I'm a general dentist. What that entails is I can do anything from family, to cosmetic, to surgery, to root canals. We also do things like snore guards for people that have a snoring problem—people that have sleep apnea. Also, we do gum work, and fillings, and veneers, and crowns, and all sorts of things that you hear all the time. The sky's the limit. As long as I am competent, I can do it.
While you can get services such as dental implants at the Midlothian, VA dentist office of Dr. Hood Biggers, we also offer an extensive range of general dentistry services for our patients at Biggers Family Dentistry. Call us at 804-621-2199 to take care of your family’s general dentistry needs, including regular dental cleanings and exams.
Get a Comprehensive Dental Cleaning and Exam
Dr. Biggers teams up with the hygienist in his Midlothian, VA dentist office to give you a truly comprehensive dental exam that addresses all aspects of your oral health. Your teeth get a thorough cleaning both above and below the gumline, which helps prevent tooth decay and gingivitis by keeping harmful bacteria at bay.
Dr. Biggers likes to use the most up-to-date dental technology at Biggers Family Dentistry, and he incorporates it even in routine exams. We use the Planmeca ProMax system to take X-rays, so you don’t need to worry about putting bulky films in your mouth or even moving around as images are taken. Instead, the sophisticated machinery quickly moves around your head to produce the images while you stand still and relax.
Fight Gum Disease with a Deep Cleaning
Healthy gums are the foundation of a great smile. At Biggers Family Dentistry, our treatments for gum disease include dental scaling and root planing. We’ll remove especially stubborn plaque and tartar (scaling), then smooth your tooth roots to make it tougher for bacteria to accumulate (root planing). We’ll administer local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.
Athletic Mouthguards Keep You in the Game
If anyone understands the importance of a well-fitting mouthguard worn during athletic activities, it’s Dr. Biggers. He served as the official dentist of the Richmond Renegades professional hockey team for 15 years.
He can create comfortable, custom mouthguards that will protect the mouths and teeth of your entire family. Custom mouthguards are made of materials that are easy to keep clean and that will stand up to all the abuse you – or your opponents – can dish out.
