Dental Exam

Regular dental exams or checkups are the best way to make sure your gums and teeth stay healthy. Dental exams should be done every 6 months to allow your dentist to diagnose any problems which may be developing in the early stages and allow preventive action to be taken before the problems become more severe.
 
Even people who are diligent about brushing and flossing still need regular care from a dental professional because no matter how carefully you take care of your teeth and gums, or how carefully you look for signs of problems, there are a number of oral health conditions that only your dentist can see.
 
During the exam your dentist will look for anything unusual in your mouth, throat and neck, including the oral manifestations of diseases, oral cancer, infections, eroded fillings and dental decay. Attention to existing dental work will be given to look for deterioration in fillings, crowns and other restorations. A full set of dental X-rays will also be taken during your dental exam, to enable your dentist to see below the surfaces of your teeth and the exam will include a periodontal exam to look for signs of gum disease. Dental exams typically end with a dental cleaning, to remove surface stains and buildup.
 
Timely treatment can reduce the need for more expensive and time consuming treatments and in the case of oral cancer it can save your life. Regular checkups and cleanings every 6 months with your dentist can help to keep your teeth healthy and trouble free.

Dental X-Rays

Todays dental X-rays are safer, faster, more comfortable and more informative than the X-rays of years past. Our digital X-rays produce high-quality images of your teeth that can be viewed instantly by you and your dentist on our computer monitor.

Digital X-rays reduce radiation by up to 90% and provide exceptional diagnostic information to ensure that ential problems are caught in their earliest stages.

Our intraoral camera allows us to show you problems such as cavities, fractures and discolorations in the teeth through clear and sharp photographic images. 

White Fillings

A composite restoration is the correct technical term for white fillings or bonding as some people call them. Composite restorations are tooth-colored fillings that match the color of your teeth. Some people call them bonding because they utilize a bonding agent to get them to adhere to the teeth. The main advantages of composites are aesthetics since the composite filling material’s color can be matched to be nearly identical to that of the actual tooth and because composites bond to the tooth they give support to the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulates the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
