Oral conscious sedation is a common form of sedation dentistry that uses oral medication to help you to relax and feel comfortable during a dental procedure. The oral medication is typically given to you prior to your procedure, with specific instructions on when you should take the medication before your appointment.
Many times, patients are hesitant to go to the dentist because of the sounds and vibrations caused by the dental drill. This is why we use laser technology in our office, since it is easier, painless and quicker than traditional drills.
A cone beam CT scan involves a special type of x-ray that allows us to see the details of your oral and facial health. This scan is more than just a typical x-ray, since it allows us to identify nerve pathways, soft tissue and bone before providing you with treatment.
Digital x-rays are the latest technology, and are much safer compared to traditional x-rays. With digital x-rays there is no concern with radiation exposure, and the new technology has very low levels of radiation.
Dental implants are a great way to completely replace a missing tooth. Single implants replace just one missing tooth at a time. The implant is typically made out of titanium, which is inserted deep into the jaw bone.
Both an inlay and onlay are restorations that can help to improve the look and feel of an otherwise damaged or compromised tooth. The restoration can be used to cover a tooth that has cracked or broken or to replace old fillings.
Implant-supported dentures involve a series of implants that are placed to hold the denture securely in your mouth. Many denture wearers complain that their appliances slip and fall out throughout the day, or the fit of the denture looks unnatural and is uncomfortable for them.
Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that can be added to the front of your smile. They help to cover up flaws and minor imperfections that might have you feeling badly about your appearance. Veneers are made specifically for each patient, so they feel and look completely natural.
Mouthguards can help patients that suffer from bruxism or teeth grinding, or for those who play sports. Occlusal mouthguards help to protect your teeth while you sleep to prevent you from grinding or clenching down.
Wisdom teeth will typically begin to develop around the time a person reaches adulthood. Unfortunately, if there isn't enough room for the teeth to come in properly, they become impacted underneath the gums.
Extractions are done as a way to preserve your oral health and remove problematic teeth. In some cases, you may need to have teeth removed because of advanced gum disease.
A full mouth reconstruction, which is more commonly called a smile makeover, is a treatment that involves completely revamping a patient's smile. Unfortunately, smiles can become dull or unsightly over time, whether this is caused by bad habits or chipping or losing a tooth.
Teeth whitening can provide patients with a bright white smile that builds confidence. Our teeth whitening systems provide quick and effective results, and patients can notice brighter and whiter teeth after only a few treatments.
A root canal is a procedure that involves taking out the entire pulp of a tooth. Each of your teeth has a pulp, which is often called the nerve. If this pulp becomes infected by decay or is damaged in any way, it will need to be removed.
Oral cancer can affect adults of any and all ages. Some patients are more at risk of developing oral cancer, like those who smoke or use chewing tobacco. However, we often recommend an annual oral cancer screening as a way to keep up on your oral health.
Nitrous sedation is ideal for patients who want to be relaxed and calm during their dental appointments. This type of sedative is safe, effective and can be used for patients of all ages. The process of administering nitrous oxide is easy and quick, and the effects wear off quickly once the procedure has been completed.
Invisalign is a treatment that uses clear aligner trays to gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces, and does not have any brackets or wires.
Intra-oral cameras are helpful in allowing us to see everything going on inside your mouth. Rather than a typical examination, this camera magnifies everything that it looks at concerning your smile. This allows us to see areas of decay, cracks, breaks and fractures as well as other intra-oral problems.
Gum grafting involves using a small piece of your own soft tissue to cover areas around teeth that have receded. Gum recession can be caused by aggressive brushing, smoking and gum disease.
Both a denture and partial will help to transform your entire smile. If you're missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed. Instead, we can make a personalized and customized denture to fit your needs.
A dental x-ray is an image that enables us to see underneath the surface of teeth and gums. These images can help us to see decay, infections, impacted teeth, bone loss and many other oral-related problems.
Fluoride is most commonly found in dental products, like toothpastes and mouthwashes. It is designed to protect and strengthen a person's teeth, making them less prone to developing cavities.
Endodontics is the field of dentistry that is specific to the dental pulp. Each of your natural teeth has a dental pulp inside of it. This pulp carries the blood supply and nerves that keep the tooth healthy and alive.
The iTero digital scanning device can be used to take highly-detailed images and scans of your teeth. These digital-based impressions can be used to create restorations like veneers, crowns, bridge work and even dentures.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients seeking that perfect white smile. Implants are a great choice for patients that have broken, damaged, or missing teeth. Implants act similar to an artificial tooth that is placed in the jawbone.
Sealants are thin, clear protective coverings that can be applied to the back teeth. They are meant to prevent cavities and deep staining that would otherwise occur if they weren't in place.
A dental filling is a restoration that is specifically used to fill in an area of one or more teeth that have become decayed. Dental decay, known as a cavity, can infiltrate a tooth and cause it to become weak.
A dental emergency can occur at virtually any time, regardless of how well you take care of your smile. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for many of these emergencies to leave a patient in severe pain and discomfort.
A dental implant is specifically designed to replace one or more teeth within your mouth. Implants are often made of titanium, and they are surgically inserted into the jawbone.
A dental crown is a type of restoration that is designed to fit over a damaged or compromised tooth. If a tooth has fractured, broken or has been recently root canaled, we may recommend that it be crowned.
Keeping your teeth healthy and clean requires more than diligent brushing and flossing at home. In many cases, plaque will build upon different areas of the teeth, hardening into a chalky white substance known as tartar.
A dental bridge is a restoration that helps to replace one or more missing natural teeth. The bridge attaches permanently to surrounding teeth, so it won't need to be removed and cleaned like a prosthetic appliance.
Clear Aligners are a treatment that gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that is essential for patients who have areas of bone loss around the jaw. Bone loss can often occur as a result of a variety of different conditions.
All-On-4 technology refers to placing four strategically planned implants to keep a denture in place. This prevents the need for more than just four implants to be used and all of the implants can be placed in one or two appointments.
