Did you know that not having a toothache doesn’t necessarily mean that your teeth are in top condition? Dr. Kelly recommends at least one annual check-up, but preferably two. Check-ups and professional dental cleanings regularly, along with a few good brushing and flossing habits at home, are essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums long-term.
Professional dental cleaning reduces swelling of the gums, prevents oral problems, and reinforces teeth protection. Not only that, but it leaves a pleasant feeling of cleanliness and freshness that you don’t get with a traditional toothbrush. The results are visible immediately: the mouth is in excellent clean condition.
We are happy to provide two types of dentures at Rushmore Dental. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. Full dentures are for when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are best when some natural teeth remain.
Full dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. On the other hand, immediate dentures are made in advance and positioned just as the teeth are removed. By doing this, the patient does not have to go without teeth during their healing period.
The main disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process. Generally, they should be only a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made. Learn more here.
General Dentistry Services
General dentistry is primary dental care that diagnoses treats, and manages your overall oral health needs. General dentistry includes gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.
General dentistry provides dental care to all ages. At a routine visit to Rushmore Dental practice, you will have a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and bone structures, a professional cleaning, and a discussion about your dental health. If your exam reveals tooth decay, you will also have a filling in the affected tooth.

Veneers are an excellent aesthetic solution for those who want to perfect their teeth with a more uniform appearance, consistent shape, and color.
Veneers made from either porcelain or a composite resin cover the tooth’s front like a wafer-thin shell. Veneers improve the overall aesthetic by changing the shape, covering up stains, and closing spaces between teeth. They smooth out imperfections and even out the shade of your smile.
Porcelain veneers allow a whole new appearance while requiring only a small amount of reshaping of your natural tooth structure. Porcelain veneers are hand-made, painted, and glazed for the most aesthetic and natural tooth look possible.
Today tooth decay, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, or injuries that once left someone with ample space in their smile can look completely natural. With dental implant treatments, nobody will even notice that there has been any tooth loss. Dental implants have the feel and function of natural teeth and are the gold standard for tooth replacement.
If you suffer tooth loss or are missing several teeth, you have the option of restoring your smile and your function to perfection. Dental implants are one of the latest, most permanent tooth restoration solutions available. Click here to learn more.
