Having good oral health is crucial for the overall health of your body. General and preventative dentistry has been a proven method to ensure good oral health. Prevention dentistry includes frequent brushing and flossing at home as well as routine dental cleanings and check-ups.
It is recommended by the ADA that people with good oral health should visit a dentist twice a year for a routine dental exam and cleaning to maintain a healthy smile. This routine cleaning and check-up protects healthy gums, maintains fresh breath, and allows for early detection of dental caries.
Relax in a comfortable dental chair while your dental professionals take the time to answer your questions and use the most advanced technology to deliver a complete oral examination and thorough dental cleaning.
Along with cavity prevention, our dental professionals are focused on evaluating the health of your gums. Using the latest technology, our team will measure the depth of the pocket, evaluate gum recession, and assess the bone level appearing on the dental x-rays. At your appointment, our team will take the time to discuss the diagnosis of your periodontal health and treatment plan proposal.
Our dental practice is keen on not only your smile, we are devoted to supporting your overall health. We believe that early diagnosis opens the door to future care and treatment. Our dental professionals provide oral cancer screenings as part of your routine dental visit. Oral cancer can develop in several parts of the mouth including lips, gums, roof and floor of the mouth as well as the inner lining of the cheek.
A common condition called bruxism is when one has jaw pain, earaches, headaches which are related to consistent clenching or grinding of the jaw at night or during the day. Our dentists create custom-ft solutions to help with these jaw related issues. Not only will a nightguard help our patients rest easy at night with a relaxed jaw, it also prevents damage to the teeth and gums.
Protecting your teeth does not always relate to brushing, flossing, and attending routine checkups. Sometimes our patients need to guard their teeth during athletic activities. Our dentists fabricate custom-fit dental appliances called Sportsguards or Mouthguards to protect your teeth, gums and jaw from trauma during athletic activities. With this dental appliance, our patients play their favorite sports while ensuring their teeth stay in good condition!
Interesting fact: The procedure most known that dentists perform is a dental filling! If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to serious complications that can be avoided with a simple cavity filling. Our dental office is equipped with the latest technology to deliver natural tooth-colored dental fillings. We ensure both cosmetic appeal and function, using the latest technology and materials that last for many years.
When teeth are decayed or broken beyond repair by a filling, a crown can be used to restore their function. Our providers will remove all decay before fitting a crown on the remaining tooth structure. Our crowns are custom made to match the shape and color of your remaining teeth. With regular care, crowns can preserve your natural tooth structure.
Missing teeth can lead to larger problems for your overall oral health, and our office offers multiple treatments to fix this problem that don’t require oral surgery. A bridge uses crowns on the teeth surrounding the empty space to hold your new teeth in place above the gum line. Alternatively, a removable denture can replace one or more missing teeth to improve appearance and restore functionality.
When bacteria gets into teeth, the result can be a painful infection that requires a root canal to treat the issue. Our providers will remove all decay and clean out the infected nerves, replacing them with material to keep infections from recurring. In order to protect the tooth, a crown will be placed after the root canal is complete. This is the best method to treat the pain and infection and retain the natural tooth.
Wisdom teeth, often called third molars, are found in the very back of your mouth. These molars start to appear in early twenties or late teens. A wisdom tooth becomes impacted when there isn’t enough room for the tooth to grow in or because of the angle of the tooth. Impacted teeth can cause swelling or infection in the gum, or push against the molar tooth. Treatment varies depending on positioning and placement of the tooth. Our dentist will give you recommendations about your wisdom teeth during your routine check-up exam.
