Comprehensive Dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of general conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. Quality preventive care allows Dr. Murphy to diagnose and treat problems early (while they’re still small) and utilize more conservative treatment plans. Early diagnosis also reduces your risk of needing more complex and expensive treatment in the future. Best of all, with her advanced technology and expertise, Dr. Murphy can perform many complex procedures right in her office!
Many of the things that we take for granted with natural teeth–including smiling, talking, and eating the foods we love–can all become easier again with restorative dentistry. Dr. Murphy offers a variety of restorative dental treatments that can help you get your smile back and better than ever.
Having a beautiful smile that you’re proud of can enhance your self-esteem, boost your confidence, and help you make better first impressions. Dr. Murphy believes that all dentistry is cosmetic in nature, and her goal is to help you keep your own natural, healthy smile for the rest of your life. Even subtle treatments like teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings can make a BIG difference in the health and appearance of your teeth.
One of the longest-lasting benefits of a healthy smile during childhood is the foundation for a healthy self-image. A healthy and attractive smile brings higher self-esteem and increased confidence, especially for children and teenagers, and we all remember what it was like making friends at that age. Dr. Murphy strongly believes that kids deserve healthy smiles that they’re proud to show off.
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. If your gums feel tender, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you could be at risk for gum disease. Untreated gum disease has been linked to other serious health problems, so it’s important to keep them healthy with biannual dental checkups and cleanings.
