Cleaning and Prevention

Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations.

 

Periodontal Therapy and Maintenance

 

Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers

Among the causes for periodontal (gum) disease are poor oral hygiene,  neglect, genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal disease can cause loss of supporting structures around teeth and can cause eventual loss of teeth. Periodontal therapy involves removing calculus (hard deposits) from above and below the gumline and the elimination of bacteria.  This therapy stops the progression of bone loss and increases the health of your whole body. The periodontal maintenance phase is very important to maintain this level of health.

 

If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution.

 

Dentures

Missing teeth can be hard on multiple aspects of your life.  It can make it hard to eat, impacting your overall diet and wellness.  Missing teeth can also impact self esteem and cause embarrassment in social situations. If you have multiple missing teeth, you might want to consider partial or full dentures for cosmetic purposes and overall wellness.

 

Extractions

Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.

 

Fillings

Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is one of the ways our dentists preserve your health.

 

Implant Restorations

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth.  An oral surgeon or periodontist places the dental implant in the bone and we restore these implants with crowns.

 

Invisalign 

There are various ways to correct crooked or crowded teeth without the use of traditional braces. Invisalign offers patients straight teeth with clear aligners, generally in less time than traditional braces.

 

Night Guards

Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. Mouth guards can help protect your teeth from wear and fractures as well as help temporomandibular disorders.

 

Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter.  We offer both in office and take home whitening options.
