Dental Implants

  • Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved speech: With poor-fitting dentures can affect speech, implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.
  • A few implants placed correctly could help with the comfort of a person with dentures. Creating a snap-in type of fit that doesn’t move around and helps with eating and confidence that your teeth stay put as.
  • Improve self-esteem: Dental implants give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improve oral health: Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does, because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, this allows easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Durability: Implants are very durable and will last many years. with good care, many implants will last a lifetime.
  • Convenience: Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Root Canals

Root Canals are one of the most common dental procedures with nearly 15 million performed every year. About 95% of root canals are successful and do not require retreatment. A root canal cleans out the inside of the tooth, removing all decay and diseased tissue, this part of the tooth is called the pulp.

Dr. Pike performs this procedure very routinely. You will be numb just like any other procedure and therefore to most people’s surprise, it is a rather quick (Longest appt time is an hour) and pain free experience. If there is ever a situation where an endodontist is required such as a calcified canal, retreatment, etc… we will be happy to refer you to the correct specialist.

TMJ Treatments

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint formed where the lower part of the skull meets the upper portion of the lower jaw. This joint permits the opening, closing and sideward movement of the jaw. Patients with TMJ disorder experience both joint and muscle problems. Finding out the cause of the TMJ problem is important because the cause guides the treatment. Causes can be many such as an improper bite, injury to teeth, grinding teeth, displacement or dislocation of the disk that is located between the jawbone and the fossa, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, or a hole or perforation in the disk. Depending on the severity of the disorder, a nonsurgical or surgical approach may be warranted. We also have a specialist we can refer you to for more complicated TMJ problems.

Q What are wisdom teeth?

Also called third molars, wisdom teeth usually make their first appearance in young adults between the ages of 15 to 25. Because most mouths are too small for these four additional molars, an extraction procedure, sometimes immediately after they surface, is often necessary.

Q When should wisdom teeth be removed?

The following symptoms may indicate that the wisdom teeth have erupted and surfaced, and should be removed before they become impacted -- meaning, the teeth have surfaced and have no room in the mouth to grow. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include: pain infection in the mouth, facial swelling, swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth. Most oral health specialists will recommend an immediate removal of the wisdom teeth, as early removal will help to eliminate problems, such as an impacted tooth that destroys the second molar.

Q What problems are often associated with impacted third molars?

1) Bacteria and plaque build-up
2) Cysts development (a fluid-filled sac)
3) Tumor development
4) Infection
5) Jaw and gum disease

Q My old fillings in the front have turned dark, can they be bleached?

Unfortunately, dental bondings, composite resin fillings (tooth colored fillings) and old crowns cannot be bleached. Fillings that have discolored indicate that they are either leaking or have secondary decay, so it is best to replace them. A better choice may be to replace them with porcelain laminate/veneers for longer lasting results. Remember; only replace these fillings after bleaching in order to match the new improved color of your teeth. "How long does bleaching or laser teeth whitening really last?" It depends on many factors including your diet, the original color of your teeth, and your personal habits like smoking, drinking red wine, etc. Also darker teeth will need more than one whitening session to achieve the desired result. What's most important is what you do for maintenance. Professional office visits are not enough. You must incorporate an effective maintenance regimen at home such as using whitening toothpaste which is specifically designed to non-abrasively remove surf ace stains like coffee, tea, tobacco and red wine, as well as remove plaque and bacteria. Also use the touch up kit given by your dentist to keep bleached teeth at their whitest.

Q I have one dark tooth in the front. Will regular at-home bleaching makes it lighter?

First of all, the cause of the dark tooth must be determined. It could be due to an earlier trauma to the tooth or previous root canal treatment. In such a case external teeth whitening treatments may not help. Your dentist may try internal bleaching which may take several sessions. If not, consider dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or capping the tooth to mask the darkness.

Q Will my teeth be sensitive following Bleaching?

Teeth may be sensitive during the week following the in-office bleaching. This can be dramatically reduced by using Sensodyne toothpaste to brush your teeth the week prior to and the week following the bleaching process. Also, your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment following the bleaching process.

Q What's the difference between dental bonding and porcelain veneers?

Dental bonding is a plastic tooth colored (composite) resin material that is molded onto your teeth and hardened with a blue light. It is usually done in one visit. Little tooth reduction and usually no anesthesia is required. The disadvantages of dental bonding are:

They stain over time, may chip and may need to be replaced more often.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of stacked porcelain that are fabricated in the lab and bonded to teeth.
It usually takes 2 visits. Little tooth reduction and some anesthesia are required.
Porcelain veneers are stronger than dental bondings and less prone to staining.

Q Who is a Pediatric Dentist?

The pediatric dentist has an extra two to three years of specialized training after dental school, and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.

Q What is tooth decay (caries or cavities)?

Tooth decay is the disease known as caries or cavities -- a highly Preventable disease caused by many factors.

Q When should I begin brushing my child's teeth?

Begin daily brushing as soon as the child's first tooth erupts. A pea size amount of fluoride toothpaste can be used after the child is old enough not to swallow it. By age 4 or 5, children should be able to brush their own teeth twice a day with supervision until about age seven to make sure they are doing a thorough job. However, each child is different. Your dentist can help you determine whether the child has the skill level to brush properly.

Proper brushing removes plaque from the inner, outer and chewing surfaces. When teaching children to brush, place toothbrush at a 45 degree angle; start along gum line with a soft bristle brush in a gentle circular motion. Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower. Repeat the same method on the inside surfaces and chewing surfaces of all the teeth. Finish by brushing the tongue to help freshen breath and remove bacteria.

Q How are sealants placed?

The application of a sealant is quick and comfortable. It takes only one visit. The tooth is first cleaned. It is then conditioned and dried. The sealant is then flowed onto the grooves of the tooth and allowed to harden or hardened with a special light. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.

Q What's the Best Toothpaste for my Child?

Tooth brushing is one of the most important tasks for good oral health. Many toothpastes, and/or tooth polishes, however, can damage young smiles. They contain harsh abrasives which can wear away young tooth enamel. When looking for a toothpaste for your child make sure to pick one that is recommended by the American Dental Association. These toothpastes have undergone testing to insure they are safe to use.

Remember, children should spit out toothpaste after brushing to avoid getting too much fluoride. If too much fluoride is ingested, a condition known as fluorosis can occur. If your child is too young or unable to spit out toothpaste, consider providing them with a fluoride free toothpaste, using no toothpaste, or using only a "pea size" amount of toothpaste.

Q What is topical fluoride?

Topical fluoride is applied on cleaned tooth surfaces to strenghten teeth and help fight decay.

Children who benefit the most from fluoride are those at highest risk for dental decay. Riskfactors include a history of decay, high sucrose carbohydrate diet, orthodontic appliances and certain medical conditions such as dry mouth.
