Dental Exams

We offer Periodic Oral Evaluations which are used to determine any changes in the patient’s dental and medical health status. During the exam, the dentist will check for signs of decay, bone loss, health of gums, infection, loose teeth, and any other abnormalities. We recommend  cleanings and examinations every 6 months.

Composite Resin Fillings

Composite resins, better known as tooth (white) colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings. They can withstand moderate pressure form the constant stress of chewing. They have proven to hold up on either front or back teeth. They are a great choice for people who prefer their fillings to look more like their natural tooth.

CEREC Crowns

CEREC crowns are dental crowns that are all ceramic (metal free) crowns that are done in one appointment. We have invested in state of the art technology that gives us the ability to offer our patients to have their crown done in one easy appointment instead of three. CEREC works by taking a 3D image of your tooth and mining out a strong, metal free restoration. We will image, fabricate, mill and permanently place your crown in one singe visit, no second visit needed!

Dental Implants (Guided)

Dental implants are becoming more and more popular for replacing missing teeth. They are a long-term solution that is most like your natural teeth. Implants do not affect neighboring teeth like bridges do and are permanent unlike removable dentures are. Dental implants can last a life time if they are properly cared for. Dr. Lambert has been trained on implant placement. He has invested in technology that now offers guided implants, that leave you getting the best implant placement possible. We will first take a 3D image of your jaw, then Dr. Lambert places an implant virtually on the computer. This way we are able to place it in the thickest, healthiest bone, parallel to your surrounding teeth and how the crown will be best designed to fit in the missing space. After this we will make a guide out of acrylic to use during the implant surgery. Using the guide, the implant is placed perfectly as to the surgery plan.
If you are considering dental implants call us for a thorough evaluation to see if you are a candidate for dental implants!

Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. That’s because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth.
New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. Follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your dentist.
Even if you wear full dentures, you still have to practice good dental hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
Like your teeth, your dentures should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing also can help keep the teeth from staining. 
  • Rinse your dentures before brushing to remove any loose food or debris. 
  • Use a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser to gently brush all the surfaces of the dentures so they don’t get scratched. DO NOT USE TOOTHPASTE ON YOUR DENTURE.
  • When brushing, clean your mouth thoroughly—including your gums, cheeks, roof of your mouth and tongue to remove any plaque. This can help reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath. 
  • When you’re not wearing your dentures, put them in a safe place covered in water to keep them from warping.
  • Occasionally, denture wearers may use adhesives. Adhesives come in many forms: creams, powders, pads/wafers, strips or liquids. If you use one of these products, read the instructions, and use them exactly as directed. Your dentist can recommend appropriate cleansers and adhesives; look for products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Products with the ADA Seal have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness.
If you have any questions about your dentures, or if they stop fitting well or become damaged, contact your dentist. Be sure to schedule regular dental checkups, too. The dentist will examine your mouth to see if your dentures continue to fit properly.

Extractions

An extraction is to remove a tooth. Usually a tooth needs to be removed do to decease, trauma or crowding.

Sealants

Brushing and flossing are the best ways to help prevent cavities, but it’s not always easy to clean every nook and cranny of your teeth – especially those back teeth you use to chew (called molars). Molars are rough, uneven and a favorite place for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide.
 
Still, there’s another safety net to help keep those teeth clean. It’s called a sealant, and it is a thin, protective coating (made from plastic or other dental materials) that adheres to the chewing surface of your back teeth. They’re no substitute for brushing and flossing, but they can keep cavities from forming and may even stop early stages of decay from becoming a full-blown cavity.
 
In fact, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. This is especially important when it comes to your child’s dental health. In October 2016, the Centers for Disease Control released a report on the importance of sealants for school-aged children, of which only 43% of children ages 6-11 have. According to the CDC, “school-age children without sealants have almost three times more cavities than children with sealants.”
 
You may have many questions about sealants, and we have answers for you below. Read on to learn more about sealing out tooth decay.

Root Canal

A root canal treatment is a dental procedure to remove inflamed or infected pulp on the inside of the tooth which is then carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth.

Veneers

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to change your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Bridges

A dental bridge is used to bridge the gap between two healthy teeth where one or more teeth are missing. In most cases, a dental crown is placed on the healthy teeth on each side of the gap to support the bridge in between them. These teeth are known as anchor teeth or abutment teeth. The bridge essentially creates a false tooth, known as a pontic. The pontic may be constructed from various materials such as gold, alloys, porcelain or a mixture of these materials.

Inlays & Onlays

An inlay refers to a filling that usually consists of gold, porcelain, or resin that is used to treat a cavity. An inlay is larger than a filling while being smaller than a crown. The difference between an inlay and a filling is that an inlay lies within the cusps on the chewing portion of the tooth. This procedure includes an impression of the tooth and creation of the restoration piece outside of the mouth. This procedure is effective for those who have extensive decays or fractures within the teeth that cannot be fixed by an intracoronal restoration.

An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that an onlay is specifically targeted towards replacing a tooth cusp. This procedure utilizes crowns in order to cover the surface of the tooth. This procedure is effective in conserving the tooth structure and will completely eliminate the cusps and walls of the tooth within the crown.
