At Weeks Dentistry, we treat patients of all ages, and would love to help you and your entire family improve and maintain your oral health. We will provide you with a clear explanation of any procedures you may need, and will work closely with you and your family to improve your dental health in a personable and comfortable atmosphere.
Periodontal disease occurs when the tissues that support the teeth are infected. Left untreated, these diseases can lead to tooth loss. Following proper diagnosis, our dental hygienist will complete for you root planning treatment and will teach you proper techniques for maintaining great dental health.
Warning signs of periodontal disease include the following:
- Red, swollen or tender gums or other pain in your mouth
- Bleeding while brushing, flossing, or eating hard food
- Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, causing the teeth to look longer than before
- Loose or separating teeth
- Pus between your gums and teeth
- Sores in your mouth
- Persistent bad breath
- A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
- A change in the fit of partial dentures

Dentures and Partials
We will carefully exam your oral health for the treatment of a denture or removable partial denture. Dentures and partials are used to replace several or all of your missing teeth. If you’ve got one or more missing teeth, a denture or partial can make a world of difference in your smile. Dental implants are also a very effective way to fill in smile gaps! We specialize in Implant retained overdentures.
Occlusal Guards (Mouth Guards)
We offer several kinds of mouth guards. If clenching or grinding is a concern or issue, we will find a night guard that is right for your situation. We also offer sports mouth guards for all ages. Please do not hesitate to call us with further questions you may have about the services we provide.
Preventive dentistry can help prevent more costly procedures in the future. Our friendly and experienced staff will provide you or your family member with a thorough exam, digital x-rays, a cleaning, fluoride treatment, and we will screen for gum disease.
