What dental services do you offer?
Problematic teeth can impair your ability to enjoy life, but we offer a wide range of solutions to restore your teeth to full health:
- Restorations – Whether you need a simple filling or a full smile makeover, we have the services you need. Our esthetic crowns and bridges are made using the highest quality materials so we can offer long-lasting, durable restorations.
- Root canal therapy – We want to dispel the myth that root canals are painful. You need the procedure when an infection in the inner portion of your tooth must be removed to save it. The fact is that it is the infection that causes pain, not the procedure.
- Gentle Extractions – Our goal is to preserve all your teeth for as long as possible, so we never take extraction lightly. But there are some cases where a tooth must come out to protect your overall oral health. You can be confident that our compassionate, caring team is here to support you throughout the procedure.
- Cosmetic Procedures – Virtually every dental service we offer at our Fort Collins dental office is designed to enhance the appearance of your smile while improving your oral health. In addition to our cosmetic restorations, we also offer veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, and teeth whitening.
Will my procedure hurt?
At Buxton Family Dental, we understand that dentistry is a challenge for many people, but we don’t want anxiety to jeopardize your oral health.
We encourage you to let us know what will help you relax the most. Your comfort comes first, and amenities like warm blankets, pillows, overhead televisions, and music with headphones help to put you at ease.
Dr. Buxton administers comfortable injections by warming the local anesthetic before use, and his gentle approach to make the numbing process as painless as possible. If your anxiety gets the better of you, we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry, including nitrous oxide, oral, and IV sedation.
If you’re looking for a dentist in Fort Collins who makes your comfort a priority, please call Buxton Family Dental to arrange an appointment!
Why are exams and dental cleanings so important?
Any effective dental care must include preventive treatments. If you want to know the “secret” to avoid dental problems that slow you down, the answer is prevention.
It is always preferable to see you for routine cleanings and exams than wait to correct issues until after they develop. Prevention is doubly important for children since we have an opportunity to give them the best possible start with a healthy smile that lasts.
What happens during my routine dental appointments?
During your routine appointments, Dr. Buxton will perform a visual examination and take x-rays of your teeth as required. Your safety is important to us, so every exam includes an oral cancer screening.
A thorough dental cleaning is needed twice a year to ensure that your gums are healthy and free of disease. Gum disease is widespread, but our gentle hygienists will work with you to develop a plan for treatment to restore your healthy smile.
Do you see emergency patients?
If you are in pain or have a broken tooth, lost a crown, or another dental emergency, please call our emergency dental office at (970) 482-6333 as soon as possible and let us know what’s going on. Dr. Buxton and our team understand how a sudden dental problem can disrupt your life, and we want to provide relief as quickly as possible. In some cases, acting quickly in a dental emergency can mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth.
If you have a sudden toothache or you lose a dental filling, we’re here to help. If you’re in pain or have another critical emergency, we’ll see you the same day. Always call us first; sometimes a non-urgent emergency like a chipped tooth can wait until our next available appointment.
When would you refer me to a specialist?
Dr. Buxton has been practicing dentistry for ten years and has all the training and expertise needed to handle a wide range of dental needs. But we also recognize that certain dental conditions require the experience and skill of a trained specialist like a periodontist, oral surgeon, or orthodontist.
Dr. Buxton works with a network of dedicated professionals in the area whom we know and trust to provide you with the highest quality skilled care.
