Our office is proud to offer some of the most advanced dental technology to ensure that our patients are receiving the best care available. From implant procedures that are planned and guided by digital impressions and 3-D x-ray, we are constantly searching for exciting new techniques.
Tooth-colored fillings are a more aesthetically-pleasing choice than traditional silver amalgam since they blend with the surrounding teeth. Metal fillings can expand and contract with changes in temperature, causing damage to the tooth, but tooth-colored fillings support and strengthen the tooth.
Patients with bleeding and swollen gums may be at greater risk of developing more serious oral health issues such as periodontal disease and oral cancer. Dr. Stein will determine what is causing your gums to bleed and treat them accordingly.
As part of every examination, Dr. Stein will look for any signs of cancerous or precancerous growths. A patient's risk of oral cancer can increase with the use of alcohol, tobacco, and frequent sun exposure. Similar to other forms of the disease, early detection generally leads to better outcomes.
Brushing, flossing, and following a healthy diet are excellent ways to keep teeth and gums strong and healthy. Regular, professional cleanings are just as important as a good daily oral hygiene regimen. We suggest that you visit our office twice a year to maintain great oral health.
In cases where he needs to extract a tooth, Dr. Stein can perform a bone graft to preserve or rebuild the bone. Our staff will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed. You may opt to have a bridge, dental implant, dentures, or partial dentures placed to fill the gap.
We realize that emergencies, such as those involving cracked or fractured teeth, can happen even at the most inconvenient moment. For this reason, we are prepared to handle dental emergencies; you may contact our office’s 24-hour live answering service at any time to receive assistance.
Prevention plays a key role in oral health, and fluoride treatments are an effective way to protect against tooth decay. Though fluoride is found in public water supplies, supplements, and toothpaste, direct application of fluoride can provide even greater benefits.
Constantly grinding or clenching your teeth (known as bruxism) can damage the tooth's enamel, fracture the structure of your tooth, or cause temporomandibular joint pain. Dr. Stein offers teeth grinding therapy and mouth guards at his practice to help patients break the habit.
Obstructive sleep apnea is when the tissues in the back of the throat block the airways, resulting in interrupted sleep. These interruptions result in low energy levels, stress, fatigue, and irritability. Dr. Stein can prescribe medication, physical therapy, and bite splints to improve symptoms.
Dr. Stein can implement a variety of treatments that all aim to improve your symptoms. He can prescribe medication for pain management, physical therapy to improve jaw mobility, and bite splints to protect. Dr. Stein can also recommend a softer diet to further improve symptoms.
Dr. Stein can remove inflamed and infected pulp from the root canal, clean the canal, and seal it to prevent further microbial invasion. A dental crown is then placed on the repaired tooth to restore form, function, and appearance.
Sensitive, swollen, or bleeding gums can be a symptom of a serious underlying condition. Dr. Stein offers several preventive and restorative treatments to help improve oral health and enhance your smile.
Bone grafting can restore the jawbone to its previous state following gum disease, tooth loss, or trauma. It is often a prerequisite procedure for dental implants, which require sufficient bone tissue in order to fully integrate into the jaw.
Gum recession can cause tooth roots to become exposed, resulting in dental sensitivity. When left untreated, infection can spread to the supportive bone structures, causing changes to your jawbone as well as tooth loss. Soft-tissue grafting can protect the strength and aesthetics of your smile.
If you are suffering from periodontal disease, our team can perform a scaling and root planing procedure to eliminate bacteria. During this multi-appointment treatment, we can remove plaque above and below the gum line so that your smile is as healthy as possible.
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause symptoms such as swollen gums, jaw pain, and tenderness. Dr. Stein can perform wisdom tooth extraction to give you relief from your symptoms in a relatively simple, outpatient procedure.
