The American Dental Association recommends twice-yearly exams and cleanings.  Some people may need more frequent check-ups based on their dental needs. After your first exam, we’ll be able to determine the best frequency for your dental health.

Please call our office at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. We will work with you to help you find another date that fits your schedule.

We understand that unforeseen situations may arise that are out of our control, but we do ask you to give our office notice so that we may accommodate patients who are able to come in at your scheduled time.  If you miss consecutive appointments, without canceling, you may be charged a no cancellation fee. 

If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you within 24 hours. If you are a patient of record and need urgent dental care after our office hours, please call the after-hours phone number which will be provided at your first visit.

TREATMENTS

We will conduct a thorough examination on your first visit to determine the best course of action to achieve dental health and your goals. We will:

  • Take full mouth x-rays to identify any current problems and to use as a baseline on future visits to detect early signs of problems.
  • Assess gum condition and health.
  • Examine teeth for cavities and condition of old dental restorations.
  • Perform a head and neck exam, including salivary glands and lymph nodes, for swelling or other abnormalities.
  • Screen for oral cancer and TMJ (jaw joint).
  • Develop a comprehensive oral health care plan which includes a cleaning and recommended cleaning schedule

Many health conditions are revealed in the mouth and can affect oral health, so your medical information is very important in diagnosing issues with your teeth, gums and mouth.

Fillings can last for many years, but over time they wear down, discolor, crack and sometimes fall out. Early detection of problems with fillings can help you avoid getting cavities under the filling and causing more serious decay. Let us know if you’re experiencing any pain. We will check your fillings at every visit to determine if there are any concerns or problems.

We use Composite Fillings in our office. Composite fillings are widely preferred to amalgam today to fill new cavities and replace old fillings needing repair.  The advancements in composite fillings allow patients to have a durable and fracture resistant restoration while maintaining the esthetics of natural teeth.  Please note, some insurance providers will not approve composite fillings in posterior teeth, which would increase your out-of-pocket expenses.

Absolutely. Dental xrays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools. Many oral conditions occur between teeth or under the gums or bones, undetectable by the human eye, and may have no early signs or symptoms. Left untreated, these conditions can create serious dental and general health problems, including loss of teeth and heart problems. Early detection with xrays can make treatment much less painful, faster, and less expensive. The American Dental Association recommends getting a full series every three years.

SEDATION

Many dental procedures can be completed under local anesthesia. However, to help more anxious patients relax, or for more complex procedures, inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide/laughing gas) and/or oral sedation are available.

The most common anesthesia, Novocaine works by blocking the nerve that supplies sensation to the teeth in a specific area. You feel no pain during the procedure and are totally alert, aware, and able to function normally. The effect wears off fairly quickly with no side effects.

Known as nitrous oxide or “laughing gas,” you’ll experience a feeling of euphoria after just 2-3 minutes of breathing in the gas. You’ll be aware of your surroundings and able to respond to questions. Inhalation sedation has very few side effects and is eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 minutes after the gas supply is stopped.

This general anesthetic allows you to be conscious during treatment, but provides a deeper level of sedation than Inhalation Sedation.  We provide you with medication to be taken before your appointment, allowing you to be fully relaxed by the time we begin your dental treatment. You may not be safe to drive, so you should expect to have someone bring you to our office and take you home after your appointment.

CHILDREN

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you should begin cleaning your child’s gums with a soft cloth soon after birth.  As soon as the first tooth appears, start brushing twice daily with a soft infant toothbrush with water. When you come in for your child’s first visit, we’ll show you how to brush properly and give you recommendations regarding toothpastes.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends visiting the dentist as soon as the first tooth appears, or by the child’s first birthday. We can look for potential problems and help your child get to know us as their friend. These early visits can make your child’s experience with a dentist a positive one.  We start seeing patients as early as 6 months of age.

Please note that patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all visits. We want to meet with both of you to discuss findings and treatments, and to address your questions and concerns.

Yes, please call our office and we will do everything we can to accommodate your specific scheduling needs.
