Let us evaluate your periodontal health regularly. We do an initial exam, followed by maintenance (cleaning) visits. Treatment is tailored to your individual needs. Those who are periodontally healthy (without gum pocketing, bleeding, bone loss, or heavy tartar accumulation) generally receive a routine cleaning and polishing. When we discover signs of gum disease, we often recommend scaling and root planing treatments. This extensive treatment enhances your periodontal health, often eliminating the need for periodontal surgery referral.
Porcelain and composite resin fillings add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong, thanks to new bonding technologies.
A crown or "cap" is a restoration treatment that covers the whole visible surface of a tooth, making it look healthy. Crowns serve many functions, including creating and improving a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
With sealants, a tooth-colored plastic composite "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This helps seal the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start.
The purpose of a bridge is to replace one or more missing teeth, allowing them to look and function naturally. It is permanently anchored to the teeth on either side of the space created by the missing teeth.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat almost anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural, and their facial contours are preserved. The implants themselves are titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone, where teeth are missing. The bone bonds around the titanium posts, creating a strong foundation. Artificial teeth are then constructed as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
