“I just had my follow up cleaning appointment with Linda and all I can say is Wow! She was absolutely amazing and the patient care I received from her was outstanding! She has 20 years of experience under her belt and it is very apparent. My cleaning was absolutely painless and she was very informative about my current gum and tooth conditions. I will definitely be going back to see here! Make sure you ask for Linda. I highly recommend her and Libby Dental!”

Dental X-Rays and Check-Ups

During your semi-annual dental check-ups, our dentist will personally use x-rays to evaluate the state of your teeth and check for cavities, signs of gum disease, and other potential dental issues. These visits allow us to catch problems early on when they’re more easily treatable. In many cases, this preventative care can resolve concerns before they worsen into more severe issues and eliminate the need for more expensive or invasive treatment in the future.

Teeth Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are essential to removing the plaque and tartar buildup that daily brushing and flossing are unable to reach. These cleanings build the foundation for good oral health and can lower your risk of developing cavities, decay, tooth infections, and gum disease. We use gentle techniques during your cleaning to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease — also known as periodontal disease or gingivitis — is a systemic health issue that can range from mild to severe depending on whether the symptoms are left untreated. Without intervention, gum disease can progress and present a major health concern. If you notice any signs of gum disease, such as redness or swollen gums, we encourage you to come to our office for an evaluation. Our team can provide you with preventative treatment or a diagnosis and subsequent care, if necessary.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are a simple solution to treat cavities and protect vulnerable areas of your teeth. At Libby Dental, we use composite tooth-colored fillings that blend into your smile and preserve a bright smile, rather than the metal amalgam fillings utilized in the past. This allows your fillings to look and feel natural, thereby supporting optimal oral health for many years to come.

Urgent Dental Care

Dental emergencies are frightening and uncomfortable. When you need an emergency dentist, you can rely on Libby Dental. Our priorities are to make you comfortable again and restore your oral health. When you call ahead for urgent care, we make it our effort to aid you as soon as possible.
