Your First Visit
A Personalized Plan
During your first visit, we will discuss your dental history, take images of your teeth and mouth, and perform a comprehensive exam. Once we an understanding of your current dental situation, our team will create a personalized treatment plan with you and answer your questions..
These provide a lot of detail and allow your dentist to find cavities, check the health of the tooth root and bone surrounding the tooth, check the status of developing teeth, and monitor the general health of your teeth and jawbone.
Comprehensive exams are an important part of establishing and maintaining your oral health. During your first exam with us and with the use of a full series of x-rays and photos, we will:
- Evaluation of your medical and dental histories

The ADA Recommends You Visit Every 6 Months
Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These compounds, often called composite resins, are usually used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, but they can also be used on the back teeth depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay.
There are two different kinds of fillings: direct and indirect. Direct fillings are fillings placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit. They include silver amalgam, glass ionomers, resin ionomers, and composite (resin) fillings. Indirect fillings generally require two or more visits. They include inlays, onlays, and veneers. They are used when a tooth has too much damage to support a filling but not enough to necessitate a crown.
There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.
When it is determined that a tooth needs to be removed, your dentist may extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may request another visit for this procedure. The root of each tooth is encased within your jawbone in a “tooth socket,” and your tooth is held in that socket by a ligament. In order to extract a tooth, your dentist must expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament holding it in place. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with your doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.
Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, your dentist may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. The cap restores the tooth’s shape and size, strength, and appearance.The crowns, when cemented into place, cover the visible portion of a tooth. Using our Cerec machine, we can provide a permanent crown in a single visit.
A dental crown may be needed to:
- Protect a weak tooth (for example, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- Restore a broken tooth or a severely worn down tooth
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a tooth treated with a root canal
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. People who suffer from missing or failing teeth and chronic dental problems turn to implants instead of dentures, bridges and crowns, This is due to the fit and function giving a natural feel, making dental implants the new standard in tooth replacement.
What makes dental implants feel completely comfortable and secure? We use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw as time passes. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for your new tooth, meaning there’s no slippage or other movement like you might get with dentures. There are no issues when eating with implants, which means no regular repairs or worrying about showing off your smile.
