Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a review of medical and dental history and your special needs or interests. Once completed we will then perform avisual examination, charting, periodontal probing, and tooth shading. After we have collected this data we will then deliver a diagnosis and any recommendations for treatment. We will also take x-rays for which we use the most current all digital equipment at the lowest possible radiation dose including CBCT (Computerized Cone Beam Tomogrphaphy) which uses one quarter the dosage of traditional x rays to deliver superb diagnostic information in a conventional panoramic or 3-D rendered image. Depending on your needs these image options can be used for tooth impactions, implant location, sleep apnea, sinus problems, and pathologies not readily seen using conventional x-rays with the option of review by an oral radiologist. Traditional X-rays include a panoramic(performed using the CBCT scanner), and bitewing x-rays which are used to diagnose decay between teeth and detection of bone loss from periodontal disease. Additionally we will take photos and images of your teeth for available display when speaking to your oral condition which can be viewed from the comfort of your chair.
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.
Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth`s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit.
Crowns and Bridges
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 following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. 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.
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.
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.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage.
