Dental Exams and Cleaning

Dental Exams and Cleaning

During our thorough exams, we take the time to assess all aspects of your oral health.  The exams include: review of diagnostic x-rays to detect potential decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss as well as tooth and root positions; oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, examination of tooth decay, examination of any existing restorations.  During cleanings we remove plaque and calculus (tartar), and polish your teeth.

X-Rays

Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that offer information not visible during a regular dental exam.  They are used to safely and accurately discover hidden dental abnormalities and complete a thorough treatment plan.  Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Oral Cancer Exam

Oral Cancer Exam

According to research conducted by the American Cancer society, more than 30,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year.  More than 7,000 of these cases result in the death of the patient.  The good news is that oral cancer can easily be diagnosed with an annual oral cancer exam, and effectively treated when caught in its earliest stages.

Sealants

Sealants

The sealant is applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth.  More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves.  Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay.  A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface. Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years but need to be checked for wear and chipping at regular dental visits.

Porcelain Fixed Bridges

There are several types of bridges.  You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case.  The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal.  Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth.  This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics(artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist – a specialist of the gums and supporting bone.  The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Dentures are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.  There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures.  Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.  A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.

Invisalign®

Invisalign®

One of the primary concerns people often have about dental braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile.  Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging.  Invisalign® offers an almost invisible aligning system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are usually the last four of 32 teeth to erupt (surface) in the mouth, generally making their appearance between the ages of 17 to 25. They are located at the back of the mouth (top and bottom), near the entrance to the throat. The term “wisdom” stems from the idea that the molars surface at a time typically associated with increased maturity or “wisdom”.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini Dental Implants

Unlike full implant placement where multiple dental visits are required, MDIs eliminate the need for surgery.  The development of long term MDIs now allows the dentist to place anchors in the jaw during one noninvasive treatment.  The most common use for MDIs is the stabilization of dentures and overdentures.  MDIs firmly anchor the dental prosthesis, which means there is no longer any need to suffer with ill-fitting, loose dentures.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

The term sleep apnea is derived from the Greek etymology meaning “without breath”. Breathing pauses can last anywhere from several seconds to minutes, and happen as often as 30 times or more per hour. Ongoing disrupted breathing causes an imbalance between the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the bloodstream, as not enough carbon dioxide is exiting and not enough oxygen is entering the body.

Sleep Apnea Appliances

Sleep Apnea Appliances

There are a number of dental devices that can be used to alleviate this condition. The goal of most of these devices is to separate the jaws and push them forward slightly.  This slight repositioning opens up the airway, and allows oxygen to flow freely again.  Wearers of sleep apnea dental devices report that they stop loud snoring, feel more rested in the daytime, and are much more comfortable going to sleep.  Sleep apnea appliances work best on patients who are not significantly overweight. They offer a viable alternative to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).

Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction

Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction

TMJ is characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, and an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can effectively treat.
