Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting to note all existing restorations, missing teeth and needed treatment. In addition, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations will be performed during your first visit. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
You’ll still need to visit the dentist even if you practice a consistent oral hygiene regimen. Only your dentist can reach those hard-to-reach places in your smile with professional dental tools. There are also cleaning and maintenance techniques that only they can perform. Dentists also have the tools and expertise to check for any signs of underlying issues that may be invisible to the naked or untrained eye like early-stage gum disease.
The best way to determine which treatments are best for your smile is to schedule an initial consultation with your dentist. They’ll examine the condition of your teeth as well as take digital scans of your smile to map out a series of procedures that are tailored to your needs. Be sure to ask your dentist any questions you may have about their services and how you may benefit.
Most dental insurance plans cover preventive and family services such as cleanings and oral exams. Some companies may also cover restorative treatments like same-day dental crowns as well as implants. It’s recommended that you contact your provider to get a better understanding of your coverage. Your dentist may also provide financing options to help with expenses.
Start by asking for recommendations from friends and family to see if they have a dentist in mind that you can trust. You also can’t go wrong with checking online reviews and ratings. Try to compare dentists based on their credentials, dental education, experience, and how much you’ll have to commute in order to visit their office.
