas of their teeth are covered. The fluoride gel is brushed on your teeth. Our Birmingham office offers the best fluoride treatments in the Detroit metro area.

Fillings and Bondings

At Whole Dental Wellness, we hope with proper dental hygiene and care, you can prevent the need for fillings or bondings.

Fillings are made of various materials to protect the tooth from further decay and prevent you from having any sensitivity or pain from the cavity. The five types of fillings used are:

  • Amalgam
  • Cast Gold
  • Composite
  • Glass Ionomer
  • Porcelain

It is important to understand that fillings do not last forever and may need to be replaced between six to 10 years, depending on the filling used. Tooth Bonding is an affordable way to dramatically improve the look of your teeth without surgery by offering the following improvements:

  • Repair chipped teeth
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Improve the color of teeth
  • Mask tooth discolorations
  • Make crooked teeth look straight
  • Change the size or shape of teeth

Dental bonding can be completed in one day but depends on the complexity of the tooth restoration needed.

ToothExtractions

We provide our patients the most pain-free tooth extraction techniques possible. Various factors may require your teeth to be removed, including:

  • Baby teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease 
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Crowded teeth

Early detection of oral cancers is integral to the success of your recovery and health. Our Birmingham dentists are committed to your optimal health. We use innovative technology to scan for oral cancers, including the VELscope (Visually Enhanced Lesion Scope). The VELscope is a handheld device that detects precancerous and early-stage cancerous tissue that may not be seen with the naked eye. For suspected tissues, we may perform a biopsy and send it out to receive your pathology report. We will work cohesively with your physician to ensure you receive the oral care required and get you on the road to recovery.

Non-Surgical tooth extractions

The typical dental extraction for unbroken and visible teeth is a traditional tooth extraction at our Birmingham location. Non-surgical tooth extractions may involve a topical numbing cream if needed.

Surgical tooth extractions

Often, complicated tooth removal requires surgical extraction by one of our specialists. We make sure you are comfortable and pain-free during the entire process. Types of surgical tooth extractions include:

  • Broken teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Dental emergencies
  • Dental implant preparation

After your surgical tooth extraction, we provide our after-hours phone number if any questions or concerns may arise after your dental surgery. You are sure to receive the best care at Whole Dental Wellness.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are designed to look and feel like natural teeth and are used to cap or ‘crown’ an original tooth damaged by decay, breakage, or used after a root canal.

The crown will cover the entire tooth up to the gum line. A dental bridge is a permanent tooth structure that consists of multiple crowns fused together to replace an area of missing teeth. You will receive a temporary bridge while your new bridge is constructed in our lab.

The temporary bridge will enable normal teeth function such as chewing, speaking, and proper jaw alignment. Your bridge will look and feel like natural teeth and be maintained like normal teeth with proper brushing and flossing.

Oral CancerScreenings

We care about your entire health, which is why we offer free oral cancer screenings to all of our patients. Cancerous indicators in the mouth include:

  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • White or red patches in your mouth
  • Sore throat and chronic hoarseness
  • Thickening or lumpiness of the lining on the inside of the mouth

Early detection of oral cancers is integral to the success of your recovery and health. Our Birmingham dentists are committed to your optimal health. We use innovative technology to scan for oral cancers, including the VELscope (Visually Enhanced Lesion Scope). The VELscope is a handheld device that detects precancerous and early-stage cancerous tissue that may not be seen with the naked eye. For suspected tissues, we may perform a biopsy and send it out to receive your pathology report. We will work cohesively with your physician to ensure you receive the oral care required and get you on the road to recovery.
