At Always There Dental Care, we start with a comprehensive examination of teeth and gums to create a customized treatment plan for your unique oral needs. Your examination will include low-radiation digital x-rays to detect decay between the teeth, periodontal measurements, and an oral cancer screening. We then use both hand instruments and an ultrasonic scaler to gently break up plaque and tartar that build up below the gum line. Our team will also tell you what you need to know about home care between visits to make future cleanings effortless.
Whatever the dental emergency, you should be seen as soon as possible! When these problems arise, call our office, and we’ll do our very best to get you in that day to be treated and feeling better in no time. Dental emergencies include- but are not limited to trauma, abscess, bleeding gums, and extreme pain.
Dental implants are metal posts surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums to provide stable support for artificial teeth. Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but first, the bone must be augmented with a bone graft. Dentures and bridges mounted to dental implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth, making you feel more comfortable and confident about eating and speaking. After receiving implants, regular follow-up visits are essential.
Crowns are full-coverage restorations used to cover a tooth with a high likelihood of fracturing or being too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling. At Always There Dental Care, we fabricate our crowns in-house with same-day crown technology. Through Cerec, we use CAD/CAM digital scanning technology instead of impression material to create a more comfortable appointment and a crown that fits perfectly.
Our doctors may determine that you need a tooth extraction for various reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
If you have teeth that appear too small, uneven, chipped, or have dark stains, porcelain veneers may be a good choice for you. Our doctors work with renowned ceramicists to deliver the correct color, translucency, and nuance to create a natural smile.
Oftentimes, patients will present with multiple issues that require treatment of the entire mouth to restore their bite to proper form and function. Our doctors are trained with industry leaders in this specific field. Using the best dental labs in the country and the latest techniques, we create a functional and aesthetically beautiful outcome.
Straight teeth are healthy teeth. Gone are the days of broken wires and flossing nightmares! Clear aligners are a proven way to achieve healthy tooth movement with easy brushing and flossing and without the unsightly appearance of metal brackets. We will customize your treatment plan and scan you digitally using our iTero; which provides better comfort to the patient and precise results.
Want to put the sparkle back in your smile? The Zoom! Whitening system is easy and non-invasive and is one of the best systems on the market today. After an examination and cleaning, we apply a water-based gel on your teeth and use the patented LED blue light to whiten them.
Root canal therapy can save a tooth that has become severely infected or decayed. A root canal can be performed in a single visit for most patients. Our pre-treatment preparation ensures that the tooth and the affected area are fully anesthetized for the entire procedure. In most cases, we recommend protecting the tooth with a porcelain crown to prevent fracture once the tooth is repaired.
