Oral Hygiene Exams

45 minutes*

Regular exams are a vital part of preventative health care. Our hygienists will clean your teeth, examine your gums, and check for cavities. Our doctors will evaluate your risk of developing any oral health problems and give advice on at-home care. Daily brushing and flossing will make your hygienist and your wallet SO happy - detecting problems early allows us to care for them when they are most treatable.

 

Dental X-Rays

X-rays allow your dentist to see detailed images of your teeth, roots, and gums. Radiation from our dental x-ray machines is extremely low. Patient safety is our top priority - a weighted lead apron protects from excess exposure. During the x-ray, the patient will bite down on film holders, then *beep* all done! The photos are digital and are reviewed during your appointment.

Crowns

90 MINUTES 

You don't have to be British royalty to wear a crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap to cover a tooth.  This procedure is typically done in two appointments. At the first appointment, the tooth is prepped for the crown and you leave with a temporary. After about two weeks, the crown arrives from the dental lab! During the second appointment your crown is seated in your mouth. There are a lot of different types of crowns - your dentist will prescribe the best fit for you. Crowns are not as long lasting as implants, so make sure to floss and keep care of it!

 

Bridges

90 MINUTES 

Think dental Golden Gate - it is literally a bridge across the gap of a missing tooth. Two abutments attach to the teeth on either side of the gap, with a "fake tooth" in the middle - similar to a crown. There are a lot of options This procedure is usually split into two appointments. During the first appointment the teeth are prepped and you will go home with a temporary bridge. At the second appointment, the doctor will secure the custom made bridge in your mouth and send you home happy.

 

Implants

60 MINUTES  

Dental implants are by far the best restoration choice for replacing a tooth! They are secure investments in your future oral health. Dental implants replace decayed tooth roots under your gums. An oral surgeon will place the implant in the bone and cover it with a healing cap. The patient then waits 6-9 months for the bone to heal around the implant. Then we restore the beautiful tooth-shaped cap on top. While this treatment is expensive, the payments are spread out. Implants are also the most permanent and lasting restorative option. They can transform the caps for customizable options as well.
