General Dentistry in St. Augustine, FL
Giving our patients a reason to smile
Jeremy Gordon DMD of Gordon Dental Associates has been providing the best dental care to the people of St. Augustine, Florida for years. He and his highly trained team take the needs of their patients seriously, and we are always available to help.
Preventive Exams and General Dentistry
The American Dental Association recommends twice-yearly dental examinations and teeth cleanings. Your St. Augustine dentist agrees with this schedule. If you have oral health conditions, however, we may customize your treatment timeframe to address these issues.
Our general dentistry is designed to restore your oral health when something goes awry. This can include anything from a dental filling for a cavity to a root canal to treat deep decay and infection.
Emergency Dental Appointments in St. Augustine
If you find yourself experiencing extreme pain or have an accident that requires urgent care, we are proud to offer emergency dental appointments. If a tooth is knocked out, make sure you know what to do in order to improve the likelihood of re-implantation by following these tips.
- Collect the tooth, taking care not to handle the root
- Clean the tooth gently under running water
- Place the tooth back in the socket. If this is not possible, secure the tooth in saliva or a cup of warm water
- Contact your dentist in St. Augustine as soon as possible.
We also offer fitting and creation of individualized mouth guards to help prevent accidents from occurring.
Dr. Gordon and his team take extra care to ensure your comfort during any surgical procedure. If you require tooth extraction or are a candidate for dental implants, you do not need to be put on a waiting list for an oral surgeon. We can take care of you right here at Gordon Dental Associates.
If we find after our initial exam that you should ever need a root canal or other type of endodontic procedure, your family dentist can take care of you in the comfort of your dental home. We make sure you are comfortable and relaxed during your procedure.
