Cleanings & Exams
Our office offers regular cleanings and exams to our patients to help keep track of their oral health. Routine professional cleanings are recommended to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and prevent cavities or decay from becoming a problem! An exam will provide our dentist an opportunity to provide a thorough assessment of your oral health condition and offer suggestions to treat any issue you may be having. Don’t put off your cleanings and exams; we invite you to schedule an appointment at our office today! We will be excited to provide you the quality care you deserve and answer any questions you may have about your checkup.
X-rays are a great way to get a better look at your teeth both above and below the gum line! Our digital x-rays give us the ability to recognize problems before they come to the surface. Digital x-rays are a part of our process in conducting your exams and cleaning. Our digital x-rays expose patients to less radiation than typical x-ray machines and provide us with instant access to imaging of your teeth and jaw bone.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are both incredible options for restoring function and appearance to your smile! Crowns are placed over existing teeth that have been damaged due to decay or injury. Upon placement, dental crowns immediately begin protecting the encapsulated tooth while improving appearance and restoring strength to your bite. Crowns look and feel like a regular tooth and prevent further damage from happening to the natural tooth structure.
A dental bridge is another treatment that restores both function and appearance to a patient’s mouth. The dental bridge may be used to replace one or more missing teeth by literally bridging the gap from one supporting tooth to another! Bridges are formed by fusing together dental crowns and attaching the crowns to your natural teeth on both sides of the gap. This offers support to the artificial teeth and creates a permanent bond that fills any space left by your missing teeth. If you’re interested in crowns or bridges, contact our office to schedule an appointment! We will be happy to meet with you and discuss the best option that meets your unique needs and interests.
Dentures are one of many treatment options for patients that have missing teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and effectively restore the use and appearance of natural teeth. Dentures are a removable device that may be offered to patients that are missing some or all of their teeth. If a patient is missing all of their natural teeth, a set of full dentures would be recommended to fit the entire mouth. Partial dentures are an option for patients interested in filling the gaps left from missing teeth when they have some natural teeth remaining. Dentures provide a comfortable and convenient option for rebuilding your smile and restoring the ability of your mouth and jaw. Implant-supported dentures are also an excellent option for patients that desire the strongest possible support and hold for their dentures.
Porcelain & Gold Inlays
Inlays are an option provided to patients that have some decay within the grooves of their teeth but not enough to require a dental crown. Inlays work to restore function and strength to your natural tooth. Our office offers both porcelain and gold inlay options to meet your needs and goals for your smile! Porcelain is the more natural option which is more blendable and easier to conceal than gold. Whichever material you prefer for your inlay, we will be delighted to provide that for you!
Oral Cancer Screening
We care about the health of our patients and make sure that we give special attention to any concerns you may have about your dental health. Oral cancer screenings are provided along with your exam to check your mouth for anything unusual. During our oral cancer screenings, we will examine your gums, tissues, neck, lips, throat, face, and tongue for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer. We encourage you to call our office and schedule an appointment if you notice anything abnormal between your routine appointments! We care about the health of our patients and ensure we give special attention to any concerns you may have about your dental health.
Bruxism is the condition of teeth grinding and jaw clenching that leads to pain and damage to your teeth. At our office, we make custom-made mouthguards to wear when you’re most vulnerable to teeth grinding. For many patients, this is while they sleep! Simply wear the mouthguard and immediately start protecting your teeth from further damage, discomfort, or decay. The oral device separates your upper and lower teeth and blocks the ability of the teeth to connect. This puts an end to any subconscious tooth grinding and damages that it can cause!
