dental bridges
Many individuals suffer the loss of their teeth as the consequence of dental injury, tooth decay, gum disease, or other causes. Sadly, a space between teeth is not just a supreficial predicament: it can have an effect how you articulate your words, the capability of eating, how your jaws line up and even the appearance of your face. Residual teeth frequently move into the spaces of the absent teeth, having an impact on your bite and possibly fostering gum disease and TMJ.

dental crowns
Dental crowns or "caps" are placed over weak or damaged teeth to help protect them from further harm and improve their appearance. In most cases, a crown will follow a root canal procedure to help protect the tooth. Crowns are typically completed in two visits, and a temporary crown will be put into place while your permanent crown is being fabricated. Crowns are strong and durable, and they cover and protect your tooth. There are several types of crowns, and Dr. Welch can help you determine the best option for you.

gum disease
Gum disease (periodontal disease) is a bacterial infection that can be easily treated if identified at its early stages. Gum disease can be caused by an excessive build up of plaque, transformation of metabolism or hormone levels, or health issues (such as diabetes or kidney conditions). If left untreated, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Continual bad breath, teeth that are loose teeth, inflamed or tender gums, or bleeding gums are symptoms of gum disease. Please let us know if you are having any of these issues when you come in for your regular visits.

dental implants
Dental implants are one of the single most effective ways to rectify missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that compensate for tooth loss. Implants have a favorable outcome of more than a 90%, and the outcome is permanent. Successfulness include gums that are in good physical condition and a suitable bone structure to brace the implant. Missing teeth can cause problems with eating, bone loss and tooth alignment, and may even make many patients feel self-conscious when smiling or speaking. Implants are one option for patients looking to correct their tooth loss.

Many adults and teens have over- or under-bites, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, or other tooth alignment issues that can result in tooth decay, TMJ, and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign is a convenient, effective system for correcting tooth alignment with no unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces.

oral cancer screening
During every routine dental checkup, we will perform a thorough oral cancer screening. Not only are mouth, throat, and head cancers revealed in your oral health—so are leukemia and other health issues, which cause changes in the soft tissues, gums, and bones of the mouth. Early detection increases the amount of treatment alternatives and increases the probability of recovery. Particularly if you smoke, chew tobacco, frequently drink alcohol, or have had oral cancer in the past, keeping an eye on your oral health is a great idea.

preventive care
During your regular cleaning appointments for preventive care (we suggest having a cleaning every six months), we make it our prime concern to help you maintain the best possible dental health. As well as a thorough inspection by Dr. Scott Welch, our dental hygienists conduct preventive dentistry procedures, meticulously cleaning your teeth and gums in order to avoid cavities and other oral health problems. During regular cleanings and checkups, we concentrate on inspecting your mouth for signs of gum disease (periodontal disease), cavities, and bite issues.

root canals
When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or diseased, it is important to remove the infected tissue from the interior of the tooth in order to avoid permanent tooth removal. During a root canal, diseased root tissue is removed, the area is cleaned and the tissue is replaced with an antibacterial filling. It is highly recommended that the tooth is then capped or crowned for protection. Root canal therapy saves an average of 17 million teeth each year.

tmj jaw pain
If you're encountering jaw popping/clicking, pain in the head and face, and trouble with biting, as well as earaches and jaw stiffness, you may be experiencing Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome. TMJ is typically caused by jaw trauma, repetitious jaw clenching and grinding the teeth, or misalignment of the teeth.  Many TMJ instances are short-term if you relax your jaw, giving it a moment to heal.  Although, occurences that last more than a few weeks, you may require a custom molded mouthguard or — worst case scenario — surgery to relieve unpleasant TMJ symptoms.

tooth veneers
We help patients improve their smiles by offering the option of veneers to help change the look of discolored, broken, crooked or otherwise unappealing teeth. A veneer is a thin coat of porcelain that is bonded to the teeth to help improve color or shape. A patient's teeth are contoured and an impression of the teeth is made. Next, the veneers are tested and bonded into place. Not only are veneers esthetically pleasing, but they can also provide protection to the tooth's surface. Veneers can greatly improve the appearance of teeth and give patients the confidence to smile again.
