What Can General Dentistry At Burke Dental Offer Me?
General dental procedures vary by type but tend to be the services most often needed or asked about by our patients. While we always prefer to catch a problem early before it has time to progress, and we heavily promote preventative dentistry as the best approach to oral health care, problems can still occur. Burke Dental’s general dental procedures mainly aim to fix problems that already exist. General dental services include:

Root canals may be required or suggested for a number of reasons including advanced decay or serious damage to a tooth. A root canal is performed by cleaning out the inside of the tooth to remove an infection that can potentially spread to other parts of the mouth or body. Root canals are most often performed because unchecked decay has deeply affected a tooth or teeth and has led to infection and damage inside or beyond the tooth.
Patients never like to hear the words “root canal” when they come to the dentist, but at Burke Dental, we make sure to offer the gentlest care, especially when it comes to potentially painful procedures. When done correctly, root canals do not need to be feared. Under Dr. Willis’ expert care, any discomfort resulting from this procedure will be greatly minimized. Individual cases can always vary, but most patients can expect about the same level of discomfort experienced during a routine filling.
As we age, our teeth may cause us different problems throughout our lives that can eventually sometimes culminate in the need for dentures. Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace natural teeth that require extraction. In every case, we always want to prevent the removal of any natural teeth when possible, but when dentures become a necessity, we still have great options to give you back your beautiful smile.
In terms of removable dentures, there is some choice and you can discuss the best course of action for your needs with Dr. James Willis and his team of dental professionals at Burke Dental. We offer two kinds of full dentures and when a full set is unnecessary, we can employ the use of a partial denture to replace lost or extracted teeth.
Fillings for Cavities and Other Damage
The need for fillings is incredibly common, even sometimes among patients with the best of oral hygiene routines. Fillings are a type of restoration dentistry that literally fills in a problem area so that the tooth is again fully functional and protected from further complication.
Fillings are often used to aid in the damage done from decay but can also help to fix cracks, gaps, and general wear and tear on the teeth. There are a few different types of fillings that vary based on composition and Dr. Willis will be able to discuss the best option for your individual needs.
Pediatric General Dentistry for Kids
Getting our kids to the dentist early on to learn great oral health habits is key to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Regular exams, cleanings, and fluoride treatments for children can ensure they transition to strong, healthy adult teeth. Dr. James Willis and the staff at Burke Dental can also assist you in teaching correct oral health care and the importance of preventative dentistry and
Visiting the dentist can be scary for some children, but having a caring, gentle dentist who understands kids can make all the difference in the world. We want to make sure our youngest patients are at ease and free of discomfort when they visit us at Burke Dental. Dr. Willis is mindful of the extra special care required for the little ones and is sure to have them out the door with big, healthy smiles.
