GENERAL DENTISTRY

Oral health care, regular check-ups, cleaning and more

Dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. We provide services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health.

Ideally, dentistry is preventative. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you visit your dentist regularly – at least once every six months – to ensure proper oral hygiene and functionality. Regular checkups and oral health maintenance prevent the development of serious dental problems that can require costly treatment. If you remain vigilant and visit your dentist regularly, you can enjoy exceptional dental health.

We will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene plan that incorporates dental examination, tooth cleaning, possible tooth scaling, X-ray and use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, uncover or treat problems as early as possible. We incorporate a variety of restorative procedures in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that will help prevent decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums and tongue. We also use restorative dentistry procedures to repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect or disease in these areas of the mouth.

LASER DENTISTRY

Adanced dental care using laser

Dental lasers can be used to:

  • reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores.
  • expose partially erupted wisdom teeth.
  • remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement.
  • manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
  • remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications.
  • perform biopsy procedures.
  • remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease.
  • remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures.
  • help treat infections in root canals.
  • speed up tooth whitening procedures.

What are the benefits of using dental lasers?
There are several advantages. Dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities; and control bleeding during surgery.

DENTAL FILLINGS

Making your decayed tooth look normal

New fillings can be sensitive to hot and cold liquids and other foods for the first four to six weeks after, which the sensitivity usually decreases. This is especially when the filling is very large or deep (near the nerve). During the initial healing stages, you may take a painkiller. If the sensitivity continues for an extended period of time or if the discomfort is extreme, call your dentist so that he/she can evaluate the situation and prescribe an appropriate therapy.

Typical symptoms of tooth decay (cavities) include

  • pain when chewing
  • sensitivity to hot or cold food
  • bleeding around the tooth or gums
  • swelling around the tooth.

When the tooth has an infection, it means that the nerve of the tooth (the pulp) is inflamed, usually as a result of dental decay. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to infection or injury. Initially, this produces a short sharp pain brought on by hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks; at this stage it is still reversible. However, if left untreated, the inflammation progresses and become irreversible and you may experience a throbbing pain of increasing severity. The pain usually lasts several minutes and can also occur spontaneously, particularly at night.

TMJ Therapy

Taking care of jaw muscles and nerves

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, also known as the temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD), is a disorder of the jaw muscles and nerves caused by injury to the temporomandibular joint. The temporomandibular joint is the connection between the jawbone to the skull. The injured temporomandibular joint leads to pain with chewing, clicking, and popping of the jaw; swelling on the sides of the face; nerve inflammation; headaches; tooth grinding; and sometimes dislocation of the temporomandibular joint.

There are a number of treatment options available to correct TMJ disorder. Your particular TMJ treatment should be determined through consultation with a dental professional highly experienced in temporomandibular joint problems. Ideally, your dentist should have expertise in evaluating jaw-to-bite relationships, and experience with proper treatment procedures such as occlusal equilibration and the use of intra-oral appliances.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Taking care of roots of missing teeth

Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone by surgery. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.

Benefits of implants include:

Feel – because implants are imbedded in your bone, they feel more like your natural teeth than bridges or dentures.

Convenience – you will not need to worry about denture adhesives or having your dentures slip, click or fall out when you speak.

Nutrition – you will be able to chew better with implants. Chewing can be difficult with regular dentures, especially ones that don’t fit perfectly. A regular upper denture also covers your palate, which can reduce your sense of taste.

Self-esteem – because implants are so much like your natural teeth, you will think about them less. Your self-esteem and confidence will be improved because you will not have to worry about denture problems or people noticing that you have missing teeth. Regular dentures also can affect your speech, which can make you less self-confident when talking with others

DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN

Taking care of your tiny-tots' teeth

Our child’s baby teeth are important. Children need strong, healthy teeth to chew their food, speak and have a good-looking smile.

Baby teeth also help to keep a space in the jaw for the adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost too early, the teeth beside it may drift into the empty space. When it’s time for the adult teeth to come in, there may not be enough room, causing the teeth to be crooked or crowded.

Severe infection in the baby tooth can also damage the shape and color of the adult tooth that is forming just below the baby tooth.

Dental Care for Children
Children can start to get cavities as soon as the first teeth emerge. It is very important that the first dental visit is pleasant, not anxiety-producing. Going to see the dentist only when the child has problems, does not allow this as the child will then associate the dental clinic with fear and pain. This makes any further treatment difficult.

  • Cavities in milk teeth need to be filled to relieve pain and to allow the child to eat, talk and smile confidently.
  • Children can have crooked teeth or a bad bite. The sooner these are discovered, the better the chances of successful treatment.
  • Parents might not be able to recognize early dental problems.
  • We can prevent the problems rather than spend time correcting them. Advice on nutrition and home dental care can also be provided.

COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Making your smile brighter

Cosmetic Dentistry Trends

Technological advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. Additionally, dentists are now using more conservative cosmetic dentistry techniques to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible, depending upon your specific clinical situation.

We use such technologies as lasers in order to perform some procedures necessary for cosmetic treatments in our offices – without the need for referrals to specialists. This makes cosmetic dental procedures such as smile makeovers more comfortable and convenient for patients, as well as helps to reduce recovery time.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

  • Inlays/Onlays
  • Composite Bonding
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Smile Makeover
  • Full mouth reconstruction

Cosmetic dentistry offers many options for people who are unhappy with their smile. If you are one of these people, we encourage you to read our comprehensive cosmetic procedure articles to learn about the various treatments available to beautify your smile.
