Cleanings and Exams
We have found that a checkup every six months is usually what it takes to maintain your oral health. At each check up, your hygienist will freshen up your mouth with a thorough cleaning, and then our doctor will examine and talk to you about your teeth and your overall oral health.
There comes a point when a problematic tooth is beyond repair, and it needs to be removed so that the surrounding teeth are not negatively affected. Our doctors use anesthetics to avoid discomfort during and after the extraction, and once your mouth is healed, we will go over your options and help you decide how to replace the tooth.
Cavities are very common, and if we can address a cavity early enough, sometimes you may not even need a filling. But when cavities are not addressed, they can lead to more serious dental problems. If you think you might have a cavity, call us now to schedule an appointment.
Gum Disease Therapy
Did you know research has shown that gum disease has been linked to certain heart problems, pregnancy complications, respiratory diseases, osteoporosis, and even depression and poor aging? If you have gum disease, we want to treat it for you, but we also want to teach you some easy steps to prevent it in the future.
Getting you back to normal.
When a tooth is seriously damaged, it usually requires a root canal to clean up everything below the surface to reduce the chance of infection and decay. In addition, we may need to install a crown over the damaged tooth to bring it back up to par and protect it from additional damage.
To fill a gap of missing teeth, we may suggest dentures. These are removable prosthetic teeth that are connected to each other to make one piece. We can make partial dentures for just a few missing teeth or complete dentures for someone who has lost all of their teeth.
A great way to replace a missing tooth, dental implants are strong and permanent allowing you to eat all types of food and brush and floss as you normally would.
A makeover for your smile.
Our whitening services are both extremely advanced and surprisingly efficient. We can bring your teeth 3 shades whiter in less than 20 minutes! And if you would rather whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home, we can give you a clinical grade whitening kit to take with you.
If you have noticeable imperfections with your smile, we may suggest veneers as a solution. They are usually made of porcelain, and they simply slide over your existing teeth, providing a cover that looks beautiful and shields your teeth..
Many times we will use tooth bonding to fix minor imperfections such as small chips or stains on teeth. With this process, we prepare a composite material to match the shade and quality of your tooth, and after roughening the exterior a bit, we adhere the bonding material directly to the tooth and seal everything up with a special curing light technology.
Implants usually fall under the “Restorative Dentistry” category, but they are often necessary for cosmetic procedures. In any case, our dental team is completely capable of taking care of your implant needs.
This alternative to braces uses clear, flexible plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and are practically invisible. They are removable when you need to eat, brush, or floss, and every so often you exchange the aligner for a slightly different size. Over time, your teeth are slowly straightened, just without the metal, rubberbands, and headgear.
Six Month Smiles
This innovative form of braces is a great option for minor orthodontic adjustments. With tooth-colored wires and clear brackets, these braces are barely visible. The start-to-finish process is typically much faster than conventional braces, usually lasting six months and sometimes even shorter.
