Check ups should be performed every 6 months, or as directed by your dentist to ensure optimal dental health. Checkups almost always include a complete cleaning and a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, looking for signs of disease or other problems. Some check ups require X-Rays to check for any damage that is not on the surface.
Both regular and deep cleaning available to meet your individual needs.
Dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by dental implants.
Healthy primary teeth or baby teeth is vital for proper chewing and establishing proper alignment of the adult teeth coming in correctly. Early loss of primary/baby teeth due to decay and infection will compromise your child’s bite, alignment, and formation of their adult teeth.
In addition it is never too early to have your child get familiar and comfortable visiting our office!
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.
There are no loose parts to worry about losing. The dental implant is stable and comfortable. No adjustment is needed after placement. Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
There are several ways to alleviate the effects of bruxism, also known as teeth grinding. One of the most common is a night guard. This is an appliance typically worn while sleeping through the night, which is available without a prescription at most pharmacies.
Night guards are also available through your dentist. Guards of this type tend to be of a higher quality and superior fit, as they are made in a special laboratory from an impression of your mouth carefully taken by a dental professional. This is generally a more expensive device than one purchased over-the-counter, but can be more comfortable to wear.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that can be placed over your tooth or dental implant. The crown restores the tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
When the Cook Family Dentistry team has decided to go ahead with a full crown restoration, we will set aside 2-3 appointments for the entire process. Although the majority of crowns are completed in two visits, there is sometimes a need for a third visit to ensure a proper fit.
Whitening procedures can be done in dental office with one visit or be purchased over-the-counter. However, over-the-counter whitening agents will not whiten your teeth as quickly or as effectively as those delivered by a dentist.
Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained. Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods, a beautiful white smile could be closer than you think.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
We work with each patient individually to find the best option for them.
