Initial Oral Examination Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Dental Implants We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. Click here for more info
Teeth Bleaching We have a home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. Crowns and Veneers You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (impressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal. Fillings: Resin Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.
Root Canals We perform root canals on all teeth. Periodontal Treatment You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic). This process involves a doctor or hygienist perofmring the cleaning below the gumline.
Mouth Guards Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
