Initial Oral Examination

Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, x-rays, periodontal probing (evaluation for gum disease), charting of existing dental work and diagnosis and treatment recommendations for areas of concern. Your x-rays will be taken using a low radiation digital system and will be beneficial in evaluating areas for decayed/abscessed teeth, gum disease, oral cancer and developmental concerns. In some cases where further discussion is required, a follow-up visit may be scheduled to allow you more time with the doctor.

 

High-Quality Screening X-rays 
We provide low radiation, non-invasive panoramic x-rays. All other x-rays are taken with low radiation, digital technology.

Intraoral Camera
Our office provides visual tours of patients' mouth. 

 
 
CAD-CAM

Using the latest technology and 3-D scanning; crowns, bridges, and porcelain onlays can be made while you wait. Our office provides the opportunity for single crowns to be made and cemented in our office in just one visit! This procedure is performed by scans taken of your mouth with the latest CAD- CAM Technology. The Scanner we use communicates to our Mill, which will create your crown before your eyes. Once your crown has been milled, it is placed in a furnace that glazes and finalizes your custom fit crown. Once this process is complete, we cement your crown and guess what that means? No more temporaries! However, in some instances, when a tooth is symptomatic, a temporary crown may be placed to monitor symptoms in which case we have the ability to mill a temporary crown in our office as well.

Crowns
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. 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. Read More...

Implants
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers
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. Read More...

Teeth Whitening
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. Read More...

Toothaches
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. Read More...

Dental Emergencies
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage. Read More...

Our staff is committed to your comfort and will make every effort to provide immediate service. (Please call immediately if you have lost or broken a tooth or are experiencing any pain or swelling 616-866-4445.)
