Dr. Jessica Johnson offers her patients a wide range of procedures at our West Des Moines, IA dental office. Our focus is on patient education and preventive treatments, the idea being that a well-informed patient is equipped to be a healthy patient. We prefer to work with you to prevent dental issues before they require serious and costly reparative work.
During your exam, we will use advanced digital diagnostics to reveal issues that require further attention. The doctor will complete your cleaning herself, using ultrasonic scaling equipment that is less irritating to the gums and to the patient. We also offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants to strengthen tooth enamel and biting surfaces against decay.
For our smallest patients, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments. These services provide additional insurance against tooth decay, as children are often unreliable when it comes to keeping up with their oral hygiene regimen.
Your exam may reveal that you grind your teeth, a condition called bruxism. If you suffer from this subconscious and destructive habit, Dr. Johnson can fit you with a custom appliance to wear at night to protect your teeth.
If you are worried about the health of your smile, your West Des Moines dentist has the skill and expertise to restore damaged teeth with fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy. With training in endodontics, Dr. Johnson has experience in treating all levels of dental decay, including internal tooth infections.
In some cases, however, a tooth may not be stable enough to remain in the mouth. In that case, Dr. Johnson will perform an extraction. We offer excellent replacement teeth, such as: implants, bridges, and both partial and full dentures.
If your concerns are more cosmetic than restorative, your dentist in West Des Moines may recommend cosmetic procedures. Perhaps you have a serious coffee habit that has left your teeth stained, or you were unlucky in a game of hockey and chipped a tooth. Valley Ridge Family Dental can put your smile back in order with teeth whitening, bonding, tooth contouring, or veneers.
