In general dentistry, we can treat dental problems – big or small. From missing teeth to small cavities, dental problems can be addressed to save your smile from further dental work down the road.

Oral Exams & Deep Cleanings
In our office, we want to work with you to preserve your smile and catch any dental issues early. With general dentistry, there are many preventative avenues we can take to help keep your teeth safe from decay or other problems. At your dental check-up, you will receive a thorough cleaning, detailed exam and x-rays. Getting regular cleanings helps rid plaque and tartar buildup as well as any surface stains. X-rays will allow your dentist to catch any early signs of tooth decay. Regular visits help you address dental issues before they become a big expense and help keep your healthy smile on track!
Tooth Colored Fillings
For cavities, we offer tooth-colored fillings that will blend in naturally with your smile. Once decay has been removed from a tooth, a filling is used to seal the tooth and restore it. Fillings can also be used in tooth bonding. With bonding, chipped or damaged teeth can be restored, and the bonding will blend in naturally with your smile.
Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal
Although extractions are avoided as much as possible, at times a tooth extraction is necessary. Different scenarios can cause the need for a tooth extraction such as a tooth that is severely infected and endangering the surrounding teeth, a broken tooth, over-crowded teeth or impacted wisdom teeth. One or more wisdom teeth many times need to be removed due to lack of space in the mouth. If a tooth extraction is needed, your dentist will set up an appointment for the tooth removal. At that appointment, your dentist will make sure you are relaxed and your mouth is fully numbed before beginning. Then he will carefully remove your tooth, ensuring you are free from pain throughout your visit. After your tooth extraction, your dentist can discuss tooth replacement options if you are in need of filling the gap where your tooth has been removed. If you are in need of a tooth extraction in Pompano Beach, FL, call our office today to set up a consultation!
Gum Treatment & Managing Periodontal Disease
Over half of adults are likely to have some form of gum disease. The beginning stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. At this stage, gum disease is often treatable from home once it is discovered. If gum disease turns into periodontitis, it becomes more serious and may need further treatment. One of the main signs of gum disease is gum bleeding every time you floss. Advanced gum disease can lead to an increased risk of health problems including diabetes, heart attack and stroke. If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease in Pompano Beach, FL, call our office to get the help that you need!
All-Ceramic Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are often a great option for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges work by anchoring to the two teeth on either side of the gap, creating a foundation for the crown to be placed. The dental crown is color-matched to your surrounding teeth so that it blends in naturally with your smile. If you are interested in dental crowns in Pompano Beach, FL, set up a consultation today!
Single-Visit Root Canals
Root canals may sound scary, but they can ultimately save a tooth from need of extraction! More advanced than ever, root canal treatments are effective and can help preserve your tooth. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, it will require a root canal. The pulp is protected by the enamel and dentine layers. Once the infection has passed through these layers, the pulp starts to receive some of the infection. Once this happens, the pulp must be removed to preserve the tooth and also save you from a very bad toothache. We can perform a root canal in just one visit! Your dentist will make sure that you are comfortable and completely numbed before starting treatment. He will then carefully remove all areas of infection, fill the tooth and seal it. If necessary, a dental crown can also be placed the same day. If you are in need of a root canal in Pompano Beach, FL, call our office today!
If you are experiencing jaw pain, headaches, neck pain, ear pain or clicking jaw, you may have TMD. TMD is a disorder that is caused by the jaw joint and can lead to many other symptoms of pain and discomfort in and around the jaw joint.

Other times a mouthpiece may be recommended to prevent jaw tension and teeth grinding at night. There are many things that can cause TMD including teeth grinding, tension, jaw injuries and more. Your dentist can get to the root of the problem and recommend treatment to help you find relief.
