Happy visit and healthy smiles is our motto here at our office! Our first priority is our patients overall dental health. Our professional staff will strive to provide you with the best and most efficient treatment possible. Early detection and intervention are primary aspects in preserving your dental needs and will aid in your confidence for a healthy and happy smile.
The foundation of proper and preventative dental care is routine cleaning and maintenance. Our staff will customize cleanings and devise a treatment plan according to your specific periodontal health. We utilize remedial gels along and prescription mouth washes in problem areas if necessary. Ultrasonic scalers are often used to make the procedure more comfortable and efficient as well. We also have hi-tech polishing brighteners to remove extrinsic stains and dental plaque while simultaneously polishing tooth surfaces. Regular dental check-ups and x-rays will aid in our ability to help you stay healthy!
We emphasize that all patients receive oral cancer screenings, as we believe early detection is critical. The Velscope screening system is a non-invasive oral cancer-screening device that aids in detecting abnormalities not visible to the naked eye. Early stage diagnosis can help save a patient’s life.
Patients at high risk of dental decay may benefit highly from using additional fluoride products, such as dietary supplements, mouth rinses, and professionally applied gels and varnishes.
A dental sealant is a plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of molars (back teeth). Sealants can provide 100% protection from dental decay or “cavities” on the chewing surface and preserves a healthy tooth structure. Sealant applications can last up to 5 to 10 years, but we recommend that they should be checked regularly and if needed can be reapplied.
During periodontal intervention, our staff will utilize antibiotic therapy and will refrain from a surgical solution unless absolutely necessary. Placing localized antibiotics will target the specific site of infection and prevent periodontal disease from progressing.
