Dr. Misun Kang and Dr. Doyle Van Buren provide comprehensive dental care for children, adolescents and adults. You are in caring, gentle hands when you visit Family Dental. A full range of dental services are available.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage.
Bonding is the process where our dentists cover over a tooth’s surface with a tooth-colored composite. This is done to change the shape of a tooth, or to repair a damaged or stained tooth.
Appliance fixed to teeth adjacent to a space. Replaces one or more missing teeth, cemented or bonded to supporting teeth, or implants adjacent to the space.
This is a form of dentistry where treatments are performed to enhance the color and shape of teeth.
Dental restoration covering all or most of the natural tooth; the artificial cap can be made of porcelain, composite, or metal and is cemented on top of the damaged tooth.
A removable replacement of artificial teeth for missing natural teeth, and surrounding tissues. Complete and partials are available.
Our dentists can perform tooth removal at our Springfield office.
We restore lost tooth structure with metal, porcelain, or resin materials.
A metal rod, usually made of titanium, that is surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone where a tooth is missing. It serves as the tooth root and anchor for the crown, bridge, or denture that is placed over it.
Root Canal Therapy
Procedure used to save an abscessed tooth in which the pulp chamber is cleaned out, disinfected, and filled with a permanent filling.
Scaling and Root Planing
A deep-cleaning, nonsurgical procedure whereby plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are scraped away (scaling) and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth (planing).
A thin, clear or white resin substance that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth to prevent decay.
When gums rest too low, or too high, on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.
Using plastic or porcelain, a thin, custom-made shell is created and bonded directly to the front side of natural teeth to improve their appearance.
At Family Dental we offer same-day teeth whitening. A chemical or laser process is performed to lighten the color of teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
We remove the third or last molars that typically emerge between ages 18 and 25.
