Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.

A beautiful smile is one of the most sought after cosmetic features in the world. People from all backgrounds and professions want a bright, straight smile, and we are here to help turn that desire into reality. Whether through minor adjustments or major treatment plans, our cosmetic dentistry practice aims to improve your smile and help you build confidence in the way your teeth look.
Botox / Fillers
For years Botox has helped so many men and women successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. As people age, they long for a more youthful appearance. Botox is able to give them this.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle is then not able to contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used on the forehead lines, around the eyes, and frown lines. Typically wrinkles are caused as we age, but they are also brought on by sun damage and gravity.
We use mouthguards as a way to protect your teeth from grinding. Many people cause a lot of damage when they grind their teeth at night. Mouthguards are also used during sports activities since many people like to clench their teeth. Mouthguards also protect your teeth and jaw in case you get hit in the face.
At Morrilton Family Dental we are proud to offer treatment for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ, to provide our patients with relief. TMJ is caused by inflammation within the temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull.
Cleanings and Gum Therapy
Though periodontal disease can affect your health and life, most people don’t do much to ensure they have healthy teeth.
For this reason, it is important to have regular dental cleanings to make sure your smile is healthy. If you get diagnosed with periodontal disease, we are here to help. We will do a thorough cleaning to remove the tartar and other buildup on your teeth and underneath your gums. There are times when additional treatment is necessary, like antibacterial mouthwash, oral antibiotics, or antibiotics placed on your trouble areas.
We truly believe in starting children off right when it comes to their dental health. It is our goal to ensure that each visit goes well so that they think of the dentist’s office as a good place. Our entire staff is wonderful with children, allowing them to relax and get their teeth done.
Our dentists and staff have received extra training for primary teeth. Our goal is to protect children’s teeth so they can eat and talk correctly. We will do whatever we can to help your child have a bright smile.
Endodontics is a dental specialty, dealing with the dental pulp. When the dental pulp is infected or diseased, it is important to perform treatment in order to have healthy teeth and a healthy mouth.
The most common endodontic treatment is a root canal, though we also deal with cracked teeth and numerous forms of dental trauma. We will do everything we can to protect your dental pulp so you can keep your teeth.
Invisalign® is a wonderful, modern alternative treatment to braces. You can straighten your teeth without installing metal in your mouth. Instead, we use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation or anything else that traditional braces can cause.
