One of the best ways to prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy smile is by seeing your dentist and dental hygienist regularly for a professional cleaning and exam. A cleaning at least once every six months can improve the appearance of your teeth, your breath, and your overall health. Our team uses ultrasonic instruments in combination with traditional instruments to remove tartar and bacteria quickly and effectively. Coming in for a regular dental exam, allows us to detect and/or address dental concerns in the early stages resulting in more conservative treatment options and avoidance of larger infections or discomfort. Our team will also provide education as to the best way patients can maintain the oral care at home.
Dental Cleanings & Exams
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair teeth. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled in with a composite filling.
You can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth with your Dentist. Composite fillings are the most widely used today.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
This is a preventive measure used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. Dental sealants are a protective varnish that is placed to protect the deep grooves and pits in your back teeth. These grooves are “hiding places” that allow bacteria to accumulate and cause tooth decay. The sealant eliminates the “hiding place.” These "hiding places" will develop cavities over time, and you don't want that.
