We offer phase one periodontal treatment and maintenance. We have a long term working relationship with local specialists to make referrals when indicated.
Periodontal disease are infections that affect the tissues and bone that support teeth. As the tissues are damaged, the sulcus develops into a pocket that is greater than three millimeters. Generally, the more severe the disease, the greater the pocket and bone loss. The enlarged pockets allow harmful bacteria to grow and make it difficult to practice effective oral hygiene. Left untreated, periodontal diseases may eventually lead to tooth loss.
Most root canals can be performed in our office in one visit due to advances in techniques.
Natural teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Even if one of your teeth becomes injured or decayed, it can often be saved through a specialized dental procedure known as a root canal (endodontic) treatment. To help you understand when and why you might need this procedure and how a damaged tooth can be saved, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions about endodontic treatment. Check out our FAQ page.
Children are welcomed to our office and enjoy live video examinations and portraits. Sealants are often suggested to reduce decay in permanent teeth; orthodontic therapy is referred to local specialists.
People usually think of a newborn baby as having no teeth. But the 20 primary teeth that will erupt in the next two and a half years are already present at birth in the baby’s jawbones.
Primary teeth are just as important as permanent teeth – for chewing, speaking, and appearance. In addition, the primary teeth hold the space in the jaws for the permanent teeth. Both primary and permanent teeth help give the face its shape and form.
Dental implants have become the preferred choice for tooth replacement. We work with a team of specialists in order to create restorations that are esthetic, functional and comfortable.
A dental implant feels and looks like your own lost tooth. Here’s how it works. A specialist inserts a metal post beneath your gum. It fuses to bone in your jaw and acts like the root of a tooth. Then Dr Deenihan mounts a replacement tooth on the implant, where it’s most likely to blend in with the way your own teeth look and feel.
Most patients find that an implant is secure and stable – a good replacement for their own tooth. Implants, however are not an option for everyone. Because implants require surgery, patients should be in good health and have healthy gums. Further the patient either must have adequate bone to support the implant, or be a good candidate for surgery to build up the area requiring the implant. Patients also should be committed to very thorough oral hygiene every day, and regular dental visits. If you are considering implants, a full evaluation by your dentist will determine if you would be a good candidate.
