Prevention is everything
Small dental problems stay small with preventive care such as semi-annual exams, x-rays and cleanings. When Dr. Scott examines a patient’s mouth, he looks for:
l signs of decay and gum disease
l bite and alignment problems
l signs of oral cancer
l damage from bruxism (tooth grinding) and TMJ (jaw joint) dysfunction
The friendly hygienist removes harmful plaque and tartar and polishes tooth enamel to a shining finish. KIds often receive plastic sealants and fluoride treatments to protect teeth from decay.
Exams provide time to outline treatment plans and to discuss the patient’s aesthetic goals. Does he or she want whiter teeth? Should we replace that old filling with tooth-colored resin? Is snoring a sign of sleep apnea, and would a mouthguard help?
When dental problems arise, Dr. Scott’s experience and skill tackle the issues head on. Restorative dental services include:
l tooth-colored fillings for strong, beautiful repairs
l dental implants to replace missing teeth and preserve jaw bone
l porcelain crowns to strengthen tooth structure
l partial and full dentures
l fixed bridgework
l periodontal therapy to halt gum disease
l wisdom teeth extraction
l emergency services in the event of a tooth fracture or loss, severe toothache or injury to soft tissue
l dental sedation for anxiety-free treatment

l Empress and Velspath porcelain veneers to cover imperfections
