Why Choose Us as Your Dentist in Midland?
Why should you choose us as your dentist in Midland? We’re conveniently located right on Wackerly Street, making our office simple and easy to reach. Our team is also dedicated to providing an outstanding patient experience during every visit. Whether it’s your first time or if you’re a regular, we deliver the high level of patient care that you deserve.
We remain committed to providing patient education, as well, and will be happy to provide you with as much information as necessary about our services, oral health conditions and treatments, and more. Finally, we focus on how your oral health affects the health of your entire body, with treatments that go beyond basic cleanings or teeth whitening.
The Impact of Oral Health on Overall Health
At our office, we focus on providing our patients with access to vital general dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments. Good oral health is important not just for a confident smile, but also because it affects other aspects of health. The right dentist in Midland will help ensure that your overall health is not negatively affected by oral health conditions. We can help patients overcome or avoid common problems linked to poor oral health, such as the following:
● Cardiovascular Disease: Heart disease is linked to inflammation and infections caused by bacteria originating in the mouth.
● Pneumonia and Respiratory Health: The bacteria in your mouth can invade your lungs, causing respiratory diseases like pneumonia.
● Endocarditis: Bacteria from the mouth can spread through your bloodstream and attach to the heart chamber and valves.
● Premature Birth: Birth weight and even premature birth can be affected by periodontitis.
The Impact of Other Health Conditions on Oral Health
Just as your oral health can affect other parts of your body, so other diseases can affect your oral health. As your dentist in Midland, we help ensure that you do not suffer from a broad range of complications, including the following:
● Periodontal Bone Loss and Tooth Loss: As we age, our bones can become weaker. Osteoporosis can affect jaw bone health and even lead to tooth loss. Likewise, some of the drugs used to treat this condition can also affect the jaw.
● Gum Disease: Patients with diabetes are at an increased risk for developing gum disease because of lowered immune system function. Gum disease also hinders blood sugar control, exacerbating your condition.
● Additional Health Complications: As a dentist in Midland, our office has seen patients suffering from a wide range of health conditions either amplified by oral health problems, or that impact oral health, such as dementia-related oral health neglect.
Going Beyond the Basics
Many of our patients choose us as their dentist in Midland for convenient access to our office when they require regular cleanings and checkups. We’re happy to offer those services – regular cleanings help to maintain a bright, confident smile and avoid potentially serious oral health problems. However, our experienced team can go far beyond the basics.
In addition to general dentistry, we also provide oral surgery to remove wisdom teeth, implants to support bridges and crowns, the creation of full or partial dentures, and more. We can offer cosmetic dentistry options as well, including the availability of teeth whitening kits. From straightening crooked teeth to sealing porous teeth to prevent decay and staining, we are committed to delivering the widest range of essential dental services to all of our patients in and around Midland, MI.
Putting Your Mind at Ease
We understand that many of our patients are nervous about getting into the dentist’s chair. As your dentist in Midland, we can offer sedation dentistry to ensure that you’re able to get the treatment you need without all the stress that usually accompanies a trip to the dentist. We can provide nitrous oxide to help alleviate anxiety and ensure that your treatment goes smoothly.
Earning Your Trust
When you choose the office of Mark G. Cadotte, D.D.S., as your dentist in Midland, you are trusting us with your care. That means a great deal to us. We strive to do everything possible to treat you and your family with respect and courtesy, while providing you with the education necessary to understand not just your oral health conditions, but how our treatments can help you achieve the bright, healthy smile you deserve.
Our Range of Services
Preventative Care: Preventative care is a vital consideration for protecting your teeth and gums. From removing plaque and tartar to assessing the health of individual teeth and your entire mouth, preventative care treatments help your smile remain bright and bold. We also use this opportunity to assess other aspects of your health, including your diet, your oral care product use, and other steps necessary to help you create and maintain a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
Implants: Dental implants deliver stability and firmly anchor a wide range of dental appliances in place within your mouth. We recommend dental implants for use with crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures, and more. Highly biocompatible, these titanium implants fuse with the bone itself, providing a permanent anchor and improving everything from your ability to eat to your ability to communicate. We can offer implants for a single tooth, multiple teeth, and full denture implants.
Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth are remnants of our distant past – another set of adult molars that usually erupts during our teen years. However, there is usually little or no space in the mouth for wisdom teeth, causing problems like overcrowding, or a wisdom tooth might impact another tooth, pushing it out of place. Even with ample room, wisdom teeth can recede and erupt again, or may erupt in a prone position, and cause other problems. We can offer wisdom tooth extraction right in our Midland office.
Cosmetic Bonding: Many of us are dissatisfied with the color or appearance of our teeth, even if they are healthy overall. Cosmetic bonding allows us to help you achieve your goals in terms of tooth color and shape. You can smile with confidence knowing that your teeth look great. Cosmetic bonding can include a wide range of materials, as well, such as porcelain and resin. We can offer help for those with discolored teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and more.
Teeth Whitening Kits Available: Looking to get a bright, white smile? Our teeth whitening kits are the solution you need. We can offer teeth whitening trays, as well as more advanced kits that help you maintain the color of your teeth at home. In addition to teeth whitening, our expert team can help you understand and avoid things that can discolor your teeth, such as tobacco, coffee and tea, red wine, and more.
Sealants: Brushing and flossing help you keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. However, cleaning some areas of the mouth can be very challenging. Sealants help prevent decay in these areas. We can offer advanced sealant formulas to help coat chewing surfaces and prevent stains from penetrating, as well as ensuring that decay does not set in. We can offer sealants for both adults and children to help reduce cavities.
Periodontal Care: Our periodontal care services are designed to help you keep your gums healthy and well, while avoiding gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, and even blood infections. If your gums bleed easily, are red and inflamed, or are receding, our periodontal care service can help.
Root Canals: Tooth decay does not necessarily mean that you will lose a tooth. Modern root canal procedures can help save that tooth, even if the pulp and root are infected. Today’s root canals are virtually pain free and very fast, ensuring that you can address your pain while saving a tooth. We also offer state of the art caps and can assess whether your tooth is strong enough to support a cap after the root canal.
Clear Aligners for Teeth Straightening: Struggling with misaligned teeth? Perhaps you’re thinking about braces for your child. While traditional metal braces are certainly still available, we can offer clear aligners to straighten your teeth without the visibility or discomfort of metal braces. Clear aligners gently guide your teeth into the correct position while being removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease.
Other Services Offered: We’re proud to offer a full range of essential services to help support your oral health and well-being. In addition to the services listed above, we can also offer root planing and scaling, install custom veneers and bridges, create full and partial dentures, support jaw health with bone grafts, and even offer Botox for migraines and treating TMJ disorder.
