• Maintain a Healthy Mouth with General Dentistry in Decatur Illinois

    In Decatur, Illinois, Russ Proesel, DDS, has one goal: to help keep your mouth healthy with general dentistry. For more than 30 years, our dental practice has been helping people with their smiles. We provide advice to keep your teeth and gums healthy and maintain your smile through regular checkups. Below are some of the ways we can help get you back on the right track to healthy teeth.

  • Dental Sealants

    Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to prevent tooth decay. The sealant forms a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.

  • Tooth Extractions

    Sometimes a tooth is just too damaged to save or it will cause more harm if it stays in. In these situations, we will remove the tooth. Wisdom teeth are a common extraction example.

  • Fluoride Treatments

    Fluoride treatment is applied at the end of your cleaning appointment. Your teeth will absorb the fluoride to help keep them strong. 

  • Fillings

    When your tooth develops a cavity, we can fix it with a simple procedure. We will drill the cavity away and insert a filling to help protect the tooth. 

  • Cleaning

    Come see us every six months for routine cleaning. Regular cleanings are important to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up along your gum lines, as well as in between your teeth.

  • X-rays

    Dental x-rays are used to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can spot oral health problems in the earlier stages, such as cavities, gum disease, oral infections, and some forms of tumors.
