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.

Why are x-rays necessary?    Dental radiographs are among the most valuable tools a dentist has for keeping your mouth and teeth healthy.  They are a necessary part of a complete dental examination.  X-rays reveal decay that we cannot see with our eyes, bone loss from periodontal disease, abscessed teeth, cysts, tumors, and even cancers.  If any of these conditions go undetected, they will invariably get worse and more difficult to treat.  Some oral diseases can even affect systemic health.  X-rays see inside your teeth, their roots and the bone that surrounds them.  Some conditions produce no early symptoms and have no pain involved. 

Because every patient has different oral health needs and every situation is different, most patients need x-rays as often as every 6-18 months based on their individual needs.    

Radiographs are taken for the patient’s benefit so that necessary diagnosis, treatment planning, and subsequent treatment can occur.  Please be assured that our office will take every precaution necessary to minimize the amount of radiation received.  We use digital radiography that uses a sensor instead of film.  An electronic image is taken and stored in a computer.  Less radiation is needed to make an image with digital radiography than with standard dental x-rays.   The risk of radiation exposure during dental x-rays is not significantly greater than what you would receive during everyday activities in the sun or flying in an airplane. 

Implants
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.

Veneers
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

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. Read More...

Teeth Whitening
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. Read More...

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches
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. Read More...
