Here Are The General Dental Services We Offer:
Tooth Cleaning and Oral Exams
Routine dental exams are an integral part of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. Even if your last visit was cavity-free, it is important not to get into the habit of skipping an appointment. Remember, oral problems can develop quickly and may lead to other health problems if left untreated, even just for a short period of time. Oral exams are recommended every six months, but the frequency of exams may vary depending on your personalized treatment plan.
Other than brushing and flossing your teeth every day, it is essential that you get your teeth cleaned every six months to prevent cavities and gum disease. After a routine dental exam, we may provide you with a teeth cleaning procedure, as well.
Dental Fillings & Sealants
We provide dental fillings to restore your damaged tooth structure due to tooth decay. As opposed to using amalgam or silver fillings, we use white composite fillings to make sure the restored tooth looks and feels natural.
In addition, we provide a dental sealant or a thin, plastic coating that acts as a protective shield over the tooth enamel. It quickly bonds into the depressions of the teeth, preventing tooth decay.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal procedure involves extracting decayed pulp from the central part of the tooth, cleaning or reshaping the canal, and sealing it for protection. We recommend this procedure to stop the infection from spreading throughout the tooth, gum, and jaw bone. Depending on the severity of your case, it may take one to three visits to our clinic before we can complete the entire procedure.
