Dental Procedures
Prescott Valley, AZ

At our practice, we perform a wide variety of services to help you get the smile you deserve. By leveraging today's advanced techniques and technology, Dr. Andrew Zeiger and Dr. David Frausto can restore your beautiful smile.

Whether you need to get a tooth filled, have crooked teeth or need a complete smile makeover, we can offer a treatment plan that's right for you.

Preventive Dentistry

Professional Cleanings, Exams and X-Rays
Checkups are recommended every 6 months for a healthy mouth, and every 3-4 months for those with periodontal disease. Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities. X-rays should be taken between every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.

Bad Breath
Halitosis can be caused by diet, poor oral hygiene, a condition called dry mouth, or a range of medical issues from relatively minor to more serious — from post-nasal drip to gastrointestinal or liver problems.
Flossing is very simple and will only add a few extra minutes to your oral hygiene routine. Gently position the floss between your teeth and wrap it around the tooth like a C-shape, work it up and down, taking care to get the entire tooth from top to bottom.

Oral Cancer Screening
Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease
Gum disease occurs when plaque builds up below the gum line and starts to pull the gums away from the roots of the teeth. It has been linked to diabetes and heart disease.

Bruxism & Mouthguards
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.

Sealants are generally used to help prevent tooth decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth (molars). The natural grooves of these teeth can trap food that can resist casual brushing and rinsing. If left in place, the trapped food allows bacteria to multiply, eventually causing tooth decay and requiring costly attention.

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Bridges
Bridges are fixed (non-removable) appliances and are an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

Dental Crowns
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure, giving the tooth a longer life than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.

Full & Partial Dentures
Full Dentures are removable prostheses of white plastic teeth in a pink gum-colored plastic base that rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed. A partial denture is a removable appliance held in place by gripping the remaining healthy teeth, usually with metal clasps or wires.

Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dentists use both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.

Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are considered a conservative alternative to dental crowns. They are ideal for teeth that are not sufficiently damaged enough to require a dental crown, but too damaged for a filling. These restorations are beneficial in both a functional and esthetic way.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution.

Tooth Extraction
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.

TMJ Therapy
When your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is misaligned, you may experience headaches, extreme pain in the jaw, and ear or sinus infections.

Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that typically come into a patient's mouth. Sometimes they are problematic and other times they are just fine. The typical age for the development of these teeth is between 17 and 25 years of age, which is why they have been given the name "wisdom teeth," as you receive them during your wiser years.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Bonding
Bonding is a procedure in which we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained.

Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel, and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Limited Orthodontics

Space Maintainers
When a primary tooth has been lost, but the permanent tooth is not ready to come in, Dr. Zeiger or Dr. Frausto can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting and maintain the space using a spacer. This is a metal device the is placed between teeth to fill in the empty space that will be later occupied with a permanent tooth.

Using a series of clear plastic aligners, we straighten your teeth. Our dentists at Bradshaw Family Dental can create a digital image of your teeth in their current positioning and then design an image of where you want the end result. These images are sent to a dental lab where your series of aligners are created. This system is invisible, quick, and hassle free.

Head Gear
We can make simple dental corrections using Head Gear. This system can be designed to slow or stop the upper jaw from growing, helping prevent an overbite. It can also be used to make more space for teeth that are coming in. Most frequently worn at night, we can make a significant impact with head gear.

We now offer nightguards that are specially designed to prevent the effects from thumbsucking.

Metal braces can be placed according to your needs. Some patients only require a limited number of brackets, or correction is needed on a limited time basis.

6 Month Braces
This form of braces are specifically designed for your front teeth. More of a cosmetic technique than for correcting dental issues, this is a fast and simple form of braces that can enhance the appearance of your front teeth giving you a more aesthetic look.

Oral Surgery

Bone Grafting
The largest problem with bone loss is the inability to place dental implants to replace the missing teeth. If dental implants are not an option, you are generally left with dentures as your only choice. Today's technology has made it possible for us to help your bone grow back, allowing you to avoid any change to your facial features, making you a candidate for dental implants and to enhance your overall oral health with bone grafting.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution.

Guided Dental Implants
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate, as long as certain parameters are followed. At Bradshaw Family Dental, we use 3D cone beam technology to eliminate any variables which can cause a dental implant to fail. With our cone beam technology, we are able to visualize exactly where the implant will be placed in your jaw.

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
There are a variety of reasons for an unpleasing smile, whether you have excessive gum tissue that makes your teeth look shorter or gum recession that makes your teeth look longer, Dr. Andrew Zeiger can perform the proper technique to resolve the issue.

Tooth Extractions
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.

Gum Grafting
Your gums play many important roles in your mouth. One of these roles is in the appearance of your smile. If your gums have receded, your teeth begin to appear longer, which can cause your smile to suffer, even if your teeth are otherwise perfect.

Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that will help you relax. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose.

Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedation dentistry allows Dr. Andrew Zeiger and Dr. David Frausto to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who avoid the dentist out of fear.

Additional Services

Biomimetic Dentistry
We are able to restore your teeth using Biomimetic Dentistry. This complicated term simply means to copy what you already naturally have. Using less invasive techniques and materials, we can rebuild fractured teeth opposed to the more traditional methods of placing dental crowns.

Pediatric Dental Services
We believe that happy smiles come from healthy teeth, and love sharing our philosophy in a fun and engaging manner with your child! We have a fun and engaging play area, kid-friendly technology like digital x-rays and nitrous oxide (we call it silly air!).

Laser Dental Treatment
The use of laser treatment in dentistry is a relatively new technology, but studies have found that it can help greatly in treating gum disease when used in conjunction with scaling and root planing. Lasers are equipped with different wavelengths to fit specific levels of treatment. It is used to remove inflamed gum tissue from around the root of the tooth in order to allow Dr. Andrew Zeiger to begin the scaling and root planing procedures. It may also be used to remove tartar buildup on teeth. Lasers can also be used to clean deep periodontal pockets of infection.
