Nothing is more important that preventing dental issues from arising. You probably know that the best way to prevent issues with your teeth is to brush them twice a day and floss them at least once a day. There is a third step to preventing dental issues from arising – coming in twice a year for a professional cleaning and examination. When you come in, we can give your teeth a thorough cleaning that will get into all the cracks and crevices that you might not be able to reach with just floss and a toothbrush. We even polish your teeth to make it harder for plaque and tartar to form.
During the examination, we make sure that you don’t have any cavities or other oral health issues like cysts, tumors, or alignment issues. We also check for signs of the start of these issues so that you can pay special attention to those areas and prevent them from happening.
Most people don't like the idea of getting their teeth "fixed", but sometimes it can't be helped. We are a general dentist, so we provide services for fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and extractions. For the really anxious, we offer nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as "laughing gas". For that added distraction, patients can watch television during their procedure.
There are so many things to take into consideration with your children's teeth! We treat kids all the time, and can give the experience for a pleasant trip to the office, so they won't mind coming back.
A lot of people think that the health of their teeth equals the health of their mouth, but they forget that their gums are just as important! Gum disease is a very serious oral condition that can dramatically affect your mouth. It’s hard to tell whether or not you have it, and it can lead to issues like tooth and bone loss. Make sure to visit us twice a year for regular checkups so that we can catch issues like gum disease in the early stages and prevent it from taking hold of your mouth.
When you face the prospect of wearing braces, you might not be so enthusiastic about having big, clunky, metal braces cluttering up your smile. Fortunately, we offer a totally clear, plastic aligner option that accomplishes the same goal called Invisalign! With this system, no one will be able to tell you are having your teeth straightened.
For those that want a brighter smile, we offer several in-office and take-home whitening options.
