Preventive appointments, biannually or as recommended by your dentist, include removal of plaque and tartar to keep decay from forming, professional teeth cleaning, a thorough oral exam, and x-rays if needed.
If you have a cavity, you’re no longer stuck with obvious silver amalgam. We use tooth-colored fillings that blend with the natural color of your teeth. The fillings are barely visible and your white smile stays white.
The dentists at Eastmont Family Dental perform routine and wisdom teeth extractions. We are happy to discuss the process with you before the procedure so you know exactly what to expect.
Sometimes, decay extends into the roots of a tooth or a trauma will cause damage to a tooth’s root. This root contains pulp, or soft tissue that can become inflamed or infected. To treat the tooth, we perform a root canal. The procedure allows us to remove the pulp and clean the root thoroughly, fill the space with gutta percha, and cover the tooth with either a filling or a crown, depending on the remaining structure of the tooth.
CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
Creating and placing dental crowns used to be a procedure that took several appointments. Luckily, we have the CEREC® system! With CEREC®, we can create a 3D scan of your teeth — no more messy molds — that is used by our computer software to plan the size and shape of the crown. The CEREC® then actually mills the crown right in the office, so we can place it for you right away.
If, for any reason, you lose a tooth it is important to fill the space left behind. When a gap in the teeth is not filled, the adjacent teeth may drift, causing misalignment of the bite surfaces. This can result in problems eating, difficult speech, and more. A dental implant is the permanent solution to replacing a tooth.
During the implant procedure, we will place a small titanium post in the jaw. When the titanium implant has fused to the jawbone, we will place a permanent crown over it. Once completed, your crown will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth.
Gingival (gum) grafting has become a much less invasive and uncomfortable process thanks to the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). This advancement allows our dentists to perform the necessary treatment with only a “pinhole” incision for each tooth that requires treatment. Gum surgery may be used to correct receding gums, cover exposed tooth roots, and other gum problems.
