Our office cares about your oral health and provides you with the resources to maintain overall health and function of your mouth. We administer exams for regular patients, new patients, patients with emergency issues, specific issues and child exams as well. By receiving regular dental exams and practicing proper dental care at home, you can have a healthy mouth and smile!
Cleanings are important part of a healthy mouth! Our hygienists are specially educated to get rid of tarter and plaque build-up to prevent cavities and other dental issues. After removing the build-up that regular brushing and flossing can leave behind the dentist can get a better look at any dental issues that need to be addressed.
When you receive a dental exam a dentist will check your teeth for signs of decay. The decay on the tooth will cause a cavity and once a cavity is discovered it must be fixed to avoid more serious problems that will cause pain and may lead to the tooth having to be extracted. There are different kinds and sizes of fillings.
Intra Venous Sedation is used to sedate a patient. This is generally used when a patient is having a complex dental procedure such as wisdom tooth extraction. A patient that is sedated will be semi-conscious meaning that they will be able to respond to directions (i.e. “open mouth” or “turn left”) but will have no or very little recollection of the procedure.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction:
The third molars or wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to emerge when we are about 17 – 20 years old. Because our jaws are no longer large enough, wisdom teeth can cause a variety of serious problems and usually need to be removed. The more firmly anchored these teeth become they are harder to remove.
Implants look and feel like real teeth and are used to replace missing teeth as well. This procedure is more complex than a bridge or denture but they do provide more security, help prevent deterioration of the jaw bone and eliminate compromising the healthy teeth.
Crowns, also called caps, are used to restore the size and shape or your tooth following a root canal or when the tooth is beyond the point of repair by a filling.
Bridges and Dentures:
Bridges and dentures are used to replace missing, worn, or broken teeth. These help to prevent future problems with bite alignment and your ability to chew. We offer both partial and complete dentures, as well as many kinds of bridges to suit your needs.
An extraction is the process of removing the tooth from the jawbone. An extraction can be the treatment of a variety of dental issues.
Root Canal Treatment:
Root Canal treatment (also known as endodontic treatment) is used to treat infected nerves within the tooth. This procedure is used to avoid having to extract the tooth while treating the infection thus, saving the tooth.
