Jordan Family Dentistry Dental Services
Are you looking for a trusted family dentist? Do you need a new crown, or are you considering a full mouth reconstruction? At Jordan Family Dentistry, we are pleased to accommodate our patients’ dental concerns and proudly provide comprehensive dental care in one comfortable location.
Dental hygiene comes from regular cleanings and is the best investment in your smile. A trusted dental hygienist will gently and thoroughly clean your teeth at your initial appointment and during regular six-month check-ups.
Cleanings help prevent cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and other conditions. A regular cleaning includes the removal of plaque, calculus, and stains from teeth using ultrasonic and hand instruments. A fluoride treatment will also be applied to maintain the benefits of each dental cleaning.
Our exceptional care, knowledgeable staff, and comfortable surroundings are just a few reasons why patients love us. Our hygienists perform thorough dental cleanings and teach you how to keep your smile healthy. Your dental cleaning appointment will typically include:
Removal of Plaque – When you eat, naturally occurring bacteria in your mouth produce acids that form plaque. This filmy substance coats the surfaces of your teeth, eventually dissolving the outer layer called enamel. Regular cleanings at home and the dentist can keep plaque from permanently damaging your teeth.
Tartar Removal – Tartar, also known as calculus, is a hardened plaque that is firmly attached to the tooth. This substance is above and below the gum line, and can only be removed at a dentist’s office.
Teeth Polishing – While a dental cleaning removes plaque and tartar from your teeth, polishing makes the surfaces of your teeth smooth. This technique removes the stains from substances like coffee, tea, and wine that build up over time.
Fluoride Treatment – Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque, bacteria, and sugars in the mouth. Fluoride will help re-mineralize teeth that have been affected by decay, stopping cavities from forming.
Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances forming in the teeth’s pockets. Removing this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training and can remove all the bacteria effectively.
For two to three days after the treatment, you may have some soreness and be sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate discomfort.
You may be asked to use an antiseptic mouth rinse after scaling and root planing. This is especially likely if your gums are very sore. However, you should continue brushing and flossing as usual. You can expect some minor bleeding in the first days after scaling and root planing. This usually stops within a week.
Most of your preventive dental care starts with you. Developing healthy dental
habits early in life can help reduce cavities, gum disease, and gingivitis.
3D & Digital X-Rays
To provide the best care for our patients, Dr. Sherrill Jordan has invested in the latest technology. For example, our 3D Planmeca ProMax® Cone Beam Scanner allows us to view implants’ critical anatomy, such as bone density, nerves, and sinuses. This allows Dr. Jordan to safely place implants with the correct size and precisely at the right location and angle. This revolutionary technology also allows us to avoid additional bone grafting procedures.
3D Cone Beam Imaging (“CBCT”) technology allows our practice to see detailed 3D images of your jaw, mouth, teeth, bone, and soft tissues. CBCT imaging is much more precise than traditional x-rays and gives the dentist a detailed view of your oral cavity.
SureSmile is transparent aligner therapy which gradually improves the
wearer’s appearance and function by applying consistent pressure to the
teeth. SureSmile uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gently move your
teeth until you get a straighter, more attractive-looking smile. Clear aligners
are popular since they can do many things traditional wire-and-bracket
orthodontics can, but more discreetly. SureSmile is a great way to help you maintain your current lifestyle and confidence.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars, and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth. More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy-to-clean surface.
Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years but must be checked for wear and chipping at regular dental visits.
Topical Fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay. We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels. Dr. Sherrill Jordan, and the dental hygienists, generally recommend that children have a professional application of fluoride twice a year during dental check-ups.
Systemic Fluoride strengthens the teeth that have erupted and developing under the gums. We gain systemic fluoride from most foods and our community water supplies. It is also available as a supplement in drop or gel form. Dr. Sherrill Jordan, or your physician, can prescribe it. Generally, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children through the teen years. It is essential to monitor the amount of fluoride a child ingests. If too much fluoride is consumed while the teeth are developing, fluorosis (white spots on the teeth) may result.

CEREC® one-visit crowns enhanced with CAD/CAM imaging allow our practice to create tooth-colored porcelain restorations for healthy beautiful smiles in a single appointment. Furthermore, the CEREC scanner doubles as a digital impression allowing us to get an accurate 3D impression of your teeth, including your jaw without the traditional messy goop used in the past. The digital impression gives us much more information and is more comfortable for you, our patients!
