Routine Care: maintaining proper oral health requires regular check-ups every six months. Your dentist and hygienist can review your home hygiene techniques and remove plaque build-up.
Fluoride: this treatment helps prevent tooth decay by strengthening the enamel of your teeth. Teeth become more resistance to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
Sealants: provide a protective coating for the chewing surface of molars to prevent plaque from getting stuck in the grooves of the tooth and causing cavities.
X-Rays: taking internal photographs of your teeth will help your dentist determine what type of treatment is best for each patient.
Fillings: used to rebuild the area of the tooth where a cavity has been removed, they can be made of composite or amalgam.
Crowns: these dental caps cover damaged teeth to restore strength and functionality as well as the tooth’s appearance. They are cemented permanently in place so they can be cared for and maintained as easily as a regular tooth.
Extractions: the removal of a tooth that cannot be saved by a filling or by root canal treatment.
Root Canal Treatment: treatment for the inside of the tooth, specifically the nerve or pulp of the tooth-this removes the inflamed or infected nerve and replaces it with a sterile material for tooth preservation.
Bridge: crosses the space left by a missing tooth or other space that helps secure the teeth on either side.
Dentures/Partials: used when a person is missing some or all of their teeth, allowing the person to eat and speak just as their original teeth.
