We provide dental services for the whole family. From a child's first visit to an adult's oral health, we have your family covered! With options to listen to music or use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during your visit, we cater to those who dislike visiting the dentist. Below are some of the services we provide in our Grand Junction dental office.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Is your tooth infected? Sometimes a root canal is needed to clean out the root(s) of a tooth. The roots are disinfected and sealed afterward to eliminate any further bacteria exposure. Patients are numb during the procedure and nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas" is available.
Missing a tooth or need to have one extracted? Dr. Birch does implant-supported dentistry. This means he refers you to an oral surgeon or prosthodontist who is specialized and trained in placing implants into the gums and bones. Working with the specialist, Dr. Birch then finishes the implant by placing the "tooth" on top of the implant post. This matches the rest of your teeth and gives you the look and feel of a real tooth.
Another option when you are missing a tooth is a bridge. Dr. Birch attaches a crown to two or more teeth to hold it in place. This gives you the functionality to eat and is cosmetically pleasing when you smile. Dr. Birch can review the options for replacing missing teeth and then you can decide what is best for you!
It is recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) that teeth be professionally cleaned every six months. Our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and take any preventative and routine x-rays needed. Then, Dr. Birch will do a comprehensive dental exam and explain any findings and recommendations. Fluoride treatments, sealings, and other services can be arranged, too!
Yellow teeth: the sign of aging, coffee drinking, or some medication use. We have options for teeth whitening to give you a younger, brighter smile. In-office whitening is a quick way to whiten your teeth. We use the ZOOM whitening system in-office. Some patients prefer a whitening tray and gel solution for a more DIY at home approach. This often results in less tooth sensitivity. Whatever you prefer, Aaron Birch Family Dental has the solution to give you a whiter, brighter smile.
Thanks to CEREC technology, crowns and veneers can be milled in-house and on the same day. This means our patients don't have to make multiple appointments, take more time away from work, or come back for the final crown to be placed at a later date. The process is simple and easy. It takes one day and you're done!
