STARTING OFF WITH GOOD DENTAL CARE

General & Family Dentistry

Family dentistry is for patients of all ages, offering complete and comprehensive dental care.

At AAdvanced Dental we offer professional dental health care including checkups, oral health consultations, dental hygiene cleanings, and any necessary dental treatment.

Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can be caused by a number of issues. Oral examination will be required to determine the cause.

Broken or Chipped Tooth

Chipped teeth can be treated either by tooth-colored composite bonding or a ceramic restoration.

Cavities & Decay

We use modern technology to detect decay in the earliest stages, which results in a more conservative restoration, thus saving and preserving your teeth.

Stained and miscolored teeth

We offer whitening procedures to brighten your teeth and return a beautiful smile to your face
WHY IS PREVENTION IMPORTANT?

Oral Health for Overall Health

Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent caries and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being.

Healthy gums are just as important as well-cared-for teeth.  Allowing periodontal disease to progress will eventually lead to tooth loss, in addition to causing a number of other health issues.
At AAdvanced Dental we will advise you on how to properly brush your teeth and explain the best techniques for maintaining good oral health. We will also make sure that you maintain regular dental hygiene appointments to insure that your gums are as healthy as possible.

Basic Dental Care

Dental health is an important aspect of a person's medical and psychological well-being. Recent medical research has determined that poor dental health is linked to other medical issues, including major heart disease, gastro-intestinal problems, headaches, etc Taking good care of your teeth and gums will result in better overall health.

Crowns / Bridges

If a tooth has a substantial amount of decay or accidental chip or crack, a crown may be required to fix the damage. A crown is a ceramic, metal/ceramic, or gold shell placed over a damaged tooth. Ceramic crowns would be preferred choice of treatment for front teeth as they are completely natural looking, strong, and biologically compatible. For back teeth patient may choose a gold crown; the advantage being that gold is "softer" than ceramic and results in less wear on opposing tooth when chewing. But regardless of which material is used, crowns are an excellent long-term treatment option and in ideal conditions can last decades. A bridge consists of two or more crowns joined together, and is commonly used when one or more teeth are completely missing.

Veneers

Veneers are a conservative aesthetic restoration to close gaps, correct crooked teeth, whiten discolored teeth and give you a beautiful smile (smile makeover). Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front and biting surfaces of the teeth. Very little tooth structure is removed in order to accommodate the veneer shell. This results in a strong, functional, natural looking and beautiful smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the biggest technological advance in dentistry today. The ADA considers implants the best way to replace missing teeth. Implants are titanium or composite pins that are surgically placed into the jaw bone and are topped off with a crown that blends in perfectly with the rest of the teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace one or multiple teeth, eliminating the use of bridges and dentures. Implants can also be used to support dentures with precision attachments that lock the dentures in place. Patients don't have to worry about their dentures moving around anymore!!

Mercury-Free Fillings

The dark silver (amalgam) fillings have been the commonly accepted standard for cavity restoration for over 100 years, but they bring forth a number of disadvantages. Amalgam fillings are not bonded to the remaining tooth structure, so more healthy tissue needs to be removed to make sure the restoration stays in place. They also expand with heat and contract with cold, eventually causing fractures in the adjacent tooth structure which allows bacteria to enter, resulting in further decay. Amalgams can also cause gum discoloration.

Removing Mercury Fillings

Currently there is a lot of concern about possible health problems caused by mercury in amalgam fillings. Although the American Dental Association asserts that dental amalgam materials are safe, some countries in Europe have banned the use of silver/mercury alloys for dental restorations. In our office we utilize a specific amalgam removal protocol when replacing silver amalgam fillings with composites. Special high-suction device called Clean Up is used to protect patients against contamination when removing old amalgams.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Crooked and misaligned teeth may not only affect your smile but cause increased wear, pain, and poor gum health. Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets or wires, instead using transparent plastic aligners that are switched out every one to two weeks. These are worn all the time but are taken out for meals. They are practically invisible, and are a huge improvement over the old metal braces from last century.

Bruxism - Teeth Clenching

Bruxism is the clinical term for excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching, which can affect individuals of all ages. It commonly occurs during sleep but can also happen while awake. Symptoms of bruxism include headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain, and wear/cracking of teeth. Treatment typically involves wearing a nightguard for mild cases, while an injectable neurotoxin may be prescribed for more severe cases with headaches or migraines.
