Preventive and Maintenance

Regular exams and cleanings are the best way to stay on top of your dental needs. Most people typically come to the dentist every 3 or 6 months, depending on their individual needs. All our patients get regular checkups so we can help you reach your oral health goals. If you have periodontal disease, or gum disease, you may need a deep cleaning (scaling and root planning) to get the plaque and tartar off of your teeth below the gums.

We strongly recommend using an electric toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste, accompanied by regular flossing. Some people find it easier to use a Hydroflosser or Waterpik, especially if you have implants. We will be happy to go over any oral hygiene questions you might have!


Restorative and Prosthodontic Dentistry

When you do have a cavity or a broken tooth, we are here to fix it! We do tooth-colored composite fillings for both front and back teeth to meet your esthetic needs. We can also do silver or amalgam fillings.

When a significant portion of your outer tooth structure (enamel) is missing or decayed, this weakens the remaining enamel that is left. In situations like this, you may need a crown (cap). We have a 3D scanner and milling unit for single crowns that can be made here in the office! This minimizes the amount of traditional impressions we have to take and send off to another lab. We typically use porcelain or ceramic crowns, but silver and gold crowns can be done as well. Veneers are also an option to help with the appearance of your front teeth.

Missing a tooth or a few teeth? Not a problem. We can fix this by making a bridge that cements on to the teeth surrounding what is missing. It spans across where the tooth was and replaces it with a life-like porcelain tooth. We can also put an implant where the tooth was, which you can read more about below.

If you are interested in something you can take in and out, we make full dentures and partial dentures. These are appliances that will replace the teeth you are missing on a full arch. You can take them out after you eat and at night to clean them, but you’ll still have that smile you want all day!


Endodontics

When the nerve of a tooth gets infected, it can give you a lot of pain. This usually happens when a cavity reaches the nerve or a tooth breaks into the nerve. We can save this tooth by doing a root canal. During a root canal procedure, the dentist will make sure you are very numb. Next, he cleans out the tooth of infection and places in a rubber material where the nerve was. Then, to make the tooth strong in the long-term, the dentist will typically put a crown on to get your tooth back to its normal self. Sometimes, root canals are more difficult than others, and are better suited for an endodontist.


Implant Dentistry

Implant dentistry is becoming the gold standard of tooth replacement. When you lose a tooth, your mouth starts to change. Your teeth start to shift, bone starts to shrink, and you lose support for the rest of your teeth. A great way to combat these changes is by getting an implant!

What’s an implant and why do I need it?

An implant is a specially treated metal screw-like insert that goes into the bone where the tooth was. We then put a crown on top of that implant to restore chewing and give you a tooth again. When you have an implant, it tricks the bone into thinking that your tooth is still there, so your bone doesn’t shrink as much, and your mouth is in a stable place.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Implants are very successful for most people, but not everyone is a candidate. We have a CBCT radiograph machine that takes a 3D image of your mouth, giving us landmarks and measurements that we use to place implants very precisely. It will also let us know if you have enough bone and would qualify for an implant. Give us a call and we can schedule you to see if you would be a good candidate for implants!


Oral Surgery

Dr. Rice is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. He will be taking care of your surgery needs. His focus will be on regular and surgical extractions, wisdom tooth extractions, sinus lifts, implant surgeries, and more. At Peace Dental Associates, when we take out a tooth, we want your recovery to be as pain free as possible. We offer a technique where we will draw blood beforehand, centrifuge it into separate prepared parts, and put it back where the tooth was to help you with healing and recovery. We have had great post-operative success with faster healing and less pain. Feel free to ask us about any questions you might have!
