We know that informed patients tend to make better decisions about their health and well-being, so we provide ample opportunities for you to learn about topics associated with dentistry. In addition to meeting with members of our staff to discuss your situation, our website if filled with informative pages about all our services and the conditions we treat. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your dental needs and care.
In addition to caring for your oral health, Dr. Haynes and the staff at Kent T. Haynes, D.D.S. offer a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive services for our patients, including:
A cavity is never a welcome development, but they are quite common in children and adults alike. While the incidence of cavities has declined since the 1970s, more than 95 percent of men and women in the U.S. between the ages of 50 and 64 have at least one cavity. These numbers from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research indicate the demand for treatment is still quite high. The standard treatment for cavities remains dental fillings, although choices in fillings have evolved over the years.
There are various reasons why you might need oral surgery. This procedure is used to restore form and function after trauma or disease. It may also be recommended to remove or replace teeth, treat impacted teeth, or alleviate discomfort caused by other factors. Dr. Haynes offers a variety of oral surgery techniques to accommodate the needs of all his Durango patients at Radiance Smiles Center.
Over time, your teeth can become stained and discolored, detracting from your appearance and affecting your self-confidence. Dr. Haynes and his staff offer professional whitening treatments to restore the natural color of the teeth. When whitening agents are not sufficient, Dr. Haynes also offers teeth bonding, veneers, crowns and bridges to bring back your brilliant smile and your confidence when talking to others.
Orthodontics, the process of moving teeth into a more aligned position, is a treatment that can be performed on patients of all ages. In addition to the cosmetic benefits of orthodontics, this process can improve your oral health by adjusting your bite to distribute even pressure across the entire mouth. When your bite is in proper alignment, you relieve uncomfortable symptoms and prevent uneven wear and tear on your teeth.
