We Offer Total Dental Care for Your Family
It all starts with a comprehensive oral examination which includes all parts of your mouth. This provides Dr. Greg with detailed information about the health of your teeth, gums and related sectors.
Education and Cleanings
Learning the proper way to care for your teeth and gums combined with regular professional cleanings are usually all that is needed to preserve a healthy mouth. Our office can provide you with both: dental education and professional cleanings. Over 75 percent of Americans over age 35 have some form of gum disease. Gum disease is worth preventing. If you have gum disease, it will be detected during a cleaning appointment. Upon detection, Dr. Greg will be able to recommend a treatment plan.
Dental sealants are proven to prevent cavities. These plastic professionally-applied sealants are placed on the chewing surface of back teeth. They provide a physical barrier against cavity-causing bacteria. While marketed primarily to children, adults who want to avoid the risk of cavities can benefit from the application of sealants.
Your comprehensive examination will include x-rays, including a panoramic x-ray of your entire mouth. Using the information gathered, Dr. Greg will study the results and recommend a personalized dental health plan. This will include an explanation of any treatments deemed necessary.
Reducing X-Ray Radiation
Through the use of Computerized Digital Radiography (CDR) we have reduced the amount of radiation received by patients undergoing routine x-rays by more than 80 percent. We also use a lead shield with our CDR, even though the amount of radiation you will be exposed to is less than what you might receive during a sunny walk in the park.
