Most general dentists are very good at what they do. Their job is to look after the overall oral health of their patients and provide care for a wide range of dental problems. It is also their responsibility to recognize when a patient’s condition merits a visit to someone who has specialized training in a particular area of dentistry, which may result in a referral to another practice. If you don’t like the idea of going somewhere else to get your teeth cared for, it may be a good idea for you to visit a dental office that has a range of specialists already on-staff, including an endodontist, periodontist, oral surgeon, and orthodontist in Montgomeryville.
Comprehensive, Focused Care
Many dentists say they provide “comprehensive care,” and perhaps they do offer a long list of services. They may have even attended several classes that equip them to go above and beyond the duties of basic dentistry. However, a true specialist hasn’t just spent a few days learning about complex dental problems and treatments; they have spent years studying the ins and outs of a particular area of dentistry.
When you visit a practice who has such specialists on-staff, you can be sure that you’re receiving the best care available for your unique oral health needs.
Types of Dental Specialties
The American Dental Association recognizes nine different dental specialties. At Dental Innovations, we have doctors on-staff who are certified in four of the most prominent of those specialties:
- Our endodontist in Montgomeryville, Dr. Schatz, treats problems that affect the pulp inside of a tooth. Endodontists are widely recognized for their ability to perform root canal therapy with precision and expertise, but they can also perform a range of other procedures.
- Our periodontist in Montgomeryville, Dr. Cruz, is a true gum guru. Her focus is on treating periodontal disease, but she can also perform cosmetic procedures to improve the way gums look.
- Our orthodontist, Dr. Foley, provides both traditional braces and Invisalign to patients who suffer from misaligned teeth.
- Our oral surgeon, Dr. Kurtzman, is able to perform complex tooth extractions and treat a variety of types of facial trauma.
All of our on-staff specialists communicate with each other, and with the general dentists in our practice, to design treatment plans that meet the highest standards of care possible. Of course, if they ever diagnose you with a dental problem that they feel would be better treated by a different type of specialist, they’ll frankly explain the situation to you and help you find someone who can provide the treatment you need.
Your smile deserves expert care! Consider entrusting your dental health to a practice that has a number of specialists who are qualified to give your teeth and gums the TLC they need.
