A simple and effective procedure to lighten dark or stained teeth. Teeth are whitened by professionally supervised at-home treatments or through an accelerated process in our office.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is very common and potentially life-threatening medical disorder that prevents airflow during sleep. More than 20 million Americans have sleep apnea, and many are not receiving treatment.
Chipped, stained, or worn teeth are restored with the application of a tooth-colored composite bonding resin. This may be an alternative to porcelain veneers in certain instances. We do not use dental amalgam (silver fillings),
There are three types of Crowns – full-gold, porcelain fused to gold, and all porcelain. These restorations are used to correct severe tooth decay, cracked teeth, misaligned teeth, or root canal treated teeth. Crowns are a lab-processed restoration and provide a correct and stable occlusion (bite) as well as enhanced esthetics.
Fixed-bridges are used to replace missing teeth,where there are existing adjacent teeth to support the fixed-bridge. Fixed bridges are cemented and are not removable. A better alternative to fixed-bridges is dental implants.
Dental implants are an excellent alternative to bridges, partials, and dentures. Implants replace one missing tooth or many missing teeth. The implants are surgically placed by an oral surgeon. Once the implants are placed, the surrounding bone, over time, fuses to the implant surface (osseo integration). Following osseo integration, crowns or bridges are attached to the implants. The replacement of teeth by implants is so reliable that it is considered the first choice over a fixed bridge, a removable partial, or a denture. Implants will give the patient a lifetime of service.
Pediatric (children’s) Dentistry
We do treat children and our goal is to crate a stress free environment that will continue into adolescence and adulthood. Another goal is prevention. We usually see children for their first appointment at age three unless something of concern is observed prior to that. Sealants, education, fluoride, and regular check ups, are an integral part of our prevention program.
Veneers are a minimally invasive esthetic procedure to treat discolored, misshaped, and severely worn teeth. In many cases they are an alternative to full porcelain or glass crowns.
Partials or Dentures
Partial dentures and full dentures are used to replace many missing teeth or all missing teeth. These are removable appliances and restore function and esthetics. Dental Implants are a better alternative to partial dentures or full dentures. Dental implants can be utilized in conjunction with partial dentures and full dentures to increase stability and give the patient a better sense of security.
Geriatric (elderly) Dentistry
As we get older, the oral environment goes through significant changes. In many cases medication will affect the oral environment adversely. Resistance to decay and periodontal disease may become compromised. We have a number of different modalities to combat these changes and to combat the results of these changes. Certainly education, proper and regular home care, and professional care, are of utmost importance at this time.
