In between regular visits to the dentist, there are simple steps that each of us can take to greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems.
Bone defects may create a situation where bone needs to be augmented (replaced by means of grafting) for implant placement to be accomplished.
Implants can be more readily maintained in good health if there is an adequate amount of gingiva (gum tissue) in the area where the implant emerges through the gum.
Enhancing your body’s natural ability to heal or restore your gums and the underlying bone that has been lost as a result of periodontal disease.
Routine dental check-ups along with proper brushing are essential for maintaining healthy gums; however some patients may require treatment.
A recently developed surgical procedure in which a gummy smile can be surgically corrected when the condition has been found to be the result of a high or hyperactive upper lip.
It is important to have gum problems checked promptly, as gum disease left alone may eventually need treatment through surgery or extraction.
Implant dentistry is a unique approach to replacing lost teeth and because dental implants are unlike other prosthetics, they provide numerous advantages to improving one’s oral function and quality of life.
Every patient’s jaw is unique, so every surgery should be unique too. That’s why we use leading-edge technology to create a 3-D view of the patient’s jaw and its vital structures to help them plan in advance.
For our patients who are seeking a high quality tooth replacement choice, we are pleased to offer a full-ceramic dental implant as an alternative to the conventional dental implant.
If there has been destruction to parts of the bony walls of the socket when a tooth is extracted, a socket preservation may be required so that an implant can be placed.
Sinus grafting allows the ability to surgically lift up the floor of the sinus cavity and place bone graft materials that will stimulate adequate growth of bone for implants to be placed.
An alternative approach to increasing the height of bone under your sinuses. In this procedure, a small amount of bone is left under the sinus cavity floor in the site of an implant placement.
This procedure enables your dentist to increase the width of available bone to an appropriate size to accept implants – thereby replacing your missing teeth.
Dental implants range from $1,500 and up depending on if you need single or multiple implants. We’ll work with you and your insurance, as well as our in-house financing options, to make sure you get the treatment that you need.
There are abundant reasons to choose advanced prosthetics for replacement teeth over conventional dentures. Patients can now enjoy lifelike replacement teeth for ideal oral function.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, including partial and complete dentures.
Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged or to take the place of missing teeth. They are very durable and can last a lifetime with extra care and good oral hygiene.
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth, and are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
Custom designed mouthguards and nightguards are made of flexible plastic and molded to fit the shape of your teeth. On average, guards last between 3 and 10 years.
Our full-service dental practice provides services like cleanings and checkups, preventive care, and oral health education.
Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay.
We are experienced at improving the appearances of many smiles with effective cosmetic treatments such as professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and white restorations.
Laser dentistry is the latest advancement in dental technology, treating a wide range of dental and cosmetic problems from cavities to gum disease to teeth whitening.
3D x-rays yield a wealth of information that is used to precisely plan for treatment before any procedures begin.
