BracesTraditional braces use metal brackets that are bonded to your teeth with a wire that helps to move your teeth into the correct position.
Invisalign OrthodonticsInvisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners (retainers) that move your teeth over time. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks and only removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Consult your dentist to determine if you are a candidate.
Dental ImplantsDespite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss – mostly due to tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But today dental implants are becoming the standard of care.
BridgesIf you maintain optimal oral hygiene care, you can expect your fixed bridge to last as many as 8-10 years, or even longer.
Resin CompositeTeeth can be filled with gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or glass materials called composite resin fillings. The location and extent of the decay, cost of filling material, insurance coverage, and your dentist’s recommendation help determine the type of filling that will best address your needs.
VeneersPorcelain veneers are created in a dental laboratory from a mold that is taken after the teeth have been prepared. A second appointment is required for placement of the porcelain veneers.
CrownsA crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, covers a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving its appearance. A crown may be recommended to cover and support a tooth with a large filling. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that is already broken.
Root Canal TreatmentA root canal is a treatment used to save a tooth that is badly decayed and/or becomes infected. Nerve and pulp, the soft area within the center of the tooth, can become irritated, inflamed, and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma to the face. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
DenturesA denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position, similar to a bridge. Complete dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional denture is placed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are removed to allow for proper healing, whereas an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are removed.

Space MaintainersTo prevent this, space maintainers are placed to hold the spot left by the missing tooth. This could be a band or temporary crown attached to one of the adjacent teeth. Later, as the permanent tooth grows into the spot, the space maintainer is removed.
Teeth CleaningMy first experience at Mountain Dental was fantastic. I had a very complete examination and x-rays taken that exposed an abnormality and was sent for a referral and was seen the same day by a specialist. I went back for a dental cleaning the following week and again received a very good cleaning! Thank you Mountain Dental for a job well done!
Fluoride TreatmentFluoride can be an important part of preventing tooth decay in patients of all ages. During your visit, we will determine your risk for dental decay by discussing your diet, home care, previous decay history, dry mouth and prescription medications. Fluoride treatment can be done...
Dental SealantsSealants are a plastic resin material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth—premolars and molars. They act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids that contribute to dental decay. Toothbrush bristles cannot reach into the deep depressions and grooves of teeth and the sealant helps to protect these areas.
Oral Cancer ScreeningOral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. Mountain Dental offices provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular dental exam.
Dental ExaminationPeople often respond to bleeding gums with the wrong method of treatment. Usually, gums that bleed are a symptom of the onset of periodontal disease or gingivitis. But often, people stop brushing frequently and effectively because it may be painful or it may cause the gums to bleed again. Instead, when gums are inflamed, brushing often and effectively is imperative. More importantly, you should see your dentist to have a periodontal screening and recording performed in order to determine the level of disease present and the best treatment course to pursue.

Tooth ExtractionsYou probably know that George Washington didn’t really have wooden dentures. They were actually made from elephant ivory and hippopotamus tusk – we’ve come a long way. But did you know the first president performed his own teeth extractions? Ouch. Do not try that at home.
