If you’re in need of a family dentist who provides highly-skilled and gentle care, backed by 34 years of experience, then call us and schedule an appointment with our Homestead dentist. Whether it’s a dental exam, a toothache, tooth replacement, gum treatment, or cosmetic work, you call feel completely confident in Dr. Cuckler and our staff. Here, you are treated as the unique individual that you are, not like a number. It’s our goal to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong and that your smile looks great.
Prevention is the cornerstone of a sound strategy of dental well-being. Our Homestead dentist recommends twice-yearly visits to our office for a full dental exam, x-rays, and teeth cleaning. In addition, Dr. Cuckler will perform a periodontal examination to check the condition of your gums, analyze your occlusion (bite), and also screen you for oral cancer. Early detection is the next best thing to prevention, after all. If you do have a cavity, we offer fillings that are strong and durable as well as matching the color of your teeth. Should any signs of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, be found, action will be taken to stop it in its tracks with a teeth cleaning or two. Your gums are a sometimes overlooked component of your oral health, but not here. Gums that are vibrant make a stable foundation for your teeth.
A great smile is one that you’re happy with when you look in the mirror. If your teeth are not the color you prefer, take advantage of our teeth whitening service. Crowns, also made with tooth-colored materials, are versatile restorations. They can save a cracked tooth from extraction or a discolored tooth from marring your appearance. Among their other uses are acting as the tooth portion of a dental implant. Along with bridges and dentures, implants complete your smile, saving you from the cosmetic disadvantage of missing teeth, not to mention keeping your other teeth from shifting. And while everything possible will be done to prevent it, if you do have an infection in a tooth and root canal treatment becomes necessary, you can rest assured that our Homestead dentist will perform it with a minimum of discomfort for you.
