During an exam, Dr. Eric Ford will evaluate your oral hygiene. He will complete a full examination to see if there are any problems, see if you are at risk for gum or bone disease, and assess your need for tooth restoration.
Teeth cleanings are essential for proper dental hygiene as they prevent diseases and tooth loss. During a cleaning, specialized instruments are used to remove tartar from your teeth where the gum meets the tooth.
A white filling is a plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. It is generally used for cosmetic improvements. The filling is placed on the tooth and a special light is used to harden the filling. Once the filling is finished, it is polished to maintain a natural look.
Dental X-rays are a very important tool in helping us diagnose and treat dental conditions. Our dental team will take only those x-rays necessary for complete and proper diagnosis.
The basis of sound dental care is routine cleaning and maintenance. We customize cleanings on the basis of your periodontal (gums and bone) health. Ultrasonic scalers are sometimes used to make the procedure more comfortable and effective as well.
Our hygienists have several combined years of experience and pride themselves on making your hygiene experience comfortable, educational and beneficial.
Bonding is a quick, painless in-office procedure to repair cracks, chips, gaps between teeth or cover stained teeth to enhance your smile. Bonding can often be done without anesthesia if there is no decay or pulp exposure. The bonding material is developed in many shades allowing the dentist to accurately match the shade of your natural teeth. The composite resin forms a durable, stain resistant surface that is later smoothed and polished to give it a natural appearance and feel.Bonding can be used to:
- Protect exposed roots of teeth
- Repair cracks, unevenness, chips
- Close spaces between your front teeth
- Reshape crooked or misshapen teeth
- Replace old or unattractive silver fillings
- Whiten stained teeth
- Stabilize loose teeth
When a tooth has too much damage and can’t be repaired, it will have to be removed. There are two types of extractions, a simple extraction, and a surgical extraction. Extractions may also be necessary due to crowding or wisdom tooth complications.
Preventative Dental Care
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth and keeping them healthy. This helps avoid cavities, gum disease, and more. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily, visiting your dentist, and eating a balanced diet are the many forms of preventive dentistry.
