At Topeka Dentistry, our focus is on happy, healthy smiles. 

We provide a gentle, caring touch for your baby, toddler, teenager, or elderly family member. Every age represents its unique dental needs and milestones, which is why we tailor every patient's care to their smile. 

We Use Preventive Dentistry to Protect Your Smile

Your teeth should last a lifetime, but factors like age, genetics, injury, and poor oral hygiene can open the door to infection, tooth decay, and other dental issues that can blow up into dental emergencies.

Your preventive dentists, Dr. Peterson and Dr. Rutherford focus on patient education and the importance of oral hygiene to help patients enjoy optimal oral health. During your dental cleaning and exam, we look for signs of gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, and other issues so we can provide early, conservative treatment. The earlier we can treat you, the less invasive—and costly—dental procedures can be. The longer you wait to fix an oral health issue, the more extensive and complex the treatment is likely to be. 

Part of our program to keep your teeth and gums healthy includes:

  • Dental cleanings
  • Dental exams
  • Patient education
  • Gum disease treatments
  • Dental bonding
  • Sealants or fluoride treatments

If you noticed bleeding or swollen gums, you might have gum disease that we can easily treat in its early stages. This is one disease that should not be ignored; untreated periodontitis can damage your gums and bones and lead to tooth loss. 

Restorative Dentistry to Bring Back Your Smile

At Topeka Dentistry, we do everything we can to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Still, some circumstances require dental treatment to restore and protect your teeth. 

From broken, chipped, cracked, decayed, or missing teeth, we are involved in every step of the way. From assessment, making impressions of your smile, working with state-of-the-art dental labs, using high-quality dental materials—we are committed to restoring your smile. 

Whether you have decayed, broken, infected, or missing teeth, we work with only the best custom dental labs and high-quality, brand-name dental materials and products to restore health and beauty to your smile.

Our restorative dentists in Topeka, KS give patients back their healthy, happy smiles using the following dental treatments: 

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental crowns
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants

We work hard to keep your natural teeth, but in some instances, we may recommend a  root canal or dental extraction to keep your mouth safe. No patient wants to hear that they may require either, but we ensure that all patients are comfortable, relaxed, and pain-free throughout the process. 

In some cases, our dentists may recommend a root canal or tooth extraction if it's in your best interest. If we do, you can be confident that we use the latest dental technology and potent local anesthetics to make your procedure as efficient and comfortable as possible.

Fix Any Smile Flaws with Cosmetic Dentistry

At Topeka Dentistry, we want our patients to look their best. Our cosmetic treatments always begin with an assessment of your oral health to ensure you have a good foundation. Once we're satisfied that your teeth and gums are healthy, we can enhance your appearance. For example, we can use dental bonding to fill in chipped or cracked teeth, and porcelain crowns can protect large cavities or damaged teeth. 

Our cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Invisalign clear braces
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Dental crowns

Drs. Rutherford and Peterson will go over your smile needs and create a detailed smile treatment plan that will allow you to achieve your goals.
