Invisalign

Invisalign is a clear alternative to metal braces. Using a series of clear, removable "aligner trays", Invisalign gradually moves your teeth.

Invisalign is virtually invisible, so it is a perfect solution for those who don't want others to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Treatment times average approximately 1 year and you usually visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Ask your doctor for a free Invisalign consultation today!

Tooth-colored fillings

Composite fillings are tooth-colored fillings made from a type of resin. These fillings are bonded in place using a special light and they help to conserve your tooth structure. They look great compared to traditional silver fillings!

Crowns

Crowns are permanent restorations that cover the entire tooth for maximum protection. They are recommended when a tooth needs to be strengthened, such as when you have a large cavity or defective filling, a cracked tooth or after a root canal.

They are made in a variety of different materials that can be grouped into two categories: 1) ceramic and 2 ) metal.

Both types have advantages and disadvantages. Your doctor will determine which type will be best for you.

Implant treatment

Implants are often the best treatment option for missing teeth. An implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed where a tooth was previously extracted. The implant must then be allowed to heal for approximately 3 - 4 months

At this point, the implant can then be converted to a whole tooth. This is accomplished by screwing something called an abutment onto the top of the implant sitting in your jaw.

Finally, a crown is cemented on top of your implant abutment creating a complete tooth.

Occlusal appliances for Bruxism

Bruxism or teeth grinding can be described as an excessive grinding of teeth resulting in damage/wear to your teeth. It is not a normal function and it can be associated with joint discomfort, jaw or neck muscle pain/tightness, hypersensitive teeth and headaches.

The exact cause of teeth grinding is unclear but we do know that the condition can be brought on by stress. Your dentist will be able to diagnose your bruxism and may recommend a device you wear while you sleep called an occlusal guard or night guard.

Root canal therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment used to save teeth that have been damaged by extensive cavities or trauma. Healthy teeth are alive and have an intact nerve and blood supply. Extensive damage to a tooth may result in a compromised nerve and blood supply often resulting in significant discomfort.

Symptoms may include moderate to severe hot, cold or biting sensitivity. After the damaged components are removed from within the tooth, a special substance is placed and the tooth is sealed.

A crown is often required after a root canal procedure is completed. Root canal therapy is often a painless procedure and your dentist will use diagnostic tests to see if it is needed.

Periodontal therapy

Periodontal Disease is caused by a bacterial infection which if left untreated can result in loss of one or more teeth. Bacteria live in the biofilm on your teeth. Most of us know this as plaque. When plaque is not removed by brushing and flossing the plaque hardens to form tartar.

Symptoms include: Red and puffy gums, gums that bleed easily, mouth odor, loosening of one or more teeth, receding gums and gum discomfort. There are various stages of periodontal disease and only your dentist can diagnose this disease process using x-rays and a measuring instrument.

Scaling and root planing is the treatment of choice when the disease process is manageable. This treatment removes plaque and tartar above and below the gums and is done with local anesthetic. However, if you have advanced periodontal disease your dentist may refer you to a specialist called a Periodontist.
