If you are facing dental extractions or have missing teeth, you might be wondering if you are a candidate for dental implants for tooth replacement. Most patients can qualify for dental implant treatment, but may require additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lifts to ensure the proper results.

We use 3-D cone beam technology to get a clear view of your bone health, dentistry, and location of your teeth so that Dr. Finney can effectively plan your dental implant placement based on the most accurate information available.

Aside from certain medications or health conditions, nothing else should stand in your way when it comes to dental implant treatment. Since we place and restore dental implants right here in our Bloomington, IN dental office, you can count on convenience and great results.

Dental implants are the most lifelike tooth replacement available. They even offer health benefits such as bone retention and bite protection. If you have multiple missing teeth, we can use dental implants to replace all your teeth, or we can use them in tandem with dentures to give you great results.

Contact us to learn more about dental implant placement and restoration at Campus Family Dental.

When you have your first appointment at Campus Family Dental, we think you will notice the difference when it comes to our compassionate and caring team and also the high-quality dental care we provide.

We explain your treatment before we even get started so you know what to expect. We also leave time to answer questions so you feel comfortable with the decisions you make about your dental health.

Our team is extremely gentle and friendly. Their easy-going and professional approach to your care will remind you that you are in good hands while you are with us.

For patients who need a little extra help relaxing, we offer three types of sedation dentistry to make your treatment a relaxing experience.

Nitrous oxide sedation – Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is the mildest form of sedation and enters and leaves your body quickly so you can resume normal activities right away.

Oral sedation dentistry – Prescription medication with doses based on your medical needs, body type, and history with medication will eliminate anxiety and help you relax. You will feel a little groggy after treatment and will need a ride home. 

IV sedation – We work closely with an anesthesiologist in order to provide IV sedation, our highest level of relaxation, right here in our Bloomington, IN dental office.

Did you know that sometimes jaw pain and headaches are related due to a condition known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ?

TMJ or TMJD is a broad description for a wide range of jaw-related issues. Some of the symptoms can include:

  • Clicking joints
  • Popping joints
  • Inability to open or close your jaw completely
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Teeth wear and fractures
  • Sensitivity to cold temperatures
  • Gum recession
  • Bony growths under your tongue (tori)

Symptoms may come and go. For women, symptoms can be hormone related. Research shows a relationship between hormone levels and jaw pain. However, jaw disorders can affect both men and women. While many patients attribute it to stress, sometimes the cause goes much deeper.

We have the latest technology in our Bloomington, IN dental office to assist with the accurate diagnosis and treatment planning of a wide array of jaw disorders. We use splint therapy, occlusal equilibration (minute changes to your dentistry to change the way your bite comes together), and orthodontics to get you the relief you need to get a great night’s sleep and feel more comfortable throughout the day.

If you have a nighttime clenching and grinding habit, we can help with that, too! Wearing a nightguard can protect your teeth and prevent fractures and premature wear.

At Campus Family Dental, we offer full cosmetic dentistry services to assist patients who wish to improve their smiles. Oftentimes, patients think of cosmetic dentistry and feel it may be out of their reach, but many cosmetic dentistry options are quite affordable and can give you confidence in the appearance of your smile.

Your smile is a huge part of who you are. It allows you to express yourself fully, showing friendship, warmth, humor, and love. An investment in cosmetic dentistry is an investment in you!

We offer the following cosmetic services in our Bloomington, IN dental office:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Full smile makeovers
  • Metal restoration replacement
  • Six Month Braces

The best way to get started is to contact our dental office and schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Brandt Finney. He will go over your concerns about your smile, examine your teeth and gums, and provide the cosmetic dentistry treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.

From there, we can discuss the steps necessary to repair, change, and improve your teeth, their alignment, or your current dentistry so that you have an end result that makes you feel great about your appearance.

At Campus Family Dental, we enjoy treating patients of all ages and are committed to the families in our community. Dr. Brandt Finney is experienced at treating patients of all ages and levels of health because we understand that racing all over town from one dentist to another is just not practical in most family’s schedules.

We start seeing kids by one year of age or when the get their first tooth, whichever comes first. This special appointment allows us to communicate with parents on how to best take care of their children’s teeth and what to expect during development. We can also discuss habits such as bottle use and thumb sucking that can impact the future of your child’s health. 

As your little one grows, we will implement the appropriate preventive and restorative treatment to keep your child’s smile comfortable, healthy, and adorable.

We can talk about proper nutrition and best practices when it comes to home care.
