Your health is important to us, which is why we listen to your concerns and expectations before an exam. We want to make sure you are comfortable with the plan and procedure which is why we give you the information you need to make an informed decision about the evaluation. We will gather data from your exam and review the accuracy before suggesting options for your personalized care. Correctly Identifying your needs is a priority and  we will address any problem areas to decide on a treatment plan with your cooperation.
Digital imaging helps diagnose potential oral disease and other ailments that may not be visible to the naked eye. Our use of digital imaging over conventional x-rays gives us improved accuracy when analyzing your results, as well as reducing exposure to radiation. Our priority is your safety and the prevention of disease, therefore we treat our patients with the utmost care when it comes to x-rays. We discuss options with you to make sure you feel comfortable with any treatment plans. If you are pregnant, we have protective equipment for use and will listen to your concerns in order to craft your individualized procedure.
Dental hygiene is crucial to keeping your mouth free and clear of build up, as well as early detection and prevention of more serious oral disease. Scheduling regular check ups will help us find any issues quickly and keep your mouth clean and clear. We use specialized tools during your scheduled teeth cleaning to remove build up, and give you a professional brush, floss and rinse. Lastly, we apply a fluoride treatment that will give you added protection long after you leave. The amount of time and process used depends on your home care routine, so make sure you floss, brush and rinse to ensure a healthy smile before and after your scheduled cleaning!
Cavities can cause pain, broken teeth, tooth loss, they are visually unappealing, and in rare cases can lead to infections that when left untreated can be life threatening. We apply a composite resin, also known as a tooth-colored filling, made from a mixture of glass/quartz and plastic resin to ensure your teeth remain strong and functional for years to come. Our fillings are made to match your tooth color and keep your teeth looking natural so you get a functional solution with a cosmetic bonus! Treating cavities before they are too severe is key. If your cavity is untreatable, we will consult with you to determine which treatment option is best. Prevention is better than a cure.
Follow these steps to keep your teeth cavity free:

Floss every day
Brush twice per day with fluoride toothpaste
Adopt a healthy diet
Return for scheduled appointments

If you have lost a tooth, it is imperative that it is replaced to avoid over-eruption, where by the opposing tooth loses the structure needed to hold it in place. This leaves room for the opposing tooth to slide into the void created from the missing tooth, which can alter your bite and expose the root. We use a bridge to replace lost teeth. When replacing a lost tooth, the two teeth on either side are prepared to be custom fitted with a ceramic/composite material that is cemented in order to hold the bridge in place. This process disturbs healthy teeth, so we recommend dental implants to replace lost teeth.
Sealants are applied as a liquid and cured to provide a barrier on the occlusal surface of a molar, which is the area that presses against the opposite tooth. This surface contains difficult to clean pits and fissures that can trap food and allow bacteria to grow causing tooth decay and cavities. In fact, 80% of decay on permanent teeth develops in this area while teeth young. Sealants are a preventative approach to oral care and, according to the American Dental Association, can help in curbing the formation of cavities by 80%.
