Digital X- Rays:
X-rays are a very safe and extremely effective way to get an in depth view of every patient’s hard and soft tissues in their mouth. While we only take radiographs when completely necessary, it is entirely impossible for a full evaluation to be completed by the Doctor without the proper x-rays. X-rays help us identify decay, abscesses, extra teeth, gum disease, and even early instances of cancer.
If you are someone who has developed gum disease, or Periodontal disease, Periodontal Cleanings may be necessary. We offer advanced cleaning techniques for deep cleanings (Scaling and Root Planing) as well as maintenance cleanings once the Periodontal disease has been stabilized by the deep cleaning. Occasionally, referral to a specialist is necessary for advanced cases of Periodontal disease.
When a tooth is broken, decayed, or abscessed to the point that it cannot be saved with conventional dental treatment, an extraction may become necessary. This is the removal of the tooth, and it may involve cutting or removal of bone and dissolvable stitches. Extractions are also recommended for orthodontic purposes, as well as to prevent problems with wisdom teeth (3rd molars).
A porcelain crown is a structure fabricated custom to the individual tooth by a dental laboratory to cover the entire tooth and keep it from breaking. Crowns are made to look and feel exactly like natural teeth, without anyone knowing that it is actually there. Crowns are prescribed in many situations. Common situations include large cavities, cracked or chipped teeth, after root canals, or for esthetic reasons.
Porcelain bridges can done to fill a space when a tooth has been lost. They are made to mimic natural teeth and create an esthetic and functional appearance.
An implant is titanium screw that is inserted into the bone and used to replace a tooth. Several implants can be placed to hold a bridge (that can replace several teeth). Implants can also be placed underneath complete and partial dentures and used to help with retention. Implants are a very comfortable, and nearly painless procedure with a very high success rate.
