Preventive Care

We believe that preventative care is among the most effective ways to ensure long-lasting oral wellness. Dr. Otteson encourages and educates our patients on developing better at-home oral hygiene routines in combination with regular cleanings, exams, and oral cancer screenings to preserve the longevity of your smile.

Pediatric Dentistry

Establishing good oral hygiene habits at an early age can help ensure a healthier smile well into adulthood. Unlike adults, children require a unique approach to dental care from the moment their first set of teeth erupts. Dr. Otteson provides pediatric dental care to deliver the best treatment solutions for every member of your family.

Tooth Extractions

At times, tooth extraction is required to alleviate your pain and preserve the wellness of the rest of your teeth. Impacted teeth can interfere with the alignment of your smile if not treated properly. This is especially common with wisdom teeth. Dr. Otteson will apply his extensive experience to determine if problematic teeth require extraction and make the removal process quick, safe, and painless.

Root Canals

Prompt treatment is crucial when a cracked or decayed tooth progresses to the point where the roots become infected. In these cases, Dr. Otteson may recommend a root canal to restore your teeth to full function. This is a safe and routine procedure that will relieve your pain and allow for the affected tooth to be preserved.

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry covers the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions and diseases of the oral and maxillofacial region. Dr. Otteson not only offers general services but also cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to provide well-rounded comprehensive care to his patients.

How do I know if I have a cavity?

There are a few signs that indicate you may have a cavity including:

  • A visible pit or hole in your tooth
  • Unusual sensitivity to cold or hot foods or drinks
  • Sharp pain in your tooth or close to the gum line
  • Any changes in the color of your teeth

Cavities aren’t always accompanied by pain, so it’s important to schedule regular visits at our Chandler office so we can catch any cavities before they worsen.
