These are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time you visit our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help your smile stay healthy.
During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. It is essential, however, that you continue taking care of your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes a number of daily habits and practices that help to keep your smile healthy and bright.
Veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.
Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel.
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, that is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health.
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace missing teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post.
We provide gentle and dependable attention to each child’s individual needs, working to ensure that each child is comfortable and at ease. Our team provides many services for our patients including annual exams, dental cleanings, teeth whitening, tooth extraction, sedation dentistry, sealants, and urgent care services.
Root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended to avoid the need for extractionif the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. The infected and injured tissues will be removed, our dentists then clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure.
With several Oral surgeons between our locations, we are fully equipped to care for all your oral surgery needs from tooth and wisdom tooth extractions, bone grafts, TMJ Disorder, impacted canines treatment, dental implants, oral biopsy treatment along with sedation services.
We partner with Diamond Braces, orthodontia specialists who have provided orthodontic care to thousands of patients over the years. Whether you are in need of braces or invisalign we are able to offer the best quality, cost and efficiency.
A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure that may be required if your jawbone is not dense or thick enough. While we typically see best results with bone taken from your own body, we can also utilize artificial bone material or bone fragments from a tissue bank if needed. Your jawbone then grows together with the grafted bone tissue, creating a stronger, more stable foundation.
Our oral surgeon may recommend tooth removal to avoid serious complications and to keep your smile healthy. We will carefully evaluate your smile, including the positioning of your teeth and wisdom teeth, to determine whether your smile would benefit from tooth removal.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex.
TMJ disorder — a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD — can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. The exact cause of a person's TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine. Your pain may be due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, arthritis or jaw injury.
BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. BOTOX can also be used for a number of other purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or treat a TMJ disorder.
A Dermal Filler is an Injection of soft tissue, with a substance (often hyaluronic acid) that will fill in the wrinkles, deep creases, fine lines, or other imperfections of the skin over the face. They are also used to enhance the outline of the lips contour, improve the appearance thin or wrinkled lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, and improve the appearance of recessed scars.
A biopsy is a medical procedure in which a small sample of gum or other tissue will be removed from your mouth and sent to a lab for analysis. This allows our oral surgeon to diagnose potential periodontal disease, oral cancer, or other pathogenic dental conditions. This is not a particularly painful procedure that can save your life.
The second most commonly impacted teeth are the upper canines ). If they do not erupt as normal, our dentist may also take X-rays to determine whether the canines are impacted, to check the impacted tooth’s position, and to assess any effects on the neighboring teeth and structures.
The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone), or they may grow in at an incorrect angle.
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered.
Orthodontic braces straighten and align the teeth by gently shifting them into the correct position. The treatment addresses a variety of concerns, including crowding, spacing, overjet, crossbite and underbite. While back in the day people had limited choices, technological advances have resulted in a variety of braces options, and the process is much easier and more efficient.
