We provide each patient with a complete diagnosis and treatment plan, including:
Oral Cancer Screening – If you are a tobacco user, you are at a higher risk for developing oral cancer. We are committed to the prevention of oral cancer through the early identification of pre-cancerous conditions, and provide screenings at each preventive care appointment.
Periodontal Examination – Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. We will examine your gums to ensure that if any gum disease is present, it will be detected and treated in its earliest stages.
Caries Exam – During a caries (or cavities) exam, we locate areas of decay on chewing surfaces and between your teeth. We use both a visual exam and x-rays to determine the best treatment plan for your dental needs.
Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the tooth’s natural appearance. Composites are matched closely to your natural tooth color and are virtually undetectable from your non-restored teeth. While they are excellent options for front teeth, they may also be recommended for certain sites on molars. These composite fillings have proven to be stain-resistant and extremely durable.
Made of tooth-colored material, these restorations are bonded to teeth. This strengthens the remaining tooth structure and reduces the likelihood of future fractures. Their strength and color make them a practical choice in many cases.
A crown covers a tooth to help strengthen it and restore it to its natural size and shape. It may be placed to retain a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, to attach a bridge, protect weak or broken teeth from further damage, or restore fractured teeth. Following root canal therapy, a tooth that has been treated with will require a crown to strengthen and support the tooth.
Bridges are one the most popular, traditional methods to permanently replace a missing tooth or teeth. To replace a missing tooth with a bridge, at least one tooth on either side of the missing tooth must be prepared for a crown. Afterwards, a false tooth is joined to the crowns, and the entire structure is permanently cemented to the prepared teeth. Special aids are available to help keep the bridge clean.
Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, and are typically used as part of the restoration process for replacing a single tooth, several missing teeth or as an attachment for complete dentures.
Partial dentures are an option if some healthy teeth are present to support the gums and jawbone. A partial denture, though removable, provides a replacement for missing teeth.
Full dentures are used if there are no natural teeth remaining in the mouth. A full denture covers more of the jaw than a partial denture and is held in place by a natural vacuum in the mouth and/or by adhesive products.
When you no longer have any natural teeth, full dentures are a great, traditional method to help restore the look and function of your smile. Although many patients are successful denture wearers, some may experience difficulties, such as poor stability and the decreased ability to chew. When this occurs, dental implants can be utilized to improve the stability and retention of dentures.
Periodontal Therapy helps control gum disease through a series of 2, 4, or 6 non-surgical dental visits. Remember: Healthy gums never bleed!
