- Removables: partials, custom dentures

- Implant: Tooth replacement solutions from single tooth implants to implant supported dentures Cosmetic: porcelain crowns and veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, cosmetic dentures
- Cleanings – every time patients come into our office at South Knox Dental, our dental professionals will provide a thorough cleaning of the gums and teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus from the surfaces.
- X-rays – some conditions occur within the smile and are not visible during a physical examination. This is when our team may use dental x-rays to provide imaging of what is happening below the gum line and within the teeth. This is a popular diagnostic tool for dentists.
- Evaluations – a physical evaluation is also performed. During cleaning, the dental hygienist will make note of any areas of concern within the patient’s mouth. These concerns will be relayed to Dr. Serrano for further examination.
- Dental fillings – if areas of decay have been spotted, dental fillings may be placed. Fillings are used to fill an area of decay and seal the tooth off, keeping it from being exposed and susceptible to infection. Fillings can be used on small to moderate areas of decay.
- Education: We invest time educating you on dental health and spend time showing you what we see, so you can make the best decision for your specific needs and smile goals.
