Our plan provides access to all dental services.
Cleanings: There are several different types of cleaning: routine cleaning, deep cleaning, and periodontal maintenance cleaning. A routine cleaning is performed on patients every six months, the gums are healthy, and pink in color. A deep cleaning is preformed when a patient has not had a regular professional cleaning every six months. The gums are red in color, can bleed when brushing or flossing, there is sometimes an odor. Once the deep cleaning is preformed it is necessary to have follow up periodontal cleanings.
Crowns: A crown is a full-coverage prosthetic tooth replacement. It is not an implant; it does not replace the root(s) of a tooth, just the portion above the gum line. Crowns are recommended when teeth are severely damaged, malformed, or have had a root canal procedure.
Tooth Colored Fillings: Fillings are used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).
Root Canals: A root canal is necessary when the decay or bacteria is into the nerve of the tooth. Our doctor will remove the decay and fill the canals when a medicated filling material. It is also necessary in most cases to have a crown to protect the tooth from breaking.
Extractions: The removal of a broken or decayed tooth. When too much damage prevents repair, the tooth must be removed. There are several options to replace a missing tooth.
Replace Missing Teeth:
Implants: Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are constructed from titanium and surgically placed in the bone.
Bridges: A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. These two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and a false tooth in between. This false tooth is called a pontic and can be made from gold, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
Partials or Dentures: A partial denture is a partial prosthetic replacement of one to many teeth. It is fabricated with a cast metal substructure, and sometimes a thermoplastic substructure, depending on the individual case. It can be used for replacement of upper and/or lower teeth. A denture replaces all teeth in either an upper or lower jaw
