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.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Periodontal Disease
Periodontal bacteria have been infecting your foundation. Your gums are an important foundation for your teeth and provide stability for all of your dental work-so it's important to keep them healthy. However, your dental professional identified a chronic bacterial infection in your gums known as periodontal disease (gum disease).

Important facts about periodontal disease

  • Periodontal disease is the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States
  • This silent infection occurs when harmful bacteria travel beneath the gum line and create "pockets"-spaces or gaps in the gums around the teeth
  • If left untreated, periodontal bacteria can lead to bone and tooth loss that threatens your foundation
  • Infected periodontal pockets are usually 4 or more millimeters (mm) in depth

The role of your dental healthcare team
The good news is that there are effective treatments available for periodontal disease. Your dental healthcare team-which typically includes your dentist, your hygienist, and sometimes your periodontist-chooses the most effective method of treatment for your infection and is dedicated to helping you fight periodontal disease.

The treatment your dental healthcare team selects is designed to:

  • Reduce the bacteria causing your infection
  • Shrink the size of your periodontal pockets
  • Manage your infection to stop it from spreading or becoming more severe

That's why a dental healthcare team often decides to add a locally administered antibiotic (LAA) such as ARESTIN®.

Adding ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg
ARESTIN® is a small amount of antibiotic powder that is easily applied by a dental professional.

  • Clinical studies show that ARESTIN® + SRP is more effective at shrinking the size of infected periodontal pockets than SRP alone
  • ARESTIN® remains in the pocket for up to 21 days -to help ensure continued treatment
  • ARESTIN® is safe and easy for your dental professional to administer

Ask your dental professional to use this chart to highlight the areas of infection inside your gums.

Invisalign
You are worthy of an extraordinary smile, but that doesn't mean you have to go through brackets and wires for years. Invisalign® is an ingenious new system designed to straighten teeth discreetly, with inconspicuous aligners rather than metal braces. The Invisalign® system uses clear, custom made aligners to gradually move teeth into proper alignment. Patients progress to a new aligner every few weeks. The aligners are clear and thin and also removable, making eating, drinking, and brushing much simpler. When complete you are left with a spectacular and flawless smile! Let us show you how easily we can accomplish this!

     

     
 


Crowns
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.

Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Root Canals
Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success. It involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection, and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth; before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

Tooth Colored Cosmetic Fillings
We place only the highest quality tooth-colored composite or porcelain fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, our restorations are mercury-free, contain no toxic metal or material, and are placed with the most tooth conserving techniques. They are strong and durable and provide resistance against future fractures. The tooth colored material makes the procedure indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Sealants
The pits and grooves of your teeth are prime areas for opportunistic decay. Even regular brushing sometimes misses some of these intricate structures on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.

Enter sealants, which are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces designed to prevent the intrusion of bacteria and other debris into the deep crevices on the tops of your teeth.

Sealants actually were developed about 50 years ago, but didn't become commonly used until the 1970s. Today, sealants are becoming widely popular and effective; young children are great candidates for preventative measures like sealants because in many cases, decay has not set in. Even on teeth where decay is present, sealants have been shown to fight additional damage.

Sealants are applied by first cleaning the tooth surface. The procedure is followed by "etching" the tooth with an abrasive substance, which allows the sealant to better adhere. After the sealant is applied, a warm light source is directed to the site to promote faster drying. Sealants usually need re-application every five to 10 years.

Bad Breath (halitosis)

Bad breath is a common affliction with many people. When it advances or doesn't go away, it becomes known as chronic halitosis.

Bad breath is caused by decaying particles of food and bacteria that pass into your bloodstream and to the lungs, where odor is emitted from breathing.

While people spend lots of money on products that treat the symptoms of bad breath, they often neglect to take steps to address the root causes of bad breath-such as bacteria, and decaying food particles remaining in spaces between the teeth, on the gums and on the tongue. In many cases, good daily oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing and rinsing, can keep bad breath in check. This also applies to denture-wearers.

Other conditions, such as gum disease, can cause persistent bad breath. Under normal conditions, your saliva acts to cleanse your mouth of the particles that can decay and later cause bad breath. People with a condition known as dry mouth, in which saliva production is diminished, can sometimes suffer from bad breath. Of course, if you eat certain kinds of food (like garlic and onions), take certain kinds of medications, or smoke cigarettes or cigars, you may also experience symptoms of bad breath.

In some cases, persistent bad breath may be a sign that you have a more serious health problem, including a gastrointestinal, respiratory or sinus problem.

In most cases, over-the-counter mouthwashes and rinses will temporarily freshen breath, but only mask the root cause. The American Dental Association acknowledges the effectiveness of some anti-microbial mouth rinses that are shown to reduce plaque and gingivitis. Good oral health habits can contribute to reducing and eliminating halitosis: brushing and flossing daily as well as regular professional cleanings performed by our office.
