Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic or full mouth x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of decay between the posterior teeth.
We will work with an implant specialist to restore an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or placement of a removable appliance.
We provide several options for teeth whitening. We recently purchased a ZOOM! WhiteSpeed bleaching system. Other services are in the form of a take home procedure. All studies have show this method to be safe and as effective as the in office bleaching system which are usually more expensive. With both our in-office and take-home systems you will be able to do touch-up procedures on your own schedule at home for years to come at minimal expense.
Dr. Jackie Owens is a certified Invisalign provider. Invisalign is an orthodontic technique which utilizes a series of clear, removable, virtually invisible retainers to straighten teeth. While Invisalign can not solve all orthodontic problems, it can solve many. Ask us if Invisalign is right for you.
Crowns and Veneers
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns or veneers on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use a wide range of materials from porcelain fused to high noble metal and all ceramic.
Light cured tooth colored resin fillings to match your teeth. We no long use silver colored amalgam restorations.
We perform root canals on anterior and premolar teeth. We also do some molar teeth. For more complex root canals or some emergency situations, we may refer to and endodontist or root canal specialist.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment may include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a night guard will help reduce the wear on your teeth and may reduce or eliminate the symptoms of TMJ discomfort. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you, when implants or implant retained prostheses are not an option.
