General Dental Services - Newberry, SC

Comprehensive Dentistry, Customized to You

Your Dental Home in Newberry, SC

At Bela Family Dentistry, general dentistry has many meanings. It means that each of us is a general dentist in Newberry, SC with the wide-ranging training necessary to treat a variety of conditions for patients of all ages. It also means that we place a special emphasis on proactive, preventive care rather than simply treating dental issues as they occur. This includes routine exams, screenings, and cleanings to prevent problems or identify and treat them early on before they become serious. We’ll also instruct you on how to maintain your teeth through proper home care. When additional treatment is necessary, we tailor it to your needs instead of trying to push a one-size-fits-all solution. In providing these services, our aim is to build a strong relationship that enables us to maintain your oral health for many years to come. This will allow you to enjoy a quality of life that’s difficult to achieve when your teeth are unhealthy. Below are some of the essential services we offer.

General Dentistry Services Overview

Preventive Care
Dental exams give us the chance to assess your current dental health and take steps to keep it in top shape. This may include looking for cavities with DIAGNOdent™, a non-invasive cavity detection machine. We’ll help you avoid future cavities with fluoride treatments and sealants, which cover the teeth to prevent decay. Routine exams sometimes include x-rays to check on the condition of your teeth on the inside and underneath. Our in-house, low-radiation cone beam CT scanner enables us to do imaging with a fraction of the radiation output of typical x-ray equipment. Our exams will also include oral cancer screenings to ensure we catch warning signs before they progress.

Restorative Dentistry
Whether due to minor or severe oral trauma, root canal treatment, or years of grinding your teeth, we can restore your teeth to proper function and health with restorative dentistry. We make all our crowns and bridges in-house with a cutting-edge milling machine and all our fillings and bonding use tooth-colored resin. No matter if you’re correcting a small chip or crack or if you’re replacing an entire tooth, our restorative treatments will meet your functional and health goals as well as your unique esthetic needs. Count on your dentist in Newberry, SC to restore your smile!

TMJ Treatment
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, sometimes accompanied by a popping sound in your jaws, can be an indication of misaligned jaw joints and/or teeth. We can correct these with mouthguards, which we’ll customize to your specifications. These prevent you from grinding and clenching your teeth and allow tense facial and jaw muscles to relax. We also offer several proven orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth, reduce grinding and clenching, and reestablish comfortable jaw movement. These include discreet orthodontics solutions that are virtually invisible but provide the same reliable results as traditional metal braces.

Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is more than snoring—it’s a condition that causes you to stop breathing while you’re sleeping, often multiple times each night. The cause is usually soft tissues blocking your airway. We treat this potentially serious condition with custom-made mouthguards that keep your mouth in a position that doesn’t allow your soft tissues to impede breathing. We’ve adopted the six-step protocol developed by acclaimed prosthodontist Dr. Jeff Rouse and taught by Spear® Education, renowned leaders in dental education, to create an individualized solution to your sleep apnea problem. With it, you can enjoy higher quality, more restful sleep each night and greater energy during the day!
