General Dentistry

When you come to our office, the first thing we will do is sit down with you, review your dental history, check in with you about any dental issues you are having, and answer any questions you may have.

After that, we will perform a comprehensive dental exam that determines what further course of treatment is necessary, if any. Once we have those results, we will go over them with you and together, we will determine how to proceed with a treatment plan.

General dental treatments may include:

 Dental X-rays » We Our dentists and hygienists use a digital x-ray machine that not only reduces radiation use by 90%, but also cuts waste by eliminating the need for film and chemicals.

Periodontal service » This is a fancy way to say that we help you preserve your gums. Gum disease is exceedingly common and is caused by bacteria that forms an infectious plaque between the teeth that then begins to destroy gum tissue. If your gums bleed when probed, flossed, or brushed, you have gum disease, and we’ll assess the degree of infection and prescribe an appropriate treatment, which may be as simple as showing you how to cure the infection yourself. Though easy to overlook, there is a growing body of evidence linking gum disease with cardiovascular disease and diabetes, along with other afflictions. We’ll make sure you know your situation. Often the solution is a simple one and one of our dentists can help you resolve the issue quickly.

Dental Sealants » Sealants are thin plastic coverings placed over the chewing surface of molars to keep plaque out and help maintain cavity-free teeth.

Dental Fillings » The type of filling you get should be personalized to fit your situation; one size fits all does not apply. We’ll select the appropriate material and technique for your teeth. When matching the filling to fit to your tooth with tooth-colored composite plastic, we use the strongest, most advanced materials and methods of placement to make sure they are comfortable and create natural-looking teeth.

Dental Crowns and Bridges » A crown is necessary when large areas of decay or a tooth fracture make it impossible or unwise to place a filling. A crown will bolster the tooth and ensure that further breakdown is prevented. A bridge is used to replace missing teeth by creating a support structure between two adjacent teeth.
