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 may include a 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.

Crowns and Bridges
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. Read More...

Sometimes a simple toothache or pain in the gums can be relieved by flossing or rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. A toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between one tooth and another tooth. Although if you have a toothache that has a prolonged throbbing, waking you or keeping you awake or is brought on by exposure to something hot, it's very unlikely it's going to get better by itself. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. If it hurts, it's better to have it checked than wait and see if it starts feeling better. Too often people are thinking about this while they are sitting up with a toothache. Read More...
