In addition to daily brushing and flossing, you can help protect your oral health by seeing your dentist regularly for check-ups. It’s recommended that most people get a dental check-up every six months, but your dentist may recommend more frequent or fewer visits, depending on your dental health history. In most cases, a dental hygienist and dentist will perform your dental check-up. Not every dentist operates the same way, but a dental check-up typically involves:

  • Cleaning and polishing your teeth

  • Education on dental hygiene issues

  • Teeth, gums, and mouth will be examined

  • X-Rays may be taken to look at dental problems

Having a bright white smile is another important aspect to proper cleaning. Many people use whitening toothpaste; but this is a limited approach to teeth whitening. For many patients, time has aged teeth and produced a dullness that negatively impacts the smile. In this case, which applies to the majority of individuals seeking a whiter smile, the best teeth whitening methods are those which are more powerful. Some of the available teeth whitening methods are:

  • Over-the-counter whitening strips

Root canal is the term which describes the natural cavity within the center of the tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. In the root canal is where a tooth's nerve is. The nerve is not vitally important to the health of the tooth; it is only present to provide the sensation of hot or cold. Therefore, when root canal therapy is called for, there is very little downside to the procedure. Most patients do experience some sort of symptom that will alert them to the problem. Such symptoms may include:

  • Severe pain in a tooth when chewing

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures

  • Swollen or tender gums

  • Recurring or persistent pimple on the gums

  • Darkening of the tooth

Individuals who have lost several or most of their teeth may be good candidates for dentures. These dental devices are used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. As needs for dentures are varied, there are two types normally used – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are being replaced and can be for upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are still present.

  • For patients with multiple missing teeth

  • Improved appearance and self-confidence

Tooth decay can advance rapidly and you want to have cavities filled quickly. As a treatment for cavities, composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

  • Limits damage caused by trauma and dental cavities

  • Reestablishes adequate function of the tooth

  • Helps prevent tooth loss

  • Makes it easier to clean your teeth

  • Lowers the bacterial count in your mouth

  • Helps you achieve and maintain fresh breath


Our general dentists are motivated to save their patients teeth above all else. When a patient presents with tooth damage, the first thing a dentist will attempt to do is restore the structure and health to the tooth or teeth through treatments such as filling, inlays, or crowns. Unfortunately, these types of restorative procedures are not always possible. Sometimes, a tooth is damaged beyond repair and the only treatment option is to remove the unhealthy tooth.

  • Simple extractions

  • Surgical extractions

  • Wisdom tooth removal

  • Severely broken or fractured teeth

  • Decayed teeth


A dental bridge will hold your other teeth in place and make everyday activities such as eating and talking easier. It can also help preserve your teeth as a lost tooth can cause the remaining teeth to loosen, which may lead to additional tooth loss. A bridge is a replacement tooth or teeth that fill the space where one or more teeth are missing. Before you get a bridge, your dentist wants you to know more about the steps involved. He or she can advise which type of bridge is best for you.

  • The bridge restores your bite

  • Helps keep the natural shape of your face

  • Teeth are made to work together

  • Less stress on your teeth and jaw joints
