Your first visit is all about YOU
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history, and take X-rays of your teeth. Our dentist will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Cleanings and Exams
Regular cleanings are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your visit we will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Conduct an oral cancer screening
- Perform a thorough teeth cleaning
Your appointment will take about 60 minutes. At each appointment we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth's surface.
Visiting our office every six months gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about any questions you may have about your oral health. Please contact our office today to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, are most often made of silver amalgam. The strength and durability of this material makes it useful for situations where restored teeth must withstand extreme forces that result from chewing, often in the back of the mouth.
Composite resins are "tooth colored" fillings. They are often used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, but they can also be on the back teeth depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay
A crown is a “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both.
Crowns are used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. They are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.
Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Your crown is created just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally. With our newest state of the art Cerec we can create your crown in one visit!
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, it looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. A bridge is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be properly cared for. Use a gentle cleanser to brush your dentures, always keep them moist when they’re not in use, and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.
There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. A tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, so it may recommend that it be removed. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.
Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, it may recommended that you replace the extracted tooth
