General Dental Maintenance

No matter what your age, you need to take care of your teeth and mouth. When your mouth is healthy, you can easily eat the foods you need for good nutrition. Smiling, talking, and laughing with others also are easier when your mouth is healthy.

Tooth Decay (Cavities)

Teeth are meant to last a lifetime. By taking good care of your teeth and gums, you can protect them for years to come. Tooth decay is not just a problem for children. It can happen as long as you have natural teeth in your mouth.

Tooth decay ruins the enamel that covers and protects your teeth. When you don’t take good care of your mouth, bacteria can cling to your teeth and form a sticky, colorless film called dental plaque. This plaque can lead to tooth decay and cavities. Gum disease can also cause your teeth to decay.

Fluoride is just as helpful for adults as it is for children. Using a fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinse can help protect your teeth. If you have a problem with cavities, your dentist or dental hygienist may give you a fluoride treatment during the office visit. The dentist also may prescribe a fluoride gel or mouth rinse for you to use at home.

Gum Diseases

Gum diseases (sometimes called periodontal or gingival diseases) are infections that harm the gum and bone that hold teeth in place. When plaque stays on your teeth too long, it forms a hard, harmful covering, called tartar, that brushing doesn’t clean. The longer the plaque and tartar stay on your teeth, the more damage they cause. Your gums may become red, swollen, and bleed easily. This is called gingivitis.

If gingivitis is not treated, over time it can make your gums pull away from your teeth and form pockets that can get infected. This is called periodontitis. If not treated, this infection can ruin the bones, gums, and tissue that support your teeth. In time, it can cause loose teeth that your dentist may have to remove.

Here’s how you can prevent gum disease:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day (with a fluoride toothpaste).
  • Floss once a day.
  • Make regular visits to your dentist for a checkup and cleaning.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Don’t use tobacco products.


Metal Free Restorations
and Partials

We can now make your smile beautiful inside and out. In many cases, your old worn out mercury-silver fillings, or decayed areas can now be replaced with natural looking tooth-colored porcelain restorations that are totally metal-free! Metal-free restorations are one of the most popular treatments in the office and they can be fabricated for front and back teeth.

Composite White Fillings

Advances have been made in modern dentistry, and the good news is that now white fillings are beautiful, strong and long-lasting. They are a dense pressure treated restoration. The color is invisible and it blends into your surrounding tooth.

  • Natural White Color
  • Requires removal of decay only. Because filling bonds to the tooth, it preserves tooth substance.
  • Strengthens the tooth because it bonds to the tooth. That tooth becomes one solid mass again like before it was decayed.
  • No Mercury
  • Filling material bonds to the tooth margins. It is sealed and does not rust.
  • Can easily be repaired by adding on to the bonding.
  • Beautiful and undetectable

Full Porcelain Crowns

Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function.

Crowns can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics. Some metal-free crowns incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.

Root Canals

Retaining your natural teeth should always be our first choice, and root canal therapy is the most common and effective procedure for saving a damaged or diseased tooth.

Inside of each tooth's hard outer shell is a nourishing pulp of blood vessels, lymph vessels and nerves. The root canals of your teeth extend to the jawbone and they contain this pulp. Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, can save a tooth whose pulp is diseased or damaged.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function.

A bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of bridge consists of crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants.

Crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics. Some metal-free crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.

Inlays

More conservative than a crown, inlays are a method of restoring normal tooth structure after decay or other damage. Unlike standard fillings, inlays do not weaken the tooth structure, but actually strengthen it. After the procedure the tooth can bear up to 50-75% more chewing force. Our inlays are produced in office, while you wait so there is no need to make multiple appointments to get the care you need.

Periodontal Maintenance

Your teeth are meant to last throughout your life. With conscientious care, indeed they can do that. Regularly brushing your teeth, flossing and regular visits to your dentist for professional cleanings can help avoid periodontal disease, which is the major cause of tooth loss in adults.

Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for the replacement of one tooth, multiple teeth, or the complete reconstruction of an entire arch. This foundation allows for the replacement teeth to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental implants allow a person who has lost teeth to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence knowing that their teeth appear natural.

The implants are titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone and act as the root structure where teeth are missing. After three months the bone grows in and around the titanium implant creating a strong foundation for the artificial teeth. Implants also allow the preservation of facial structure by preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
