Our sedation dental office offers a full array of family dental services to help you and your family maintain healthy gums and teeth for life. You can read more on this page about specific services.
Initial Dental Examination
Your initial dental examination includes a visual examination, periodontal (gum) exam, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. We will also take dental digital x-rays, which include the panoramic x-ray for a proper diagnosis as well as the check-up x-ray series for proper diagnosis of dental cavities.
Dental implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Dental implants are anchored to the jawbone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, or crooked.
Porcelain Crowns (Caps)
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward until they reach the tip of the root.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of dental emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time to designing long-term dental treatment plans that will help you offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage.
Heat, vibration, and pressure are the primary causes of dental pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both teeth and gum tissues with the Waterlase® does not generate heat, vibration, or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill, and fewer numb lips! Additionally, using Waterlase® for gum procedures may reduce bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling, and the need for pain medication in many cases.
