Prevention of dental problems begins with regular visits to your Dental Hygienist! A plan of preventative dentistry is the most important service we offer. During your visit you will be seen by one of our highly-trained and educated hygienist who will provide you with all aspects of your preventative care.

A preventative care program includes regular oral exams, cleanings, and digital X-Rays. Depending on the condition of your teeth, gums, and recommendation by our Hygienist, your hygiene appointments will be scheduled every three to six months.

We see children for cleanings as early as 3 years old!

Composite Fillings

A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and Dr. Modjadidi can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.

Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are made to restore heavily filled or broken teeth. Crowns match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.

Porcelain Bridges

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth. Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. Just like crowns although highly durable, they eventually will need to be replaced or re-cemented.

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. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions such as:

-chipped teeth

-severely discolored teeth or stained teeth

-slightly crooked or misshaped teeth

-unwanted spaces in teeth

Dentures and Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from moving or shifting. A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time the patient will go without teeth.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy treats the inside of a tooth, removing infected dental pulp and replacing it with advanced materials that protect your tooth from further infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special medicated dental materials which restore the tooth to its full function.

Invisalign ®

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You'll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth!

Oral Surgery

A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Dr. Modjadidi can extract most teeth with local anesthesia.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth.

The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. with Dr. Modjadidi. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
