Initial Oral Examination Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Regular Dental Maintenance Using the PSR method (periodontal screening and recording), we monitor your periodontal health at every hygiene visit as required. If indicated, a more in-depth evaluation takes place. If further indicated, I will refer you to the periodontist in our neighborhood.

Radiographs (x-rays) are invaluable to you in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection, root involvement, tartar and decay. Radiographs are also beneficial in determining if the disease is progressing or arrested. In its simplest terms, treatment consists of gently removing the accumulation of plaque and tartar or calculus from above and below the gum line. This is known as debridement. How we do this depends on the stage of the disease and where the calculus exists.

Dental Implants We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance.

Teeth Bleaching We will make you a personal custom tray that will stay with you and you can use it over and over with very minimal expense to purchase the refill material and have your whitening touched up at the convince of your own home.

Crowns and Veneers You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal.

Fillings: Resin Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.
Root Canals We refer to endodontist for your root canals needs except if is an anterior or some premolar teeth.
Periodontal Treatment You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Mouth Guards Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
