Cleanings & Exams
Regular cleanings and dental exams are an essential part of keeping your teeth happy and healthy. This is what we call preventative dental care — visiting your dentist for routine maintenance appointments to help keep problems like cavities from occurring in the first place. During each cleaning appointment, we’ll remove the plaque and tartar that build up on your teeth over time (even if you brush regularly) and conduct a thorough exam to check your overall dental health. We suggest scheduling a cleaning every six months or so, unless you have a condition like gum disease that requires more frequent treatment. Doing so will keep you feeling fresh and smiling brightly.
Your child deserves to experience positive lifelong dental health — and we want to help by giving them a strong foundation to start with. We suggest bringing your child in for an initial appointment sometime around their first birthday and continuing to come in for regular cleanings and dental checkups after that. This will allow us to help make sure that their teething process goes smoothly and that they learn the basics of good oral hygiene at an early age. If your child feels anxious about visiting the dentist, don’t worry — we offer safe, effective nitrous oxide sedation to help make them feel more comfortable and relaxed.
If you develop a cavity, as most people do at some point, you’ll need a filling to set things right. A cavity is a hole in the enamel of your tooth that occurs when bacteria eat away at the hard outer surface of the tooth, which can also be damaged by regularly eating foods like soda, coffee, or sugar. If left untreated, a cavity can result in an infection or even losing a tooth. Fortunately, we can perform a simple filling procedure to close up the cavity and restore normal function to your tooth. Ask about our tooth-colored fillings using safe, nontoxic dental composite material.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are artificial teeth that fit over an existing tooth to repair it or protect it from further damage. Made from sturdy, elegant porcelain, crowns are used to restore function or improve the appearance of your natural tooth structure. If you’re missing teeth, crowns can also be fused together to form what’s called a bridge, which allows you to fill in the gaps in your smile so that you can look and feel normal again.
