If you’re ready to discover the difference that skilled and compassionate dental care can make for your family’s smiles, give us a call today at (931) 398-5170 and schedule a visit for the whole family!
Dr. Shanks serves the folks of Crossville with general dentistry services that help maintain a lifetime of oral health, such as teeth cleanings, fillings, and gum disease treatments. Our staff is committed to practicing preventative dentistry and teaching the Crossville community all about preventative techniques for healthier teeth. We’re here because we love providing and promoting great dental health.
While transforming smiles with fancy cosmetic treatments is fun and rewarding, our primary goal is to keep your family’s smiles clean and healthy and instill good habits and values that will ensure a lifetime of oral health. We can help you establish a good oral home care routine, and give you a good professional cleaning twice per year to take care of anything you’ve left behind. We will also make note of any changes in your mouth that may be a sign of gum disease or oral cancer, so we can catch it before it becomes more serious.
When it comes to oral health, there’s no substitute for a good, steady brushing and flossing regimen. It’s your first line of defense against tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems that can cost you a lot of pain and agony (and money!) down the road.
Give us a call at (931) 398-5170 and schedule a cleaning for the whole family today!
We love to see our patients practicing great home oral care, but we also recommend that Crossville residents visit Northside Family Dentistry for their regular teeth cleanings to take care of anything you’ve left behind. Only your Crossville dentist has the tools and training to remove hard to reach plaque and hardened tartar that can cause problems.
On top of that we’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth, tongue, and gums so we catch any small issues before they become big, expensive problems. As Dr. Shanks always says, prevention is the best medicine!
As your oral health advisors, our primary mission is to educate our patients to empower them to make healthy choices, and establish good habits that will ensure a lifetime of oral health and happy smiles. Here’s some advice straight from the professionals at Northside Family Dentistry on how to keep your smile clean and healthy at home:
At Northside Family Dentistry, we want all our Crossville dental patients to have the information they need to ensure their families’ oral health. That’s why we want to talk to you about gum disease. Did you know that the leading cause of tooth loss is not tooth decay or sports injuries, but in fact, gum disease? When bacteria invade the gum tissue and irritate the gums, they begin to create pockets of infection and literally separate the gums from the teeth, leaving room for the infection to progress and wreak havoc on your mouth.
Left unchecked, gum disease can not only cause tooth loss, but can also contribute to serious systemic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, respiratory issues, and more. How’s that for a good reason to floss every day?! If your gums are bleeding during regular brushing and flossing, don’t wait until it’s too late! You should come see your Crossville dentist right away.
Give us a call at (931) 398-5170 today and Dr. Shanks can help rejuvenate your gums back to health.
If you think you might be suffering from gum disease, check out Dr. Shanks’ list of common signs and symptoms:
Worried about gum disease? The best thing Crossville residents can do is visit Dr. Shanks for a consultation. We’ll take good care of your gums. If you do have gum disease, we can provide you with a custom treatment plan to get it under control. This may include antibiotics and routine periodontal cleanings.
Need a filling? Unfortunately, most of us will at some point. Did you know that tooth decay, or dental caries is among the most common chronic diseases in America, second only to the common cold? Fortunately, advances in dental medicine offer Crossville residents a superior alternative to traditional amalgam (metal) fillings of the past.
Call your Crossville dentist, Dr. Johnny Shanks at Northside Family Dentistry today at (931) 398-5170.
Today, getting a filling or other dental restoration doesn’t mean a mouth full of metal. Tooth-colored materials allow your natural smile to shine seamlessly, so no one will ever have to know you’ve had dental work done. As always, our best advice is to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home, eat a healthy, balanced diet, and maintain your regular visits with Dr. Shanks at Northside Family Dentistry!
There are many benefits of tooth colored fillings versus traditional metal fillings, including:
