Dental Care in Fall River, MA

At George Rodrigues Jr., D.D.S., we understand the need for quality dental care for the entire family. At our office, you will be greeted by friendly staff members who are always available to answer any questions you may have about your appointment.

Services we offer include, but are not limited to:

Cleanings

Routine dental cleanings are important for maintaining good oral hygiene and health. During a cleaning, our trained hygienists will remove any plaque or tartar that has built up on your teeth. We then complete the cleaning by polishing and flossing your teeth. X-rays and fluoride treatments may be used to assist us in preventing cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging that utilizes sensors instead of traditional photographic film and exposes patients to much less radiation. Our practice uses this advanced technology to quickly and easily diagnose any signs of decay or dental disease in our patients.

Fillings

Fillings prevent further tooth decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. Typically used for cavities, fillings are made of a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and amalgam. A dental filling will restore the function and integrity of a tooth.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is done in order to save a badly infected tooth due to a diseased pulp. The pulp is the inner part of the tooth and contains its vessels, nerves and other tissues. Severe pain and sensitivity, among other problems, will arise as a result of a damaged pulp. During the procedure, Dr. Rodrigues will removed the pulp and completely disinfect the tooth’s interior. He will then restore the tooth with a crown or filling for protection.

Crowns

A crown is used to restore the shape, size and integrity or a damaged tooth. They fully encase the visible portion of a tooth and are often used following a restorative procedure or to connect dental bridges. If you have cracked, chipped or discolored teeth, dental crowns may be right for you.

Bridges

A bridge is a dental appliance that bridges the gap left behind by missing teeth. Custom made to fit your mouth, bridges restore the natural contour of teeth and improve your bite. They are bonded to existing teeth or implants and can last a lifetime.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are appropriate for patients with some natural teeth remaining in their upper or lower jaw. Made of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, partial dentures fill the spaces created by missing teeth. They also prevent existing teeth from moving or shifting. Partial dentures are removable and usually have clasps that attach to adjacent teeth.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace a full arch of missing teeth. Both partial and complete dentures are designed to enhance your smile, and look and function like natural teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth and improve the aesthetics and functionality of your smile.

Minor Orthodontics

Our office provides patients with orthodontic evaluations and minor orthodontic treatments. Most often done for children, an orthodontic evaluation allows us to assess the development of the teeth, gums, bones and muscles in their mouth. Together with you, we will determine if orthodontic care is right for you or your child’s oral health needs.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the clear alternative to metal braces and great for patients of all ages. These clear aligners are practically invisible, so you can straighten and correct your smile without anyone noticing. Invisalign® aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth according to your personalized treatment plan. A new set of aligners are used every 1-2 weeks.

Bleaching

Teeth bleaching, or whitening, systems are an effective way to remove stains and discoloration. There are a variety of different bleaching options that can give you a brighter and whiter smile. Schedule a consultation with us today to find out which whitening treatment is best for you.

LANAP®

LANAP® protocol is a minimally invasive laser therapy for the treatment of gum disease, replacing conventional periodontal surgery. The results of LANAP® are successful and predictable, as the laser treats gum disease faster and with less pain. If you are suffering from gum/periodontal disease, LANAP® may be right for you.

Simple Implant Placement

Dr. Rodrigues and his staff complete simple implant placement to help patients replace teeth and restore their smile. If you have properly aligned teeth, placing a single implant will be a relatively easy process. However, more steps are involved if multiple implants need to be surgically inserted into your jawbone.

Restoring Implants with Crowns/Bridges

Crowns and bridges are used to restore the form and function of natural teeth as well as dental implants. Bridges can be supported by implants while crowns will completely cover implants that are chipped, cracked or discolored.

Implant Retained Dentures

Implant retained dentures are a more secure and comfortable option for patients looking to replace missing teeth. These dentures not only look natural, but they will keep your facial structure looking younger because the teeth help to hold everything in place. The implants for these dentures are usually placed at the front of your mouth.

Extractions

A tooth is usually extracted because of disease, trauma or overcrowding. Dr. Rodrigues will carefully examine the infected tooth to determine if it can be saved. If the tooth is damaged beyond repair, an extraction may be necessary.

Referral to Specialists

While our practice is equipped to handle almost all of your dental needs, in some cases, we may refer you to a dental specialist. You can trust our team to put you in the best hands possible for any unique procedures or treatments you may need.

24-Hour Answering Service

Our dental practice has a 24-hour answering service for dental emergencies or any dental injury that may occur. If you are in need of immediate assistance, we are here to help.
