Complete and Partial Dentures
For those who are missing one or more teeth, we offer complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are designed for those who are missing all of their teeth and partial dentures can be used by those who have some natural teeth remaining. We also offer metal-free, flexible partials (Valplast partials) for those who desire them. In addition, when your dentures need to be adjusted, we proudly provide both denture repairs and relines. If you would like to learn more about dentures or pain-free dentistry, please call our Worcester, MA dental practice soon.
It is sometimes necessary to extract (pull) one or more teeth in order to maintain your oral health. Extraction is often our last resort in maintaining your oral health. If at all possible, another procedure, such as root canal, will be suggested to restore the health of your mouth. When necessary, extractions are handled with gentle care. We can comfortably extract significantly damaged or impacted teeth in the office. For more information on extractions or how we cater to cowards, please contact our Worcester, MA dental practice soon.
For teeth that have minor flaws, such as small cracks, chips, or decay, our Worcester, MA dentist, Dr. Patel, will usually place a white (non-mercury) filling. We use only non-mercury (tooth-colored) fillings in order to provide the best aesthetic results for your smile. Your tooth-colored filling can be placed in a single appointment at our office, where the dentist will remove the compromised portion of the teeth, clean the tooth, and then place your non-toxic filling. Call today for more information on gentle dentistry, non-mercury fillings, and restorative dentistry!
Non-Surgical Gum Therapy
Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection that plagues the gums and tissue surrounding the teeth. Gum disease is a leading cause of most adult tooth loss and three out of every four people suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease is caused by an accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. When left untreated, gum disease has been linked to many serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. At our Worcester, MA dental practice, we aim to treat gum disease through various methods, including deep cleaning services such as scaling and root planing. With our non-surgical gum therapy, we can restore your oral health and help prevent tooth loss. For more information on gum disease or your treatment options, please call our office soon.
Preventive Dentistry for Children
For our youngest patients, we provide preventive care to help them prevent tooth decay and learn how to keep it from hurting their beautiful smiles.

If a tooth becomes significantly decayed or infected, and the damage has reached the pulp of the tooth, our restorative dentist, Dr. Patel, may perform a root canal to restore both health and function. Root canals usually require one or two appointments at our Worcester, MA dental practice, although additional appointments may be necessary if a crown is to be placed over the treated tooth. Once the root canal procedure is complete, function and health will be restored to the tooth and mouth. We invite you to contact our office soon to learn more about root canals, reconstructive dentistry, and how we cater to cowards.
To help protect the back molars against tooth decay, our dentist may place dental sealants. Sealants are tooth-colored or clear coverings that create a barrier over the grooves and pits of the back teeth’s chewing surfaces. This barrier helps to block out the food and germs that cause decay by creating a smooth, easy to clean surface. Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants. Call our dental practice in Worcester, MA today to schedule your appointment and begin learning more about preventive dentistry and how every treatment is designed to cater to your needs.
