Prevention Beats Correction
Unlike other dental care experts, we prefer to promote the prevention of oral disease, rather than the correction of advanced oral diseases. Because we work with our patients to stop serious oral problems before they happen, you can enjoy a healthier mouth and avoid paying hefty fees for serious corrections. A few of the preventative services we offer include:
When a dental complication rapidly advances or goes untreated for a long period of time, it can cause serious complications in your mouth. Whether you’re suffering from a severe tooth pain or not, ask us if one or more of the following restoration and or correction services is right for you. All orthodontic treatments are performed by our our orthodontic clinician.
When a tooth is chipped, worn, broken or deteriorated due to infection or lack of proper hygiene, Dr. Tabue may recommend a crown as the solution. A crown is simply a cap that is either cemented or bonded onto the top of the damaged tooth after initial preparation. Crowns can restore the original size of teeth as well as improve strength and appearance.
Your gums are part of the system of anchors that hold your teeth in place. When periodontal complications start to set in, the disease can start to affect additional areas of your mouth, leading to even more severe problems. To prevent tooth loss and other side-effects of periodontal infections, immediate treatment is necessary. We offer the following periodontal treatment services:
Some severe oral problems such as necrosis (the death of a tooth) will require oral surgery to correct and prevent the spread of infection. Dr. Tabue only recommends oral surgery when it is indicated, but will work to provide you with a safe, relaxing procedure if a tooth extraction is needed.
We perform routine dental extractions when a tooth is necrotic, broken down or no longer salvageable or in cases of impacted or unerupted wisdom teeth in order to treat or prevent complications.
In addition to our array of treatments to restore teeth, we also provide removable prosthesis services (dentures). For patients missing some teeth, removable partial dentures might be appropriate. For patients who have lost all of their teeth, complete dentures can be made.
