Our practice offers comprehensive oral healthcare so that residents of our area can achieve and maintain good oral health. Keeping routine appointments for checkups and cleanings is essential for maintaining oral health and detecting oral disease and potential problems as early as possible. When problems do arise, we will work with you to treat them conservatively and effectively.
An oral health checkup is more thorough than many people think. During checkups, our dentists will look for signs and symptoms of more than gum disease and cavities. Our team will perform oral cancer screenings and evaluate the health of the jaws and glands in the neck.
The professional cleaning you receive at your checkup is essential to oral health. A dental cleaning is about more than just polishing teeth. Our dental hygienists use handheld instruments to remove substances like plaque and tartar that accumulate along the gums and in between teeth. Cleanings help prevent the development of gum disease since plaque and tartar irritate the gums and contribute to gum recession.
When areas of decay are detected, restorations are needed to strengthen teeth. Restorations like fillings, onlays, and crowns will prevent a cavity from destroying the deepest portions of a tooth while also protecting its external structure.
Extractions are sometimes a necessity – especially as a preventive measure when wisdom teeth begin to emerge. Wisdom teeth can contribute to a number of oral health problems including tooth misalignment, TMJ disorder, cavities and gum disease. Teeth that become broken or diseased beyond repair also require removal as they can develop painful and aggressive infections called abscesses. When removing diseased teeth or wisdom teeth, we will do everything possible to keep you comfortable.
If you have broken a tooth or a toothache, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. We provide treatment for dental emergencies. If you have an emergency, please call our office as soon as you can so that we can make room for you in our schedule.
