It can be intimidating to go to another practitioner for work outside of the office. At Glasscock Family Dentistry, we make it more convenient and comfortable for you with multiple speciality services under one roof. Some cases involve going to a specialist, and although we may still refer you out, our advancements allow you to stay in the comfort of our care.
ClearCorrect (Clear Aligners)
Clear Orthodontic Aligners are used to treat all types of patients, from adults to young teens. They are used to realign the teeth into a more natural position. They can also be used to straighten teeth in order to correct any imbalance in the bite.
Dr. Glasscock has chosen ClearCorrect aligners for use at Glasscock Family Dentistry. ClearCorrect aligners are fabricated solely within the United States and are generally available for a lower cost than other aligner systems. Watch the video above to see how ClearCorrect can help you have a straighter, healthier smile, or give us a call at 615-371-8009 to learn more!
BOTOX® is a protein injection used to treat wrinkles and facial creases. It also can treat severe headaches and TMJ. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines.
Root canals get a bad rap. But don’t believe the rumors; the dreaded root canal isn’t dreadful at all! Root canals are needed when either decay or an injury infects the nerve of your tooth. In the earliest stages of infection, you may not feel any pain at all. However, when it progresses, you could have a toothache and swelling, or a dental abscess might form. Root canals remove the infection and prevent it from spreading. Pulp capping is an alternative to root canals that is used when the infection has yet to penetrate the pulp. Pulp capping can also prevent a large dental filling from getting too close to the nerve.
If you are missing teeth, there’s no need to worry. Our practice offers treatment by way of dental implants. Dental implants are exactly what they sound like: an artificial tooth (or teeth) are held in place in your mouth by an anchor which is implanted into the upper or lower jaw. With proper care, implants can last a very long time. If you are missing a tooth or two (or more!) and want to make a change, we would be happy to talk about what we can do for you.
