During your initial appointment, Forest City Dental will establish your overall oral health. Patients' oral examination will include: an oral cancer screening, a periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) and a thorough examination of teeth.
Forest City Dental recommends a bi-annual teeth cleaning to maintain and improve oral health and to have an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention. Forest City Dental’s professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing, flossing, and cleaning. The staff will use flouride, take an x-ray, and send patients on their way with a polished smile.
Based on the newest dental technologies, Forest City Dental chooses state-of-the-art restorative materials that are strong, durable, and restore the look of natural teeth.
A dental crown, or cap, is a covering that fits over a damaged, decayed or unattractive tooth. It can replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework. For patients who have a significant amount of tooth decay, crowns are a beneficial restoration option. Forest City Dental’s advanced technology has made it possible for crowns to be fabricated in a two-hour timeframe. For patients who are missing a number of teeth, a bridge is beneficial to help maintain the shape of patients’ faces, alleviate bite stress and be naturally appealing.
Patients who benefit from dentures have lost the majority of their teeth. A denture improves chewing ability and speech, and provides support for facial muscles. A denture is fragile, so Forest City Dental staff ensures the education of how to handle it with care.
Forest City Dental specializes in the correction of improper bites and tooth irregularity with both traditional and invisalign braces. Braces are recommended to help straighten teeth, remove gaps, and correct overbites. If patients prefer to have a more natural look during braces, Invisalign is recommended.
One of the most popular treatments for sleep apnea is the oral appliance, or Mandibular Advancement Device. Forest City Dental custom designs these mouth-guards from a mold of the patient’s teeth. The device works by shifting the lower jaw forward, increasing the size of the airway, and thus reducing the restriction that often leads to sleep apnea and snoring.
Veneers, also known as dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. Veneers are used to improve tooth appearance, and are bonded to the front of teeth changing color, shape, size, or length to strengthen and protect your beautiful smile.
Our online or in-office smile evaluation will allow Forest City Dental staff to know the exact results patients wish to see in their teeth whitening. Our state-of-the-art bleaching system will make teeth whiter and brighter.
Once a patient is diagnosed with gum, or periodontal, disease, Forest City Dental will use procedures other than regular cleaning to treat the disease. In the early stages of gum disease, most treatment involves non-surgical procedures. However, in more advanced stages, surgical procedures are often required, and Forest City Dental will refer patients to a caring specialist.
Root canal treatment is the safest way of saving a tooth. Often times, a tooth's soft core, the dental pulp, can become inflamed or infected. During treatment Forest City Dental will remove the diseased pulp, clean the pulp chamber and root canal of the tooth, and seal to prevent future damage.
Dental bonding procedures utilizes a composite resin and is used for a variety of structural as well as cosmetic purposes. Forest City Dental will draw a parallel between dental bonding materials and a sculptor's clay. By using dental composite resin bonding, Forest City Dental can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape, or recolor patients' smiles.
An implant is similar to a natural tooth in aesthetics. It is created of metal and porcelain, can be used to anchor dentures, and can replace missing teeth for patients with removable partial dentures.
