Check-ups and Dental Cleanings
Routine dental cleanings and check-ups are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning will remove plaque which, if not properly removed, can overtime cause more serious and costly conditions.
Dental Exams and X-Rays
Dental exams, x-rays, and other diagnostic procedures are important in evaluating your oral health and hygiene. They help the dentist to determine if you need tooth restoration or replacement, and to offer you valuable recommendations on preventative care.
A root canal is a procedure that helps save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected, by removing the nerve and pulp inside the tooth, and cleaning and sealing it. Without treatment, the tissue around the tooth can become infected and abscess may form.
Composite fillings are used to restore decayed teeth (cavities) and provide resistance against fractures caused from chewing. Composite material can also be used for cosmetic improvements of the tooth, such as to fix its shape or color.
Prosthodontics, also known as dental prosthetics, includes the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and maintanence of the oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of patients with missing or deficient teeth. Procedures include dentures, regular crowns, crowns on implant, and bridges.
An extraction is a removal of the tooth due to disease, trauma, or crowding. Extraction services are provided when the dentist determines that certain teeth are beyond restorative care.
