Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis) is a procedure for the removal of tartar and plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing. Our dental hygienist uses tooth scaling, flossing, polishing and debridement to remove accumulated tartar. Good oral hygiene helps to prevent cavities, tartar build-up, and gum disease.

A dental filling or dental restoration is a material used to restore the function and integrity of a damaged tooth. We provide both metal and composite fillings depending upon our patients preferences and needs.
We provide a full range of dental crowns including laminate, porcelain, semi-precious, gold, and ceramic. A crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. Typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement, they are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Types of bridges vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. The materials used for the bridges include gold, porcelain fused to metal, or in the correct situation porcelain alone.
- Root Canals
A root canal is the treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows, and the filling of the decontaminated canals.
- Dentures and Partials
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs. Partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. Complete dentures or full dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch.
