Cleaning & Checkups
Cleaning and Check ups: Regular dental exams are an important part of preventive health care. During a dental exam, the hygienist will clean your teeth and identify gum inflammation or bone loss. The dentist and hygienist will evaluate your risk of developing tooth decay and other oral health problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. A dental exam might also include dental X-rays or other diagnostic procedures.
Implant restoration: (use picture from Root Canal) Dental implants are titanium posts, which are the equivalent of the root of the natural tooth. Implants are very successful and have been utilized to replace missing teeth for at least forty years. Implants are the state of the art for the replacement of missing teeth. Implants are more conservative treatment option compared to conventional crown and bridge treatment. Implants can be used to replace one tooth or many missing teeth. Implant treatment can also greatly enhance the stability of complete dentures.

Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and filled. This procedure seals off the root canal. Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment saves many teeth that would otherwise be lost.
When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis” (which means “inflammation around the tooth.”) In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form “pockets” that are infected. To prevent this, gum therapy called scaling and root planning may be prescribed along with regular periodontal cleaning.
Drs. Cornish and Bowers create brilliant, natural-looking and high functioning smiles using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers do more than change smiles; they change lives. Veneer patients often comment on improvement to their self-confidence and emotional well-being as well as better ability to care and maintain teeth.
