Tooth-Colored Fillings

Fillings today have become more durable, longer-lasting and more natural-looking than ever before. Thanks to the latest dental advancements, a number of durable, natural tooth-colored composite or resin fillings exist to help to restore decayed or broken teeth easily and aesthetically.

Tooth Inlays/Onlays

As an alternative to fillings, inlays or onlays can be used to repair your damaged tooth. Inlays are used to repair a small area within the biting surface of the tooth, while onlays cover a larger area of damage. Inlays or onlays can be made from several different materials, including gold, porcelain or composite resin and are bonded to one’s natural tooth.

Tooth Extractions

If tooth decay has destroyed the structure of one’s tooth to a point where restoration is impossible, the tooth may need to be extracted. Teeth may also be extracted prior to the placement of a dental implant or to remove a wisdom tooth that is not breaking through the gums properly or threatens to crowd surrounding teeth.

Oral Sedation

We understand that many people are scared or anxious about going to the dentist. We offer a range of oral sedation procedures that can help put you at ease during your treatment. Don’t let fear of going to the dentist prevent you from getting the important dental care you need.

Preventive Dental Care

Preventive dental care can make the difference between a healthy and beautiful smile and a lifetime of dental problems. Keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful is simple. Daily brushing and flossing and regular visits to your dentist can make a world of difference. If you neglect your teeth, you may wind up having to spend time and money to get your teeth healthy again.

Preventing dental problems is much less expensive and time-consuming than having to deal with them. Here are a few tips from the American Dental Association (ADA) to help you keep your smile healthy and beautiful:

•    Regular dental exams and cleaning. It is recommended that you visit your dentist twice per year for check-ups and deep cleanings. During your routine dental exam, x-rays of your teeth and gums are taken to check for cavities, gingivitis, gum disease and other issues beneath the gum line. Professional teeth cleaning is also essential to clean areas that are hard to reach with regular flossing and brushing. Dentists can see issues that are just beginning to form and take protective measures ensure that they do not worsen and cause additional problems.

•    Proper at-home oral hygiene. Proper dental care at home can make a big difference. Brushing and flossing two times each day or after meals can help remove food particles, plaque and bacteria that can build up, causing serious problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease.

•    Fluoride treatments. Fluoride treatments come in many forms including in toothpastes, mouthwashes, professional fluoride treatments and even in in public water fluoridation. Fluoride treatments are effective at both strengthening your teeth and helping stave off tooth decay and disease.

•    Healthy diet. A healthy diet can play a big part in the health of your teeth. Eating sugary sweets or not getting enough calcium can increase the levels or your dental plaque, as well as your chance of developing tooth decay or periodontal disease.

•    Avoid smoking and tobacco usage. Tobacco and smoking can cause your teeth to become discolored, as well as lead to oral cancer or gum disease. For the sake of your oral and overall health, it is best to avoid these substances to keep your teeth and gums healthy and attractive.
Periodontal disease can be a painful and damaging condition that can be easily avoided with some basic preventive care. By visiting your dentist regularly, brushing and flossing daily, and avoiding harmful foods and substances, you can keep your smile bright and healthy for a lifetime.
