At your first visit, upon review of your medical history and medications, x-rays of your teeth will be taken.  One of our Registered Dental Hygienists will then perform, if indicated, a Dental Prophylaxis (Cleaning).  This will be followed by an examination of your x-rays as well as your teeth and oral cavity by Dr. Hussain.  We check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and/or periodontal disease.  We discuss treatment plans for you, including replacement of any missing teeth.  This office is geared towards prevention of dental problems with an emphasis on home care by the patient.

Dental Cleaning (Prophylaxis)

Performed by our Registered Dental Hygienists, Dental Cleanings consist of:

 

  • Removal of Calculus (Tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

  • Removal of Plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease.

  • Teeth polishing: Removing of stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)

Scaling and root planing are non-surgical procedures directed at removing the cause of gingival inflammation. This is accomplished by cleaning the dental surfaces below the gums often with the use of local anesthesia. These procedures work best in patients who are suffering from inflammatory gum diseases such as gingivitis and mild to severe chronic periodontitis.  Many times, insurance can cover regular 3 month cleanings after the procedure is performed.

Tooth Extraction 

(Removal)

Often times due to severe decay, root fracture, or lack of periodontal support, there is no alternative for a tooth other than extraction.  Teeth that can be removed in this office will be done under local anesthesia.  Every effort will be made to make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.  More difficult cases will be referred to an Oral Surgeon.

Sealants 

Special sealants can be used to cover permanent molars and/or premolars to protect hard-to-reach places where bacteria may gather. Sealants are generally placed on permanent teeth in patients under 16 years of age.  With proper home care and dental cleaning visits, sealants can greatly reduce the risk of dental caries (cavities).

Fillings 

(Restorations)

To treat a cavity (decay) in a tooth, Dr. Hussain will remove the diseased area of the tooth and use white fillings to replace the area of the tooth that has been lost. Fillings can also be used to repair cracks or broken teeth that have been worn down. This type of restorative dentistry will withstand chewing and should last for many years without the need to be replaced.

Crowns and Bridges

Porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns are a suitable restoration to cement to a tooth where a large filling wears out, when a tooth is fractured, or to enhance the tooth’s overall appearance. The function of a crown is to provide protection for any tooth that has become too frail from decay to take on a filling or that has a crack in it.  It is often used to permanently restore a tooth that has undergone a Root Canal.

The crown restores a tooth to its normal shape and size while supporting it. This prevents the weakened tooth from disintegrating which could cause you to lose your tooth.

We can also make use of crowns to attach dental bridges to the strong teeth on either side of a lost tooth (or teeth). We can match the color of the crowns with the natural color of your teeth so the fact that you received dental work is easily not noticeable.

Partial or Full Dentures

If you have several missing teeth on either side of your mouth, partial dentures are a cost-effective way to replace missing if implants or fixed bridges are not an option. Many patients have been pleased with the technology available that allows us to create partial dentures or complete dentures. These removable dentures fill in your smile gaps and can be taken out to clean at night. They are well-suited to patients who want an affordable, fast and personalized way to solve the issue of missing teeth.  

Implants

Implants to replace missing teeth are an outstanding option for patients that want to replace a tooth or teeth without the hassle of a removable appliance or the drawback or grinding down adjacent often healthy teeth for a fixed bridge.  If you are a candidate for implants, through thorough consultation and review of x-rays, you will be referred to an Oral Surgeon who will consult with you and ultimately place the implant(s).  The implant will be permanently restored by Dr. Hussain in consultation with the Oral Surgeon.

Imran R.

Visited this great office for the first time and had a phenomenal experience. Throughout my life, I had fears of visiting the dentist as I had bad experiences in the past. This was the first time ever where everything went smoothly. Dr. Hussain and his staff were super friendly and kind. The best part was the cleaning they did was painless and efficient. I highly recommend this practice to everyone.
