Cleanings & Exams
Regular dental check-ups are very important to your oral health. By consistently visiting your dentist, you can keep up on the health of your smile. Decay and other dental problems can be caught and treated early. A regular check-up includes a professional cleaning, dental exam and x-rays as needed. A professional cleaning will help remove plaque and tartar buildup to reveal a brighter smile and help you avoid tooth decay. Your dentist will examine your smile for any signs of dental problems and inform you of any treatment that is recommended. X-rays will show you more detail concerning your smile.
Although our team does everything we can to avoid tooth extractions, at times an extraction can be the best thing for the health of your smile. An extraction could be recommended for an impacted wisdom tooth, crowded teeth or a severely damaged or decayed tooth. Extractions are carefully performed by one of our licensed dentists. Sedation is available to help patients feel more relaxed throughout their visit and often makes the extraction process virtually painless.
For preventative care, dental sealants are highly recommended for protecting your back molars. Dental sealants are used to coat the hard-to-reach areas of your teeth to protect them from decay. Once applied, sealants will last for many years.
If you have a chipped or misshapen tooth, bonding can restore your smile! Tooth bonding is made from a durable composite material that is shaped to restore your tooth. Your smile can look new again with the help of tooth bonding.
Decay that spreads further into a tooth can eventually reach the sensitive pulp inside of the tooth. When this happens, root canal therapy is recommended to remove all of the infection and save the tooth from extraction. Left untreated, decay can cause severe tooth pain and eventually tooth loss. Root canal therapy is a great way to preserve your tooth and save it from further damage.
Crowns & Bridges
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental crowns or bridges could give you back your smile! Dental crowns are created from durable high-quality materials and blend in naturally with your smile while protecting a damaged tooth at the same time. With dental bridges to replace missing teeth, you can keep surrounding teeth from shifting out of place and preserve your jaw bone. There are many advantages to restoring your smile.
