Cleanings & Exams
Quick! When was the last time you or your child had a dental cleaning? If it’s been more than six months, we recommend scheduling one as soon as possible. Regular dental cleanings give your dentist the opportunity to remove the plaque and tartar that build up on your teeth over time and can eventually cause tooth decay and cavities. During your cleaning, we’ll freshen up your teeth and do a full oral health exam so you can leave feeling like your smile is headed in the right direction!
We often get asked: when should I start bringing my child to see a dentist? Our answer: by their first birthday! By giving your child dental care at an early age, you give us the opportunity to help them avoid problems and get a head start on the road to lifelong dental health. Plus, we’ll be able to monitor their progress over time, provide oral health education, make recommendations for early orthodontic treatment, and more!
We recommend regular fluoride treatments to help keep your tooth enamel strong and healthy. Enamel is the hard outer surface of a tooth that protects the vulnerable interior of the tooth from infection or damage. Over time, enamel can get worn down. However, fluoride can help stimulate a process called tooth mineralization where the enamel actually rebuilds itself, helping prevent decay or cavities.
Sealants are a tool we use to protect hard-to-brush parts of a tooth from cavities. Essentially a thin coating of plastic that is applied to a crack or a crevice in a tooth that you may not be able to properly brush, a sealant forms a physical barrier to keep bacteria away so that your tooth stays healthy.
Partial & Full Dentures
Dentures are an affordable option for replacing missing teeth and filling in the gaps in your smile. We can make you a set of either full or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth you have lost, to hide any missing teeth so that you can start to smile with confidence again. Dentures can also be combined with dental implants for a sturdier hold and greater reliability.
If you have an infected or heavily damaged tooth that is causing you discomfort or interfering with your quality of life, we can perform a root canal to repair the tooth and alleviate your symptoms. During a root canal, your dentist will gently remove the soft tissue or pulp from the inside of the affected tooth and pack it with filler material before sealing it back up with a crown or a filling. This will remove any infection and help preserve the function of your tooth.
