Sealants & Fluoride Treatments

Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay & there are many ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can cover the deep grooves in your back teeth & extend their life while helping to prevent cavities.

Periodontal (Gum) Therapy

Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth & eventually, if left untreated, other more serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of the many effective restorative dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to its healthy, beautiful state. Let Dr. Camargo at Nature Coast Dentistry help you keep your teeth & gums strong & disease-free with regular examinations & cleanings.

Restorative Care

We offer state-of-the-art restorative care. We know that even when you do everything right, something can go wrong. If you are suffering from a dental problem, we are here to help. Modern technology, combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team, can assure you of a successful & long-lasting result.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a small channel inside your tooth that provides it with nutrients. If it becomes injured or infected, you may lose the tooth. At Nature Coast Dentistry, we can remedy the problem & restore the damaged tooth, while ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible during the entire procedure. Nowadays, thanks to modern dental advances & technology, root canals are relatively pain-free. Don’t suffer needlessly, call us today for an appointment.

Dentures

If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable, healthy life. Please call Nature Coast Dentistry today to discuss if dentures are the right option for you!

Dental Implants

Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Because implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

Mercury Amalgam (silver) fillings may be hazardous to your health. At Nature Coast Dentistry, we believe that the overall health of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new & advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our patients how much we care. Your safety & smile are our primary concerns!

Digital X-Rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great tool for patients who may be uneasy about their dental procedures. The beauty of laughing gas is that your dentist can constantly adjust your level of sedation during the procedure & once shut off, the effects stop almost immediately. A few minutes after the procedure is complete, you’ll be back to normal!

Nature Coast Dentistry is certified to administer nitrous oxide for nervous patients. Call today to schedule your appointment, or to see if you’re a candidate for nitrous oxide sedation!

Intraoral Camera

Ever been curious about what goes on during your dental care visits? With our intraoral cameras, you don´t have to be curious anymore! An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic & educational tool. This tiny device is a video camera that moves around inside the mouth & generates a tooth-by-tooth video exam of the teeth. With the images produced by the intraoral camera, patients can see each of their teeth & dentists can indicate problems such as broken teeth, plaque, decay, gum disease, defective fillings & so on. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees & then having it explained.
