Fluoride Treatments

During a fluoride treatment, a thin layer of fluoride-rich gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that has the unique ability to strengthen and remineralize tooth enamel, which can help reverse minor tooth decay. The treatment is completely painless and takes just a few minutes, and after it’s finished you will have peace of mind that your smile is stronger and healthier.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants consist of a clear layer of dental resin, which is applied to the surfaces of your rear teeth. Once the resin forms to the shape of your teeth and hardens, it creates a barrier to protect your vulnerable molars from making contact with food debris, acid, and bacteria. Once dental sealants are applied, they can prevent cavities for up to 10 years with proper care.

Deep Cleaning

Patients suffering from gum disease will need a series of deep cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from underneath the gums. This treatment is also known as scaling & root planing. During the treatment, one of our dentists will use special dental tools to clean between your teeth and gums and remove any harmful substances. Coupled with proper oral hygiene, this treatment is often enough to eliminate gum disease during its earliest stages.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafts are used to repair gums and reverse gum recession after more serious cases of gum disease. During this procedure, oral tissue from elsewhere in your mouth is surgically attached to your gums to restore the beauty and health of your smile.

Gum Flap Surgery

Gum flap surgery is used to treat the most serious cases of gum disease. Treatment first involves numbing the patient’s gums, then gently folding them back to clean the roots and support structures of the teeth. Next, the gums are folded back into place and sutured to ensure proper, fast healing.
