What General Dentistry Services Do We Offer?
Comprehensive Dental Exams
A comprehensive dental examination begins with a review of your medical conditions. A careful Oral Cancer evaluation is performed. We will also evaluate the health and function of your jaw joints (TMJs) and your bite. We will check the health of your teeth and gums and evaluate the bone supporting your teeth in order to detect any possible problems as early as possible. Digitial dental xrays and digital photographs are also a part of a comprehensive examination. By being as thorough as possible we can discover and then prevent any problems from worsening and causing painful and costly dental issues. If you have any tooth pain or other causes for concern, feel free to discuss these issues with us during your exam so that we can suggest proper care.
Having your teeth routinely cleaned by a dental professional, like those at our practice, is a vital part of any good oral health regimen. During a professional cleaning, one of our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar that can’t be removed through normal brushing and flossing.
Oral Health Instruction
Would you like more in-depth information for you or your children on how to brush and floss effectively? We can help by providing hands-on instruction and/or written materials to ensure that you are effectively following your oral health routines.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects thousands of people, which is why an oral cancer screening is an important part of maintaining your dental health. Our experienced dental professionals are trained on what to look for regarding irregularities of your teeth, gums and mouth so that if oral cancer is present, it can most likely be detected early, when it can be more easily treated.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment
We offer a variety of treatments for gum-related conditions, including gingivitis and periodontitis. These gum disease treatments are aimed at controlling the infection caused by bacteria that has collected in the gums.
Deep cleaning of the roots of your teeth (including scaling, or scraping tartar from above and below the gum line) as well as medications may prove effective in these cases.
When tooth decay or other factors cause fractures and other damage to the teeth, a dental filling may be used to strengthen tooth structure. Composite or porcelain (“tooth-colored”) fillings are offered as the most natural-looking filling material.
To strengthen tooth structure or replace missing or damaged teeth, we provide several restorative dental treatments that include dental implants, crowns, bridges and dentures. Depending on your dental health, age and other factors, we will suggest one or more of these procedures for the restoration of your optimal dental health.
