Tooth, Cavity Filling
Even with good oral care, many people have one or more dental fillings, an issue that is often due to dietary habits. Other times, a tooth is damaged because of trauma, for example, a sporting accident that can badly chip a tooth. Placing a cavity filling restores the appearance of the tooth, replacing lost structure and ensuring the tooth has enough strength to withstand biting and chewing.

Root Canal Procedure
Root canal procedure or endodontic therapy is actually an extremely safe, relatively pain-free treatment that has helped millions of people preserve the health of their teeth across the country. Rather than causing discomfort, root canal therapy is often the most immediate and effective way of relieving excruciating tooth pain.

TMD symptoms are often confused with other problems like gum disease, tooth decay, or sinus problems. Therefore, we will need to conduct a thorough dental exam and review your dental and medical history to determine the cause of your TMJ pain as well as to provide an effective tmj treatment.
What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Why Have Preventive Dentistry?
Why Do I Need Regular Dental Checkups?
It is essential to have regular dental checkups even if your teeth seem perfectly healthy and strong. We can detect any changes to your dental health hopefully well before they cause any unpleasant symptoms like discomfort and pain.Some diseases, for example, gum disease, cause very few symptoms during the early stages, but this is the very time when the disease is most treatable and easily reversible. We can carry out other preventive screenings like oral cancer screenings. Our dentist can also tell a great deal about your overall health when examining your mouth and can detect symptoms that may indicate other medical problems.
Once we have examined your mouth, we provide you with a custom preventive dentistry plan.
What is Preventive Dentistry Plan?
Your oral care needs are unique, which is why you need a custom preventive treatment plan. The plan is based on your oral health and your general health. Some people have medical conditions that can affect their dental health considerably and may need to see us more frequently for preventive care.The plan will tell you how frequently you need regular dental checkups and also how frequently you need hygiene appointments so your teeth can be cleaned professionally. We will also provide detailed information about any other treatments that we feel could benefit you, such as treatments necessary to restore dental health.
Every plan is explained in detail, and we provide a breakdown of the costs and time involved.
