Restorative & Preventive Dentistry

We are pleased to offer high-quality restorative dentistry at our practice. Restorative dentistry is a specific branch of dentistry that is focused on restoring the health and function of your smile following tooth damage, tooth decay, or tooth loss. We offer a number of restorative dental options to meet your individual dental needs. Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, we are here to provide you with the restorative dentistry solutions you need. We also offer options for restoring significantly decayed or damaged teeth.

Dental Bridges
Fixed bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Not only can fixed dental bridges fill the gaps left by missing teeth, they also restore function to the bite and improve the cosmetic appeal of your smile.

Tooth Extractions
Some patients may need to have a permanent tooth (or teeth) extracted. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function.

Dental Crowns
Our dentist uses a dental crown (also known as a cap) as a restoration treatment that completely encloses a tooth, effectively restoring its original size and shape

Laser Cavity Detection
Our practice is equipped with DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection technology to help us improve your oral health. This advanced dental laser can help us discover small or hidden caries (cavities) that are invisible to the naked eye.

Dentures
A denture is a removable appliance created to replace missing teeth. Dr. Mathison’s dentures will help keep your natural teeth and mouth in good form when any teeth are missing.

TMJ Treatment
The TMJ is the temporomandibular joint, or the joint that connects the lower jaw to the rest of the head. The term “TMJ” is often used to refer to TMJ disorder, also called TMD, which occurs when the jaw joint becomes stressed, injured, or misaligned.

Root Canal Therapy
Commonly called a root canal, Our root canal therapy is an excellent restorative treatment option because it restores function to the mouth and tooth without causing problems with any adjacent teeth.

Dental Sealants
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that our doctor may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth.

When you visit our dental office, our caring doctor will carefully examine your smile. Based on this examination, our doctor will be able to provide you with the best possible recommendations for restoring your smile. Through restorative dentistry, you can gain or regain a smile that is healthy, functional, and beautiful once again. Our restorative dentistry options are comfortable and natural looking, so you can feel confident in how your smile looks and functions. Gain the confidence you need to smile, speak, eat, and laugh effortlessly again! If you would like to learn more about restorative dentistry, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We are eager to help you love your smile.

The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.

Proudly accommodating patients in the West Fargo and Fargo, North Dakota community, including South Fargo, Horace, Osgood, Deer Creek, and Eagle Run.
