General Dentist Services

At Mission Dental, we offer a complete set of general dentist services for routine dental care. These dental services include teeth cleaning, exams, x rays; fillings, dental crowns, and implants; root canals and tooth extractions. Each of these is described below.


Routine exams, teeth cleaning, and x-rays:

These services are the most common reasons that people look for a family dentist – someone who can provide the routine checkups and teeth cleaning, and determine the best regimen for each patient’s own individualized dental health. Some people get teeth cleaning every 6 months, some every 4 months; with dental x rays once per year. We will put together a plan that makes sense for you. We use the latest techniques to make you comfortable: fast, efficient teeth cleaning techniques, and digital x rays that provide a detailed look at every tooth, with less radiation than conventional x rays.



Our family dentists have a gentle touch, and we offer sedation dentistry as an option for those who prefer it. When fillings are required, we try to make the process as painless and quick as possible. We offer composite and porcelain for filling material, to blend in with the natural color of your teeth.


Dental Crowns:

Dental crowns require precision as well as an artistic touch. The fit must be correct to preserve and maintain the bite, and they need to blend in with the surrounding teeth with regard to shape, contour and color. Our family dentists are experts in designing beautiful and functional crowns to keep your bite perfect. We also offer specialized crowns; visit our cosmetic dentistry page for more information.


Root Canal:

The phrase “root canals” engenders fear among most patients. However, the root canal process has changed greatly in the last decade due to diagnostic tools and technologies. Procedures now take less time, and they are quite painless. The family dentists at Mission Dental are qualified to do root canals, and have the right technology to make this a pain-free experience.


Tooth Extractions:

Sometimes teeth need to be extracted, due to decay, injury, or in preparation for orthodontia. Mission Dental’s family dentists have the specialized training required to do tooth extraction, and take the time to make the patient feel at ease not only during the procedure, but also afterward. It’s a little unsettling to suddenly have a tooth removed from your mouth, but our dentists will answer all of your questions about what happens after that, and will develop a plan
with you for putting your smile back together again.
