Great Smiles Don't Just Happen
No matter how often or thoroughly you brush, you can never completely get rid of all the bacteria and food particles that accumulate on the surface of your teeth. Left untreated, this residue – commonly known as plaque – can cause everything from cavities to gum disease. A trip to DentalWorks twice a year can help prevent these and other dental problems. Working closely with you, we can customize a professional cleaning plan that takes into account your individual needs. Our services include:
By examining your teeth once every three to six months as per the American Dental Association’s® recommendation, we can identify and treat potential trouble spots before they become serious problems. We perform a thorough examination, evaluating the health of your teeth and gums. We then review any findings with you and the options needed to return you to excellent oral health.
You should also have an annual oral cancer screening once a year with our advanced technology. It only takes a few minutes, but it could wind up saving your life. Oral cancer is more common than you might think; 27% of those who get it don't smoke, drink alcohol or have any of the lifestyle risk factors normally associated with the disease. Fortunately, the earlier it is detected, the easier it is to cure. Learn more about this important cancer examination.
Having a professional dental cleaning once every six months can improve your appearance, your breath – even your overall health. Recent studies seem to suggest a link between poor oral hygiene and an increased risk of heart attack and strokes. By removing plaque before it hardens into tartar and irritates and infects your gum tissue, we can keep you and your teeth healthy. Once we thoroughly clean and floss your teeth, we'll polish them to restore their natural luster.
Regularly scheduled fluoride treatments can play an important part in preventing cavities. You should also use an American Dental Association®-approved fluoride toothpaste when brushing.
If you don’t brush, floss and see your dentist regularly, tooth decay can set in and you could wind up with a cavity. We offer resin tooth colored fillings that not only look and feel better but also bond to the tooth to make it stronger. If you prefer, you can have composite (white) fillings that more closely match the color of your teeth; click here for details.
Because back teeth are harder to reach, they're more difficult to clean, leaving them vulnerable to the devastating effects of plaque buildup. A clear resin applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth, sealants serve as a kind of shield by preventing food particles and acids from finding their way into the small crevices where decay typically starts. While sealants are often recommended for children and teenagers, they can provide long-lasting protection for adults as well.
In the most severe cases, the plaque that causes tooth decay eats its way through the enamel that forms the outer layer of your tooth and attacks the soft core of tissue inside known as the pulp. If that happens, you may need a root canal to save the tooth. The procedure typically takes no more than three visits and is no more painful than having a filling. After the infected pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, shaped and sealed. With regular checkups and proper care, your restored tooth should last for the rest of your life.
