Cleaning and Prevention
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. We recommend regular cleanings and dental examinations for all of our patients Depending on the health of your gums and bones surrounding your teeth, we will discuss what type of cleaning is necessary and the recommended frequency of the cleanings
Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers
Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease. When many teeth are missing, dentures could be the best option to replace these missing teeth.

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities.
Among the causes for periodontal (bone and gum) disease are genetic susceptibility, smoking, infrequent dental visits, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal maintenance involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline.
A "toothache", spontaneous tooth pain awakening you from sleep or swelling around a tooth that has died could mean that you need a root canal. Root canals have a misconception that that they are a painful procedure. Having a root canal done on a tooth that is painful will often lead to relief and allow you to save your tooth instead of having it extracted.
