Preventive Care

Regular preventive care, early diagnosis and treatment can help you avoid more costly dental problems that may develop or be worsened by lack of basic preventive care. Make sure to see our dental hygienist every 6 months!

Fillings and Onlays

​A dental inlay or onlay is bigger than a filling and smaller than a crown. It is cemented into place. An inlay is similar to a filling, but it lies within the cusps (bumps) on the chewing surface of your tooth. An onlay is larger than an inlay. It covers one or more cusps.

Several factors influence the performance, durability and longevity of dental restorations. These factors include: patient’s oral and general health, the components used in the filling material; and the chewing load that the tooth will have to bear.

Root Canals

Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don’t remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then your dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort.

Periodontics 

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because periodontal (gum) disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. That is one reason why regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. Treatment methods depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed.

Dental Implants 

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the bone under your gums. During a healing period, the bone grows around the implant. Then a replacement tooth, or crown, is attached to the metal post, giving you a restoration that is a lot like your natural tooth.

Implants also can be used to secure bridges and dentures when more than one tooth is missing.

Because the implants fuse to the jawbone and offer a secure base for the replacement teeth, many patients find this a comfortable option in restoring their smile. In many cases, implant-supported teeth may look and feel more like natural teeth.

TMJ & Mouthguards

​Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws it’s called bruxism, and often it happens as you sleep, caused not just by stress and anxiety but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite or teeth that are missing or crooked. You could have teeth that are painful or loose from severe grinding. This can lead to fractures in your teeth.

Our doctors can fit you with a mouth guard or TMJ appliance to protect your teeth during sleep.
