Dental Cleaning

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dental hygienist or dentist. Most dental cleanings take about an hour and should be performed at least every six months to prevent excessive plaque build-up. In some individuals, more frequent cleanings may be indicated. Untreated plaque can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. The overall health of our bodies is directly related to our oral health.

Implant Restoration

A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, or any other reason. A dental implant is a titanium root-form post that a periodontist or oral surgeon surgically positions into the jaw. While implants can be slightly more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants can be as strong as natural teeth and last 10 – 20 years or more.

Fillings

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, the dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. A filling also helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.

Sealants

Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. In some cases, the tooth structure has fine grooves or pits which accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn’t brush, but because they’re too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. These will develop cavities over time, and you don’t want that. Your hygienist or dentist will brush on a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy.

Veneers

Veneers are a dental procedure in which the teeth may be given a temporary covering depending on the situation. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect. The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, including partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change in your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile!
