General Dentistry & Regular Dental Examinations In Mundelein, IL

It’s recommended that you visit your Mundelein & Hawthorn Woods general dentist every six months for a regular check-up. During these check-ups, Dr. Markiewicz will examine your teeth and gums to check for any signs of decay or disease. Additionally, he may take dental X-Rays to take get a more detailed picture of your oral health. Finally, to conclude your general dentistry check-up, Dr. Markiewicz will provide you with oral hygiene instructions and suggestions to help you continue to care for your teeth at home.

Root Canals

A root canal is a general dentistry procedure that extracts decayed or damaged tissue from inside a tooth and replaces the removed tissue with a strengthened filler. Root canals are performed when there is an injury, severe case of decay, or infection in the tooth pulp.

Since these issues can cause significant damage to your tooth structure if left untreated, it’s important that you schedule an appointment to receive yours as soon as your Mundelein dentist tells you that it’s medically necessary. Most root canals can be completed in one visit to our Mundelein dentist office, though in some cases, you may require a follow-up appointment.

Tooth Wear From Grinding & Other Causes

Tooth wear occurs most often when you grind or clench your teeth at night, but can also be caused or exacerbated by consuming acidic foods and beverages or by brushing your teeth too harshly. During your bi-annual dental checkups, your Mundelein general dentist can recommend at-home and in-office treatment options to help manage and remedy these conditions.

Sleep Apnea

Your trusted Mundelein and Hawthorn Woods general dentist is committed not only to caring for your teeth, but also to contributing to your overall well-being. Sleep apnea can cause excessive fatigue, irritability, and a host of other unpleasant and unhealthy symptoms. In addition to helping you develop at-home strategies to manage the symptoms of your sleep apnea, Dr. Markiewicz, and our team of dental experts can also perform in-office procedures to help you reset your sleep schedule and reclaim your health and energy.

Periodontal Therapy

A healthy smile doesn’t stop with your teeth - your gums and jaw bone also play a vital role in keeping your smile healthy and bright! Periodontal therapy includes general dentistry services such as crown lengthening surgeries, dental implants, and gum grafting. At home, you can also maintain your periodontal health by brushing and flossing your teeth every day, avoiding tobacco, and eating a nutritious diet that’s low in sugar. And be sure to visit us every six months for a general dental check-up!

Dentistry For Kids

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit by the time they’re one year old. It’s important not only that you bring your child in to our dental office so that they can learn proper brushing techniques and so that we can check for tooth decay and cavities, but also so that you can help your child develop a positive relationship with their dentist, which will help them maintain good oral health for their entire lives! Dr. Markiewicz is proud to be Mundelein’s trusted family dentist.
