Preventative Dentistry & General Dental Care Omaha, NE
The Omaha dental professionals at Aksarben Smiles are committed to preventing dental diseases in all forms. Our first priority is the well-being of our patients and to promote optimal dental health. Our dentist and dental staff will gladly tell you about the latest dental procedures, techniques, and dental products—from the best toothpaste to use to planning a healthier diet and brushing routine–to help you prevent dental disease before it starts. We welcome any questions that you have or concerns that may help bring to light courses of action to help you optimize your dental health and plan the needs for the life of your teeth.
Comprehensive Examinations Schedule an Appointment
Dental Exams & Dental Xrays
During your initial visit to our Omaha office, our dentist will perform a full dental exam, including an oral cancer screening, evaluation of existing restorations, gum disease evaluation, digital x-rays, and tooth surface evaluation to check for any decay. If required, our dental staff might recommend preventive dental care options, including but not limited to, fluoride treatment, sealants, or periodontal gum disease treatments that are designed to help you maintain your dental health.
Cleanings Schedule an Appointment
Dental Teeth Cleaning
Creating and implementing a daily oral hygiene in your Omaha family’s daily routine is the first and most important thing you can do to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Although you can prevent a wide variety of dental problems simply with proper brushing and flossing, it is important that you visit a dental care professional at least twice a year or more, if you have pre-existing oral health issues. At Aksarben Smiles, our dental professionals will tailor their oral hygiene advice to suit your needs, and welcome your input.
Fillings Schedule an Appointment
Fillings are among the most frequently prescribed and versatile of all dental restorations. In a procedure known as cavity preparation, the dentist uses any of a variety of dental burs to remove damaged tooth structure, and any tooth material that has been weakened or undermined by decay. Applying their knowledge of ideal tooth shape (anatomy), dentists replace the missing tooth structure with filling material of various types.
Crowns Schedule an Appointment
A crown is essentially a cap that fits over the existing, problematic tooth. When in place, the crown looks like a completely healthy, natural tooth while covering and protecting troubled tooth. While there are occasionally crowns made from metals, most dental crowns today are made from porcelain or zirconia and porcelain. Both of these are tooth colored, and both are stronger than your tooth enamel.
Root Canals Schedule an Appointment
Root Canal Procedures
The space inside the tooth from the center, known as the pulp chamber, that travels down the length of the root to the tip (or apex) is called a “canal,” or more specifically, a root canal. Human teeth may have one to four root canals, depending on the anatomy of the tooth. If you need a root canal procedure, the soft tissue inside the pulp chamber is replaced with a dental material, thereby relieving you of discomfort and retaining your tooth.
Cold Sore Treatment Schedule an Appointment
Cold Sore Laser Treatment
We use a laser to encourage ultra-fast healing and to immediately stop the discomfort and development of a cold sore. If you suffer from embarrassing and painful cold sores around your lips or in your mouth, you can find the answer to your problem at our office. We have the technology to immediately destroy the cause of your outbreak and simultaneously take away the discomfort.
Teeth Whitening Schedule an Appointment
Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional take-home teeth whitening kits available from your dentist contain a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and provide excellent results in 1 to 2 weeks of prescribed use. Custom-fit trays keep the whitening solution on the surface of the tooth to be whitened. The trays will be useful for a long period of time as long as your dental condition remains the same.
Emergency Schedule an Appointment
Aksarben Smiles offers emergency dental care to our Omaha clients because we know that dental emergencies can happen at any time, and can be incredibly serious. That means our staff will do everything possible to see you as soon as possible and address your pain at that very appointment. Whether you have something as severe as a toothache or as simple as a chipped tooth, we will prioritize your needs and offer you treatment as soon as possible. We want our clients to feel as little discomfort as possible and want to ensure you are able to eat, speak, and smile with ease.
