Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.
Cleanings And Exams
Having a dental practice perform a checkup and regular cleaning gives a preventive approach to dental care. These general dentistry treatments help prevent problems with your teeth, gums and jaw bones, or they catch and manage problems before they worsen. During your visit, our doctors will take a picture of the current standing of your dental health and what would be needed to keep your oral hygiene in its best state.request an appointment
Sealants & Fluoride
Sealants are thin, resin coatings applied to the grooves of your premolars and molar teeth, to help prevent cavities on the chewing surfaces. Sealants can be placed at any age, but are typically applied to those under the age of 18.
Topical Fluoride treatments help to remineralize the enamel of your teeth to strengthen and help prevent cavities.
Aside from being one of the most cutting-edge technologies in dentistry, digital x-rays have many benefits including:
- enhanced/high resolution images
- drastically reduced radiation to the patient (up to 70% less)
- instant development
- enlargement options to help locate cavities
- improved diagnostics
- electronic storage
- easily stored and shared (email)
- environmentally friendly
Composite (White) Fillings
Composite fillings act as a dentistry solution for problems such as tooth decay or cracks. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.
Crowns & Bridges (Same Day/Cerec)
A crown is necessary for a broken tooth, a tooth with excessive decay, a root canal treated tooth, or a cracked tooth. We use CEREC Dental Technology to scan (a digital impression), design and mill (fabricate) your crown all in the same appointment. This eliminates the need to wear an annoying and uncomfortable temporary, as well as saving you the time from missing work or portions out of another day for an additional appointment.
A bridge is a method to replace a missing tooth by crowning the teeth on either side of an edentulous space.
The same technology used for fabricating a crown can be used to make your bridge.
Partials & Dentures
A partial denture is removable dental appliance usually used to replace several missing teeth. Partials can be made with a metal framework, or with a flexible resin acrylic, and is an economical way to replace several teeth.Dentures are a removal appliance to replace all of your missing teeth by fabricating artificial teeth and gums that are formed to your mouth. Regardless of what kind of denture you may need (partial or full), they will be custom designed to fit your mouth.
A root canal is a dental procedure used to remove the pulp (nerve) of an infected/abscessed tooth in order to alleviate the pain and remove the infection, allowing you to avoid an extraction of the infected tooth.
As Dentists, we strive to the best of our ability for every patient to save and maintain all of their teeth. There are however, unfortunate instances in which this is not possible.
In those instances, fractured, damaged, severely decayed, or otherwise non-
restorable teeth are removed surgically. Our office makes every effort to make this procedure as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
3D printed night guards
Night Guards are necessary to minimize the destructive wear to the enamel caused by the grinding or clinching of your teeth. Here at Akhrass Dental Implant & Cosmetic Center we use digital technology to scan your teeth and use design software in-house with dental 3D printers, to be able to
fabricate a night guard (a resin removable device to cover either, all of your upper or lower teeth) that can be produced in-office in one day.
