Don’t worry if it has been a long time since you have had a teeth cleaning. Our dental hygienist will do a thorough cleaning and make sure that you feel comfortable and at ease during the process.
Our dental hygienist provides fluoride treatments for both adults and children without the use of bulky Styrofoam trays loaded with chloride gel. Instead, we will gently paint the fluoride directly onto your teeth with a small brush. This will discourage tooth decay and strengthen your enamel.
If you have sensitive teeth, our dental team can apply a highly specialized dental gel that will desensitize your teeth and gums.
Many children and adults needlessly fear dental services. Our doctor works to ensure that if an injection is needed, that it is virtually pain-free. Prior to a dental injection, a topical anesthetic is applied to the injection site to ensure that there is far less discomfort.
Dr. Bart Samuelson may use nitrous oxide gas, commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, to make sure you and your family members are comfortable during dental procedures. Nitrous is an anti-anxiety treatment that helps people to relax while receiving treatments. Your comfort, safety and peace of mind are our top priorities.
You can feel at ease while in our Rapid Valley office. We won’t lecture you or pressure you. If the dentist discovers that you need additional services, he will take the time to educate you about your current dental health issues and the treatment and payment options that are available to you.
Our office is proud to offer the full range of family dentistry services.
We use mercury-free composite fillings. These restorations look great, feel natural and are long-lasting. We also offer veneers, porcelain crowns, bridges, partials and dentures to repair your teeth and enhance the beauty of your smile. In-office and at-home professional-strength teeth whitening services are available brighten your smile.
Black Hills Area Dental can provide you with dentures. Dr. Samuelson will ensure that your dentures are custom-fit to make them feel as natural as possible.
The clenching and grinding of teeth can lead to dental damage. Our skilled office staff can create a night guard dental appliance to help protect teeth and soft oral structures from the damage caused by bruxism. This device can also assist in reducing TMJ pain headaches and jaw clicking.
Another type of dental appliance offered at Black Hills Area Dental is an anti-snoring mouth piece. If snoring is a problem for you or someone in your family, let us know.
