PROFESSIONAL HYGIENE CLEANING
We encourage regular checkups for individuals age two and up. Regular checkups are important to:
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, Dr Walker will check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue, and will check your existing fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
Regular checkup appointments typically take about an hour. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and we ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
CROWNS & BRIDGES
A filling really only repairs a small hole. To rebuild, reshape, or protect a substantial part of your tooth, a filling just won’t do the job, and a crown is preferred. A crown is also called a cap. Sometimes, a filling is not sufficient for long-term strength, yet there is quite a bit of healthy tooth. In this instance, a partial crown or inlay is appropriate. A bridge is constructed to replace a missing tooth and is made of crowns that are invisibly joined together.
We believe that new dentures not only improve smiles, but more importantly, they improve lives. Not only will you be more confident in your appearance, but you will eat better, and that can have a very positive impact on your overall health. Our goal is to provide you with a denture, crafted to your personal treatment needs, at an affordable fee.
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
