Our trained dental hygienists perform thorough cleanings at standard visits. Regularly cleanings not only improve tooth and gum health, but prevent against cavities and more serious problems. These cleanings help remove plaque build-up in the nooks and crannies that you might not be able to reach when you brush your teeth. We finish each cleaning with a fluoride treatment, to polish off a full-service cleaning.
For those looking to straighten your teeth by going the more discrete route, we take an oral mold of your mouth’s shape to fit you with virtually invisible aligners. These aligners are custom fit to your mouth to store proper formation of the teeth, bringing you that bright smile you’ve always envisioned.
We work from start to finish to design custom braces for you that will bring out that wide smile you’ve always wanted to show. We use our state-of-the-art digital X-ray machines and custom molds to prepare a custom blue print to straighten your teeth. Our hygienists take special care by ensuring patient comfort during the initial procedure as well as the regularly scheduled tightening. The length of time for wearing braces can vary depending on the demand of the structure, but our team will work closely with you to ensure proper formation and restore a healthy smile.
If a tooth needs repair from decay or a fracture, a filling can restore your tooth’s strength and eliminate that nagging pain. We use composite filings, that have a white color, matching the color of your teeth so that we can provide our customers with the best aesthetic option. These fillings are strong, durable and will withstand the test of time.
For deeper tooth decay or fractures, a filling might not do the trick. This is when we conduct Root Canal Therapy (RCT). Root Canals are recommended when the inner pulp of a tooth becomes infected. Signs of this infection include: sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, visible swelling, pain in the gums or jaw area and discoloration. Our Root Canal procedure removes the infected pulp from the canals of the tooth and the core then becomes sterilized and typically filled with a crown to protect the mended tooth.
Extractions (simple & surgical)
When a root canal is not a suitable option, our dentist can perform extractions to remove diseased teeth. Our staff use gentle care to provide patients with the most painless extraction, and schedule follow-ups to re-visit the state of the mouth.
