We want every new and returning patient to feel comfortable and secure. We routinely see patients who have never been to the dentist or haven’t been to the dentist in a very long time and have several dental needs. If you’re making an appointment for a child, we have special dental appointments just for kids! We promise NOT to make our patients feel bad or lecture them about their dental health. We strive to provide treatment recommendations, build good habits and get our patients back on track in a way that fits their budget. From our flexible payment options to our kind and gentle touch, we promise to provide an enjoyable dental experience.
The exam is to evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene. A dental x-ray allows the dentist to see detailed images of the patient’s mouth and anything that could be wrong and not visible to the eye. This can include tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease.
First, the doctor will check the health of the patient’s teeth and repair any damage if any, after that impressions are taken. From the impressions, plastic trays are created which the patient will use at home with special whitening gels.
A bridge is a natural looking restoration attached to the teeth next to a missing tooth which usually consists of three-units but can be up to five-units. A bridge is supported by two crowns or abutments that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap. The artificial tooth replacing the missing tooth is called pontic.
Root canals are needed when the nerve or “pulp” of the tooth becomes infected or dies and needs to be removed. Once removed, the nerve canal is then filled with a specialized rubber material to resolve the infection and relieve any discomfort.
