We’ve Got You Covered!
Whether you are an established patient or new to our practice we make every attempt to address your immediate needs and emergent care in a timely manner even if it is after hours never hesitate to call if a concern or emergency arises.
Preventative and Maintenance Care
Prevention truly is the best medicine periodic professional cleanings and exams can catch problems early on and decrease the need for expensive time consuming treatment.
Digital Radiography (xrays)
Digital xrays are a way to diagnosis issues not seen on clinical exam, they emit very low radiation and are safe and effective for patients of all ages. Xrays are stored on a digital server and can be viewed by the patient and the dentist on our computer screens allowing us to fully explain and point out why we are making the recommendation we make.
A small camera can be placed in the mouth and pictures taken of individual teeth allowing us to, once again, provide you with all the information needed to make an informed decision on what treatment is needed.
Restorative Care (fillings)
Amalgam and Composite Fillings. Depending on your needs amalgam or composite fillings or a combination may be recommended always ask about the differences and the pros and cons of each depending on your case because it is never a one size fits all scenario.
Pediatric Dental Care
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommend bringing your child in to the dentist when the first teeth are visible. This simply allows for your child to become comfortable at the dentist and allows us to answer questions and provide professional recommendations to optimize good at home oral health practices and prevent future dental needs. At age 3 or 4 preventative care like cleanings and xrays can begin and completed and any restorative needs we may find.
Periodontal disease is the loss of attachment of the gum tissue and supporting bone around the teeth creating “deep gum pockets” and is one of the primary reasons teeth are lost besides tooth decay. Deep Cleanings (scaling and root planning) may be recommended as initial treatment and more frequent recall visits for maintenance may be advised this can halt the progression of disease and help maintain your teeth for a lifetime. In more advanced cases referrals may be made to a specialist for initial care.
Crowns – If a tooth has been significantly weakened by the presence of a large restoration, suspected crack or esthetically compromised crowns may be an excellent treatment option to restore the tooth to optimal function and prevent premature loss of the tooth from fracture.
Bridges – If a tooth has been lost a bridge may be a great option to fill the space and restore your dental arch, increase chewing capacity and prevent shifting and movement of adjacent teeth.
Removable Prosthetics – Dentures and partial dentures can be optimal and economical plan if multiple or all teeth are missing to restore the mouth to more adequate function and esthetics.
Root Canals – If the nerve of the tooth has been damaged due to large cavities or trauma a root canal may be needed to save the tooth. The procedure simply consists of taking small instruments to clean out and disinfect the inside of the tooth. Contrary to popular belief these procedures can be completed without discomfort and finished in 1 to 2 appointments depending on the case.
Tooth Extractions – If it is determined that the tooth cannot be saved, or the patient does not wish to save the tooth, extraction may be recommended.
Wisdom Teeth – At Roth Dental patients have the option to remain in office for their wisdom teeth extractions. When the mouth is not large enough to accommodate the normal eruption of third molars (wisdom teeth), complications such as infections, cyst formation and damage to adjacent teeth can occur later in life. Wisdom tooth removal prevents these complications and is typically recommended to be completed by late teens to early twenties, due to the difficulty of removal later in life. When treated early, many complications are significantly diminished. It is important to discuss all treatment benefits, risks, and possible complications with the dentist in order to make an educated and informed decision.
IV Moderate Sedation – Intravenous sedation is offered in office for more complex surgical needs like wisdom teeth or implant placement.
Implants – Whether a single missing tooth needs replaced or a full denture needs help remaining in place, implant therapy is quickly becoming the standard of care in the dental field. It prevents the need to grind down adjacent teeth for a bridge and functions most closely to a natural tooth. It is necessary to get a comprehensive work up to determine if implant therapy can be considered. At this time implant therapy will not be completed in office, but by closely working with specialists our patients can get the treatment they desire.
If a smile is of esthetic concern to a patient there are many conservative approaches that can be taken to give it new life.
Bonding – From closing gaps between the front teeth to removing unsightly stains or discolorations, bonding with composite resin can usually be done with minimal or no removal of existing tooth structure.
Veneers – Veneers are a thin porcelain shell that cover the visible part of the front teeth to idealize their shape, size, and color. They can be a conservative option requiring minimal removal of existing tooth structure.
Whitening – Sometimes the only thing needed is bleaching to achieve esthetic goals. Quality over the counter products like whitening strips may be the answer, or custom made trays with prescription bleaching products can be recommended. Simply ask if bleaching is a good option.
Our patients are assured of consistent, reliable and professional cares.
