Tooth decay and gum disease affect more than just your smile. They affect your overall health and well-being; left untreated, you could be at risk for a number of different illnesses.

It’s easy to monitor the health of your teeth with regular dental hygiene. In addition to brushing and flossing daily, a cleaning to remove excess plague is one of the surest ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Tooth decay is the result of bacteria breaking down the mineral structure of a tooth. In its earliest stages, decay requires a simple filling, but as it progresses the care needed to restore the tooth can be significant.

We utilize innovative tools and procedures to keep your gums and teeth healthy. Our solutions are based upon your personal needs and budget. In many cases we can deliver the care you need in just one visit. In addition to cleanings, here’s a sampling of the general dentistry we provide:

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is used to rebuild the jawbone or in conjunction with a tooth extraction to preserve bone heights. Sometimes, bone grafting is done to accommodate a dental implant.

Bridges

A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth by permanently anchoring the restored tooth to the adjacent teeth. It’s important to replace a missing tooth to prevent the adjacent teeth from loosening or shifting.

Crowns

When a tooth is broken, severely damaged by decay or at risk of fracture due to large fillings, a crown is applied to strengthen the tooth. We are able to create crowns that resemble the original structure of the tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent way to permanently  replace missing teeth without altering adjacent teeth.The process takes approximately six months and is often a superior alternative to bridges or partial dentures. Dental implants can also be used to stabilize loose fitting  dentures.

Dentures/Partial Dentures

Dentures are used to replace missing teeth.  We strive to make them as comfortable and natural as possible.  Restoring not only function with chewing, but confidence when smiling.

Extractions

Sometimes tooth decay is so extreme that extraction is the only solution. When that is the case, we provide painless extraction along with the follow-up necessary to restore your smile with our expert cosmetic dentistry.

Fillings

We repair cavities using tooth-colored dental composites so that your filling is undetectable. The fillings are bonded in place, require less tooth removal and provide added strength to your tooth.

Fractures

We are able to repair fractured teeth by using composite resin to bond the fractured back together. This procedure is usually completed in just one visit.

Inlays/Onlays

When the structure of a tooth is heavy damaged by decay or a fracture, an inlay or onlay may be necessary to restore appearance and bite, protect against recurrent decay and/or properly align with the gum tissue.

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease can result in major damage to soft tissue and bone supporting your teeth. Prolonged disease can result in the loss of teeth, as well as poor health in other areas of your body. The good news is that chronic inflammatory periodontal diseases are treatable. We assess the level of gum disease and provide treatment options to restore health to your gums.

Root Canals

Sometimes severe tooth decay leads to irreversibly damaged or infected nerves. When this occurs, root canal therapy is performed.  During this procedure we will remove the infected tissue, clean and fill the canals.  Normally a crown will be recommended after this procedure to restore the tooth.
