Our Range of Dental Services in Cambridge

Preventive Dentistry

  • Dental Exams: Regular dental examinations are essential for assessing your oral health, identifying issues early, and developing treatment plans.
  • Dental X-rays: X-rays help our team to see below the surface and detect hidden problems such as cavities, impacted teeth, or bone loss.
  • Cleanings: Professional dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
  • Sealants and Flouride Treatments: Protect the grooves and pits of your teeth and strengthen your tooth enamel to make it more resistant to decay.

Restorative Dentistry

  • Fillings: Fillings are used to repair cavities and restore the integrity of damaged teeth.
  • Crowns: Dental crowns are protective caps placed over weakened or damaged teeth to restore their shape and function.
  • Bridges: Dental bridges replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent healthy teeth.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, consisting of a titanium post and a custom restoration.

Pediatric Dentistry

  • Check-Ups and Cleanings: Regular check-ups and cleanings for children are vital for monitoring oral development and preventing cavities.
  • Dental Sealants: Sealants protect children's vulnerable molars from decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride applications strengthen developing teeth.
  • Fillings: Children may require fillings if cavities develop.
  • Pulp Therapy: Pulp therapy, similar to a root canal, treats infected tooth pulp in primary teeth.
  • Extractions: If necessary, we perform extractions to remove problematic primary teeth.
  • Space Maintainers: These devices ensure proper spacing for permanent teeth to erupt.
  • Mouthguards: Custom mouthguards protect your child's teeth during physical activities, such as sports.

Cosmetic Dentistry

  • Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening treatments can effectively brighten your smile.
  • Dental Veneers: Veneers are thin shells applied to the front of teeth to improve their appearance.
  • Cosmetic Bonding: Bonding can repair minor dental imperfections, such as chips or gaps.

Braces Cambridge

If you're concerned about misaligned teeth, overcrowding, or other dental issues, braces can help. Braces are dental appliances that gently align and straighten teeth, enhance your bite, and improve your smile's appearance.

At Wakefield Family Dentistry & Orthodontics in Cambridge, OH, we offer various braces options to transform your smile, including:

  • Metal Braces
  • Ceramic Braces
  • Lingual Braces
  • Damon System
  • SureSmile
  • Six Month Smiles

Braces Installation Process

The journey begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Wakefield to assess your dental needs and create a customized treatment plan. You'll have periodic adjustments as your teeth gradually move into the desired position. The duration varies depending on your individual goals.

Invisalign Cambridge

Do you dream of a confident smile but feel hesitant about traditional braces? Invisalign clear aligners provide a discreet, comfortable, and effective alternative for teeth straightening. At Wakefield Dental in Cambridge, OH, we offer Invisalign with the latest technology and techniques, ensuring you receive exceptional care and results.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign stands out for its comfort, convenience, and discreet appearance, as these aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss with ease. They're virtually invisible, offering a clear advantage over traditional braces. Invisalign is suitable for mild to moderate orthodontic issues, making it an excellent choice for many patients.

Invisalign for All Ages

Invisalign isn't just for adults. Invisalign First is designed for children as young as six, while Invisalign Teen caters to teenagers, offering discreet treatment and customized plans.

Emergency Dental Services

24/7 Emergency Support

Dental emergencies can strike at any time and without warning. Whether it's a severe toothache, a broken tooth, or a knocked-out tooth, these situations can be frightening, painful, and disruptive. Prompt treatment is essential to alleviate pain, save your tooth, and prevent further complications.

In the event of a dental emergency, we are on standby 24 hours a day. Please feel free to call
(740) 435-3100 should you require emergency dental care.

Types of Dental Emergencies and How to Deal with Them

  • Avulsed (Knocked-Out) Tooth: If a tooth is knocked out, keep it moist and try to reinsert it into the socket if possible. If not, place it in milk or saliva and seek immediate dental care.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: Save the restoration if possible and see your dentist promptly for reattachment or replacement.
  • Cracked or Broken Teeth: Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Seek dental care as soon as possible.
  • Dislodged/Loose Teeth: Gently try to reposition the tooth and hold it in place. Seek immediate dental attention.
  • Orthodontic Emergencies: If you have issues with orthodontic appliances, contact us for guidance and assistance immediately.
