Helpful Dental Facts

We emphasize prevention.  Two visits per year can help to intercept most problems before they become serious.  These two visits can be the least expensive and best dental insurance in which a patient can invest.

Each recall visit includes a complete oral examination.  We will not only screen for tooth decay and gum disease, but also for tissue change which may indicate early state cancer.  We utilize the new oral/CPX biopsy technique, which requires no anesthetic and is extremely accurate.

Screening for gum disease (periodontal disease) is not only important in prevention of tooth loss, but recent studies have suggested a possible link between periodontal disease and other systemic problems.

We are also very involved with the latest procedures in bleaching, whitening, veneering and bonding.  It is now possible to utilize non-metallic tooth colored restorations on any tooth, regardless of tooth location or size of filling.

We are fully versed in the use of dental implants which can be very successful in both replacing individual teeth and in tightly securing partial and full dentures.
