Adult Specialist Dentistry
Mountain West Dental Group offers a wide range of services for your entire family. Call us to inquire about specialized dentistry for adults, including cosmetic and restorative dental services.
Our staff is steadily expanding with dentists who have advanced degrees and specialty licenses in:
An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canals. These specialized doctors receive additional training to treat dental pulp and nerves, and for root canals in adults, an endodontist can provide more specialized treatment.
Most dentists can perform basic root canals without having those additional years of training, but endodontists are the best choice for treatment on molars. Mountain West Dental Group will make sure you understand all your treatment options before you have to make a decision.
Periodontists specialize in treatment of your gums and the tissues that surround and support your teeth. You might see a periodontist for treatment of oral inflammation, diagnosis of a gum disease, or placement of dental implants.
Pro tip: brushing and flossing regularly and correctly is key to keeping your gums healthy. Gum disease affects many adults, and if you notice any symptoms like redness, inflammation, or sore gums, call Mountain West Dental Group right away.
When you need help with dentures, veneers, bridges, or other dental substitutes, you’ll probably talk to a prosthodontist.
Prosthodontists deal with the function, health, and maintenance of biocompatible dental substitutes that restore missing jaw and tooth structures. This specialized dental treatment can even help with your face and jaw structure.
Oral surgeons are necessary for lots of different kinds of operations, including:
- Wisdom tooth removal
- Cleft palate and lip repair
- Dental implants
- Facial reconstruction
- Treatment of injuries
- Maxillofacial regeneration
These specialized treatments require highly specialized professionals. The staff at Mountain West Dental Group will take great care of you before, during, and after any oral surgeries you may need.
