Here are some of the services we offer here at our dental practice.
When you have to have a filling completed, look no further than our dental office! Fillings are usually done to remove tooth decay and replace the tooth structure to give the tooth a fighting chance of staying in your mouth. The material that is used fills the hole in your tooth from the damage of the decay. If the hole is caught early enough, the cavity can be treated very easily. This is definitely the route to go because if the filling is not completed, the tooth can get infected, which could possibly lead to having to have a root canal procedure or even extraction.
When you need to have your teeth bonded, you will need to have composite resin material bonded to your tooth for cosmetic purposes. Usually this is done to fix a tooth that has suffered decay, to fix tooth alignment, or to close a gap between teeth. This process is fairly simple and painless and usually does not take long to complete. First the tooth is roughened so the bonding material will hold. A special gel is then placed on the tooth’s surface along with a primer or bonding agent. Next, the resin is placed on the tooth and hardens with intense light treatment. Lastly, the resin is shaped and contoured to match the rest of your teeth cosmetically.
Non-Surgical Gum Treatments
Your gums are the foundation for your teeth and how they are going to develop. Signs of gum disease can definitely place your teeth and gums in jeopardy quickly. If you experience red, inflamed gums, any bleeding from your gum line, or persistent bad breath, those are all signs of gum disease. Gum disease treatment can be completed quickly and easily at our office. The treatment involves a deep cleaning of your gum line and root planing if necessary, which is completed under anesthetic that’s given locally and added antibiotic agents.
