General, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
Your smile is the first thing many people will notice about you. But in addition to showing your personality and emotions, your smile influences overall health and wellness as well. Study after study has shown that oral health and medical conditions like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and pregnancy complications all share a connection in the form of gum disease. As a family dentist and cosmetic dentist for Moorhead and surrounding areas, Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can help you prevent common oral health problems and enjoy a strong, healthy smile that functions comfortably and looks sensational.
To provide the highest level of general dentistry to our patients, we use digital X-rays to diagnose and design treatment plans. Digital X-rays emit about 80% less radiation than traditional radiography, because your safety is a priority with us. What’s more, general dentist Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can also administer nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) upon request to ease the anxiety of fearful patients. Every year, many patients put off or avoid regular family dental visits entirely because of anxiety. But with nitrous oxide, even the most basic general dentistry procedure can be more comfortable and relaxing.
On top of our great technology and the effective general and cosmetic dentistry services we offer, Skatvold Family Dentistry in Moorhead also offers personalized patient education. Knowing how to effectively care for your teeth is an important part of enjoying good oral health. Our team will help you establish an oral health routine of brushing and flossing that will help you preserve your smile for years to come.
