Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants will fuse to the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth`s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage.
Facilities and Equipment
At Dove Canyon Dental, our services are designed to make you feel relaxed and at ease during your visit with us. We use the latest technology backed by our extensive continuing education training to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
State-of-the-Art Sterilization Procedures
At Dove Canyon Dental your health and comfort are always our primary concern; therefore, we follow the guidelines of both the Center for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health. Our staff also continually reviews updates on infection control materials and techniques. After each patient's visit, the treatment area is thoroughly disinfected and disposable barriers are changed. We ultrasonically clean and heat sterilize all non-disposable instruments using an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam under pressure. We also use an independent commercial monitoring service to insure proper maintenance of sterilizing equipment.
In addition to x-rays, intra-oral cameras can be used as part of our examination; it provides magnified detail of conditions not visible with the naked eye. Intra-oral cameras are instrumental for documenting a patient's existing conditions. These images are then used to help educate patients on needed treatments and general hygiene issues.
For those patients who are extremely anxious about dental treatment we offer nitrous oxide analgesia.. It has a calming effect, relieves anxiety and makes the experience enjoyable. There are no lasting effects from the nitrous; within minutes after coming off the gas, all your senses return to normal.
We can also offer oral sedation for the extremely nervous patient through the use of Benzodiazapine medication such as; Valium and Halcion. Some patients may even require "deep sedation" with these drugs, or through IV sedation, where the patient can "sleep." Some of these sedation techniques would require an anesthesiologist who can be scheduled to come to the office for an additional fee. Any patients considering sedation need a pre-op consult and a driver before and after their appointments.
Our office also offers massage chairs in all of our operatories so you will feel more relaxed during your appointments. For your convenience we also offer headphones for TV, or CD's if desired.
