- Kids Dentistry
- Oral Cancer Screenings
INITIAL ORAL EXAM
Your initial oral exam includes a Doctor's exam, full mouth x-rays, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
For optimal oral health, cleanings are routinely done every 3-6 months by our Registered Dental Hygienists. X-rays and periodontal measurements are taken. Thorough exams are performed using an intraoral camera.
Periodontal treatment is performed in our office for patients who require a more involved, deep cleaning to treat "gum" disease.
ORAL CANCER SCREENINGS
Cancer screening technology has been saving lives for years. We recommend and perform yearly screenings to ensure early detection.
RESTORATIVE (FILLINGS & BONDING)
We use the latest resin materials that bond to the teeth to provide strength and optimal color match.
CROWNS AND VENEERS
Crowns and veneers can be used to correct, improve and protect teeth. We work with state-of-the-art dental laboratories to fabricate the most naturally esthetic crowns and veneers.
One new dental technology involving dental X-rays is digital X-rays. They offer the advantage of an 80 percent reduction in radiation, no need for film or processing chemicals, production of a nearly instantaneously image, and the ability to use color contrast in the image. Source: Dentistry.com
When we determine a root canal is needed, we work closely with an endodontic specialist to ensure gentle and quality care.
We consult with an implant specialist who performs the implant placement. Our office performs the final placement of the crowns or prosthesis.
REMOVABLE DENTURES AND PARTIALS
To replace missing teeth, we can make removable dentures or partials for you.
Our state-of-the-art, in-office bleaching system will make your teeth whiter in less than 1.5 hours. Another option is our take home bleaching system you can take with you for results in less than 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.
MOUTH GUARDS (CLENCHING, GRINDING AND ATHLETIC INJURY PREVENTION)
If you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, a night guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in a new soft material, inside a hard cover. This provides more comfort than the traditional, all hard appliance. Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a sports guard to protect your teeth from injury.
We recommend a sleep appliance for individuals who suffer from snoring. We also fabricate this appliance for individuals who have undergone an ambulatory sleep study and have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. We have experienced good results with the appliance as an alternative to surgery or nasal CPAP.
