When you come to us for an exam, you receive an accurate assessment of your dental health. We use safe and effective digital X-rays
that generate less radiation while providing greater diagnostic capabilities than traditional film X-rays.
With our intra-oral digital camera
, we can view older restorations, tooth decay, and cracks in teeth. They provide us with a detailed internal look at your teeth, so you can see for yourself when there are any problems. Our high-tech tools also help provide you with more options for care and treatment.
Stop dental problems before they start with preventative dentistry from Professional Dental Associates
. Treatments include using sealants on children's permanent molars during their cavity-prone years. Sealants fill in deep grooves where tooth decay often begins and typically last for five to seven years.
We also do custom fit night guards
to prevent excessive tooth wear and fracturing of patients' dentition. They are comfortable and patients are more willing to wear them rather than over-the-counter night guards.
Common symptoms of gum disease include bad breath, bleeding and sore gums and, in extreme cases, pain. To correct this issue, conservative periodontal treatment is our goal, with the option of more involved treatment when necessary.
For treatment, we do deep cleanings
. This includes going beneath the gum areas and cleaning the calculus, which stimulates gum healing. Sometimes, this technique will work.
Our board certified periodontist performs pocket reduction gum surgery for treatment in more advanced cases, in addition to the surgical placement of dental implants
