Diagnostic Using Digital X-ray

(Minimal Radiation)

We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to the computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to image other teeth and supporting bone structure in

your mouth. The digital X-ray system is more sensitive than the regular X-ray

film system; therefore, your X-ray exposure is reduced by as much as 70 percent. The large and enhanced colored  images lets you what your dentist sees, so it is easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth. Your dental check-ups take less time and its is fun to watch this system work. Most patients are amazed.

After diagnosis, you are offered several treatment plan options to suit your needs, budget, and insurance plan if applicable.

Preventive

Regular Cleaning

Fluoride Application

Deep Cleaning

Irrigation

Restorative Using Toothlike Colored Restorative Materials

This procedure can be done in a single office visit. Your dentist chooses from a variety of filling options based on the type and location of the filling.

 
 

Treating Gum Disease Through Diagnostic Treatment and Maintenance

Causes of Gum Disease

Periodontitis

Moderate gum disease happens when the tooth's bone tissue starts to deteriorate. Periodontitis occurs when plaque byproducts destroy the tissues that anchor your teeth in the bone. Gums deteriorate and begin detaching themselves from the teeth forming gum pockets, which allows more plaque to collect below gum line. This causes the roots of the teeth to become susceptible to decay. Generally, patients notice an increase in sensitivity to hot and to cold and to touch.

Plaque

Biofilm or mass of bacteria that grows on surfaces within the mouth.

Probing

Measuring pocket depths around a tooth in order to establish the state of health of the periodontium.

Cosmetic Dentistry Including:

Porcelain Crowns and Bridges, Veneers, and Teeth Whitening to restore your smile  

   

Whitening

Tooth Whitening is the most requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure. Tooth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration.

Cavities need to be treated before whitening can be performed because the whitening solution can penetrate  decay and reach inner areas of the tooth , which can cause sensitivity.  Receding gums can cause roots to become exposed. Whitening will not work on exposed tooth roots, because roots do not have an enamel layer. Whitening also does not work on tooth restoration such as crowns or veneers.

Whitening can be done in our office or at your home.

Home Whitening

Involves placing a gel-like whitening solution, which usually contains hydrogen peroxide, in  a tray that resembles a night guard. Over the counter mouthpieces are unlikely to fit correctly and can cause gum irritation if the whitening agent seeps out. The tray is then placed over the teeth for a certain period of time- anywhere from an hour or two to overnight. 

Bonding

Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.​

Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes:

To improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth

To close slight spaces between teeth

To make teeth look longer or 

To change the shape or color of teeth

Bridges

Bridges are a non-removable tooth replacement option that can replace a single or a row of missing teeth

Fixed Bridges

 While a removable bridge is built to attach to surrounding teeth and can be taken out for cleaning, fixed bridges are attached to dental implants for a permanent, worry-free solution that looks and acts like your natural teeth.

Filling Types

There are several choices that you have when it comes to filling a cavity.

Composite Fillings- Composite fillings are today's modern filling choice.They are made to match your tooth's natural color to make them visually invisible to notice and are placed onto the tooth by bonding the filling material to the tooth  so they don't have the unlikely chance of falling off. Many patients choose to replace their old silver and gold fillings with composite fillings.

Silver fillings- Silver (amalgam fillings) are the most common type of fillings.  Silver fillings are beginning to fade out because of the more attractive, conservative and practical composite filling.

Gold Fillings- They are an old form of a filling restoration. They are soft so they form nicely to the tooth's crown. Although they may be more costly than conventional silver fillings, they are more attractive than amalgam.

Porcelain provides state of the art strength, beauty and durability.

 
 
 
 

Zirconia Crowns​​

Zirconium is becoming one of the most chosen materials for dental crowns. Its many advantages include:

  • Extraordinarily tough

  • Can withstand wear and tear

  • Translucent enough to be similar to natural teeth

  • Less tooth removal

  • No Metal fuse

  • Modifiable size, shape and color

  • Biocompatible

Flexible Partial Dentures

Most flexible partial dentures involve very simple preparation because your natural teeth don't need to be altered in any way. Flexible partials can be virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps to cover your natural teeth. Furthermore, most flexible materials blend with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.

Full Arch Denture

A removable complete denture, an appliance that sits on top of the gums where the missing teeth were, is a low-cost alternative to dental implant restoration. 

Functional Crown Lengthening

If a tooth is worn, decayed, or fractured below the gum line, crown lenghtening adjusts the gum and bone levels to gain access to more of the tooth so it can be restored. Funtional crown legthening is an important part of an integrated effort to optimize your health, appearance, comfort and function.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, an endodontist who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.

 

Removable Prosthetics:

Complete Denture, Partial Denture, Regular and Flexible

 

Crowns

 

Implants

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.

Denture - Implant Supported (Overdenture)

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.

Removable dental prostheses are dental restorations that can be removed by the patient when using it is not necessary. Dentures are the most common removable dental prosthesis in the market and are, by far, the most common way that most patients choose to replace their missing teeth. The reason behind this is that, despite all the other advancements in dental technology, removable dental prosthesis are noninvasive and will not require any surgical incisions or painful recovery. Removable dental prosthesis are supported by surrounding tissues in the oral cavity and may be conveniently removed by the patient when not in use and replaced whenever necessary.

A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. Inarguably beneficial to dental health.
