Comprehensive Dentistry Services
- Composite fillings – Some of the most common types of dental care today are bondings or white fillings. Bondings are used to fix cracks in broken teeth or cover discolorations. When a tooth receives a bonding, the goal is to fix the appearance, but also to protect it from further damage that could result in decay or tooth loss.
Tooth-colored fillings, on the other hand, are used when decay from cavities has already begun to erode the enamel of the tooth. The BPA-free composite filling is applied to your tooth to protect it from the damage of more decay and to strengthen the enamel.
- Crowns and bridges – When a tooth is damaged beyond the aid of a filling or bond, a dental onlay, or crown, may be recommended. This is a restorative treatment that corrects chips, cracks, or severely decayed teeth. It’s a tooth-shaped and colored covering that protects your damaged tooth from further degeneration.
Bridges are a step beyond crowns. When you have missing teeth, it makes you self-conscious about your smile. A bridge is a solution to this problem. It’s an appliance that connects temporary false teeth to the permanent teeth surrounding them. You get a natural-looking smile to replace those missing teeth!
- Gum treatments – With regular check-ups from your dentist, problems like gingivitis can be caught and treated early. Gum treatments such as antibiotics, ongoing treatment, and at-home care can stop this disease from expanding into periodontitis.
However, our specialists can treat severe gum conditions, also. Specialty procedures like scaling and root planing are used to deep clean the surfaces of your teeth’s roots. When plaque and tartar are removed, periodontal disease’s effects are reduced.
Severe gingivitis and periodontitis might require more complex care like a laser gingivectomy or gingivoplasty. Through these treatments, laser wavelengths applied to your gums help heal the damage caused by gum disease.
- Cleaning and deep cleaning – Regular cleanings should be a part of everyone’s dental care, no matter how healthy your teeth are. Through these cleanings, trained hygienists use special tools to scrape away any build-up you may have missed, and your dentist checks for early signs of damage.
Deep cleanings are similar to regular cleanings, but you may also receive treatment such as extra fluoride care to help protect your teeth from the damage caused by cavities and decay.
- Extractions – When the damage to a tooth is beyond repair, your dentist might recommend an extraction. This surgical process removes the tooth and the root from your mouth, preventing it from causing any more pain or spreading damage.
- Wisdom teeth extractions – As we grow older and, of course, wiser, our four wisdom teeth begin to appear. Because your teeth are already fully settled, new growth from these wisdom teeth can cause damage to those that are already in place. Your mouth can become overcrowded, or the new teeth can cause other problems.
Because of this, many people find they need to have their wisdom teeth extracted. This process is similar to the regular extraction of a damaged tooth.
- Intraoral camera – If your mouth’s interior has damage, your dentist might prefer to use our intraoral camera, or IOC, to show you what’s going on behind the scenes. These cameras are used in place of mirrors so that the patient has a birds’-eye view of what’s happening in their mouth.
- Root canals – When a cavity is not caught in time or is ignored, it can cause significant decay. By the time you head to the dentist for a filling, it’s beyond that easy fix. Your dentist may recommend a root canal to remove the infection from the healthy tooth area.
- Preventative and emergency care – Preventative dentistry is the best kind of care. You and your dentist work together to ensure there’s no damage to your teeth and take care of it as soon as it starts to happen.
But sometimes emergencies arise, such as trauma to a tooth or severe pain caused by damage you weren’t aware of. When this happens, we have emergency care options ready to help you.
- Full and partial dentures – For people who are missing many teeth or have had major damage to their mouth, dentures may be the best option. Your dentist can answer your questions about how a customized set of full or partial dentures can give you back your beautiful smile.
