General & Preventive Dental Treatment Options
Prevention is a crucial part of maintaining a happy, healthy smile for life. By catching potential issues at the earliest possible stages and undergoing thorough, revitalizing treatment, patients can be sure to have the protection and understanding they need to keep their oral health strong. Here in Wichita, Dr. Ernie Belen and Dr. Mary Ann Chang want to be that vital support system for you and your family. We offer several comprehensive general and family dentistry services that are designed to give your smile the quality care and personalized attention it deserves.
Oral Examination & Cleaning
By performing a complete evaluation of your current oral health every six months, our team can ensure that your smile is staying healthy and no potential issues are forming that an untrained eye may not be able to see. With the help of digital X-rays and other state-of-the-art technology, we’ll carefully inspect each aspect of your smile, including teeth, gums, jawbone, soft tissue, and more. We’ll even provide you with a screening for oral cancer, which is a potentially destructive condition that can wreak havoc on your health if left unnoticed for too long. You’ll also undergo an in-depth hygiene appointment with one of our trusted team members, leaving your smile polished and refreshed. Your well-being is always our top priority here in Wichita, which is why we work hard to give you a feeling of ease and confidence that lasts long after you’ve left our office.
Treatment of Early to Advanced Gum Disease
Gum disease (also referred to as periodontal disease) is the most common oral health problem today, affecting over 75% of adults in the Unites States, and if left untreated for too long, it can begin to cause potentially serious problems for your smile. Thankfully, our team can help. Once we’ve diagnosed whether you’re suffering from gum disease and the level of severity you’re facing (whether it be mild, moderate, or severe), we can prescribe a variety of personalized treatment options, including scaling and root planing, gingivectomy, osseous surgery, bone grafting, gum grafting, surgical crown lengthening, and more.
Other general services we offer include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Pediatric Dentistry
- Bite Analysis/Adjustment
- Nightguard/TMD Appliances
