General Dentistry

At Buxton Family Dental, we offer all the services you and your family need to enjoy healthy smiles. These include preventive treatments to keep your smile a step ahead of disease, restorative treatments to correct problems when they occur, and cosmetic procedures to put the finishing touch on a healthy smile.

As your general dentist, you can think of Dr. Kendell Buxton as the quarterback for all your dental needs. He oversees your general oral health care, and if it’s necessary to refer you, he will coordinate with a trusted specialist to ensure that you receive the highest quality care.

Preventive Cleanings & Exams

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.

During your routine appointments, Dr. Buxton will perform a visual exam 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.

Comprehensive Family Dental Care

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.
  • Esthetic Procedures – Virtually every 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 esthetic restorations, we also offer veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, and teeth whitening.

Your Family Deserves the Best!

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. We are connected to a network of dedicated professionals in the area whom we know and trust to provide you with the highest quality skilled care.
