Cleanings & exams
Cleanings and exams play an important role in keeping your teeth healthy and your smile looking good. By coming in for cleanings, you help eliminate the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth, which can prevent bigger problems like cavities from developing and contribute to your long-term well-being. Our skilled dentists and hygienists will also conduct a thorough assessment of your overall dental health.
Fillings & root canals
When tooth decay does strike, the first solution is to place a filling on the affected area. Your dentist will gently remove any decayed tooth structure and then apply a tooth-colored material called composite to fill in the hole in your enamel caused by the decay while maintaining the natural appearance of your tooth.
If the decay is more severe, your dentist may need to do a root canal, which involves cleaning out the infected tissue inside the tooth before packing it and sealing the hole with a crown. Our dentists are passionate about making sure you feel safe during these procedures and can offer several sedation options to help enhance your comfort.
Full or partial dentures
If you’re missing teeth, dentures provide an effective, affordable option for filling in the gaps in your smile. Wearing dentures creates the appearance of healthy, natural teeth, so you no longer have to feel uncomfortable when you smile.
We’ll work with you to design custom dentures that meet your exact needs. Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, you can get either a full or partial set. While dentures typically rest in your mouth through adhesives or suction, our dentists can also place implants to help hold your dentures in place more firmly, while still allowing you to easily remove them for cleaning.
In order to give you great dental care, we usually need to take x-rays of your teeth first. That’s why we’re proud to offer advanced digital x-ray machines at our office. This allows us to get a clear picture of exactly what is going on inside your mouth, so we can assess what treatment approach best suits your needs. Our x-ray machines are safe and we can usually take a full set of x-rays in just a few minutes.
