Comprehensive Dental Exams
Prior to beginning any dental treatment, Dr. Pablo will conduct a thorough examination and discuss various treatment options. A comprehensive dental exam in our office consists of: Oral Cancer Screening, Gum Disease Assessment, Occlusal Analysis, Tooth-by-tooth exam, and X-Rays, if necessary.
Emergency Dental Treatment
We will accommodate emergency patients and provide relief from pain or discomfort even without an appointment.
Pediatric Dental Care
The American Dental Association recommends that children get evaluated by a dentist by age 1 and then at regular intervals. Routine check-ups are important to detect early crowding or malpositioning. Also good oral hygiene habits that start early can lead to a lifetime of healthy smiles! We offer sealants, oral hygiene instructions, and restorative care such as flings, pulpotomies, and stainless steel crowns.
This involves the removal of calculus or tartar from tooth surfaces below the gum line known as scaling and root planning. In some instances, delivery of local antibiotics into the gum pockets may be used.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy (RCT) usually entails one to three visits. During the first visit, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. Diseased tissue is removed, the inner chamber cleansed and disinfected and the tiny canals reshaped. The cleansed chamber and canals are filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent infection. If necessary, the drilled hole is temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a final restoration (usually a crown).
Tooth Colored Fillings
Also known as composites, these esthetic fillings match the original color of the teeth as opposed to silver or metal fillings.
A simple tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. A surgical extraction involves a tooth that is not easily accessible in the mouth, either because they have broken off at the gum line or because they have not come in yet.
Partial and complete dentures are removable appliances that support missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They function to help you to properly chew food, a difficult task when you are missing teeth. In addition, a denture may improve speech and prevent a sagging face by providing support for lips and cheeks.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface or implant restoring it to its original shape and size. There are several types of crowns available, tooth colored ones are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.
A missing tooth can be replaced with a more permanent solution than a bridge or denture, in the form of a dental implant. Implants involve the implantation of an artificial tooth root in the jaw and the application of a new, natural looking prosthetic tooth onto that root.
Teeth can be become stained, dull, and discolored from medications, age, and certain food and beverages. A take home bleaching treatment with a high concentration gel and a custom fitted tray for effective delivery of the bleaching agent can brighten and improve your smile.
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a night guard will help reduce further damage to your teeth. Additionally, a bite splint is a non-invasive option to alleviate symptoms associated with TMJ discomfort.
Invisalign – The Alternative to Metal Braces
Looking for an alternative to metal braces Invisalign is the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort—every reason to smile.
With Invisalign, Dr. Pablo can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.
How does it work?
We will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once we have established Invisalign is the right treatment option for you, Dr. Pablo will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that Invisalign uses in manufacturing your custom aligners.
What can it do?
Invisalign can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities. Contact us today how Invisalign can help you.
