Family and General Dentistry Treatments for Patients of all Ages

Preventative measures are important for all patients, particularly children, in order to avoid more serious dental problems in the future. Dr. Edirisinghe encourages regular checkups that include dental cleanings and X-ray examinations, administered by the gentle and caring hygienists, Marissa and Marta, at our Milford practice. Additionally, dental sealants and fluoride should be applied to teeth to further prevent cavities, and worse, the need for root canals, dental crowns or bridgework later on in life.

Periodontal (gum) health is a main concern for the dental staff at Dr. Edirisinghe’s office. Gum disease is primarily the result of poor dental hygiene, which can cause bacterial plaque to build on and around the teeth. Dr. Edirisinghe specializes in the non-surgical treatment of gum disease, including scaling and root planing (in which the root surface is cleaned, and plaque and tarter buildup are completely removed). Our accommodating dental team will ensure that the process is as smooth and painless as possible.

Root canal therapy, a staple of endodontic treatment, can only be performed by a highly-skilled professional. The process involves removing nerve and pulp tissue from a damaged tooth. This treatment not only alleviates pain, but it can prevent the need for extraction at a later point in time. Dr. Edirisinghe aims to make the procedure as comfortable for patients as possible. If you suffer from extreme tooth pain caused by a deep cavity or decay, you may be a candidate for root canal treatment, depending on the severity of the damage. Dr. Edirisinghe will determine if you require root canal therapy, or another form of treatment.

Pediatric dentistry, or family dentistry, is a practice area we take seriously at the Milford office of Dr. Edirisinghe. Proper oral hygiene and treatment is imperative in the early stages of life, so as to prevent oral health problems in the future. Parents should bring children to Dr. Edirisinghe for their first dental visit when the teeth erupt. Our courteous staff is trained to treat young patients in a thoughtful manner that puts children at ease, while still promoting the importance of good oral health.

Comprehensive dental care is a unique quality of our dental practice. We specialize in virtually all aspects of adult and child dentistry. Not only will Dr. Edirisinghe and her team provide exceptional dental care, but you will also be put at ease no matter which procedure you require.
