Caring for your teeth and gums is a vital part of a fulfilling life. A radiant smile not only radiates beauty but reflects your overall well-being. Research underscores the connection between oral health and serious illnesses like cardiovascular disease and diabetes. At Appletree Cove Dental, our heartfelt goal is to support you in maintaining excellent oral health, ultimately improving your overall quality of life. From preventive to emergency dentistry, our services are crafted with care. If you're seeking professional dental treatment, rest assured, you've found a place that genuinely cares.
Our practice is deeply rooted in family dentistry, and it brings us immense joy to care for every generation—from the tiniest tots to the wisest grandparents! Our focus is on simple, preventive treatments to keep smiles radiant. A regular appointment involves a gentle professional cleaning and a thorough check-up. For adults, we may recommend an oral cancer screening, while our younger patients might benefit from a fluoride treatment. Should we detect any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, restorative treatment may be advised, ensuring your family's smiles stay bright.

Our restorative dentistry is tailored to address concerns in your teeth, gums, jaw, and bone structure. For minor to moderate decay, a dental filling may be recommended, while substantial damage might call for a dental crown—a tooth-shaped cap that enhances both function and aesthetics. In cases where a tooth is beyond repair, Dr. Mellissa Ilgen performs tooth extractions with utmost care. Tooth loss is more common than you might think, but worry not—we offer various replacement solutions, including bridges, dental implants, and dentures.

We prioritize your oral health and readiness during dental emergencies, understanding the critical impact on your precious smile. If a tooth is knocked out, prompt action is key—scheduling an appointment immediately increases the likelihood of successful reattachment, and Dr. Mellissa Ilgen is always ready to accommodate emergency cases. While a chipped tooth may not always constitute an emergency, severe pain demands immediate attention, indicating the need for swift care. Likewise, cracks or fractures may signal a more serious issue, emphasizing the importance of prompt intervention to safeguard your overall oral health.
