Dental Cleanings & Prevention in Coeur d’Alene, ID
Professional teeth cleanings are not just about having a bright white smile. Bacteria and plaque
lead to tooth damage and decay that can be permanent and painful, so it’s never a good idea to
leave the health and appearance of your teeth up to chance. Dr. Delwyn Dick and our dental
team can help you during regular checkups and send you home with tips for maintaining your
smile in-between visits.
How often you should visit the dentist
It’s important to see a dentist at least once every six months for a cleaning and routine checkup.
Proper dental hygiene helps prevent the buildup of bacteria that forms on your teeth, tongue,
and gums. Dental exams and teeth cleanings are recommended every six months for patients
of all ages who have healthy gum tissues with low to moderate tartar buildup, and every three
to four months for those who have gum disease.
What to expect during a dental checkup in our office
By maintaining your teeth every six months, our dentist can monitor your teeth and
gums for decay or infection. At each visit, our hygienist will remove the tartar buildup
that otherwise may result in bone loss. Dental X-rays are also part of all routine dental
visits. X-rays are a tool used to diagnose cavities, periodontal disease, and oral
pathologies. We recommend dental X-rays be taken at least once per year, or at every

Composite materials and adhesive techniques have become the foundation of modern restorative dentistry replacing metal amalgams. This type of filling will match the color of your existing teeth and bond directly onto the tooth surface to make them stronger. This material requires less drilling and metal-free restorations.
A root canal is required when a tooth becomes infected or a large amount of decay exists in the nerve. The nerve is removed so there is no feeling in the tooth but the tooth itself remains in place. In most cases, a final restoration using a dental crown is required after the root canal is completed to stabilize the tooth.
When are teeth extractions required? In some cases, the extraction of a tooth may be the best option to stop an advanced infection or replace a weakened tooth with a stronger prosthetic to support your teeth and jaw. We pride ourselves in taking the least-invasive and most gentle approach as possible with this type of procedure. If you do need a tooth extraction, our team will share post-op instructions to minimize any discomfort.
Dental Crown & Bridge Procedures in Coeur d’Alene, ID
If you have teeth that have become chipped or cracked and you want to protect your remaining enamel, you should consider scheduling an appointment with our compassionate oral care professionals.
Often, if you have only a few teeth that have become damaged, we may suggest placing a crown on top of the tooth to protect it from further damage or decay. If you have several teeth that are missing however, our dentist might suggest that you consider having a bridge installed to fill in the missing gaps.
We utilize crowns and bridges to repair common concerns, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Weak and vulnerable teeth
Through artistry and laboratory techniques, we achieve outstanding results restoring teeth with all-porcelain crowns and veneers. The cutting-edge technology of adhesive bonding dentistry makes these restorations second to none. By removing unhealthy or cracked tooth structure and replacing it with natural-looking porcelain, which fits the tooth like a “thimble” or “jacket,” we protect the remaining tooth structure and achieve a beautiful result.
