Here's the List
Perhaps most important in your dental health is your Dental Hygiene. Without proper maintenance you are at risk of losing your teeth. Our dental hygiene department takes pride in helping our patients keep their teeth for a lifetime! Our hygienist, Denise, is experienced and gentle, yet extremely thorough. We can tailor a dental maintenance schedule just right for you!
If you’ve neglected your teeth for awhile, you may need more than just a simple cleaning. We offer pain-free Periodontal Therapy to remove bacteria-laden tartar from below your gums, so you can extend the life of your teeth.
We use modern Digital Radiography (x-rays) to examine your teeth, gums and jaws. The advantages are:
1. Fifty percent less radiation than traditional dental x-rays.
2. Instant images on a computer screen
3. The ability to enhance theses images digitally to provide the clearest diagnostic capabilities.
Of, course, when you have a cavity, we’ll fix it! Many times this can be done with a Filling. We don’t use old-fashioned and ugly silver fillings anymore. Instead, we use tooth-colored materials for greater strength and better aesthetics.
Sometimes a tooth is so broken down or weak a filling will not suffice. For these cases we use a Crown, which covers and protects a tooth.
If you are missing a tooth, the best way to replace it is often with an Implant. An implant is a titanium tooth root which is placed in the space of the missing tooth and covered with a crown. This enables us to give you back your missing tooth without touching any of your other teeth. It is the most conservative way to replace a tooth permanently.
If an implant is not an option, we can still, of course, replace missing teeth with more traditional services such as a Bridge or Dentures.
In cases of tooth pain, we are available for Emergency Service. If the tooth is ultimately able to be saved, we do a Root Canal. I know this sounds scary and has a dubious reputation, but our treatment is absolutely painless and has a better than 99% success rate. Dr. Slobodinsky has 25 years of experience and uses the latest technology.
Alas, if there is nothing we can do to save your tooth, we can only offer Extraction. Again, this is a painless procedure.
Now for some cool stuff.
We can straighten crooked teeth with invisible, removable braces! Invisalign is a high-tech orthodontic system that doesn’t use ugly silver brackets and wires. Instead, we use clear “aligners”, which are invisible while you wear them, and gently straighten your teeth.
You can remove them to eat, brush and floss. The results we’ve had with them for five years now is nothing short of amazing!
Would you like your teeth to be whiter? If so, we offer the very best in Tooth Whitening. We can now whiten your teeth dramatically without any sensitivity!
If you are an athlete or just a weekend warrior, we can fit you with a Custom Mouthguard. These not only offer better protection than the store bought kind, but also allow you to breathe, speak, spit and drink much easier!
Perhaps our best service is our Patient Customer Service. Your every need is attended to by our caring and attentive staff, overseen by our terrific Office Manager, Darlene.
She is in charge of assuring that all of our patients are treated as Kings and Queens. Whether it’s maximizing your insurance, filing your claims, finding you a convenient appointment time or just listening to your concerns, we make ourselves totally committed to our patient’s total and overall satisfaction.
