Preventative & Restorative

Our goal is to improve the health of your teeth for the long term. The doctor works hand in hand with you to provide you a personalized treatment:

    • By listening to your concerns, performing a careful examination and discussing any recommended treatments.
    • By providing treatments such as Fillings and Root Canals which work to decrease the immediate pain and discomfort.
    • By going over your dental health and how to improve it.

We encourage you to ask questions and want you to have a good understanding of your dental needs without feeling rushed.


Dental X-rays

Dental x-rays allow the doctor to get a better view of the health of your teeth. Dental x-rays reveal potential conditions such as abscess or cyst, loss of bone and tooth decay.
 

Dental Exams and Cleanings

Dental prophylaxis is a treatment performed to clean teeth and gums. Adult prophylaxis is an important step in stopping the progress of gingivitis and periodontal dental diseases.
 

Tooth Fillings

A tooth filling is used to repair a tooth that is weakened by decay, cracks and fractures. There are many types of fillings available. The most popular are composite fillings and silver amalgam fillings. One of the advantages of composite fillings is that they can be matched to the color of your existing teeth.
 

Root Canal Therapy

If your teeth are feeling sensitive to hot and cold, or you have severe tooth pain or abscess, then your tooth might be weakened by decay or infection. To save the tooth, the decay and infected pulp containing bacteria and nerves are removed. Then medication and dental materials are used to restore the tooth.
 

Simple & Surgical Extraction

If you have severe tooth pain then gum disease or tooth decay may have severely weakened the tooth. The tooth is then extracted to prevent infection and reduce further damage.
 

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

When the jawline does not have adequate space for your third molars (otherwise known as wisdom teeth), then the tooth is extracted to prevent damage such as infection and crowding to nearby teeth.
