Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, oral cancer screening, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which may include a full mouth x-ray (FMX) for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of decay between the teeth. If you have had an FMX in the last 5 years or bite-wing x-rays in the last 2 years, please ask your previous dentist to send them to [email protected]
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic coverings (caps), made of porcelain, and/or metal materials which is placed on the top of a damaged tooth. Crowns are also typically used to restore a tooth's function 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...

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
