General Dentistry Services
Our experienced dental hygienists are focused on complete preventive care for our patients. They use the latest in ultrasonic cleaning instruments and laser cavity detection systems to discover even the smallest cavity.
A filling takes the place of a tooth structure damaged due to decay or fracture. We replace old, broken-down amalgam/metal fillings that contain traces of mercury with white fillings (composites) to restore your smile and teeth to a more natural look and feel.
Left long enough, decay can burrow into the deeper reaches of the tooth, causing extensive damage to tooth structure. A root canal is a procedure that extracts decayed pulp from the central part of the tooth, reshapes the canal, and replaces it with strengthening filler.
When the damage goes beyond what can be treated with a filling, our dentists can perform a root canal (or endodontics), preserving the tooth and retaining its original integrity; thereby, saving a tooth that in the past would have to have been pulled. Patients must see their dentist quickly for a permanent restoration of the tooth.
