Teeth Cleanings

Twice a year, you should schedule a routine dental cleaning. During this visit, one of our dental hygienists will remove plaque from your teeth, especially from places where your brush can’t reach, such as underneath the gum line and in-between teeth. We will then clean your teeth and apply fluoride to help protect your teeth once you leave the office.

Fluoride is a relatively recent but important advancement in dental and oral health. Studies consistently show that a moderate but consistent exposure of teeth to fluoride helps strengthen and rebuild tooth structure, and helps prevent future decay.

Root Canals

A root canal procedure is a method we use to address dental issues when decay has reached the innermost part of your tooth, known as the pulp. What we do is carefully remove this damaged pulp, reshaping the canals within your tooth, and then filling them with a strong material to reinforce the tooth’s structure.

When a cavity becomes too extensive for a regular filling, we turn to root canal therapy, also known as endodontics. This specialized procedure saves the tooth, maintaining its strength and integrity, and avoiding the need for extraction.

Early Care

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your child in to see us by his/her first birthday. Though this may sound early, we can teach you proper pediatric oral hygiene techniques, check for cavities, and watch for developmental problems.

Various forms of tooth decay can affect babies and small children. Early Childhood Caries (tooth decay) can develop rapidly, progressing from the hard, outer enamel layer of a tooth into the softer, inner dentin in six months or less. Most of all, we want to make sure your child has a positive experience at our office and will be a regular visitor for years to come.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to address minor aesthetic concerns such as chipped, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth. This non-invasive procedure offers a cost-effective and efficient solution to enhance the appearance of one’s smile, as the bonding material is skillfully shaped, polished, and bonded to the tooth’s surface, seamlessly blending with the natural teeth for a more harmonious and confident smile.

Crowns and Bridgework

A dental crown or “cap” is a covering that fits over a damaged, decayed or unattractive tooth. It can even replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework.

A crown completely covers a tooth above the gum line. This is in contrast to a dental veneer, which only covers a tooth’s front surface and needs natural tooth structure to support it. Therefore, if a tooth is missing a significant amount of structure above the gum line, a crown would be the restoration of choice.

Dental Implants

Of all the ways modern dentistry has to replace missing teeth, dental implants are by far the best. There is no tooth-replacement option that will give you a longer-lasting result. Implants also help preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost. Loss of bone is one of the major hidden consequences of losing teeth.

A dental implant most often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure used to place an implant is actually quite minor and routine, requiring only local anesthesia in most cases. After a healing period, the implant is topped with a lifelike crown custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a documented success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher than any other tooth-replacement option.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers can be the right treatment for repairing larger chips and cracks, and reshaping teeth.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are a versatile and practical treatment option for patients dealing with partial or complete tooth loss. These prosthetic devices, consisting of artificial teeth set in a comfortable, gum-colored base, can significantly improve a patient’s ability to speak, eat, and smile confidently.

Teeth Whitening

We can help you brighten a faded or discolored smile.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Our goal is to always maintain the natural look of your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings allow us to treat your teeth while not distracting from your smile.

Traditional

Each patient’s orthodontic condition requires a treatment plan based on a specialized diagnosis of the case. The treatment process involves X-rays, dental impressions and photographs. Braces have one aim: to use gentle pressure to move teeth into proper alignment. Treatment time varies depending on age, patient compliance and the severity of the condition. Generally, treatment lasts for 24 months and is facilitated by ideal patient cooperation.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign Clear Aligners represent an innovative and patient-friendly approach to orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is an excellent choice for individuals seeking a discreet and comfortable way to achieve a straighter smile. These custom-made, virtually invisible aligners gradually shift teeth into their desired positions without the inconvenience of traditional braces.

Periodontal (gums) Therapy

Periodontal therapy can take various forms, but the goal is always to restore diseased tissues to health. Gum (periodontal) disease can spread from the gums to the bone that supports the teeth, and may even cause tooth loss in the most severe cases. There are very effective therapies to combat this, ranging from scalings (deep cleanings) that remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from beneath the gum line, to surgical repair of lost gum and bone tissue.

Fillings

Fillings do just what the name implies — seal a small hole in your tooth, i.e., a cavity, caused by decay. This prevents the decay (a bacteria-induced infection) from spreading further into your tooth and, if untreated, continuing on to the sensitive inner pulp (nerve) tissue located in the root canal. Should that happen, you would need root canal treatment.

There are a variety of materials we use to fill teeth these days, but the process of filling a tooth is similar regardless. First, we do a clinical exam of the tooth and, with x-rays, determine the extent of the decay. Then we need to remove the decayed area of the tooth, usually with a dental drill or another handheld instrument. Your tooth will be anesthetized first, so you won’t feel any discomfort. If numbing injections normally provoke anxiety for you, please let us know; we can discuss medication or the use of nitrous oxide, to help with this. After we remove the decay, all debris is cleaned from the tooth, and then the filling material is applied.

Tooth Extractions

As dentists, our main goal is to preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy for as long as possible. There are times, however, when it is in your best interest (or your child’s) to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons.

Perhaps you have a tooth that has been severely damaged by trauma or decay; or an impacted wisdom tooth that may cause trouble for you later on. Maybe your teenager will soon undergo orthodontic treatment and has insignificant space for his adult teeth, referred to as crowding. Or your younger child has a baby tooth that’s stubbornly adhering, even though it’s past time for it to go.

Whatever the reason, tooth extraction is more often than not a very routine procedure. How straightforward this minor surgery is will depend on where the tooth to be extracted is located in the mouth, and what its roots are like. For example, a front tooth with a single straight root is easier to remove than a molar with multiple roots. This is especially true when that molar is a wisdom tooth that is impacted, meaning it is below the surface surrounded by gum tissue and bone. Often, a wisdom tooth is blocked from fully erupting (growing in) by other teeth in its path.

If you smile at me I will understand, ‘cause that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language.
