Bonding

A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly & painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. During the bonding procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth, strengthening them & making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Dental & Restorative Implants

Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge might). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the space of about 3 to 12 months.

Digital X-rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately.

Emergency Dental Care

We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise, & we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Whether it is something as simple as a tooth filling or a complicated procedure, we can provide you with assistance. Please give us a call.

Endodontic Therapy

With advanced & surprisingly comfortable endodontic therapy, you have an alternative to tooth removal, which will allow you to retain full use of your natural teeth. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of tissue from inside the tooth that has been damaged by trauma or infected by decay. After the pulp is removed, the pulp chamber & root canal system is cleaned, disinfected & sealed. Once a root canal is completed, the tooth will require a filling or crown, which may be completed at the same visit or up to a few weeks later.

Family Dentistry

We offer dentistry for the entire family. We understand that adults & children have different needs & we address them all. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest-quality care, while kids want to be comfortable & respected. Since we have extensive experience working with both adults & children, we can make the dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.

Healthy Gums Lead to a Healthy Body

Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease & low birth weight in babies. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque & tartar that causes gum disease (gingivitis) & tooth decay, your dental hygienist may suggest a regimen of care that requires more frequent visits to our office. These visits are recommended to remove the offending plaque & tartar.

Insurance

At Branchview Dental Care, we strive to make your dental care as hassle-free as possible. Accordingly, we accept most dental insurance & will gladly submit your insurance claims in a manner that will maximize your benefits. Just be sure to bring the necessary information with you on your first visit & we’ll take care of the rest!

Intraoral Cameras

Ever been curious about what goes on during your dental care visits? With our intraoral cameras, you don´t have to be curious anymore! We can take digital photos or videos of your teeth. With the images produced by the intraoral camera, patients can see each of their teeth & dentists can indicate problems such as broken teeth, plaque, decay, gum disease, defective fillings & so on. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees & then having it explained.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. We made this choice several years ago, making us very proficient with the techniques required to place tooth-colored fillings. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you. Your safety & aesthetics are our primary concerns!

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is key in the battle against cancer, & this is no different with oral cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, keep in mind that 25% of oral-cancer diagnoses are for non-smokers. It’s important that every patient receive a simple & pain-free exam. Remember that when caught early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90% survival rate. So don’t put off your examination another minute!

Periodontics

Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth & eventually, if left untreated, other more serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of the many effective restorative dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to its healthy, beautiful state. Let our doctors help you keep your teeth & gums strong & disease-free with regular examinations & cleanings.

Preventive Dentistry

This includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This plastic coating, which is clear or tooth-colored, is applied to deep pits & grooves. This seals them in the areas where decay is most likely to begin. At less than half the cost of conventional fillings, without anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most important preventive services we offer.

Professional Breath Control

Bad breath (halitosis) is not only embarrassing, but it may also be a sign of a medical problem. Its most common causes include dry mouth, consumption of pungent foods, insufficient tooth maintenance (such as infrequent brushing or flossing) & periodontal disease. If you suffer from chronic bad breath, we can help. We offer a full range of BreathRX® professional mouth care products to help take care of bad breath.

Purified Water

Our doctors understand your concern about water quality & the importance of keeping you & your family healthy. For this reason, we utilize bottled water during our dental procedures. By using the purified bottled water in dental procedures, we are able to get rid of any substances that may compromise the health of our clients. The safety, health & care of our patients are our top priorities. This is just another way to show our patients that we care!

Sealants & Fluoride Treatments

Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay & there are many ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can cover the deep grooves in your back teeth & extend their life while helping to prevent cavities.
