What is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry focuses on combating issues before they become one. This means we teach ways to combat disease causing bacteria, make predictions on spacing and bite, provide preventive tools to help and try to catch small problems before they evolve to larger ones. Prevention helps you have healthier teeth and gums longer.
The benefits of preventive dentistry includes:
|Better Bite: Early orthodontia, continuing orthodontia and evaluating spacing as teeth develop are all preventive steps we can take to help you have a better bite.
|Less Cavities: The ongoing fight against decay causing bacteria is a daily battle. We can provide you with the information to be successful. This includes dental cleanings, exams, brushing and flossing tips and the addition of cavity fighting tools such as dental sealants and fluoride.
|Healthier Gums: Your gum tissue plays a vital role in your oral health and yet nearly half of adults suffer from a bacterial infection of their gum tissue known as gum disease. We want to help strengthen your gum tissue and provide you the information you need to help keep them healthy.

Tooth damage is likely going to occur, we use our teeth a lot. You don't have to live with damage, discoloration or gaps in your teeth. There is a procedure that is right for you and your unique situation. From bridges, to dentures, to implants, we can restore and rebuild your smile.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
When your teeth and gums are damaged, restoration is important. You want to care for your oral health because of the crucial function our mouths play in our daily life. Whether there is disease, breakage, malocclusion, gum disease or more, these obstacles affect our health and even our self esteem. Restorative dentistry is about rebuilding and restoring our teeth and surrounding tissue, both aesthetically and in the function they provide.
The benefits of restorative dentistry includes:
|Removal of Disease: Disease anywhere in our body can be problematic. Our teeth can’t battle infection, so they continue to deteriorate and may even infect neighboring tissue. We want to remove disease causing bacteria and restore the area. This may include cleaning cavities from caries, root canal therapy, battling gum disease through scaling and root planing and more.
|Restoration of Damage: Teeth can become damaged from more than disease, they can become chipped, cracked, fractured and broken. Broken teeth can be painful, and additionally creates space for bacteria to find swift passage inside our teeth. Restoring teeth through dental bonding, fillings or the use of a dental crown is best for both the immediate and long term health of the tooth.

It's easy to take a smile for granted, unless you're self-conscious about yours. Don’t hide your smile. Natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains have always caused embarrassment and social anxiety. We can enhance and elevate teeth that are ugly, including teeth that are stained, chipped, or even crooked. You can have a vibrant, professional smile.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the enhancement of your teeth’s appearance. This can include simple, one step procedures, or longer multi-step treatments. Beautifying your smile can change your look and even elevate your entire face.
The benefits of cosmetic dentistry includes:
|Teeth Whitening: Having your teeth whitened professionally can make a huge difference in your smile. Whiter teeth look fresher, cleaner and brighter. There are store bought kits, but they can’t provide the same prescription strength and controlled care that we can offer.
|Dental Bonding: Covering stains, chips and more may be easier than you think. Dental bonding is a treatment that is completed using porcelain composite filling material. You can have beautiful teeth quickly and easily.
|Dental Veneers and Crowns: If you are looking for a longer term solution than bonding, dental veneers or crowns may be your answer. Veneers use a thin porcelain shell to cover the face of your most visible teeth, or dental crowns fully encase any tooth to increase their look and beauty.
|Clear Aligners: A clear aligner is a retainer like device that fits over your teeth with an invisible look. We use them to reposition your most visible teeth in a discreet way. Many call them a modern take on traditional braces.

Many patients have anxieties about their dental treatment. At Covington Family Dental, Kyle S. Blair, DDS strives to meet your individual comfort needs. For our patients with anxiety, sedation dentistry may be the answer.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is the use of a conscious sedative to alleviate stress while having dental treatment completed. We offer both nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, or a prescribed conscious oral sedation as options for our patients. These options help relieve anxiety and even help time seem to pass more quickly without forcing sleep or unconsciousness.
The benefits of sedation dentistry includes:
|Less Anxiety: Conscious sedation does not remove your ability to understand or awareness, but it does help relax your body to a more euphoric state helping you not care about the dental treatment being completed. This reduces anxiety and can even allow us to complete more steps than we would be able to without it.
|Slight Amnesia: You won’t really experience amnesia, but most patients find that they are surprised how quickly the work was completed in, they are so relaxed that time goes by much easier.

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that could be life-threatening if not treated properly. People who have this condition stop and start repeatedly breathing through the night. Our doctors at Covington Family Dental, are trained to treat this disease. If you are always tired even after getting a good night’s sleep, you may have sleep apnea. This disease is not easy to identify because if you sleep alone, you don’t know whether you snore at night. While not everyone who snores has sleep apnea, that is one of the signs of the condition.
