PAYING FOR YOUR DENTAL CARE
We pride ourselves on being able to provide each and every patient with dental services to achieve their individual needs and goals. We want our patients to understand that their oral health and personal well-being comes first. Because of this, our dental office offers flexible payment solutions as well as CareCredit that makes it as easy as possible for you to afford the dental procedures not covered by your dental insurance. Most patients are amazed just how affordable a new smile can be.
New patients receive a comprehensive examination which includes a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, blood pressure, and systemic disorders. A routine oral exam is performed on established patients to determine any changes in dental and health status since the previous visit.
Your gum tissue is measured with a fine instrument ruler to calibrate in millimeters pocket depth between the tooth and the connective gum tissue around the tooth. Pocket depths more than 4 millimeters, could indicate disease and infection. The deeper the pocket, the greater the extent plaque bacteria collects and infection in gum disease develop.
X-rays are taken as needed.
Tooth scaling and root planing occur as needed.
Routine cleanings also include a professional polishing (Prophy) that removes only the soft sticky plaque that is above the gum line.
