Why Are My Teeth Sensitive?
What Should I Do To Prevent Gum Disease And Tooth Decay?
Great teeth and gum care starts at home. Brushing and flossing on a daily basis is the best way to take care of your teeth and gums on a continual basis. By keeping to a daily routine you will minimize the risk of gingivitis or tooth decay as you age.
What Is Tooth Whitening?
Tooth whitening must be monitored by your dentist and only done after a comprehensive exam and hygiene cleaning.
The whitening process can last for many years if maintained properly, though beverages such as coffee, tea, cola, and wine will reduce the lasting effect. Remember, if it could stain a white shirt, it will stain your smile!

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
- Dental Implants look and function like your natural tooth
- Dental Implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth
- Dental Implants are maintained by routine hygiene visits to your dental office
- Dental Implants decrease the possibility of bone loss, periodontal disease, tooth movement, and further tooth loss
- Dental Implants replace the need for a removable full or partial denture
- Dental Implants focus only on the tooth or teeth that are missing. A traditional bridge would involve the two or more adjacent teeth being compromised to create a false tooth in between
What Does The Dental Implant Procedure Involve?
The average dental implant procedure takes 3–4 visits. The first visit is to x-ray the area and take an impression for a surgical guide and a temporary prosthesis to cover the Implant.
The next visit is to place the implant. A local anesthesia is applied to the area. The dentist will make a minor incision, place the implant into the jaw bone, and cover the area with sutures. The procedure is usually completed with minor pain.
You will return in approximately three months to begin creating the porcelain crown.

What Is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis is a condition caused when bacteria surrounds the teeth and enters the gums. The gums can become irritated, inflamed and often bleed. In order to prevent the condition from worsening, regular hygiene visits are highly recommended. During your visit, our hygiene team will teach you proper flossing techniques and oral hygiene protocol for home preventative care.
What Is The Difference Between A White Filling And A Silver Filling?
White fillings, also known as composites, are often made of plastic or glass polymers. These cosmetic fillings allow us to fill a cavity with a substance that will look and feel just like your existing tooth structure. This restoration is created with a resin material and fits tightly into a tooth to prevent decay. Rather than a gray or silver material in your mouth, the composite color will match the tooth color.
