Our Dental Care Services
For the smile you have always wanted, cosmetic dentistry encompasses veneers or bonding, natural-looking tooth-colored fillings and teeth whitening.
An integral part of maintaining your teeth for life is the removal of plaque and tarter on a regular basis. The frequency of your visits is based upon your individual needs and oral health. During your visit we will update your medical history, perform an oral cancer-screening exam, check your teeth for cavities, review oral hygiene instructions and monitor your periodontal (gum) condition. Fluoride treatments are provided for children under the age of thirteen and for those adults when appropriate.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealant is a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored coating is painted on to the surface on the tooth. This effectively seals the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start.
For patients, adults and children, who have crowded or crooked teeth, spaces between their teeth, or misalign teeth and jaws, orthodontic therapy can help reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma due to protruding teeth. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have an evaluation by seven years of age. More than 25% of all orthodontics patients are adults.
A “cap”, “jacket” or “crown” will restore a broken, heavily filled or cracked tooth to its original size and shape. This may also be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more apt to fracture. Crowns can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improve the appearance of the teeth.
Many people believe that once they have dentures they no longer need regular dental care. Denture wearers require regular exam to insure their oral health, comfort and appearance. Gum tissues are in constant state of change. Periodic relining of the dentures may be necessary to insure a tight and comfortable fit.
