General Dentistry

It involves diagnosis, treatment and maintenance, as well as prevention. Thus, general dentistry covers a wide spectrum and involves the type of things you associate with going to the dentist - routine examinations, cleanings, and the occasional filling or crown. Below is a more comprehensive list of our general dentistry services.

Dental Exam


We will thoroughly evaluate your gums, teeth, tongue, and oral health. We check for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and check how your teeth are functioning. X-rays will be taken when appropriate.

Dental Cleaning


Routine dental cleanings are essential, as they keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, and allow us to monitor the condition of your oral health. Our highly skilled dental hygienists will gently but thoroughly remove plaque and tartar, and also work with the dentist to identify findings and make recommendations for your optimal oral health.

Oral Cancer Screening


Cancer screening can be a frightening scenario for some people, but it should not be. The truth is oral cancer screenings done consistently offer you the opportunity to discover problems early when they can be treated more easily and successfully. If you have questions about our oral cancer screening procedures, then please visit our office so our professional staff can guide you through the procedure.

Tooth Filling


Composite resins have replaced the use of amalgam (silver fillings) as the preferred restorative material to restore cavities; additionally, composite works well to fix defects such as cracks or chips. Our advanced techniques allow us to blend the composite in to match your natural tooth.

Dental Crown


Crowns are used to restore a more damaged tooth that would not be adequately supported if restored with composite.

Dental Bridge


Bridges are when crowns are adjoined on adjacent teeth with a missing tooth in the middle to fill the gap with a "floating" crown which would look and function like the missing tooth.

Root Canal


Root canal therapy is performed when a tooth has become infected or irreversibly inflamed. It involves the removal of the damaged nerve and pulpal tissue from the roots. The roots are then filled with medicine and a biocompatible, inert material to prevent future problems. Root canals are a great treatment modality that can save an otherwise hopeless tooth and provide profound relief caused by an inflamed nerve.

Tooth Extraction


Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved and needs to come out. Surprisingly, this is typically an easy, gentle, and quick procedure with minimal post-op pain.

Periodontal Care


Your periodontal (gum) tissues are just as important as your teeth. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Periodontal disease is the result of an infection in the gum tissues, connective ligaments, and eventually the alveolar bone.

The disease is characterized by gums that are swollen, red, and tend to bleed during brushing and flossing. Luckily, periodontal disease is easy to prevent and treat if it is caught early enough. If we notice signs of advanced periodontal disease, we may recommend a scaling and root planing procedure. The goal is to return your gums to a pink, healthy state.

Mouthguard


A mouthguard will protect your teeth and prevent dental emergencies. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we may recommend a night guard. Many patients with bruxism tend to grind their teeth during sleep. A night guard acts as a barrier that prevents enamel wear.

Sports Guard


Contact sports or sports with moving objects can be a very dangerous environment for your teeth. One extreme tackle or a ball hit into the mouth can do serious, sometimes permanent, damage to the jaw and mouth. If you participate in physical activities that put you at risk for dental trauma or injury, we strongly recommend a custom made sports mouthguard.

Sleep Apnea


Sleep apnea is characterized by the repeated cessation of breathing during sleep. There are three main types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central, and complex. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form caused by the relaxation of the muscles in the throat. We offer oral appliances to alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea. An oral appliance can provide you with safer and more restful sleep!

TMJ


The temporo­mandibular joint (TMJ), allows us to move our joint forwards, backward, and side-to-side. Any problems that prevent us from using this joint properly are known as TMD or temporo­mandibular joint disorders. We provide some treatments designed to alleviate any pain or discomfort associated with the TMJ.
