We provide complete oral healthcare services at all our Phoenix dental offices. From six-month cleanings and exams to dental restorations and preventative treatments, the professionals at Dental Depot are dedicated to keeping your family’s health a priority. We also have dental offices in Mesa, Surprise, and Peoria.
Patients of all ages – including children – should receive dental checkups and cleanings at least twice per year. Keeping routinely scheduled appointments is crucial for detecting common oral health conditions and potential issues as early as possible. As with the other systems of the body, early detection usually means treatment will be less invasive and less costly. During oral examinations, our dentists look for signs of disease that might affect the teeth, gums and jawbones. From screening patients for oral cancer to looking for potential gum disease or tooth decay, our checkups are incredibly thorough.
Dental Depot is for
Kids and Adults
Most children start to lose baby teeth around age 6, a process that continues until around age 12, when all adult teeth have erupted. However, how these adult teeth erupt influences your child’s future health.
We provide dental checkups and cleanings, oral health education, preventive treatments and restorations for children and teenagers. Everyone at Dental Depot is dedicated to making sure younger patients feel comfortable and at ease. Pediatric dental care is a large part of our focus, though it is our mission to achieve optimal oral health for all our patients.
Dental Depot’s multiple offices and Saturday scheduling offers added convenience in today’s busy world. Each location provides many services and specialties, eliminating the need for additional referrals and appointments. Schedule an appointment today to find out how we can help you achieve and maintain great dental health for a lifetime.
Six-month checkups are often the first line of defense for identifying and preventing potential issues. Using x-rays, exams and cleanings, our dentists can evaluate your mouth for any signs of distress in the teeth or gums. Pinpointing problems early on can help ensure that any necessary treatment will be less invasive, less expensive and more effective.
Dental cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health and staving off infection or disease. Simple brushing is often not sufficient for removing buildup or debris from the myriad of surfaces in your mouth. Using specialized instruments, a dental professional can clear those hard-to-reach places of plaque, tarter, and other buildup, preventing premature tooth decay, gum disease, and gingivitis.
Professional Teeth Cleanings Keep Teeth Strong.
Brushing and flossing alone are not enough to remove buildup and stave off gum disease. Bacteria, tarter, plaque, and other periodontal diseases. Professional cleanings ensure that all surface of your gums and teeth are clean and health. Regular exams also allow a professional to evaluate your mouth for any existing or potential problems – such as tooth decay or gum sensitivity – and discuss additional prevention measures with you.
Fluoride treatments and dental sealants are fast, non-invasive, and inexpensive ways to preserve the health of your teeth. Over time, the enamel that protects your teeth from bacteria can erode, exacerbated by the acids in foods and drinks. Applying a fluoride gel or varnish can help repair damaged enamel and boost your teeth’s resiliency.
The surfaces of your teeth are not flat and smooth; their grooves and pits make them prime targets for bacteria to breed. Molars in particular are especially susceptible to cavities and decay. Composted of cavity-resistant material, dental sealants are applied to teeth following a thorough cleaning and prevent further decay by sealing off biting surfaces and problem spots.
Tooth decay can be unavoidable even with the best oral hygiene practices. Small areas can be filled with porcelain, a silver amalgam, or composite resin to ward off further damage. Dental fillings are a quick, minimally invasive procedure that provides long-lasting protection.
Extractions, which remove teeth at the root, are a common treatment for a variety of reasons. In children with baby teeth that are slow to fall out, extractions may be necessary to make room for erupting adult teeth or to accommodate orthodontic treatment.
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that generally erupt in young adulthood. If not removed, they can often lead to a number of problems like misalignment, headaches and jaw pain. Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted as a preventative measure and, while the procedure itself requires both local anesthesia and often a sedative, the side effects are relatively minimal.
In more serious cases, teeth may require extraction because they are too badly damaged, decayed or diseased to be restored.
