Oral health is an important part of general body health. The American Dental Association advises people to visit the dentist at least two times annually. There are many procedures that dentists perform when examining and treating dental conditions.
This is a list of services we offer. Feel free to ask us any questions about our services you might have and we will be happy to answer them.
A consultation is a meeting with one of our dentists during which a patient describes their dental problem and their dentist suggests various treatment options. Soon after consultation, the dentist schedules the patient for a diagnostic, a procedure aimed at determining the nature of their dental problem.
A diagnostic involves a comprehensive exam. During this exam, we may conduct oral cancer screening, x-rays, periodontal screening, a test of jaw issues and bite problems, or tooth-specific exams. These tests help the dentist identify the seriousness of a patient’s dental condition, and determine the best remedy.
Preventive Care refers to adopting certain practices to keep one’s teeth healthy. The aim of preventive dentistry is to avoid gum disease, enamel wear, cavities, and other preventable dental conditions. The main forms of this type of dentistry include dental cleanings, flossing, and daily brushing.

An extraction is the removal of one’s tooth because of crowding, trauma, or a disease. We provide extractions in the least painful ways possible for our patients.
A crown is a cover or cap placed on one’s tooth to retrieve its normal appearance. They are used for broken or cracked teeth. A crown holds together a broken tooth by sealing the crack to avoid further damage.
On the other hand, a dental bridge refers to a false tooth placed between two crowns to fill a space that has no tooth. The crowns are attached to one’s teeth on either side of the bridge.
Dentures are removable teeth. Dentures are mainly formed using acrylic resin. Full dentures are used for replacing all the teeth while partial dentures are used to fill spaces arising from missing teeth.
Tooth colored fillings are made from a composite of glass and plastic. They are used for restoring decayed teeth, changing the color of one’s teeth, or changing the shape of disfigured teeth.
Non-surgical treatment is the use of least invasive techniques to treat periodontal (gum) disease. The main non-surgical treatment procedures are scaling and root planning. These procedures involve the cleaning of the tooth’s root surface to get rid of calculus and plaque.
Nitrous oxide is an effective and safe sedative that is combined with oxygen and inhaled from a small mask that is fitted over the patient’s nose. It is also known as laughing gas and is mainly used to make patients feel comfortable and relaxed during dental procedures.
