Our approach to dentistry is one of prevention. Our goal is to detect potential problems before they show symptoms. We know preventing dental disease is easier and less costly for our patients than repairing the damage.
Crowns and Bridges
Both crowns and most bridges are what are termed fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike devices such as dentures, that must be removed and cleaned daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.
Root canals are a possible treatment option for teeth with severe heat, cold, or bite sensativity. It incolves cleaning and shaping the root canal system then sealing it to prevent future infection.
Associates of Dentistry can restore your smile, allowing you to live life to the fullest. Never miss a homecooked meal or family picture day with a set of personalized dentures fit for your mouth.
Dental implants offer you a simple solution for tooth loss problems, aside from improving your self image. Dental implants facilitate chewing, reduce movement and friction among false and natural teeth, as well as provide support for bridge work.
