Six Month Cleanings: Schedule an appointment with our dentists for your routine six month cleaning. During that visit, we will examine your teeth and mouth visually and may order x-rays if a tooth appears to be problematic or if your teeth have not been x-rayed in some time.
The hygienist will remove the tartar build-up from your teeth and particularly your gum line, an activity that will help build healthy gums and teeth. The hygienist or dentist may measure the “pockets” in your teeth to check how much your gums are receding or how inflamed they are. This measurement is partly how they always know how much you have been flossing.
At the appointment with the hygienist, it is your ideal time to talk about your brushing and flossing routine. He or she can help you develop a better routine for flossing and brushing and can answer your questions about devices such as water picks and electric tooth brushes.

It happens to everyone at one point or another. A tooth becomes decayed and the decayed portion needs to be removed and replaced with a filling. The filling helps keep the decay from spreading through the tooth so that it will stay stronger for a much longer time. In some cases the decayed area is large and the tooth will need a crown, but a filling is far more common. Depending on the placement of the filling, the filling material itself may appear metallic or may match your tooth color
A tooth may lose enough of its top structure, over time, it weakens and needs to be replaced with a crown. The crown replaces the top portion of the tooth that appears above the gum line. The crown will look and feel just like a regular tooth. On occasion, the root of the tooth itself may become unhealthy and may need a root canal. In this case, the top of the tooth is replaced by a crown as well.
Root canal work can be fairly extensive. If you are concerned about being able to sit in a dental chair for three hours or so and particularly if you have anxiety when it comes to dental work, you may ask us for sedation dentist options, particularly prescription medication that may help you relax and make it through the procedure.
