General & Preventive Dentist in Temple

Your unique smile is an important part of your health, quality of life and personality. Our team will partner with you by providing personalized care to maintain or improve your oral health needs. As experienced general dentists, Dr. Fossum and Dr. Elmore provide a wide range of dental treatments to keep you smiling for years to come.

Our general and preventative services include:

We recommend each patient complete a dental cleaning every six months with our hygiene team to prevent minor dental problems from becoming serious ones like periodontal disease. Severe cases of gum disease are no match for LANAP, a specialized laser therapy that treats gum disease and promotes periodontal health. If you snore or suffer from sleep apnea, Dr. Fossum can help you improve the quality of your sleep with a custom-fitted oral appliance. We can also alleviate TMJ discomfort with non-surgical therapies that ease stressed jaw muscles and promote optimal function.

Review our general and preventative services, and then call our dental office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Fossum or Dr. Elmore. We give Temple and surrounding areas customized care for fantastic smiles.
