General Dentistry

 

Routine dental care designed to prevent problems with your teeth and also to restore your teeth back to healthy condition in the event that you do have a problem such as a cavity. We feature pain free shots, nitrous oxide, and oral sedation

Dental Fillings

We primarily use tooth colored (white) filling material for the repair of cavities and other defects in the teeth since these materials have now evolved to the point where they are practical to use in most cases.
We can also repair or replace older silver amalgam (metal) fillings with tooth white filling material.


Tooth Extractions

Our primary focus will always be to preserve your tooth if that is at all possible. However, in cases such as severe decay or severe tooth fracture removal of the tooth may be the best course of treatment to relieve pain and prevent infection.We pull (extract) of all different types of teeth. There are occasions when an impacted molar or abscessed tooth may require referral to an oral surgeon.

Crowns

Dental crowns are used in cases of extreme decay in a tooth, to cover and strengthen broken teeth, and sometimes for cosmetic reasons. We utilize full porcelain crowns, full metal and porcelain fused to metal and can recommend the best treatment for your needs and goals.

Dental Bridges

Bridges replace broken or missing teeth in order to maintain the alignment of the rest of the teeth, prevent bone loss, and to restore the appearance of your smile. Dental bridges also help you to chew your food more normally in cases where there are missing teeth.

Teeth Cleaning

Regular cleanings can help prevent gum disease, help you to maintain a nice bright smile and most importantly they can help you to detect problems like cavities early and ultimately to keep your own teeth for life. We recommend that you have your teeth cleaned every 6 months. Since most insurance plans cover this type of service it is an even more cost effective cornerstone to your dental plan. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are an important part of preventative dental care. It is always less expensive and less painful to take regular care of your teeth than it is to only see the dentist only when you have a problem.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital dental radiographs or x-rays have the primary advantage of an 80% lower radiation exposure than traditional xray technology. While even standard x-rays within the setting of the dentist's office don't provide much exposure we know that many patients are concerned about radiation.

Dentists use a variety of x-ray types depending on the needs of the patient.

Panographic X-Rays give a complete overview of the teeth, mouth, jaw, and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).

Bitewing views show cavities between the teeth, the bone around the root of a tooth, as well as the alignment of the upper and lower teeth together.

Periapical views show an individual tooth and can help detect any problems in a pinpoint area especially below the gum line or in the bone that supports the tooth.

Dental (Tooth) Sealants

Dental sealants can be an effective means of preventing food particles from becoming lodged in the deeper fissures of the teeth at the back of the mouth (molars and pre-molars) and subsequently leading to the formation of cavity causing plaque.

They can also allow more effective daily brushing by smoothing out the surface of the tooth giving the bristles of your toothbrush greater access to those areas.

While children and teenagers are most often thought of as the best candidates for sealants people of all ages can benefit from these easy to apply resins.

Fluoride Application

Office fluoride treatments help to strengthen tooth enamel and to prevent the formation of carries (cavities).

Cosmetic Dentistry

 

The primary purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance your teeth and to enhance your smile. One particularly rewarding aspect of these treatments is the higher sense of self-confidence we see in our patients.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening is probably the best known and most widely used form of improving the appearance of ones smile. There are a variety of methods in use some of which are only performed in-office and others which you can do at home.

We can evaluate your whitening needs and formulate the best plan for you.

We perform in-office teeth whitening procedures. We also carry and sell home whitening products from Opalesence. These excellent whitening trays and refill tubes are so powerful they are only available through your local dentist.


Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are very thin coverings applied to the teeth to cover or repair chips, change the appearance of discolored teeth, close or repair gaps, help in the repair of chipped teeth, and even to lengthen teeth and even out the appearance of your smile. Veneers have the added advantage of whitening your teeth.

One of the major reasons for the popularity of veneers is the fact that very little of the tooth needs to be removed in order to apply them. So unlike a crown, most of your real tooth will remain.


Repair of Chipped Teeth or Excessive Gaps in the Teeth

Bonding-resin fillings are used to close spaces or repair chipped teeth. The results can be dramatic and allow you to keep your real teeth while still improving their appearance.


Dental Implants and Crowns

Implants are permanent replacements for missing or severly damaged teeth. They look and function just like your regular teeth and can not only enhance the appearance of your smile, but also help in avoiding some of the long term affects of gaps in your teeth by stabilizing the surrounding teeth to help support them and keep them from moving or becoming damaged.

Crowns and Bridges

Dental bridges have many of the same functions as a dental implant. The primary difference with a bridge is that it uses the surrounding teeth to stay in place whereas an implant is permanently mounted to the bone. Bridges can be a very effective option for the replacement of missing teeth.


Orthodontics

The primary goals of Orthodontic Dentistry are to correct the alignment of the upper and lower teeth, (termed mal-occlusions and more commonly referred to as an overbite or underbite) and/or to address the alignment of the teeth within the jaw.

We specialize in correcting these problems in both children and adults.

We feature tooth colored braces.

Whle we all think of braces, retainers, and headgear when we talk about Orthodontics, there are many more procedures that we perform in this field such as:

  • Comprehensive-treatment of both the upper and lower arches

  • Limited-treatment of one arch or only a portion of the arches to correct slight crowding

  • Interceptive-treatment of primary and permanent teeth, is often done in two phases so patient is not in braces for an extended amount of time

  • Expanders

  • Space maintainers

  • Splinting-stabilizing of loose teeth following an accident
