General Dentistry in Owings Mills, MD
With general dental care, Dr. Nova and his team maintain oral health and hygiene and help patients receive high-quality solutions to their dental problems.
Dental lasers can address gum problems caused by periodontitis, also known as gum disease. Lasers are a gentler, more comfortable alternative to traditional gum surgery. We use a handheld laser that uses light and heat to remove infected gum tissue during laser gum treatment.
We use sedation dentistry to provide comfortable care to patients with dental anxiety, lengthy treatments, or surgeries. Oral conscious sedation delivered in the form of a pill can calm and relax patients before treatment.
Dental extractions remove problem teeth, including impacted wisdom teeth, overcrowded teeth, and infected teeth. Dr. Nova uses anesthetic and sedation to gently remove teeth and offer implants to replace missing teeth.
Dr. Nova offers 3-D root canals for patients with cavities and tooth decay. A root canal removes infected dental pulp within a tooth. The pulp is the nerves, tissues, and blood vessels that keep the tooth alive. Once the dental pulp is infected, a professional needs to remove it to preserve the tooth structure. Dr. Nova uses digital technology to plan root canal treatments for the most precise care possible. He takes three-dimensional scans of the smile to determine where to access the pulp.
Dr. Nova also provides dental fillings and tooth crowns to fill in teeth after root canal treatment. He uses white fillings made of composite resin that easily blend in with natural teeth. Fillings help seal out tooth decay and lower the chance of reinfection. Dr. Nova will also recommend dental crowns for added support. Crowns fully cover teeth and protect worn and injured teeth. Additionally, tooth crowns can create an even bite.
