Whether your child needs a teeth cleaning or your parent needs dental implants, our team is here to provide the best dental treatment. We also offer the oral hygiene and nutrition guidance you need to enhance your oral health and elevate your smile.
Caring for Your Smile
Regular dental cleanings are important in maintaining good oral health. Dental cleanings are scheduled with one of our Registered Dental Hygienists. Gingival health and bone levels are monitored in order for patients to maintain a good support system for the teeth. Oral hygiene education and diet counseling directed towards a healthy mouth are also provided.
X-rays are an important part of a complete oral examination. Several different types of images may be taken in order to find cavities and other conditions. Bitewing radiographs are taken at initial examinations and then periodically at recall appointments which can allow us to find cavities hidden in between the teeth while they are still small.
Fluoride is important in providing strength to the enamel of teeth. Professional in-office fluoride applications are typically applied to children up to the age of 18. Fluoride varnish is also applied to hypersensitive root surfaces to control sensitivity. Fluoridated toothpaste and optimally fluoridated drinking water are also highly recommended in order to avoid cavities.
Laser density is provided in our office with the advanced Solea Dental Laser. The dental laser eliminates dental injections and dental drill in select dental cavities. The Solea has many other applications as well such as repositioning tight frenums and re-contouring of the gingiva.
Sealants are placed on newly erupted molars in the pits and fissures where cavities like to begin. When sealants are placed it dramatically reduces the formation of cavities.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease is a disease of the gum tissues and bone support systems of the teeth. It is a common condition and a leading cause of tooth loss. Treatment of periodontal disease and maintaining control of the condition is extremely important. Our Registered Dental Hygienists are passionate about performing these treatments and educating our patients to provide good outcomes.
Dental crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape and integrity of a tooth. A dental crown provides maximum strength to a tooth and are permanently cemented into the mouth.
A dental bridge is a permanent appliance that replaces a missing tooth or teeth. This improves the function and smile in a patient’s mouth. Bridges are permanently cemented in the mouth.
A dental implant is a titanium metal cylinder placed into the jaw. After the bone has integrated to the implant, it can be restored. Depending on the application, this can be with a crown or dental prosthesis to replace a missing tooth, multiple teeth, or to help secure a denture. Dental implants are often the best way to replace a missing tooth. We coordinate the placement of the implant with an oral surgeon. Once your implant is solid, we will restore the implant and help improve your smile.
Dentures (Partial & Full)
If you have a tooth with extensive decay, bone loss, a severe crack, or other serious dental condition it may be necessary to remove the tooth. Our team is trained to provide dental extractions with limited discomfort and anxiety. We have even had people so comfortable they have fallen asleep during extraction appointments. So don’t fear, we are here to help!
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is provided to remove the pulp tissue, also called the nerve, in order to treat pain in teeth as well as an infection. Root canal treatment is typically painless for the patient. When performed on a back tooth, a crown is usually necessary afterwards to provide additional strength.
Bleaching of teeth is also a service provided in or office. We offer in-office bleaching and at home bleaching systems to improve the shade and appearance of teeth.
Veneers are provided to a patient to improve the shape, lightness, and position of the teeth, as well as the function. They can be an important part of providing the smile that you want. The current generation of porcelain/ceramic veneers have great strength and look wonderful too!
