Dental Exams and Cleanings
One of the most important parts of your oral health care are regular dental cleanings and exams. We encourage you to visit our dentists every six months to receive this routine preventive treatment.
Pediatric dentistry emphasizes proper care and maintenance of primary teeth, which are critical to helping children develop good chewing habits and proper speech production, and hold the places of the permanent teeth. The other goal of pediatric dentistry is to help children feel comfortable in a dental office and develop positive associations with visiting the dentist.
Dental filling are most commonly used to treat cavities, but they are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are a fixed solution to missing or damaged teeth. A crown is used when a large amount of tooth structure is damaged or fractured. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
A root canal can be completed to treat dental pain and save your tooth. It is often performed when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During a root canal, the nerve and pulp are removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth could also become infected and an abscess may form.
In most cases it is preferred to save your natural teeth, however if a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, an extraction may be necessary. Our dentists have extensive experience in performing extractions and will ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Dental implants are titanium screws that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They may also be used to improve retention and stability of dentures. The implants are placed into the bone and allowed to heal until the implant and bone have integrated (osseointegration). Once osseointegration has occurred, a crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to the implant. We work closely with specialists to ensure a successful outcome.
Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures
If you are missing some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace those teeth. Dentures can improve your quality of life by improving your speech and your ability to eat. Dentures can be made to look like your natural teeth, and they also support the cheeks and lips for a more youthful appearance.
