Dental Care that will Leave You Smiling

At David C. Frost, D.M.D., we provide our patients with a range of general and cosmetic dental services. Dr. Frost has the skills and knowledge necessary to provide every patient with the care they need. With a warm and welcoming environment, our patients feel comfortable and can ask any questions they may have about their dental treatments.

Services we offer include, but are not limited to:



Routine Dental Cleaning

It is suggested that patients should be seen for a dental cleaning and routine exam every 6 months or as recommended by Dr. Frost. During the cleaning, plaque and calculus will be removed from your teeth leaving behind a bright and polished smile. X-rays may need to be taken to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye, monitor jaw bone health and detect or rule out any other pathology.

Periodontal Services

Though your mouth may feel healthy and you may not have any symptoms, periodontal disease can progress without a patient knowing. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause bone loss and eventual tooth loss. This is why early treatment and prevention is so important! Dr. Frost and his staff will make sure you are receiving the highest quality of care that will assist in preventing periodontal disease from developing.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services that allow our patients to achieve the smile they have always dreamed about. We are able to reshape your teeth in a variety of ways; including the use of veneers, crowns and natural-looking tooth-colored fillings.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation substantially as compared to already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Dental x-rays are essential, preventive, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Sealants

Sealants are a very efficient and successful method for preventing decay on the biting surfaces of teeth. They are primarily placed on the permanent molars as they erupt in a child’s mouth. The sealants are maintained throughout childhood and can last well into adulthood. Sealants are made of a flowable resin that is applied to the deep pits and fissures of teeth protecting them from harmful acids and plaque build up commonly found in the mouth. The application of sealants is a simple procedure requiring a short appointment and are proven to be effective in preventing decay in children.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and esthetics. Several crown material options are available including non-metal crowns. Dr. Frost will discuss these on an individual basis depending on the area of the mouth that needs to be restored.

Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of the tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and can look unsightly. With bridges, your dentist will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.

Composite Filling

When a tooth is affected by decay, fractures, or cracks, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth. In a single dental appointment, the decayed or injured tooth structure will be removed, cleaned, and filled. Composite fillings can be matched to the color of your existing tooth. Since the color is the same as your original tooth, the filling will look aesthetically pleasing and restore your teeth to a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time the patient will go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Teeth Whitening

After receiving teeth whitening from Dr. Frost, you will begin to notice your smile getting whiter and brighter. With our quality teeth brightening services, your discoloration will begin to fade, leaving behind a brighter smile. If you are considering teeth whitening for your smile, reach out to us so we can schedule a consultation with you and Dr. Frost to see if you are a good candidate.

Implant Restoration

When it comes to the treatment planning and restoration of implants, our team is the one to trust to get the job done right and help maintain your beautiful smile. At the office of David C. Frost, D.M.D., our team will follow a treatment plan, coordinate with the oral surgeon on implant placement, and restore your dental implant which allows us to replace many teeth or dentures. The dental implant is a permanent solution that looks and acts just like a natural tooth.

TMJ Therapy

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) reside in front of your ears and play a crucial role in healthy, pain-free jaw motion. When impacted by stress, a misaligned bite, trauma, or a variety of other factors, these joints and associated muscles can malfunction and cause discomfort that disrupts your daily activities. This is referred to as temporalmandibular disfuction or TMD. Dr. Frost treats TMD-related pain with non-invasive therapies that restore comfortable jaw motion and healthy oral function.

TMD Symptoms

Studies indicate that 10 million Americans experience TMJ distress at any given time. The symptoms range in severity and can include:

  • A jaw that clicks or pops
  • Inability to fully open or close your mouth and/ tight jaw muscles
  • Chronic headaches, including migraines
  • Chronic earaches
  • Tingling in the hands and fingers
  • Unexplained facial, neck, jaw, or shoulder pain

As our patient, you’ll receive a comprehensive assessment of your TMJ function. Dr. Frost is highly trained and experienced in diagnosing and treating TMD disorder, and offers non-surgical therapies to eliminate pain and renew healthy function.
