General Dentistry at Hannibal Dental Group
At Hannibal Dental Group, you will receive a comprehensive dental cleaning and examination. Our goal is to identify small problems before they turn into big problems. Your comprehensive visit will include a gentle polishing as well as a thorough oral cleaning and oral cancer screening.
We also offer an electric toothbrush that is not sold in stores and only available via your dental professional. The Oral B Genius is Bluetooth-smart and costs $99, plus tax. This is after a $20 rebate, making the cost significantly less than a comparable one sold in retail stores for $179.
Accidents happen. And Hannibal Dental Group can handle your dental emergency immediately. If you or your child has chipped, broken, or cracked a tooth; had a tooth knocked out; or you have a toothache that you simply cannot ignore anymore, we will schedule a same-day appointment with one of our dentists.
Our emergency dental services include fixing chipped, broken, cracked, or lost teeth; performing an emergency tooth extraction or root canal; and replacing a crown that has come loose or a filling that has fallen out.
X-rays are necessary to allow your dentist to see the condition of your teeth below the gum line. Digital X-rays are beneficial to you and your dentist. With up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, digital radiography uses a small sensor placed in the mouth to take and relay X-rays directly to a computer.
This process is also better for the environment. It doesn’t use photochemicals and traditional film, thus eliminating waste. We still take safety precautions and cover your body with a lead apron to minimize radiation exposure to your body. Let us know if you are pregnant or suspect that you may be pregnant prior to receiving X-rays.
Intraoral cameras are advanced cameras that let you see what we see during an exam and allow us to provide a more accurate diagnosis.
Advances in dentistry have made fillings less obvious than ever before. New and old fillings can now match your natural teeth for a beautiful smile free of silver-mercury amalgam. Tooth-colored fillings are more resilient and can last years longer than traditional metal fillings.
Patients and dentists alike are singing the praises of an innovative replacement for the traditional dental drill: a virtually painless dental laser. It can be used for everything from simple cavities to complex surgeries.
Having dental procedures performed with a dental laser is such a unique experience – and it’s a real game changer when it comes to patient expectations about dental work. In fact, many of our patients who are candidates for the dental laser decline anesthesia with the procedure because they don’t need it.
At Hannibal Dental Group, we use the Solea dental laser, which has been cleared by the FDA for procedures on the teeth and gums. It’s yet another way to keep you happy while you’re in our care. Because, at HDG, we love to see you smile.
Ask your HDG dentist if use of a dental laser is appropriate for you.
