Common Dental Procedures

From prevention to restorative dentistry: We offer the entire range of modern dentistry to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful for your entire life. Get an overview here of some of the most commonly referred to procedures.

Regular Exam and Professional Cleanings

Our preventive measures ensure the continued good health of your gums and teeth. We’ll also take special care of existing dental work and any implants or prostheses you may have.

 

We detect and treat problems like tooth decay at an early stage. That way you will always be happy with your teeth.

Fillings

 

During your exam, your dentist will check your current fillings to make certain they are not decayed, damaged or loose.  If any cavities are discovered, they may also need to be filled.  If you have a cavity that isn't filled, it can become larger over time and cause oral health complications or more invasive restoration.  Most fillings are done by removing the decayed portion of the tooth, then filling the tooth with composite material that is tooth colored.  Fillings are typically done in 1 appointment. 

Oral Cancer Screening

 

Did you know that oral health is an important component to overall health?  As part of your examination, we will perform an oral cancer screening to check for signs of oral cancer. 

 

Early detection of oral cancer is essential to treating it successfully.  Oral cancer occurs when there is abnormal cell growth in your oral tissues, such as the mouth, lips, tongue or throat.  Individuals over age 45 are at a greater risk, as are tobacco users.  It is important for you to watch for signs and symptoms that include:

 

-White or red spots in your oral tissues

-Bleeding or numbness

-Lumps, texture or color changes

-Sores or patches that do not heal

-Changes in taste

 

Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions pertaining to our oral cancer screening.

Periodontal Disease

 

Periodontitis is a serious gum disease that, untreated, can not only lead to tooth loss, but also can cause bone loss in the jaw. Learn more about periodonitis and steps you can take to prevent it by scheduling your appointment today!
