Our team at Meadowlark Dental is here to help you smile with confidence again. Take the quiz to see if you are a candidate for dental implant treatment.
Do you have questions about your upcoming visit? We can help! Our caring team is always happy to discuss your questions, needs, and concerns.
If your smile could use additional care to achieve its full potential, schedule a consultation with our trained cosmetic specialists. Our team will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth to create a treatment plan to address your unique needs and desired results.
What can you expect from your trusted Lenexa dental practice? Here are the cosmetic procedures we offer to help our patients achieve their smile goals:
If tooth alignment is a concern, talk to us about Invisalign. This orthodontic treatment system uses convenient removable clear retainers to gradually move your teeth into the desired alignment.
Life darkens teeth. Tea, coffee, wine, foods, smoking, and age are among the factors that can make your teeth look dull. That is why we offer professional teeth whitening treatment to reveal a more beautiful smile in as little as one visit.
Porcelain veneers are often the ideal cosmetic solution for patients who want to transform their smiles. These thin custom layers of porcelain are designed to restore functionality, appearance, and comfort.
Even with proper at-home care and good oral hygiene, your child may need additional help to keep their teeth healthy. Our team offers dental sealants to prevent cavities in school-age children and protect their smiles from tooth decay.
To protect your child’s smile from cavity-causing bacteria, our dentist recommends regular fluoride applications as part of your child’s preventive care. Fluoride strengthens your child's enamel to prevent and even reverse the early stages of tooth decay.
Our team understands how important it is to restore your child’s dental health without compromising their naturally bright smile. That is why we offer tooth-colored fillings to repair cavities without the need for silver or other metals.
Patients with generally good oral health should attend routine checkups twice a year, or once every six months. Our practice may recommend more frequent visits if you are in need of further support because of periodontal disease or an oversensitivity to decay. Our exam is designed to identify areas of damage or decay at the earliest stages, along with other areas we check in these periodic exams.
Not only do we check ourselves in the examination, but we also ask you what concerns or questions you might have with the exam. Should something out of the ordinary present itself, we will cover that with you and set up the next steps to address it. These types of exams are important for both our oral health and our overall health.
Thorough cleanings from one of our excellent hygienists will provide your smile with valuable assistance as well. The sticky, bacteria-filled substance known as plaque is constantly forming over your teeth, causing potential damage until it’s cleared away with diligent brushing and flossing. This plaque, or soft bacteria, starts to form in layers in a few hours, which is part of why it is so important to brush and floss twice daily. It is important to clean these layers away.
If areas are missed in brushing and flossing, the plaque can harden into tartar or calculus, a combination of different types of hard bacteria. It requires our equipment and expertise to remove it safely. This type of hard bacteria is not beneficial; it attacks the teeth and more, both on the outside layers of the bacteria you see, and the inside layer against the tooth and gums.
Our hygienists can professionally cleanse these areas, leaving your mouth refreshed, but more importantly, cleaned and healthier.
Is it time to choose a dentist for you and your children? We welcome you to Meadowlark Dental, where we offer top-quality dental services at affordable prices. When you visit us, here is the dentistry services and procedures you can expect:
Our dentist offers regular dental checkups to patients of all ages and stages of care. At your next checkup, you can expect a professional cleaning, full examination, digital X-rays, and oral cancer screening. We will also recommend improvements to your or your child’s at-home care routine to help the whole family maintain optimal oral health.
Our team can repair or replace teeth with restorative dental care. Crowns are used to repair teeth in cases of injury or decay. Made from high-quality porcelain, a crown can restore your tooth's look, function, and strength. If you are missing one or more teeth, our dentist may recommend a bridge to fill the gap in your smile and restore your healthy bite.
Athletes of all ages should use custom-made sports mouthguards when they enjoy contact sports and other physical activities. Our dentist recommends mouth guards for adults and children. For patients who clench or grind their teeth at night (a condition known as nighttime bruxism), we also offer comfortable nightguards.
Dental sealants are an important preventive treatment for young and cavity-prone children. Our dentist applies sealants to the chewing surfaces of your child’s teeth to seal out cavity-causing bacteria. This helps keep your child’s smile strong and free of decay.
Even with great oral hygiene and at-home care, cavities can still happen. When cavities do occur, we repair teeth with natural-looking composite fillings to restore smiles without the need for silver (dental amalgam). Made from high-quality composite resin, tooth-colored fillings are safe for patients aged 6 and up.
Our dentist welcomes patients of all ages and stages of care, including children and teens.
Early detection is one of the essential keys to catching and fighting cancer. Many people do not know that one of the places cancer most arises is in the mouth. In our practice, we provide oral cancer screenings as a vital part of the dental exam. Without such screenings, most cases of oral cancer are not caught until it has reached the advanced stages, making a recovery much less likely. By locating areas of potentially cancerous cells earlier, we can better protect our patients and help them achieve a better, less expensive, and healthier future.
There are several spots in the mouth where decay and food particles are more likely to accumulate and damage the chewing surfaces of your back teeth. This is especially true when the little grooves of your teeth are shaped in a sharp “V” shape, making them difficult to really clean. Dental sealants can be used to “seal” these areas shut, leading to a more cleanable rounded “U” shape in the grooves and minimizing bacteria presence. Our dentists typically recommend sealants for younger patients who are still learning to care for their teeth or adults who suffer from excessive sensitivity to decay.
Our team will take digital X-rays to assess the health of your teeth both above and below the gum line. X-rays can help us diagnose a variety of dental health concerns, such as tooth decay, gum disease, oral cysts, and jawbone health issues.
Our dentist will design a treatment plan to meet your needs and get your periodontal health back on that. This may include deep cleanings, antibiotics, and surgical procedures as needed to fully treat your gum disease and reverse its effects. We will explain every step of your treatment plan to make sure that you fully understand your dental care.
