Our general dentistry services also include:
It is advised to visit our clinic once every six months for a dental cleaning and check-up to maintain your oral health and to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. We provide teeth cleaning services to remove plaque and tartar to help you prevent tooth decay or gum diseases. These services are important for children as well as adults and seniors.
If you’re missing a tooth due to issues such as decay or periodontal disease, you may be the right candidate for a dental implant. Dental implants act as tooth roots. Adding a crown on the implant will make it look and function like a real tooth. Please visit our dental clinic to learn if you can get dental implants.
Crowns are “caps” that cover the entire tooth surface or attached on an implant to restore the tooth’s original shape and size. This dental restoration can protect and strengthen a tooth’s structure in cases where a filling or other procedure cannot. Crowns are made from different materials such as porcelain, porcelain fused to metal and full metal. We will prescribe the crown that will work best for your condition.
Missing teeth can often cause problems with speech, facial structure and function. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth as it literally “bridges” the gap between your teeth. Implants or natural teeth usually support the bridge.
If the nerve of your tooth has begun to decay due to trauma or infection, a root canal therapy is required to save the tooth. Decaying materials such as the pulp inside the tooth, nerves and bacteria are removed to curb the infection and reduce your pain. We will fill the space with a special, medicated dental material that will restore the tooth to full function.
When your wisdom teeth cause infection, periodontal issues, and cavities, they will have to be extracted to maintain your oral health. Since extractions can be painful, we try to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Please consult with our team if you experience any discomfort due to your wisdom teeth and we’ll decide the best course of action for your well-being.
We provide custom mouthguards at Lai & Associates Dental Clinic. If you require a sports guard for your protection or a sleeping guard for bruxism or other issues, please visit our clinic. We’ll provide you with a mouth guard that’s a comfortable fit.
