Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can be caused by various problems. Oral examination can help determine the cause.

Broken or Chipped Tooth

Chipped teeth can be treated either by cosmetic bonding or porcelain restoration.

Cavities & Decay

We use modern technology to detect decay in the earliest stages, saving and preserving your teeth.

Tooth Stains

We offer a couple of whitening procedures to brighten your teeth and return the smile yo tour face.
SEALANTS

A Sealant is a clear or shaded plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces (grooves) of the back permanent teeth (premolars and molars).

The Sealant acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, thus protecting the decay-prone areas of the teeth.
Sealants prevent decay but not between the teeth so brushing and flossing are still necessary.
sealants are made of the same type of material that are used for dental white fillings.
The best time to place a sealant on a tooth is shortly after it erupts into the mouth so usually we do sealants at the 6 months recall visit.
Recent studies have shown that sealants last between 5-8 years

SPACE MAINTAINERS

If a baby tooth is lost early in life, we may recommend treatment with a space maintainer. This is an appliance that is designed to hold the space of the extracted primary tooth until the permanent tooth erupts into its proper place.
                                                        
The space maintainer should be used as soon as possible after the loss of the primary tooth due to an accident or decay . Teeth may shift position in a few weeks after the loss of the neighboring tooth. This space maintainer is fixed or cemented into your child's mouth.

MOUTH GUARDS

When a child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, injuries can occur. A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can help protect your child’s smile, and should be used during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth.
Mouth guards help prevent broken teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. A properly fitted mouth guard will stay in place while your child is wearing it, making it easy for them to talk and breathe.
