During a new patient exam you get full X-rays and you get a full exam by me and then I would determine what you need to get done. We also do intraoral pictures so you can actually see along... You're seeing what I'm seeing in your mouth which is kind of hard to do if you're just in the mirror and opening your mouth and trying to look at that very back tooth on the top. It's probably not going to happen so if you need a filling on this one tooth I'm going to show you the picture and tell you why. Once you see the picture it's undeniable of that, 'Yes, you need some work on that tooth.' Going from regular fillings or if you need a deeper cleaning or a regular cleaning or a couple of crowns or a couple of implants or something else. We are a little bit of a Jack of all trades here so we try to get your restorative needs definitely under control as fast as we can.
Dental Cleanings And Dental Exams
By visiting us once every six months for a dental cleaning and dental exam, we can help you prevent most dental problems and catch any dental issues while they are still easily treated.
Not only will we thoroughly clean your teeth, but we will also check for gum disease, oral cancer, signs of tooth decay, and more.
A healthy, balanced diet is essential to maintaining a healthy smile and good overall health. Our team can offer some great suggestions on what you should be eating to ensure healthy teeth and gums.
Dental sealants are a great, affordable way for people of all ages to protect themselves against tooth decay. Our sealants are simply painted on the surfaces of your teeth for added protection from decay-causing bacteria.
Fluoride Treatments And Varnishes
You may already know that fluoride in tap water and toothpaste can help keep your teeth strong and healthy. We can treat your smile with fluoride to fortify your teeth against dental problems.
If you or your child like to stay active, we offer athletic mouthguards that are custom designed to fit your mouth and protect you against injury. You may just avoid a dental emergency!
We can also offer custom mouthguards designed to adjust the position of your jaw to alleviate teeth grinding, teeth clenching, and other issues with your TMJ, or jaw joints.
