Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination will generally include a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. We will also take appropriate x-rays as needed. This may include: a panoramic x-ray (a full mouth image), bitewings (to check for decay between teeth), and/or periapical x-rays (for the proper diagnosis of bone loss, cysts, abcesses, and other abnormalities). Depending on your particular situation, we may also utilize an optical laser for cavity detection or a magnifying intraoral camera to examine questionable areas. Except for the cost of x-rays, any of these other services are included as part of the initial exam with no additional cost.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces, chipping, or discoloration, as well as those that are oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, or crooked. Read More...
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a porcelain-like material that is placed on top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between two teeth.
