Regular dental visits are important because your oral health greatly influences the health of your body as a whole. Routine cleanings are recommended every 6 months. These cleanings remove the tenacious build up of plaque that can only be removed by a trained dental hygienist. Regular dental visits and cleanings are followed by a comprehensive exam by the doctor to assess your dental needs.

Crowns are needed when the tooth integrity is compromised by a large cavity, crack or substantial fracture. A crown is a restoration that covers the existing tooth and prevents further damage that would otherwise result in the loss of the tooth.
Gold restorations are the “gold standard” in dentistry. In many cases, when a tooth is cracked or fractured, the tooth can be restored with gold. Gold inlay/onlays are a more conservative restoration than crowns.
Root canals are needed when the root of a tooth is inflamed or infected. Root canal treatment involves removing the nerve inside the roots and riding the tooth of infection. Since root canals often cause the tooth to become brittle, and fractures more likely, it is recommended that a dental crown be placed over the tooth.
In the case of a missing tooth, a dental implant may be placed. Implants are a dental crown attached to a titanium post that is then placed at the site of a missing tooth. This provides a prosthetic that functions as the missing tooth. The placement of an implant can prevent bone lose and tooth movement of adjacent teeth.

In some cases, teeth are beyond the ability of restoration and therefore must be removed. Removal is performed in order to prevent future pain and infection.
Sometimes patients do not like the appearance and shape of their teeth. A veneer is a porcelain material adhered to the front surface of the tooth. It provides an aesthetically appealing shape and shade to the tooth.
A bridge is a prosthetic tooth held in place by teeth next to the open space. When a tooth is missing and adjacent teeth are candidates for crowns, a dental bridge can be placed.
