Teeth Whitening

You can whiten your teeth in just 20 minutes for much less than you’ll pay at other offices. The ideal time to have your teeth whitened is following a cleaning. Call us today to schedule your teeth whitening appointment

Veneers

These are a thin porcelain shell that is placed over the teeth to improve their look. They can change a tooth’s size, shape, length, and/or shade. Call us today to schedule a consultation.

Mouth Guards

Do you play a contact sport where your teeth and mouth are susceptible to injury? A mouth guard offers protection. Call us today to schedule an appointment to be fitted for one.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than standard X-rays. They also allow the dentist to place the X-ray into an imaging program for an up-close look.

Fillings

These are used to fill the hole left in a tooth when a cavity is removed. The filling restores the tooth to a natural shape. At LiveHealthy Dental, we use tooth-colored fillings instead of silver or amalgam ones, as they look better and require a minimal removal of the tooth structure.

Periodontal

Gum disease is very common, but also very preventable. It’s caused when a bacterial infection is developed underneath the gums and destroys the jaw bone. If not treated, tooth loss can result. Gum disease has also been linked with heart disease, stroke, premature birth, and respiratory illness.

Panorex

A panorex is used to take a 360-degree picture of your whole head, including the teeth, bones, and sinuses. This allows the dentist to better locate any potential issues and make sure everything is in order. The panorex is better able to detect certain types of structural problems and infections.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings have become a necessary part of the dental visit. As with any type of cancer, early detection is key and these screenings allow us to do so with greater accuracy. An ultraviolet light is used to give a view the naked eye simply can’t. Certain groups of the population, such as smokers and heavy drinkers, are at greater risk for oral cancer, so be sure to get screened during each visit.

Intraoral Cameras

These cameras allow us to view the entire mouth on a monitor for a much better look. Using them, we are better able to detect any potential problems. The patient also gets a chance to see his or her mouth if desired. These images are excellent when trying to get your insurance provider to approve a procedure.

Night Guards

Do you wake up with jaw pain? Grinding your teeth while sleeping can also cause tooth wear. A night guard can protect them. Call today to have a custom guard made for you!

Great offers for new patients

We will offer a $99 New Patient one-time special for any new patient without insurance. This includes the comprehensive exam and x-rays (x-rays are no charge it is the exam they pay for).

frequently asked question

What are early signs of dental trouble?

Visit a dentist if you have any of these issues or see your child having trouble chewing or complaining of soreness:

  • Mouth sores
  • Jaw pain
  • Redness
  • Swollen face or gums
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Broken teeth
  • Dry mouth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
  • Getting checked out right away prevents more serious problems and infections.
Why do I need dental exams?

Regular exams help spot trouble early to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later.

A dental hygienist will start by cleaning buildup from your teeth. Then the dentist will probe spots on the surfaces and near the gumline with special tools. If it’s been a while between appointments, you may have some sore and sensitive areas.

You should get an exam every 6 months, or more often if your dentist recommends it. Find one who makes you feel at ease and lets you know what to expect. Often the dread of seeing the dentist turns to big relief when the visit is over and you have a care plan set up. Being positive as a parent can help your kids overcome any of their fears.

Are dental X-rays safe and needed?

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology means today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Expect to get them during a first exam after not seeing a dentist for a while. This helps check tooth and gum health. If you have gum disease, the dentist may want pictures every 6 months. For regular check-ups, it’s about every 2 years, depending on your dentist’s plan.

Kids have more X-rays done than adults because their teeth are changing and because they get cavities more easily.

How do fillings work?

Cavities break through the surface enamel of teeth, and they’ll probably get bigger unless you close them off with fillings.

Your dentist will numb your mouth before drilling around the cavity to prep it. A combination of strong materials or a white mix called a composite goes into the cavity soft and then hardens as it dries. You may feel pain or pressure when getting the numbing shot and during the drilling.

Once set, fillings can last a long time but need replacing if they break or wear down.

What do sealants do?

Sealants protect against cavities that can form in the natural tiny holes and cracks on the outside of teeth. Kids from about 6 to 12 benefit from having sealants painted and hardened onto the chewing surfaces of their back teeth, or molars. Adults can get sealants as well to protect teeth that don’t have fillings.

Dentists or dental assistants put sealants on in an office visit, and it’s painless. They last around 2-4 years.

What's the best way to whiten my teeth?

Stores sell many whitening products, and you can get take-home gels and trays from your dentist, but neither is as strong as procedures done in a dental office

If you want to try an over-the-counter whitener, look for one with an ADA seal. Check with your dentist for advice before you buy, especially if you have dental work or dark stains. And don’t keep using them, or you could damage your teeth.

How can I fix my teeth and smile?

Caps and crowns cover problem teeth by surrounding them in a material that looks like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as a base to build on, then attach with special cement.

Veneers and bonding improve your smile by sticking a layer of smoother and whiter materials like porcelain or resin to the natural tooth.

Talk with your dentist about which fix is right for you.
