At Edina Dental Care, Dr. Michael Kratz is delighted to serve patients from Edina and surrounding communities. We welcome new patients seeking quality preventive and restorative dentistry.

If you have developed a cavity, lost a filling, broken a tooth, or are observing other forms of dental damage, it is important to have the problem diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. An immediate appointment can make the difference between a simple restoration or more extensive treatment—and the difference between having a vital, healthy tooth for your lifetime or being faced with tooth replacement.

Whenever you come in for an exam or dental cleaning, we will take a thorough look at all your teeth to find signs of dental decay (caries), excessive wear and cracks in the enamel, and other oral health problems. The latest digital x-ray technology, surgical magnifying glasses, and laser fluorescence aid Dr. Kratz in making a thorough diagnosis. You will be able to see close-up images of your mouth and individual teeth on the chairside computer monitor.

If a dental cavity is found, a simple tooth-colored composite filling is usually all that is needed. The composite resin used for dental fillings comes in a range of natural shades, and Dr. Kratz can select the color that matches the surrounding tooth structure. This way, when you smile and laugh, your fillings are not visible.
