Common Procedures

Whether you need a root canal or just a small cavity treatment, our team has the experience needed to get your oral health back on track. We'll help keep you comfortable while providing the quality care you need for oral health. That is why many people have chosen us as their dentist in Blue Springs and surrounding areas.

Preventive Care

The best way to protect your teeth from damage and decay is active prevention. Regular cleanings and fluoride treatments can fight decay and cavities before they seriously damage your teeth. We also provide dental sealant treatments and mouth guards to help protect your teeth from some of the most common sources of damage and wear.

Oral Cancer Screenings

We understand that the health of your mouth is connected to the health of your whole body. We'll keep an eye out for any sign of health problems--not just those that affect your teeth. You can expect an oral cancer screening each time you come in for a checkup, so that we can catch any problems early.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are a revolutionary technique that allows us to take an x-ray image with an electronic sensor instead of film. The pictures are imported directly to a computer, allowing us to diagnose problems earlier and more accurately than ever before. Not only are digital X-rays better for your teeth, but they are better for your entire body. Digital imaging allows us to reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%.

Laser Dentistry

Although lasers have been used as a dentistal tool for years, many people still don't know the benefits of laser dentistry. Laser dentistry can make cavity treatment more comfortable than ever before, and to contour gum lines and treat oral infections with precision. You'll love the accuracy and quick recovery time laser treatment provides.

"The Wand" Single Tooth Anesthesia

Our team of doctors and professionals uses every technique possible to keep patients comfortable during their visit. One method for helping patients that usually struggle with oral treatment visits is the Wand STA system. This special tool allows us to more precisely numb individual teeth, eliminating the discomfort of traditional injections and the period of full-mouth numbness that used to accompany treatment.

Snoring Prevention

Almost half of Americans snore at night, causing both them and their loved ones to lose sleep. However, snoring can be a sign of a bigger problem: sleep apnea. We help our snoring patients to understand the root of the problem and to find the right solutions for their unique situation.

Dental Sealants

The most common place to develop cavities is in the chewing surfaces of your molars, where natural pits and crevices trap food and bacteria. To prevent this, we offer dental sealants to protect your teeth.

Wisdom Teeth

Third molars, or wisdom teeth, will usually emerge in your late teens or early twenties. While it is possible for them to come in without incident, problems with the wisdom teeth are common, and extraction is often the best choice for your health.

Emergency Dental Care

Everyone should have a dentist they can call for emergency dental care. Quick access to professional help is the most important factor in recovery after an oral accident. That's why each of our doctors provides an after-hours emergency number. With Dental Excellence, you're sure to find the help that you need. If you need an emergency dentist in Independence, contact us today.
