Exams & Cleanings
Routine checkups and cleanings are vital for avoiding common problems with teeth. In some cases, issues such as cavities may arise without the patient knowing, so checkups are an excellent way of counteracting problems before they do more damage.
During each examination, our general dentist will assess the health of the patient’s teeth and mouth with these steps:
- Inspecting mouth and gums for diseases and infections
- Asking about dental hygiene habits
- Looking for signs of tooth decay
Afterward, we will recommend the appropriate dental procedures to combat any discovered issues and conduct a general cleaning.
At Oro Valley Dental Group, we use fillings that perfectly match the color of the patient’s teeth. These dental fillings are a mixture of plastic and ceramic compounds designed to provide excellent strength and to mimic the look of natural teeth.
We use both types of filling – direct and indirect – depending on the patient’s case. Direct filling is the quicker procedure, as it involves placing a filling directly into a prepared cavity in one visit. Indirect fillings can take two or more sessions, and we can recommend several options, including veneers and inlays.
Dental crowns are “caps” implanted on existing teeth, and they typically cover the area found above the gum line. We make our crowns from porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two. Most patients prefer using porcelain because it is durable, and it blends well with the tooth’s natural appearance.
Dental crowns can help repair, strengthen, and preserve natural teeth while enhancing their overall appearance. In most cases, we use dental crowns to protect broken, worn, or impacted teeth, but we can apply crowns for purely cosmetic purposes, as well.
We start the procedure by obtaining a tooth impression from the patient, and we use the impression to examine the patient’s natural bite and jaw movements. Afterward, our dental technician will sculpt a crown that is perfectly compatible with the existing tooth. We take great care to ensure that moving the jaw and mouth remains comfortable after the patient completes the crown treatment.
If you think you have a weak tooth that can benefit from a dental crown, contact us to discuss your options.
As their name suggests, dental bridges “bridge” the gap between existing teeth. We use bridges – usually made from porcelain – to replace missing teeth, which helps reduce the stress on the patient’s bite and helps maintain the original shape of the face.
