It is our goal to keep your mouth healthy, your teeth fully functional, and your smile bright – and we are proud of all the services we offer to do exactly that. At the same time, we want you to understand all that modern dentistry in general has to offer you. To that end, we have assembled a first-rate dental library in which you can find a wealth of information on various dental topics, including:
Cosmetic & General Dentistry
From a thorough professional cleaning to a full smile makeover, there is an amazing array of services that cosmetic and general dentists offer to make sure your teeth stay healthy, function well and look great. If your smile is not all you want it to be, this is the place to start.
Emergency Dental Care
When you have a dental emergency – whether it’s caused by a sudden accident or chronic disease – your teeth and/or the tissues of the mouth that surround them need to receive proper care right away. It’s also important to be aware, before you’re actually in the situation, of what you can do to ensure the best outcome.
This is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the inside of the tooth – specifically the root canals and sensitive, inner pulp (nerve) tissue. When this tissue becomes inflamed or infected, a root canal procedure may become necessary. Contrary to the popular myth, a root canal doesn’t cause pain, it relives it.
Oral health is an essential component of general health and well-being. Good oral health means a mouth that’s free of disease; a bite that functions well enough for you to eat without pain and get ample nutrition; and a smile that lets you express your happiest emotions with confidence.
A major goal of modern dentistry is to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. By following a conscientious program of oral hygiene at home, and coming to the dental office for routine cleanings and exams, you have the best chance of making this goal a reality.
The word “surgery” often brings to mind a stay in the hospital, general anesthesia, and perhaps a lengthy recovery period. However, the experience of having oral surgery is usually very different from that. Some common oral surgery procedures include: tooth extractions, dental implant placement, and biopsies of suspicious oral lesions.
Adults and kids alike can benefit from the boost in self-confidence that comes from having a great-looking smile with beautifully aligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment can even improve chewing, speaking and oral hygiene in certain cases. And with today’s virtually invisible orthodontic appliances, it’s possible to keep your treatment a private matter… until your new smile is unveiled, of course!
If you want to keep your teeth for life – a completely reasonable goal in this day and age – you need to make sure the tissues that surround them are also healthy. Should gum problems arise, you may need periodontal therapy to restore diseased tissues to health.
In the field of dentistry, new technology is constantly changing the way diseases are diagnosed, routine procedures are performed, and illnesses are prevented. Although they may seem unfamiliar at first, new and improved dental technologies offer plenty of real benefits for patients.
