There are many reasons to go to the dentist, and it’s perfectly natural to feel a little nervous about any one of them. New patients come to us every day feeling anxious about:
The answer to these questions is YES! When we say compassionate dentistry, we mean it. That means earning your trust by doing everything possible to make your experience comfortable.
We aren’t interested in merely treating your problem - we want to build a long-lasting relationship with you as your trusted partner in oral health.
Our services at Harbor Point Dentistry include a broad range of procedures to prevent and treat a variety of oral health issues.
Routine professional cleanings are far more than just a thorough version of the brushing and flossing you do at home. The procedure helps to accomplish three important goals:
Our routine procedure includes:
Without good personal and professional dental hygiene, you have a much higher risk of developing periodontal disease (“gum disease”) caused by the buildup of plaque bacteria. This eventually leads to the destabilization of your gums and possible loss of teeth.
Basic restorative dentistry is a set of routine procedures that restore natural teeth back to health and ideal appearance, including filling cavities, whitening teeth and bonding veneers or caps to aesthetically damaged teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
The root canal is the innermost part of the tooth root, made of pulp that contains the tooth’s nerve endings. When this area becomes infected and inflamed, it can cause pain and/or threaten the life of the tooth. Treatment involves removing the pulp and sealing off the canal.
Extractions – Tooth Removal
When a tooth can’t be restored, an extraction is needed to prevent the spread of infection and tooth decay to the surrounding teeth. Fortunately, this can be done painlessly with proper anesthetic techniques, and there are many options available to restore your smile after the extraction.
Appliances for TMJ, Snoring, and Sleep Apnea Disorders
We create custom oral appliances, such as partial dentures to replace missing teeth, veneers and crowns to address cosmetic concerns or functional issues with your bite, and other appliances to relieve TMJ or sleep disorders.
