Professional Teeth Cleaning

It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.

Athletic Mouth Guards

If you or your child are involved in any type of sports, wearing a custom fitted athletic mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it also reduces the risk of concussion.

Gentle Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is a last resort, but sometimes becomes necessary. Dr. Bassett may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth is infected and can jeopardize the health of the rest of your mouth.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.

Fluoride Applications

Fluoride application can help remineralize weak areas of tooth enamel. This procedure can keep your teeth more resistant to the bacteria that can cause decay and cavities.

Oral Cancer Screening

Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise. That’s why at Ridgeview Dental, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.

Digital X-Rays

Dentist checking out x-rays to determine what treatments from the list of general dentistry services are needed. Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.

DIAGNOdent Cavity Detection

Dr. Bassett uses the latest technology in cavity detection to help identify problem areas in your mouth before they become bigger dental issues. Laser DIAGNOdent cavity detection pinpoints small areas of decay in your mouth before they’re visible during an exam or even on an x-ray.

3D CT Scanning

3D CT scanning provides us with extremely accurate three-dimensional replicas of your oral anatomy, which prove especially useful when planning for dental implants, root canals, or wisdom teeth treatments.
