Cleanings and Check-Ups
Dental care shouldn't have to focus on fixing problems. Rather, let's customize a plan to prevent problems before they occur. The American Dental Association recommends two visits to your dentist each year. Besides prophylaxis and examination, these appointments allow Dr. Frost and staff an opportunity for early detection, tips for improving your home care, and for the creation of a customized plan for prevention.
Treating children is different than treating adults! So much so that we dedicated an entire page to the kiddos.
Some cavities and tooth fractures require fillings or crowns. We work very hard to ensure that the fillings, crowns, and bridges we place look good, feel good, and allow you to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
If the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or has begun to cause pain, sometimes the only way to save the tooth is by having a root canal done. Contrary to out-dated public perception, root canals are no longer lengthy, painful treatments. Best of all, they can relieve pain and allow you to safely keep your tooth.
Emergency Dental Care
There are a number of reasons why teeth or gums may cause pain. No matter the source, dental pain is never an enjoyable experience. We are committed to seeing you as quickly as possible and helping to relieve your pain.
We have all heard of gum disease (periodontal disease). But did you know that approximately 50% of Americans have some form of it? Periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss. While not all forms of gum disease require deep cleanings, our skilled dental hygienists are highly qualified to assess and treat your gums so that they may return to health.
Sometimes the tooth just has to come out. We understand that no one is excited to have a tooth pulled, but we are committed to making the experience comfortable.
Tooth loss can leave gaps in your smile, cause loss of bone in your jaw, and lead to difficulty eating and speaking. Dental implants have become a popular method of replacing teeth. A titanium screw is used to permanently replace the root of the lost tooth, and a ceramic crown is attached over the top to fill in the gap. The best part? Dental implant placement is typically not a painful experience.
Partial and Complete Dentures
Another option for the replacement of missing teeth, dentures help to maintain chewing, speaking, and aesthetics. Unlike implants, dentures are not permanent and should be taken out each night. While partial dentures may replace as few as just one tooth, complete dentures may be the right option to replace all of your teeth.
Temporomandibular Disorder and Grinding
Waking up with a sore jaw? Having trouble opening? You could be one of the millions of Americans suffering from a TMJ issue. A customized night guard can allow you to eliminate the pain and maintain your teeth.
