We never know when an emergency can happen.

Rest assured that we will be there for your care. One of the rules we have is to always take care of our patients during times of pain.

Invisalign

Invisalign

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening your teeth, using clear aligners made specifically you and only you.

These aligners are made of clear plastic and are virtually invisible. The aligners gently move your teeth to the predetermined position decided by the patient and the dentist before treatment is started. There are no longer metal bracket or tightening of wires. You simply in a new set of aligner approximately every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted.

Not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign. Dr. Le uses invisalign for cosmetic cases where your bite requires minimal changes. More complex cases may still require treatment with conventional braces. Call our office and Dr. Le will be happy to give you a free invisalign consultation and let you know if invisalign is right for you. Dr. Le is a certified Invisalign provider.

Dental Extractions

Our goal is always to keep your teeth for as long as possible. But when extraction is the chosen option be assured that you will have them done as painlessly, safely and efficiently possible.

Crowns and Bridges

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection.

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in – and the ones least needed for good oral health.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Bonding

For various reasons Porcelain veneers may not be the first choice for the cosmetic needs of every patient. We are able to acheive a similar effect using composite(white filling) bonded veneers. There are pros and cons of using composite veneers as opposed to porcelain veneers.
Dental-implants

Single Tooth Implant

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by your dentist. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Implant retained fixed prosthesis

A fixed prosthesis offers benefits from both a functional and esthetic point of view and may be regarded as quite similar to a patient’s own natural dentition when compared to alternative treatment options such as complete dentures or implant over dentures.

There is a significantly reduced bulk to a fixed prosthesis which is perceived to be more comfortable and since no mucosal support is needed, patients can chew with greater force and eat a wider range of foods. Fixed prostheses lead to a gain of posterior mandibular bone because of the adaptation to higher chewing forces whereas hinging overdentures lead to bone loss in the posterior regions.

Patients report enhanced social confidence as a result and reported quality of life satisfaction scores are highest with a fixed implant prosthesis. With all fixed prostheses, the contour should be carefully shaped in order to allow for oral hygiene access as these prostheses cannot be removed by the patient for cleaning.

When a fixed prosthesis is close to the oral mucosa, the prosthesis’ surface should be smooth and highly polished.

Implant Retained Dentures

Dental implants (2-6) can be placed followed by zest abutments which fit directly with female anchors embedded in your denture. This allows for significant increase in the denture retention. Some patients report being able to each things such as apples that they have never been able to eat for years.

There is an advantage in cleanability compared to a fixed implant retained full arch restoration as the denture can be removed and the implants can be cleaned daily.

Periodontal Care

Gum Disease

Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. At each regular checkup the dentist will measure the depth of the shallow v-shaped crevice (called a sulcus) between your tooth and gums to identify whether you have gum disease.

Gingivitis

In the early stage of gum disease, called gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen, and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated by daily brushing and flossing.

Periodontitis

In the more advanced stages of gum disease, called periodontitis, the gums and bone that support the teeth become seriously damaged. Whereas healthy gums and bone anchor teeth firmly in place, infected gums can cause teeth to become loose, fall out, or have to be removed by a dentist.

Sealants
A sealant is a clear or white, acrylic-like material that bonds with the tooth to help a shield out decay-causing bacteria from the chewing surfacing of the back teeth. They form a protective barrier covering the pits and fissures (depressions and grooves) to prevent cavities in hard to clean back teeth.

Custom Mouthguards

Custom sports guards are made out of a strong plastic material that is molded over top of models made from your teeth. We highly recommend getting a sportguard if you are playing a high impact contact sport.

Bruxism Appliances

Parafunctional activity (grinding and clenching of teeth/jaws) is a very common occurrence in individuals.
