At Waterford Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we focus on identifying the unique needs of each patient to provide the appropriate care and personalized hygiene advice. We want you to be motivated to maintain a healthy smile between visits with good oral hygiene habits and trust us to address your dental concerns. Our Leland, NC dentist office is a space where patients can feel comfortable receiving treatments that help them bite, chew, and speak with ease.
Dental Care for the Whole Family
We provide comprehensive care for patients of all ages. Our children’s dental services help keep growing teeth healthy and our hygienists help younger patients learn the importance of caring for their oral health. Making our office a comfortable place for our pediatric patients is imperative to preventing dental fear or anxiety.
Caring for baby teeth as soon as they emerge helps the future development of permanent teeth. Our team can help educate new parents on how to care for their child’s teeth and gums even before their first teeth emerge. Teaching younger patients and their parents about their oral health helps prevent severe dental problems and leads to healthy lifelong habits.
Comfortable, Comprehensive Treatment
Our mission is to change the way our patients approach their dental visits, in terms of general preventative care as well as restorative and cosmetic needs. We want our patients to leave our office motivated to take control of their oral health. To add to patient comfort and relaxation, we provide dental sedation with nitrous oxide. Dental sedation allows patients to feel relaxed during surgical or complex procedures. Sedation dentistry also benefits patients who suffer from dental fear or anxiety. Our dental team can use nitrous oxide for fearful or anxious patients during more routine care if needed.
Modern Dental Technology and Services
Digital technology can improve your patient experience and enable us to provide more accurate diagnoses for better results. Our modern dental services allow our team to provide precise, high-quality care.
Digital x-rays allow us to capture clear and precise images of the patient’s mouth so we can form a more complete and accurate diagnosis. X-rays capture images in an instant and make the process quick and comfortable for patients. Modern digital x-rays have also significantly reduced radiation exposure, to provide immediate, high-resolution digital images.
Traditional dental impressions use a thick putty material that can be uncomfortable and messy. Digital impressions use a handheld scanning camera to capture images of the teeth and gums. Just like digital x-rays, digital impressions can be easily saved and shared.
Intraoral cameras take digital images of the teeth and gums. Using these tiny handheld cameras, we are able to show patients any problem areas in real-time to help educate them on our treatment process. Like x-rays, intraoral cameras are a great tool to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
We offer an array of surgical and non-surgical treatment options for patients with periodontitis or gum disease. Non-surgical scaling and root planing can target gum inflammation, while surgical treatments stop gum recession, regenerate bone and tissue, and prevent tooth loss.
Invisalign is a new and innovative method that can straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. This treatment method differs from traditional metal braces because they can be removed to brush, floss, and eat. Clear Invisalign aligners also conform to the teeth and do not irritate the gums, unlike more traditional treatments.
