Preventive and General Dentistry in Winchester, KY

Central Kentucky Dental provides a wide range of preventive dentistry services, including:

  • Dental checkups
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Digital x-rays
  • Professional teeth cleanings

Like the American Dental Association, our dentists in Winchester recommend dental exams and teeth cleanings every six months. This schedule has been shown to lower cavity and gum disease risks in most patients. 

For patients who are prone to cavities, we may also recommend a dental sealant or fluoride treatment to seal debris away from teeth and strengthen enamel, respectively. 

General dentistry is similar to preventive, but it deals with maintenance or restoring your oral health when an issue arises. Our general dentistry treatments include: 

  • Root canal therapy
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Tooth replacement
  • Cosmetic dentistry

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are a low-profile alternative to silver amalgam fillings and have become the industry standard. Tooth-colored fillings are color-matched to your teeth and blend in seamlessly. These modern fillings provide all the protection of a regular filling, without silver.

Our patients love that they can conceal their dental work with tooth-colored options while making sure their teeth are protected and taken care of.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is performed to save a root infected tooth. Unfortunately, this treatment has a bad reputation among some patients because they associate the pain of infection with the procedure itself.

The truth is root canal treatment is pain relieving because it addresses the source of the ache and removes it. Most patients feel immediately better post root canal, though recovery of one or two days is still required.

Restorations and Tooth Replacementgeneral dental check up in Winchester

Our smile restoration services can accomplish things that many of our patients never thought possible.

Dental crowns can support a damaged tooth and save it from extraction while concealing cosmetic flaws.

And tooth replacement, including the dental bridge, can restore your smile when teeth are missing. Replacing missing teeth is good for your self-esteem, and it also promotes better oral health by preventing tooth migration and wear on specific teeth.
