General Dental Care
Keeping your teeth and gums clean and fresh is the best way to ensure long and successful oral health. The New England Dental Group offers a number of general and family dental care options that can help you maintain the health of your teeth and gums and prevent problems from occurring down the road. From routine oral exams and cleanings to root canal therapy and oral cancer screenings, our dentists offer a comprehensive array of treatment options to meet your needs.
Oral dental exams are the basis for your routine check-up and serve to identify problems or potential problems among your teeth and gums. Regular oral exams, recommended at least twice per year, can help to treat minor problems before they become major ones. They can go a long way in making sure you maintain great oral health and a beautiful smile.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a life-threatening condition that requires diagnosis and treatment as early as possible to reduce serious health risks. Our dentists use state-of-the-art technology to perform oral cancer screenings and identify any cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions in the mouth. Remember, early treatment is key to successfully overcoming oral cancer – and our dentists can give you an oral cancer screening as part of your routine check-up.
Family Dental Care
At the New England Dental Group, we welcome patients of all ages with treatments designed to maintain good dental health and address common problems with the teeth and gums. For children, we offer a variety of treatments and procedures that can help prevent future dental issues and keep their teeth healthy and bright. Our team also understands the anxieties and fears that can accompany a visit to the dentist, and we work to make sure that children have the most comfortable experience possible.
Good brushing and flossing habits are essential to maintaining the health of your teeth and gums; however, professional dental cleanings are also vital to staving off future dental problems and keeping your teeth fresh and clean. The New England Dental Group recommends at least two dental cleanings each year. We use only the most advanced dental technologies to ensure that your teeth cleanings are performed effectively and as comfortably as possible. Routine dental cleanings can also provide you with necessary education about ways you can improve your at-home dental routines.
Fluoride treatments today are just as important as they were back in elementary school. These quick, effective oral rinses help to prevent tooth decay and fight cavities, ultimately improving the chances that you can maintain healthy teeth for a very long time.
Sealants are preventive treatments designed to keep cavities and decay from affecting your teeth. These common dental procedures are affixed over the chewing surfaces of your rear teeth, helping to prevent bacteria from entering into crevices along the teeth and causing damage. Sealant treatments are typically performed for children, helping to keep harmful bacteria from the teeth for years to come.
The New England Dental Group places a very high emphasis on state-of-the-art processes to control infection and ensure that you undergo a clean and sterilized treatment. We use disposable instruments when possible, and our non-disposable instruments are carefully cleaned, disinfected, and sterilized after each use. We also pride ourselves on keeping the office and treatment room environments clean and disinfected for each patient, and all of our dental professionals practice the highest safety standards when caring for our patients. Our goal is to offer you the safest treatment possible.
Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
Teeth that are in severe states of decay due to injury, fracture, gum disease, or other issues, may need a root canal in order to save the tooth from extraction. Endodontics (root canal therapy) is a specialized area of dentistry which treats these types of dental problems with the ultimate goal of saving your tooth and preventing even worse health problems that can be caused by severe tooth decay and infection.
Dental emergencies such as tooth injury, severe pain, and other issues can be addressed swiftly by our team here at the New England Dental Group. We have an on-call support team for our offices in both Marlborough and Southborough who can help you in the event of a dental emergency. Please call 888-495-7733 if you feel you need immediate treatment.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a commonly performed non-surgical procedure that removes pockets of bacteria in the mouth to improve the condition of the gums. Our team at the New England Dental Group will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and remove tartar and plaque to prevent any infection from getting worse. This can be a very effective treatment for gum disease, and ultimately helps the gum tissue heal.
Our practice offers an array of effective treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, to address periodontal issues and gum disease. Conditions of the gums are very common and can cause severe damage to the gums and teeth. Periodontal treatment is often essential to ensure prevention of further problems and to maintain healthy gums.
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders occur along the jawline and can cause a number of debilitating symptoms, including headaches, malfunctioning jaws, teeth clenching and grinding, and other issues. The New England Dental Group offers a number of treatments that can address this common condition.
