Modern dentistry has made great strides in recent years, but nothing takes the place of good, old-fashioned preventive care when it comes to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. The best way to ensure good oral health is to make sure you come in regularly for examinations and cleanings at least twice each year.
In dentistry, the earlier problems are detected, the better. By visiting us every six months, we can detect problems while they are still small and easier to treat. In most cases, the earlier problems are dealt with, the less invasive the solution—and the less expensive it is.
General and Preventive Services
Coming into one of our two offices every six months for examinations and cleanings is the best way to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. With regular visits, we can stay ahead of tooth decay and other problems, such as gum disease.
If you are worried about tooth decay, we can talk to you about fluoride treatments and sealants—whatever your age. If you are suffering from gum disease, we can talk to you about effective periodontal therapy to get your gums healthy again. If you need a cavity filled, we offer tooth-colored fillings that blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth color.
Routine visits will enable us to screen you for oral cancer. They will also enable us to take digital x-rays on a regular basis. With state-of-the-art digital technology, our dentists will be able to see things before they are visible to the naked eye.
If you have an emergency, we can offer same-day treatment in many cases, including root canal therapy and extractions.
For those patients who have had dental implants placed, we can provide the restorations for you. We also offer dental crowns to fix damaged teeth as well as dental bridges if you are missing teeth.
Even if your teeth are healthy, you might not be happy with your smile. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in.
We offer procedures such as Invisalign invisible braces and teeth whitening, both of which can provide you with a dramatic improvement to your smile.
If you have teeth that are cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, a dental crown might be able fix the problem and ultimately save your tooth.
