Routine oral exams will help keep both your teeth and gums healthy, and catch the early signs of dental disease such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, tongue lesions and other general health problems. A dental X-ray can detect new cavities, especially those that could not be uncovered during regular cleanings.
Improving oral health through maintaining good hygiene habits at home is essential. Good habits such as frequent brushing, flossing, a balanced diet and limiting sugar intake will go a long way in keeping your smile bright and healthy.
Fluoride is an essential element in keeping the enamel in your teeth healthy and able to withstand the acid environment the leads to teeth decays. To help enhance your smile, we provide fluoride treatment at our office to supplement your natural dietary intake.
Fillings will restore decayed teeth, and are made of tooth-colored porcelain or composite material. Sealants are acrylic coatings that will protect teeth from decays by acting as a protective barrier against harmful acids and plaque formation.
An extraction is the removal of a “problem” tooth. Some of the reasons to extract a tooth are when the tooth is diseased and cannot be saved, to make space for an implant, a trauma to the tooth, or because of “overcrowding” inside the mouth.
Mouth guards (or sport guards) are special teeth protective devices that are worn over the teeth (usually covering the upper teeth). They protect against broken teeth, lip lacerations, cuts, and other facial injuries mostly related to contact sports.
TMJ disorders are usually the result of joint misalignments, joint injuries, or other medical conditions. Symptoms include restricted jaw movement, clicking, popping and pain with chewing and biting.

There are multiple whitening methods available to patients, with one common goal in mind: to give you that bright sparkling smile! We always recommend having a dental exam before the whitening treatment.
Veneers are simple ceramic shells that are designed to adhere to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are mainly used to enhance the appearance of a smile by repairing large chips and cracks.
A smile design (or a smile makeover) is a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan that is based on your own individual needs. It may include multiple cosmetic treatments such as whitening, veneers, fillings, crowns and implants.
The goal of cosmetic bonding is to repair small cracks and chips in the tooth. A composite resin in applied to a chipped, cracked, discolored, or generally decayed tooth allowing the material to “bond” to the surface of the tooth.
A crown (or cap) is used to restore or replace a tooth that is significantly damaged, with a large amount of structure missing. This could be done to repair a large cavity, a broken tooth or a significantly large decay.
A dental bridge is designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth in order to restore a beautiful smile. Bridges are also indicated to restore the functions of biting, chewing, speaking, and to improve the shape of a smile.
Dental implants are replacement teeth mounted on metal posts that are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw. Implanted teeth are the most stable and the longest lasting teeth replacement available on the market. Bridges and dentures are often mounted to dental implants. We only restore implants, we do not place them.
Partial dentures are a treatment for partial teeth loss. They can be taken out and replaced inside the mouth with ease. Partial removable dentures restore smiles, enhance self-image, and decrease the risks of other health disorders.
Our office provides treatment for urgent or emergent dental conditions such as tooth pain, lost filling or crown, cracked or broken tooth, tooth swelling and abscess.
