Each new patient will receive a comprehensive oral exam which includes digital xrays, head and neck exam, oral cancer screening, and checking for gum disease. Your oral health is very important and may affect your overall health. Your mouth is the window to your body as many medical conditions shows up in your mouth before symptoms are detected elsewhere. Thus, it is important to get a dental exam done twice per year to.
This type of cleaning involves using specialized instruments to gently remove deposits without harming the teeth. Once all surfaces are smooth, we will polish your teeth with a soft “rubber cup” that spins on the end. This process is to smooth the surfaces of your teeth to minimize plaque adhering to your teeth.
If you are diagnosed with active gum disease, we would like to treat it first using the least invasive and most cost-effective manner. This is often through non-surgical periodontal treatment. This procedure involves careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins. If necessary, adjunctive therapy such as delivery of local antimicrobials directly into the pockets is performed. If your gum disease is severe, periodontal surgery may be required.
Unlike the silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings also known as “white fillings” will match the shade of your natural teeth making this an excellent cosmetic option. This restoration material could be use to filled cavities, or to replace those worn out silver fillings.
Teeth whitening has become one the most popular and cost effective ways to enhance your smile. We offer in-office whitening, where we could whiten your teeth as much as 5 shades lighter, or, we can make you custom bleaching trays where you can whiten your teeth at the comfort of your own home.
As we age, many of us find ourselves with teeth that are no longer structurally sound. This could be due from having a tooth that has been restored multiple times, root canals or chipping of the enamel. When there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a filling, the tooth will need a crown to restore the tooth’s natural form and function.
A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth ultimately cause the remaining teeth to shift and or rotate resulting in an imbalance bite. This could potentially lead to gum disease or TMJ disorders. A typical bridge will be anchored to the teeth in front and behind the missing tooth/teeth and will have a false tooth to replace the missing tooth/teeth. You have an option to have the bridge fabricated from precious metal such as gold or made with porcelain for a natural appearance.
If you have cracked or discolored teeth that needs more than teeth whitening, veneers are excellent in restoring your smile. Veneers are thin shell that coats the teeth to give them a better appearance. It is a very conservative procedure requiring very little to no tooth structure removal.
A dental implant is the gold standard of replacing missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are made out of titanium which is 100% biocompatible. It replace teeth permanently without treating or touching adjacent teeth, and the end result is that only you will know that you have ever lost a tooth.
Oral Surgery(wisdom teeth extraction)
It is important not to ignore the need for removing wisdom teeth. If left uncared for, wisdom teeth can not only damage nearby teeth, but the jawbones and nerves. Most adults do not have room in their jaw to allow the full eruption of wisdom teeth. In such case, this will cause the tooth to be partially erupted or become impacted. This can cause continuous irritation around the area and potentially lead to infection and the lost of the adjacent teeth if left untreated.
Temporomandibular joint diseases, commonly known as TMJ or TMD, are a category of conditions that cause symptoms such as chronic headaches, migraines, neck pain, and possibly popping of the jaw. Many who suffer this disease clench and/or grind their teeth during the night or subconsciously during the day. Grinding your teeth can create a great deal of force on your jaw, which can ultimately cause damage to your teeth and jaw joints. A fabricate you a custom night guard to fit around your teeth, which could be worn at night when you sleep or during the day. Doing this can help protect your teeth from the harmful effects of grinding and clenching and prevent further damage.
