PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

Prophy cleanings - The polishing of the dentition.

X-rays - We offer traditional bitewing and peri-apical x-rays as well as a panoramic x-ray which shows the developing adult dentition and positioning of the wisdom teeth. All of our X-rays are digital to reduce radiation to your child. 

Fluoride - The application of a fluoride solution or gel to the teeth as a means of controlling or preventing caries.

Sealants - A dental sealant is a thin resin coating placed into the pits and fissures of teeth to act as a physical barrier to decay.


RESTORATIVE DENTAL CARE

Composite "white" Fillings - Composite is a "tooth colored" filling material.

Stainless Steel Crowns - Full coverage stainless steel crowns to restore teeth with decay that has extended throughout the tooth.

All White Zirconia Crowns - Full coverage tooth colored crowns. For teeth with extensive decay, these types of crowns may not be possible. Evaluation upon clinical exam is necessary. 

Extractions - The premature removal of primary or permanent teeth due to dental caries or space maintenance issues. 


GENTLE SEDATION OPTIONS

Nitrous Oxide Sedation - Nitrous oxide/Oxygen inhalation is a safe and effective technique to reduce anxiety, produce analgesia, and enhance effective communication between the patient and health care provider. This is often referred to as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it.

TIVA (Total Intravenous Anesthesia) - This type of sedation is for younger children with dental anxiety or special needs patients. Typically these children are in need of treatment and unable to cooperate with any other behavior management method. This method of anesthesia is performed by a hospital trained anesthesiologist and is a monitored deep sedation.
