Cleaning and Prevention
At your cleaning appointment, your dental hygienist will assess the health of your gums, the bone supporting your teeth, and other oral tissues, as well as remove the tartar and plaque from your teeth and any exposed root surfaces.
During your filling appointment, the dentist will remove the decay in your tooth, as well as any compromised tooth structure. Then, filling material will be placed in the tooth, sometimes with a medicated layer at its base, depending on the depth of the decay.
A crown is a restoration that completely covers the whole tooth. Crowns are frequently used on broken teeth, or teeth with very large fillings or when the shape of a tooth needs to be altered.
Bridges are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that function and look like your own natural, healthy teeth. We use bridges is to replace missing teeth that have intact teeth on each side of the space.
There can be a number of reasons why teeth need to be removed.Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.
