Exam & Dental Cleaning
Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. We recommend maximum of 6 months in between your exams. During your exam, we will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth damage
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Provide a thorough teeth cleaning
Emergency Dental Care
Emergency doesn’t always happen at the most convenient time. Any kind of tooth damage; broken tooth, lost crowns, chipped fillings, or an infection should be taken care of immediately. If you are in need of emergency dental care, please do not hesitate to contact us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’ll have you smiling again in no time!
Crown & Bridge
Crown is needed to restore a tooth to its original shape and provide protection from use and wear. Typically teeth that need crown have previously been root canalled, have large existing fillings that weaken the integrity of the tooth or are fractured. Two or more crowns that are fused together are called a “bridge”. Bridge is used to replace missing teeth. It is important to replace any missing tooth to create balance and harmony in the mouth.
Denture & Partial
Denture or partial is used to replace missing teeth. To ensure the most natural and comfortable result, denture or partial must be custom fit to an individual’s mouth and gums. These are removable appliances that provide natural looking teeth, a secure bite, and a full smile.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal treatment is needed when the pulp (soft tissue inside a tooth) is either inflamed or dead. The purpose of this treatment is to remove the inflamed tissue or bacteria inside the root canal and thus allow the surrounding tissues to heal.
Some of the symptoms that indicate the need for root canal therapy:
- Moderate to severe lingering toothache with hot or cold foods.
- Tooth pain so intense it wakes you up at night.
- Pain when chewing or biting.
- Swelling on your gum which when pressed may release blood or pus.
- Pain that starts in one tooth and spreads to other regions of the jaw or head.
For example, an infected lower molar (back tooth) could cause pain in the ear! Sometimes, there may be no symptoms. Silently the infected area can destroy the surrounding structure, leaving the tooth un-restorable.
Dental Implant Restoration
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or as an anchor for denture/ partial. With dental implants, you can laugh, bite, and chew just as you would with your natural teeth. This treatment is giving patients who lose a tooth prematurely a second chance in restoring their smile.
The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, it turns into calculus (tartar). When plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone.
Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Four out of five people have periodontal disease and don’t know it! Most people are not aware of it because the disease is usually painless in the early stages.
Not only is it the number one reason for tooth loss, research suggests that there may be a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy. Depending on the severity of the disease, the following can be indicated:
- surgical procedure
- non-surgical procedure – usually scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) & antibiotic treatment.
