EMERGENCY TREATMENT

If you have a toothache or are experiencing a dental emergency, we are here to help! We understand that a dental emergency can disrupt your life and cause unnecessary pain and stress, so we always try to see our patients in for an appointment as soon as possible and to relieve any discomfort the same day. Dental emergencies can happen to patients of all ages and at the most inconvenient times, and at Tranquilo Dental we have weekend and evening hours to accommodate our patients. 

PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT

Routine dental exams are important in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. In addition, they help avoid the financial costs associated with more complex treatment plans later on. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends two yearly checkups for people of all ages.  At Tranquilo Dental, we are happy to serve the whole family by treating both children and adults.

At your checkup, you will start with diagnostic digital x-rays. The dentist will complete an Oral Cancer Screening  - this will check for any abnormalities on your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, or gums. She will also examine your mouth for any cracked or decayed teeth, evaluate existing restorations, and assess your gums for any evidence of gingivitis or periodontal disease.

FILLINGS

Fillings helps treat teeth damaged by decay. They allow the teeth to be restored back to normal function and shape while preventing further decay. It's one of the most common procedures that takes place in the dental office.

 

Before filling cavities, your dentist will numb your teeth and gums to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Next, she will remove the decay in the tooth and replace it with either a tooth-colored composite filling or a silver-colored amalgam filling. Once you're done, your mouth will remain numb for a few hours.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

A root canal or an endodontic treatment is a dental procedure required when a tooth's pulp becomes infected, abscessed, severely decayed, or injured. Often times, bacteria from deep decay can reach the pulp and infect it, however, trauma can also cause this inflammation and injury. 

If left untreated, a root canal infection can cause complications including swelling, tooth loss, or infection spreading to the face or neck. Root canal treatment preserves your tooth, relieves your pain, and can potentially prevent a dental emergency.

EXTRACTIONS

Common reasons for oral surgery or dental extractions include severe tooth decay or infection that make it impossible to save the tooth, advanced gum disease, orthodontic treatment to allow space for tooth movement, and are commonly recommended at an early age for wisdom teeth.

Whatever the reason, at Tranquilo Dental we will fully explain your upcoming procedure so that you understand all that is involved. We strive to provide you with a safe, comfortable experience when needed.

PORCELAIN CROWNS & BRIDGES

Natural-looking full porcelain crowns, also known as caps, can repair chipped or decayed teeth when a filling is unable to provide the necessary support to protect the tooth. 

A porcelain bridge is a false tooth that is used to fill the space created by a missing tooth. Porcelain bridges use the two surrounding teeth as anchors to hold a false tooth in the place where the missing tooth is. Typically, porcelain crowns are placed over the surrounding teeth, and the false tooth, known as a pontic, is fused between them. Bridges are permanent, non-removeable option for replacing missing teeth.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

In order to avoid drifting of and heavier forces onto adjacent teeth, it is important to replace teeth that have been lost. A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. The term "implant" actually refers to the anchoring portion of the prosthetic. Shaped like a screw, the implant is made of biocompatible metal or ceramic and is placed into the bone in the space formerly occupied by the tooth root. Bone then naturally grows around the implant, making it a part of the jaw. Once this process is complete, an abutment and crown are placed into the implant, allowing it to behave like a natural tooth. 

Of all the restorative choices available today, dental implants are the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth. They are also the only method of tooth replacement that does not require the involvement or preparation of adjacent teeth.

PORCELAIN VENEERS

If your teeth suffer from gaps, chips, stains, or discolorations you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers, a highly effective and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can achieve beautiful results.

Porcelain veneers are thin facings custom-made of the highest quality ceramic materials that are designed to fit perfectly over the front of your teeth. One of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, veneers can mask a host of dental imperfections to give you the smile that you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers not only enhance and improve the shape of your teeth, they are able to create an overall whiter and brighter smile.

INVISALIGN

Invisalign Aligners are the clear alternative to traditional metal braces for kids, teens, and adults. They work in a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each tray is manufactured so that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray. Trays will typically be changed every two weeks to a new set, slowly moving your teeth to their ideal position.

 

The benefits of Invisalign over traditional metal orthodontic treatment is more than just their esthetics. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can maintain normal eating habits and hygiene habits without the restrictions that traditional wire-and-brackets pose.

TEETH WHITENING

Teeth whitening or bleaching is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment that helps create a whiter, brighter smile. Having whiter teeth has become the primary esthetic concern of many patients.

While there are many over-the-counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the dentist's office. The professional whitening system available at Tranquilo Dental offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Our office sees children as early as 6 months old. Dental prevention and treatment at an early age are essential for limiting the dental needs that a child may have later on. 

 

We offer a multitude of preventative options, including First Dental Home Visits (where proper home care is reviewed with the patient and parents), examination, fluoride, sealants, and cleanings. If any decay or other findings are noted, we also offer fillings, crowns, pulpotomies, extractions, and spacers. Nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas" is available to our more nervous patients to help create a more relaxed environment.
