Cosmetic dentistry

This a term generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and bite.

Comprehensive oral evaluation

This examination is provided to new patients that come for their first visit. It involves a pre-rinse, an oral cancer screening, a review of medical and dental history, and also an inquiry into any medications that the patient may be taking. When the patient is established, we provide a periodic oral evaluation, which will determine any changes in dental or health status since any previous evaluation.

Prophylaxis

This is the official name for a cleaning of the teeth, including removal of plaque, materia alba, calculus, and extrinsic stains. This procedure should be done at least twice a year to maintain adequate dental health.

Sensitive teeth

Pain from sensitive teeth is not always constant, it can come and go. Constant pain is an indication of a problem. Sensitive teeth can be caused by receding gums, fractured or chipped teeth or clenching and grinding. Sensitivity occurs when there is a breakdown in tooth enamel, exposing dentin. Common triggers to tooth sensitivity are hot or cold food or beverages, and sweets.

Composite fillings

Our office provides natural-looking fillings that are made out of composite synthetic resins, which are used in dentistry as restorative material or adhesives. Synthetic resins evolved as restorative materials since they were insoluble, aesthetic, insensitive to dehydration and easy to manipulate. They are colored to match natural tooth enamel which provides better esthetic look of teeth.

Root canal treatment (endodontic therapy)

This is a series of treatments for the pulp of a tooth to eliminate infection and to protect the decontaminated tooth from any future microbial invasion. This set of procedures is commonly referred to as a root canal. The associated pulp chambers are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with tiny files and irrigating solutions. This is then followed with the filling of the decontaminated canals.

Dentures

Also referred to as false teeth, dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. Typically, these are removable and adhered to soft or hard tissues in the mouth or mounted to a dental implant. We provide partial and full, upper and lower dentures. While partial dentures can be made in a short time, full dentures require 4-5 appointments, dependant upon the availability of the patient. Once completed, we provide adjustment services to modify the dentures for a perfect fit at absolutely no charge to the patient. Immediate dentures can also be provided and worn immediately after the removal of affected natural teeth.

Implants

These are synthetic structures placed in the socket of a missing tooth. These implants are anchored to the jawbone or a metal framework on the bone and serve as the foundation for an artificial tooth (such as a crown) or a permanent bridge. These implants are then used to provide support for dentures. The process of creating an implant and mounting dentures can require several separate appointments.
