Clinton County Healthy Communities (Clinton County Community Dental Clinic) will organize, develop and implement comprehensive countywide community health improvement. It is the mission of the Clinton County Healthy Communities to provide basic dental care to patients with Dental Medical Assistance, who have government-sponsored or subsidized dental insurance or who fall below the federal poverty guidelines and live within Clinton County and reside within the Keystone Central School District and surrounding counties on a limited basis.
The Clinton County Community Dental Clinic is a non-profit dental clinic. Our doors opened in November 2009. We accept patients from Clinton County and surrounding communities. Our office treats patients of all ages. We currently employ 1 full-time dentist and 2 part-time dentists.
We are proud to partner with the Clinton County United Way
At Clinton County Community Dental Clinic we strive to provide our patients with the best and most complete dental care. Our doctors and staff frequently attend continuing education seminars to learn the latest dental techniques.
Dental X-rays (radiographs) are images of your teeth that our dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. These X-rays are used with low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can help the dentist to identify problems, like cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth.
A dental exam is a checkup of your teeth and gums. Most children and adults should get a dental exam every six months. These exams are important for protecting oral health. Oral health problems can become serious and painful if not treated promptly.
Dental cleaning is a preventative procedure performed by our dental hygienists to maintain or achieve optimum oral health. In a dental cleaning procedure, the hygienist aims to remove the dental plaque and tartar that have accumulated on the teeth to protect them from cavities or dental caries as well as other tooth and gum problems.
Scaling is when your dentist removes all the plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) above and below the gumline, making sure to clean all the way down to the bottom of the pocket. Your dentist will then begin root planing, smoothing out your teeth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth.
A filling is used to treat a small hole, or cavity, in a tooth. To repair a cavity, a dentist removes the decayed tooth tissue and then fills the space with a filling material.
A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that is above the gumline and can be seen in the mouth These teeth can typically be removed easily by loosening the tooth with a lifter or elevator and pulled out of with forceps. This is a quick process, and the healing time is usually pretty fast.
A surgical extraction is a slightly more complex procedure that occurs when a tooth has not yet broken through the gum line, or has not yet fully grown into the mouth. When a surgical extraction is needed, your oral surgeon makes a small incision into your gum in order to access the affected tooth
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that relieves pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth. During the root canal process, the inflamed pulp is removed. The surfaces inside the tooth are then cleaned and disinfected, and a filling is placed to seal the space.
Crown and Bridge
Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Dental crowns can be made out of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics.
