Professional dental cleanings and regular exams are essential to maintaining oral health. This includes removing plaque and tartar, as well as early identification of cavities and other dental problems.
When cavities are detected, one of the most common treatments is dental filling. This involves removing damaged tooth tissue and filling the area with a filling material, such as composite resin or amalgam.
Endodontic treatments, commonly known as root canals, are necessary when the dental pulp becomes infected or inflamed. Treatment involves removing damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal, and then filling and sealing the space.
Orthodontics focuses on correcting the alignment of the teeth and jaw. This may include wearing braces, retainers, or invisible aligners to correct problems such as crowding, crossbites, and other alignment problems.
Periodontics treats diseases of the gums and dental supporting tissue. Treatments may include deep cleanings (scaling and root planing) to treat gingivitis or periodontitis, as well as gum surgery in severe cases.
Prosthetic procedures include the fabrication and installation of crowns, bridges, dentures and other devices that help replace missing or damaged teeth, restoring dental function and aesthetics.
