To learn more about these services, you can continue reading or you can call Brandon Family Dental today at 248-469-0218 to schedule a consultation. Dr. Angela and her friendly team would be happy to answer all of your treatment questions in person!

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to come in. Your wisdom teeth will generally erupt in your late teens or early twenties, but some of our patients will see signs of their wisdom teeth earlier or later in life.

Wisdom teeth often need to be removed because most people do not have enough room in their mouth for a third set of molars. It’s best for us to remove your wisdom teeth before they begin to erupt because they often come in under your other teeth, which can push them out of alignment, create a crowded smile, or even cause an abscess.

While many dentists have to refer their patients out for this service, Dr. Angela can extract your wisdom teeth herself – even if they’re impacted! This means less stress for you. You don’t have to schedule an appointment with a specialist you don’t know at an office that isn’t familiar to you and your family or worry about bothering them with follow-up questions afterward.

You already know that Dr. Angela and her team will patiently answer any questions you may have. And we’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable during your procedure at our peaceful woodside dental office. Once you’re in the dental chair, you can get cozy with our blankets and pillows and then we’ll sedate you if desired, so you won’t feel a thing.

During your bi-annual dental exam, we can take digital X-rays and discuss whether your wisdom teeth need to be removed. If you’re already experiencing pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth, you need to come in right away for immediate relief.

Root Canal Treatment

Regular dental cleanings, dental exams, and good oral hygiene at home can help keep your teeth free of decay, but sometimes you can still get a cavity. Brandon Family Dental can treat small cavities with tooth-colored fillings and larger cavities with dental crowns, but sometimes the cavity is so deep or the infection so widespread that the only way to save your tooth is for Dr. Angela to perform root canal therapy.

Maybe you’ve heard stories from family and friends about root canals done elsewhere that were total nightmares, but at Brandon Family Dental, your root canal story will be more like a dream come true. When Dr. Angela is your dentist, the same skilled dentist you see for your family’s general dentistry is the same skilled dentist you see for your root canal treatment.

During your root canal treatment, Dr. Angela will use the cutting-edge Calamus technique to clear out all the infection deep down inside your tooth that’s been causing you pain. She also has rotary units and files of all sizes, so she can do the most thorough job possible. If your root canal isn’t done by a careful dental professional, bacteria could re-enter your tooth and your root canal treatment would need to be repeated.

By allowing Dr. Angela to perform your root canal, not only can you save your tooth, but you can prevent the infection from spreading to your other teeth. Your tooth is worth saving, so call Dr. Angela to get the treatment you need by the dentist you trust.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Brandon Family Dental, we do all we can to keep your teeth happy and healthy, but sometimes, even if your teeth are healthy, you can be dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile. Your smile can heavily affect the way you feel about yourself.

  • Teeth whitening for a brighter smile
