Levesque Dentistry provides comprehensive general dentistry services to patients of all ages. Our dentists in Nashua, NH, practice Complete Dentistry, a holistic approach to overall dental health.
During a comprehensive exam, your dentist will examine all aspects of your oral health, including the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and muscles.
You can expect personalized dental care and attention when visiting our Nashua dentist office. We want to help you achieve optimal oral health and personal cosmetic goals.
General Dentistry Services
One of the most common dental treatments, dental fillings treat cavities in the tooth. At our office, we use mercury-free dental fillings that match the color of your teeth. Our office has CEREC technology to create porcelain inlays and onlays, too.
Preventative care is the basis of your oral health. Regular dental cleanings allow us to deep clean your teeth in the areas where your normal toothbrush doesn’t reach. You’re still at risk of tooth decay and gum disease without deep cleanings at the dentist.
Periodontal Disease Treatments
Gum disease is a serious concern that can lead to various health problems. Catching gum disease early is essential to reversing it and preventing more issues in the future. We use dental lasers for minimally invasive and comfortable gum disease treatment.
When we don’t treat tooth decay early enough, infection can spread to the innermost layers of the tooth into the soft tissue. A root canal removes the infected tissue and cleans the tooth’s interior.
There are many different reasons why you may need a tooth extraction. We extract teeth that are extremely infected or damaged, as well as teeth that are crowding the mouth and causing problems.
We welcome patients of all ages at our dental practice. The same issues that plague toddlers and children usually aren’t the same as what adults experience. We know the different problems and ensure each generation gets the specialized care they need.
Children and Toddlers
Even babies need to have proper oral healthcare. You should start bringing your child to the dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting or one year of age, whichever comes first. Just because the teeth aren’t permanent doesn’t mean baby teeth aren’t essential. Primary teeth are placeholders for the permanent teeth, reserving the right amount of space for those to come in the right position.
The most common dental problem for children is tooth decay. Their diets are high in sugar, and they aren’t as adept at brushing their teeth. We may recommend dental sealants to provide an extra barrier between the natural tooth structure and bacteria. We paint them onto the teeth, especially in the nooks and crannies of the molars, where tooth decay is most common.
Bringing children into the shop early helps prevent dental anxiety from developing in the future. You can sit with them during their treatment, and they can watch you receive your dental care. Bringing them to the dentist also allows us to provide patient education to both of you. Taking care of children’s teeth can be difficult. We’ll help you ensure that it’s being done properly.
Adolescents and Young Adults
As the mouth grows and changes, new challenges erupt. Once permanent teeth start coming in, we want to ensure your permanent smile will be straight and even. We may refer you to an orthodontist for treatment if the problems are extensive. However, we offer Invisalign treatment for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. You can also treat adult crooked teeth with Invisalign.
Wisdom teeth develop in the late teens and early twenties. We monitor the development as they grow. Some wisdom teeth erupt and cause the existing teeth to be cramped and crowded. Others may become impacted under the surface and can cause pain and infection. We’ll most likely recommend wisdom teeth extraction, as our jaws often aren’t big enough for this extra set of molars.
Just like the rest of our bodies, the years take their toll on our teeth. Our teeth naturally discolor with age, and discolor even more if we do things like drink coffee or smoke cigarettes throughout our life. Solutions like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers can take years off of the look of your smile.
Many seniors are on medications that can cause dry mouth. Gum recession is another common condition that we see in seniors. We’ll monitor the condition, recommending rinses to help with dry mouth and other solutions.
Seniors are also most likely to suffer from missing teeth. When you lose a permanent tooth, the jawbone starts deteriorating immediately. Replacing missing teeth improves your confidence and the function of your smile. We recommend dental implants to replace your teeth whenever possible. They’re the gold standard of tooth replacement and provide benefits that other solutions don’t offer.
