State-of-THE-Art Dental Treatments
Dental Exams & Cleanings
A bi-annual (every six months) exam is recommended to keep your teeth healthy. This exam also allows our team to detect early signs of tooth decay or gum disease, and begin treatment before it becomes a more significant problem. During the cleaning portion of your visit, we will clean tartar and plaque from your teeth as well as polish them to remove any stains.
Digital x-rays use an electronic sensor rather than an x-ray film to capture an image of your teeth and gums. The image can be instantly viewed and enlarged to help us detect any issues earlier in the process. An added benefit is that these x-rays reduce radiation exposure by 80-90%, making them safer than traditional dental x-rays.
Fluoride has been proven to help prevent tooth decay. When fluoride is coupled with brushing and flossing on a regular basis, you put yourself in the best position for maintaining your healthy smile. Topical fluoride is found in dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels. However, we recommend children receive fluoride treatments twice a year during their bi-annual exams. We also prescribe fluoride treatments.
Root Canal Therapy
When the nerve of the tooth is decayed or infected, root canal therapy is recommended. To save the tooth, the tissue inside the tooth, nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and, the space is then filled with medication to restore the tooth to its full function.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of molars and premolars. These can also be applied to any tooth with a deep groove where the vast majority of tooth decay begins. Sealants provide that extra layer of protection as well as creating a smooth, easy-to-clean surface.
