Services we offer include, but are not limited to:

Routine Dental Cleaning

Patients should be seen for a dental cleaning and routine exam every 6 months or as recommended by your dentist. During the cleaning, plaque and calculus will be removed from your teeth, leaving behind a bright and polished smile. X-rays may need to be taken to view the bone below the gums and to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Periodontal Services

Though your mouth may feel healthy and you may not have any symptoms, periodontal disease can progress without a patient knowing. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the supporting bones in your mouth. This is why early treatment and prevention is so important! Your dentist will make sure you are receiving the highest quality of care that will assist in preventing periodontal disease from developing.

Digital X-rays

Dental x-rays are a great preventive, diagnostic tool that provides important information not visible during a regular dental exam. Our dental team will utilize this important information to safely and accurately detect any dental abnormalities and then create an accurate treatment plan that is specific to your needs.

Sealants

Sealants are a very efficient and successful method for preventing decay on the biting surfaces of teeth. They are primarily placed on the permanent molars as they erupt in a child’s mouth. The sealants are maintained through out childhood and can last well into adulthood. Sealants are made of a flowable resin that is applied to the deep pits and fissures of teeth protecting them from harmful acids and plaque build up commonly found in the mouth. The application of sealants is a simple procedure requiring a short appointment and are proven to be effective in preventing decay in children.

Composite Filling

When a tooth is affected by decay, fractures, or cracks, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth. In a single dental appointment, the decayed or injured tooth will be removed, cleaned, and filled. Composite fillings can be matched to the color of your existing tooth. Since the color is the same as your original tooth, the filling will look aesthetically pleasing and restore your teeth to a healthy, beautiful smile.

Amalgam Fillings

If your tooth has been affected by decay, fractures, or cracks, a silver amalgam filling might be an option. Your dentist will remove the decay and affected part of your tooth and then fill it with a silver filling. Generally, amalgam fillings tend to be stronger than resin-based composite “white fillings”. Your dentist will take time to discuss with you your options, and together you will make an educated discussion on which filling material to use.

Teeth Whitening

After receiving teeth whitening from Champlin Family Dental, you will begin to notice your smile getting whiter and brighter. With our quality teeth whitening services, the staining from coffee, tea, and smoking will begin to fade, leaving behind a white smile. If you are considering teeth whitening for your smile, reach out to us so we can schedule a consultation with you to see if you are a good candidate.

Extractions

When permanent teeth are significantly damaged, extracting the compromised teeth can, in some cases, help you return to optimal oral health. Orthodontists may require healthy teeth to be extracted to create more space in the mouth. In some circumstances, we may refer you to an oral surgeon to have more complex procedures completed.

Following the extraction, it is important to replace the tooth to prevent problems with the surrounding teeth. You can discuss your tooth replacement options with your dentist during your initial consultation.

Crowns & Bridges

When a patient has a tooth that has been severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and the tooth can no longer be saved with bonded filling material, then a crown is necessary. Crowns are designed to cover the patient's remaining tooth and restore it back to a normal, esthetically pleasing smile. There are a variety of options for crown material, including non-metal crowns. Your dentist will discuss your options one-on-one with you should you need to receive a crown

When tooth loss happens due to gum disease, decay, or injury, bridges become necessary. If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, it is important that you get it corrected to avoid the remaining teeth from shifting in your mouth. If the remaining teeth begin to move it can cause pain and discomfort. Bridges completed by your dentist will look and act like natural teeth and are permanently cemented into the mouth. The bridge restoration will also help keep the other teeth from shifting.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed or if there is an existing ill-fitting existing denture. A conventional denture can be fabricated within 4-6 weeks. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored coverings that your dentist uses to improve the appearance of your smile. Your dentist will bond the veneers to the surfaces of the teeth to correct certain dental flaws. Your porcelain veneers are customized for a perfect fit and natural appearance. When in place, porcelain veneers can:

  •  Close spaces between the teeth

  •  Lighten and brighten the teeth

  •  Improve the beauty of your smile

  •  Repair chips, wear, or cracks in teeth

  •  Correct teeth that are misshapen, crooked, or uneven

The procedure usually requires two visits to our office to complete. When your veneers are in place, you can enjoy a radiant new smile.

ClearCorrect®

ClearCorrect is the clear and simple alternative to braces.

ClearCorrect, similar to Invisalign, involves a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, each aligner moving your teeth just a little bit at a time. They're practically invisible, so most people won't even know you're in treatment; they fit you perfectly, so they're more comfortable than regular braces, and they're removable, so you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally. Ask your dentist for more information about ClearCorrect at your next appointment and learn what it can do for you!

Nightguard

If you are someone that suffers from clenching or grinding their teeth at night, there is something you can do to prevent hurting your teeth, muscles, and joints while you sleep. Our staff at Champlin Family Dental can create a custom nightguard that you wear while you sleep that are designed to alleviate pain. Many people find relief from tooth, jaw, or facial pain and it is especially recommended for those with crowns.

Mini Dental Implants (3M ESPE Mini-Implants)

Mini dental implants are like regular implants, just smaller in size. When a mouth has inadequate bone structure for regular sized implants, our dentists might consider the use of mini dental implants. Mini dental implants do not require multiple dental visits or the need for surgery. The implants are anchored into the jaw during 1 easy, noninvasive treatment session. Mini dental implants are often used to support lower dentures or overdentures.

Mini dental implants were designed to eliminate the need for grafting and shorten recovery time. Full dental implants involve intensive bone grafting and longer recovery time. The lengthy recovery time comes from waiting for the implant to properly imbed itself into the patient's jawbone. But with mini dental implants having no recovery period, the patient's dentures can be properly fitted during the same appointment.

Advantages with mini dental implants include:

  •  Better denture fit

  •  Easier cleaning

  •  No cutting or sutures needed when placed

  •  Easier chewing and biting for the patient

  •  Less discomfort

  •  Clearer speech

  •  No slipping or wobbling of dentures

  •  Reduced costs
