Whether you had a filling done, a smile makeover, implants or just looking to have a healthy mouth we will keep your smile healthy for life by providing you with the best dental teeth cleaning.
Night guards: Night guards are usually worn to prevent teeth grinding that can wear down tooth surfaces, increasing the risk for decay, gum disease and even tooth loss, grinding, or bruxism, can also cause temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), a condition that can cause chronic jaw pain and headaches as well as a “clicking” noise when you chew or yawn.
Sleep apnea treatment: A sleep apnea mouth guard is an oral sleep appliance thаt kеерs thе аіrwау ореn durіng slеер. A patient can get one in a dental office. Sleep apnea mouthpiece is a small oral appliance meant to manage mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is easy to wear, very easy for travel. sleep apnea mouth guards by far are the most popular option amongst sleep apnea patients.
Missing teeth restorations: Both dental implant crown and implant bridge are implant-supported restorations. They are used to replace missing teeth or teeth needing extractions. Dental implant and implant crown are used to replace a single missing tooth. A span of several teeth (3 to 12) can be replaced with an implant supported bridge. The number of implants required to support such implant bridge will depend on the number of missing teeth and the length of the implant supported bridge. If there are no teeth a full mouth reconstruction can be easily achieved with dental implant bridges or implant supported dentures to chew comfortable and confidently.
Teeth Whitening: Professional tooth whitening is the most commonly performed cosmetic dentistry procedure in the country, and for very good reasons: it is much more effective, safer, more comfortable, and less aggravating than whitening with a store-bought kit. It will allow your teeth to get naturally whiter without having any effect on your enamel. Contrary to popular belief, whitening is extremely safe and does not work by weakening or stripping away enamel.
Straighten your teeth: Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without metal brackets and braces (wires) like done many years ago. These days many times we can fully straighten teeth using invisible trays that exert gentle pressure on teeth to shift them into the position that want. This same pressure is placed on the teeth with traditional braces, but now it is invisible, comfortable and can be removed for events and parties and not worn for a night here and there. following malocclusion problems can be addressed with Invisalign: overbite, crowding, gaps and spaces, crossbite, open bite.
Repairing cavities: White (composite) fillings composite resins, a blend of plastics and small glass particles, aren't just good for repairing cavities; they can also be used to change the color or shape of a tooth. The procedure is simple and consists of just one appointment. Your dentist will first choose the shade of composite that best matches your tooth color. After removing the decay, he or she will use a special curing light to harden each layer of filling material. The filling will be shaped to fit your tooth and polished so that it remains smooth and resistant to staining.
Dental bonding: Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth. Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Dental crown: A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged or broken down tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. a crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Dental bridge: Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing, and replace those teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. as with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Dental Inlay & Onlay: Dental Inlays and Onlays can be thought of as porcelain/ceramic fillings. These are different than white/composite fillings in that the ceramic material used to restore your tooth is much stronger than white filling material and sometimes necessary for longevity. You can imagine these to be porcelain little puzzle pieces that fit into (or replace) the missing or decayed part of your tooth. These two dental procedures are very similar. They restore decayed or worn out teeth. They made out of the same material, porcelain or ceramic. They have the same durability. The difference between the two is how they fit into the tooth and the amount of tooth structure they may replace. They both are cemented inside the tooth. Onlay, unlike inlay, covers one or several cusps (the raised part of the tooth) and extends to the occlusal surface. Dental onlay vs. crown both onlays and crowns are used to treat extensive areas of decay, but crowns are designed to surround the entire tooth while onlays covers only the compromised portion. in the past, there were only two ways to restore decay either a metal filling or a crown. now with advancements in cosmetic dentistry, ceramic onlays can restore the teeth that in the past would have required crowns. By placing onlays instead of crowns dentists are now able to save the tooth without removing so much of the tooth structure. Crowns are still recommended to strengthen teeth after a root canal therapy and to restore broken teeth.
Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of tooth-colored porcelain materials that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. they’re used on the front teeth – the ones that are visible when smiling – (the critical cosmetic zone) to correct issues like cracks, chips, uneven edges, stains, discolorations, gaps between teeth, teeth that appear “too small” in relation to other teeth (sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile”), rotated and malposed teeth.
Root canal therapy: A root canal is necessary to treat a tooth that has decayed so severely that its nerve is affected, either being painful or nonliving. the tooth becomes infected, or abscessed, when the decay goes beyond the enamel and progresses to the dentin, or the layer underneath the enamel. Finally, decay reaches the nerve structure of the tooth, which is called pulp. At this point, the inflammation that has been caused by the decay in the tooth is irreversible. The nerve structure of the tooth begins to die. as this happens, chemicals are released that can cause an infection at the tip of the root, leading to pain and swelling. This is typically the point at which the toothache becomes noticeable and painful. The patient will usually seek a dentist who can help relieve the pain and treat the tooth with root canal therapy. Because a root canal procedure is complex and must be performed properly, patients should take care to choose a provider who has experience and expertise in root canals.
Dental emergency: Some common types of mouth injuries include cracked, broken, or knocked out teeth, which can be a result of biting on a piece of food that is too hard, a sports-related injury, a fall, or any other type of accident. Another very common emergency situation is tooth or dental pain, especially pain to cold water or cold foods. Sometimes even pain to hot water is an emergency as well and can be indicative of a tooth's nerve having a problem and needing treatment. Another emergency is if a crown or cap falls out and needs to be recemented. Depending on the severity of the injury and where the tooth is located, it is possible that a chipped tooth or minor fracture can wait for a call to the dentist during normal business hours.
