Dental EmergenciesDental Emergencies are serious issues that require immediate attention and care from a qualified professional. They can involve severe pain or discomfort, accompanied by broken or damaged teeth, bleeding gums, and swelling or infection in the mouth. Common dental emergencies include toothaches, knocked-out teeth, cracked or fractured teeth, abscesses, and TMJ disorders. If you experience any of these symptoms or signs of an emergency, seek help immediately. It is important to get treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage or complications that could lead to more expensive treatments down the road.
Dental RestorationsDental restorations are treatments that restore or improve the appearance, health and function of your smile. These procedures can include fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, veneers and more. Fillings are used to repair cavities caused by decay. Crowns are ceramic or porcelain caps that fit over a tooth to restore its shape, size and strength. Bridges replace missing teeth while also preventing adjacent teeth from shifting positions. Implants act as artificial roots where new crowns are mounted when teeth have become too damaged or infected to be saved. Veneers cover the surface of a tooth and create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dental restorations help you maintain good oral health and give you the perfect smile you desire!
Oral Hygiene / CleaningOral hygiene and cleaning are essential practices to maintain a healthy, attractive smile. Regular brushing and flossing help remove plaque buildup, which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste is optimal for removing food particles and bacteria from your teeth. Flossing at least once a day also helps clear debris from between teeth and along the gum line. Professional teeth cleanings by your dentist or dental hygienist can also help remove hardened plaque from hard-to-reach areas that you are unable to reach on your own. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits will keep your smile looking great!
Pediatric DentistryPediatric dentistry is a specialty field of dentistry that focuses on providing dental care to children. Pediatric dentists are specially trained in caring for children's unique dental needs, ensuring they receive the most appropriate care and treatment. Pediatric dentist visits typically start when your child reaches 3 years old or has all their baby teeth, whichever comes first. During the visit, they check the overall health of your child's mouth, assess any cavities or gum disease and provide preventive treatments such as sealants and fluoride treatments. They also educate parents about proper oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing so your child can keep their teeth healthy for years to come!
Orthodontics — Braces and Clear AlignersOrthodontic braces and clear aligners are two popular and effective treatments used to straighten teeth and correct bite misalignments. Braces are metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to each tooth and connected with wires, while clear aligners are custom-made plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Both treatments help move your teeth into their ideal position. Depending on the complexity of the case, treatment times can range from six months to four years or longer. With regular visits to your orthodontist for adjustments, you can expect an improved smile with straighter teeth in no time!
Root CanalsRoot canals are a type of dental procedure used to treat infected or damaged teeth. During a root canal, the dentist will remove the infected pulp, clean and shape the root canal, then fill it with a durable resin material. Most people don't experience any pain during the procedure, and it's typically completed within one or two visits to the dentist. While root canals may sound intimidating, they are actually quite common and often necessary to prevent tooth loss or further infection. After receiving a root canal, you may need to have a crown placed on your tooth for added protection.
Dental ImplantsDental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution to replace lost or missing teeth. Implants involve the insertion of a titanium post into your jawbone and then capping it with a porcelain crown or other dental prosthesis. Dental implants provide a secure, comfortable fit and look just like your natural teeth, making them an ideal choice for those looking for long-term tooth replacements. The procedure is relatively straightforward, with most people able to complete it in two visits to their dentist. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for years to come!
Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry involves a variety of procedures to improve the appearance of teeth and mouth. Common treatments can include professional tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and crowns. Cosmetic dentistry can help to repair chipped or broken teeth as well as discolored or crooked teeth. It can also be used to fix gaps between teeth, which may be caused by genetics or by grinding your teeth. With the right cosmetic dental care, you can have a beautiful smile that enhances your overall confidence and self-esteem!
Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is a great way to enhance your smile and give you an attractive, pearly white look. It involves using a bleaching gel that is applied to the teeth in order to remove deep stains and discoloration. As technology continues to evolve, so do the options for teeth whitening. The most common method of teeth whitening involves applying a professional-strength bleaching agent to your teeth. This can be done in a dental office or at home with over-the-counter products. With the right care, teeth whitening can help you achieve brighter, whiter teeth that last longer than ever before!
Sedation — Nitrous and IV SedationNitrous and IV sedation are two options available to those looking to reduce anxiety and stress levels during a dental procedure. Nitrous sedation is a mild sedative that is administered through inhalation. It offers patient relaxation with minimal side effects or risks. IV sedation is a stronger form of sedation delivered intravenously, resulting in deeper relaxation and possibly amnesia while the procedure is performed. Both methods of sedation can help improve patient comfort during procedures that may otherwise cause discomfort or pain. Experienced dentists will be able to advise you on which type of sedation best suits your needs prior to any procedure taking place.
Wisdom Teeth ExtractionWisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure that is necessary to prevent overcrowding and infections in the mouth. Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to come in, usually between ages 17-25. Due to their location, these molars can be difficult to clean, which can lead to serious dental issues such as gum disease or decay. If it's determined that wisdom tooth extraction is necessary, you may be put under general anesthesia so that there is no discomfort during the procedure. Afterwards, your dentist will give you instructions for proper healing and recovery. With careful care and attention after the wisdom teeth are extracted, you can look forward to a healthy smile free from complications arising from overcrowded teeth!
Guards, Bite AppliancesBite appliances such as guards and splints are designed to protect your teeth, mouth, and jaws from wear or damage. Guards can prevent grinding and clenching of the teeth, which is a common symptom of stress, anxiety, and sleep disorders. Bite appliances can also help to correct an improper bite or alignment of the teeth. They are specially crafted to fit each individual's mouth by a combination of impressions and measurements taken by your dentist. The appliance will be monitored during follow-up appointments to make sure that it is working correctly and giving you the desired result. With proper care and maintenance, a guard or splint can provide long-term protection for your mouth!
Neuromodulators and XeominXeomin is two popular neuromodulators used for cosmetic and medical purposes. A neuromodulator is an injectable toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum - Xeomin is a more purified form of the same toxin. These medications are used to temporarily relax facial muscles, which can reduce wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging on the face. Xeomin can also be used in a medical setting to treat certain conditions such as blepharospasm (eyelid spasms) and cervical dystonia (chronic neck muscle contractions). Injections usually take 10-15 minutes with minimal pain, and results can last up to 4 months depending on the patient's individual needs. Neuromodulators may be a great choice for those looking to reduce signs of aging or treat specific conditions!
TMJTMJ, or temporomandibular joint pain, is a disorder affecting the jaw joint located near the ear. Symptoms of TMJ may include difficulty opening and closing the mouth, as well as discomfort when eating, speaking, or yawning. The exact cause of TMJ is still unknown but several factors such as stress, arthritis and misalignment of teeth can contribute to its onset. Treatments range from physical therapy and rest to prescription medications and surgery in extreme cases. We have a variety of treatments and appliances that are effective in managing TMJ symptoms. If you’re suffering from chronic jaw pain, talk to us about your treatment options for TMJ today!
CEREC SAME DAY CROWNS
CEREC is a technology that allows dental professionals to create custom crowns, inlays, and onlays in just one appointment. In the past, getting a crown required two visits - one to prepare the tooth and take impressions, and another to have the permanent crown placed. With CEREC, the process is streamlined and efficient.
To begin, the tooth is first prepared for the crown. Then, digital images of the tooth are taken using an intraoral camera and used to create a 3D model. A milling unit is used to create the ceramic or zirconia crown, which is then painted and glazed to match the rest of the teeth. The final step is bonding the crown to the prepared tooth, which only takes a few minutes - The entire process typically takes around two hours.
