Good dental preventative care is really important to ensure a healthy mouth, including your gums and teeth.
It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside. To help keep your breath fresh, you should also brush your tongue. Then, you can begin flossing.
Cleanings And Exams
Having a dental practice perform a checkup and regular cleaning gives a preventive approach to dental care. These general dentistry treatments help prevent problems with your teeth and gums or they catch and manage problems before they worsen. During your visit, our doctors will evaluate the current standing of your dental health and decide what would be needed to keep your oral hygiene in its best state.
A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth. Additionally, the process actually rids the teeth of plaque and tartar that tend to lead to dental problems. Included with Invisalign Package
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth. A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your mouth will replace the removed tooth root by forming a blood clot in the area.

Invisalign® is a wonderful alternative treatment to braces. We use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation.
Since the aligners are removable, they are easier to keep clean. You can also continue to brush and floss your teeth without having to try to avoid harming your braces. It is also nice because you can eat whatever you want. Teeth Whitening is included in this package.
We use cosmetic dental procedures to ensure you are happy with your smile. We use many cosmetic procedures including whitening, veneers, implants, and much more to give you a beautiful smile.
We diagnose periodontal disease during an examination of your teeth. Using a probe, we can find trouble areas, though we may want to do x-rays too. To get rid of the disease, we will need to perform a good professional cleaning so we can remove the tartar from your teeth and underneath your gums. We may recommend an antibacterial mouthwash. There are also times when you may need an antibiotic in either a gel or pill form. There are times when surgery needs to be done to get rid of the deep pockets of infection.
The most common anesthetic we use is a local anesthetic. This blocks pain in a certain area of your mouth. For those who need more anesthetics, we offer sedatives, which are most effective if they are given before we even start, though, if needed, we can give them during the procedure. Sedatives come in many forms including pills and gas. Nitrous Oxide is our preferred gas.
