Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to overall physical health. Cleanings remove buildup of tartar and plaque on teeth, especially in areas that may be difficult to clean effectively with regular brushing and flossing. In some cases root planning, the cleaning of bacterial debris from the root surface and periodontal pockets, is used to ensure optimal oral health and prevent gum disease.
Non-Surgical Gum Treatment and Deep Cleanings
If a regular teeth cleaning is not sufficient to remove plaque and tartar buildup, the dentist will employ scaling and root planning. This is a deep-cleaning procedure done under a local anesthetic. The dentist will remove plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline (scaling) and smooth out rough spots on the tooth (planning) to remove bacteria and provide a healthy surface for gum reattachment.
Tooth Colored Fillings
In the case of a cavity, the area of decay is removed, and the natural-looking composite resin is filled in its place. These subtle fillings conserve your essential tooth structure and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Crowns are caps that are custom fit and placed over teeth that have been broken or misshapen as a result of grinding, decay, age, an improper bite or various other causes. They leave each patient with strong, beautiful teeth.
Root canals repair and save a tooth that has become badly decayed or infected. The root and pulp of the tooth are removed and the area inside is thoroughly cleaned and sealed preventing further decay or infection. It is then often fitted with a custom crown and post to ensure the strength and durability of the tooth.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They are custom designed to bridge the gap between teeth by securing an artificial tooth between two dental crowns on either side of the gap. The result is a beautiful, gap-free smile.
Extractions are done to remove severely damaged teeth or wisdom teeth. They are carried out precisely and with care under the dentist’s skillful hand.
Dentures are uniquely fit, removable replacements for a patient with missing teeth. While a bridge is a permanent fixture used to replace one or several teeth, dentures are needed when a large number of teeth are missing. Complete dentures are fitted when all of the teeth are missing and partial dentures are used if some of the patient’s natural teeth remain. Dentures allow a patient to speak, chew, and smile with a renewed sense of comfort and confidence.
Veneers are thin, custom made strips of porcelain or resin composite material. They conceal chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth and they do not stain like normal dental enamel. They are designed to each patient’s ideal tooth color and cover the front surface of the tooth to leave you with a winning smile.
Dental Implant Restoration
A dental implant is a titanium “root” device used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth, group of teeth or to replace missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses including: crowns, implant supported bridges or dentures.
