Comprehensive Dental Services

At Waterstone Family Dentistry, the Fuquay Varina family dentist, Dr. Collier offers a wide array of services and treatments for the entire family, including children’s dentistry. Dr. Collier will happily work with you and your schedule, so you receive the personalized attention and commitment you deserve from your dental team at your convenience. From offering flexible scheduling to gentle first visits for both adults and children, we’re ready to join you on the journey towards a healthier, stunning smile. Dr. Collier’s services include the following:

Preventive and Restorative Dentistry:
Enjoying a comfortable, healthy smile is best achieved by visiting our dental office once every six months, so Dr. Collier can closely monitor your oral health with preventive services. Our preventive dentistry includes checkups and cleanings, TMJ and bruxism treatment, and sleep apnea treatment. In addition, if you require treatment that focuses on restoring your mouth to its original state of health and structure, Dr. Collier provides restorative dentistry. These services include dental crowns, onlays, inlays, composite fillings, extractions, root canals, dental bridges, and dentures.

Cosmetic Dentistry:
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on treatments that improve the appearance of your smile. When you think of a beautiful smile, you probably picture whiteness, alignment, and uniformity. To address common smile imperfections, we can offer a number of cosmetic treatments. We can brighten your smile with KoR Whitening or transform the appearance of your entire smile with porcelain veneers. Snap-on-Smiles provide an esthetically pleasing solution to misalignment. We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Collier. She will examine your smile and discuss your options for setting you on track toward the smile you desire.

Dental Implants:
Dental implants can replace every part of a lost tooth, not just the visible portion. Implants bond with the jawbone tissue for durable, lifelike replacements. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or even secure prosthetics, such as dental bridges and dentures. For more information on our implants, call Waterstone Family Dentistry today.

Same Day and Emergency Dentistry:
Fortunately, at Waterstone Family Dentistry, Dr. Collier offers same day and emergency dentistry. Whether you experience sudden severe discomfort, or even break a tooth, our team is prepared to fit you into the day’s schedule, so we can quickly guide you back to comfort. Remember to remain calm and ask for assistance from a loved one if necessary.

Periodontal Treatment:
Periodontal disease refers to illness of the structures that support your teeth, including gums, ligaments, and bones. If you experience bleeding gums, red or purple gums, tender gums, chronic bad breath, loose teeth, or receding gumlines, you may require periodontal treatment. Dr. Collier provides comfortable, gentle combination treatment. She will prescribe Perio Protect, a system that includes wearing prescription medicine in a comfortable Perio Tray®. She will also perform scaling and root planing, also referred to as “deep cleaning” to remove existing plaque, while returning you to excellent oral health.

TMD Treatment:
Everyone has two temporomandibular joints, or TMJs. These are your jaw joints, located on either side of your head. The TMJ is the point at which your lower jaw connects with the rest of your cranium. TMJs allow you to open your mouth and move your jaw from side to side. If your TMJ works improperly, we refer to this as TMJ dysfunction, or TMD. At Waterstone Family Dentistry, we offer non-invasive oral appliance therapy to improve your jaw comfort.

Sedation Options:
Dr. Collier will choose a pill that you will take orally before your visit for a deeper sense of tranquility. You will remain aware of verbal cues throughout your appointment, but you may not remember all of the events once the medicine is out of your system. This type of sedation is particularly beneficial for patients with severe anxiety, or a dislike of needles. You will need a friend or loved one to drive you home after your visit.

Nitrous Oxide:

Commonly referred to as “laughing gas” because it often creates a sense of euphoria, nitrous oxide is a gentle, safe option. We offer nitrous oxide to nearly all of our patients, including children. You will remain fully aware of what is happening around you during your visit, but you will feel relaxed. Dr. Collier can adjust the amount of nitrous oxide you receive throughout your visit. In addition, nitrous oxide wears off quickly. You will be able to drive yourself home after a procedure.

Root Canals:

During a root canal treatment, we will use an anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding area. We may also administer nitrous oxide or oral sedation for enhanced comfort. Dr. Collier will create a small hole in your tooth, and will clean out the infected pulp. She will then fill the opening with a dental filling. If necessary, Dr. Collier will complete the procedure by covering your tooth with a dental crown. A crown restores your tooth’s structure, and protects your tooth from future bacterial invasion.

Extractions:

Your tooth may become damaged beyond repair, or your wisdom teeth may become impacted or develop poorly. Whatever the reason, Dr. Collier will work efficiently and gently to remove your tooth while keeping you comfortable. By choosing an extraction, you will allow us to remove the source of your discomfort while protecting your surrounding teeth and gums.

Sleep Apnea Therapy:

For patients who identify as heavy snorers, and find they suffer from severe daily fatigue, sleep apnea therapy may help. This sleep disorder is characterized by nightly episodes in which your air passages become blocked, causing you to wake briefly, gasping for air. With simple therapy that includes wearing a comfortable oral appliance, you can often achieve open airways and comfortable breathing for restful nights of sleep.
