General Dental Services
Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and periodontal disease. In fact, the major cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease, which is known as the silent killer of teeth because most patients feel no symptoms until it’s too late. With regular dental visits, we can detect and treat any dental issues before they get out of hand.
We suggest scheduling your child’s first dental appointment between eighteen months and two years of age. At that age, we can begin to monitor the growth and development of their teeth and mouth. We try to make their visit as fun and comfortable as possible.
We also take the time to instruct parents and children on proper brushing and flossing techniques so they can enjoy good oral health for a lifetime.
The leading cause of gum disease is the build-up of plaque on your teeth. With regular cleanings, we can remove the tartar build-up before it causes gum irritation and disease. We treat the early stages of periodontal disease in our office but may refer you to a specialist for more advanced cases.
Restorative Dental Services
Dental Implants can replace single teeth or multiple teeth and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth to recreate your beautiful smile. A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that takes the place of a natural tooth root. The titanium tooth root is surgically implanted in your jawbone, and a crown restoration is placed on top of the implant to create a strong, beautiful tooth.
When you are missing teeth, the bone can weaken, and the jaw can recede. Dental implants keep your jaw strong and youthful-looking.
Dental sealants are used to prevent tooth decay in children. They are applied to teeth, especially molars with large crevices where bacteria can accumulate and cause cavities. The sealant fills in the crevices, forming a barrier to protect the tooth surface. With regular exams and cleanings, fluoride, a healthy diet, and good at-home dental care, cavities can be greatly reduced or prevented.
If you are missing some but not all of your teeth, a partial denture can be used to replace the natural missing teeth. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework.
Our office uses the latest dental technology and equipment to provide the best treatments possible for our patients.
