As Your Family Dentist, Your Dental Care Is Important To Us
Whether it’s fillings or gum disease treatment, we focus on the health of your teeth and teaching you how to maintain your teeth to prevent future cavities or dental issues. If it’s fillings that are needed, we can restore the tooth to a more natural appearance using the latest technology and materials. And remember, regular visits to our office can help prevent gum disease. Gum disease is common, and many people don’t even realize their gums are unhealthy and on their way to disease. The signs of gum disease include red, swollen gums, bleeding gums, or loose teeth. It’s one of the leading causes of tooth loss but is treatable by surgery, root planing, scaling or grafts. Gum disease is a serious condition that should be treated by your dentist immediately upon noticing the problem.
Receiving the Preventive Dental Care You Deserve
It’s not uncommon for a tooth to become chipped, worn or decayed. If part of the tooth is still healthy, a crown can be placed to restore the tooth to a more natural looking state. They are usually applied after a root canal or to repair a large cavity. We can apply a crown to the afflicted area and make your smile look more natural. If it’s dentures that are needed, patients can get either full or partial dentures to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures replace one or more teeth missing, while full dentures are used when all teeth are missing due to extraction or falling out from age. Other preventive treatments include root canals. A root canal is a procedure done when a tooth’s inside has become damaged or diseased. The root canal can save the natural tooth. The damaged tooth pulp is removed, cleaned and sealed, then filled with a composite. We recommend getting an exam and dental cleaning every six months in order to avoid cavities or tooth decay.
Cosmetic Dentistry By a Top Prosthodontist
Cosmetic services include teeth whitening, which can brighten a smile for up to six months, veneers, which are used to cover up discoloration, chips and gaps in teeth, and bonding to repair tooth chips and whiten teeth. We use the latest in cutting edge technology as well to make your visit more comfortable. Laser treatments have more precision and require less anesthesia, and reduce the risk of bacterial infections. They are quick, painless, and can be used to detect cavities and reshape gums. We also offer sedation and general anesthesia, because we realize that not everyone is comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
All in all, maintaining healthy teeth and gums will help ensure that your smile stays healthy for years to come. Make your appointment today. You can be confident that our commitment to your family’s dental health is our number one priority. Dental exams are a part of every day health and help lead to brighter, better lives.
