Life, stress, accidents, age…they all take their toll on teeth. Research has shown that almost everybody has a 95% chance of experiencing some tooth decay. When tooth decay does occur, it is highly important to remove the decay, clean the tooth and repair the tooth with some type of restoration. Additionally, lost or missing teeth need to be replaced to protect your overall oral health. Furthermore, appropriate timing can mean the difference between eliminating a small concern, or facing a chronic, serious condition. In fact, oral health problems can lead to a whole host of other general health issues if not treated in a timely manner: including heart disease, stroke, diabetes complications, respiratory trouble, and problem pregnancies. That’s why we’re so vigilant during our exams. We carefully evaluate your entire mouth, identify problems while they’re small, and then educate you about what we see, as well as possible treatment strategies.
Our services include, but are not limited to, procedures such as fillings, same day crowns, bridges and implants.
