Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
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.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
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.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Inside of every tooth is a chamber and set of canals that contain the blood vessels and nerves which supply the tooth. A root canal procedure is done when infection, most often from a cavity, has grown large and infected the chamber and canals. Root canal procedures carefully clean and eliminate bacteria and diseased tissue from the infected tooth, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth.
A tooth may hurt for many reasons. Sometimes a deep cavity is causing the pain, sometimes a crack which may or may not be visible to the human eye is causing the pain, sometimes the ligament which holds the tooth in bone may be causing the pain. If you are experiencing a toothache call us today and we will make sure to see you!
