Dental ImplantsAfter dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take at easy for 48-72 hours. Resting assists the healing process and limits after surgery bleeding. Drink plenty of fluids, but nothing too cold. You may need to apply an ice pack to your face in twenty-minute intervals for the 2 days following surgery. If you received upper implants, do not blow your nose for two weeks. It is common to experience slight bleeding for about two days after surgery. You will feel slightly uncomfortable the first two days following surgery, but the third day is generally better. An increase in temperature of about 1 to 2 degrees is to be expected and is not a cause for concern. Finally, while you can eat when you are hungry, do not chew directly onto the bone graft.
BridgesAnother tooth replacement option is a fixed bridge (sometimes called a fixed partial denture). This is a restoration that replaces or spans the space where one or more teeth have been lost. A fixed bridge is bonded or cemented into place – only a dentist can remove it.
Restorative DentistryAppearance is a concern for every dental patient. Why should other people see your fillings? However for the team at DDS biocompatibility and durability are also concerns. We want you to have natural-looking results that are also long-lasting and healthy. That’s why we’re experts in Restorative Dentistry—the process of restoring your smile to a natural look while providing a filling that is durable and safe.
Resin CompositeWe use only tooth-colored composite resin filling materials in our office. We can remove old silver fillings (amalgams) and in many cases, replace them with tooth-colored fillings that are much more esthetic, and bond the tooth together, rather than pushing it apart, like old silver fillings do. We use only the best composite resin filling materials to produce very stable, long-lasting cosmetic fillings.
VeneersOur dentists can also improve your smile cosmetically with laminate veneers. Porcelain laminate veneers are thin pieces of specially shaped porcelain that are bonded to the front and sides of prepared teeth. Using this technique, teeth that are mis-shapen, very darkly colored, or slightly crowded can be corrected with stable, long-term results. Porcelain laminate veneers are made by a laboratory and therefore requires two appointments, one to prepare the teeth and take an impression, and a second appointment to apply the veneers to the teeth.
CrownsA crown is a dental restoration that covers the whole visible surface of a tooth which cannot be repaired with filling material. The tooth may be cracked, broken, or have a large area of decay. The crown, made of porcelain fused to a metal core for strength, or of all porcelain for a front tooth, is a way to actually conserve the vital portion of the tooth below the gum line. In many cases, we can use CEREC technology to make your new tooth at our office. There is no need for a temporary crown or a return appointment. Your permanent crown is cemented into place in one visit.
Root Canal TreatmentRoot canal therapy treats disorders of the nerve (pulp) of the tooth. It used to be that a tooth with a diseased or infected nerve had to be removed. However, in 95% of these cases today, this is no longer true.
DenturesThere are a few steps that patients need to take prior to anesthesia. First, you should not eat or drink anything at least 8 hours prior to surgery and refrain from smoking 12 hours prior to surgery. You will need someone to accompany you to the surgery and drive you home after. On the day of surgery, do not wear any jewelry, contact lenses, or dentures. If you regularly take medications, discuss those with the doctor to ensure that they are approved prior to surgery. Other than these simple considerations, there is nothing else you need to do to prepare for surgery.
Tooth WhiteningTeeth whitening – also called bleaching – is a procedure that brightens teeth that are discolored, stained, or have been darkened because of injury. There are various ways to bleach teeth. We feel that tray bleaching is the most effective, although we also offer in-office bleaching techniques.
Teeth CleaningPeriodontal Disease is a chronic condition that needs immediate attention. Through a series of Periodontal Cleanings, Root Planing & Scaling, Laser Therapy and Local Antibiotics, this condition can be controlled. Periodontal Surgery is only necessary for severe cases.
Oral Cancer ScreeningAfter your history is taken, we will examine your teeth. Your dentist looks for cavities, assesses the condition of any fillings or crowns you have, and charts your existing conditions in our computer. Your dentist will also evaluate your gums to find out if you have any gum (or periodontal) disease. Your dentist may also perform an oral cancer screening.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral SurgeryIt is important to follow instructions after you have oral surgery to ensure proper healing and to avoid complications. As a rule of thumb, you should always wait two hours after surgery before eating to let the anesthesia wear off. Trying to eat before this could result in soft tissue damage because you are not able to feel all of your mouth. The instructions found below are guidelines. After your surgery the doctor or dental assistant will give you full instructions on how to properly recover from surgery.
Tooth ExtractionsExtractions can be performed under local anesthesia. Your DDS dentist can discuss what types of anesthesia and pain or anxiety-reducing medication are available and suitable for you. A general dentist can perform basic tooth extractions. However, if your DDS dentist anticipates a need for any special care, you may be referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon – a dentist who specializes in dental surgery including the removal of impacted teeth.
